Journo gets shushed…“Weird. In Jack Rose bar in DC being told to ‘Shhh’ by everyone as they watch. #BreakingBad” — The Sunday Times‘ Washington Bureau Chief Toby Harnden.

orangefish

A compliment (sort of)

“This Sen. Cruz interview on Meet The Press is mindblowingly bad.” And then: “David Gregory might not be much of a journalist, but he did better than usual with Sen. Cruz.” — TechCrunch‘s Alex Wilhem.

Breaking Bad: the fallout

“The ONLY reason I wouldn’t want Walt to die a horrible death tonight is so Vince Gilligan could write some more episodes. #BreakingBad” — conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter.

“As someone who stopped watching Breaking Bad when Walt turned down a job with healthcare, Twitter is really boring me tonight.” — SNL Energy power and policy reporter  Corbin Hiar.

“Miss it already #GoodbyeBreakingBad” — NBC News Associate Producer Ali Weinberg.

“How many of these people gushing over #breakingbad have children, or lives?” — Daily Mail‘s David Martosko.

“I think Skinny Pete summed it up best: ‘I don’t know how to feel about this, morality wise.’” — Reason‘s Peter Suderman.

And the voice of reason? “Jesus, people. Let’s save some boners for HOMELAND.” — Atlantic Cities staff writer Mike Riggs.

imagesMajor Accomplishment

“When you finally kill that mosquito who has been feasting on you for the last three nights.” — The Atlantic Wire‘s Alex Abad-Santos.

Spotted: journos at Target

“Have seen three other former and current journos in the past 10 minutes. Target is the place to be.” — Greenwire“s Jessica Estepa.

What are the chances?

“Taylor Carney and I literally ran into each other on 17th Street while texting the other to try and find each other.” — Politico‘s Jedd Rosche. Carney is a staff officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency.

imagesUh oh, possible hair disaster

“Why do I keep having impulses to dye my hair comic villain red? Like poison ivy in the shitty bat man movie? #shouldidoit?” –Daily Beast columnist and senator’s daughter Meghan McCain.

Was this a trick question? “If I can’t finish the last season and a half of Breaking Bad by tonight, do I have to stop reading Twitter for awhile?” –former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau.

Playbook cuteness: Published at 7:34 a.m., Politico‘s must-read morning notebook addresses the shutdown by referring to a very high ranking government official, saying, “A tippy-top Democratic official tells us…”

And in case you have nothing better to do… “No matter what tweet about, use the hash-tag #EarlyStart….it’s important for ratings or something.” — CNN’s John Berman.

press hatThe uptight in D.C. award of the weekend…goes to Bill McQuillen, a former reporter for Bloomberg who declares that he is NOT a journalist. “CORRECTION: I am not a journalist,” he snapped on Twitter over the weekend. Although he was one for Bloomberg for 15 years and 5 months, he now works at JDA Frontline as VP of Public Affairs, which is apparently the gospel truth. However, he might want to have a quick look at his bio because in the second line (of the first graph) it says he’s “recognized as a top international economics, trade and labor JOURNALIST and an expert covering major aspects of politics, elections and government.” His LinkedIn profile, funny enough, lists him as a “Legal Affairs Reporer” [sic] for Bloomberg News from 2008-2010. He might want to fix that — or not. And if he really hates being referred to as a reporter he may want to look into having that reworked — or not. Whatever floats his boat. McQuillen is the newly eloped husband to WaPo‘s Amy Argetsinger who emoted on Twitter over the weekend. From the looks of it, he had no real problems with our Friday item, at least not that he could articulate.

Poor Lindsay Lohan: Sharp-tongued Journos Watch ‘Liz And Dick’ and Give it Sour Reviews

Lindsay Lohan‘s unanticipated return to acting, assuming the role of Elizabeth Taylor, played out on the small screen last night. It was Lifetime’s movie of the week: Liz and Dick. As the network chants, “Your life. You’re time.” The consensus among media types who took the time to watch was that the movie wasn’t just bad, but horrific, which came through in their biting critiques on Twitter.

“I’m not sure but I think Lindsay Lohan just trolled us all,” BuzzFeed editor Stacy Lambe wrote. And New York mag’s Dan Amira: “The hashtag #lizanddick may look a lot like #lizarddick, but don’t get your hopes up, it’s #lizanddick.”

Fox News and Commentary Radio Host Todd Starnes advised, “I think it helps if you’re drinking wine.”

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, Co-Host Mika Brzezinski said the movie was “the worst thing I’ve ever seen. … That was insanely terrible.”

“Even on Lifetime it’s the worst thing,” concurred Bloomberg NewsMargaret Carlson, a guest on “Morning Joe.” NBC’s White House Correspondent Chuck Todd echoed the sentiment, comparing it to a Saturday Night Live skit. “We’re going to find out that was all really comedy,” he said. “It’s a dark comedy. It’s hilarious if you look at it that way.”
