Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

“But are you ready for this jelly?”-- CNN’s Jake Tapper, employing an unusual (for Washington) twist of phrase on his new show, “The Lead.” To which HuffPost Politics Editor Molly Reilly wrote simply, “Awful.” We disagree wholeheartedly. We’d like to hear Tapper employ the question daily, perhaps weekly so it doesn’t get stale.

Johnathan Krohn Under Fire!

“PSA: Just because you want to defend someone else’s view is no reason to attack my credibility or veracity as a journo. Calm the fuck down!” Salon‘s Jonathan Krohn, who was the recipient of verbal bullying at CPAC by two conservative females as reported (and recorded) by Yahoo! NewsChris Moody. One of the women, Townhall Editor Katie Pavlich, reacted to our writeup, saying, “Moral of this story? Jonathan Krohn got verbally beat up by two girls. Someone call the wammbulance.” (At right is Jonathan as a young sweater vested Republican. At left, a floppy-haired liberal.)

First World Problem

“So the puppy won’t stop jumping up on people. I know we need to ignore her, but it’s so hard because a) I love her, and…b) strangers love her too. Do I ask them to stop talking in high voices and greeting her when she jumps up?? Seems rude.” — Capitol Hill communicator, @therealmarta.

Uh oh. Is there a potential GIF for this?

“I’m home incredibly sick with a pounding head ache and the neighbors are blasting metal.” — BuzzFeed‘s Andrew Kaczynski.

Wemple is so sympathetic

“Tapper just pronounced ‘Reddit’ ‘Read-it’; corrected himself moments later. Lots of sympathy for that.” — WaPo‘s Erik Wemple. Oh, so he can see two sides to a story? Amazing how that works.

BuzzFeed seeks anti-hate employee (cat lover preferred)

“hahah Buzzfeed Job application says ‘No haters” should apply.’” — InTheseTimes Labor journo Mike Elk.

Um, who cares?

“Since its clear I’m not working at the moment a q: y do I like 90′s country music better than current stuff?#blameitallonmyroots.” — NBC “MTP” host David Gregory.

CNN’s Zucker to Meet With NABJ to Discuss Network’s State of Black Journalists

CNN President Jeff Zucker is scheduled to meet today in Atlanta with the leadership of the National Association of Black Journalists to discuss the state of black journalists at the network, FishbowlDC has learned.

Bob Butler, Vice President of Broadcast for NABJ, posted a note on the group’s Yahoo list serve last night saying that he, President Greg Lee and Executive Director Maurice Foster, will sit down with Zucker today.

The meeting comes on the heels of an announcement last week that morning show anchor and NABJ member Soledad O’Brien is transitioning to a new and less visible role at the network producing documentaries.

John Roberts Out as CNN ‘American Morning’ Host

Ken Jautz has announced that CNN John Roberts is out from American Morning. Discussions are allegedly happening for an Atlanta-based role for him so he can be closer to his fiance.

Though Jautz didn’t criticize Roberts, he said he’s looking for the show to be “more upbeat” and “faster-paced.” He’s adding T.J. Holmes to the program to be the first co-anchor with Kiran Chetry.

Good morning FishbowlDC!

Got a blind item, interesting link, funny note, comment, birthday, anniversary or anything of the sort for Morning Reading List? Drop us a line.

That’s ABC’s George Stephanopoulos with Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” last night.

It is day 108 covering the Obama administration and week 14 for us. Happy Birthday to NBC’s Mark Murray! What we know and what we’re reading this Thursday morning…



NYT: Amazon has introduced a larger version of the Kindle, pitching it as a new way for people to read textbooks, newspapers, and documents. It also offered limited information about new partnerships that are intended to put Kindles in the hands of more university students and newspaper readers.

More follow-up on The Boston Globe: The proposal that the Boston Globe‘s largest union will present to its members tomorrow calls for an 8.3 percent wage cut and an additional five-day unpaid furlough, according to a person briefed on the negotiations. Together, the two measures amount to a roughly 10-percent wage cut.

Reporters at The Baltimore Sun are withholding bylines to protest recent cuts.

Rupert Murdoch says News Corp. will start charging for newspaper websites.


TVNewser reports Dylan Ratigan is staying with NBC. Multiple sources say the former CNBC anchor, who disappeared from the air in March, is expected to turn up next on MSNBC. One insider says NBC “moved heaven and earth to keep him in the fold.”

HuffPost outlines “CNN’s Five Most Annonying ‘Personalities,’” which includes Lou Dobbs, Ali Velshi, Rick Sanchez, TJ Holmes and Soledad O’Brien.


The 50 most popular newspaper blogs- NYT has the most blogs to make the list with 22, LAT has 9.


AP: The government could provide tax breaks for newspapers or allow them to operate as nonprofits to help the industry survive, Sen. John Kerry said. Without newspapers, Kerry and other lawmakers said, there will be too few journalists investigating governments, companies, and individuals.

WaPo‘s Dana Milbank‘s take here. Opening line: “They came as if to their own funeral.”
