    REVOLVING DOOR

  • The Washington Business Journal reports, “The Washington Post Co. has appointed the chief executive of Xerox Corp. to its board of directors. Ann Mulcahy, who has received national attention for turning around Xerox since she took the helm in 2001, will take the 11th post on the board of the D.C.-based company.”

    NEWSPAPERS

  • Check out E&P’s “Monthly Top 30 Most Popular Newspaper Sites

  • The Dirksen Congressional Center annonced, “The Dirksen Congressional Center invites applications for grants to fund research on congressional leadership and the U.S. Congress. A total of up to $30,000 will be available in 2008. Awards range from a few hundred dollars to $3,500. The competition is open to individuals with a serious interest in studying Congress. Political scientists, historians, biographers, scholars of public administration or American studies, and journalists are among those eligible. The Center encourages graduate students who have successfully defended their dissertation prospectus to apply and awards a significant portion of the funds for dissertation research.” All proposals must be received no later than February 1, 2008.

  • Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler, the author of The Confidante: Condoleezza Rice and the Creation of the Bush Legacy, is the guest of a brown bag lunch discussion held by the World Affairs Council of Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, January 22nd 2008 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM. Sign up here.

  • Pew Weekly News Interest Index shows, “There has been no shortage of drama in either party’s early presidential primaries, but in the public’s view the Democratic contest has been far more compelling. Four-in-ten Americans (40%) say they find the Democratic primary race very interesting, nearly double the proportion describing the Republican race as very interesting (21%).”

  • The AP reports, “The state of New Hampshire is getting out of the business of issuing identification cards to members of the news media. The man who handled the chore — Jim Van Dongen of the state Department of Safety — says the decision is based on the proliferation of online and specialty news outlets and technology that allows just about anyone to call himself a journalist. Van Dongen says that put him and his bosses in the uncomfortable position of issuing cards to all comers or having to decide who is a legitimate journalist. News organizations now will have to issue their own identification cards for events that require them.”

  • The Los Angeles Times reports, “How much should a company’s culture reflect its chief executive, especially one who prides himself on being a blunt and innovative — some might say abrasive — businessman? If you’re new Tribune Co. CEO Sam Zell, the answer seems to be: A lot. At least that was the feeling workers got Wednesday with the distribution of a new employee handbook, a document that’s nothing like the mind-numbing, lawyered gobbledygook in most corporate manuals.”

  • Daniel Finkelstein writes “an open letter to readers of The New York Times” saying, “I understand that your newspaper of choice has asked William Kristol, the conservative commentator, to provide an opinion column for the paper. Since I am the op-ed editor of what you Americans call The Times of London, I have followed the controversy that the appointment has caused with great interest. And with my mouth wide open.”

  • A CNN release announced, “As the nation honors the 79th birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., on Monday, Jan. 21, CNN delves deep into race and politics as it broadcasts the latest Democratic presidential primary debate from Myrtle Beach, S.C., and a live Anderson Cooper 360º special about the influence of race upon politics in America. From 8 p.m. to 10 p.m, CNN will host the two-hour debate with the Congressional Black Caucus Institute, live from the Palace Theater.

  • FOX News Channel announced, “FOX News Channel (FNC) will provide live coverage of the Nevada Caucus and South Carolina Republican Primary on Saturday January 19, 2008. Washington, D.C.

  • AJR reports, “The media’s addiction to polls and to predicting the future is obviously not new. Critics have railed against it for years. The compulsion to be ahead of the game even caused the television networks to make the wrong call on the 2000 presidential election. You’d think that humiliation was so huge that it would serve as a cautionary whale (hat tip to ‘Juno’ for that great line) as well as a cautionary tale for the political punditocracy. But no.”

  • Yesterday, “CREW and Media Matters for America sent a letter to CNN’s U.S. President Jonathan Klein, asking that former Christian Coalition head Ralph Reed, a proven liar with a deep bias against one of the major Republican candidates, no longer be afforded the opportunity to be a part of CNN’s self-proclaimed “best political team on television.’ Most recently, Reed provided commentary as a ‘Republican strategist’ during the New Hampshire presidential primary.”

  • Media Biz reports, “Are we in a recession or not? Well, investors in the big five media conglomerates seem to think so. Shares of my parent company Time Warner (TWX) are down nearly 5 percent. And it’s not alone. News Corp. (NWS) has fallen 7 percent this year. Walt Disney (DIS) is down nearly 8 percent in 2008. Viacom (VIAB) has shed 9 percent of its value while its former corporate sibling CBS (CBS) has plummeted 14 percent. CBS, Time Warner, Disney and News Corp. are all trading near 52-week lows, and each stock is down between 15 percent and 20 percent for the past three months. Viacom, 2007′s best-performing media stock, has held up slightly better over the past few months thanks to a rebound in ratings at the company’s cable networks, as well as strong box office performance from its Paramount and DreamWorks movie studios. Viacom’s stock is about 20 percent above its 52-week low.”

