Press Club To Honor Amanpour

CNN chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour will receive the National Press Club’s Fourth Estate Award, its highest honor for excellence in journalism. The Fourth Estate Award is given annually to an individual who has achieved distinction for a lifetime of contributions to American journalism.

The award will be presented to Amanpour at a black-tie dinner at the National Press Club on November 21. Part of the tradition includes some friendly roasting of the award recipient. Doing the honors this year will be Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright and Richard Cohen.

Previous Fourth Estate winners include Walter Cronkite, Eric Sevareid, David Brinkley, Brian Lamb, Helen Thomas and most recently Paul Steiger of the Wall Street Journal.

  • It is close, but most of you think that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski do like each other off camera.

    REVOLVING DOOR

  • A tipster tells us that The Washington Times’ Greg Lopes has joined PhRMA’s press shop.

  • Ed Morrissey writes on Captain’s Quarters, “Today brings exciting news and an end to a time in my life that has proven far more successful than I ever dreamed. Beginning on March 1, I will begin working for Michelle Malkin, a friend, mentor, and writer I have long admired. She has offered me a position as writer at Hot Air, and my blogging will appear exclusively there.”

    NEWSPAPERS

  • Rachel Sklar looks into the media’s “Drumbeat For A Hillary Exit” (and fact checks Richard Cohen while she’s at it).

  • TheStreet.com reports, “The Ochs-Sulzberger family managed to cling to their control over the New York Times last year, but they may not be able to keep dissidents off the publisher’s board of directors this time around. Scott Galloway of investment firm Firebrand Partners, with financial backing from activist hedge fund Harbinger Capital Partners, has hired D.F. King, a proxy solicitation firm, to press its case with New York Times shareholders in the lead-up to the company’s annual meeting on April 22, according to a source familiar with the matter.”

  • E&P reports, “As Pulitzer Prize jurors prepare to gather next week in New York to sift through hundreds of submissions and find three finalists in each of the 14 journalism categories to nominate for the full board to consider in a month, speculation is mounting over which entries have the best chance. … Some news events, such as the Virginia Tech massacre and the Minnesota bridge collapse, give a clear breaking news advantage to papers near those stories. A handful of investigative and in-depth projects, including several China-related probes, are also top contenders, based on interviews with a few jurors and a look at the other major awards already announced.”

  • The Horses Mouth reports, John Solomon’s Washington Times Presents The Next Obama Smear: Military ‘Fears’ Him”

  • Slate’s Michael Kinsley writes about his “apparent concern about the appearance of the possibility of the appearance of a possible affair.”

  • Cox’s Ken Herman reports, “Today’s installment in one of Washington’s best long-running shows: Hearst Newspapers’ Helen Thomas vs. whoever happens to be in the White House. The topic was President Bush’s insistence on lawsuit immunity for telecommunications companies that cooperated in the federal government’s program to eavesdrop on suspected terrorists. Ms. Thomas, as she has for several weeks, wanted White House Press Secretary Dana Perino to explain why immunity is needed. If the companies did nothing wrong, Ms. Thomas argued, they have nothing to fear in a court of law.”

  • The Nation reports, “Evidently the editors of the New York Times have taken leave of their senses. There can be no other explanation for putting a story on the front page of their newspaper speculating about Barack Obama’s being assassinated. The Times is beginning to make it a practice of running news-free stories on its front page. Most of them are harmless, but this one is sickening.”

  • Huffington Post reports, “Clinton Campaign Response To New York Times Rejected”

  • Washington Post’s Deborah Howell writes, “A Veterans Charity Cries Foul”

  • U.S. News’ Paul Bedard shows us a little local activism goes a long way.

  • Politico reports, “Obama stiffs, stifles national press”

  • An ABC release announced, “‘World News with Charles Gibson’ averaged 9.21 million Total Viewers and a 2.4/8 among Adults 25-54 during the week of February 18-22. For the week, ‘World News’ placed first in the Adult 25-54 rating (2.4), tying NBC’s ‘Nightly News.’ For the seventh consecutive week, “World News” won among Women 25-54 (2.7/9).”

  • A NBC release announced, “According to Nielsen Media Research
    data, ‘NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams’ was the most-watched network evening newscast, winning the week of February 18, 2008. The Williams-led newscast averaged 9.627 million total viewers”

  • CJR reports, “Which of Tim Russert’s expert roundtablers did he turn to first on yesterday’s Meet the Press to discuss PlagiarismGate (the Clinton campaign’s making hay of Barack Obama borrowing phrases from Gov. Deval Patrick)? Russert turned first to Doris Kearns Goodwin, the presidential historian and Meet the Press regular. And it should have made for awkward television — asking someone with a plagiarism scandal in her past to weigh in on charges of plagiarism from the campaign trail. I mean, what does that disclosure look like — ‘You’re no stranger to charges of plagiarism, Doris, how does Obama battle this? Does this stick?’”

