Morning Chatter

Morning Wondering: Something to watch over your breakfast of coffee and weed. Politico‘s Dylan Byers may want to look at this – or not.

WaPo sale fallout

“What’s most interesting about Don Graham is how personally interested he is in tech. Unusual both for a newspaperman and a 68-year-old” — Slate‘s Farhad Manjoo.

“Just had a weird experience being interviewed by a Post reporter about the sale; neither of us really seem to know What It All Means.” — WCP Editor Mike Madden waxing philosophical coupled with a little Marty Rudolph capitalizing technique.

“I know this is against the principles of journalism, but can everyone just take a deep breath and relax. Most of us don’t know squat yet.” — WaPo‘s Tim Carman.

“Not sure how head of Amazon turns around an aging newspaper, but Bezos knows a bit about the web. Maybe he just subsidizes good journalism” — Fox News’ Howard Kurtz (still so strange to write that).

“The sale of the Washington Post is probably a good reminder that nobody/nothing is untouchable.” — WTOP’s Neal Augenstein.

“In his letter to the Washington Post, Bezos said that our coverage of restaurant openings is important! I switched beats at the right time.” — WaPo‘s Maura Judkis.

“Based on your previous purchases, Jeff Bezos, you might also like: The Los Angeles Times, The Orlando Sentinel, Newsweek.” — Defense One‘s Marc Ambinder.

Dramatically untrue

“Antigua. Where love goes to die.” — Washingtonian Editor Garrett Graff, who is apparently a big watcher of “The Bachelorette.” But actually Des ends up with Chris. So technically Graff is a bit off.

Young girl voices what she wants from POTUS in next four years

“Um, I want him to take away the guns from other people, because for a girl like me it kind of scares me if I got killed.” — 8-year-old girl at The Dubliner bar this morning on MSNCB’s “Morning Joe.”

Flack melts down about Capitol Hill gridlock

“I’m pretty sure every cross street in DC is blocked. It’s virtually impossible to get back to Capitol Hill. No rhyme or reason.” — NRSC Spokesman Brian Walsh just after midnight Tuesday morning. And three minutes later…“Someone explain to me the security decision behind devoting 6 cops to shutting down 7th & M. There is nothing around that area at all.” More: “Understand. I’m all for security. Just seems like complete overkill.” He concludes on a bipartisan note…“To be sure, also remember it taking 3 hrs to go 12 blocks in 2001 for first GWB inauguration wknd. Should leave DC :)

Other complaints…

  • “Pro Tip: no matter how bad you think the traffic is in DC..it is 100 times worse than that.” — The Cook Report‘s Amy Walter. A follower snapped at her, saying, “Amy Walter, quit whining; u don’t live in Los Angeles. Take public transporation! [sic]“
  • “Another trip to DC where I only used Uber. Simply a brilliant service.” — RedState and CNN’s Erick Erickson.
  • “I concur with what @EWErickson just said. I’ve discovered how great uber is in DC, especially considering how shitass the cabs can be here.” — BuzzFeed‘s Rosie Gray, who recently moved to Washington from Manhattan. Everyone can congratulate Rosie on finding her new apartment — it’s in the Bloomington neighborhood of D.C.
  • “Dupont Circle on Inauguration Weekend=everything I hate. SO MANY BROS, GET ME OUTTA HERE.” — National Journal political reporter Elahe Izadi. Hmmm…so many bros?
  • “Took nearly half an hour to hail a cab. Happy inauguration!” — Greenwire‘s Jessica Estepa.
  • “Heading home. DC streets closed 5 hours earlier that supposed to. #gridlock #inaug2013 (@ In An Uber w/ 3 others)” — Poshbrood travel blogger Elizabeth Thorp.
  • “You really, really want to avoid driving w/in several blocks of WH right now. Street closures taking place. 18th St near gridlock.” — Roll Call‘s Steven Dennis.

On Michelle Obama’s new bangs: “I think the bangs are fantastic.” — Vogue‘s Andre Leon Talley, on “Morning Joe” this morning in a flamboyant black fur coat.

Washington Watch and CNN’s Roland Martin on Inauguration morning.

Actress Ashley Judd strikes a pose last night in the kitchen of Atlantic Publisher David Bradley, where she hung out for a good while, chatting up HuffPost‘s Howard Fineman, Bloomberg‘s Margaret Carlson and a swell of fine, crusty Washington D.C. men with varying amounts of ear hair. (More on the swanky Downton Bradley party later…)

TV journo marvels over empty Metro car

“Its very quiet INSIDE Capitol & amazingly Metro train car I was in was empty, completely empty. 4 years ago it was packed.” — NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell at 6:08 a.m.

Journo hopes to survive inauguration sans illness

“Last week, I thought #inauguration would be a race between me and my iPhone battery. Instead, it’s a race against my own immune system.” — WaPo‘s Maura Judkis.

