Rachel Maddow Falls for Fake Story

Business Insider ‘s Glynnis MacNicol saw something odd on  “The Rachel Maddow Show” last night:  Maddow — citing satirical website ChristWire.org — said that Sarah Palin was calling for an “American led invasion” of Egypt to protect North America. Maddow said last night, “This is not Sarah Palin’s idea. This is what someone is suggesting for Sarah Palin.”

MSNBC’s fascination with Palin continues into 2011. MacNicol writes: “so much for Sarah Palin making it through the month without getting connected to Egypt.”

@MaddowBlog Tweeted yesterday:

The bad news about a free and open internet? Sometimes you get had by brilliant satirists. Christwire: 1 TRMS: 0

The story has been removed from MSNBC’s website, but the Atlantic Wire has the clip, which can be seen after the jump…

A Look at Newspapers: The Present and the Future

mmm_2-3.gifToday on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu we’re joined by Dave Levinthal, reporter for The Dallas Morning News.

Levinthal talk about the changing newspaper industry, and how it has impacted him and the mood of the newsroom. Also we talk about Levinthal’s City Hall blog at DallasNews.com. And from the newsfeed: we’ll talk about the Pulitzer Prize winners and the Senate newspaper hearing coming later this week.

“As soon as we had a presence on the Web, as soon as we found a home for all these news nuggets and a place for breaking news…people began to get really engaged with it,” says Levinthal of the one-year-old blog. “We knew there’s something to this here, this can work, and we just have to do the reporting.”

Also, sadly, this will be Glynnis MacNicol‘s final podcast, as she moves on to her new gig at Abrams Research.

You can listen to all the past podcasts at BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321. One note: we’re live all this week an hour later than usual, at 10amET.

Networks Cover DTV Transition Delay

Congress voted to delay the digital TV transition yesterday, from February 17 to June 12. “[President] Obama supports the delay, sharing concerns that 20 million mostly poor, elderly and rural households were not ready for the congressionally mandated switch,” said the Reuters story (also: FBNY’s Glynnis MacNicol). The broadcast morning shows touched on the decision today in brief news segments, and it was part of reports on ABC and NBC during the evening newscasts last night.nbc_2-5.jpg

Tucker Carlson on Pre-Inauguration “Menu”: “Let’s Not Pretend This is the Second Coming of Jesus”

tucker_1-19.jpgFormer MSNBC and CNN anchor Tucker Carlson, who is already “worn out” from the Inauguration festivities, joined us this morning on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu. Carlson and host Glynnis MacNicol are two of the millions in D.C. right now.

He had some strong thoughts about the media’s love affair with President-elect Barack Obama. “I’m excited about it, I live here, I want my kids to see it…On the other hand, in the end he’s a politician taking a political office, 52% of the public voted for him, 48% didn’t vote for him, so let’s not pretend this is the second coming of Jesus,” said Carlson.

And although he didn’t want to sound like “a libertarian wacko,” he had some problems with the D.C. security. “The security is really over the top, anti-American really…We are far too willing to accept security restrictions,” he said.

As for the “exclusive” deals being worked out between TV networks and the Presidential Inauguration Committee, Carlson said, “How you can decide you have exclusive right to something that takes place on the National Mall? I don’t know who came up with that? I should try it!”

He also had some other suggestions: “Why don’t we name the White House? We could call it the Staples House, you know what I mean. The Home Depot House.”

You can listen to today’s full podcast above, and listen live every morning at 9amET on BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321. Also, join us tomorrow as we’re joined by FishbowlDC’s Patrick Gavin on Inauguration Day.

Cablers Take HBO-Event Obama Speech Live

While HBO exclusively broadcast this afternoon’s concert outside the Lincoln Memorial featuring Bono, Usher, Bruce Springsteen and, well, just about every other musician/celebrity, the cablers went live to the event when President-elect Barack Obama took to the podium just after 4pmET. ABC News took it live as well with a special report. Throughout the afternoon, wide shots were employed by the cablers, but the speech was the only part taken live (will ABC follow suit when it comes to the first Inauguration ball?).

Also, FishbowlNY’s Glynnis MacNicol is posting pictures of some events in D.C., including from the “Morning Joe”/Daily Beast brunch. After the jump, check out Mika Brzezinski with some Obama champagne:
