A FishbowlDC Salute to The Hill‘s Jared Allen

Riddle Me This? How did The Hill manage to get a story about The Hill wrong… er, incomplete?

The Hill receives nine journalism awards

Posted: 06/10/09

The Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) presented The Hill newspaper with nine journalism awards at the National Press Club on Tuesday night.

The Hill’s Roxana Tiron received first place in the weekly category of business/financial reporting with her article on how Boeing and its congressional supporters used a classified CIA briefing on questionable business practices to discredit a rival.

The Hill’s Kevin Bogardus, who received three awards, nabbed first place in the spot news category for his article on the indictment of former Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska). Bogardus and Business and Lobbying Editor Jim Snyder won first place in the general news category for their report titled, “Bailout Hurts Charities.”

Others at The Hill who were honored for their 2008 articles included Alexander Bolton, Bob Cusack, Jeffrey Young and Sam Youngman.

In 2008, The Hill also received nine SPJ awards.

Okay, let’s tally.

Tiron – 1 award
Bogardus – 2 awards
Bogardus/Snyder – 1 award
Cusack – 1 award
Bolton – 1 award
Young – 1 award
Youngman – 1 award
____________________
Total = 8

The headline claiming “nine awards” is accurate however, The Hill managed to overlook their own Jared Allen in the coverage.

That’s why today, FishbowlDC salutes Jared Allen! Jared, you may not be feelin’ the love at work but there’s always a place for you in the fishbowl. We suggest that Hugo and Bob begin planning a cupcake party in your honor.

Book Bash: “The Emperor’s New Clothes”

At Ellen and Gerry Sigal‘s book party for 9/11 Commissioner and Mayer Brown Partner Richard Ben-Veniste, talk veered from Obama’s mission to the Middle East to Watergate (Ben-Veniste was chief prosecutor). His new book, The Emperor’s New Clothes, covers five riveting cases with which Ben-Veniste was associated and the Sigals’ living room looked like Kennedy Center Honors. From Congress, former Senators Ted Stevens and Paul Sarbanes, Congresswoman Jane Harmon and Congressman John Dingell and lobbyist wife Debbie. Media wunderkinds included Newsweek’s Michael Isikoff and Howard Fineman, Sam Donaldson, Daniel Schorr, Nina Totentenberg, Elizabeth Drew, Kim Eisler (Washingtonian) and the New York Times Neil Lewis. Lewis found plenty of time to chat with Senator Stevens’ wife Catherine – perhaps about Senator Stevens’ trial which Lewis covered for the Gray Lady.

The Buzz at Smerconish Book Party

An iconic group from Capitol Hill, K Street, NIH and the media gathered at the home of Marina and Daniel Ein‘s home on Thursday to celebrate the publication of Michael Smerconish‘s new book, Morning Drive: Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started Talking.

Folks chattered about Pennsylvania politics (Senator Arlen Specter‘s chances for re-election post-party swap…deemed “excellent” by most) and swine flu. MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews extracted an “I’m not running for the Senate” from popular Democratic Pennsylvania Congressman Patrick Murphy while former Senator Ted Stevens talked up WaPo’s MaryAnn Akers.

Roll Call reporters Tory Newmyer, Emily Heil and long-time Chicago Sun Times bureau chief Lynn Sweet made the fete and celebrity biographer Kitty Kelley mixed it up with Politics Mag’s Boyce Upholt.