  • TVNewser reports, “Helped by strong ratings from three debates, CNN beat Fox News Channel for first place in prime time (8-11pmET) in the A25-54 demo.”

  • Slate looks at “The environmental pros and cons of reading online.”

  • “Due to an overwhelming amount of requests, the final EPpy Awards entry deadline has been extended to Friday, February 29th.” Enter here!

  • Reuters reports, “Newspaper and television company Media General Inc said it agreed to acquire DealTaker.com, a coupon and shopping Web site, from Plano, Texas-based NARAE Enterprises Inc, to expand its portfolio of interactive advertising and marketing solutions.”

  • The AP reports, “Online advertising revenues exceeded $21 billion for the first time in 2007, although preliminary data compiled by an industry trade group also suggest growth is slowing. The Interactive Advertising Bureau said its estimates show ad revenues grew 25 percent last year from nearly $17 billion in 2006. In dollar amounts, the estimated gain was $4.2 billion — less than the 35 percent and $4.3 billion growth seen in 2006 over 2005.”

  • Omnivoracious.com is “reviewing the reviewers”

  • washingtonpost.com’s Ben Pershing reports, “Amid the titanic fight last week over the expiration of the terrorist surveillance law, there was another, less intense debate brewing below the surface. This wasn’t your standard Republican vs. Democrat debate. It cut across all lines, pitting executive branch agencies against each other, prompting disagreements among lawmakers of the same party, even (gasp!) dividing reporters. This fight wasn’t over whether the expiration of the Protect America Act put the country in danger. It was over when the thing actually expired.”

  • The Boston Globe reports, “Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin warned yesterday that Internet service providers can’t block consumers from using lawful Internet activities in the name of providing better service.”

    NEWSPAPERS

  • The New York Observer reports, “On Jan. 9, Wall Street Journal bureau chiefs from around the world gathered for a night of cocktails and dinner at the Marriott Hotel on West Street in the Financial District. It was the annual bureau chiefs’ meeting, and it gave Rupert Murdoch his first chance to speak to bureau chiefs and senior editors at Dow Jones en masse, and to answer some questions. It didn’t take long for Mr. Murdoch to start some controversy. At the meeting, according to three people who attended, Mr. Murdoch spelled out a theme he’s been emphasizing since last year, but in renewed terms: that front-page feature stories are too long and might be better suited for a weekend reader who has more time to read them.”

  • Mixed Media reports,John Edwards wants you to ignore all that garbage coming out of Fox News — except when it makes him look good. Edwards was the first major Democrat to vow to sit out a debate originally scheduled to air on Fox News last August. ‘Fox News has already proven they have no intention of providing ‘fair and balanced’ coverage of any Democrat in this election,’ declared his campaign website. ‘Now it’s time for Democrats to stand together and send a clear message to Roger Ailes, Fox News and all the rest of them: bias isn’t balance, but turning tables is fair.’ Other Democrats also succumbed to pressure from MoveOn.org and other left-wing groups, and Fox ended up cancelling the debate.”

    ONLINE MEDIA

  • TVWeek reports, “A hungry online video audience offset the holiday traffic slowdown for video-sharing site YouTube, which grew its audience by nearly 9% in December. The site lured 68.6 million unique visitors last month, compared to 63.1 million in November, according to Nielsen Online. YouTube’s growth is particularly noteworthy given that Web traffic in general often slows in the last two weeks of the calendar year.”

  • Michael Chabon says that Richard Cohen of The Washington Post should be ashamed of himself for using smear and guilt-by-association to scare Jews about Obama.

    RADIO

  • Media Biz reports, “And back in late November, investors were led to believe, courtesy of a Bear Stearns analyst report, that Department of Justice approval of the merger between Sirius Satellite Radio (SIRI) and XM Satellite Radio (XMSR) was ‘imminent.’ But it’s now more than a month and a half later and there has been no ruling from either the DOJ or the Federal Communications Commission, which must also give the deal its blessing, about the merger. So much for ‘imminent.’ Investors are getting increasingly nervous. Shares of Sirius have plunged nearly 26 percent since November 30 while XM’s stock has plummeted 31 percent.”

    BOOKS

  • Inside Higher Ed’s Scott McLemee writes, “The people running Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign probably haven’t made time to leaf through the University of Illinois Press’s most recent catalog. Too bad for them. They could have placed an early bulk order for Erika Falk’s Women for President: Media Bias in Eight Campaigns. The official publication date is next week. It seems like a book that Clinton’s staff would find useful — and not just as a projectile to bounce off the heads of members of the press corps.”
