Quote of the Day

Tina Brown on Bloomberg TV about Newsweek launching their new print edition today with a cover story on Bitcoin inventor (we think?) Satoshi Nakamoto:

I’m so glad I’m not the editor. But actually, I’m very supportive of their desire to get a print product out. I actually always thought there should have been a print component to the digital Newsweek. A small print component. But it is very hard. The ship has sailed. It really is a hard thing to bring it back. However, I do wish them well because I want every magazine that is out there to survive.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright joined Tina Brown‘s “Women in the World” series last night. This was the series’ first ever event in the District.

Asked how she would handle the situation in Ukraine if she were acting Secretary of State, Albright said, “Invading other countries illegally is not the way to try to be a part of the international system…I think what we don’t want to do is get in a zero sum game with them.”

In addition to a long history lesson on relations between the U.S., Russia, former Soviet Union, and Ukraine, Alyse Nelson, president and CEO of Vital Voices Global Partnership, moderated a conversation with Academy Award winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Pakistani activist Humaira Bachal.

Newsweek Back in Print

Newsweek will relaunch its print edition tomorrow with a cover story featuring a profile of the elusive man who invented the Bitcoin – Satoshi Nakamoto. The story is already up online here. Newsweek went to an all-digital format in January 2013, when then-Editor Tina Brown reinvented the brand as Newsweek Global. IBT Media subsequently bought the magazine in August of 2013 with plans to return it to a print format.

NPR’s Madhulika Sikka and Friends Celebrate Recently Published Book

photo-2Friends of NPR Executive Editor Madhulika Sikka hosted a very touching book party Wednesday night at Elizabeth’s on L to celebrate the release of Sikka’s first book, A Breast Cancer Alphabet.

In 2010, Sikka was diagnosed with breast cancer and soon faced “the unexpected and minute challenges that make navigating the world of breast cancer all the trickier.” A Breast Cancer Alphabet is Sikka’s reaction to her diagnosis, through her treatment, and beyond.

Accompanied by her husband and two daughters, Sikka thanked her “fantastic doctors,” supportive friends, the NPR science team, her publishers, and her “work husband,” Steve Inskeep, who was also in attendance.

The event was hosted by Sikka’s husband, Jim Millward; ABC News’ Sara Just; Kathryn Kross; Brunswick Group’s Su-Lin Cheng Nichols; NPR’s Michele Norris; and Jill Rosenbaum.

After the jump, see what Andrea Mitchell, Tina Brown, and Cokie Roberts had to say about the book… Read more

Daily Beast Loses Another One -Peter Beinart to Atlantic

sinking shipPeter Beinart is leaving The Daily Beast for Atlantic Media. The “liberal Jewish blogger” (a bit on the nose, don’t ya think, Byers?) will be contributing to both the National Journal‘s magazine and TheAtlantic.com, according to National Journal spokeswoman Emma Angerer.

This follows on the heels of the inimitable Tina Brown‘s exit from The Beast  in September, and the October massacre of more than two dozen writers and editors. Andrew Sullivan (who apparently is moving to DC -welcome back, old chap!) exited earlier this year.

Now taking bets on how long before Barry Diller is doing his own reporting and changing the light bulbs.

All in the Family: ‘A Politico CapitalNY Joint’

On Thursday afternoon Politico and CapitalNY, both Allbritton-owned publications, officially consummated their relationship by blending the reporting talents of Dylan Byers and Joe Pompeo to break the news that TIME‘s Managing Editor Rick Stengel was leaving the magazine to work for the State Department. They called it “A Politico-CapitalNY joint.” At least in Politico, anyway (as pictured at right). Technically the duo reports to different editors. But their big boss is one and the same: Jim VandeHei, who is both Executive Editor of Politico and President of CapitalNY.

“It was an expected bonus of the deal – Dylan and Joe were able to help each other nail down a tip and pop it at same time,” VandeHei told FishbowlDC. “We have no plans for this to be routine but neither organization would ever pass up the chance ‎to break news.”

The consummation had a bumpy start. Perhaps jitters. Wedding night and all.

For starters, the New York Times wrote the story without crediting Politico or CapitalNY. They may be the Goliath of newspapers, but they’re expected to be honest about story credit like the rest of the press corps and not swipe stories just because they may be able to get away with it. The lede on a story by Christine Haughney reads: “Richard Stengel, the managing editor of Time magazine, is leaving to become under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs at the State Department, according to people with knowledge of the appointment.”

Oh really, people with knowledge?

Then, there were byline issues. While CapitalNY immediately gave Byers and Pompeo a double byline at 4:12 p.m., even generously giving Byers a picture by the story, Pompeo was left off Politico‘s identical story published at 4:20 p.m., setting off a brief Twitter firestorm.

Did Pompeo get stiffed? Read more

Fox News’ Howard Kurtz: As Capable as a Head of Lettuce

Reuters media columnist Jack Shafer joins the bandwagon of writers kicking Fox News’ Howard Kurtz in the gut these days. Only he’s slightly more gentle about it, saying Kurtz’ capabilities are intact, now if only his new producers over at Fox News would get their shit together. Read more
