Changes A-coming to National Journal

Tim Grieve announced yesterday that more changes are coming to the National Journal. In an email to staff, he announced two new hires and two promotions. Andie Coller will be joining NJ as deputy magazine editor and Brendan Sasso as a technology correspondent.

 

Coller started her career in New York, working at the New York Post before jumping to Politico, where she has been an editor. Sasso is the lead writer for the Hillicon Valley blog at The Hill and is the second reporter from The Hill to leave for the National Journal in the last month. Ben Geman was hired in November to cover environmental issues.

Grieve also announced two promotions. Patrick Reis is moving into a new role as NJ’s Policy Editor with responsibility for health care, tech,  and defense. Matt Berman is also taking on new responsibilities as the editor of NJ’s wire team.

National Journal Rolls Out New Team of Reporters

NationalJournal.com Editor Tim Grieve is out with a memo this morning announcing brand new hires. Looks like they swiped two reporters from his former Politico stomping grounds. They include Patrick Reis (who he calls, ahem, hilarious), who he worked with at Politico Pro and Vivyan Tran, who will be their new digital editor.

“In one fell swoop, we’ve just hired a big collection of the best young journalists in Washington,” writes Grieve. “I could spend hours writing superlatives about this team, but let me get straight to the bold-faced names because they truly speak for themselves.” (Yes, please keep Summer Superlatives to us.)

AnonymASS Tipster of the Moment

AnonymASS writes in last week apropos of nothing tangible:

“This is the worst website I have ever seen you a horrendous fucking bitch.”

Note to ASS: We appreciate the incredible grammar prowess of “you a.” Please keep writing. Oh wait, is this Politico‘s Patrick Reis? Right, he much prefers to insult his own colleagues.

HUH? Soccer and Politico Team Up

The U.S. Soccer Foundation and Politico are joining forces for the first annual capital event that will include a youth clinic and a celebrity tournament.

We like how they worded the release, all oozing with alpha male confidence. Did Politico‘s Patrick Reis write this? (Right, he’s really into charity even when he’s busy throwing rotten tomatoes at colleague Mike Allen.) We’re not sure who we should be more impressed with — the folks over at U.S. Soccer or POLITICO (bolding is ours).

“The U.S. Soccer Foundation, the major charitable arm of soccer in the United States, and POLITICO, the country’s dominant political news source, announced today their partnership for the inaugural Capital Soccer Classic to be held in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, April 24, 2013.”

Summer Superlatives Winners, Part III

And the final four…

In a pool of sex machines like The Hill‘s Hugo Gurdon and Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson it’s tough to imagine anyone winning FishbowlDC’s Sexiest Male of 2011 title by a landslide.  But believe it or not, the boyish good looks of Politico’s Patrick Reis clobbered the competition with over 50% of the popular vote.  Capitol Hill Ken Doll aka Kevin Madden came in a distant second with 16.3% of the vote.  Tucker Carlson, just shy of the silver, trailed Madden by only three votes.

The stress of the spotlight proved too much for Coral Davenport, Amy Harder and Olga Belogolova.  Citing migraines and lack of sleep, NJ’s Energy trio accidentally moved sexy forward when they should have been bringing it back.  The slip bumped them into second place while WUSA-9′s Kristin Fisher took gold and the title of Sexiest Female of 2011 with 38.5% of the vote.  In case you’re wondering, sultry senior seductress Helen Thomas finished third.

The title of Most Underrated went to Ryan Grim of the Huffington Post.  The rock-solid reporter earned 36.61% of the vote, pushing him ahead of Roll Call’s Paul Singer who snagged  a respectable 28.5% of the vote.

Winning by only a hair, Cabbage Patch lookalike and 2011′s Biggest Self-Promoter Matt Mackowiak upset Daily Caller’s Kurt Bardella and stole all the glory with 36.36% of the vote to Bardella’s 34.93%.  Ouch!

Congrats to Reis, Fisher, Grim and Mackowiak!   And there you have the FishbowlDC Class of 2011!

Summer Superlatives: Sexiest Male


It’s the fourth and final day of FishbowlDC’s 2011 Summer Superlatives.  Though the results are under lock and key, the winners from our first nine categories are already locked-in. By this time tomorrow, the entire Class of 2011 will have been decided and each unknowing honoree will be a mere 48 hours from FishbowlDC glory (winners and results will be announced Monday).

But before we get going today – a tiny twist.  Due to an overwhelming tally of Twitter Feud nominations for one Ms. Betsy Rothstein and an underwhelming number for anyone else, we scrapped the category.  Instead we’re bringing sexy back like you read about and splitting the Sexiest category by gender.  Up first, the dudes…

This motley crew of spicy stallions proves “sexy” is in the eye of the anonymous tipster.  Like your studs surly and British?  Got it.  Devastatingly handsome? Yepper. Youthful?  Conservative?  Quirky?  Liberal?  Beefy?  Lean?  Check.  Check.  Check.  We’ve got something for everyone but only your vote will determine which one of these sultry sex gods will take home the title (and coordinating Speedo) of FishbowlDC’s Sexiest Male of 2011. Will it be MSNBC and The Grio’s Jeff Johnson, Politico’s Patrick Reis, The Hill’s Hugo Gurdon, Washington’s own George Clooney Kevin Madden or Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson?
