First Look: National Journal Redesign, to Serve Chicken and Waffles on Capitol Hill

National Journal 6_21 coverTomorrow, National Journal is set to celebrate the redesign of its print magazine, and we’ve got what’s slated for the cover (to the left, to the left).

Earlier this month, we wrote of a 50% increase in the outlet’s readership as well as six new hires and included an internal memo that previewed a redesign for the print magazine.

“In three weeks, we’ll launch the new, totally re-imagined National Journal magazine, packed with a fantastic collection of long-form pieces from great National Journal bylines including Marin Cogan, Tim Alberta and Peter Beinart and new-to-us voices such as Simon van-Zuylen Wood and Michael Gerson,” wrote editor in chief Tim Grieve to staff.

And tomorrow morning from 8 – 10 am, be on the look out near the Capital South Metro for free Capital Chicken and Waffles and by the Union Station Metro for free Mama’s Donut Bites along with coffee and copies of the magazine. The print edition will also be distributed Thursday morning on K Street outside the Farragut North and McPherson Square Metro stations.

DC Journos Gather For Discussion; Almost Certainly No Yelling Involved, Maybe

Reasonable PersonAre you a reasonable person? Do you prefer level-headed and subdued discussions about things like “politics” and “news” and “America’s place in the world”? In other words, are you BOOOOOOORRRRIIIIING/a responsible member of society? If so, then you will love this event. Virtually no yelling guaranteed! It doesn’t get much more reasonable than this:

EVENT:         
The News Literacy Project and George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs will present a discussion with prominent members of the media on America’s changing role in the world and how the press covers it.

WHO: 
Panelists:

Thomas L. Friedman, foreign affairs columnist, The New York Times
Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent, NBC News; host, MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports”
Michael Gerson, columnist, the Washington Post

Moderator:
Gwen Ifill, co-anchor, “PBS NewsHour”; moderator, “Washington Week”

Okay sure, there is a chance that Friedman will yell about something in his charmingly avuncular way -”The world is flat, I tells ya!”, “Someone get me a ginger ale!” -that sort of thing. Aaaaand, it’s possible that Gerson might say something incendiary/warmongery. And you’re right,  it’s likely that Friedman will be unable to resist taking whatever bait Gerson puts out there, but Mitchell and Ifill will probably keep a lid on things…

Okay, there might be yelling.

Show starts at 7:30 tonight at the Lisner Auditorium at GW, 30 21st St., NW, Washington, D.C.

Media types who wanna go should contact Nicole Carlotto at 202-994-6466 or nfcarlotto@gwu.edu. And if you get any funny pictures, send them in! fishbowldc@mediabistro.com

Morning Reading List 08.20.13.

1. Filner’s sketchy record — Though San Diego Mayor Bob Filner‘s past record on sexual harassment shouldn’t come as any big surprise to anyone, it’s still jarring to see it in black and white. Today, Charles Johnson of The Daily Caller spells out the details of Filner’s record while in Congress. While he protested adamantly about sexual harassment and assault in the military and attacked an opponent for sexual improprieties, he defended President Bill Clinton.  Read the full story here.

Why you should read it: If you aren’t grossed out by Filner at this point, here’s a few more reasons. Plus, there’s a fun parody video out by a local TV station depicting his ridiculous behavior toward women.

2. Morning tear jerker — In an opinion piece published Monday night, Michael Gerson writes a compelling personal essay about saying goodbye to his eldest son going off to college. He writes, “The emotions of a parent, I can attest, are an odd mix: part pride, part resignation, part self-pity, even a bit of something that feels like grief. The experience is natural and common. And still planets are thrown off their axes.” He admits his own intense homesickness when he was a freshman in college and says his son will experience the same. Read the story here.

Why you should read it: This town, man. Only in Washington would a columnist admit to getting emotional advice from a “high-powered Washington foreign policy expert.” God forbid it’s just a neighbor or someone with a boring, ordinary job.

See our last pick…

WaPo Adds Rosen as an ‘Insider’

As we all know by now, Democratic Analyst Hilary Rosen usually has a few things on her mind and she’s not one to hold back. Anyone recall her interaction with Ann Romney? Sure, she apologized. But not without first going viral.

Anyhow, Rosen joins WaPo‘s opinion pages. She’ll write daily political commentary as one of  “The Insiders”, sparring alongside Republican strategist Ed Rogers. The Insiders are a group of writers that include Jonathan Capehart, David Ignatius, Michael Gerson and more.

As Rosen writes in her first blog post, “There isn’t much that this Jewish, lesbian, liberal woman has in common with [Ed] politically, but I sure do respect the dues he has paid and the knowledge he’s gained on his journey to success.  And I am proud to be alongside him as an ‘Insider.’” Warns Rogers, “I expect Hilary to whack me when she thinks I deserve it. I won’t hold back myself.”

Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt gives her the nod: “Hilary will be a lively addition to our diverse voices. Like Ed, she is an experienced insider with strong views and an original, independent mind.”
