LAT’s Matea Gold Moving to DC

Watch out Washington! LA Times reporter Matea Gold is hanging up her beat and headed to DC to take a new role with Tribune’s Washington bureau. For those unfamiliar, Gold is an outstanding media reporter, currently based in New York.

Internal memo from Tribune’s Kerry Luft below:

From: Luft, Kerry
Sent: Wednesday, June 23, 2010 2:56 PM
To: Subject: Staff announcement — Matea Gold

Dear all -

I’m delighted to announce that Matea Gold will be joining the Washington bureau.

Currently a correspondent based in the LA Times’ New York bureau, Matea brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record as an innovative, dogged reporter and a sparkling writer.

Her most recent assignment has been covering the media, a prickly bunch to be sure, but she’s been widely praised for her fairness and accuracy. She’s also a veteran of the presidential campaign trail, having covered Howard Dean, John Kerry, Joe Lieberman and Al Gore, among others. And yet she still likes political coverage!

In previous incarnations at the LAT she covered the US-Mexico border, as well as the rise of gangs in East LA.

She’s fluent in Spanish, a graduate of UCLA (sorry, Stanford folk) and an altogether delightful colleague.

More on her specific assignment later, but she’ll certainly be helping out on midterm elections for starters.

Please join me in welcoming Matea. She’ll be here after Labor Day, but I hope she can join us for a few visits in the meantime.

NEWS NOTES

Today’s WaPo Media Notes, Howard Kurtz: From war to politics to scandal, three recent articles were each based on solid reporting. But none acknowledged the elephant-in-the-room question of whose agenda was being advanced through the leaks that provided the news for the story.

IN MEMORIAM

NYT: William Safire, a speechwriter for President Richard M. Nixon and a Pulitzer Prize-winning political columnist for The New York Times who also wrote novels, books on politics, and a Malaprop’s treasury of articles on language, died Sunday. He was 79.

VF remembers Dominick Dunne.

Cheney’s “Favorite Channel” Doing Just Fine in Obama Admin

LATimes’ Matea Gold profiles Glenn Beck in tomorrow’s paper. Some DC highlights below and check out the entire piece here.

So much for the predictions that Fox News, reportedly the favorite channel of former Vice President Dick Cheney, wouldn’t fare well in an Obama administration.

“I read some Internet postings that we were going to die and wither away, just because we’re not on the TVs at the White House,” Shine recalled with a chuckle.

Major Garrett, the network’s White House correspondent, attributes much of the viewership boost to the sheer volume of major stories that broke in the last month. In addition, “there very may well be a curiosity about the Fox brand interacting with the Obama brand,” he said. “There may be an expectation of a higher degree of skepticism.”

Bill Shine is the network’s senior vice president of programming.

David Gregory May Be Getting Jealous of Chucky T

From the LA Times’ Matea Gold article, “For political conventions, cable networks are the go-to channels”:

Todd’s burgeoning fame has not gone unnoticed inside NBC News, where colleagues refer to him as Chucky T. On a recent afternoon, Chief White House Correspondent David Gregory encountered Todd entering NBC’s Washington bureau with a reporter.

“What, not another one about you?” Gregory asked in amazement.

The political director shrugged sheepishly.

And is that a MSM shout out to Viva la Todd?!?
