>UPDATE: DCRTV has a theory:
Perhaps it’s because the Politico’s owner, Allbritton, which also owns DC’s ABC affiliate WJLA, has moved ABC’s “This Week” from 9 AM to 10 AM, to directly compete with CBS’s rival “Face” on WUSA…..
>UPDATE: The relationship may not be as split as we thought: A reader writes in to point out that Josephine Hearn was on “Face” February 18.
Former Attorney General John Ashcroft, who sent a letter this week to his successor Alberto Gonzales blasting the proposed merger of Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. and XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc., approached XM in the days after the merger was announced offering the firm his consulting services, a spokesman for XM said Saturday.
Korny Does XM – 3/5 – Superstar Washington Post sports columnist and radio god Tony Kornheiser debuts on DC-based XM Satellite Radio today. His 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM Washington Post Radio show gets aired continent-wide with a half-hour delay from 9 AM to 11 AM on XM-144, Sports Nation…..
-About The Hill’s first Friday paper: “1) They have no ads. They were the only paper out today, they’ve been hyping this for weeks and yet they only had one full-page national ad (on the back page) and one retail ad (on page two). 2) The Hill’s stated reason for coming out Fridays is that Congress will be here Fridays. But neither the House nor the Senate was in today. 3) Their front-page note you copied earlier said the Hill was ‘a daily when Congress is in session.’ But that’s not true. They still don’t come out Mondays, even though both chambers have been working Mondays.”
-”STOP IT: Hill’s Friday paper has ONE ad. Merrill Lynch. And it’s part of what is literally referred to as the ‘Roll Call Campaign.’ You know, like Kleenex and Xerox: an ad campaign to reach Congress is a ‘Roll Call Campaign’. Yes, i used to work for Roll Call. But this is true and objective. Let’s see how long Hill prints Fridays with no revenue attached.”
-”Is it me, or does the Politico’s e-mail system not work–despite signing-up for all their e-mails on the launch date, I’ve never received any e-mails from them?”
-”Allbritton: ‘While other publications put out press releases about new plans to cover the complex world of lobbying only to hire young reporters with scant experience…’ What publications? What is he talking about?”
-The Aging of America Policy Briefing in Roll Call today…’Oh let me tear into to this first thing on a Monday morning!’ pause pause pause NOT! Didn’t The Hill cover this like two weeks ago?
-”Have you noticed all the (expensive) AP photos in the Politico? Didn’t they hire a photographer from The Hill? And why don’t they credit their pix online?”
-”Have you looked at the Politico’s photos. Check out today’s paper — a whole bunch of pricey AP pics, many uncredited photos, and only 1 picture by a member of their photo department. Until you get to the photo page, which just happens to be pictures from a Politico party (and features 4 Politico staffers). That’s how they use their photographers?”
