Right, Left Take Marks On Marathon Bombings

Chalk it up to the often sick, sad world we live in.

The bomb smoke had barely cleared in Boston when some in the media strapped on their red and blue helmets and took partisan pot shots.

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof was the first national media figure to bring out the guns. “Explosion is a reminder that ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) needs a director,” he tweeted Monday just after two bombs had exploded at the Boston Marathon. “Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking appointment.” Accompanying Kristof’s tweet was a link to a WaPo story on the ATF’s ongoing status without a full-time director. He has since deleted the tweet and said that he “take[s] it back.”

On CNN, National Security Analyst Peter Bergen said that the attack may have been executed by al-Qaeda or “another kind of right-wing extremism.”

On MSNBC, Chris Matthews said that “normally, domestic terrorists, people tend to be on the far right.” He immediately amended his language to “just extremists.”

Esquire‘s Politics writer Charles Pierce cautioned readers against “jumping to conclusions” that the attack may have been executed by foreigners. But, noting that Monday was Patriots Day, he took a trip back in time to remember that it was “waterer of the liberty tree” Timothy McVeigh who bombed a federal building in Oklahoma City.

Fishbowl Interview With the Fresh Prince of D.C.

Say hello to Richard Prince, a veteran journalist who writes “Richard Prince’s Journal-isms,” a news column on diversity issues in the news media, for the website of
the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education. He often, and sometimes harshly, calls journalists and publications out for not covering black journos enough and even once hilariously harped on Washington City Paper and FishbowlDC that there were no blacks among the Washington, D.C.’s “Boybanders.” It’s hard to envision a black Ezzy (WaPo‘s Ezra Klein) or Hazy (MSNBC’s Chris Hayes) but life is full of wonderful surprises. Most recently Prince won the Ida B. Wells award for his diverse reporting. Read on…He may have the best new question for the FishbowlDC Interview that we’ve seen so far.

If you were a carbonated beverage, which would you be?  Dr Pepper.

How often do you Google yourself?  Not as often as I should. Too many
others with the same name.

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever said to an editor/boss (or vice
versa)? “Sure, I’ll be happy to take that assignment!”

Who is your favorite working journalist and why? Nicholas Kristof of
the New York Times travels the world reporting on outrages that would otherwise get little attention. And he was among the first to take advantage of video. But to call him my favorite would eliminate too many friends and colleagues.

Do you have a favorite word?  Party.

Who would you rather have dinner with – CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, MSNBC’s
Chris Matthews or Fox News’ Megyn Kelly? Tell us why. Matthews would probably produce the most copy.

The Earth’s human population is dying out and you must save it. You
will spend a romantic evening with either Scandal’s Kerry Washington,
any of the women from FNC’s “The Five” or MSNBC’s S.E. Cupp. Who will
it be? (None is not an option.) Kerry Washington.

What swear word do you use most often? Does “damn” count?

You’ve just been told the big news: You get to have your own Sunday
morning talk show. Who will be on your roundtable? (Pick four
journalists or pundits types.) A multicultural grab bag. It would be
counterprogramming.

On a serious note for a moment, if you could have dinner with a person
who has died, who would it be? Wonder what Martin Luther King would
say about the icon he has become.

Who is your favorite Boybander and why? (Ezzy, Hazy, Weigel,
Attackerman, Beutler) Who? Cultural disconnect.

When you pig out what do you eat? Why pig out?

What is your absolute favorite item of clothing in your closet? We want the fabric, the brand, the store and the price if possible. If it’s a certain kind of underwear we don’t want to know about it. A black cotton T-shirt from Kingston, Jamaica inscribed with a map of the city. Cost $1,100 at a tourist store. In
Jamaican dollars.

Pick one: Mad Men, Scandal or Grey’s Anatomy. Mad Men.

NEWSPAPERS | TV | ONLINE | MAGAZINES | NEWS NOTES

NEWPAPERS

NYT executive editor Bill Keller tells Politico that readers have offered to donate money to keep the Times alive, and suggested that GM probably isn’t getting similar offers. “Saving the New York Times now ranks with saving Darfur as a high-minded cause.”

That has gotten some attention on the blogosphere- check out NYT: “Screw Darfur, Save Maureen.”

Howard Kurtz: “The first lady has generated endless media chatter about everything from her sleeveless dresses to her vegetable garden. And she has a disarming candor. But this week’s coverage has an over-the-top feel. Are journalists in danger of exhausting their supply of superlatives?”

Jon Friedman: You can usually identify a New York Times column by the writer’s agenda. Nicholas Kristof wants to save Darfur. Maureen Dowd relishes sticking the needle in some Beltway blowhard. Paul Krugman seeks to put his stamp on economic policy. But what about Thomas Friedman?

Ten experts from inside and outside the newspaper industry were asked to write mission statements for the core print product, say what elements of the current paper they would include if they were starting a print product from scratch and gaze into their crystal balls to predict the industry’s future. Check it out here.

TV

LAT: “Allowing free viewing of marquee prime-time shows on the Internet is causing anxiety among some in the media industry, who worry that the practice mirrors the potentially fatal error newspapers made of losing subscribers by not charging for online editions.”

The Reliable Source confirms. Dating: “CNN anchors John Roberts and Kyra Phillips, sources close to the situation confirm. She accompanied him last month to his induction into the Canadian Broadcast Hall of Fame in Toronto; he showed up in support as she emceed the TAPS Honor Guard Gala at the Mellon Auditorium here Tuesday, benefiting families who have lost service members. Also seen together that night dining at Zola. A commuter relationship: He’s based in NYC, she’s in Atlanta.”

ONLINE

Paul Farhi: “For years, newspapers have effectively been handing their online competitors one of their chief weapons in the fight for the news audience, the AP wire. Could this situation — and the more or less collective decision to offer free access to news online — have been avoided?”

MAGAZINES

For the first time in memory, the magazine death rate has surpassed the magazine birth rate. The number of print magazines that folded in the first quarter reached 101 titles. By contrast, the number of print magazines that launched in the first quarter totaled 95.

Google is rumored to be in late stage negotiations to acquire Twitter. They can be assumed to be well, well north of the $250 million valuation that they saw in their recent funding. Twitter turned down an offer to be bought by Facebook just a few months ago for half a billion dollars.

NEWS NOTES

TMZ.com is expanding its coverage of Washington and attempting to put a new face on U.S. lawmakers with its unique coverage of body shapes, car styles, sidewalk interviews, and legal snafus. TMZ’s Harvey Levin was in Washington on Thursday looking to hire a second D.C. staff member.
