New York Times Staffs Up Australia Bureau

Tue, 01/24/2017 - 20:45

AustraliaCaveWilliamsThis quickly puts Damien Cave’s career with The New York Times in perspective. He was, back in 2006, the paper’s very first political blogger, covering Cory Booker’s campaign for mayor of Newark.

Cave is relocating to Sydney to open the Times’ Australia bureau in March. He will be joining existing contributor Michelle Innis and will be joined by Jacqueline Williams, previously with the paper’s investigative unit. From the memo by international editor Michael Slackman, deputy international editor Jodi Rudoren and Asia editor Phil Pan:

Damien, a former correspondent in Mexico City and Miami who has been a leader in redefining national coverage, will lead the Australia effort, building a small staff and stable of freelancers. He is a digital innovator and creative team-builder who played a critical role in the successful launch of the Race/Related newsletter, one of our most dynamic and groundbreaking initiatives.

Marc Lacey says Damien sends frequent late-night emails with his many new ideas so “it appears that he does some of his most creative thinking in his dreams.”

“His journalistic instincts are refined,” Marc continues. “He is as collaborative as they come. And he cares passionately about the many issues associated with race.”

Williams, recruited from a Columbia University journalism class by Walt Bogdanich, receives high praise as well. Bogdanich deems her “the most delightful, responsible young reporter” he’s ever worked with. Read the full memo here.

Ozy Media Raises Another $10 Million

Tue, 01/24/2017 - 19:30, a content operation based in Mountain View, Calif., will soon celebrate its fourth anniversary. Launched by Emmy Award-winning journalist Carlos Watson and Samir Rao, it had Silicon Valley backing then. And it has added more now.

The company has banked a $10 million infusion of new funding led by GSV Capital. From today’s announcement:

This latest round brings the company’s total amount raised to $35 million with previous funders including Axel Springer, Emerson Collective and some of Silicon Valley’s top angel investors.

This significant investment in Ozy’s growth comes on the heels of the company’s exceptional performance in 2016, making a decisive move into television and live events, developing two additional revenue streams and achieving five-times growth.

Helping drive that growth was The Contenders, a political documentary series that aired conjunctively on PBS and BBC leading up to the 2016 U.S. election, as well as the inaugural Ozy Fusion Fest, held in Central Park. Participants in the event included Malcolm Gladwell, and Senator Cory Booker.

Bon Appétit Cooks Up New Food Vertical

Tue, 01/24/2017 - 18:00

One intriguing aspect of Bon Appétit’s brand new portal Healthyish is the fact that it comes with its very own eating instrument. Tomorrow through Feb. 1, a special Bon Appetit Healthyish Bowl will be available for pick-up at Sweetgreen locations by those who ordered it online.

Another bonus is the article “Samantha Bee Tells Us What Trump Wants for Dinner.” The titular answer comes at the very end of her Q&A with David Walters:

“Trump is a fast food guy; he likes McDonald’s. He likes the uniformity of it, and the bleachiness of it. He feels like it’s clean. He likes to have the same experience wherever he goes. If I were attending one of his State dinners—though I doubt that I would get invited—I’d probably have to bring one of my granola bars. Just in case.”

The launch of Healthyish is being bracketed by an in-kind February issue of Bon Appétit dedicated to that concept of good health through good food. Site editor Amanda Shapiro explains that the website name comes from a term that evolved internally at the magazine, used to describe how most staffers try to eat.

Bon Appétit plans to launch several more stand-alone brands like this in the third quarter of 2017. The debut-phase sponsors for Healthyish are Arla Foods, Michelob ULTRA, Purely Fancy Feast, Trop50 and Whole Foods.

New Jersey Media Group Buries the Lede

Tue, 01/24/2017 - 17:00

At the top of this particular Jan. 23 news article on the website of New Jersey daily newspaper The Record, some of the terminology includes “restructuring,” “major strategic reorganization” and “highly transformative time.” Crowned by a deceptively generic headline.


It is not until the sixth paragraph that the human toll of actions by parent company New Jersey Media Group, publisher of The Record, is specifically detailed:

By week’s end, 141 employees are to receive notices required by New Jersey and federal law when significant layoffs are planned by private employers.

