Separated at Birth: Weekly Standard’s Hayes

The Weekly Standard’s senior writer Stephen Hayes looks a hell of a lot like former Washington Redskins player Mark Schlereth. Oh what a difference five years and less facial hair make. In 2007, a reader thought he looked like then-WCP writer and now WaPo reporter Mike DeBonis.

Have a look.

Um, Are Journalists a ‘Constituency’?

The Weekly Standard‘s Senior Writer Stephen Hayes quotes NBC’s Lisa Myers in a shady turn of phrase.

Now 167 retweets later, clearly the comment struck a nerve. Politico White House Correspondent Glenn Thrush asks, “What does that even mean?” QGA Communications Exec. and columnist John Feehery replied, “You know what it mean, don’t play dumb with me.” IslandSnoopy also seemed to get the inherent problem here, writing, “Therein lies the problem. The Press should be objective. NOT ‘one of the president’s most important constituencies.’”

Righty Journos Chuckle at MSM’s Expense

The one jab that never fails to elicit laughs from conservatives is the one about MSNBC and how “nobody” watches it. There was a lot of that at last night’s Media Research Center gala.

MRC, a conservative media watchdog org, celebrated its 25th anniversary and presented its tongue-in-cheek Dishonors awards at the National Building Museum.

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham presented the first two awards, one of which was the “Obamagasm” award. The nominees were MSNBC’s Chris Matthews (“Isn’t it a surprise when you see him talking about Obama and he still has his clothes on?” Ingraham said.), ABC’s Diane Sawyer (“of the perpetually heavy breathing voice”) and CNN’s Piers Morgan (“Britain’s own alien life form”). Matthews won for declaring in July that President Obama is “the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American.”

The second award — the “Vast Right-Wing Knuckle-Draggers” award went to MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts, for saying in September 2011 that the GOP wants to build “a time machine, to go back in time…” Ingraham described Roberts as “Thomas no-one’s-ever-heard-of-me Roberts.”

Media bashing was given a rest for the William F. Buckley award for Media Excellence. It was presented by conservative columnist Cal Thomas as a tribute to Andrew Breitbart. The audience gave a standing ovation at the conclusion of Thomas’ remarks.

Two more anti-media awards were given out: The “Damn Those Conservatives to Hell” award (to NBC’s Ann Curry, for her interview with Republican V.P. candidate Paul Ryan in April) and the “Barbara Streisand Political I.Q. Award for Celebrity Vapidity” (to actor Sean Penn, for saying on CNN in October 2011 that the tea party wants to “lynch” Obama).

Finally, MRC President Brent Bozell handed out one last award: “The Worst Reporter in the History of Man” award. This one was chosen by cheers from the audience. It was initially a tie between former CBS anchorman Dan Rather and ABC’s Katie Couric. After a second round of cheers, Couric was named the “winner.” An embarrassing photo of Couric dancing at a private party in 2006 was projected on banners hanging from the ceiling.

The banners were a fixture for awkward photos throughout the evening. To the right was the spaced-out image of RNC Committee Chairman Reince Priebus that displayed when he spoke on stage.

Notables: The Daily Caller‘s Neil Munro, The Heritage Foundation’s Lachlan Markay, Fox News contributor Steven Crowder, The Washington Examiner‘s Philip Klein and Charlie Spiering, Slates David Weigel, The National Review‘s Jonah Goldberg, The Weekly Standard‘s Stephen Hayes, GOP mega donor Foster Friess, WMAL’s Chris Plante and CRC publicists Ashley Morris and Kelley Hudak.

DWS Will Apologize to Journo Over Her Dead Body

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz isn’t endearing herself to conservative journalists this week and this time it may be to her detriment. As of late, she has become a liberal punching bag for right-leaning journalists around the Beltway and beyond. This week she stirred up a hornet’s nest by accusing Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner of misquoting her.

Not only did the editorial page writer not misquote her, but he has the video to prove it. And last night things went from bad to worse as Wasserman Schultz told the conservative Free Beacon that no, she won’t apologize to Klein.

“Disgraceful,” wrote Stephen Hayes, senior political writer for The Weekly Standard, on Twitter last night.

The tension between Wasserman Schultz and conservative journos has been building. In his GOP Convention speech, FNC’s mild-mannered and God-fearing Mike Huckabee made fun of her voice, joking that he could hear her from the hotel next door. In response, she told The Daily Beast that Huckabee couldn’t handle strong women. And in response, Huckabee said you “can’t go getting your feelings hurt every time someone makes fun of you.”

DNC Chair Attempts to Discredit ‘Conservative’ DC Examiner

It’s unclear who’s punching up or down in this incident, but DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Washington Examiner are in a brawl.

Last night on FNC Wasserman Schultz accused the Examiner of misquoting her and slighted the newspaper as a “conservative” publication.

She was referencing a Tuesday story by Examiner Editorial Page writer Philip Klein. He reported that Wasserman Schultz said during a Jewish outreach session Monday in Charlotte that Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren believes Republican policies are “dangerous for Israel.”

“We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel,” Klein reported Wasserman Schultz as saying during the session. Oren released a statement after Klein’s report saying he never said that.

“I didn’t say [Oren] said that,” Wasserman Schultz told FNC. “Unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. Not surprising they would deliberately misquote me,” she said.

There’s no disputing that The Examiner‘s editorial page, for which Klein writes, is conservative. And despite its claims to the contrary, the paper leans right. But that isn’t the point now, is it? To DWS, the insinuation was that being conservative somehow makes a person untrustworthy.

We phoned Wasserman Schultz’s press office for comment.

Klein followed up on the Examiner‘s website last night…
