The Good Life is Going Well, Says Dr. Oz

“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.

Seth Meyers Roasts The Time 100

As you can see from the video, Seth Meyers was the perfect choice to host the Time 100 gala.

Meyers had jokes for everyone who made the list, including President Obama and Jeff Bezos “Two people who control an army of drones;” and Charlie Rose “Charlie plans to celebrate making the Time 100 by finally splurging for some electricity in his studio.” Sit back and enjoy.

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.

Record 41 Women Featured on Time 100 Most Influential List

The latest installment of Time’s annual 100 Most Influential list features more women than ever before. That’s… Something! Women still don’t make as much as men, but there’s more of them on a meaningless list now than there was in the past, so you know, baby steps. Very small, almost unnoticeable, baby steps.

Some of the women who made this year’s cut: Kerry Washington, Megyn Kelly, Amy AdamsAngela Merkel, Serena Williams, Robin Wright, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Jenji Kohan and Janet Yellen.

“The vast majority of this year’s roster reveals that while power is certain, influence is subtle,” said Time’s managing editor, Nancy Gibbs, of the list. “Power is a tool, influence is a skill. If there is a common theme in many of the tributes, it’s the eagerness to see what some engineer, actor, leader or athlete will do next. As much as this exercise chronicles the achievements of the past year, we also focus on figures whose influence is likely to grow, so we can look around the corner to see what is coming.”

Time Goes with Five Covers for Annual ‘Time 100′ Issue

If you ask us, Time only needed one cover for its annual Time 100 issue, which lists the 100 most influential people in the world. Instead, the glossy published five U.S. covers, along with two international ones. The one person we would’ve picked? Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani girl who stood up for women’s rights, despite being hunted by the Taliban. This is just a hunch, but we think she might be more influential than Jennifer Lawrence.

Some highlights from the Time 100:

(VIDEO) Rolling out the Red Carpet for TIME 100

Honorees Matt Lauer and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with Time managing editor Rick Stengel.

They come from all walks of life. They are actors, musicians, world leaders, and sports figures–and that just scratches the surface. Time Magazine held its annual 100 Most Influential People in the World gala last night at the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.

While more than half of the honorees were unable to attend, there was still no shortage of stars lighting the red carpet.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was on the guest list, and although she failed to take the stroll, a Homeland Security officer complete with a sniffing dog canvassed the confines.

Pres. Barack Obama was chosen in the magazine’s Leaders category, along with the presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Rommey. Both were, not surprisingly, no shows. Romney was winning primaries in the Northeast, while Obama was appearing on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” from North Carolina.

NBC’s Matt Lauer was listed among a group of Icons. Lauer recently signed a contract extension with the Today show at a reported $25 million per year.

FishbowlNY chatted with “Today” show third hour co-host Savannah Guthrie who praised her friend and colleague.

The 2012 Time 100

The annual Time 100 List, which seeks to gather the most influential people from around the world, has been announced. This year’s list features 38 women — the most ever — and as always, famous people showering other famous people with love. Below are a few highlights.

  • Tim Tebow not only uses the word “bling” when writing about Jeremy Lin, he tosses in “glam” as well. Jesus was not available for comment at press time.
  • Joan Rivers calls Louis CKSteven Spielberg without the beard and with humor.” So Spielberg is just a bearded, unfunny man. Got it.
  • Stella McCartney thinks that Rihanna’s best times are ahead of her, which probably isn’t that far off, because at some point you have to imagine that Rihanna will get her hair situation figured out. After that? Sky’s the limit.
  • Judd Apatow says that Kristen Wiig was “explosive and hilarious” in “Bridesmaids,” and we couldn’t agree more. We might have picked another adjective aside from “explosive,” considering that one scene in the movie, but hey, no big deal.

The 2011 Time 100

The annual Time 100 List is out today, once again hoping to gather the 100 most influential people over the past year. As always, it’s jam packed with celebrities and celebrities talking about celebrities (Michael Bloomberg thinks Joe Scarborough is “so important“).

However, this year it features some real influencers, like Wael Ghonim, one of the Egyptians who helped spark a revolution through his use of Facebook.

But celebrites – and people who are famous for being famous, like “Tiger Mom” Amy Chua (pictured) – are what everyone likes to talk about, and the list features quite a few. Here’s some other highlights from the list:

Time Announces Reader’s Choice Poll

Time magazine has just launched their annual Time 100 Reader’s Choice Poll, inviting the public to vote on one person (or group of people) to be included in its Time 100 issue.

From now until April 14th, you can vote on who you think was the most influential person from the past year. As of right now, the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant workers (heroes, more like it) are in the lead.

Other notables on the list include Nick Denton, Oprah, Roger Ailes, and Jay-Z.

Choosing who is “most influential” is obviously very subjective, but as long as Charlie Sheen doesn’t win, FishbowlNY is cool with whoever you pick.
