Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast we were joined by FishbowlDC editor Matt Dornic.
Dornic gave us all the details about the weekend’s big festivities — the White House Correspondents Association Dinner Saturday night. We talk about the parties, the jokes and more. And what were the big stories D.C. will be talking about today?
One thing that wasn’t talked about — the recession. “It was just as glamorous and just as exciting as any other year,” said Dornic.
He also described his encounter with FNC’s Greta Van Susteren and Todd Palin. “Greta’s charming and incredibly intelligent and she was a blast to be around, and Todd Palin was wonderful as well,” he said. “I think it was a good move on the Palin’s part to have Todd join Fox News since Sarah was unable to attend.”
And Dornic revealed his “politi-crush”: Meghan McCain (“She was absolutely phenomenal”).
Also discussed from the newsfeed: WSJ’s micro-payments and Hulu’s success.
