NYT Correspondent Injured in Iraq Helicopter Crash (TVNewser)
New York Times reporter Alissa Rubin was injured when the relief helicopter she was traveling in crashed Tuesday, killing the pilot. The helicopter was on a mission to aid Yazidi refugees in Iraq. FishbowlNY According to crash survivors, the helicopter went down shortly after takeoff. The cause of the incident has yet to be confirmed. NYT Rubin, 56, the Times’ Paris bureau chief and a longtime war correspondent, apparently suffered a concussion, at least one broken wrist and possibly some broken ribs but was conscious.

In addition to her work at Politico, Cummings has appeared multiple times as a panelist on shows such as PBS’s Washington Week with Gwen Ifill and MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews.

Cummings will direct a new, five-person team “dedicated to covering the lobbying industry and others paid to influence and shape politics and public policy.” Two things: 1. How much money is this Politico throwing around? 2. If you were a WSJ reporter in Washington, why wouldn’t you want to join what is quickly becoming the MTV of D.C.?