How to Make it All About Me?

“I’m at Capitol South Metro Station (Washington D.C., DC)” — Syndicated columnist and Bullfight Strategies’ Karl Frisch at 6:19 a.m.

Important Question to Ponder: “It’s okay to take DayQuil with a vodka martini right?” — WaPo‘s Dan Zak.

D.C. Celebrity Watching: “Been playing ‘I know that celebrity from that scene in that movie where he looks [adjective here] but what is his name?!’ all night. Tired.” — The Hill‘s Alexandra Jaffe.

“President was sworn in today. Mon is the ceremonial event and speech. I elected to skip the party & hoopla and not attend Mon’s event.” — Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).

ABC “The View’s” Sherri Shepherd needs help

“Ashley pooped in Jeffrey’s bed, peed on Jeffrey’s carpet, chews his socks. If you come back & help me @cesarmillan, I’ll make you dinner :O)” — Sherri Shepherd, our new favorite Twitter obsession. Only Sherri can bring “poop” and “dinner” together into one sentence.

Party banter and — gasp — an insult for Kerry Washington.

TBD Titanic Loses Judkis to WaPo

Maura Judkis, arts writer for TBD, is going to work for WaPo. The offer comes on the heels of another TBDer, Editor Erik Wemple, who has taken a job at WaPo as a media writer. “I’m really excited to be joining the staff of the Washington Post, and I’m looking forward to meeting the arts team at the end of June,” Judkis told FishbowlDC.

But before she starts at WaPo she’ll complete a short fellowship for arts journalism in LA sponsored by the NEA and the Annenberg School at USC.

Judkis said she has no regrets about working at TBD, which has seen a lot of bleeding of employees as of late as journalists head for the door. “I’ve had a blast at TBD, and feel lucky to have played a role in building something new, with a super-talented group of people,” she said.

Congratulations to Judkis!

Quotes of the Day

Good Morning FishbowlDC Readers

Thought of the morning: If we get one more cutesy-vile Shoppybag message from journos around town we’re going to scream. Apparently it’s involuntary and hopefully we’re not sending them out too. Anyone else getting bombarded? Write us at FishbowlDC@mediabistro.com.


Primped and ready

Brazile’s bluntness about cash for nudity

“Just went through the TSA full body screen. Told them if they wanted to see me buck naked, someone needs to pay. I am from New Orleans!” — Democratic pundit and CNN Contributor Donna Brazile in a Monday tweet.

Sudden awareness that AT&T’s iPhone fails miserably

Dusk envy

“@politico would be proud — I’m winning the dusk!” — C-SPAN Communications Director Howard Mortman in a Monday tweet. He was joking. The inspiration came from a tweet he saw online last month.

Weird assignment

Good Morning FishbowlDC Readers

Blitzer plugs Millionaire Matchmaker

“Really good article in NYTimes about Millionaire Matchmaker’s Patti Stranger. Like so many of you, I like the show.” — CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in a surprising weekend tweet. Who’d have imagined he liked Stranger? Blitzer’s right — the profile is entertaining. At one point Stranger says of a female client with wild dirty blond curls, “Is it working for you, that curly hair?” Out of earshot she says, “She needs to straighten her hair, for one. She can’t get arrested with her rat’s nest.”

Scarborough sees himself as Swiss

“@MauraJudkis and I worked out a joint custody agreement for the jar of Nutella we received tonight. #TBDNight” — Washington Examiner’s Nikki Schwab in a tweet Saturday night blurring the lines between her place of employment and that of TBD‘s Maura Judkis. The pair attended the Italian American Foundation dinner. The swag bag contained Nutella, travel size olive oil and hair gel among other items.

Yikes

“PSA: I am tired, grumpy and think I may have kidney stones again… stay far far away!!” — Blonde Charity Mafia’s Katherine Kennedy in a weekend tweet. (She appears to be okay, her surrounding tweets concern a costume for a photo shoot at the W Hotel, Ugg boots and searching for a costume at Target.

Senate scribe visits Mt. Vernon

Tucker brings ‘man up’ into conversation with Greta

Take the lumps — thank you sir may I have another?” — The Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson on Greta Van Susteren‘s “On The Record” program last night discussing politicians who supported Obama’s health care package and who now want to distance themselves from it.

Heel hell

“The wearing of the 4inch heels to the WH garden harvest event–right after a rainstorm–was perhaps not the smartest thing I’ve ever done.” — Politics Daily‘s White House Correspondent Alex Wagner in a Wednesday tweet.

Save the notebooks

“If I had a dime for every partially used reporter’s notebook in my possession, it would equal an entry level reporter salary.” — Ethan Klapper, American University Journalism student and online managing editor for the student newspaper, The Eaglein a Wednesday tweet.

