New Uber SVP David Plouffe and Uber CEO Join Bloomberg TV’s ‘Street Smart’

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 18.31.15Shortly after today’s announcement that David Plouffe, the former campaign manager of President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential bid, would join Uber next month as SVP of policy and strategy, Plouffe and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick were guests on Bloomberg Television’s “Street Smart.”

Bloomberg’s Trish Regan opened by asking Kalanick about his hiring of Plouffe, a recent Bloomberg Television contributor, and what he’ll be doing in his role, and Plouffe, how he’ll leverage national campaign management experience on a global scale.

The anchor then transitioned the focus to accusations from competitor Lyft that Uber ordered and canceled nearly 5,000 rides and that drivers have been upset with ‘changing discount rates.’

NEWSPAPERS

Boston Globe: The Boston Globe‘s largest union, which represents nearly 700 editorial, advertising and business office workers, overwhelmingly approved a package of $10 million in wage and benefit cuts last night, ending more than three months of tense bargaining and brinksmanship.

From WaPo managing editors Liz Spayd and Raju Narisetti‘s online chat yesterday (h/t Poynter). “Paid wall for the Web site?: There’s a lot of chatter on the Web about moving newspaper’s Web content behind a paid wall. Any chance of that happening at WaPo? Spayd and Narisetti: Nothing imminent though we are constantly evaluating ways to get paid for our content.”

TV

Walter Cronkite‘s voice will stay as the intro to the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.

Because of Pres. Obama’s news conference Wednesday night, CNN is shifting the schedule for the first night of “Black in America 2.” On Wednesday, it will air at 9pmET, but will be back on at 8pmET on Thursday.

Black Retort critiques CNN’s “Black in America” here.

CNN’s Campbell Brown spoke about the state of journalism in a recent interview, saying her network is the only one on cable “doing journalism.” Check out the clip on HuffPost.

CNBC’s Trish Regan announced on the air yesterday that she is expecting twins.

MAGAZINES

Newsweek has yet to see a bump from the redesigned mag.

NEWS NOTES

The Examiner‘s JP Freire‘s take on NJ‘s newly launched 3121, an online networking tool designed exclusively for all congressional members and staff.

Politico on Mary Matalin‘s lesser known role in DC… editor-in-chief at Threshold Editions.

Eight questions from the Economist for Slate’s Jacob Weisberg, including: “In the great shake-up that is now occurring in the media do you think anything of value will be lost?” His answer: “There’s a great deal at risk. The financial basis of the leading organisations that perform large-scale systemic news reporting has collapsed, and it’s not clear what, if anything, will replace it. Certain categories of coverage—foreign, local, investigative—don’t look economically viable on a for-profit basis at the moment. This is a political and societal problem as well as a business one because of the vital role that the kind of journalism traditionally performed by newspapers plays in democracy. We need to find new hybrid models to support it.”

Schieffer and A-List Media Panel Grace Fort Worth, Texas

From a FBDC guest blogger (and proud mother of a certain DC journo) in Fort Worth, Texas:

Each year, Bob Scheiffer invites noted members of the media to his namesake journalism school at TCU. As always, Wednesday night’s event was entertaining, interesting and timely. This year’s panelists, David Brooks, Trish Regan, Gwen Ifill and Mark Sheilds, with Schieffer moderating, shared their perspective on President Obama, the stimulus package, Afghanistan, the recent firing of Rick Wagoner and the changes facing journalism.

As one might expect, they didn’t agree on all of the topics, but the consensus was that President Obama is a very calm, self confident decision maker and politician. They discussed whether or not Obama has “bitten off more than he can chew” in his policy initiatives.

Some of the more insightful moments were when Ifill noted that comedian Jon Stewart, not the mainstream media, took on CNBC’s Jim Cramer. Brooks discussed the constitutionality of the government taking over corporate duties and the intricacies of Afghanistan and the nature of the Taliban. Shields reflected on the great loss of investigative reporting if papers continue to fail, and cited Walter Reed Hospital in Washington as an example. Regan explained the nature of the banking and Wall Street environment to the Main Street of Fort Worth.

Questions from the audience ranged from the media’s treatment of Obama to the governments authority “to fire” corporate executives. The Schieffer Symposium brings the very best media analysts to Ft. Worth, and our community is very fortunate to have this event each year! At $15.00 per ticket, it’s a wonderful learning experience. Past guests have included: Tim Russert, Tom Brokow, Judy Woodruff and Bob Woodward.

Our guest blogger’s wish list for next year: Maureen Dowd, Charlie Gibson, Ted Koppel and Frank Rich.

Also check out the AP’s Schieffer Symposium coverage here and the Star Telegram’s here.
