Yahoo News’ Olivier Knox Offers Look at President Obama’s ‘Secret Schedule’

whitehouseWhile much – or some – of the President of the United States’ daily schedule is listed online for public consumption, his private schedule, detailing a more minute-by-minute look at Obama’s day, was the focus of a recent piece by Yahoo News’ Olivier Knox.

“It’s a document so closely held that Obama aides, like their counterparts under George W. Bush, are expected to dispose of it at day’s end in ‘burn bags’ typically reserved for documents so sensitive they cannot be consigned to mere shredding,” wrote Knox.

The private schedule is delivered in hard copy form at 7am to the desks of senior aides and includes a disclaimer showcasing the sensitivity of the document – “This schedule contains sensitive information and is provided for your information only. It may not be distributed, forwarded, or printed without the express written permission of the Director of Scheduling.”

brendan-buckIn celebration of his move as press secretary for Speaker Boehner to America’s Health Insurance Plans, Brendan Buck joined with friends Monday evening to toast to his new gig.

Something heartening…

“Awaiting my oldest friend — we were 3 when we met — as he makes DC stop on his 1st family trip to the US. #psyched” — Yahoo! News‘ D.C. Bureau Chief Olivier Knox.

Important Q to Ponder: “Skakel was an adult in charge of his own defense. Why would he deserve a new trial based on ineffectiveness of his own lawyer?” — Commentary‘s John Podhoretz.

Uh oh.

“4:42am and it’s already ‘one of those days.’” — ABC7′s Sara Van Aernum.

images-3SHOTS FIRED!

“Yo, @CarlosLozadaWP read your paper’s Jofi Joseph tick-tock today. Search the words ‘Daily Beast’ or ‘Rogin.’ Speak truth to power!” — Politico‘s Glenn Thrush to WaPo Outlook Editor Carlos Lozada. This was in response to Lozada’s recent assertion that Thrush had failed to give Daily Beast‘s Josh Rogin his deserved credit for breaking the anonymous NSC tweeter  story. Lozada didn’t respond to Thrush’s Twitter water balloon, but he did what any self-respecting journalist would do — he retweeted it. For a backgrounder, see our writeup on this situation.

Journo has stress dream

“Woke up from 5 am stress dream that I was going on @FBNStossel unprepared to precisely explain Medicare funding mechanisms.” – Reason Editor-in-Chief Matt Welch.

dave-weigel

All in good fun, we’re sure, Yahoo! NewsOlivier Knox is calling for a birthday Twitter roast for Slate‘s Dave Weigel.

Happy Birthday Dave! We have absolutely nothing bad to say about him except he’s rather icy at parties these days. Um, Dave? Where did all the love go?

This could be a long day. Read more

Morning Chatter

Journo’s 4-year-old hears MLK for first time

“Hearing Martin Luther King’s voice in @michele_norris report, 4yr old asked ‘What’s that sound, daddy?’ So I got to tell her.” — NPR’s Steve Inskeep.

Gasp! No more bikes. Life is over. 

“No worse way to start the morning than going to 2 @bikeshare stations that don’t have any bikes… 1 I could understand but 2 #bikesharefail” — Katherine Kennedy, investor and philanthropist.

BuzzFeed publicist gets promotion

“Hearty congrats to @McCollumAshley, @Buzzfeed’s PR whiz, who’s now the VP of business development & communications.” – NYT‘s Brian Stelter.

Regret is…

“And now I’m regretting tweeting out Director of National Intelligence conference call hold music. Funny, yes. Meaningful, no.” — Yahoo! NewsOlivier Knox.

More Brian Lewis fallout at FNC

Summer Superlatives 2013: Class Clown

Who’s the funniest journalist in Washington? I suppose first we must distinguish, are we laughing with them or at them? But for purely comedic purposes let’s say these are journalists who are consistently found to be amusing among their peers. This year’s lineup includes: Yahoo! NewsOlivier Knox (he was on last year’s nominee list but Sirius XM’s  Julie Mason beat him out and we’re giving him another shot), BuzzFeed‘s John Stanton (who tries unusual hangover remedies just for fun and notices a wide variety of douchebags on the streets of Washington), The Daily Caller‘s Will Rahn (the brainchild of many antics at the publication such as this; and if you haven’t seen “And the Wandering,” his dramatic reading of Politico‘s Dylan Byer‘s personal blog from when he was 19, watch here), National Journal‘s Elahe Izadi (she does standup in real life), Reason.com Editor Nick Gillespie (whose exceedingly dry humor could keep you laughing at boring Washington cocktail parties) and The Sunday Times Washington Bureau Chief Toby Harnden (who routinely says things like “gets on my tits” for gets on my nerves–he’s British, so he’s excused).

Carlos Dangerously-Named Journos

Anthony Weiner admitted yesterday to using the online alias Carlos Danger to carry on a strange Internet affair with a 22-year-old woman. If you’re anything like us, that got you wondering how Weiner came up with such a great alias. Already having graced the news media by having the last name Weiner, he’s provided another amazing name to fill headlines and Twitter jokes.

But lets face it, sometimes we all need an alias, whether it’s to ghost-write a book or set up a Swedish bank account to hold mounds of embezzled money. And if you haven’t found your inner-Carlos Danger yet, don’t worry, it’s not hard at all. Yesterday afternoon, Chris Kirk of Slate posted a Carlos Danger Name Generator that figures it out for you. We of course had to figure out the alter-egos of the FBDC staff, as well as a few journos around D.C. Enjoy.
