Good Morning FishbowlDC Readers

QUOTES of the DAY


ALEXANDER HAMILTON WEIGEL? “Happy Civil War Day! Here’s the statue of the CSA’s vice president in the Capitol.” — Slate‘s Dave Weigel in a Tuesday tweet accompanied by the above photograph.

Two rude journalists named ‘Mike’

“Both @mikedebonis and I are tweeting from dinner table. Because we’re rude.” — WCP‘s Managing Editor Mike Madden in a Tuesday night tweet. Mike Debonis works for WaPo and covers local politics.

Overused words on Twitter

“If cable TV abuses the words ‘exclusive’ and ‘breaking,’ Twitter has ruined ‘must read’, ‘genius’ and ‘brilliant’” — Slate‘s John Dickerson in a Tuesday tweet.

Rolling Stone writer gives Politico blogger stamp of approval

“Acts of journalism committed at State Department presser! Watch out Pentagon press corps, it might be contagious!” — Rolling Stone‘s Michael Hastings in a Tuesday tweet. He linked to Politico‘s Josh Gerstein‘s “Under the Radar” blog here.

What’s it really like to work with HuffPost‘s Terkel?

“Lies. I’m sunshine & lollipops.” — HuffPost‘s Amanda Terkel in a Tuesday tweet in response to Think Progress Editor Faiz Shakir jokingly (we think) suggesting she has some rage. He replied, “Sunshine on outside, thunderous rage on the inside.”

Journo’s kid won’t likely grow up to be The Donald

“Teaching my toddler the difference b/w positive & negative attention. So I guess I’ve destroyed his chances of being the next Donald Trump.” — Politico‘s Molly Ball in a Tuesday tweet. Hopefully she’s also giving the child an alternative hairdo.

We have a birder in our midst…

“Bald eagle with fish in claws just flew over DC’s Roosevelt Bridge to his Potomac River perch.” — U.S. News & World Report’s Paul Bedard in a Tuesday tweet.

Sam Stein: You’ve Been Warned

“@samsteinhp If you keep this up I’m going to have to block you.” — Former Bush White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer in a Monday tweet to HuffPost‘s Sam Stein. A little context: The Fleisher/Stein feud concerns Red Sox Vs. Yankees trash talking.

Someone pinch her

“Let me just say ‘Morning Joe’ is the greatest show in the world because I’m sitting here with Robert Redford. [Norah's famous laughter] Oh and Mike Barnicle.” — NBC’s Norah O’Donnell on MSNBC this morning.

The Underwear Question

“Is there a woman within the range of these pixels who needs to check to know the color of her underpants? Or a man who doesn’t?” — WaPo‘s Gene Weingarten in a Tuesday tweet. An hour later, he concluded, “FWIW: More than a few women have reported personal underpants ignorance. Ergo, my thesis is disproven, and withdrawn.”

WaPo Computers Lose Power

This just in…WaPo reporter Dan Zak announces that computers are down.

@MrDanZak: “Computers just lost power in the newsroom. Everyone’s standing up, actually talking to each other now. Lunch!”

WaPo Federal Eye blogger Ed O’Keefe also commenting on the outage:

“A power outage is impacting parts of our newsroom.”

Update #1: A WaPo reporter tells me, “Looks like our internet crashed. Messages indicate it was a major, major crash.”

Update #2: WaPo newsroom empties out.

Update #3: WaPo Book World Editor Ron Charles treats crash like a potential snow day, tweeting, “Who knows — maybe we’ll all have to go work at home!”

Update #4: A more dramatic WaPo local politics reporter Mike Debonis writes: “Mass internet outage at WaPo. Mass panic … err, mass curiosity ensues.” And then adds, “Down elevators packed as aimless WaPo worker bees depart en masse…”

Update #5: WaPo‘s Lindsay Applebaum reports, “Angry editors and reporters, standing and waiting for power. Aaand lunch break.”

Update #6: One WaPo reporter sounds pretty unruffled. Tells FishbowlDC: “Have heard there is an internet outage. No emails for the last 30 mins.”

Update #7: That was relatively fast. Power is back on, a WaPo reporter tells me.

