Gawker has some questions for Jesse B. Watters, the Fox News producer that Bill O'Reilly likes to send out to ambush his enemies. So we're outside his building in Long Island. Right now. (Hi, Jesse!)

Estate jeweler Fred Leighton (who is actually named Murray Mondschein) is 76. Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe is turning 19. Omar Epps is 35. The New Yorker's Hendrik "Rick" Hertzberg is turning 65.

The tinfoil-hat crazies who think that George W. Bush planned 9/11 as a way to enact his monomaniacal plans to appoint himself Emperor For Life of a religious theocracy in which women's uteri are property of the state are gathering in Chicago for the Yearly Kos convention, where they will smoke dope, burn bras, wear beards, and compare the president to Hitler. The New Yorker's Hendrik Hertzberg is there blogging the whole thing. No, it's not just you, the world has gone crazy. [WWD]

Journalists: They're Just Like Us! Except We Don't Give Money To Anyone

MSNBC rakes a little muck today and reveals that reporters have given campaign contributions to political candidates! Just like other American citizens! Even more shocking is the fact that most reporters tend to give to Democrats! Most shocking of all is the revelation that reporters have money to give away! Whether you see this practice as indicative of the media's bias towards the left or as an indication that those at the front lines of the political process have seen enough to know who needs help depends on what side of the ideological line you fall on. One thing's for sure: We kind of love the New Yorker's Hendrik Hertzberg.
