Some odds and ends today:

  • Washington Whispers sheds a bit more light onto Wolf Blitzer’s love for George Washington University basketball. When is he going to invite Jack Cafferty to a game? Oh, right: Never.

  • Guess the Walter Shapiro/Salon.com discussion about journalism education was well-placed. Journalism job hunters everywhere: You may want to look elsewhere. “Newspapers Responsible for Only 5 Percent of New Hires.”

  • First we learn that Sunday talk shows apparently lean right. But further digging into MediaMatters’ new report also informs us that Sunday talk shows–surprise, surprise–also lean towards John McCain: “Arizona’s senior senator has by far been the most frequent Sunday show guest, with 124 appearances in nine years.”
