NPR: Bret Baier ‘The Next Generation’ of FNC Anchor

NPR’s David Folkenflik profiles Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier, who he calls “the next generation of Fox News anchor.”

Folkenfilk talks to FNC executive Michael Clemente, as well as former CNN Pentagon correspondent Jamie McIntyre:

“I remember thinking that if you took the average Bret Baier report at the end of the day and you took mine — and you stripped the names out so you didn’t know who was producing them — I’m not sure you could tell which report was generated by CNN and which was generated by the Fox News Channel,” McIntyre says.

CNNers Past and Present Celebrate Network’s 30th Anniversary

Sat Party 4.jpgA large crowd of former and current CNNers gathered at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Saturday night to celebrate the network’s thirtieth birthday.

The bash — an unofficial gathering organized by former CNN producer Elissa Free — drew over three hundred people and was emceed by former CNN anchor Bernard Shaw.

“It was a celebration of what we had built,” former CNN correspondent Kelli Arena tells TVNewser. Arena, who started her career at CNN in 1984, said that joining the then-four-year-old network “was a labor of love… There was an energy and an innocence about the place. We brought live to the air things that people had never seen live on the air before.”

CNN founder Ted Turner addressed the group, telling attendees he was proud of what staffers have accomplished. Former CNN president Tom Johnson also spoke.

Current CNNers in attendance included anchor Wolf Blitzer, News Standards and Practices EVP Rick Davis, Political Director Sam Feist, and correspondent Jeanne Meserve.

Former CNNers in the house included Cissy Baker, Ralph Begleiter, Charles Bierbauer, Mike Boettcher, Tony Collings, Roger Cossack, Patty Davis, Bill Dorman, Rusty Dornin, Bob Franken, David French, Frances Hardin, Leon Harris, Sandy Kenyon, Jamie McIntyre, Brooks Jackson, Kathleen Koch, Eileen O’Connor, Chris Plante, Frank Sesno, Mark Shields, Linda Taira, Mary Alice Williams, and Judy Woodruff.

“It was a lot of reminiscing about the little network that could,” Arena said. “There was no griping, no discussion about the current CNN — that’s not why people were there. People were there to celebrate what we had accomplished. It was like a family reunion.”

TV Journalists Funnier than Other Journalists

Call it the luck-o-the-tvnewser. At last night’s “DC’s Funniest Journalist” charity event in Washington, the two television newsers we featured, FBN’s Rich Edson and former CNNer Jamie McIntyre, walked home with a joint first place crown (literally). Take that, print. FishbowlDC has the full report on the evening’s throwdown.

Jamie McIntyre Is Not Actually Auditioning for MSNBC, But Rich Edson WILL Steal Your iPad

Apparently, the video we posted earlier this week of former CNNer Jamie McIntyre “auditioning” for David Shuster‘s anchor spot caused a bit of confusion among some who thought the video, which was a joke to promote a charity event, was not, in fact, a joke. From McIntyre’s blog:

I soon began getting worried messages from friends concerned that my “audition” tape had leaked, and that I was suffering the embarrassing consequences. I admit I am slightly embarrassed that some folks don’t realize it’s a JOKE. Which, by the way, illustrates another sad truism of today’s journalism environment, namely it’s impossible to do a parody of television news that can’t be mistaken for the real thing.

McIntyre clarifies that he is not actually unemployed, he is not actually interviewing for an MSNBC gig, and he does actually like his haircut. And that remark about CNN’s “quality reduction initiative?” Also a joke. “There was no such initiative, so far as I am aware. CNN was very good to me, including when I left, and I still have lots of friends there, I hope.”

Commedia Del Media’s “DC’s Funniest Journalist” event is tonight and we received this new video of Fox Business Network’s Rich Edson explaining how he plans to get a hold of an iPad:

NOTE: RICH EDSON IS NOT ACTUALLY PROWLING THE SUBWAY LOOKING TO STEAL YOUR IPAD. MORE INFORMATION HERE.

Jamie McIntyre ‘Auditions’ for David Shuster’s Anchor Spot

Former CNN Pentagon correspondent Jamie McIntyre submits this “audition video” for the MSNBC gig to fill-in for David Shuster, who’s on indefinite suspension with the network.

McIntyre shot it to promote the Commedia dell Media charity event, which is coming up in D.C at the National Press Club on Thursday. The event will name “D.C.’s Funniest Journalist” and raises money for three charities: The Committee to Protect Journalists/Journalist Assistance Fund, The Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library, and Reporters Without Borders. (More info here)

McIntyre worked for CNN for 16 years until, as his bio states, he was part of a “network-wide quality reduction initiative” in 2008.
