Ann Coulter and Bob Guccione Jr. Engage in Some Point-Counterpoint

Unbeige - Mon, 07/13/2015 - 19:50

We thoroughly enjoyed Lloyd Grove‘s 30th anniversary look back at Spin magazine. The mid-to-late 1980s were a time when print magazines mattered a great deal more and Ike Turner had a lot to do with Spin gaining some traction.

Later on in The Daily Beast piece, the topic of an ex-girlfriend comes up:

In the late 1990s, Guccione even had a serious relationship with conservative firebrand Ann Coulter.

\"It was shtick when I knew her,\" he says of his ex-girlfriend’s penchant for provoking liberals with outrageous remarks. \"She became infatuated with her exploding celebrity, and really got caught up in that Republican heroine thing, and forgot that it was shtick.\"

To which Coulter retorts: \"Guccione’s greatest achievements were creating Spin magazine in the ’80s and getting me to date him briefly in the ’90s. I see he’s still living off those aging laurels.\"

Ha ha. For Coulter, evidently, love means never having to say you’re shtick-y.

SI Publishes 25 Covers for Women’s Soccer Team

Unbeige - Mon, 07/13/2015 - 16:55

The celebration of the triumphant US women’s soccer team continues. According to Ad Age, Sports Illustrated is running 25 different covers to honor the World Cup-winning team. That’s incredible.

That’s one cover for every single player, one for coach Jill Ellis, and one featuring the entire team for subscribers.

“We could go two ways: a team shot, which seemed a little conventional here or something different and fresh: honoring not just one or two players, but all 23 of them with their own cover,” wrote SI editor Chris Stone, in an email to Ad Age. “Each player and coach Ellis deserves her own cover, that’s what we settled on.”

Below are some of the covers.

Bloomberg Continues To Mess With Staff

Unbeige - Mon, 07/13/2015 - 15:20

Ever since Michael Bloomberg returned to Bloomberg LP, things have been a mess. The latest sign of the chaos within the company was Bloomberg firing digital editor Joshua Topolsky, essentially because he built an ugly website.

A new report from The New York Times shed some additional light on the Bloomberg situation. The takeaway is that Bloomberg enjoys messing with things and isn’t even sure if the media divison of Bloomberg is worth keeping around.

“On some days, the people said, he [Bloomberg] seems bullish about the media company,” reported the Times. “On others, he seems to see it as a threat to the terminal business, to be managed accordingly.”

The environment has become so odd that Bloomberg even told TV staffers to wave their hands more.

“He asked one presenter for more on-air arm movement. He asked another to gesticulate with a pen. And he has personally overseen the graphics shown on screen, which now resemble those seen on the terminal.”

Unfortunately for staffers, this seems to be the new normal. When you work at Bloomberg, expect plenty of Bloomberg.

WSJ Names Business Editor

Unbeige - Mon, 07/13/2015 - 15:10

Wall Street Journal veteran Jason Anders has been named business editor of the paper. Anders had served as deputy editor, page one, since 2011. He joined the Journal in 1998.

“The move to the corporate desk is a return of sorts for Jason,” wrote Journal editor Gerard Baker, in a memo to staffers. “He was instrumental in building the desk when the print and online newsrooms merged in 2008 and worked to hone our real-time approach. His digital experience with the Journal dates back almost to the dawn of the digital age.”

Anders is succeeding Dennis Berman, who was moved to financial editor late last month.

Time Inc. Sweetens Its Alabama Plans

Unbeige - Mon, 07/13/2015 - 12:00

CookingLightTimeIncWhen Time Inc. sold a 28-acre Birmingham, Al. campus to Samford University last year, the deal included a clause allowing the company to lease back one of three buildings and maintain its Southern Progress Corporation division. However, per New York Times food correspondent Kim Severson, there’s now an additional layer.

Time Inc. is building 28 test kitchens, a dozen photography studios and a dining room, with plans to open that end up at the beginning of 2016. The kitchens will be used for all Time Inc. publications, not just those that fall under the Southern Progress umbrella (Cooking Light, Southern Living, Coastal Living, Health, Sunset). From Severson’s piece:

In addition to editorial content, the studio will hold chef demonstrations, private dinners and events for loyal readers. The company will also use it to produce native advertising, which are ads that resemble news articles, and live events with advertisers.

For the report, Severson got some perspective from former NYT food colleague Amanda Hesser, who now runs website Food52. She writes that Time Inc. will still maintain several test kitchens in New York.

Stay Thirsty Talks to an NYPD Legend

Unbeige - Mon, 07/13/2015 - 11:00

The Summer issue of Stay Thirsty Magazine is simply spectacular. From investigative journalist Gerald Posner’s detailing of his hunt for Josef Mengele’s Auschwitz papers to sportswriter Joe Posnanski peeling away the layers of a new book about Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus, it’s grand subject matter drawn down to an intimate scale.

StayThirstyNav

For New Yorkers, the piece de resistance is Steven Jay Griffel’s conversation with former NYPD detective Ralph Friedman. Among Friedman’s many celebrated exploits is the fact that between 1970 and 1984, he made more than 100 off-duty arrests. Here he is talking about how he was able to rack up that incredible number:

\"The rush had to be fed. I was always aware of my surroundings and always spotting someone with a gun… be it on duty or off duty. I made arrests in the gyms when working out… I went to Yankee Stadium with my brother with two girls and we made a robbery arrest while leaving the stadium…”

“One night I was riding my Harley from Manhattan to Queens with a girl and we pulled over on East River Drive and we were making out on one of benches facing the water… and while were making out I notice three guys nearby and they’re watching and approaching. I knew they were up to no good. I told the girl, “If you see me go for my gun, just drop to the ground.”

Doctors didn’t think Friedman would ever walk again after he was T-boned in a car accident by an unmarked police car. But he proved them wrong.

Also in the Summer issue – Jay Fox‘s look at iconic NYC dive bar Subway Inn.
