In the next edition of The Media Training Bible, I'll add a section about not calling former interns a "slutbag." bit.ly/13lgh5n—

Former Anthony Weiner campaign intern Olivia Nuzzi penned a tell-all that was published today in the New York Daily News, but there really wasn’t that much to tell. With nude photos of Weiner’s wiener widely available on the Internet, how shocking is it really to hear that the mayoral wannabe seemingly thought all his female interns were named “Monica”?
Nuzzi’s article was reportedly enough to set off Weiner’s communications director, Barbara Morgan, who in a phone call with liberal blog Talking Points Memo called Nuzzi a “bitch,” “slutbag” and worse.
“I’m dealing with like stupid fucking interns who make it on to the cover of the Daily News even though they signed NDAs and/or they proceeded to trash me,” Morgan told TPM, referring to a non-disclosure agreement. “And by the way, I tried to fire her, but she begged to come back and I gave her a second chance.”
Morgan went on to suggest Nuzzi would be unable to get a job in New York City’s political scene as a result of her actions.
“Fucking slutbag. Nice fucking glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again,” said Morgan.
We’d expected better from Team Weiner — no, seriously, we did. We knew the guy lacked judgment, but what kind of campaign staff did he manage to put together?
Did Anthony Weiner hire the deranged sorority girl as press spokeswoman?—

I have a perfectly lovely bike ride home and return to "slutbag"?—

I'm really glad my kids are too young to hear about any if this. You folks in politics — you know who you are — CLEAN IT UP!! From, a Dad—

Time for some damage control? The Weiner campaign staff must be getting really good at that.
Looks like Barbara Morgan's emailing a whole bunch of reporters to say she thought she was off-record.—

And your boss thought those crotch photos were “private,” too.
