“My dog suddenly developed a thunderstorm terror look.” — WAMU reporter Martin Austermuhle late Thursday afternoon.
A not so cordial conversation among journalists
The conversationalists are FNC Contributor Richard Grenell, CNN’s Jim Sciutto, NYT’s Brian Stelter and NPR’s David Folkenflik.
Grenell: “Attention media critics: CNN didn’t disclose @jimsciuttoCNN’s relationship with Obama foreign policy team before his report @davidfolkenflik”
Grenell: “We know @brianstelter won’t raise CNN’s no disclosure on @jimsciuttoCNN because he wants the @CNNReliable job.”
Stelter: “I’ve been abstaining from writing stories about CNN, Fox and MSNBC for 2+ months.”
Sciutto: “@RichardGrenell I’d ask you to watch my reporting before you question whether I do real journalism. I’ll let my record stand for itself.”
Folkenflik: “@RichardGrenell Jim strikes me as good reporter but reasonable to expect disclosures to remind viewers at his new network so they know.”
Grenell: “@davidfolkenflik reasonable? Obama foreign policy appointee is now lead for CNN on Obama’s Syria policy. may work in DC, public outraged!”
