10599247_10100895257624556_14563123357480063_nIn the September Style Setter issue of Washingtonian magazine, CNN “Crossfire” co-host S.E. Cupp is recognized for and shares her on and off camera style.

The Conservative political commentator dons an Alice and Olivia sequin dress, and is pregnant with a baby boy, due in December.

Magazine Cover of the Week: TIME’s ‘The Tragedy of Ferguson’

ferguson-coverIt’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw but didn’t have time to actually read this week.

This week, we propose the latest issue of TIME magazine, and it’s cover story “The Tragedy of Ferguson.” The piece explores the events leading up to the shooting death of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson on August 9 and the more than 10 days and nights of protests and tense interactions with law enforcement taking place in the St. Louis suburb.

“Ferguson is no longer just the name of a township. It has become a stern lesson in the value of public trust—the city learned too late that the well was dry—and a painfully familiar one,” writes TIME’s David Von Drehle and
 Alex Altman. ”When the shots rang out on Aug. 9, the usual figures assumed the customary positions. Al Sharpton? Check. Cable-news anchors? Check. Activists in Guy Fawkes masks? Check. The flames, the clouds of tear gas, the righteous anger of the protesters: What was live and what was videotape? The dead youth. The ruined cop. The clashing accounts of a few lethal moments. We’ve been here before—and failed to learn the lessons.”

Magazine Cover of the Week: Wired with Edward Snowden

originalIt’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw but didn’t have time to actually read.

This week, we suggest the latest issue of Wired magazine. Its cover sure to grab attention, shows Edward Snowden holding an American flag with the accompanying cover story “Edward Snowden: The Untold Story.”

In the opening, editor Scott Dadich writes, ”The message arrives on my ‘clean machine,’ a MacBook Air loaded only with a sophisticated encryption package. ‘Change in plans,’ my contact says. ‘Be in the lobby of the Hotel ______ by 1 pm. Bring a book and wait for ES to find you’.”

An interview nine months in the making that lasted three days over several weeks, Dadich continues, “But when Snowden finally agrees to discuss his personal life, the portrait that emerges is not one of a wild-eyed firebrand but of a solemn, sincere idealist who—step by step over a period of years—grew disillusioned with his country and government.”

Magazine Cover of the Week: NYTimes Mag’s Explores the ‘Major Threat’

10cover_type-blog480-2It’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw but didn’t have time to actually read.

This week we bring you The New York Times Magazine which asks “Has the ‘Libertarian Moment’ Finally Arrived?”

“Libertarians, who long have relished their role as acerbic sideline critics of American political theater, now find themselves and their movement thrust into the middle of it,” writes Robert Draper in this week’s cover story. “For decades their ideas have had serious backing financially (most prominently by the Koch brothers, one of whom, David H., ran as vice president on the 1980 Libertarian Party ticket), intellectually (by way of policy shops like the Cato Institute and C.E.I.) and in the media (through platforms like Reason and, as of last year, “The Independents”). But today, for perhaps the first time, the libertarian movement appears to have genuine political momentum on its side.” Read more

Michelle Obama Pens Letter to American Girls on Value of Education

Michelle_Obama_Beautiful_051809_mIn an open letter for Seventeen magazine, First Lady Michelle Obama tells American girls: “you can do better – for yourself, your family and your country.”

“I know that your school might not be as good as it should be, or you might be facing challenges in your family that make it hard for you to focus in class,” writes Obama. “But if girls across the globe can walk hours each day from their villages to attend school, or work two or three jobs to pay their school fees, or even risk their lives to attend school, then I know you can overcome any obstacles you face.”

Dear Politicos — We’re delighted to announce that Eva Rodriguez will be joining the Magazine as our senior editor. Eva comes to us from the Washington Post, where she’s spent the last seven years wearing many hats from politics editor and deputy at the Style section to editorial board member.

She also just loves to work with writers. Eva is mother of two college-sophomore twins and lives in Takoma Park with her partner Debra, and we can’t wait to welcome her in mid-August.

National Journal ‘Women in Washington’ Issue Leads with Piece by NPR’s Michel Martin

NJCover07_26_14Friday we gave you the Magazine Cover of the Week, a look at NBC4′s Jim Vance and Doreen Gentzler 25 year run as evening news anchors in the Washington Post Magazine, and we’re back to highlight National Journal’s “Women in Washington” issue.

In it, NPR’s Michel Martin penned the piece “What I’ve Left Unsaid: On Balancing Career and Family as a Woman of Color.”

On how the media portrays women of color, the NPR host of “Tell Me More” – set to fold August 1 – said, “It isn’t just the entertainment industry that does a poor job of depicting women of color and their full range of experiences; journalists should take some responsibility for this as well. One former TV boss of mine used to talk about getting a ‘white guy in a suit.’ The thinking was, if you wanted to show that whatever you were reporting on was a universal issue, you needed to go find a ‘white guy in a suit,’ either as the subject of the story or even to tell the story.”

The July 26 issue also features ”Go Ahead, Ruffle Some Feathers“ by former DC public school chancellor Michelle Rhee, ”Working Mother, Washington Powerhouse? Good Luck“ by Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, and ”How I Learned to Love My Firstness“ by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

Magazine Cover of the Week: WaPo Mag with NBC4′s Jim Vance and Doreen Gentzler

WPMag072714It’s Friday, therefore almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw this week but didn’t have time to actually read.

This Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine cover story explores the quarter century run of NBC4 anchors Jim Vance and Doreen Gentzler.

For 25 years, Vance and Gentzler have together, anchored NBC4 nightly news broadcasts.

“For most of the past quarter-century in Washington, people have watched Vance and Gentzler. “Jim and Doreen,” as “News4’s” field reporters ritually address them, regularly win a popularity contest that isn’t much in doubt. The audience for their 6 p.m. newscast during May “sweeps” was 17 percent larger than that of second-place WJLA, anchored by Washington’s other venerable anchor team, Gordon Peterson and Maureen Bunyan. The margin at 11 p.m. was even larger, 41 percent. Gentzler-Vance drew more viewers throughout the Washington area than CNN, Fox News and MSNBC averaged together in prime time.”

For more on Jim & Doreen, check it out, online now, or in the Sunday’s Washington Post.
