W is for Wow! What a Night…

The uber-fab fete for last night’s opening of the W Hotel ranks as one of the most exciting events this year. The old Hotel Washington wore subtle pinstripes and bold lace.

“Everyone thinks of Washington power as pinstripes, but the truth is — the real power is in a lacy negligee,” said Jayne Sandman while explaining the hotel’s decor to Joe Curl and Ed Henry.

Washington media stars were glammed out and grooving to a private concert by John Legend while toasting the super-chic digs with celebs like Emmy Rossum, Johnny Wright and Tatyana Ali.

Also spotted were Wash Life‘s Michael Clements, Politico‘s Kiki Ryan, Pamela Sorensen, Urban Daddy’s Jeff Dufour, Bloomberg’s Tim Burger, CNN’s Jessica Yellin, MTP’s Betsy Fischer, Jack Quinn, Susanna Quinn,Tammy Haddad, FNC’s Bret Baier, Amy Baier, WaPo Reliable Source’s Amy Argetsinger, Jessica Gibson, TWT‘s Joe Curl, CNN’s Ed Henry, Politics Daily’s Emily Miller, Cap File‘s Sarah Schaffer, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, CBS’ Scott McCrary, Fox 5′s Paul Raphel, Politico‘s Mike Allen, Fox 5′s Steve Chenevy and new “Yeas and Nays” columnist Tara Palmeri hanging with Mark Ein.

NEWSPAPERS

WaPo ombudsman Andrew Alexander explains the delay in removing insulting comments from the Post’s website.

TV

Slate’s Jack Shafer thinks Diane Sawyer should turn down the ABC “World News” anchor slot.

And speculation about Sawyer’s GMA replacement has already begun- NYT looks at some options.

ONLINE

The Huffington Post Investigative Fund has launched.

MAGAZINES

Mediate catches up with Elle magazine’s homeless intern, who says she doesn’t feel exploited by the $150-a-month stipend because most interns doesn’t get paid at all.

BOOKS

The courts agree- the “sequel” to “The Catcher in the Rye” is a “dismal” book.

NEWS NOTES

Gawker: On the morning he was arrested on corruption charges last December, Rod Blagojevich was the nation’s biggest greaseball. So obviously, the national press was willing to say anything to land an interview. And their emails prove it.

Did the media hype up the health care town hall meetings? WaPo‘s E.J. Dionne says media went out of their way to cover town-hall meeting noise and ignored the calmer — or “boring,” from TV’s point of view — encounters between elected representatives and their constituents. (h/t Romanesko)

WEST WING REPORTAGE

Is the media’s love affair with President Obama’s White House over? FamousDC points out these pieces: Ben Smith‘s “Blaming the media, again,” Greg Sargent‘s “Obama’s Political Operation Blasts Media For Distorting Story Of August.”

REVOLVING DOOR

Promotion: Felicia Sonmez has joined the ranks of Hotline’s writing team. After reporting on the ’08 White House race for the Japanese daily, Asahi Shimbun, Sonmez was hired as an Associate Writer for the Hotline in March. This week, Sonmez was promoted to Staff Writer for the political briefing, where she will be covering Senate races.

W Moves Back Into White House (Neighborhood)

Under the basking glow of moonlight – and careful watch of night vision goggles – Washington’s media star-studded cast assembled to christen a new “see and be seen” restaurant overlooking 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue last night.

Ashley Parker, Scott McCrary, Christy Findlay, Ana Marie Cox, Doug Heye, Missy Frederick, Ali McSherry, Anna Palmer, Christina Wilkie, Jane Black, Amanda McClements, Melissa McCart, Rachel Cothran, Michele Kayal, Barbara Delollis, Corinna Lothar, Kevin Chaffee, Amy Cavanaugh, Karen Sommer Shallett and many more came out to welcome Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and his new restaurant – J&G Steakhouse – at W Washington, DC. Barbara Martin and Carrie Foster of The Patton Group hosted the event.

After a fabulous spread and book-signing, the retinue gathered on the rooftop for desserts and to be watched from The White House “not through a set of binoculars.”

This was written by FBDC guest blogger Kenny Day.

Scott McCrary: The FishbowlDC Interview

mccrarymug.jpgSay hello to CBS’ Scott McCrary.

How many suits do you own? Four, plus a tuxedo.