Gannett acquired New Jersey Media Group from the Borg family last summer. In the comments, a dozen and a half readers at press time are voicing their great displeasure with changes recently made to the print and digital editions of The Record. Another objects to the way the layoffs are being spun:

Jason Towlen: How will slashing journalist jobs help “meet the growing digital demands of readers”? Sounds like typical counterintuitive Gannett-speak to me. Shame on you, Bob Dickey, for destroying yet another NJ paper.

Politico has the internal memo circulated by New Jersey Media Group president and publisher Nancy Meyer. Read it here.

Mel Gibson Clicks Back Up to the Top of Hollywood’s Roller Coaster

Tue, 01/24/2017 - 15:00

For the film year 1995, Mel Gibson was deemed by members of the Academy to be the Best Director, for Bravehart. A decade later, TMZ had him pegged as the town’s leading pariah. And now, for the year 2016, Gibson has nabbed his second Best Director nomination, for Hacksaw Ridge. On the heels of welcoming his ninth child.

HATING the fact that Mel Gibson got a nomination and that we have to see his awful mug for the next month. #OscarNoms

— Melissa Silverstein (@melsil) January 24, 2017

The selection of Gibson as a Best Director nominee is easily the most controversial aspect of this year’s Oscar nominations, revealed this morning via fuzzy-font livestream. The tweet above is representative of the majority first wave of reaction among female journalists.

Gibson stands alongside Woody Allen, Roman Polanski and others whose real-world transgressions have been relegated to the background at the Oscars in favor of finely focused artistic accomplishments. Let the debate continue!

Margaret Sullivan Points to David Carr

Mon, 01/23/2017 - 23:00

“Mmm, no.” That’s how Margaret Sullivan greeted Recode poscast host Peter Kafka’s suggestion that her jobs at The New York Times and the Washington Post are similar.

From the conversation:

“I told him [Washington Post editor Marty Baron] that I thought that David Carr at The New York Times had done a great job. He of course agreed, as every sentient being does, and said that I would try to … I don’t think I can be David Carr but I would sort of model what I was doing on that, which means taking a kind of a getting up and looking at it from a little bit higher and broader perspective.”

The anniversary of Carr’s death is upcoming (Feb. 12). Sullivan and Kafka talk a lot about covering President Trump, which of course is a topic Carr would have run wild with. Carr’s legacy also continues at the paper in the form of talented namesake fellows Amanda Hess, John Herman and Greg Howard. Their terms will run through the beginning of 2017.

Terry Anderson’s Daughter Finds Personal Peace

Mon, 01/23/2017 - 21:00

HostagesDaughterCoverReleased last fall, The Hostage’s Daughter is all about Brooklyn-based journalist Sulome Anderson’s attempts to pick up the pieces of a puzzle anchored to her father’s kidnapping. Terry Anderson, then AP’s chief Middle East correspondent, was famously grabbed by Shiite abductors in Beirut in 1985 and held captive until 1991.

Check out fellow AP reporter Larry Neumeister’s great lede:

She tried drugs. She tried arguing. She tried writing a book. After a quarter century, the daughter of the longest-held American hostage during Lebanon’s civil war says she’s found her father’s love. And it took coming face-to-face with one of his captors to do it.

The AP story has a cluster of great photos as well. Daughter Anderson met Terry for the first time at age six. Neumeister also spoke to dad, from the latter’s home in Orange, Va. A crisp, thought-provoking piece.

From This American Life to Sundance

Mon, 01/23/2017 - 17:00

World premiering tonight at the Sundance Film Festival, Crown Heights reconstructs the harrowing true story of Colin Warner, whose wrongful conviction for a murder in the Brooklyn neighborhood becomes the lifelong cause of friend Carl King. The drama, written and directed by Matt Ruskin, stars Lakeith Stanfield in the lead role.

As Ruskin tells Filmmaker magazine, it all started with a radio broadcast:

“After hearing Colin and Carl’s piece on This American Life, I was really blown away by them. I couldn’t get their voices out of my head. For Colin to emerge from two decades of incarceration with his humanity and his dignity intact, it’s extraordinary. And for Carl King to have such a sense of injustice that he would never give up on his friend, even after 20 years, it really stuck with me.”

