Peter Cook: The FishbowlDC Interview

Say hello to Peter Cook- not the guy who married and divorced Christie Brinkley- Bloomberg’s Washington correspondent and morning news programming anchor.

What does your morning reading list include? At 3:55am I go straight to Bloomberg top stories on my Blackberry (with the lights off so I don’t wake my wife). I read the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and NY Times time permitting. I leave so early in the morning, only the Journal has been delivered to my house.

What single person has played the biggest role or has had the biggest influence on your career? My father. He’s the definition of integrity.

How many suits do you own? 10 but they don’t all fit.

What is the name of your cell phone ring? It’s the default ring. Everyone in the office hates it and I have no idea how to change it.

How many emails do you receive a day? How many do you answer? 500+… I respond to 30. Sorry if I missed yours.

Where do you power-lunch? At the world famous Bloomberg canteen.

What’s your favorite or go-to drink? Pacifico with a lime.

Who is your favorite active journalist? Bob Schieffer… great guy and a great role model.

What subject line in an email grabs your attention? “This is your wife. Please read me!”

What section of the Sunday Washington Post do you read first? Sports

If you ran a doctor’s office or a bank, what cable station would you have on in your waiting room or lobby? Bloomberg Television or ESPN

Who would you most enjoy seeing parodied on SNL? Somali pirates

Leno or Letterman? Stewart or Colbert? Letterman & Stewart

Taking a cue from The Chris Matthews Show here, tell us something we don’t know… I’m not the Peter Cook who married and divorced Christie Brinkley, although I have received some of his mail.

    NEWSPAPERS

  • Rush and Malloy reports, “It must be exasperating to be Christopher Hitchens. Recently voted the fifth most important intellectual in the world, Hitchens was nice enough to the respected war correspondents on the panel he moderated Thursday at the IFC theater, but he eviscerated members of the audience whose comments or questions he deemed not quite up to par.”

  • The Press Gazette reports,Rupert Murdoch’s acquisition of the Wall Street Journal will not have an impact on the Financial Times because there is a ‘fundamental difference’ between the two titles, the FT Group chief executive has told analysts”

    ONLINE MEDIA

  • Bloomberg reports, “AOL, the Time Warner Inc. unit trying to catch up to Yahoo! Inc. and Google Inc. in Internet traffic, plans to start at least a dozen Web sites in the next six months to attract more advertisers.”

  • The New York Review of Books writes, “Wikipedia: The Missing Manual”

  • The Times Online reports, “New York Times under fire for slow switch to online”

  • The Press Gazette reports, “Jobs question as Reuters’ £8.7bn merger is agreed”

  • Blogger News Network reports,Maureen Dowd starts her New York Times column on Sunday, ‘Channeling her inner Cheney, Hillary Clinton dropped a fear bomb, as Michelle Obama might call it, implying in a new ad that if her opponent is elected, your angelic, innocent, sleeping children could die in a terrorist attack’ — a reference to her latest campaign ad (video link), which asks when the phone rings at 3 a.m. in the White House because something has happened ‘in the dangerous world,’ who do you want answering the phone? Not to be outdone, Dowd’s counterpart Frank Rich titles his column, ‘McCain Channels His Inner Hillary’ and writes that the presumptive GOP candidate ‘is emulating almost identically the suicidal Clinton campaign against Mr. Obama. He has mimicked Mrs. Clinton’s message and rhetorical style, her tone-deaf contempt for Mr. Obama’s cultural appeal, and her complete misreading of just how politically radioactive the war in Iraq remains …’ And recently within two days of each other, Boston Globe columnist Ellen Goodman and Dowd both argued that Barack Obama is channeling his inner woman. (Goodman: ‘Now we see a woman running as the fighter and a man modeling a ‘woman’s way’ of leading.’ Dowd: ‘The first serious female candidate for president was rejected by voters drawn to the more feminine management style of her male rival.’) So McCain is channeling his inner Hillary who is channeling her inner Cheney, and Obama is channeling his inner woman — which should mean that like McCain he is channeling his inner Hillary since she is the only woman in the race — but doesn’t, since Hillary is channeling her inner Cheney. Got that?”

    BOOKS

  • New York Magazine reports, “The Hachette Book Group recently distributed hundreds of Sony Readers to its editors and publishers. ‘People are evangelical about it,’ says publisher Jonathan Karp, who has about 30 submissions on his Reader. ‘If you’re traveling, this is so much easier than lugging around manuscripts. It’s good for reading in bed, too.’ Agents selling to Hachette’s imprints are now required to e-mail their texts to acquiring editors, who download them to their Readers; paper manuscripts are no longer routinely circulated.”

  • Radar reports, “The mere mention of technology or sociology makes me want to run to The Hills and hide. Once nestled comfortably in the folds of a vapid yet soothing conversation between Heidi and Spencer at Don Antonio’s, I often forget that science even exists. It might be, however, that my aversion to expanding beyond the reaches of gossip and reality TV, makes me the ideal target audience for Clay Shirky’s excellent Here Comes Everybody, The Power of Organizing Without Organizations. All it took was peppering social-networking theory with a little blogging, Facebook, and Paris Hilton context to get me in step with the CNET crowd!”

  • Bloomberg reports, Ted Leonsis, vice chairman emeritus of Time Warner Inc.’s America Online unit and owner of the Washington Capitals, talked with Bloomberg’s Peter Cook in Washington on Oct. 24 about owning a National Hockey League franchise, AOL’s growth and business in the nation’s capital. Leonsis is also chairman of Revolution Money.”

  • Forbes reports, “That enterprising film directors, musicians and other content creators can reach online audiences without corporate intermediaries is a game-changing development for traditional media companies. Amid the upheaval, a few themes emerged during the Forbes MEET conference that should both reassure and further worry those companies.”

  • Media Guardian reports, “‘Everyone should be worried when Murdoch goes head-to-head,’ Murdoch’s biographer Michael Wolff tells Guardian columnist Roy Greenslade.”

  • Slate’s Jack Shafer writes, “It stands to reason that Howard Kurtz, the reporter who popularized the phrase “the Clinton propaganda machine” by including it in the subtitle of his 1998 book, Spin Cycle, would still be tracking the couple’s devious ways with the press. … In his new book, Reality Show: Inside the Last Great Television News War, Kurtz captures Hillary Clinton—or at least her campaign—at her wily best as she negotiates the terms of engagement with the network news anchors after announcing her candidacy.”