  • TVNewser reports, “CNN Correspondent Zain Verjee was hit in the back by a tear-gas canister while covering the protests in Kenya yesterday. Verjee was fired on by Kenyan police, in what she called an ‘unprovoked’ attack.”

  • Jon Stewart took MSNBC and the entire media to task last night on A Daily Show for their focus on, ‘America’s favorite fight starter: Race!’” For more, click here.

  • TVNewser reports, “As part of day-long coverage related to issues of race in America, CNN will present a Democratic candidate debate in Myrtle Beach, SC this Monday, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day. So far three candidates have met the criteria to attend: Sen. Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Sen. Barack Obama. A CNN insider tells TVNewser, ‘it still remains possible’ for Rep. Dennis Kucinich to meet the criteria of having 5% support in national polls.”

  • A tipster writes in, “Will the media matters campaign against Chris Matthews yield anything? Yes. A spike in ratings among the media. Let’s just admit it. HRC is never going to receive fair, objective coverage. There’s just too much history. Matthews is just more honest about it than others. We should give him an award.”

    ONLINE MEDIA

  • Tech Crunch reports, “Social travel site WAYN is allegedly in talks with AOL over a possible $200m sale to the consumer portal giant. A spokesperson for the UK startup denied that any sale talks are taking place.”

  • E&P’s Greg Mitchell writes, “It’s good to see Upton Sinclair back in the news again amid the raves (which I don’t quite share) for the new film ‘There Will Be Blood,’ very loosely based on his 1927 novel ‘Oil!’ Even though Sinclair earned a nod in many of the articles and reviews of the film, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis, few have commented on the original source material.”

  • The Boston Phoenix’s Steven Stark writes, “If the surprise results in New Hampshire had an unanticipated benefit, it is this: they exposed the myth, once and for all, that the Internet has made political reporting and analysis far better than it once was. Alas, the opposite is true.”

  • Media Shift’s Mark Glasser asks, “Major media sites have started to get the religion of audience participation, but there’s been one big hitch: How do you harness the audience’s knowledge and participation without the forums devolving into a messy online brawl that requires time-intensive moderation?”

  • Chris Mooney writes, “As a journalist and especially as a blogger, I sure picked a hell of a time to move to Los Angeles. No sooner did I settle here late last fall than my fellow writers in the film and television industries went on strike. I’ve never done their kind of writing in a professional capacity, but the more I’ve engaged with the issues at the center of the current dispute between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, the more I’m convinced that bloggers could soon find themselves making similar complaints against their own employers.”

  • Don Wycliff writes, “I don’t know whether YouTube.com is considered part of the ‘news media’ yet, but in the midst of the Obama-Clinton hoo-hah of the last several days the popular video Web site has performed perhaps the most basic and indispensable function of journalism: to serve, in the words of journalism educators Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Paul Waldman, as the ‘custodian of fact.’”

  • InternetNews.com reports, “Call it a photo finish. A split decision. Too close to call: The leading online tracking firms are split over which Web property garners the most traffic. According to comScore, Yahoo — perennially ranked as the most visited destination on the Web — held onto its lead in December, staving off surging Google for at least another month.”

  • Journalism.co.uk reports, “The editor of The Sun newspaper told a Lords’ Committee the internet edition can’t yet replicate the economic operations of the newspaper.”

  • The Los Angeles Times reports, “Google’s expanding lobbying operation scored two significant victories last year: It convinced federal regulators to approve its $3.1-billion purchase of online ad company DoubleClick Inc., and to partially open new wireless airwaves so the company could more easily make its products available on them. Though D.C. veterans say Google has a long way to go before its lobbying clout matches its market valuation, the company is no longer viewed as a wide-eyed Washington freshman.”

  • Business Courier reports, “A social networking Web site that will focus on the 2008 elections was launched Wednesday by E.W. Scripps Co. RedBlueAmerica will serve as a free public forum for user-generated content, including blogs, personal profiles and videos, Scripps said in a news release. It will also offer political news, e-mail service for subscribers, a daily public opinion poll and a feature called ‘Truth or Not’ that will examine ‘the veracity of factual claims made by high-profile newsmakers and others,’ according to the release.”

  • MediaShift reports, “Major media sites have started to get the religion of audience participation, but there’s been one big hitch: How do you harness the audience’s knowledge and participation without the forums devolving into a messy online brawl that requires time-intensive moderation?”

    MAGAZINES

  • Howard Mortman writes in the Weekly Standard, “Here’s an odd little Hillary Clinton proposal: She wants a government blogging team. At first blush, the idea could cut either way–nutty or silly. We might even call it ridiculous, if we weren’t busy laughing at it.”

