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.

Dr. Oz, Kareem and Lewis Black to Square Off Against Washington’s Alleged Power Journos

We now have the details for the Jeopardy “Power Players” edition that is coming to D.C. It tapes this weekend and starts Saturday morning. The first round will see MSNBC’s Chris Matthews battle Lizzie O’Leary from CNN and former POTUS Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs. Their game will tape at 10am ET. After that, Fox News’ Dana Perino will battle CNBC’s David Faber and basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Because when we think Washington D.C. power players, we think Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. After that, BBC’s Katty Kay faces down Fox’s Chris Wallace and Dr. Mehmet Oz. Again, Oprah’s doctor isn’t the first person that pops to mind when we think D.C. Power Players but he can talk poop with the best of ‘em. Following that meeting of the minds, CNN’s Anderson Cooper meets MSNBC’s Kelly O’Donnell and NYT columnist and all-around big-brain Thomas L. Friedman. The final matchup tapes at 6:35pm ET and features MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, comedian Lewis Black and Chicago Tribune’s Clarence Page.