City Paper’s Back to the Future Time Stamping

500full-christopher-lloyd.jpg

Dare to Compare: Is Fenty vs. Gray like Clinton vs. Dole?
Or the other Clinton vs. Obama?

By Mike DeBonis on April 9, 2010

We’ve heard of premature time stamping before at certain Washington publications, but this is really early. Washington City Paper’s Loose Lips section posted the above headline and time stamp two days early. We spotted this post on April 7 at 11:11 p.m.. As you can see, it’s dated April 9.

How could WCP post on day that isn’t here yet? We’re not sure, but as far as we know, it’s still not April 9. We requested comment from Mike DeBonis but did not hear back by FBDC press time.

Update DeBonis really is not to blame. The publication has always been dated for Friday even though it comes out on Thursday. “It’s a hiccup,” DeBonis explained, clearly dismayed by the phenomenon. “It’s an accident of history but that’s the way it is. It’s a historical anomaly. It’s that way, its always been that way and no one has ever changed it.”

Morning Reading List 11.05.09

Washington City Paper presents “Fisticuffs at the Washington Post,” starring Andrew Beaujon as Marcus Brauchli, Jason Cherkis as Chris Richards, Erin Niedowski as Lynn Medford, Erik Wemple as Manuel Roig-Franzia, Amanda Hesse as Monica Hesse and Mike DeBonis as Henry Allen.

Happy belated birthday to Christie Findlay and Kevin McVicker! Good morning FishbowlDC! What we know and what we’re reading this Thursday morning…

Banjos, Bare Feet and Books: A Party for Ryan Grim

Grim’s book (left) Members of Merle Haggard Haggard (right)

Saturday night at American Legion #8 – Capitol Hill, DC journos and a few stray winos gathered to toast the release of Ryan Grim‘s new book, “This Is Your Country on Drugs: The Secret History of Getting High in America.”

The HuffPo reporter and new author inked copies of his book with the help of wife Elizan Garcia while barefooted band, Merle Haggard Haggard rocked Legion 8.

Spotted: Michael Steel, Jared Allen, David Mark, Ken Vogel, Bob Hillman, Anne Marson, Mike Allen, Jennifer Kohl, Leonard Roberge, Dave Jamieson, Mike Debonis, Jason Cherkis, Gail Ross, Howard Yoon, Marissa Newhall, Matt Mackowiak, Rachel Morris, Sarah Courteau and Amos Snead.

Not since the release of Britney Spears‘ “Heart to Heart” has a book signing boasted bare feet and banjos with such klass. Well done, Mr. Grim!

Full Court Press: Journos vs. DC Council

Yesterday at the Verizon Center, the Wizards took some time off to let the DC Council and Team Media go head-to-head. WTOP reports, “Amazingly, no one was hurt.”

Final Score: Media 35, DC Council 25. And besides pride, what was at stake? As a result of journo victory, the council now must declare a “Press Day” in DC.

The rules were simple- half court, one woman from each team on the floor at all times, seven-minute quarters and from Yeas & Nays, above all, no one from the mayor’s office.

Team Media was coached by WAMU’s Kojo Nnamdi and the lineup included WTOP’s Mark Plotkin, Mark Segraves, WRC’s Tom Sherwood, Fox’s Wisdom Martin, City Paper’s Mike Debonis and Erik Wemple, Examiner’s Mike Neibauer and Jacque Bland, WaPo’s David Nakamura, Nikita Stewart and Bill Turque, Wash Business Journal’s Jonathan O’Connell and DCist’s Martin Austermuhle.

Wisdom proved to be not only the brains, but the star of the Team Media, scoring 20 of the win’s 35 points.

DC Council was coached by Marion Barry. He told WTOP had he been able to play, that would have made all the difference for the D.C. Council.

The game previewed the annual girls’ and boys’ city championship games and all proceeds benefited the District of Columbia Interscholastic Athletic Association (DCIAA) and the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC).

    NEWSPAPERS

  • MarketWatch’s Jon Friedman writes, “Throughout the campaign, the media have treated Paul as a footnote. Snickering pundits all but dismissed him as a cranky kook, in the tradition of another Lone Star State insurgent, Ross Perot. Even when the mainstream publications covered him, you could imagine the assignment editors rolling their eyes in amusement, like parents patronizing a child. Yet anyone who looked hard enough knew that there was more to Paul than an inability to amass delegates. Most of the media, turned off by his shrill libertarian leanings, missed the real news value of Paul’s story — namely, the Texas congressman’s ability to connect intensely with voters.”

