Newly Minted ?Ebola Czar? Conspicuously Absent from Ebola Strategy Meeting

2 hours ago

ICYMI: America is freaking completely out over three isolated cases of Ebola with a strand of connection to warrant a skosh of hysteria (and some PR fees for managing crisis communications). To help deal with a situation that is less than a month old, President Obama felt pressured empowered to appoint an “Ebola Czar” who will help guide the federal response while working hand-in-hand with the CDC. Enter into the fray Ron Klain, formerly known as Chief of Staff for Veeps Biden and Gore. Klain, who will reportedly answer to both White House homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, is supposed to be the go-to source for all things Ebola. Yet reports held that Klain did not attend a White House meeting Friday discussing the federal response to the domestic threat. And when it came time for the first strategy meeting, Klain was nowhere to be found. No word yet from any of his bosses…yet. Chin up, America. New Career Opportunities Daily: The best jo...

Gawker Clarifies on Tweets by Writers

2 hours ago

Here’s what we know about #Gamergate: people mention it on Twitter a lot. The root of the story concerns alleged ethical transgressions by a blog that covers video games, but the tag quickly devolved into a large group of anonymous (male) people wishing violence on women. Last week, the guy behind the hashtag admitted to BuzzFeed that it was all about a recent breakup and said that, while he regrets certain “outcomes,” he would do it again. On Thursday, Sam Biddle of Gawker’s Valleywag made a joke about the story that lead to an internal memo from editor Joel Johnson in which he effectively warned writers to be careful about what they tweet.

Celebrity Comes -- And Goes

4 hours ago

In the news this morning a story about President Obama on the stump in Maryland before an audience that was decreasing as he spoke.  There may have been many reasons for people leaving, but Obama must be aware that there was a time not long ago when voters would queue to hear him and would cheer until hoarse.  The lesson here is that if one depends on celebrity to make his way, he should be ready for the day when the public's attention wanders to something else.  Only a few performers have mastered the art of renewing themselves constantly in order to stay in the public eye.  Among politicians, there aren't many who can command a camera and an audience whenever they want it.  When they do, they become tiresome in time, and one wishes they would go away, give it a rest, step down... shutup.
