Bill Maher Sees Dead Cable People

SteveDoocyPicPer a guest column in this week’s Hollywood Reporter, the host of Real Time has a bad, sick-sense feeling about the possible takeover of Time Warner by News Corp. What’s good for the Doocy, the acerbic TV host imagines, will not be good for the Maher:

There’s a terrible price to pay for this. (I mean besides the terrible price I personally will pay when Rupert takes over HBO and my show becomes Paste-Eating Time With Steve Doocy.)

Maher may have it wrong. It seems to FishbowlNY that the more likely Fox News morning show host to be gifted with some extra Friday Real Time would be Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

ABC News Asking Center for Public Integrity to Share Pulitzer Prize (TVNewser)
ABC News is calling on the Center for Public Integrity to share its Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism, awarded to CPI’s Chris Hamby, taking issue with CPI’s Pulitzer submission that depicts ABC News as a minor partner in a year-long coal-mining industry investigation instead of equal partners. HuffPost Network president Ben Sherwood sent a four-page letter to CPI’s executive director Bill Buzenberg affirming that ABC News was CPI’s partner in the investigation. He argued that reporters Brian Ross and Matthew Mosk made “significant contributions” without which CPI would not have won the Pulitzer. He added that while the prizes are only awarded to print organizations, he hoped the Pulitzer committee would recognize Ross and Mosk. Mediaite In the letter, Sherwood said Buzenberg “omitted the names of ABC News reporters and sought to parse and diminish their contributions, even though their bylines appropriately appear on four of the eight articles submitted by the Center to the committee.” Poynter In response, Buzenberg provided a point-by-point rebuttal saying CPI reporter Chris Hamby was the engine behind the story for months before ABC entered the investigation and in long stretches when ABC was working on other things. Politico / Dylan Byers on Media CPI and ABC News have shared recognition for the black lung benefits story in the past. In March, the Harvard Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting was awarded to Chris Hamby, Ronnie Greene, Jim Morris and Chris Zubak-Skees of CPI and Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross and Rhonda Schwartz of ABC News. Next month, the White House Correspondents’ Association will honor “The Center for Public Integrity, in partnership with ABC News.” On Wednesday, they received an award from the Society of Professional Journalists. Television news organizations are excluded from the Pulitzer Prizes, which honor newspaper and digital reporting.

Morning Media Newsfeed: Apple Found Guilty | Hasselbeck’s Farewell | Newsweek Nears Sale

Apple Colluded on eBook Prices, Judge Finds (Reuters)
In a sweeping rejection of Apple Inc’s strategy for selling electronic books on the Internet, a federal judge ruled that the company conspired with five major publishers to raise eBook prices. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in Manhattan found “compelling evidence” that Apple violated federal antitrust law by playing a “central role” in a conspiracy with the publishers to eliminate retail price competition and raise eBook prices. GalleyCat “After carefully weighing the evidence, the court agreed with the Justice Department and 33 state attorneys general that executives at the highest levels of Apple orchestrated a conspiracy with five major publishers — Hachette, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin and Simon & Schuster — to raise eBook prices,” the DOJ said in a statement. “Through [Wednesday's] court decision and previous settlements with five major publishers, consumers are again benefitting from retail price competition and paying less for their eBooks.” Fortune Apple has announced that it will appeal Cote’s decision. And if it’s to prevail in the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals or — if it comes to that — the Supreme Court, it will be on the strength or weakness of her responses to the six major arguments Apple raised in its defense. NYT The verdict in the Apple case might have been a foregone conclusion, telegraphed by the judge herself, but it emphatically underlined how the traditional players in the book business have been upended. Only Amazon, led by Jeff Bezos, seems to have a plan. He is executing it with a skill that infuriates his competitors and rewards his stockholders. paidContent Judge Cote plans to schedule a separate hearing to determine damages and other consequences for Apple. These could be stayed pending appeal. Because all of the publishers in the case have settled and have entered into new agreements with Apple, it is unclear what kinds of changes Apple could be forced to make. There are a few possible answers, however, in a government pre-trial brief.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Ditching The View for Fox & Friends (NY Post / Page Six)
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving The View and joining Fox News’ morning show Fox & Friends as a co-host, Page Six has exclusively confirmed. After much speculation, conservative co-host Hasselbeck is following Barbara Walters and Joy Behar out of the ABC daytime talk show. She will join Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on the Fox couch in mid-September. TVNewser Gretchen Carlson will move to a later, one-hour show, made possible by last week’s news that Megyn Kelly would be moving to primetime. “I have been a long-time fan of Fox & Friends and am excited to be joining their team as it is an honor to call the Fox News Channel my new television home,” Hasselbeck said in a statement. TheWrap Walters said that the soon-to-be-former coworkers of Hasselbeck — who first gained notoriety on the reality competition show Survivor — “wish her everything good.” HuffPost Hasselbeck, who has been the house conservative on The View for years, will move to a program whose political views coincide perfectly with her own — and whose less-than-highbrow approach to the news dovetails with her daytime experience. Moreover, she is a tested name and will bring her own version of star power to the show, and to the wider network. THR / The Live Feed Jenny McCarthy is in serious talks to join The View as a regular panelist when the show begins its 17th season this fall, sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter. McCarthy, who last May finished a run fronting her own talk show on VH1, does not have a deal yet, but talks are ongoing.