  • Alex Kingsbury, associate editor for U.S.News & World Report, was featured Tuesday night on NBC Nightly News as part of a story about gender bias in college admissions, which cited a U.S. News June 2007 special report ‘Admittedly Unequal.’”

  • Mike Allen Gives April Ryan A Baby Rattler

    Yesterday on FOX, the Politico’s Mike Allen gave American Urban Radio’s April Ryan a Tiffany baby rattle (Ryan is expecting) and anchor Molly Henneberg gave her “props” for Ryan’s correct prediction a few weeks early that the President would commute Libby (go to roughly 1:10 in the clip).

    The rattler:

    tiffanyrattler.jpg

    Allen also sticks up for the NYT’s David Sanger today. From Allen’s “Playbook“:

      Memo to conservatives: My e-mail traffic suggests that some in talk-radio world may try to go down the road of, ‘Well, what do you expect from The New York Times?’ You should know that David Sanger is extremely respected in this administration. He’s viewed as non-political and highly knowledgeable about foreign affairs, and the highest levels at the National Security Council and State Department talk to him. With a small discount factor for the ’24′-ish elements, this piece almost certainly reflects decision-makers’ thinking.

    Molly Henneberg In Virginia Living Magazine

    Molly H  in Virginia Living.jpg

    FOX News Channel correspondent and Virginia hometown girl, Molly Henneberg was profiled in this month’s issue of Virginia Living Magazine.

    On Working In Cable News:

    “The thrill never goes away,” she says. “When you go down Pennsylvania Avenue, there are so many tourists, and I want to take them all in with me. But then I’ve got to get to work.”

    On the Best Place to Eat:

    Elevation Burger in Falls Church. “I’m not even a huge hamburger fan,” she says, “but theirs are awesome.”

    Ernesto Londono: The FishbowlDC Interview

    elondono.jpgFor the next few weeks, we’re going to feature some of our “Rising Star” nominees in our FishbowlDC Interview series. Today, say hello to the Washington Post’s Ernesto Londono.

    How many suits do you own? Three. I hate suits; they make me feel itchy and dorky.

    What word do you routinely misspell? Ostracize

    Did you see Brokeback Mountain? Yes, on a date. Cute medical resident. It was opening night and the theater was packed, so we ended up getting second-row seats. Date never called back.

    Did you see The Da Vinci Code? No. I wasn’t interested.

    What’s the name of your cell phone ring? My Post-issued Blackberry only has that annoying old-school, beeping ring. I’d like to get the ring tone one of my Iraqi colleagues has: a loud, booming prayer to Imam Hussein.

    What time did you get up this morning? 11 a.m. But I went to bed late. Filing dailies from Baghdad means Washington routinely keeps you awake until 3 a.m.

    When did you last cry and why? Late December, sitting at an airport terminal in Bogota. I was reading a newspaper that published Christmas letters written by people with kidnapped relatives. I didn’t cry; I sobbed. Leaving home always makes me sad.

    Which of the seven deadly sins are you? Gluttony. But I think all crime reporters should be exempt.

    Beach, city or country? City.

    Would you say you’re cute? Pretty? Hot? Beautiful? I came in dead last in media bistro?s hottest off-air journalists contest last year. I think my campaign was doomed after the Post’s then-Maryland editor said it would be “weird” for him to vote for me. Nothing like having editors who’ll go to bat for you when you need most.

    Read the rest when you click below…(and see previous FishbowlDC interviews: Julie Mason, David Shuster, Joe Curl, Alex Pareene, Peter Beinart, Jonah Goldberg, Megyn Kendall, Ana Marie Cox, Jim Brady, Howard Mortman, Amy Argetsinger, Jose Antonio Vargas, Chuck Todd, Tom Gottlieb, Kelly Ann Collins, David von Drehle, David Lat, Mark Leibovich, Zain Verjee, David Plotz, Paul Kane, Karen Travers, Mark Halperin, Hugo Gurdon, Greg Kelly,Ken Rudin, John Dickerson, Anne Schroeder, Spencer Ackerman, Bret Baier, Bob Sellers, Greta van Susteren, Danielle Jones, Jonathan Salant, John McCalla, Pam Hess, Ryan Grim, Marc Ambinder, Marty Kady, Jack Shafer, Annie Lou Bayly, Jerry Zremski, Charlie Cook, Dave Hughes, Howard Fineman, Katie Tarbox, Mark Segraves, Chris Cillizza, Tom Sietsema, Bill Triplett, Robin Givhan, David Brody, Norah O’Donnell, Carl Cannon, Jordan Lieberman, David Folkenflik, Molly Henneberg)
