Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day


The Donald heaps praise on CBS’ Bob Schieffer

“Bob Schieffer of Face The Nation is doing well in the ratings— I like him because he treated me very fairly.” — Donald Trump.

Sandusky…Ohio?

“It’s sad, when I hear the President is heading to Sandusky, the first thing I think of is Jerry not Ohio.” — Mediaite‘s Dan Abrams.

Speaking of half-naked…

“Shirtless man standing on his porch with his hands at his hips staring at press bus as we pull into Sandusky.” — Buzzfeed‘s Zeke Miller.

Journo rattled by heat related odors

“I don’t mind my BO, it’s the blender on liquefy mixture of everyone else’s stench I could do without.” — Anonymous D.C. journalist.

Journo returns to civilization with amnesia

“After nine days overseas without news, I cannot remember who the GOP contender is. Newt Romney?” – Baron‘s James McTague.

On Writing…

“…And, as it is, the more I write, the less I want to talk. I now understand the love affair between writers and reclusiveness.” — NYT‘s Charles Blow.

Bullsh%t Journalism

“Joe Williams is coming on the show today to tell his side of the story” — Liz Wahl, an anchor at Russia TV. The network brought the ex-Politico White House Correspondent on their network at 5 p.m. Thursday to rehash his “inartful” (as he put it) comments on Mitt Romney not being at ease around white people. They asked him to address the “dick” remarks he made regarding Romney and his wife. The network, however, didn’t bother to ask for “his side of the story” as it never reported to viewers that Williams pled guilty to assaulting his ex-wife in May and remains on probation until November.