Babs Move | Video Launch | Less Vick

TVNewser: Barbara Walters refutes a rumor that Elisabeth Hasselbeck wants to leave The View by saying that she doesn’t want Hasselbeck to leave. Cunning move, Babs. Very cunning.

SocialTimes: The co-founder of YouTube is launching a rival to the video site. We’re hoping it will be called TubeYou and function exactly like YouTube, only more evil.

FishbowlLA: A book signing by Michael Vick‘s book prompted a Barnes & Noble boycott. A store manager commented that he was glad because less customers meant less people blowing up the bathrooms.

Kennedy Family Starts Twitter Feed|Tribune Lenders Seek Zell Investigation|Saturday Evening Post Editor Emerson Dies|New Yorker Hires 26-Year-Old Managing Editor|Kate Gosselin Takes On “The View”

Embedded video from CNN Video

FishbowlDC: The Kennedy family has turned to Twitter and the Web to get word out about plans for Sen. Edward Kennedy‘s memorial. Check it out at @KennedyNews and TedKennedy.org.

Wall Street Journal: Tribune‘s bondholders have called Sam Zell‘s $8.2 billion takeover of the company in 2007 a “fraudalent conveyance” that plunged Tribune into bankruptcy and have asked the bankruptcy court for permission to investigate.

New York Times: William A. Emerson Jr., an editor in chief of The Saturday Evening Post, died Tuesday at age 86.

The Observer: The New Yorker has appointed a new managing editor, 26-year-old Amelia Lester, a former fact-checker for the magazine. She is replacing Kate Julian, who is moving to Washington, D.C. where her husband just got a job.

E!: Kate Gosselin will be one of the subs filling in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck on “The View” while the conservative mommy is on maternity leave. “It appears Gosselin has taken the conservative host’s riled-up advice, dished out on the show in June, to ‘get a job,’” the E! article said. “Bet Hasselbeck wasn’t expecting it to be hers.”

Watch Out Elisabeth: Rosie’s Back

sirius.pngSirius XM Radio announced yesterday that former talk show host and explosive “View” co-host Rosie O’Donnell will be hosting her own daily morning show on satellite radio come this fall.

The show, called “Rosie Radio,” will be a two-hour weekday talk show featuring Rosie’s unique take on the world — “an eclectic mix of humor, pop culture and serious conversation,” the satellite radio network said.

“Rosie Radio” will also have “an ensemble feel” thanks to a variety of guests who will be sitting in to talk with Rosie, including celebrities and average Joes. We doubt that Rosie’s former “View” co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck or Barbara Walters will be among the guests who join in the fun, although that would make for great ratings.

Rosie Vlogs About View Exit

rosie_video_052907.jpg

Love her or loathe her, has there ever been a celebrity more new media savvy than Rosie O’Donnell? After an intellectual showdown with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on the View left Barbara Walters to calm the insatiable studio audience down (“There is peace in the kingdom“) Rosie put her beat poetry blog-leanings to video, Web-cam style, to explain why she won’t be coming back to the View:

“I was really just like the foster kid for a year. I came and we considered adoption, but I really didn’t fit into the family, and then it was time for the foster kid to go back home.”

The result: an intimate talk (and bandana and beer) implausibly hard to ignore.
