“I still can’t sleep. Ask me anything and I’ll answer. #ASKarl” — Syndicated Columnist Karl Frisch, also a partner at Bullfight Strategies, at around 3 a.m. At 4 a.m. he wrote, “Why can’t I sleep?!?!

C-SPAN: Priceless

“Ha, C-SPAN just cut off a caller who said Obama supported universal health care ‘because he is an alien.’” – Yahoo! News’ Chris Moody.

Correction: We were mistaken in yesterday’s Morning Chatter. NYT Jim Roberts actually did respond to HuffPost‘s Jon Ward‘s early morning ranting on the NYT homepage not having Supreme Court coverage Thursday. They had a blurb, but nothing significant. Roberts replied to the very important Ward, saying, “@jonward11 Seriously, what more is there to say at this point. We wait for a ruling.” And this: “Don’t do rehash.”

NPR: One to Boston; Another to Nairobi

An internal NPR memo announces that while one reporter heads to Detroit to cover the auto industry, another relocates to Nairobi. The memo explains why the Detroit reporter’s upbringing makes him particularly suited for the assignment.

From Uri Berliner, deputy supervising senior editor of NPR’s national desk:

The National Desk is happy to announce that Sonari Glinton is joining the business reporting staff during Frank Langfitt’s Foreign Desk posting in Nairobi, Kenya. Sonari will report on the auto industry and transportation from Detroit. He’ll be covering an important beat from a city and region where we will benefit from his knowledge and talents.

Sonari recently completed a very successful reporting stint at WBUR in Boston where he turned out a strong range of work – breaking news, enterprise, features and Web-only essays. He examined the financial overhaul bill, investigated a spike in suicides among Massachusetts inmates and profiled the state’s independent candidate for governor. He has proven his creativity and ability to manage tight deadlines during three years of production work at “All Things Considered.” He is also an alumnus of Chicago Public Radio, where he worked as a producer and general assignment reporter.
