Peabody Awards Establish East Coast Board of Directors
The organization that administers the Peabody Awards has established an East Coast board of directors as it looks to raise its profile in the broader media landscape.

The 18 board members include Katie Couric, Vice Media CEO Nancy Dubuc, PBS president-ceo Paula Kerger of PBS and MTV Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins. The board of directors will be tasked with expanding the Peabody Awards’ media visibility with nonprofits, policy makers, and the public.

“This new board serves as a complement to our existing West Coast board and brings the totality of what we do into focus,” said Peabody executive director Jeffrey Jones. “Their collective experience in journalism, documentary filmmaking, radio and podcasting, nonprofit management, and issue-conscious work reflects the diverse constituencies we partner with and promote. We welcome their participation, and appreciate the board’s

Twitter Thinks Rudy Giuliani Has Lost His Mind
Donald Trump supporter Rudy Giuliani has openly accused Hillary Clinton of having health issues and embarked on a number of pro-Trump tirades, prompting many people to mock the former New York City mayor on Twitter. Former Time Editor-in-Chief John Huey tweeted, “Rudy giuliani, former Time person of the year (deservedly in my biased opinion) has devolved into Uncle Junior. Sad.” Huey was referencing Junior Soprano, the doddering crime boss from HBO’s “The Sopranos.” Giuliani recently feuded with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, pointed to online videos as evidence that Clinton has a mystery illness and even appeared to forget about the attacks of Sept.

Erin Burnett will take over CNN’s 7pm spot

HollywoodNews.com: Erin Burnett is about to take over CNN’s 7pm spot, and everyone is happy about it. On Tuesday night, the top brass from CNN tossed Erin quite a lovely pre-debut gala at Robert restaurant on Columbus Circle that was so packed with important peeps that it was almost frightening. My favorite moment: talking to Daily News publisher Mort Zuckerman and journalist Judith Miller, when all of a sudden a man arrived bringing Zuckerman a glass of liquid refreshment from the bar. It was none other than Jp Morgan chief Jamie Dimon, who’d volunteered to snake through the packed room and return with beverages. How incredibly helpful!

And then Time Magazine’s John Huey and CNN’s Greg D’Alba were chatting, while Anderson Cooper, Erin Moriarty, ABC News’s Bill Blakemore, and Dan Abrams were all milling about. CNN was represented by chiefs Ken Jautz and Mark Whitaker,

Graydon Carter and Michael Lewis: The Unabridged Conversation About the Financial Collapse

Recently Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter and V.F. contributing editor Michael Lewis sat together onstage in front of an intimate crowd at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and discussed Lewis’s new book, The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, which tackles the question of what caused the U.S. economy to tank. (It was excerpted in the April issue.) Among those who attended the event were writers Tom Wolfe and Gay Talese, New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly, and Time Inc.’s John Huey. Now you too can hear the entire conversation between Carter and Lewis—just click here. But be careful visiting that link. You will probably get sucked into Lewis’s hour-long talk, just as the House Republican book group became engrossed in a lecture Lewis gave about the financial collapse. “I was supposed to be there for an hour,” says Lewis in the clip above,

Graydon Carter and Michael Lewis Discuss the Financial Collapse (and Brad Pitt)

Hindsight is 20-20 when you are in the bust of a boom, and last week at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter interviewed contributing editor Michael Lewis about what insight could be gleaned from the financial markets’ meltdown. Lewis, whose April 2010 V.F. piece “Betting on the Blind Side” was excerpted from Lewis’s new character-driven book The Big Short, explained in layman’s terms—finally!—how the U.S. economy was run into the ground, who is to blame, and if the Obama administration has the willpower and resources to make changes to the system. “Compared to health-care reform, this is a breeze,” Lewis said to a crowd that included writers Tom Wolfe and Gay Talese, New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly, and Time Inc.’s John Huey. In fact, reforming the financial system might even be easier than, say, getting

Vanity Fair contributing editor Michael Lewis sat onstage last night at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City, and discussed, as moderator and V.F. editor Graydon Carter put it, “what the hell happened to the financial markets during the periods from 2007 to 2008.” Among those who turned up to hear Lewis and Carter’s hour-long conversation were writers Tom Wolfe and Gay Talese, New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly, and Time Inc.’s John Huey. Topics covered included Goldman Sachs’s role in the financial collapse, whistle-blowers who tried to go to the S.E.C. but were ignored, and what Lewis would do if he were God and could revamp the country’s financial system.
