Spotted: Maureen Orth in Nantucket

On Thursday afternoon Vanity Fair‘s Maureen Orth, mother of NBC’s Luke Russert, was spotted buying Sunflowers at Moors Farm in Nantucket. She was wearing bright red pants and a blue and white striped nautical shirt. She drove a green jeep with a Buffalo Bills bumper sticker on the back.

Our spy tells us she had a pretty adorable pug in tow: “Her dog jumped out of the jeep and was wandering around, with his leash on, and very cute.”

Nantucket is a huge NBC haven. Bob Wright, chairman of NBC Universal, has a place here, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough was on the cover of N Magazine last summer, Kathy Lee Gifford has a house here, as do a lot of NBC execs. FNC may be invading though. Greta Van Susteren now has a place and a boat in Nantucket. She was spotted at Osana’s auction last Saturday.
Correction: We previously reported that Van Susteren had sold her boat. Not true! Our sources were apparently hallucinating on that one. It’s alive and well and in Nantucket. Picture above.

  • We are seeing a surge in voting…an hour and a half left…

  • Instapundit reports that while many journos don’t like the recent subpoenas issues by the army, some “seem to confuse” their ethical issues with political ones.

  • Riehl World View claims that the “AP and E&P have teamed up to perpetuate a lie.” The lie being that “many U.S. troops in Iraq oppose escalation.” What do you think?

  • Nielsen BuzzMetrics press release revealed that 18 blogs are responsible for the 100 most popular blog posts of 2006. The most popular blog, based on inbound links, was mother.livejournal.com’s petition against changes in the livejournal interface. Crooks and Liars’ posts on Stephen Colbert’s monologue at the White House, and Keith Olbermann commentary on Rumsfeld, were the number 2 and 3 posts, respectively.

  • From Slate, video included: “Bob Wright engages a Buddha-like Andrew Sullivan in intense theological discussion. Then I try to give Bob grief for not taking the obvious shots at him. Bob takes this rather more seriously than I meant it –and that’s always must-see TV!”

  • Robert Scoble sat down with The Washington Post’s Dan Balz, to discuss how technology is quickly changing the face of journalism and politics.

  • Happy New Years!
