  • 05/01/17--13:40: There Is a Bear in a Tree
  • There was a bear in a tree in Roanoke, Virginia, Monday. Efforts to tranquilize the bear were eventually successful, and, after a three-hour standoff, firefighters were able to nudge the sedated bear off the branch it was occupying and onto a tarp.  Logan Sherrill of WDBJ in Roanoke did an excellent job covering the bear […]

    You’d think the repo truck was heading straight for Bret Baier‘s house. “Sinclair Broadcast Group’s $3.9 billion deal for Tribune Media is putting Fox in a hole,” Jennifer Saba writes for Reuters. “With such a national broadcast footprint, it has the penetration to match Fox News’ audience,” Michael Wolff writes in the Hollywood Reporter.  Sinclair “could leverage the […]

  • 05/19/17--03:15: Why Crystal City Matters
  • Last April a New York Times article briefly infuriated a lot of Washingtonians by suggesting Crystal City was “quietly and persistently reinventing itself.” Many of the offended fixated on a comparison made by Mitchell N. Schear, the president of Vornado/Charles E. Smith: “Think Brooklyn and Manhattan,” he said. “You’re close enough, but you’re not paying higher taxes and utilities.” Lost in the digital […]

    Washingtonian is spending the day exploring Crystal City. Read all of our Crystal City Day coverage here. Crystal City’s Bike to Work Day pit stop in the neighborhood’s “water park” is one of the region’s busiest, a Washington Area Bicyclist Association rep tells me. It gets busy early here–people are swarming by 7 a.m. There were […]

    When Politico moved into its new office in Rosslyn in 2015, its lavish program of free snacks drew immediate praise from employees. The publication’s previous office had a somewhat grim break room served by vending machines, and employees reveled in the upgraded options. Now that news about the Trump administration breaks at an unhealthy pace and staffers rely […]

    Last year, 87 percent of NPR’s audience identified as white. That’s only slightly less snowy than a line for Pepe the Frog T-shirts, and one of the things keeping NPR executives’ sheets shiny with sweat each night: The public-media network has committed to “sounding like America,” but its audience has not. Across town at public-radio […]

    Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, and Steven Spielberg visited in the Washington Post newsroom Thursday to conduct research on The Post, a movie about the Pentagon Papers Spielberg plans to direct. (The New York Times gets skunked again!) Among the highlights of their trip so far: Sitting in on a meeting and meeting Executive Editor Martin Baron. I’ll add to this […]

    On last Tuesday’s edition of the New York Times podcast The Daily, reporters Michael Barbaro and Matthew Rosenberg discussed the Washington Post‘s resounding scoop the evening before: During a meeting at the White House last week, President Trump had revealed classified information to Russian officials. Rosenberg, who covers national security and intelligence for the Times, was effusive with praise […]

    The New York Times‘s decision to eliminate its public editor was not exactly met with a mass uproar when it was announced Wednesday, just mild disappointment and a little gnashing of teeth from good-journalism types. The job “really served to placate other journalists, not typical Times readers,” Washington Post reporter Christopher Ingraham tweeted, evincing a longstanding suspicion in newsrooms that […]

    A common affliction among staffers at the DC alt-weekly Washington City Paper is the fear that they’ll be the last person to occupy their position. That angst is not uncommon to people working at alt-weeklies in the late teens–that at any point the owners could turn the lights off. Perhaps there was just such a rush of […]

    The DC-area public radio station WAMU finished its 2017 fiscal year in April with an operating surplus of more than $300,000, the first time the station has ended in the black since 2013. Donations from listeners and a favorable distribution deal with NPR for the station’s new show 1A helped nudge WAMU into profitability, general manager J.J. Yore says. […]

    The Alexandria neighborhood where a gunman fired on a baseball practice involving members of Congress Wednesday is called Del Ray. It’s a former streetcar suburb of DC and not a touristy destination like Old Town. It’s mostly residential with a lot of local, non-chain businesses. Del Ray is very walkable, a place where mornings you see a lot of […]

    There’s a Jolly Roger tacked up on a white wall in CityLab‘s DC office. And if the pirate spirit is not always obvious in a publication dedicated to challenges and opportunities regarding transportation, housing, and urban planning, CityLab insiders will tell you they’ve got the yo-ho-ho where it counts–it’s now independent from The Atlantic, which launched CityLab in 2011 as The Atlantic Cities. On Tuesday the […]

    A new social-media policy at the Washington Post prohibits conduct on social media that “adversely affects The Post’s customers, advertisers, subscribers, vendors, suppliers or partners.” In such cases, Post management reserves the right to take disciplinary action “up to and including termination of employment.” The Post‘s Guild sent out a bulletin Sunday night protesting the policy. “If […]
