“I think TIME 100 is an iconic event,” said Dr. Mehmet Oz at the TIME 100 Gala last night, where Seth Myers poked fun at everyone from President Obama to Charlie Rose.

We last spoke to Dr. Oz when our intrepid Lunch columnist Diane Clehane got the scoop on his new magazine. FishbowlNY wondered how the doctor was doing with the challenges of launching a print mag: “I’m [still] learning about the business,” he said. “The biggest challenge is being really concrete in the advice you give.”

Like everything he does, Dr. Oz seems to be handling all the challenges with aplomb. “[The magazine] is going well. We sold out the first issue, and we sold over 200,000 subscriptions, so I’m happy,” he said. The Good Life now has two issues under its belt.

Vetting the Enquirer’s ‘New Natalie Wood Death Theory’

On the bottom, right-hand corner of this week’s National Enquirer cover sits the teaser for an explosive two-page item by Barry Levine, Patricia Shipp and Steve Herz. Inside and crowned at one layout-end by the illustration below, an unnamed source tells the publication that the re-opened investigation into the 1981 death of Natalie Wood has taken a new turn, based on information in the autopsy about urine levels found in the actress’ body.

After reading the full, print version of this “Exclusive Special Report,” FishbowlNY decided to check in once again with Marti Rulli, co-author of the book that started it all (Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour). She told us that two elements of the Enquirer article merit elaboration.

1) Natalie Wood May Have Been Unconscious Before Being in the Water

“That was determined from the new autopsy review, based on the amount of urine in her bladder and slight amount of froth in her lungs. Those findings suggest she was either unconscious or dead before being in the ocean.”

“That, of course, leads to the question – ‘How does an unconscious or dead body get itself into the water?’ The autopsy was, earlier, changed from accidental to undetermined because another review of Natalie’s body strongly indicates she was assaulted. Her bruises are consistent with being battered, or a struggle having transpired. Those are the main reasons Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD) detectives will not close her case. They believe, with the witnesses who have come forward, and the scientific medical evidence now considered, that they have every reason to believe the case is solvable.”

Facebook Teams With Storyful to Launch FB Newswire for Journalists, Media Outlets (AllFacebook)
Facebook has become a virtual newsroom of sorts, with a recent study by the Pew Research Center’s Journalism Project finding that three out of 10 U.S. adults get at least some news while on Facebook and 78 percent of Facebook users see news while navigating the site. Now, the social network is aiming to become an invaluable resource for journalists and media organizations, announcing that it teamed up with social content discovery outfit Storyful to launch FB Newswire. TechCrunch FB Newswire promises to offer journalists a repository of verified, real-time content for use in covering breaking news stories. Storyful’s purpose was to verify news sources from social sites including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and the FB Newsroom version of its tech continues that mission, with the aim of making Facebook a more useful resource for journalists and news publications. GigaOM Storyful was acquired by News Corp. in December for $25 million. FB Newswire will highlight content that has been posted by users and media entities who are reporting on breaking news events around the world, and comes complete with an easy-to-use “embed” function. Mashable The agency will use an algorithm to find popular and breaking news stories on Facebook in categories like sports, entertainment, tech and politics. Facebook is also releasing a Twitter handle for the service, called @FBNewswire, along with the feed. Poynter / MediaWire The company recently hired Liz Heron from The Wall Street Journal to facilitate partnerships between Facebook and news organizations. The FB Newswire page will be publicly accessible but is “100 percent” aimed at journalists, Facebook director of news and global media partnerships Andy Mitchell said. “The format on the page will feel like a wire,” he said.

Bill Murray Tells Charlie Rose About the Oscar Speech He Would Have Given

BillMurrayCharlieRoseLast night’s full-hour conversation on Charlie Rose was as entertaining and memorable as we expected.

The first classic moment occurred about ten minutes in, when Rose observed that his guest’s trajectory seemed to have been “not a carefully thought out, well-planned life.” Murray was genuinely gassed by the observation, laughing heartily and deadpanning that no one has ever been quite this compassionate towards him.

A little later, the actor explained that because of his sons’ lives, he currently makes his home in South Carolina. Though he didn’t choose to relocate there, the actor explained, he now loves it. “The people are kind, the place is beautiful. It’s easier than being a parent in New York; being a parent there was quite a bit harder.”

