Hipsters Annoyed by Vice

VICE_Logo1Vice — the media organization for hipsters, rich kids who dress like they’re poor, terrible artists and other annoying people — is preparing to move to its new headquarters in Williamsburg. As Ad Age reports, the building used to house music venues Glasslands and Death By Audio. Both are now closing, and that has angered the locals:

During one of Death by Audio’s final shows on Tuesday, Tim Harrington of the band Les Savy Fav took the stage with ‘Suck It Vice’ written across his body

Last week, during a do-it-yourself art show at Death By Audio, someone painted ‘Fuck You Shane’ on a wall, presumably a reference to Shane Smith, Vice‘s co-founder and CEO

NY Times Corrects Article with Fake Kanye Quote

The editors at The New York Times don’t think much of Kanye West. If they did, they’d probably be skeptical of a quote in which he said his butt was superior to Kim Kardashian’s. That’s a bit much, even for Kanye. Instead, the editors ran an article with such a quote, despite it being pulled from satirical site The Daily Currant:

At least the editors have now learned two lessons: 1) The Daily Currant is a fake news site and 2) No one has a better butt than Kim Kardashian.

NY Post Handles Obama’s Speech Well

NY_NYP

As you can see, The New York Post handled President Obama’s immigration speech quite well. We especially like how they provided an accurate summary of Obama’s powerful address right on the front. The Lady of Liberty photoshop job is a nice touch as well.

Jeff Fager Stepping Down as Chairman of CBS News, Returns Full Time to 60 Minutes (TVNewser)
Jeff Fager is leaving his role as chairman of CBS News and turning his “full attention” to 60 Minutes. FishbowlDC Fager served as CBS News’ chairman for four years, and had worked as the executive producer of 60 Minutes for seven years before that. THR / The Live Feed Fager has also extended his current contract as executive producer through 2019. As for a replacement, president David Rhodes now assumes sole leadership of CBS News. Fager assumed the role of chairman at a pivotal time for CBS, on the eve of Katie Couric’s exit from the CBS Evening News. June of 2011 saw current anchor, and longtime 60 Minutes correspondent, Scott Pelley, assume the role of lead anchor for the nightly news telecast. NYT CBS cast the moves as an orderly transition that was set in motion four years ago when Leslie Moonves, the CBS chief executive, asked Fager to take over supervision of the news division while remaining as executive producer of 60 Minutes. In his own memo, Fager said of Rhodes, “I hired him almost four years ago with this moment in mind, and he has exceeded all expectations.” Capital New York Fager’s dual roles as chairman of CBS News and E.P. of 60 Minutes did lead to some controversy. Last year, a flawed report about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya led to an internal investigation and the suspension of Lara Logan, who has since returned to the network.