Ruskin says that among the inspirations for the film’s look were Bruce Davidson’s book Subway, which he calls his “favorite time capsule of 1980s New York.” Listen to the original 2005 This American Life broadcast here.

Tidal Rides Good-Bad News Wave

Mon, 01/23/2017 - 16:00

Today, the news is good. Per an announcement this morning by Sprint, the telecommunications carrier has acquired a 33% stake in Jay Z‘s music streaming platform Tidal. Sprint will offer that content to its users as well as present special incentives at the other end to Tidal subscribers. As part of the deal, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure will join Tidal’s Board of Directors:

“Jay saw not only a business need, but a cultural one, and put his heart and grit into building TIDAL into a world-class music streaming platform that is unrivaled in quality and content,” said Claure. “The passion and dedication that these artist-owners bring to fans will enable Sprint to offer new and existing customers access to exclusive content and entertainment experiences in a way no other service can.”

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of a less flattering investigation by Norwegian publication Dagens Naeringsliv. As picked up and translated by Digital Music News, the investigative piece suggests Tidal last year was guilty of falsely inflating its subscriber ranks:

‘On March 30 of last year, Tidal issued a press release stating that the company had reached ‘three million members,’ the Dagens Naeringsliv report states. ‘The news story reported worldwide was that Tidal had three million paying subscribers. Tidal also specified to The Verge that this figure did not include trial subscribers. This was the last time Tidal reported a total number of subscribers to the public.”

The only problem with that? ‘In April 2016, one month after the press release issued by the company claiming three million members, Tidal made payments to the record labels for around 850,000 subscribers. The figure reported internally by Tidal in April is 1.2 million subscribers.’

Runner’s World Cover Reverberates in Nebraska, Ohio

Mon, 01/23/2017 - 15:00

When Nebraska daily newspaper the Hastings Tribune caught up with New York personal trainer and January/February Runner’s World cover girl Amanda Butler, she was in Los Angeles, having just shot several commercial videos for Kate Hudson’s clothing company Fabletics. The 31-year-old Butler attended St. Cecilia High School in Hastings before moving on to university studies in Oklahoma.

When one alumna discovers another on the cover of @runnersworld! @OKCU

— OCU Alumni & Friends (@OKCUAlumni) December 29, 2016

Butler has previously appeared inside the pages of Runner’s World as well as Shape, Self and Fitness magazines. But her only previous cover is a quarterly Women’s Health workout supplement. From the Hastings Tribune piece by Tony Herman:

“Runner’s World is a really great magazine,” Butler says. “They pick real people. It’s not just a celebrity on the cover every time. They are an awesome team to work with. I think they put out a very real and reliable product. I know a lot of people subscribe to it and a lot of runners love it for the content they provide. I don’t think they fluff things. I think they’re pretty real.”

After studying dance at OCU, Butler entertained on Royal Caribbean cruise ships before settling in New York. She currently teaches at New York gym The Fhitting Room.

El Chapo: Master of the Fake Escape?

Sat, 01/21/2017 - 12:00

Esquire this week nabbed a 2016 Ellie nomination in the Columns and Commentary category. Cited were a trio of pieces by Dwight Garner published in the September, November and December/January 2017 issues.

Equally worthy from that publication would have been Don Winslow’s masterful summer feature “El Chapo and the Secret History of Heroin.” With the extradition of El Chapo (a.k.a. Joaquín Guzmán Loera ) to the United States finally coming about this week, we couldn’t help but think back to Winslow’s take on the Mexican drug lord’s 2001 and 2015 prison escapes.


The author calls the escapes “catnip for the media” and, essentially, as reported and disseminated, fake news:

For the record, Guzmán did not [in 2015] go out that tunnel on a motorcycle. Steve McQueen escapes on motorcycles. My money says that Guzmán didn’t go into that tunnel at all; anyone who can afford to pay $50 million in bribes and finance the excavation of a mile-long tunnel can also afford not to use it.

Gentle reader, the man is worth $1 billion. He was thinking about buying the Chelsea Football Club. He went out the front door.

