Pres. Obama’s Coffee with Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, Arianna Huffington and More

ABC’s Jake Tapper has an item about a meeting Pres. Obama had yesterday with “an all-star list of progressive and liberal media folks.”

Those there included the Washington Post‘s Ezra Klein and Greg Sargent, MSNBC anchors Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, and Chris Hayes, the Nation’s editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel, the New York Times‘ Frank Bruni, and stars of the interwebs Arianna Huffington, Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo, Faiz Shakir of ThinkProgress and Joy Reid of The Reid Report.

Tapper writes, “the group chatted with the president about economic messaging [and] his agenda for 2012″ among other things.

Well, Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren has a few things to say about this, calling some media outlets hypocritical for reporting a story a few weeks ago questioning whether Van Susteren should divulge her husband’s friendships with Washington political insiders.

Toyota & Healthcare on Reliable Sources

Tomorrow on Reliable Sources (11amET on CNN), Howard Kurtz talks with ABC News correspondent Brian Ross and his former NBC colleague Fred Francis about the media coverage of the Toyota recalls and congressional testimony.

Also, WaPo’s Dana Milbank, former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum and The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel talk about TV news coverage of Thursday’s healthcare forum.

“I Don’t Want to Come on Television and be Lectured by You About What I Should and Shouldn’t be Doing”

Abrams_7.29.jpgDan Abrams, who remains an MSNBC analyst, meaning he still gets a paycheck from the Peacock, has launched another new Web site. And he went on MSNBC to promote it. Nice.

“Gossipcop is the place to go when you want to correct the record and get the story right,” said Abrams.

But the former MSNBC host was thrown a curveball during the segment when Katrina vanden Heuvel, who was acting as a sort of co-host for the Carlos Watson hour, smacked down the whole concept.

“With all due respect to Dan and Mike, I think we need a lot more policing of things we have heard on the show just before this segment. We need policing of covert ops, policing of lobbyists –”

That’s when Abrams cut her off and explained how his other site, Mediaite, does just that by policing the media. Then Abrams huffed, “I don’t want to come on television and be lectured by you about what I should and shouldn’t be doing.”

Not sure if Mediaite has written about their bosses’ appearance today on MSNBC. But Gawker did…and they have video.
