Which DC Journos Did Forbes Overlook?

We don’t know if you’ve checked out the Forbes‘ 30 Under 30 list -but it seems to us that DC got the shaft. Indeed the whole thing was almost entirely New York and California-centric. But what do you expect when all three judges- Shane Smith, Ben Sherwood, and Arianna Huffington -are based in New York?

Ezra Klein was the only full-time DC media personality that made it. Ugh, how extremely unoriginal. Not saying that Ezra shouldn’t have made it, but come on, there are about one bazillion journalists under 30 in this town. Surely the judges could have found a few more picks amongst them.

Well, that’s why we’re going to pick up where Forbes left off. We here at FishbowlDC are putting together a list of our own highlighting five DC media types that should have been considered for the 30 Under 30 list. And we need your help to do it, dear readers. If you know of some young person who is transforming journalism or entertainment, or innovating the media biz, let us know. Send nominations to fishbowlpatrick@gmail.com, or to our anonymous tip-line, if you prefer. Make sure to include their name, age, affiliation, and any information about why they should be on Forbes‘ list. We’ll post in the coming days with our final selections.

Thanks in advance!
