Bloomberg Politics

Bloomberg Politics’ forthcoming show “With All Due Respect” aims to fuse “popular culture, the political world and TV,” according to a teaser trailer released Monday.

The trailer opens with clips of several prominent politicians (Barack Obama, Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton) prefacing statements with the phrase “with all due respect,” accompanied by a voiceover.

“In a world,” intones a stentorian, movie theater-ish voice, “where people say ‘with all due respect’ when that is not at all what they mean, comes a new show that fuses popular culture, the political world and TV.”

Clips from movies and TV shows, news programs and C-Span footage play throughout:

The show, which will be hosted by “Game Change” authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, is set to debut Oct.… Read more

Clash over Abramson’s style may have figured in Politico editor’s resignation

Good morning. Here are 10 media stories.

  1. Rick Berke leaves Politico: The publication’s executive editor resigned Sunday, citing “an acceptance by the three of us that the dynamics were just not there for us to function seamlessly.” The other two people in that “three of us” formulation, John Harris and Jim VandeHei, tell staffers “We have very big plans for expanding POLITICO here and elsewhere and need in place a leadership team that shares our vision, ambitions and full faith.” (HuffPost) | Erik Wemple passes on word of an awkward “Politico University” workshop in May, after Berke’s former boss Jill Abramson was fired: “Berke got a bit off-topic, putting forth his opinion that Abramson was an inept and insensitive manager. Some female staffers objected to that characterization, and the session blew up in awkward polemics about the internal politics of a competing outlet.” (WP) | “Rick Berke does not capitalize “Politico” in his resignation message.

Wiegel, Bazelon leave Slate

Huffington Post | Capital | Slate

Emily Bazelon and Dave Weigel will leave Slate, continuing a shakeup that began after former editor David Plotz stepped down as top editor in July.

Bazelon, a senior editor for Slate since 2005, will be a staff writer for New York Times Magazine, where she has been a contributor, according to a release from The Times.

In a statement, New York Times Magazine editor Jake Silverstein said he was “giddy” about the hire.

Weigel will join Bloomberg’s as-yet unnamed politics vertical, Michael Calderone reports for The Huffington Post.

Wiegel wrote about his departure from Slate, saying that his move was inspired by his appreciation for the team at Bloomberg:

This is still my favorite magazine and I’m only leaving it because Bloomberg’s putting together — I will try to avoid corporate-speak — an ambitious political magazine run by the sort of geniuses who made Bloomberg Businessweek into a great print mag, and New York’s political coverage a daily must-read.