Winslow puts forth a similar dual smoke-screen for Guzman’s earlier 2001 escape. The notion of the drug lord being smuggled out in a laundry cart fed the folklore, but according to the reporter’s sources, it was more like a helicopter off the roof of that particular prison.

The main focus of Winslow’s article is how the gradual legalization of marijuana in the U.S. forced Guzman to find a different anchor drug. His choice, explains Winslow, is a big reason opioid and heroin epidemics are now ravaging all sorts of surprising corners of the

Along with Matt Taibbi’s rollicking coverage of Donald Trump for Rolling Stone, which is separately nominated in the ASME-Ellies Columns and Commentary category, this Esquire article was one of favorite pieces of magazine reporting done in 2016. Winslow has an equally provocative theory about El Chapo’s 2014 recapture. For that, you will need to read the article.

New York Times CRO Underlines ‘Niche Ads Business’

Sat, 01/21/2017 - 11:00

At this week’s AdExchanger 2017 Industry Preview event in New York, one panel discussion featured Rob Norman, global chief digital officer for WPP’s GroupM, Meredith Kopit Levien, executive vice president and CRO of The New York Times, and Dave Morris, CRO for CBS Interactive. At one point, Kopit Levien framed the evolution of the newspaper legacy-business-model in a manner that aligned New York with Detroit.

The assembly line here is pumping out content, not cars. But in both cases, there is a U.S. “Big Three” looming large:

“Up until now, we’ve been a niche consumer business with a $1 billion-plus newspaper ad business. Now we’re on a path to becoming a very big consumer business and a niche ad business. If you’re a content company and you’re not Facebook, Google or Snapchat, you’re in the niche ads business.”

Kopit Levien also talked at one point about Readerscope, a tool developed by The New York Times to help direct marketers identify the best narrative topics for them to pursue on Watch the full conversation below.

A Curious Donald Trump Correction

Fri, 01/20/2017 - 21:30

We caught up today to a correction issued on Martin Luther King Jr. Day by Wisconsin NBC affiliate WEAU Channel 13. What’s curious and most unusual is that the original error is at no point explained.

The incorrect Chyron was shown during the Sunday 10 p.m. newscast for a story co-produced with NBC Newschannel:

As that story was on-air, a graphic created by WEAU 13 News that included the incorrect spelling of President-elect Trump’s last name remained on the screen for about 53 seconds. Our staff recognized the error, and removed it from the broadcast.

The mistake is not a reflection of the station’s views on the incoming president, his associates or his supporters. We apologize for the error and regret that it happened.

Several commenters are wondering, what was the misspelling. Here’s your answer:

Local news blooper. @WEAU13News #AisnotclosetoU. #Trump #POTUS

— Mr_Sconnie (@Mr_Sconnie) January 16, 2017

Call it a schadenfreudian slip. Perhaps even by a female member of the WEAU 13 production staff.

Argentinian Newspaper Cries for America

Fri, 01/20/2017 - 19:45

The Buenos Aires Herald was founded in 1876. Its Twitter slogan is “In Reporting We Trust.” And this week’s print edition, published today, is all about the man who was just inaugurated in Washington D.C.


From the paper’s front-page op-ed:

Take a deep breath, this is really happening. This morning, in Washington D.C., the United States of America, what was once laughed off and thought of as unthinkable by the overwhelming majority of politicians, pundits, journalists and citizens will become reality: Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America.

There are a number of other Trump-related pieces in the paper. Patricio Navia writes about “Calling Trump’s Bluff;” Stephen M. Walt explains why he thinks President Barack Obama’s foreign policy was a failure; and staff writer Santiago Del Carril interviews Inter-American Dialogue president emeritus Peter Hakim, who led that organization from 1993 to 2010. Says Hakim:

“Latin Americans are concerned about U.S. relations, they may have not liked George W. Bush very much but he looks like a sweetheart compared to Trump. Trump seems not to have any kind of binding, connecting tissue between the various [Latin American] issues. There is that lack of logical connection. It just doesn’t quite all come together. Is that a tactic of Trump or simply he doesn’t have that connecting tissue? Is this going to continue when he becomes president? Or are we going to have the general type of leaders we are used to having?”
