Jimmy Kimmel on Working the White House Correspondents Room

Politico.com’s Patrick Gavin traveled to LA this week to talk to Jimmy Kimmel ahead of the talk show host’s weekend assignment as MC of the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

Kimmel says he checked in with several of the event’s previous hosts including Seth Myers and Stephen Colbert. Everyone has told him that the key to success is getting the President to laugh. As goes the POTUS, so goes the crowd.

TMZ Still Figuring Out 64-Mile Beltway Zone Plans

Patrick Gavin at Politico noticed that TMZ has recently been sprinkling its website celebrity scroll with a few more Beltway bits. So he decided to check in with site maestro Harvey Levin to find out whatever happened to those grandiose plans for TMZ DC, to go along with the other vertical that has launched, TMZ Sports.

Levin confirms that he is still interested in bringing the gotcha show to DC, but that he is a ways off from opening an actual Beltway office. He points to the site’s recent coverage of Republican Congressman Aaron Schock (pictured) as the way it needs to go:

“That’s a blueprint for what we can do. We took this guy that was a freshman Congressman and I think, if you talk to him, I think he’ll tell you that we did help launch him as something of a star… I think it shows that we have a place and we can do something. It’s not going to be a policy site, but we can do a personality site.”

Patrick Gavin Stalks Mickey Kaus in DC

MICKEY KAUS METRO SIGHTING.jpg
Can’t a dude just ride the Metro in the nation’s capital without someone tweeting about it?

Apparently not.

The moral of the story is: Don’t sit near former FishbowlDC blogger turned Politico reporter Patrick Gavin. Poor Mickey Kaus.

Politico Pillages Mediabistro For Staff

Media Matters on Meeting the Press

We found ourselves in a conversation at Netroots Nation with the press person at Media Matters.

FBLA: Does everyone in DC dress like they’re in the Junior League?

PP: No, we had someone from Politico come to our office in a t-shirt asking if David Brock wanted to be in a video singing Happy Birthday to Obama.

FBLA: Who was it?

PP: Patrick Gavin.

FBLA: Really?

PP: It was probably the strangest press request I’ve ever had.

Glad to see that you’re getting along so well without us, Patrick. Sniffle.

  • Morning Media Menu: February 24

    mornmm.gifToday on the Menu we welcome back Politico‘s Patrick Gavin to discuss the traits of a top ten DC Twitterer (you can follow Patrick here).

    “One of the reasons we included [Barack Obama] — he doesn’t do a lot of Twittering…but he is the most followed person on Twitter…he’s powerful perhaps just because of his potential.”

    Also up for discussion the phenomenon of Karl Rove in 140 character doses, will George W. follow, and what would a Bill Clinton Twitter feed look like. Plus! What does Rupe’s chimp apology say about the state of News Corp, and if more people are watching television than ever before how come the Oscar numbers were so low? You can listen to the podcast live every morning at 9amET on BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321.

    The Atlantic Celebrates Gwen Ifill’s The Breakthrough

    100_3615.JPGLast night at his home Atlantic publisher David Bradley hosted a well-attended party to celebrate the publication of Gwen Ifill‘s new book The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the age of Obama. Spotted among the D.C. heavy-hitters in attendence were David Brooks, Jim Lehrer, David Broder, Judy Woodruff, Tom Brokaw, and (time-less) Maureen Dowd.

    Ifill, whose brother, sister, and pastor were all in attendance, remarked that when it came to the book “timing was everything.” When she had first taken the idea to her publishers their first reaction was “‘A black president? Yeah, whatever…’” And with regards to the controversy that surrounded her book after it was announced she would moderate the Vice_Presidential debate: “Of course, there was the moment when everyone decided they knew what the book was about before I had even finished writing it. I thought, ‘Well that’s fine. Truth will out. I will just survive it.’ And I did.”

    Little bit of trivia: The Bradley’s home is located on Embassy Row and despite rumors floating around that it had once belonged to the Cuban Embassy, however host Katherine Bradley told us that its former occupant was in fact the last U.S. ambassador to Cuba. More pics after the jump.
