On The Menu: Politico’s Calderone Talks About Terrorism Coverage

mmm_2-3.gifToday, Politico.com staff writer Michael Calderone joined hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu to discuss the media’s recent coverage of terrorism.

Calderone discussed his coverage through Christmas of the attempted terrorism attack in Detroit and his blog post yesterday about The New York Times Magazine‘s decision to print its recent story on terrorism online two weeks before its scheduled print date.

“This is actually the longest stretch of time that the paper has ever published a magazine story online that’s going to end up in print. It’s still not going to be in the print edition for two more weeks,” he explained. “It shows something about how the Times thought that there was such an urgency to this story. And it also raises questions about the newspaper industry and whether you can sit on great material for a couple weeks or do you have to get it online as fast as possible.”

Also discussed: political memoirs to watch out for in 2010, including Karl Rove‘s upcoming book and what Calderone will be covering during the coming year.
