Does WSJ Have a Problem Disclosing Conflicts of Interest?

wsj

A letter published by The Wall Street Journal on Saturday drew criticism from Jewish groups and readers for comparing recent protests targeting San Francisco’s wealthiest residents to a series of 1938 riots, instigated by German Nazis, that left dozens dead and kicked off the Holocaust.

And as some began to question why the business paper of record give a platform to such a far-fetched analogy — in a letter that also unexpectedly glorifies serial novelist Danielle Steel as the city’s No. 1 celebrity — even if the writer was a legendary Silicon Valley venture capitalist.

In an italicized tagline beneath the letter, WSJ introduced the author, Thomas Perkins, as founder of the VC firm Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers — which, despite bearing his name, distanced itself on Saturday from the “partner emeritus” profiled on its website.

A quick Google search reveals more relevant biographical details.

Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey Celebrate Women in the World

In her opening remarks on the second day of The DailyBeast/Newsweek Women in the World Summit, former Secretary of State and New York Senator Hillary Clinton called women’s rights the 21st century’s “unfinished business.”

“The world is changing beneath our feet, and it is past time to embrace a 21st-century approach to advancing the rights and opportunities of women and girls,” Clinton said. “Technology, from satellite television to cell phones, from Twitter to Tumbler, is helping to bring abuses out of the shadows and into the center of global consciousness.”

Clinton’s remarks framed the morning session of panel discussions at the Summit. Clinton’s daughter Chelsea, a board member at The Clinton Foundation and a special correspondent for NBC News, was the morning’s first moderator, steering a panel about women’s roles in science, math and computer programming. The morning’s other moderators included ABC News anchor Cynthia McFadden, former CNN anchor Campbell Brown and CBS News anchor Norah O’Donnell.

The Daily Beast/Newsweek Brings Aboard Kathy O’Hearn As VP

Our friends over at WebNewser report that Kathy O’Hearn is ditching TV news for the VP role at the newly formed Newsweek Daily Beast company.  O’Hearn most recently worked at CNN where, among other roles, she was executive producer of both Campbell Brown’s and Christiane Amanpour’s shows.

O’Hearn also served as executive producer of This Week before leaving in 2008 to manage ABC’s special event politics coverage.

CNN Searches For Conservative, Liberal Voices To Square Off

cnnlogo.jpgOur colleagues at FishbowlLA have some exclusive news today: CNN is auditioning talent in the hopes of casting one conservative and one liberal host for a new “Crossfire” type of show.

FBLA has some ideas about who the news network might be looking at:

A few on the liberal side were Steve A. Smith of ESPN, Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks, Roland Martin who’s already on Campbell Brown‘s show frequently and Errol Louis a CNN contributor.

On the conservative side were radio personalities Roe Conn from Chicago, Joe Watkins from Philadelphia and Steve Malzberg from New Jersey. Plus frequent Glenn Beck fill-in Joe Pagliarulo from Texas.

Who do you think would be good for the show? Leave suggestions for co-hosts — and show names — in the comments.

FBLA Exclusive: CNN is Auditioning Talent for New Show

According to our CNN source, the “most trusted name in news” is casting for a new Crossfire type of Hannity and Colmes show. Meaning: they’re auditioning liberal personalities and conservative personalities to co-host one show.

Way to really break the mold, CNN.

No word on who or what the show would be replacing or what the name of the show will be (Crossballs is already taken).

A few on the liberal side were Steve A. Smith of ESPN, Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks, Roland Martin who’s already on Campbell Brown‘s show frequently and Errol Louis a CNN contributor.

On the conservative side were radio personalities Roe Conn from Chicago, Joe Watkins from Philadelphia and Steve Malzberg from New Jersey. Plus frequent Glenn Beck fill-in Joe Pagliarulo from Texas.

So we’re guessing they’re looking for two different personalities in two different people to off-set having two in one with Lou Dobbs?

    So! Not surprisingly, now that the election is over, all the behind-the-scenes dirty laundry is being aired. And by dirty laundry we really mean, how Sarah Palin is solely responsible for ruining John McCain‘s bid for the presidency (watch Campbell Brown‘s excellent take/rant on this after the jump). The other day we directed your attention to Newsweek‘s much talked-about post-election story about Palin’s heretofore unreported behavior, and just yesterday Carl Cameron went on Fox News and said “I wish I could have told you back at the time, but all of it was put off-the-record.” Fair enough. But does observing the off-the-record rule excuse the entirely uncritical nature of the reports that came out about Palin for the better part of the two months she was on the ticket? Andrew Sullivan emphatically disagrees:

    But actual reporters were soon finding [Palin's failings] out for themselves – and not even conveying the gist of that to their viewers and readers…They kept taking Palin seriously as a veep candidate when she didn’t come close to even minimal standards for passing a citizenship test. I’m sorry but I think this is a terrible failing, and it is a reason the mainstream media are imploding. They let the rules of the game over-rule their duty to tell the American people the truth as they began to discover it.

    Campbell Brown on Jon Stewart Watchdogging the Media

    Speaking of Campbell Brown she was on Jon Stewart last night talking about how on her CNN show No Bias, No Bull (she joked it was initially named No Bias, No Bullshit) and her attempts to firmly establish herself as representative of the middle-ground between MSNBC and Fox. Also, she’s pregnant again!

    The Press is Officially Negative on John McCain and Sarah Palin

    mccain_palin.jpgIt’s not your imagination. John McCain and Sarah Palin are getting more negative press coverage than their Dem counterparts. A recent study for the Project for Excellence in Journalism found that six out of 10 McCain stories were negative, furthermore Obama had more than twice as many positive stories (36 percent) as McCain — and just half the percentage of negative (29 percent). What’s more Politico has even copped to being part of the problem! The liberal media elite strikes again! But wait, perhaps it’s not actually that simple. Says Politico‘s John F. Harris and Jim VandeHei:

    As it happens, McCain’s campaign is going quite poorly and Obama’s is going well. Imposing artificial balance on this reality would be a bias of its own…Our sincere answer is that of the factors driving coverage of this election — and making it less enjoyable for McCain to read his daily clip file than for Obama — ideological favoritism ranks virtually nil.

    A number of media types have been making the similar points of late. Campbell Brown has defended her controversial questioning of McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds saying “When you have Candidate A saying the sky is blue, and Candidate B saying it’s a cloudy day, I look outside and I see, well, it’s a cloudy day, I should be able to tell my viewers, ‘Candidate A is wrong, Candidate B is right.’ And at a Smith Foundation panel last night Steven Rendall of the media watchdog Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting suggested that the bad press may just be a result of bad behavior on McCain’s part. Of course Obama is not all sunshine and unicorns when it comes to dealing with the press.
