A Curious Donald Trump Correction

Unbeige - 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

Unbeige - 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?”

A Magazine Match Made in Utah Heaven

Unbeige - Fri, 01/20/2017 - 04:30

People tend to forget that the Sundance Film Festival started out in Salt Lake City. Launched in 1978 as the Utah/U.S. Film Festival, the event transitioned to the hills of Park City in the mid-1980s.


A few years later, a Florida couple visited those hills and the rest, per a fun recap by KSL Broadcasting’s Chris Redgrave, turned out to be publishing history:

John and Margaret Shuff came during the Autumn Aloft hot air balloon festival, held during the 80s and early 90s in Park City. They enjoyed themselves so much that, no kidding, only a day and half later they bought a house [in Salt Lake City]. That was in September 1988 and by December they had moved in. This engaging Florida couple was in the publishing business with the well-known Florida magazine, Boca Raton, at the time they moved. Before that, John had spent years as the CFO of Capital Cities ABC in New York City.

Anyway, after they landed at the Salt Lake airport, John noticed we didn’t have a magazine depicting Salt Lake like he thought we should for this market. Today, the inspiration of John’s observation is clearly shown in the readership for Salt Lake Magazine, Utah Style and Design and Utah Bride.

Robert Redford has been on the cover of Salt Lake magazine many times. Above, left-to-right, are the 2016 and 2017 January/February issues (the publication is bi-monthly).

In the current cover story by associate editor Christie Marcy, there’s also a rather unique photo of Mr. Redford. That’s no small feat for a guy who is endlessly snapped, especially this time of year. We’ve embedded it below. Photography is often all about subject-composition and here everything comes together beautifully: angle, framing, mood.

Francis Ford Coppola Winery Rides Into Sundance, Oscars

Unbeige - Thu, 01/19/2017 - 21:30

DirectorsCutCinemaIt all tracks back to 1975. That’s when Francis Ford Coppola and wife Eleanor bought a portion of the Inglenook Estate vineyard in northern California, launching their wine business three years later. Today, the couple’s vintages pay all sorts of great tributes to the industry the filmmaker’s first industry.

For example, the Director’s Cut line of wines (pictured) features a wraparound label that duplicates the look of an old Zoetrope movie camera film strip. The label is sure to be a conversation point if and when decanted at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and 2017 Oscars, for which Francis Ford Coppola Winery is the official wine sponsor.

The winery is one of several third-tier festival sponsors this year (a.k.a. Sustaining Sponsors), alongside Canon U.S.A, IMDb, Oculus and others. Speaking of IMDb, a quick check there reminds that Coppola has been nominated 14 times over the years, winning five. He also collected the Academy’s last Irving G. Thalberg Award, presented for the year 2010.

2017SundanceFilmFestivalPosterAnother one of Coppola’s wine lines is called Sofia, after his daughter of course. That also ties in nicely to the other strand of the filmmaker’s alcohol-purveyor beginnings. Dad’s commercial collaboration with Akira Kurosawa in Japan, for Suntory whiskey, was a spark for Sofia’s 2003 film Lost in Translation.

At the Sundance Film Festival, the Coppola winery has a couple of other notable presences besides those at the bar and dinner table. A short film, Drink in the Moment, will be on a intermittent loop at Miner’s Park Plaza.
And an artist has been commissioned to create an oversized wine cork mural during the Jan. 19-29 event. It’s interactive, so festivalgoers who chose to do so can contribute a cork of their own to the mural, as it grows in the Festival Co-op area.
