Huffington Post: Days after New York Times reporter Peter Baker criticized the addition of reporters from The Huffington Post and Talking Points Memo to the White House pool, Arianna Huffington shot back at him, calling his recent coverage of President Barack Obama‘s decision on Afghanistan “stenography.” “Perhaps he should spend less time worrying about that and more time worrying that his own reportorial ‘scrupulous passivity’ so easily leads to the insertion of the administration’s desired spin into the reporting on momentous decisions of war and peace,” Huffington said in response to Baker’s criticism of the pool appointments.

On the menu at today’s lunch: a tasty stew of pop culture icons, publishing legends and power brokers — with a side of TV’s young-ish guns. There must have been big things afoot. Instead of the usual glad-handing and table-hopping, most diners were deep in conversation and slipped in and out without much fanfare. We barely recognized Dan Abrams, who had exchanged his clean cut pinstripes for a four o’clock shadow and a tieless khaki suit. We had to look twice when a downright subdued Tina Brown almost slipped past us. Then we settled in and watched the show:
Table 1. The top power spot was occupied by some interesting and intriguing folks today. The early show: Howard Rubenstein and guests. Now that we’ve been doing this for a while, we’ve noticed that the master of spin likes to dine, dish and be on his way before most of the other movers and shakers have had a chance to order their Fiji waters. Second shift: Judge Robert Keating presiding over a table full of jovial guests.

His forward-thinking move helped to all but eliminate the low level crime that was so rampant during the mid eighties and early nineties. Remember those dark days?
2. Peter Brown and Time‘s Michael Elliot. The jet-setting Mr. Elliot tells us he is currently based in New York but is splitting his time between Time‘s London office (where he edits the Europe, Middle East and Africa editions) and Hong Kong (for the Asia edition).
3. 60 Minutes‘ Steve Croft and MTV’s John Sykes.
4. Wayne Tabach.
5. Time Inc.’s John Huey with a cool, Grace Kelly-ish blonde we didn’t recognize.
6. MSNBC’s general manager and legal eagle Dan Abrams with Good Morning America‘s newish news anchor Chris Cuomo. Good to see you Chris, after your close call in Iraq …
