Libit Bids Farewell to Colleagues at Local 16

homemade-spaghetti-sauce.jpg

Politico reporters came together Saturday night at Local 16 to say goodbye to colleague Daniel Libit. A wonderful sendoff, we’re sure.

But a note to Politico partygoers: Politico reporter Manu Raju is not Italian. In the list the tipster sent to Fishbowl, Manu’s surname (as shown below) renamed him after a Spaghetti sauce. Perhaps it was the liquor talking – the time was 3:07 a.m. when the note was sent. Or maybe Raju has a nickname in the works.

Regardless, those in attendance, said an e-mail, included: “Tim Alberta, Josh Kraushaar, Tim Grieve, Andy Barr, Erica Lovely, Meagan Bond, Sydelle Moore, Michael Calderone, Paige Connor, Kendra Marr, Meredith Shriner, Glenn Thrush, Martin Kady, Andie Collier, Matt Wuerker, Manu Ragu [STET], Ken Vogel, Kim Kingsley, Jmart.”

Best wishes to Libit in the Windy City, wherever he lands. (At last mention, he said his resume was under review at a number of Starbucks).

> Update: A crime has been committed against FishbowlDC — most likely a reporting while intoxicated (RWI) crime. To be sure, this is a lesson to me not to trust some a–hole writing us at 3 a.m. inventing some party in his or her head. Actual partygoers (with their correct spellings) include: Tim Grieve, Manu Raju, Josh Kraushaar, Andie Coller, Erika Lovley, Tim Alberta, Kendra Marr, Sydelle Moore, Meagan Bond and Andy Barr. Memo to VandeHarris: This is your “Winning the Dawn?” A thank you to Libit for setting the record straight. Libit, by the way, found this whole thing “HILLLLLARIOUS.”

ABC’s Sam Donaldson on This Week says he’s like to ask Fidel Castro before he dies if he killed President John F. Kennedy. “In his dying breath I’d like to be at [Castro's] bedside and say, did you do it? Meaning November 22, 1963.”

Is PBS “recklessly promoting” Al Jazeera? Via Romenesko: Fox News’ Eric Shawn is concerned about public TV’s “WorldFocus” airing reports from Al Jazeera English, while PBS ombud Michael Getler isn’t so bothered. “I think it is a plus for American viewers to see and understand what is on Al Jazeera English, and that viewers of public broadcasting are quite able to make up their own minds about whether what they are watching has news value or is propaganda.”

Radio talk show host and regular cable news guest Michael Smerconish was on CNN’s Reliable Sources this weekend to talk about his new book “Morning Drive: Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started Talking.” Check out his dish about Fox News’ Glenn Beck, NBC’s David Gregory and CNN’s Larry King here.

NYT‘s David Carr: Cable news stations have been criticized for “event-izing” all manner of minor news occurrences — President Obama’s first news conference comes to mind. But the Tax Day Tea Party was all but conceived, executed and deconstructed in the hothouse of cable news wars.

NEWS NOTES

DCRTV checks out former WUSA anchor Mike Walter‘s documentary “Breaking News, Breaking Down.

TWT’s “Anguish of story can haunt journlists“: Journalists who peer into the abyss of war, crime, and natural disasters as part of their jobs can end up as emotionally scarred as the victims they never imagined joining. “Journalists can experience powerful frustration and demoralization,” said Dr. Frank M. Ochberg a psychologist who specializes in trauma.

Also from TWT- a sitdown with “State of Play” director Kevin Macdonald. “There have been plenty of Washington-set political thrillers, so he tried to make his new by ‘approaching the characters in a different way” and “showing Washington in a different way.’”

More on “State of Play” from DCRTV: Longtime DC sportscaster Frank Herzog gets a part. Also, Chris Matthews, Lou Dobbs, Jim Vance, Jule Carey, Chris Gordon, Eun Yang, and Denae D’Arcy play TV “reporters” in the movie.
