  • Detroit F.P. editor loses mind, writes column calling for Republican legislators to be murdered

    Civility Two years ago, Stephen Henderson won a Pulitzer Prize. I’ll let you decide what you think that says about the state of journalism, especially as you consider what he wrote late last week. Henderson, the editorial page editor of the Detroit Free Press (and a Facebook friend of mine, at least as I type this), has become increasingly hysterical in the past year - seeing racism behind almost every perceived societal ill and ascribing to conservative policymakers not just mistaken thinking but, invariably, an intent to hurt people. But his column of this past Saturday took the cake. A...

    The editor of the New York newspaper that created a furor by publishing the names and addresses of gun-permit owners suddenly is out of a job. According to the Rockland Times, a competitor to the Gannett-owned Rockland County Journal News, editor Caryn McBride is among the casualties of a recent purge at the Journal News. The report said 17 journalists were among a total of 26 staff members at the Journal News who were let go.

    Contrary to statements made by former Free Press editor Drew Johnson and national media reports, Johnson was told on multiple prior occasions not to make material changes to editorials or headlines once they were approved by the editor responsible for the page. On Monday night, Johnson changed the approved headline on his Tuesday editorial from, “Keep your jobs plan to yourself, Mr. President: Your policies have harmed Chattanooga enough already” to “Take your jobs plan and shove it, Mr. President: Your policies have harmed Chattanooga enough.” However, he waited until his editor had left for the day before changing the...

    Media: A Tennessee newspaper fired an editor over a hard-hitting editorial denouncing President Obama's jobs plan on the very day the president came to town to tout it. This has the odor of White House revanchism. ngbfThe Chattanooga Times Free Press insists that its firing of Drew Johnson for the title of his editorial, "Take Your Jobs Plan And Shove It, Mr. President," was unrelated to content, and merely a case of an insubordinate editor changing his headline to a riff on a song by Nashville singer Johnny PayCheck over another headline. Frankly, it's hard to believe. For one thing,...

    Drew Johnson, the editorial page editor of the Chattanooga Times Free Press was fired after 14 months on the job for publishing an editorial with a headline that read: "Take your jobs plan and shove it, Mr. President." The editorial ran Tuesday, the same day Obama visited Chattanooga. The powers-that-be posted a notice Thursday explaining the firing: The headline was inappropriate for this newspaper. It was not the original headline approved for publication, and Johnson violated the normal editing process when he changed the headline. The newspaper’s decision to terminate Johnson had nothing to do with the content of the...

In part, my view was molded by the accidental gunshot death of a person I very much admired. He was the guy who gave me my first newspaper byline, as a matter of fact. We worked together on...

However, if I choose not to buy health insurance, and I have a serious illness or injury, guess who pays when I show up at the emergency room —...

    NEW YORK - Newspaper readers agree with editors on the basics of what makes good journalism, but they are more apt to want looser rules for online conversations, a new study on news credibility has found. Newspapers highly discourage anonymous remarks, for instance, and editors are more likely than readers to want that principle applied to reader comments online, according to the Online Journalism Credibility Study released Tuesday by the Associated Press Managing Editors group and the Donald W.

    They published but edited my letter! I am refering to the New York Daily News. Now, I don't want to be blowing my own horn. I've had my letters to the editor to magazines and newspapers published many times before (including in the NY Daily News). So this is not a new experience for me. But after a long time of not writing to any letters to any editors, there was one case where I couldn't help myself and wrote a response to another persons letter to the editor in the NY Daily News. People have been writing in about...

    NEW YORK – A.M. Rosenthal, a demanding editor who lifted The New York Times from economic doldrums in the 1970s and molded it into a journalistic juggernaut known for distinguished reporting of national and world affairs, died Wednesday at age 84. He died of complications from a stroke he suffered two weeks ago, the Times said. Rosenthal, known as Abe, spent virtually all of his working life at the Times, beginning as a lowly campus stringer in 1943. He rose to police reporter, foreign correspondent, managing editor and finally to the exalted office of executive editor, a post he held...

    MAXWELL-GUNTER AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. (AFPN) -- When Algerian-born Remy Mauduit, editor of the new French edition of the Air and Space Power Journal, sees terrorism and insurgency taking place in Iraq, he recalls a time when he, too, was an insurgent. Life was not good for Algerian citizens in the early 1950s. After French colonization, native Algerians were prisoners in their own country. "We were second-class citizens," Mr. Mauduit said. "The French had all the highest positions, all the land, basically everything. We (Algerians) could never get anywhere, regardless of our education." Tired of the occupation, a group of...

    The American Thinker ^ | 1/20/06 | Thomas Lifson
    The situation is worse at the New York Times than I thought. Bill Keller, executive editor of the Times, sent me an email the other day. At least I think it is an email to me from the Bill Keller who runs Grey Lady’s editorial staff. Actually, it is quite plausible that Mr. Keller might be writing me. My article on the fake photo published on the New York Times website has spread far and wide in the blogosphere, and it picked up talk radio coverage from some of the big national shows. It even broke through just a bit...

    Blairsville — To some in this mountain town, this is a troubling tale of what happens when a rogue journalist arrives from the big city, distorting facts and poisoning goodwill. To others, it is the saga of an outsider exposing corruption and challenging Goliaths within a tightknit rural community. To anyone with access to Google, it's the surreal story of a conspiracy theorist and fringe presidential candidate who once broke a briefly infamous story about Bush family financial links to a Nazi sympathizer — a story that nearly destroyed him. This journalist tried to leave his mental and legal problems...

    IRAN: MORE JOURNALISTS FALL VICTIM TO WAR ON MEDIA Tehran, 19 Oct. (AKI) - Another journalist has fallen victim to the wave of media repression sweeping Iran. Issa Saharkhiz, editor of the monthly Aftab (the Sun) and president of an association of Iranian newspaper editors has been banned from working as a journalist or editor for the next six months. Other casualties of the apparent war on the media include Omid Sheikhian, a well-known Iranian blogger sentenced to a year in prison and two lashes and Jalal Jalalizadeh, editor-in-chief of the magazine Sirvan, who has been summoned to Tehran's court...

    WASHINGTON - The New York Times' Judith Miller belatedly gave prosecutors her notes of a key meeting in the CIA leak probe only after being shown White House records of it, and her boss declared Friday she appeared to have misled the newspaper about her role. In a dramatic e-mail, Executive Editor Bill Keller wrote Times' employees he wished he'd more carefully interviewed Miller and had "missed what should have been significant alarm bells" that she had been the recipient of leaked information about the CIA officer at the heart of the case. "Judy seems to have misled (Times Washington...

    NEW YORK - Shortly after tasting freedom for the first time in nearly three months, New York Times reporter Judith Miller went for a massage and a manicure. She enjoyed a martini, a steak dinner and the fresh air. That was the easy part. The once-jailed reporter's subsequent return to the paper's 43rd Street newsroom, where she was viewed as a polarizing figure, was fraught with anxiety. She found her co-workers "confused and perplexed" about her jail term for protecting a Bush administration source, and about her paper's apparent inability to rein in the Pulitzer Prize- winner, according to a...
