We’ll update ‘em as we get ‘em (email fishbowlpatrick@gmail.com).

Morning Chatter

Uh oh.

“My laptop keeps setting itself back to Pacific time. I don’t think it likes DC.” — FNC and Daily Download‘s Howard Kurtz.

That thing when a journo gets trapped in an important discussion

“That thing when you’re trapped on a Twitter thread about whether it’s ‘website’ or ‘Web site’” — BuzzFeed‘s Rosie Gray.

High-wasted pants can work?

“I just saw a girl wearing high-waisted, cropped suiting pants and actually pulling it off, so I’ve found the one person who can.” — Katherine Miller, digital managing editor for the Free Beacon.

NSFW

“Note to self: Don’t pull up case study of company advertising on porn sites in crowded room full of journalists.” — Alex Wilhelm, writer at TechCrunch in San Francisco (a little out of our Fishbowl but still treading the same dangerous waters).

Plumber charges Ingraham nearly $400 for Sand Art debacle

“Now my son Niko found ‘Sand Art’ &poured it down a bathroom sink. Plumber came &tried to charge $399 flat fee. That incl. a remodel too?!” — conservative radio host Laura Ingraham.

CNN “Crossfire” Party Packs a Punch

“It was terr i fy ying,” said CNN “Crossfire” host Van Jones, careful to enunciate every syllable when asked about his first night on the job.

At least at the Crossfire launch party held last night at the Carnegie Library he could finally let his hair down (so to speak) and enjoy a night with friends, colleagues, booze and a band.

His co-hosts popped in the crowd — Newt Gingrich with his big, shiny helmet of white hair, S.E. Cupp in a purple leather sleeveless dress and Stephanie Cutter in power red.

Meanwhile, others mingled: Newt’s wife, Callista held her own with her perfect, shiny, white-blond bob,  former “Crossfire” host Paul Begala wished the new hosts well, as Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) and fiancé, Maria Belen Chapur, attracted flashbulbs on the red carpet while a very thin Caroline Kennedy, President Obama’s nominee for Amb. to Japan, drew stares. Others spotted around the room: WJLA’s Rebecca Cooper, conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, The Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol (who is far shorter in person than we imagined), FNC’s Greta Van Susteren and husband, John Coale, WaPo‘s Jackie Kucinich, ex-TWT Editor Sam Dealey, TWT‘s senior opinion writer Emily Miller, The Daily Caller‘s Alex Pappas, Politico‘s Dylan Byers, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, CQ Roll Call‘s Abby Livingston, Slate‘s Dave Weigel, TIME‘s Michael Crowley, MSNBC’s Karen Finney, lefty radio host Bill Press, Speaker John Boehner‘s spokesman Michael Steel and wife, Mary Kathryn Covert, lobbyist Jack Quinn and wife, Susanna, Americans for Tax Reform Prez Grover Norquist, NRSC’s fiery Brad Dayspring, and consultant Brian Walsh.

CNNer’s spotted in the crowd: CNN President Jeff Zucker, Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist, Jessica Yellin, Dana Bash, Brianna Keilar, Wolf Blitzer, Gloria Borger, Candy Crowley (without a shred of makeup), Wendell Goler, Matt Dornic, and Edie Emery.

Asked about Cupp, his conservative co-host, Jones said, “S.E. is the most likeable person ever born. I think they created her in a lab. She hypnotizes you and then she goes in for the kill.”

Cupp also had a thing or two to say about Jones. Read more

Politico’s Mike Allen Sees Dead People

Tuesday night’s big party celebrating the return of “Crossfire” was held at the Carnegie Library. As expected, it was QUITE the affair. Newt Gingrich, Stephanie Cutter, S.E. Cupp and Van Jones were all in attendance and mingled with all the V.I.P. guests.

Naturally, Politico’s Mike Allen ran through some of the faces spotted in the crowd. Bill Burton, Dylan Byers, Laura Ingraham, Rep. Mark Sanford and his fiancé were there, according to Allen. One name that stuck out in his Tuesday morning Playbook was former “Crossfire” host Tom Braden and four of his children.

The only problem is… Braden is dead. Read more

Morning Chatter

In other words: SHUT UP!

“My dad always said – among many other things – when you are talking you are not learning anything.” — Sen. John Cornyn (Twitter).

Arianna wants peace in her relationships

“I love the word ‘Hoʻoponopono’: an ancient Hawaiian practice of ‘making things right’ and working through differences in relationships.” — HuffPost-AOL Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington.

The Emotional Observer

“Oh God. So now Kerry is saying air strikes to degrade the capacity of a man gassing his people is not ‘an act of war.’ PLEASE” — Daily Beast Senior National Security Reporter Eli Lake.

Journo finds Netflix drama “idiotically unrealistic”

“OK, so I finished watching House of Cards this weekend. Most unrealistic of all the idiotically unrealistic things in it? The free-flowing traffic on North Capitol Street in the opening credits (BTW, I really hate my new commute)” — NPR Health Policy Correspondent Julie Rovner (Facebook).

Congrats!

“Moving on up…I am off to InTheCapital next week as a DC Lifestyle writer! So excited! This means a big torch passing. Meet Nicole Mills, Guest of a Guest DC’s new Managing Editor!” — Guest of a Guest D.C. Editor Sophie Pyle.

Oversharing Sherri wants Chicos to feature larger sizes

“Hey @Chicos …if you really have a line that makes you appear “slimmer” then don’t use a size 2 model…would love to see that line on a 16″ — ABC “The View’s” Sherri Shepherd.

Politico Playbook Publish Time: 9:15 a.m.

