    Rejection -- even repeated rejection -- doesn't have to mean defeat. That, it turns out, is the lasting lesson of the Chuck Ross story. You may recognize the name; two Sundays ago, I wrote about J.K. Rowling, the spectacularly successful author of the Harry Potter books, and about how she has published a detective novel under the name Robert Galbraith. In the column, I recalled what a young and frustrated writer -- Chuck Ross -- did in the 1970s. To briefly recap: Ross had written a mystery novel that had been turned down everywhere he sent it. So, as an...

    by Mark Finkelstein March 21, 2006 I will always have a soft spot for NBC reporter Michelle Kosinski. After all, it Michelle's Canoe-Gate stunt, http://newsbusters.org/node/2199, that got my NewsBusters career off to a nice start. Michelle was back on the weather beat on this morning's Today show. And once again she came up with an weather-related allegation that strained credulity. As we know, in MSM-land, all extreme weather events, from the very hot to the very cold, are somehow attributable to global warming. Michelle's topic this morning was the record-breaking cold and heavy snows that have swept the nation's mid-section....

    On Oct. 14, Michelle Kosinski, an intrepid new NBC News correspondent who made her name this summer chasing Natalee Holloway’s ghost through Aruba, found herself up a creek without a paddle in the middle of the Today show. Only, she had a paddle. What she didn’t have was a creek. In what would have been a beautifully choreographed segment, Ms. Kosinski was reporting live about flooding in Wayne, N.J., in a canoe that was floating down a submerged suburban thoroughfare. “Eight days of rain, and some neighborhoods don’t even look like neighborhoods anymore,” she told Today viewers at the top...

    Up the Creek: Out to Embarrass Bush Over Alleged Video Stunt, Today Gets Caught in Stunt of Its Own In a deliciously ironic twist of fate, shortly before airing a segment aimed at embarrassing the Bush administration by suggesting that it had staged a video conversation between the president and soldiers in Iraq, the Today show was caught staging . . . a video stunt. ... Today's timing couldn't have been worse. A preceding segment focused on the incessant rains and ensuing flooding in the northeast. For days now, beautiful, blonde - and one senses highly ambitious - young reporter...

    by Mark Finkelstein October 14, 2005 - 07:10. In a deliciously ironic twist of fate, shortly before airing a segment aimed at embarrassing the Bush administration by suggesting that it had staged a video conversation between the president and soldiers in Iraq, the Today show was caught in staging . . . a video stunt. In the Bush/Iraq segment, Today screened footage indicating that prior to engaging in a video conversation with President Bush, soldiers on the ground in Iraq were given tips by a Department of Defense official. But the only advice that the official was shown as giving...