What word do you routinely misspell? Ahmadinejad. I’m famous for writing “the Iranian president” in draft versions of scripts to get around it.

Did you see Brokeback Mountain? Yup, with three good friends. Was it weird that the only one crying was the straight girl?

Did you see The Da Vinci Code? Nope.

What’s the name of your cell phone ring? “Vibrate.”

What time did you get up this morning? 6. 6:15. 6:30. then 7:10.

When did you last cry and why? The person who was with me knows all about it… and that’s what matters.

Which of the seven deadly sins are you? Pride. (oh please, you saw that one coming.)

Beach, city or country? Beach. Specifically, the north end of the Outer Banks.

Would you say you’re cute? Pretty? Hot? Beautiful? What would YOU say, Patrick?

  • David Francis has moved to the top spot in our Rising Star competition. Vote here.

  • Matt Taibbi notes a change in Joe Klein’s columns. “I was initially confused because my original impression of Joe Klein, from afar, had been that of a gossipy, bourgeois suck-up to the Clinton administration. When I came home in 2002, however, the columns I saw under his name seemed to have been penned by a gossipy, bourgeois suck-up to the Bush administration.”

  • We have another campaigner! From a reader, “[redacted] is using myspace for her campaign!”

  • Washington Post’s Michael D. Shear chronicles why Sen. Jim Webb has become the latest media darling.

  • DCist critiques “the creepy name and the glowing spermatozoa” of the Washington Post’s onBeing logo. Oh, and it critiques the new site.

  • Regarding this, a reader writes, “Hey, if 34% of my blind dates resulted in a second date, that would be a huge improvement”

  • Another reader: “Could it be possible that the rising stars in the lead are because they’re in television and announced it on air??” Now that would be funny. All transcripts and clips welcome…

  • From DCRTV:

      New XM Deal For Bob Edwards – 2/8 – DC-based XM Satellite Radio re-signs public radio icon Bob Edwards (right) to a multi-year deal. Edwards will continue to host the XM Public Radio (XM-133) channel’s flagship program, “The Bob Edwards Show.” Terms were not disclosed. In 2004, Edwards jumped from DC-based National Public Radio to XM. Edwards says he appreciates the “creative freedom afforded me by XM to pursue stories that might never have been aired by traditional terrestrial broadcasters. The audience reaction has been outstanding and I look forward to continue bringing the unique stories of America to the XM audience in the years ahead.” Edwards hosted NPR’s “Morning Edition” for almost 25 years…..

  • One-time WJFK employer Peter Rosenberg now works at McDonalds? (Sort of)

  • Rising Star Finalists

    mblogo.jpgAfter the jump, you’ll find the finalists for FishbowlDC’s Rising Star competition. Congrats to everyone for being nominated and making it into the 2nd round in our first “Rising Star” competition. The winners will accompany mediabistro.com and FishbowlDC to the National Press Foundation Dinner, with a seat next to a high-profile guest (and if you’re a high profile guest who wants to go, let us know).

    Plus: We’ll be giving away seats to lucky winners we’ll pick at random. Click here to enter the raffle (send your name, affiliation and contact info).

    Now, before you write in to complain about so-and-so not getting included, etc., etc., let’s explain a few things.

    1.) If you didn’t get nominated, you didn’t get considered. The pool of contenders was chosen by you.
    2.) Some (actually, many) people were not included because, in our opinion, they were already “risen”, not “rising” (For instance: Ed Henry was nominated. Funnily enough, so was Helen Thomas). So, for some of you, it’s a compliment.
    3.) We did our best to limit the number of finalists from each publication, from certain beats, and from each medium (print, radio, broadcast, etc.).
    4.) Most importantly, we’re well aware that the list is imperfect. We did our best. Our apologies in advance if you felt snubbed. Dorian, Inky and Patrick discussed the finalists but the finalists were mostly determined by consulting with employees at various news organizations for their insight, thoughts and advice.

    Okay, so this is how it’s going work: After the jump is the list of finalists. If you’re already attending the National Press Foundation Annual Awards Dinner on February 22, let us know. Unfortunately, we’ll have to remove your name from consideration, since that means you won’t be able to sit with us (*tear*). Also, if you simply don’t want to be considered, please also let us know. Then, with the list tweaked as/if needed, we will open up voting Thursday morning and it will go through Monday.

    Click below for the finalists…
