Despite Power Outage, CQ Roll Call Powers On

Let there be light!  And so there was at CNN’s Washington bureau as of one hour ago…but the blackout at CQ Roll Call rages on.  Thanks to Pepco, both newsgroups were without power since Tuesday afternoon.

So you might be wondering, how exactly does a newsroom function when their utility company doesn’t?  Luckily, we have the answer in the form of an internal memo from Roll Call Editor Scott Montgomery and Publisher Mark Walters.  The congratulatory message walks through the trials and tribulations their team overcame to put out Wednesday’s paper on time.

While management continues sorting out what comes next, former HOH writer Emily Heil is back at the helm of the Capitol Hill gossip column HOH for the time being with a variety of Roll Call staff writers contributing to the column since Ali McSherry‘s recent departure. Today’s column has a triple byline that includes Heil, Rachael Bade and Melanie Zanona.

Bade wrote on how members sustained themselves during budget negotiations — many skipped meals.  Zanona, meanwhile, wrote on Rep. Kevin Brady‘s (R-Texas) staff phoning WCP to check in about a satire story of revenue-seeking proposals that included a “snowball fee.” The Brady staffer was serious. WCP was not.
