The Mirror

All before the crack of dawn…

A lot was happening here in Washington this morning as journalists woke and set the tones of their day.

And many, frighteningly, well before 6 a.m.

This is a serious town of go-getters. Let’s see what they had on their plates, shall we?


Above is LAT‘s Maeve Reston‘s beautiful shot. She says, “Before Sunrise. Nice to be home.”

At 5:06 a.m. American Urban Radio’s White House Correspondent April Ryan had to take care of something rather touching.

But as you’ll note, it’s not all heartwarming at this hour. At 5:16 a.m. Sen. Ted Cruz‘s (R-Texas) senior speechwriter Amanda Carpenter was screaming.


NBC Washington morning anchor Angie Goff at 5:32 a.m. had her sights on something far sweeter.


And finally, at 5:38 a.m., Conservative blogger Robert Stacy McCain, meanwhile, had God (and hate) on his mind. What’s a little God and hate before dawn? Fun times.
