The Washington Post

Briefly: Zooey Deschanel, John Roberts, David Petraeus, Carly Rae Jepsen

Brief news from here and there:

Deschanel (Bret Harper / AP)

“Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!”

— Actress Zooey Deschanel on Twitter, after catching wind of the Texas Fox affiliate whose closed captioning system transposed her name with that of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. (Of the marathon bombing suspect, an unidentified captionist typed, “He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.”) (People)

— Officials at Lewis & Clark are now regretting that they pressured the college paper not to publish a story about Chief Justice John Roberts’s recent visit, reports Robert Barnes. Seems that Roberts didn’t even have any objection to news coverage of his public event (though sometimes the justices do, ahem, Sonia Sotomayor?).

— Now you, too, can get a chance to work out with David Petraeus! A 5K with the former CIA director is among the offerings in a charity auction, reports In the Loop. But careful: You remember how it worked out with him and one of his other workout partners. . .

— Showbiz luminaries at a Clinton Foundation fundraiser here in Washington next week will include Carly Rae Jepsen and that guy from that show you’re probably not watching. (The Hill)
