    More NPF Notes

    (Earlier: “Party Photos: National Press Foundation Dinner“)

    Some more notes from Thursday’s National Press Foundation Dinner (full list of winners and honorees here):

    -”Despite buyouts and layoffs, we need to keep doing our jobs, honestly and aggressively, now more than ever.” WSJ’s John Wilke (winner of one of the Everett McKinley Dirksen Awards for Distinguished Reporting of Congress)

    -1250 people in the audience (most ever)

    -They raised $800,000, $100,000 over last year.

    -WSJ’s Jerry Seib paid tribute to ABC’s John McWethy in his remarks.

    -In his remarks, the Houston Chronicle’s Jeff Cohen (recipient of The Benjamin C. Bradlee Editor of the Year Award) urged attendees to “keep fighting” for a federal shield law.

    -The Washington Post’s Dana Priest, who along with Anne Hull, won the Worth Bingham Prize for Investigative Journalism, said that “things have not been fixed as much as they should have” at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. “There’s so much work to be done.”

    -Mocking his age, the NYT’s Thomas Friedman (who took home the W. M. Kiplinger Distinguished Contributions to Journalism Award) quoted from Pete Seeger’s “My Get Up And Go Has Got Up And Went” during his remarks.

      I get up each morning and dust off my wits

      Open the paper and read the obits

      If I’m not there, I know I’m not dead

      So I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed

    Friedman assured the audience that he’s “only been on book leave for four months…I’ll be back….”

    He also put a positive spin on the doom-and-gloom scenarios being realized in newsrooms everywhere. “More people are engaged in journalism than ever before…I intend to stick around to see how this story ends.”

    Friedman thanked his wife, Ann, and his “other family, my New York Times family,” saying “without these two families I would have had a lifetime with a lot less achievement.”

  • For Time Warner, a time to break up?”

  • AOL takes on The Big Apple. CNet News.com reports, “770 Broadway is in a notably ambiguous location, to the point where AOL could really stake a claim to one of a handful of Manhattan locations depending on how it wants its new “advertising, not access” incarnation to be branded.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “The Emmy telecast on Fox attracted 13.1 million viewers, the fewest since 1990, as the television industry’s annual awards show faced competition from football, baseball and reality programs.”

  • Portfolio’s Mixed Media reports, “You heard it here first, folks: The New York Times is indeed putting paid to its paid-content program, TimesSelect.” Content Bridges reports, “So the New York Times’ decision to eliminate Times Select tonight at midnight leaves its emerging online business in a more precarious state — in that one-legged balancing position that any yoga newbie knows is a tough position to maintain.”

  • “CBS White House correspondent Jim Axelrod — you might remember him as the fellow labeled ‘defeatist’ by then-White House press secretary Tony Snow — was involved in another tense exchange last week, this time with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.” Public Eye has the details.

  • Indiana Daily Student reports, “When Bob Woodward uncovered the first details of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein in 1972, he worked against a government that clouded itself in secrecy and became infamous for hiding important information from the American people. Woodward believes the current administration is much the same.”

  • “Pictures of the Year International is beginning its 65th year as the world’s oldest and one of the most prestigious photojournalism competitions and collections. POYi has just scheduled dates for our 2007-08 program. An advance look at the categories and guidelines will be posted on this Web site at www.poyi.org in early December”

  • New York Business reports, “The New York Times Book Review said Monday that it will redefine and expand its best seller lists starting with the Sept. 23rd issue.”

  • Bill Steigerwald writes, “Is Morton Kondracke a conservative op-ed columnist? Are David Broder, Cokie Roberts and Thomas Friedman centrists? That’s what Media Matters for America, the left-wing media watchdog outfit in Washington, would have you believe.”

  • Business 2.0 reports, “Newspaper ad sales are expected to decline 5 percent in 2007, so it’s no surprise that print publications are eager to squeeze more cash out of their Web sites. One obvious source: local advertising, which accounts for more than 80 percent of ad spending but less than 20 percent of Internet ad sales.”

  • “News Corp. said its $5.2 billion acquisition of Dow Jones & Co., a deal that will give Rupert Murdoch control of the Wall Street Journal, probably will close in about two months,” Bloomberg reports.

  • “Nielsen’s Adweek Media is launching a business networking site, At the Roundtable, for professionals in advertising, marketing and media.” Check it out here.

  • Portfolio reports, “Once in a while, Maureen Dowd is terrific. More often, she’s lazy, smug and shallow, trafficking in little but caricature and innuendo. Her most recent column, on Hillary Clinton’s perceived weakness on military issues, contains a prime example of Dowd at her worst.”

  • Howard Kurtz writes, “O.J. was back. O.J. was proclaiming his innocence. O.J. was doing the perp walk. The Juice was under arrest, and television was magically transported back to the mid-1990s, when all of America argued about every facet of the double-murder case. … ‘It’s the story that just doesn’t go away,’Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, who has interviewed Simpson several times, said by phone from Las Vegas.”

  • Peter Barnes, Jenna Lee, Nicole Petallides and Cody Willard are joining the FBN anchor team.” TVNewser has the details.
