Hey, it Happens! TV Journo Confused by DM

It’s early morning. You haven’t imbibed enough caffeine. You get on your Smartphone and everything falls apart. Hey, it happens to the best of us! And this morning it happened to CNBC’s Eamon Javers. (Full disclosure since they’re so important in This Town: Many years ago, he was one of my editors. I don’t really remember him editing anything of mine though or getting into any fights with him.)

All things considered, it could have been a hell of a lot worse. Javers didn’t insult his boss, Paula Deen or even Politico‘s Mike Allen. Instead, he expressed his trepidation over being out of a pocket for over a HALF HOUR. Oh, the horrors!

At 5:48 a.m., his day seemed to be getting off on a good note.

About an hour later…

And then:

 

NBC Digital’s Lou Dubois seemed concerned. “You doing ok over there?” he asked. Javers confided, “Twitter is hard, especially before my second cup of coffee.” Dubois empathized, saying, “Coffee makes everything easier.” (WTF, indeed.)

Javers appears to have deleted one tweet directed to CNBC and some guy named “Ivan” that explains his angst about the whole thing.
