Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 5.21.48 PMSo… Water under the bridge, right? Ahhhh.

In a HuffPo Live interview with Marc Lamont Hill, Chuck Todd discussed his relationship with former Meet the Press host, David Gregory.

When asked whether interactions with Gregory were still awkward in any way, Todd uncomfortably sighed, “about as awkward as being asked questions about it.”

Ouch.

NBC’s Chuck Todd will sit down for an exclusive interview with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Sunday’s Meet the Press. Jindal, an outspoken opponent of the Affordable Care Act and potential Republican presidential candidate in 2016, will discuss his decision not to expand Medicaid in his state, just one day after open enrollment begins for the second time under the health care law.

The governor is also slated to discuss the politics behind the Keystone XL pipeline, as well as the actions President Barack Obama will reportedly take to grant amnesty for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States.  The crew will also discuss his ambitions for 2016.

Rising Star Finalists

mblogo.jpgAfter the jump, you’ll find the finalists for FishbowlDC’s Rising Star competition. Congrats to everyone for being nominated and making it into the 2nd round in our first “Rising Star” competition. The winners will accompany mediabistro.com and FishbowlDC to the National Press Foundation Dinner, with a seat next to a high-profile guest (and if you’re a high profile guest who wants to go, let us know).

Plus: We’ll be giving away seats to lucky winners we’ll pick at random. Click here to enter the raffle (send your name, affiliation and contact info).

Now, before you write in to complain about so-and-so not getting included, etc., etc., let’s explain a few things.

1.) If you didn’t get nominated, you didn’t get considered. The pool of contenders was chosen by you.
2.) Some (actually, many) people were not included because, in our opinion, they were already “risen”, not “rising” (For instance: Ed Henry was nominated. Funnily enough, so was Helen Thomas). So, for some of you, it’s a compliment.
3.) We did our best to limit the number of finalists from each publication, from certain beats, and from each medium (print, radio, broadcast, etc.).
4.) Most importantly, we’re well aware that the list is imperfect. We did our best. Our apologies in advance if you felt snubbed. Dorian, Inky and Patrick discussed the finalists but the finalists were mostly determined by consulting with employees at various news organizations for their insight, thoughts and advice.

Okay, so this is how it’s going work: After the jump is the list of finalists. If you’re already attending the National Press Foundation Annual Awards Dinner on February 22, let us know. Unfortunately, we’ll have to remove your name from consideration, since that means you won’t be able to sit with us (*tear*). Also, if you simply don’t want to be considered, please also let us know. Then, with the list tweaked as/if needed, we will open up voting Thursday morning and it will go through Monday.
