Joe Scarborough to Write Opinion Column for Politico.com

Scarborough_9.9.jpgStarting next month, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Michael Kinsley, the founding editor of Slate.com, will become the first opinion columnists for Politico.

The news was announced on “Morning Joe” by Politico‘s executive editor Jim VandeHei. Politico writers and editors are frequent guests on Scarborough’s MSNBC show. VandeHei joked that Scarborough, “has a tremendous amount of self confidence and is committed to writing about obesity two times a month.”

Scarborough said what his column won’t be:

“I told Jim, if they are expecting a ‘from the right column,’ they won’t get a ‘from the right column’ from me, just like they won’t get a ‘from the left’ column from Michael Kinsley.”

Bloomberg Broadcasts MSM Debate

Carrdebate11-2.jpgAs a part of the Intelligence Squared US debate series, BloombergTV will be broadcasting a special debate titled “Good Riddance to the Mainstream Media” this evening, tomorrow, and Wednesday at 9pmET.

The debate centered on “the viability of the mainstream media,” and the debaters included Vanity Fair/Newser.com’s Michael Wolff, Politico co-founder Jim Vandehei, and Phil Bronstein, editor-at-large of the San Francisco Chronicle.

NYTimes’ David Carr countered arguments that the major media organizations won’t survive and argued a point that some in the TV news biz have also argued: “…The New York Times has a news budget of two hundred and twenty million dollars, dozens of bureaus all over the world, many other news organizations have the same footprint. And we’re going to toss that out — which is the proposition — toss that out and kick back and see what Facebook turns up. I don’t think so.”