Journos Under the Grand Chapiteau

cirque de soleil - press night.jpg

Droves of journalists swarmed National Harbor last night for the media preview of Cirque du Soleil’s traveling spectacle, “Ovo.” Reporters from nearly every Washington news outlet were in attendance to indulge in complimentary pop, popcorn and one of the finest Cirque performances this blogger has ever seen.

Under the grand chapiteau FishbowlDC spotted WaPo’s Vicky Hallet, Michael O’Sullivan and Nelson Pressley, WTOP’s Richard Day, Washington Life’s John Arundel and Michael Clements, Fox 5′s Steve Chenevey (who was also spotted at Lady Gaga on Tuesday), WBJ’s Missy Frederick, Washingtonian’s Sophie Gilbert, CBS Radio’s Guy Lambert, Hot 99.5′s Samy K (also at Gaga on Tues), HuffPo’s Stephanie Green, CNN’s Padma Rama, Pamela’s Punch’s Pamela Sorensen, TBD’s Maura Judkis and the Examiner’s Nikki Schwab.

And these days you can’t shake a stick without hitting a few reality stars. Last night our stick hit Blonde Charity Mafia’s Katherine Kennedy, as well as Real Housewives of DC stars Lynda Erkiletian, Paul Wharton and Ebong Eka (all sans camera).

Cirque’s Ovo runs at National Harbor until October 24, 2010. It truly is a wonderful show and in my humble opinion, a much more robust experience than seeing a performance in Vegas. It’s worth every penny and the pilgrimage to PG County.

Morning Reading List, 12.10.07

4345057.jpg

Good morning Washington.

For those of you wondering why we’re not including the Politico, Roll Call and The Hill in our “Pictures of Morning Papers” feature — which we’d love to do — it’s because a.) Politico and Roll Call are usually a day behind in posting theres and b.) The Hill hasn’t put one up since Nov. 28.

Quickly navigate Morning Reading List:

NEWSPAPERS | TV | ONLINE MEDIA | MAGAZINES | RADIO | WEST WING REPORTAGE | REVOLVING DOOR | JOBS

  • You don’t think the Hillary Clinton campaign is sitting on some big story on Obama.

    NEWSPAPERS

  • Washington Post’s Deborah Howell writes, “Stories about rumors are tricky and easily misconstrued. A Nov. 29 story and headline that explored Barack Obama’s ‘connections to the Muslim world’ and rumors that he is Muslim were met with a swift Internet reaction that left some staffers stunned at its ferocity. Even Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles was ‘so upset’ that he took the unusual step of taking potshots at the story in an editorial page cartoon.”

  • AP reports, “Newspaper publishers, entering 2008 with some of the worst economic conditions in many years, said Wednesday they hope to bring even more readers — and ad spending — to their Web sites with expanded offerings of news, advertising and video.”

  • New York Times’ Clark Hoyt writes, “On Oct. 12, retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, the former top military commander of American forces in Iraq, delivered a scathing denunciation of the Bush administration’s ‘incompetent’ management of the war — and an equally blistering denunciation of the news media.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “Tribune Co., the newspaper publisher being taken private by real estate billionaire Sam Zell, plans to reduce borrowings by $500 million and confirmed the deal will close this year, sending the stock up nearly 8 percent.”

  • Page Six reports, “There’s a reason why it took so long for Ben Bradlee, 86, to receive the Legion of Honor from France, as the legendary Washington Post editor did last week. In the 1950s, when Bradlee was Newsweek’s Paris-based European bureau chief, he was expelled from the country for trying to interview leaders of Algeria’s revolutionary rebel army. His expulsion was repealed many years later, but the French are slow to forgive.”

  • Forbes.com reports, “You know what ails The New York Times Co.–eroding circulation, falling advertising revenue through the first three quarters of the year and the looming threat of stronger competition from The Wall Street Journal and its soon-to-be-owner Rupert Murdoch.”

  • Poynter Online reports, “Adapting to a changing news, information, and advertising economy means that newspapers must adapt the technology they use — not just online, but for print editions too.”

  • “Four veteran black sports journalists are taking a voluntary buyout offered at USA Today, wiping out its NBA coverage team, the USA Today staffers told Journal-isms on Saturday.”

  • SND Update Blog reports, “J. Ford Huffman, deputy managing editor of design at USA TODAY, one of the paper’s original architects and a 25-year veteran, has accepted a buyout — one of as many as 43 rumored to be pending (management sought 45 according to recent media reports).”

  • Slate’s Jack Shafer reports, “The World Health Organization publicly spanked the New York Times last week for breaking an embargoed study about measles. The offending article was a 60-word news brief by Celia W. Dugger in the paper’s Nov. 29 edition. No matter that the Times broke the embargo accidentally and apologized to WHO. The organization issued an e-mail announcing to the press corps the punishment—a two-week suspension of all Times reporters from the WHO media distribution list.”

