Hill-dawg miniseries scrapped by NBC: According to The Hill’s Rebecca Shabad, NBC’s plans to air a Hillary Clinton miniseries starring Diane Lane were tossed out due to Republican pressure to stay off the topic before the 2016 election time frame. Hillary’s camp also reportedly opposed the idea, as they’ve always been aggressively protective of her image.

Why you should read it: Whether you love or hate Hill-dawg, NBC went ahead and decided for you whether you will ever see this miniseries. Read more here. The NYT also tackled this story. No doubt Clinton Land is in a state of bliss.

Larry King is BACK!: Well sort of. According to Marc Tracy of TNR, Larry King will be covering for Keith Olbermann on ESPN this week from Wednesday to Friday. In an interview with Tracy, King reveals his favorite baseball teams, his dream world series, and his early days in radio.

Why you should read it: Even though the government has all but shut down, that doesn’t mean ESPN will have crummy coverage. Check out the entire interview to catch up on what King is up to. Read more here.

Morning Chatter

“At the pool for the 4th”CQ Roll Call’s Rebecca Shabad. That was at 1:39 p.m. Later that night at 9:48 she had moved on to other matters: “Guys setting off fireworks illegally on my street and I yelled: ‘Hey idiots! I’ll call the police if you keep setting those off!’ It worked!”

Journo captures dramatic scene on train

“Conductor to loud, obnoxious woman in the Quiet Car: ‘If you wanna talk, go to the next car.’ Woman: ‘No one orders me around!” #happyfourth …Loud obnoxious woman, now to her kids: ‘Remember how I told you never to take shit from anyone?’” — The Hill‘s White House Correspondent Aime Parnes.

Morning Oopsy

“Oy gevalt. I just said on the air that John Paul II has been cleared for statehood. #espressosubito abcrad.io/newscast” — Steven Portnoy, radio correspondent for ABC News.

Self-appointed media critics 

“Signs it is the day after a national holiday: an NPR story about how gamers watch YouTube videos of people playing games.” — Chris Chester, web producer for WAMU.

“I just heard the f word repeatedly on @FoxNews during a home video being played. Really? Is this how you ppl wake us up? Smh” — Javonni Brustow, editor of TheDCPundit and PopGlitz.

Leibo jokes about book

“Now aking kids to see Despicable Me 2…possible name for next book??” — NYT‘s Mark “Leibo” Leibovich, who came out with some new book in the last few days called This Town in case anyone around here has heard of it. We assume he meant “taking” not “aking.” He links to this. He previously provided this other promo, saying, “If this book is going to get me run out of #ThisTown, then you might as well read it (please)…”

Um, bullsh*t?

“I’ve lived in DC ten years, and I manage to never interact with the city @MarkLeibovich describes.” — Boybander and Slate‘s Matt Yglesias in a delusional moment over the weekend. He linked to this review of This Town by Carlos Lozada in WaPo.

Stephen Tschida Miami condo update

As some followers may know, Tschida, our dramatic traveler and train rider, has been trying to buy a condo in Miami for quite sometime. Each time the contract falls through, mostly on account of his dogs from what we can tell. In the last several days, another one bit the dust.

On 6/29: “From bad to worse. condo contract dies. Now seller refuses to refund cash! hhhhhmmmm… why? Is he thinking resume negotiations?” On 7/4: “Oh forgot, lawyer says I’m not supposed to tweet about my real estate deals. what’s one little tweet? Like the %#&#?& seller follows me.”

Fun Facts

“One of my writers is allegedly skilled at competitive hot dog eating … #TrueFacts” — CNN’s Jake Tapper with what would undoubtedly make for fantastic television (hint hint).

On second thought…“I can’t watch this Nathan’s hot dog eating contest footage all day — breakfast appetite has vanished (and that’s pretty rare)” — Politico‘s Jedd Rosche.

Important Q to Ponder: “Justice for Trayvon is definitely important, but is the wall to wall breathless coverage helping? #switchingtogolfchannel” — HuffPost-AOL‘s Arianna Huffington.

Press without alcohol: how will they survive?

NSA leaker Edward Snowden was supposedly on board until the press figured out he wasn’t and AP snapped a picture of an empty seat, 17a, his purported seat.

Important Q to Ponder: “Did NBC News tell its journalists to always include in their stories about George Zimmerman the fact that Zimmerman sued the network?” — CQ Roll Call‘s Rebecca Shabad.