Amazon Unveils Flying Delivery Drones on 60 Minutes (Mashable)
Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos is known for taking big bets in the world of innovation, and on Sunday night on 60 Minutes he revealed what might be one of his biggest: product delivery by flying robot drones. The service is called Amazon Prime Air and it’s slated for rollout sometime in 2015, depending on FAA approval. TVNewser Charlie Rose was as surprised as his viewers when Bezos showed him the drones. “I had no idea what his purpose was,” said Rose in a 60 Minutes Overtime video. CBS News / 60 Minutes Overtime When Rose walked in and saw the Prime Air drones sitting on a tabletop for the show-and-tell, he exclaimed “Oh, my God!” It was a genuine reaction — Rose and the 60 Minutes team weren’t in on the secret beforehand. Slate / MoneyBox America’s brick and mortar retailers are currently desperately scrambling to make something like this happen, but they’re hampered by their reliance on human delivery. The question is whether “good enough” drones will be available before Amazon manages to put all these companies out of business.

CBS This Morning Hangs with Robert Evans

Holy smokes. To spice up a report wrapped around a recent visit to the hallowed Beverly Hills home and Paramount Studios office of Robert Evans, Lee Cowan‘s producers dug up some old footage of Edward R. Murrow interviewing the young, dashing actor. That alone makes this morning’s report a must-watch for fans of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Happily, the actor who went on to become a studio mogul is still driving the Jag, making jokes and, most importantly, writing after a series of near-fatal strokes 15 years ago. We have not yet had the chance to read his new book The Fat Lady Sang, but judging by the sensational Frank Sinatra chapter excerpted in London’s Telegraph, it’s going to be as memorable as previous memoir The Kid Stays in the Picture.

Walter Isaacson, Barry Diller and Dylan Lauren Go Hollywood

LunchAtMichaelsIt was the usual head-spinning scene at Michael’s today as the decibel level rose to epic levels in every corner of the dining room throughout lunch. But all was tranquil (at least for the moment) when I arrived shortly before noon. There, I was greeted with the sight of two minions from Bonnie Fuller‘s office at Hollywoodlife.com who were arranging seating cards and ordering Pellegrino for Bonnie’s monthly schmoozefest. The power gals-in-training stayed just long enough to change into their high heels and shepherd the overflowing group of media mavens and social swans (and Dylan Lauren!) into the lounge for a round of air kissing before they finally settled into their perch in the bay window at Table One. Oh, to be young and ambitious.

I was joined today by two of my favorite Michael’s regulars who I met, of course, in the dining room many moons ago: producer and Democratic booster Joan Gelman and Robert Zimmerman, founder and partner of Zimmerman/Edelson Long Island’s leading public relations and marketing firm, who somehow also finds time to appear on CNN, Fox and MSNBC as a political commentator. On-air (and in conversation, of course) Robert offers well reasoned arguments against the extremists on both sides. “Too much attention focuses on being quotable, not credible. Too many commentators operate in a fact-free environment. Ann Coulter has become the Larry Flynt of political literature. Both live in a world of exploitation and filth,” said the Democratic National Committeeman (now in his 13th year in the position). Come on Robert, tell us how you really feel.

I always look forward to our bi-annual Michael’s lunches because besides being two of the nicest – and funniest people in the room — Joan and Robert can always be counted on for some tasty dish on what’s really going on in any number of social, business and political circles in New York.

While some of the juiciest dish is off the record, we did cover a lot of ground on the current political scene. I had to ask Robert what he thought of the two biggest headaches plaguing the Obama administration that are getting plenty of media coverage. On the Obamacare website woes, Robert offered this: “If it were up to my Republican friends, we would have given up on NASA, Social Security and Medicare because each of them had difficult launches. Medicare took six years to establish after President Roosevelt it signed into law. The website will be fixed. The bigger issue will be if people are getting a better deal in terms of cost and coverage. That will determine the future of Obamacare and, to a large extent, Obama’s legacy.” Read more

Univision, Al Jazeera Anchors Slam Obama After Being Left Out of Media Blitz (The Wrap)
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos and Al Jazeera English senior political analyst Marwan Bishara lashed out after their networks were left out of President Obama’s media blitz, writing that the president was leaving Hispanics and Arabs out of the Syria crisis debate. TVNewser “Pres. Obama gives 6 interviews [Monday]. None of those to Univision. Why? Hispanics also care about Syria. Same mistake as presidential debates” Ramos tweeted. “150,000+ Latinos are serving in the U.S. military. But none of the 6 interviews given [Monday] by Obama include Univision” Politico / Dylan Byers on Media Jose Zamora, a spokesperson for Univision, told us the network “did everything possible” to get an interview when the opportunity was announced, but was unsuccessful. “We think it’s a very important story for us and most importantly for our audience,” he said. Al Jazeera America Marwan Bishara: “Considering Washington’s decisions in the past decade have had an arguably deeper impact in Iraq and Afghanistan than in Iowa and Montana, President Obama must answer to Arabs as he does to the American people, regarding future wars in Syria or elsewhere in their region. And there’s only one major network that reaches the majority of Arabs and Muslims and others in the greater Middle East.”
