And Then There Were None: Betsy Woodruff Leaves National Review for Examiner

Earlier this month, Dylan Byers observed that the National Review Online newsroom was enduring a sudden exodus. Though their political reporting had been praised during the government shutdown in October of last year, by February of this year, many had left for better opportunities. Of the reporters who covered the shutdown, for example, the only one left was Betsy Woodruff.

Well now, even Betsy is saying farewell to the National Review. The Washington Examiner announced yesterday that Woodruff would be coming on board as a Political Writer, reporting on the Senate and House elections this fall. She will also help out on Capitol Hill, and write pieces on political and popular culture that will appear every week or so online and in the Examiner magazine.

National Review‘s Editor Rich Lowry told Byers that he would be hiring more staff soon. But we wonder if he’ll have any time for interviews. At this rate, before long he’ll be busy writing and editing every story on the website by himself.

Washington Journalism Suddenly Gets Sexy: Pubs Engage in a Threesome

They call it bipartisan “coupling” and a brand that will be as powerful as Carville-Matalin or Mitchell-Greenspan. We see a threesome.

The Purple Network, otherwise known as The Nation and National Review, is welcoming a third publication to their rendezvous: CQ Weekly.

The key graph in the statement claims that The Purple Network will be more powerful than Politico, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Yorker and even the NYT Sunday edition. Read more

Conservative editors team up against immigration bill — William Kristol and Rich Lowry have been at odds on immigration reform in the past. But today they’ve teamed up to write an opinion piece (click here to read it on Weekly Standard and here to read it on National Review) urging House Republicans to “kill the bill.” Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, has been in favor of reform while Lowry, editor of National Review, has been opposed. Nonetheless, the Gang of Eight bill recently passed by the Senate, has brought them together in explaining how there should be no urgency in passing reform. They argue that the bill is complex and was hastily passed without real examination of the real-world effects it would have. “If you think Obamacare and Dodd-Frank are going swimmingly, you’ll love the Gang of Eight bill,” they write.

Why you should read it: The team of Kristol and Lowry present a well-researched and thorough argument against the Gang of Eight bill as well as a look at where the GOP’s focus should be. Whether you’re for or against the bill, this piece is worth reading.

Do sex scandals matter anymore? — Mark Sanford. Anthony Weiner. And now Eliot Spitzer. Kevin Mahnken of TNR examines this year’s crop of out-of-the-ashes politicians who returned to the campaign trail in 2013 after falling from office at the hands of sex scandals, and what it means for sex scandals in politics going forward. No more is turning “hiking the Appalachian Trail” into an innuendo a political career-killer. And Weiner’s campaign seems to be going better than anyone imagined it would. With Spitzer’s announcement Sunday that he is running for New York City comptroller, which Mahnken notes is a “rather humble municipal office,” makes NYC the city that will determine whether voters care about sex scandals, even if they involve “a taste for expensive call girls,” as in Spitzer’s case. Mahnken also tries to tie the fact that politicians’ marital skills aren’t as important in elections to “the historical move away from laws prohibiting adultery, miscegenation, sodomy, gay marriage, and (probably, let’s face it) polygamy.”

Why you should read it: Do the words “sex scandal” mean anything to you? Mahnken’s piece focuses on three. It also raises an interesting point about redemption and the notion that politicians’ marital mistakes, however heinous and sometimes illegal, may not be an ultimate career-killer.

Michael Hastings’ wife confronts NY Times — Since Michael Hasting’s tragic death was reported Tuesday, numerous friends, coworkers and journalists have published remembrances and obituaries, most sticking to a pretty obvious guideline of, say, not questioning Hastings’ most well-known and praised piece of journalism, “The Runaway General,” which was featured in Rolling Stone. HuffPost‘s Ryan Grim and Jason Linkins reported that the NY Times, however, did just that, and Hastings’ wife, Elise Jordan, wasn’t happy about it. So Jordan emailed Times editor Jill Abramson after she read Margalit Fox’s obit that was published on the Times’ website Wednesday evening to ask Abramson to correct it before printing it the following day. Jordan quoted parts of the Defense Department Inspector General’s report in a response to the obit suggesting that Hastings’ reporting had been disproven. Abramson sent the email to Bill McDonald, obituaries editor, who wrote back to Jordan to say, basically, that she was wrong and that the obituary was correct, making it clear that he wasn’t going to change it before it printed.

Rich Lowry on Rand PaulPolitico published a column by National Review editor Rich Lowry in which he examined Rand Paul’s chance of a 2016 presidential bid. So far, Lowry said, his chances look good, thanks in large part to recent headlines, the NSA surveillance leak being the most recent and helpful to Paul’s case. Lowry runs through a checklist of Paul’s ideals touched on by the secret surveillance program: “ [The NSA] meta-data program couldn’t be better fashioned to play into fears of the government. Is it vast? Yes. Was it secret? Check. Does it arguably run outside the normal checks and balances of government? Uh-huh. Does it raise profound questions about privacy? Roger.” And this leak comes just after the disclosure of the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups and the seizure of the AP’s phone records by the Justice Department. Lowry points out that pretty much all of the headlines are catering to Paul and giving him ammo as he vies to be the Republican front-runner in a crowded field of candidates. It also helps, Lowry explains, that Paul is somewhat of an anomaly in the GOP: he’s interesting. Lowry also makes sure to point out that he’s no “Rand Paul-tie,” but he sees the establishment’s ideals aligning more and more with the unique libertarian conservative from Kentucky.

National Review Editor No Longer Dizzy

National Review Editor Rich Lowry really opens up in a recent interview with Politico‘s Patrick Gavin for his famous “Answer This” interview this week. No, not really. He forgets to tell a joke and reveals that his wife shops at Saks. Still, when asked to name his favorite body part, Lowry says it’s his sexy inner ear. He explains, “I took a spill during a misbegotten attempt to learn how to play hockey a few years ago. You don’t know what a wonderful thing it is not to feel dizzy unless you have spent some time walking around feeling dizzy.”

Rich Lowry Confident in National Review Defense Against Defamation Suit

“We will sweep to victory,” National Review Editor Rich Lowry said with a laugh Friday night when asked about the impending defamation lawsuit against his magazine.

FishbowlDC caught up with Lowry  on the suit at the Omni Shoreham hotel, where National Review‘s annual “Institute” summit took place this weekend. The event hosts conservatives in media and politics to discuss the status and future of the Republican Party.

The suit was filed by Dr. Michael Mann, a professor at Penn State, against National Review and one of its writers, Mark Steyn, last July for a column Steyn wrote which was critical of Mann. In the column, Steyn alleges Mann attempted to cover up data damaging to the science behind global warming. Steyn also compared Mann to Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach convicted of child molestation.

Late last year, the conservative magazine’s publisher Jack Fowler began soliciting donations to battle the suit via NR‘s website. “As many of you know, National Review is not a non-profit — we are just not profitable,” he wrote. “A lawsuit is not something we can fund with money we don’t have.” The goal was to raise $150,000. By the end of December, the site reported that it raised $129,000.

“I think it’s a completely bogus lawsuit,” Lowry told FBDC… Read more
