JOURNO HATE MAIL
David Hookstead is editor of The Daily Caller‘s “The Smoke Room.”
Just a thought. David Hookstead covered some good ground with Tim Kennedy; however, I’d encourage him to have more enthusiasm or chutzpah. Such great guests and topics require they interviewer to appear engaged and excited. Sadly, David seemed bored. Thank you for the news you bring, DC.

CNN’s Cillizza has zero sense of humor about Spicer’s Emmy appearance
CNN’s Chris Cillizza, who writes a No Point newsletter for CNN called “The Point,” doesn’t think former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer‘s goof at the Emmys was very funny.
This should come as no surprise, considering that Cillizza, a folksy DC newsman brand, doesn’t often have a sense of humor about anything. And this just gives him a dumb reason to go off on a morally superior rant about how unfunny Spicer showing up on a Melissa McCarthy podium was.
The annoying thing about Cillizza is you could see his “This Sean Spicer thing isn’t funny” talking point coming a mile away.
Which actually makes the whole thing funnier.

“Have a post for a very particular type of nerd coming up. Stay tuned.” — Philip Bump, WaPo.
