“The First Triple Full Ginsburg”

May 3, 2009

If you are a news junkie, and recall some recent media history, you will understand why this trivia is interesting.

Appearing on all five Sunday shows: Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and acting CDC Director Richard Besser. The administration insisted that all three go as a package, and flu was so hot that the shows went for it.

“FULL GINSBURG” – noun – An appearance by a single newsmaker on all five Sunday shows, a rare but not-unheard-of feat named for the first to complete such a circuit, William H. Ginsburg, attorney to Monica Lewinsky, who stuck his landing on Feb. 1, 1998. Wikipedia notes this is the first full Ginsburg of any sort since CNN’s “State of the Union” launched in January.