Convo Among Journos and Amtrak

“Sen McCain apologizes to Theresa Heinz Kerry “for what I’m about to do to John.” #Syria”” — The Weekly Standard‘s Stephen Hayes.

“For once, am glad I’m on Amtrak.” — conservative radio host Laura Ingraham.

“We’re glad to hear it :) We appreciate you traveling with us!” — Amtrak.

 

Where in the World is Laura Ingraham?

 

It’s August, a time when journalists in Washington take a breather. Where was conservative radio host Laura Ingraham last night? At a lake in Minnesota, of course, with dozens of her dearest friends.

 

The FishbowlDC Interview With Daily Mail’s David Martosko

Say hello to Daily Mail’s U.S. Editor David Martosko. He formerly was Executive Editor for The Daily Caller. Before that, he worked for Berman & Company, a PR shop that specializes in fighting progressive activists who target corporations. We must say, Martosko is one of the more colorful people in Washington media. For one thing, he’s kind of a panicky figure. He works at a frantic, relentless pace. He can sometimes be found in Sidecar, the dimly lit basement portion of the downtown restaurant P.J. Clarke’s, where he’s a member but where he won’t be found drinking. He’s also – weirdly – potentially deathly allergic to mushrooms. “The last time I ate a whole mushroom, I wound up with a swollen throat, red splotches in places where itching isn’t all that pleasant, and a very memorable two minutes when I couldn’t breathe,” he told me. “Eating them just isn’t worth the risk. Plus I’ll never have to explain to my wife how I wound up ‘accidentally’ hallucinating after dinner.”

Onto the interview.

If you were a carbonated beverage which would you be? Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi.

How often do you Google yourself? I haven’t in a long time. I’ll let the NSA do that.

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever said to an editor (or vice versa)? I can’t think of anything too bad. I’ve had the pleasure of working with the only nice people in the business. Tucker Carlson has unkind words for just about no one he works with. The Daily Mail people are class acts, and their accents make it impossible to be angry with them.

Who is your favorite working journalist and why? CBS’s Sharyl Attkisson. She’s a tough investigative reporter who breaks amazing stories and refuses to be anyone’s lap dog. It looks like her computer was hacked as a consequence, but I’m waiting for her to finger the schmucks who did it. She’ll probably figure it out.

Do you have a favorite word? It’s a tie between Wanderlust and Schadenfreude.

What word or phrase do you overuse? I’ve taken to saying “Cheers!” a lot (instead of “See ya later”) since I went to work for the Daily Mail. But I refuse to say “whilst.”

Who would you rather have dinner with – MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinksi, CNN’s Kate Bolduan or CBS’s Gayle King. Tell us why. Are you kidding? Kate by a mile. She has the whole package, and a voice that I can listen to for more than 5 minutes without drifting off to wonder if I’ve left the oven on.

What is the most interesting conversation you’ve had in the course of your journalism career? Last summer I sat in a hotel meeting room in Morocco, talking with an intelligence expert about the confluence of Islamist factions converging on Northern Africa. I left the conversation with a reality-check about just how out-of-control things are in the Islamic Maghreb – and about how countries we don’t think much about, like Algeria and Mali, are the next growth areas for al-Qaeda. Scary stuff, but so valuable to learn about it from people who live it every day, and who care enough about it to risk getting shot at now and again.

The Earth’s human population is dying out and you must save it. You will spend a romantic evening with either Jodi Arias or Monica Lewinksy? Who will it be? (Neither is not an option.) Monica. She’s more likely to get you on television, and less likely to kill you afterward.

Tell us a funny story from your time as a journalist. Can be long or short. One of my most enduring mental snapshots from The Daily Caller is seeing Jeff Winkler standing on Alex Pappas’ desk, dancing with his pants around his ankles, trying to be a distraction while Pappas interviewed some congressman. The photo wound up as a Funny or Die caption contest. Read more

Morning Chatter

Journo can’t resist Paula Deen interview

“Not that I’m watching this, but this Paula Deen interview is tough to watch.” — Roll Call‘s Shira Toeplitz, upon watching the chef on NBC’s “TODAY” Show this morning.

Awww…

“25 years ago this day, @DCrittenden1 & I were married. It feels still like it did then.” — The Daily Beast‘s David Frum.

Politico Playbook Publish Time: 9 a.m.

Journo Love (and Hate)

“Looking fwd to chatting today w/ show veteran @ByronYork — one of the few honest reporters re truth abt #amnesty Bill.” — Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham.

On being late…

“Next time I’m late for something I’m just gonna say that I actually showed up one minute early, which will maybe fly for 3 hours.” — HuffPost Social Media Editor Ethan Klapper.

Reporter to millenials: ‘I love your passion’

“Tweet 30k goes out to all you brave millenials who had to take jobs you weren’t thrilled to accept right after college. I love your passion.” — Washington Examiner‘s Justin Green.

And now, something awful…

“Basing your self-worth on RTs and favorites is probably a terrible idea, but some days it works out OK.” — Jesse Berney, a progressive speechwriter who has written for HuffPost, Salon and the revolting Wonkette. Figures. How pathetic.

Anonymous to FishbowlDC: “Who’s going to adopt the Twitter handle @BenWhite’sunsentemails? Here’s one: ‘Dear John and Jim: If you ask me to write another thumbsucker on Friday night that we all know no one will read, I will ride that fucking Amtrak down there and wipe the smug off your faces with a flamethrower.’ That kind of thing.” — In response to a quote we ran from Politico‘s Ben White Tuesday, who said that the best emails are the ones that are never sent.
