The Hill’s Bob Cusack Named Editor in Chief

The Hill today announced that Bob Cusack has been named editor in chief. He’s served as managing editor of the paper since 2004.

Cusack’s promotion came with several other announcements, including the departure of Hugo Gurdon who’s heading to The Examiner. Hill news editor Ian Swanson will replace Cusack as managing editor, and business and lobbying editor Dustin Weaver will fill Swanson’s role. POLITICO’s Scott Wong will now serve as a senior staff writer for The Hill. 

TheHillTweet

At 9:04 am, The Hill tweeted the announcement (to the right), and funny enough, misspelled his name (thank you Fishbowl reader for the screen grab!).

The tweet has since been deleted and a new tweet issued, spelling corrected (below).

How Journos Handle Delicate Underwear Verbiage

Today we take a penetrating look at how journalists (and comedian Jon Stewart) tackle the terrain of describing a photograph that may or may not be Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s (D-N.Y.) suspicious package. Cox Radio’s Jamie Dupree gets the creativity award for this one, and not only because of the name of his employer.

Cox Radio Capitol Hill Reporter Jamie Dupree: “their own family jewels (tucked safely in some gray underwear)”

Slate‘s Josh Voorhees: “a man’s underwear-clad crotch”

WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza: “At issue is an image posted to Weiner’s Twitter account that depicted a man’s underwear-clad groin.”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: “Underpants.”

The Hill‘s Bernie Becker: “a sexually suggestive picture”

NYP: “crotch shot”

TWT‘s Kerry Picket: “lewd photo”

NY Daily NewsCeleste Katz: “the bulging-briefs photo”

Politico’s Scott Wong and Ben Smith: “the close-up photo of a man’s crotch”

Roll Call‘s John Stanton: “a photograph of underwear-clad male genitalia”

NYT‘s Raymond Hernandez: “photo sent from his Twitter account that shows a man in his underpants from the waist down.”

TWT‘s David Etheridge: “the tightly cropped shot of a man’s crotch clad in gray underwear.”

FNC’s Bret Baier: “Is there a picture out there of you in your drawers that you are worried about?”

Comedy Central’s Stewart: “Junk shot.”

MSNBC’s Thomas Anderson: “Pixelated bulge.”
