Frank Rich on the ‘Great Theater’ of Politics and Pop Culture

In the final installment of this week’s Media Beat interview, Frank Rich, New York magazine columnist and executive producer of HBO’s Veep, discusses the meshing of politics and pop culture. Having covered Broadway for years, he says the nonstop spectacles, gaffes and minutiae that become “news” just make his job more fun.

“To watch [President Obama and Mitt Romney] grapple on the one hand with the changes in the news media [and] on one hand with the world of The Voice and American Idol, The Daily Show, and SNL, it’s fascinating,” Rich explained. “But people forget this didn’t used to be the case. It was considered a huge deal when Bill Clinton played the saxophone on The Arsenio Hall Show 20 years ago. It’s a development that’s spiraling; it’s developing. It’s interesting to watch. It’s great theater.”

Watch the full video for Rich’s take on that supposed liberal media bias and to find out what he thinks the “real danger” in today’s news reporting is.

Miami Herald, Gawker Revive Hume Suicide

Gingrich, Molinari and Paxon in happier times. The infant is Susan Ruby, the couple’s child.

Earlier today the Miami Herald reported on an anti-Gingrich conference call set to transpire today between GOP Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, former Rep. Susan Molinari and former Sen. Jim Talent. They describe the relationship between GOP Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich and Romney backer Molinari as complex. The story by Marc Caputo reports that Molinari’s “hatred” for Gingrich dates back more than a decade. He brings up the longtime rumors of Molinari’s husband, former Rep. Bill Paxon, having an affair with FNC Brit Hume‘s son Sandy, who committed suicide in February 1998. At the time, he was a star reporter for The Hill. Hume had written that Paxon was believed to be a threat to Gingrich.

Gawker picked up where the Florida publication left off, questioning whether Gingrich had spilled the beans on the supposed affair — hence Paxon’s sudden disappearance from Congress and Hume’s death. An excerpt:

“The rumor, in brief, is as follows: In the summer of 1997, the Hill’s Sandy Hume—the then-28-year-old son of Fox News’ Brit Hume—broke a blockbuster story about four GOP congressman who plotted, and failed, to overthrow Newt Gingrich as Speaker. One of those men was Bill Paxon, a New York Republican who was married to fellow Congresswoman Susan Molinari. Another of the plotters, Majority Leader Dick Armey, scuttled the coup when he learned that Paxon, and not he, would replace Gingrich. Armey later disavowed the whole attempt and claimed not to have been involved.”

It’s the Washington mystery few dare to discuss in public.

  • NPR reports,Sam Zell, the no-bull billionaire who took over the Tribune Co. in December, swept in promising to turn around its troubled newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, Newsday and The Sun in Baltimore. Zell raised spirits and initially won some converts in the ailing media company. But profits have been plunging, and it’s become much tougher for him to meet huge interest payments on the company’s debt. And NPR has obtained a recording of a combative meeting Zell held with some of Tribune’s top journalists in Washington that may help explain why many of them are deeply skeptical of him.”

  • Portfolio reports, “Who is the ‘most watched’ cable news network? If you read The New York Times — or the New York Post, or The Wall Street Journal — you probably think it’s CNN. The Time Warner-owned channel ran full-page ads in all three papers (two of which, of course, are owned by Fox News parent News Corp.) boasting of being the ‘#1 Most Watched News Network in 2008.’ And that’s true, of course…unless you interpret ‘most watched’ as ‘watched by the most people’ — presumably the way most Times/Post/Journal readers would see it. If total viewers is your measure, Fox News actually won the quarter, handily; TV Newser says it was fourth among all cable networks in total viewers, versus 14th-place CNN and 27th-place MSNBC.”
