Morning Chatter

 

NO DIGGING FOR GOLD: “My friend Angela spotted me on the CNN feed in her newsroom in Rochester! Glad I wasn’t picking my nose! :-) — ABC12′s Ted Fioraliso.

This Town fallout?

“That hardhitting report based on my eavesdropping on a staff conversation. #partylikeajournalist” — Dylan Scott, staff writer for GOVERNING.

And our Anonymous Ranter has more to say: “This Town”: Unlike most Wash gossip that aspires to wisdom and world-weariness, this one pulls it off with good writing. But I confirm my view that there is no news in the book, by which I mean something that constitutes scandalous behavior, which confirms the penumbra of suspicion of corruption that the book has cast. Andrea Mitchell went to parties but apparently never had a conflict of interest. People worship and fear the Clintons. Most public figures are egotistical. Some of the small details are nice and underplayed (e.g. Duberstein tried to run McCain’s transition planning then endorsed Obama) but nothing really newsy and Nothing but nothing that seems surprising.

Important Q to Ponder: “If a magazine can’t risk being irresponsible, what’s the point?” – Reuters‘ media writer Jack Shafer.

Morning Oopsy: ” One of Politico’s three “DC Hipsters,” Audrey Gelman, lives in New York.” — Washington Examiner‘s Rebecca Berg. See the list here.

Advice to Eliot Spitzer: Stay away from CNN’s “The Lead”

“Watched @jaketapper interview Spitzer. Ouch! Why Spitzer doing ntl tv, beats me. Advice: if caught screwing around, don’t do Jakes’s show.” — CNN Contributor Ana Navarro. Spitzer appeared on the show Thursday.

Email nightmares

“7 am when I haven’t had coffee yet wasn’t the time to be confronted by yet another gmail redesign” — Jessica Taylor, digital reporter for MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown” and NBC Politics.

Sometimes it pays to find out what your coworkers will wear to work

“Clash of the anchor patterns on #TODAY Stripes? Check. Checks? Check. Plaid? Check. More plaid. Check and check.” — NBC TODAY Show co-host Savannah Guthrie.

Convo Between Two Journos

This morning’s conversation is between NBC Politics’ Mike O’Brien and BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro.

O’BRIEN: You’re missing my point. I’m not talking about today’s filing, which is basically the last five notes of a 3-hour symphony.

MCMORRIS-SANTORO: I don’t think I’m missing your point. I think you’re missing my point, which is better than your point, haha.

The Fashion Hound

“No one on television has better ties than Brian Williams. (And that’s what really counts.)” — Politico‘s Roger Simon.

Sorry, Prince Harry, Savannah’s Off the Market

NBC “TODAY” Show host Savannah Guthrie was all smiles this morning as she revealed her engagement to political consultant Mike Feldman, setting off a flurry of reaction in Washington and beyond.

Guthrie flashed her diamond ring on air. Weatherman Al Roker tweeted that actor Bradley Cooper brought Savannah flowers for the occasion. NBC “MTP” Executive Producer Betsy Fischer remarked, “Two great people — Savannah and Mike — awesome news!” CNN’s Jessica Yellin added, “Wowza. Check out that pic! Congrats guys!” And Co-host Willie Geist assumes his invitation is in the mail: “Two of the greats. Spoiler alert guys: I already grabbed the shower caddy off your registry.” CNN’s Jake Tapper wrote, “Congrats to Savannah Guthrie and Mike Feldman!!!! Xoxo.” NBC Washington’s Angie Goff wrote, “Congrats Savannah! You’ll make a beautiful bride.” And Mediaite founder and ABC Legal Analyst Dan Abrams added his congratulatory note, saying, “Two people I’ve really liked and respected for a long time.”

Savannah had a pointed message for Prince Harry… “Tell him I’m no longer available.”

Even US Weekly splashed it up on their site this morning.

NBC TODAY’s Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie Offer Warm and Pointless Thanksgiving Thoughts

Sometimes hosts of the upcoming Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade shouldn’t be interviewed before, after or during the fact. What are NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker grateful for and what are their Thanksgiving traditions? Who cares? Even they don’t know or seem to care, but they manage to pull a variety of things out of their brains asses for the clip.

What we learned:

Savannah: She’s grateful for her new fam at NBC and for the fact that she won’t have to cook much at Thanksgiving. She’s good at cleaning up.

Al: He’s thankful that the Hurricane Sandy victims are getting help. His advice for Savannah is to appreciate the three-hour parade because it’ll be over in a flash.

The only entertaining portion of this video comes when Al discusses how he’ll be spending Thanksgiving with his wife’s family in Georgia.

Ahmadienjad quickly grows annoyed by the premise of the question.

Convo Between Two Media Types

E!’s Flamboyant Correspondent Interviews Savannah

This just in from Piranhamous in Charlotte…“The guy kid from the Tonight Show interviewing the chick from the Today Show. There was lots of fake laughing.”

Above is NBC’s TODAY Show co-host Savannah Guthrie and E!’s openly gay roving reporter Ross Matthews who is covering the conventions for the entertainment network.

Correction: Matthews previously worked The Tonight Show. We incorrectly stated that he was interviewing Savannah for NBC and have changed the above to correct the error. Piranhamous will be appropriately punished.

Savannah Guthrie Thwacks Starbucks

What is with journalists and their coffee? Last year in April Savannah Guthrie‘s former TV co-host Chuck Todd complained about poor service at an airport Starbucks. “Is it Starbucks company policy that their airport locations have to run inefficiently?” he seethed on Twitter. Now Savannah, who works for “The Today Show,” also takes a whack at Starbucks showing just how hard it is to get her morning coffee. What the hell, Starbucks? Don’t you know who she is? Don’t you know this doesn’t look good for you?

So much for MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” being “brewed by Starbucks.” Doesn’t mean all NBC employees are going to get their coffee in an expedient fashion.