  • The Pew Weekly News Interest Index shows,Hillary Clinton’s retraction of her claim that she came under sniper fire while visiting Bosnia in 1996 was one of the main campaign storylines last week. But the controversy over her statements did not resonate as widely as the furor over statements made by Barack Obama’s pastor earlier in March. Four-in-ten Americans heard a lot about Clinton’s claim that she came under sniper fire, compared with 51% who had heard a lot about Rev. Wright’s sermons the week before.”
  • “Results from the Dow Jones Insight — 2008 Presidential Election Media Pulse show that Barack Obama’s pivotal race speech on March 18 may have helped mitigate that week’s controversy surrounding the remarks of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, shifting attention back to the issues of the economy and the upcoming Pennsylvania primary.”

  • CJR reports, “Business news is booming these days. Business-news sections not so much. They are disappearing and have been doing so regularly for months. The trend seems set to continue.”

  • Washington Blade editor’s Kevin Naff asks, “Why did editor Len Downie go to such lengths to hide the simple fact that a soldier was gay?”

  • Huffington Post has a “Eulogy for Dead Trees”

  • “As Katharine Weymouth, granddaughter of the legendary Katharine Graham, takes over as publisher of the Washington Post,” The Washingtonian has some “suggestions for her agenda, based on interviews with subscribers and Post staffers.”

  • Romenesko reports, “WSJ changes news desk structure”

  • Wall Street Journal reports, “Veteran newsman Roger Mudd” reports the “five best” “essential works about journalism.”

  • Joel Achenbach writes, “Let’s have a blog item today that’s not about me and my personal obsessions and neuroses. Instead, let’s talk about the general plight of all those middle-aged newspaper reporters out there who, at the age of 47, are just barely too young to get the buyout offer. Clearly it is time for these people to think about the next big career move.”

  • Howard Kurtz writes, “I’ve said many times that Barack Obama has gotten easy treatment from the news media, although that has changed a bit in recent weeks, particularly since the Rev. Jeremiah Wright became a household name, at least in households that watch plenty of cable. In fact, there’s a bit of a narrative about Obama as an elitist starting to take hold in the media, and that could prove troublesome for him.”

  • New York Time’s Public Editor writes, “Change Can Be Painful, but This One Shouldn’t Hurt”

  • Washington Post’s Deborah Howell writes, “Most regular local readers of The Post read it on newsprint. And when they want something in the paper and it’s not there, they usually don’t like me telling them to find it on washingtonpost.com.”

  • Washington City Paper’s Mike DeBonis asks, “Has Adrian Fenty reneged on his campaign tax pledge?”

  • Washington Post reports, “Major television networks are privately saying that if they have to worry about a fine every time someone utters a profanity on air, they may have to stop real-time broadcasting of live events such as the Academy Awards and Grammys. At the same time, the head of the Federal Communications Commission and parents groups are saying that if the Supreme Court removes the threat, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox will seize the opportunity to make the airwaves more coarse and profane.”

  • 23/6 has the “Inappropriate Hottie Rundown: Racially Diverse Pundit Edition”

  • Forbes.com reports, “Forty years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Tom Brokaw is making sure his legacy isn’t forgotten.

  • Portfolio’s Mixed Media reports, “Is the Huffington Post really a $200 million company? Monday’s New York Times story about the fast-growing group blog/news aggregator left a lot of people wondering about that eye-catching number, reportedly the price the company uses in its internal discussions about the possibility of a sale.

  • Guardian’s greenslade reports, “I have argued for some time that the internet will free us from media mogul domination. Oddly, Rupert Murdoch has said much the same thing, a clue that I was being more than a shade optimistic. Now comes evidence that the democratising force of the net is anything but a given.”

  • Gannett Blog reports, “The non-profit Freedom Forum’s most recent tax return shows that it paid Founder Al Neuharth $225,000 in 2006, plus gave him a $200,545 expense account — the biggest such account of any officer, director or trustee.
