HuffPost Responds to Criticisms on Crowd Sourced Ferguson Fellowship

Yesterday, The Huffington Post announced the creation of the Ferguson Fellowship, a partnership with the Beacon Reader to enable a citizen journalist to “monitor the activity of the local and county police forces once the national spotlight dims” and “learn the intricacies of public records requests in an effort to divine the funding sources and uses of military gear in the county.”

Today, HuffPost Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim and HuffPost Ferguson Fellow Mariah Stewart went on HuffPost Live to respond to criticisms. HuffPost tells FishbowlDC that critics of the crowd funded fellowship – The Guardian’s Alex Koppelman (via this tweet), Jim Romenesko (via this post), and AdAge’s Simon Dumenco (via this article) – were invited on as guests by producers, but all declined.

HuffPost Selects Beacon Reader’s Mariah Stewart for Ferguson Fellowship

Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 09.53.14In preparation for the day when out of town reporters return home and those local take on a new beat, The Huffington Post is committed to telling the story of the shooting death of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. for many months to come.

“It’s a question on the minds of nearly every resident, who know the camera crews will eventually fold up their sticks and pack up their vans, the West Florissant McDonald’s will transform from an international media filing center into a trivia question,” wrote Ryan Grim, Washington bureau chief of HuffPost in “The Huffington Post is not Leaving Ferguson.” “But the local police will still be there, along with the structural inequality and racial disparities that sparked the crisis.” Read more

Jefferson Book Party Toasts Arianna Huffington and Thrive

20140515_190857Last night at The Jefferson, Constance Milstein, Gail MacKinnon and Rachel Pearson hosted Arianna Huffington in celebration of her new book, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder.

Huffington wrote Thrive after a fall brought on by exhaustion and a lack of sleep sent her to the hospital.

“The motivation for writing the book was my own burnout, and then looking around and seeing how many millions are burned out. And then, asking the questions that we stop asking after college, ‘What is the good life? What is success?’ And if you think about it, we define success, in search of these two metrics of money and power, and in this town, especially power. And this is like trying to sit on a two legged stool. Sooner or later you fall off. Nothing wrong with these two metrics. It’s just that you need the third leg of the stool.” Read more
