Terry Moran Wins White House Correspondents’ Association Award

ABC’s Terry Moran will be presented the Merriman Smith Award at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner later this month. Moran, who is not a White House correspondent, is being honored for his coverage of the Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act. According to Mike Allen‘s playbook, judges found that Moran “calmly guided viewers through the complexity, contradictions and nuance of the ruling while explaining what it means for the president and his political fortunes.”

Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker wins for journalistic excellence.  The awards will be presented at the annual dinner April 27. Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry is the current president of the WHCA. This is the fourth year in a row the WHCA has honored an ABC correspondent. Jake Tapper won it the last three years. Tapper is now with CNN.

And the First Obama Overseas Interview Goes To…

Logan_7.20.jpgCBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan, who just relocated to Washington DC, was the first correspondent to interview Barack Obama during his just-begun, but much talked-about overseas trip. The discussion happened today in Afghanistan and aired this morning on Face the Nation and on CBS Evening News.

Politico’s Mike Allen reports, of the three network anchors covering the overseas trip Katie Couric will go first, interviewing Obama on Tuesday “in a country that the campaign does not want named for security reasons.” Charles Gibson gets Obama on Wednesday, and Brian Williams will go Thursday. Allen writes, at least one publication is not represented on the Obama press plane:

Forty journalists, including such leading correspondents as Dan Balz of The Washington Post, will be aboard his plane for next week’s swing through Jordan, Israel, Germany, France and England.

The campaign received 200 requests for press seats on the plane.

Among those for whom there was no room was Ryan Lizza, Washington correspondent of The New Yorker. The campaign, which was furious about the magazine’s satirical cover this week, cited space constraints in turning him away.
