Washington Wonks Get Wet

Have you heard about this? People pouring icy water over their heads to raise awareness and money for ALS? Well, several Washington wonks got in on the action over the last couple of days. CBS’s Bob Schieffer, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell and FNC’s Bret Baier all took the ice bucket challenge this week. Schieffer got doused by his colleagues at WUSA. He challenged Scott Pelley and CBS News president David Rhodes. Alan Greenspan did the honors, dousing his wife Mitchell, who challenged Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Chuck Todd. Todd was also nominated by FNC’s Bret Baier, who grabbed the tub himself. Baier also challenged his FNC colleagues James Rosen and Ed Henry. Meanwhile, a former Washington resident got iced this morning on the “Today” show.

Larry King Probably Won’t Be Moderating Any Presidential Debates in 2016

Larry King has interviewed several living and departed U.S. presidents, but it seems the former CNN host is having his doubts about today’s motivation for leadership.

Earlier this year, King predicted Hillary Clinton will be elected president in 2016 “barring the unforeseen.”

From the Rio Grande to the Canyon of Heroes

In the continuation of a series of interviews about her new memoir, Clinton and Ramos chose lower Manhattan for their interview, which will air Tuesday night on Fusion. The conversation touches on current global crises, the political climate leading up to the midterm and 2016 presidential elections, and immigration reform.

Hillary Clinton Acknowledges She’ll Have to ‘Work on’ Media Expectations

abc_hillary_clinton_nightline_interview_lpl_130129_mnShe’s already provided ample cable news fodder for months, and today, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton acknowledged she might need to reexamine her media outlook.

In an interview with NPR’s “On Point,” Clinton responded to former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson‘s criticism in a POLITICO interview. Abramson said Clinton is “incredibly unrealistic about journalists,” expecting too much loyalty.

“I think maybe one of the points Jill was making is that I do sometimes expect perhaps more than I should,” Clinton said about her relationship with the media. “And I’ll have to work on my expectations, but I had an excellent relationship with the State Department press that followed me for four years and enjoyed working with them, and whatever I do in the future, I look forward to having the same kind of opportunities.”

Clinton recently had ample opportunity to work on her interview skills ahead of a potential 2016 presidential run. Her “Hard Choices” book tour included interviews with ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, Fox News, CNN, and Comedy Central.

Jon Stewart Tries to Get Hillary Clinton to Declare Candidacy for President

Jon Stewart began his interview with Hillary Clinton last night asking a few questions around the edges, hoping to get her to announce she’s running for president:

“Do you like commuting to work or do you like a home office?… Do you have a shape for that office?… do you like corners?… Do you prefer to sit in traffic or cause it?”

Clinton says she’s gotten used to the constant criticism, having been in he public eye for nearly a quarter century.

To that, Stewart said, looking inward, “It’s just these talking heads, sitting around, picking out every little thing, making fun of it. It’s just not right.”

Hillary Clinton to Appear on ‘The Daily Show’

clintonThe cable news portion of Hillary Clinton‘s book tour ended a few weeks ago, but the former Secretary of State isn’t finished yet. She’ll appear on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” tomorrow.

A few weeks ago, Stewart poked fun at CNN and Fox News for dubbing their Clinton interviews as exclusives on the same day. In tomorrow’s interview, it’s likely Stewart will ask the presumptive presidential candidate for her thoughts on one of his favorite comedy targets—cable news.

Clinton has previously given her take on one of broadcast news’ big platforms. “Going on the Sunday shows is not my favorite thing to do,” she said while testifying on Capitol Hill last year. “There are other things I prefer to do on Sunday mornings.”

The Morning Ticker: 30 Rock Fire, Hillary Drops, Gasparino Booted

  • Camera equipment atop 30 Rock, which houses NBC, MSNBC among other networks, caught fire last night raining debris onto the Top of the Rock observation deck. Five adults and one child suffered minor burns.

  • In the latest New York Times Best-Sellers list, a provocative new book about Hillary Clinton has overtaken the new memoir by the presumptive presidential candidate. Edward Klein‘s Blood Feud is #1 for the week of July 20, while Clinton’s Hard Choices droppd to #2.

  • Charlie Gasparino‘s coverage from the annual Allen & Co. media summit was short-lived. The New York Post reports the hard-charging reporter was booted from what he calls the “insipid Sun Valley conference” after two run-ins with security. On Twitter, he vowed to return next year.

Jon Stewart Has Something to Say About the ‘Exclusive’ Hillary Clinton Interviews

After Hillary Clinton wrapped up the television interviews for her book tour this week, Jon Stewart poked fun at CNN and Fox News, both of which called their interviews “exclusive” — despite the fact that Clinton talked to the two networks back-to-back on the same day.

“Wow, imagine that! Two news networks expressly promoting exclusives with Hillary Clinton … on the same day! It’s like words have no meaning anymore,” Stewart quipped. “But good get! They should be proud of themselves to score an exclusive interview with the Salinger-like recluse Hillary Clinton, a woman who’s secretive nationwide book tour had restricted her access to NBC, CBS, ABC twice, and the Arltington, Virginia Costco.” Watch:
