I covered the Clinton administration for seven years. I don’t remember ever seen details of how much it costs to spend a night or two in Paris or London or any other place for that matter.
CNN anchor Wolf Blizter • Discussing his surprise at a recent report detailing the costs of Vice President Joe Biden’s recent trip to Europe. The price tag was hefty — in Paris, for example, he spent nearly $500,000 on a single-night hotel stay. According to the State Department, the costs are actually normal, largely because, for security reasons, the administration often has to book out full hotels for the vice president to stay in. While the costs struck Bush Administration officials as high, they said they understood why they might fly so sky-high. source

Here’s Wolf Blitzer and his camera crew running for their lives after an air raid siren went off in the Israeli city of Ashkelon — which has been a target of rocket fire — earlier today. “The sirens went off minutes after we arrived. The camera was hanging around my neck,” wrote CNN staffer Linda Roth, who says that a more professional version of this clip will air on “The Situation Room” later today. Anderson Cooper had a similar situation over the weekend. (ht HyperVocal)

When I was asked to do this, we were always clear it would be temporary — daily newscast anchoring is not what I am built do do. But that doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed the program didn’t perform better.
CNN anchor John King • Discussing the end of his “John King, USA,” which will get replaced with another hour of Wolf Blitzer doing his “Situation Room” thing. King will instead focus on the campaign trail — which he feels is his greatest strength. It’ll be his fourth presidential campaign with CNN. His show will continue through June 29.

In which Wolf Blitzer, of all people, schools Donald Trump on the air over his position on birtherism. An excerpt:

WB: Donald, you’re beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you.

DT: You are, Wolf. Let me tell you something, I think you sound ridiculous, and if you’d ask me a question and let me answer it.

WB: Here’s the question, did the conspiracy start in 1961 where theHonolulu Star-Bulletin and the Advertiser contemporaneously published announcements that he was born in Hawaii?

DT: Many people put those announcements in because they wanted to get the benefit because of getting so-called born in this country. Many people did it. It was something done by many people even though they weren’t born in the country. You know and I know it.

Trump hosts a fundraiser for Mitt Romney tonight in Las Vegas.

Long done with this issue, admittedly, but there’s a great laugh-out-loud moment six minutes in where Wolf asks Trump what “his people” found about Obama’s birth certificate back in April of last year — he claimed to Meredith Viera that his people “cannot believe what they’re finding” about Obama’s birth certificate. “We don’t have to go into OLD NEWS,” Trump says. “That’s old news.”

Things that actually just happened: Wolf Blitzer asked Ron Paul if he was trying to help Mitt Romney on the off-chance that Rand Paul would become Mitt’s running mate. Ron denied it, saying “it wouldn’t work.” Could you imagine though?

No Blitz, that’s oversimplifying here… I’m sorry Blitz, i meant Wolf. Since we’re on a blitz debate- I apologize, Wolf.

Herman Cain, referring to moderator Wolf Blitzer as “Blitz.” Blitzer’s response, calling him simply “Cain,” didn’t really work as well. One syllable name, that.

Three fairly edgy things Roger Ailes said in his AP interview

  • one On networks that criticize Fox News: “Everybody who’s getting their ass beat vilifies the opponent. This is the first rule of fighting.” Boom.
  • two On an anchor he thinks does it wrong: ”Wolf Blitzer is an excellent reporter, but he’s not a star.” He says his back is to the camera too much.
  • three And the coup de grace, on one of his most notable hires: “I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings.” Whew. source

Remember how we covered that debate last week? Well, imagine us doing it again. CNN’s hosting another debate full of excitement tonight, this one sponsored by Tea Party Express. DC Decoder's in, too. Will Wolf Blitzer ask the candidates inane questions that have nothing to do with anything, like John King did? Will CNN tease Twitter at every opportunity, or throw QR codes on the screen? Let’s find out. The debate starts at 8 p.m. EDT.

Wolf Blitzer tries out a Situation Room without walls, magic or otherwise: A massive power outage over at CNN’s DC bureau forced the network into some unexpected measures to get Situation Room on the air. After all, what would America do if they missed just one scheduled day with Wolf Blitzer? Looks like Situation Plaza might be more appropriate.
