First Look: National Journal Redesign, to Serve Chicken and Waffles on Capitol Hill

National Journal 6_21 coverTomorrow, National Journal is set to celebrate the redesign of its print magazine, and we’ve got what’s slated for the cover (to the left, to the left).

Earlier this month, we wrote of a 50% increase in the outlet’s readership as well as six new hires and included an internal memo that previewed a redesign for the print magazine.

“In three weeks, we’ll launch the new, totally re-imagined National Journal magazine, packed with a fantastic collection of long-form pieces from great National Journal bylines including Marin Cogan, Tim Alberta and Peter Beinart and new-to-us voices such as Simon van-Zuylen Wood and Michael Gerson,” wrote editor in chief Tim Grieve to staff.

And tomorrow morning from 8 – 10 am, be on the look out near the Capital South Metro for free Capital Chicken and Waffles and by the Union Station Metro for free Mama’s Donut Bites along with coffee and copies of the magazine. The print edition will also be distributed Thursday morning on K Street outside the Farragut North and McPherson Square Metro stations.

Daily Beast Loses Another One -Peter Beinart to Atlantic

sinking shipPeter Beinart is leaving The Daily Beast for Atlantic Media. The “liberal Jewish blogger” (a bit on the nose, don’t ya think, Byers?) will be contributing to both the National Journal‘s magazine and TheAtlantic.com, according to National Journal spokeswoman Emma Angerer.

This follows on the heels of the inimitable Tina Brown‘s exit from The Beast  in September, and the October massacre of more than two dozen writers and editors. Andrew Sullivan (who apparently is moving to DC -welcome back, old chap!) exited earlier this year.

Now taking bets on how long before Barry Diller is doing his own reporting and changing the light bulbs.

Finally! FNC’s Bret Baier Awards Media Matters Research Fellow Trivia Prize

We can all breathe easier now that FNC’s Bret Baier has finally seen the light. Yesterday he awarded that Media Matters research fellow who has been on his ass for weeks now the grand prize for his weekly Twitter trivia contest, despite the fact that Eric Hananoki has been making a mockery of his contest.

Well, a mockery if you think it’s wrong that Hananoki ask Baier about remarks made by FNC colleague Bill Sammon about President Obama being a socialist — Sammon was caught on tape saying he he had linked Obama to socialism even though he didn’t believe it.

When the weekly Twitter trivia contest came up, Hananoki took it as a chance to ask Baier about Sammon, and tagged a question onto one of his trivia answers. Baier was not going to take that sitting down. So he began instituting strict Twitter trivia rules and awarding second place contestants first place prizes. He relentlessly blocked Hananoki with all the fair and balanced juice he could muster. But each week Hananoki was one step ahead with a new Twitter account and more right answers to Baier’s trivia questions. Funny enough, he changed his own avatar to Sammon’s picture.

This week Hananoki, again under an assumed handle — BHOisSocialist — won the game. Baier’s Q: Which liberal commentator did Brit Hume reference last night for saying “The war on terror is over”? The answer: Peter Beinart. Baier tweeted the winner as he normally does. But mysteriously, this winning tweet soon vanished into thin Twitter air. Nevertheless, he wrote Hananoki by Direct Message and asked him to pick his prize.

The Fox News mug. That should go over well in the Media Matters newsroom.

Washington Iced

dcfrozen.jpg
This week’s Time magazine cover:
WHY WASHINGTON IS FROZEN

Time contributor Peter Beinart on three ways to break the cycle.

1. More New Hampshires. If every state took New Hampshire’s example to heart—and allowed independents to vote in presidential primaries and congressional ones … more moderate candidates win. The result? “A bipartisan rebirth.”
2. Former Crossfire Hosts Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson might like this one: More Crossfires. Create new talk shows and blogs in which liberals and conservatives interrogate one another’s views – like … CNN’s Crossfire.
3. More Ross Perots. A powerful third-party voice demanding that both parties take real steps to solve problems. Republicans would still disagree profoundly…, but they would feel greater pressure to amend rather than kill them.