  • The Center for American Progress reports, “Think Again: Reporting Iraq Is a Lot Harder than it Looks”

  • Bill Walsh, “national copy desk chief at The Washington Post and proprietor of The Slot: A Spot for Copy Editors, offers up the next set of well-edited bites” for Metrocurean.

  • Jeff Gannon writes, “The Old Media barely missed a toe-tapping beat in their relentless coverage of the Larry Craig ‘scandal’ to mention that a staffer for Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell was arrested last week by the FBI after showing up for a sexual rendezvous with someone he believed to be a 13 year-old boy. The handling of the ‘incident’ by the Old Media provides a textbook example of pervasive liberal media bias I discuss in my book, ‘The Great Media War, A Battlefield Report’.”

    TV

  • NBC Now Will Air Freedom’s Watch Ad

  • Satellite TV on the Move, at Fox News” (and more from TVNewser)

  • BusinessWeek reports, “Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin has suffered a number of setbacks in his increasingly lonely fight against the cable companies. Martin, of course, is determined to place tighter regulations on the industry by restricting the reach of companies and allowing subscribers to pay only for the channels they want. Now, Democratic and Republican lawmakers—as well as Martin’s fellow commissioners—are questioning his selective use of data to support his campaign.”

  • USA Today reports, “Here’s a bit of cheery news for media executives concerned about the softening economy. Political campaigns likely will spend more than $4.5 billion on ads and marketing in the 2008 election season, a 64% leap from 2004 — the last cycle with a presidential race — research and consulting firm PQ Media says in a report out Thursday.”

  • Times Online reports,James Murdoch, the chief executive of BSkyB, is expected to step down today to take on the job of running News Corporation’s European and Asian operations. Mr Murdoch will be replaced by Jeremy Darroch, who is the chief financial officer of BSkyB. Sky is 39.1 per cent owned by News Corp, parent company of The Times.”

  • TVNewser reports, “Last week’s CNN/YouTube debate propelled the CNN program into the top 10 in all of cable news programs, the first time in more than two years that a single CNN program has cracked the top 10. The ranking is compiled by total viewers, Live +SD.”

  • B&C reports, “Some 1,500 communications attorneys, lobbyists and their guests, including a few ink-stained scribes, took refuge from the picture-postcard snow to gather at Washington, D.C.’s Hilton hotel Wednesday night for the annual Federal Communications Commission chairman’s dinner.”

    with a ‘Super Tuesday,’ Dec. 11, highlighted by in-depth analysis of the latest local and national poll numbers as the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary approach and the races heat up.”

  • Arianna Huffington writes, “Huckabee Tries to Shoot the Messenger, But Wounds His Campaign Instead”

    MAGAZINES

  • A reader says, “scherer worked at salon, mother jones and the nation. hmm, i wonder what his political inclinations are? and yet, if time hired someone who had worked at the weekly standard, national review and wash times, there would be an uproar.”

  • TVNewser reports, “Macrovision, a California-based distributer of digital content, is buying TVGuide in a $2.8 billion deal.”

  • National Journal’s Bill Powers writes, “According to the media, we’re supposed to have learned all kinds of things from the rise of Mike Huckabee. … What I’ve taken away from the Huckabee phenomenon is that we should stop worrying so much about horse race journalism.”

  • NewsBusters reports, “Try to remember a time in September when it was reported that the Hillary Clinton campaign showed its ‘hard-nosed media strategy’ by getting GQ magazine to spike a piece on Clinton team in-fighting by threatening to pull access to Bill Clinton for GQ’s planned December ‘Man of the Year’ cover package. Well, that ‘Man of the Year’ issue is out, and there was no bucking, only fawning.”

      WAMU’s Diane Rehm picks up a CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Palliative Care Award from the Greater Washington Partnership For Palliative And End-of-Life Care. For a January 2007 interview with author Calvin Trillin concerning “About Alice.” The award will be presented tonight during a reception at DC’s Sibley Hospital…..

  • In a recent online chat, Going Out Gurus took “a moment to remember Tom Terrell, the critic, promoter and DJ, who passed away last week after a long battle with prostate cancer.”

  • Public Eye reports, “You probably don’t know this, but there was yet another presidential debate the other day. You didn’t see it. But don’t feel bad — not that you would — but nobody saw it. It was on National Public Radio. And the reviews have been positive, save for the little ‘it put me to sleep’ factor. But all the plaudits got this writer thinking how you could repackage the debate, draw a crowd and inform a potentially large size of the electorate.”

    WEST WING REPORTAGE

  • Texas Monthly interviews Dan Bartlett.

  • The New York Post reports, Karl Rove, the controversial and long-time senior adviser to President George W. Bush, is shopping a memoir in an auction that will kick off today and likely result in a seven-figure payday.”
