Keeping Up With Chuck Todd: Columbia Journalism Review

The moment is what Chuck Todd calls a "pause" in his workday--a rare sliver of respite in a 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. day that sees Todd shoot spots for Today and Morning Joe, write or edit ten posts for MSNBC's First Read blog, pitch stories for the Nightly News--reporting them if they go ahead--and host his own daily cable show, The Daily Rundown. Always, he's stopping at a computer or unlocking his BlackBerry to Tweet his thoughts, read a blog, check his messages ("I subscribe to every e-mail alert known to man"), or watch a new campaign commercial.
