LAT Diggs With Stoopid

Our friends on Franklin Ave. today point out that the LAT is getting all proud of its Digg ratings. So proud, that they’ve forgotten to vet them before showing them off online. To wit, the fifth item down:

Metrolink Frontpage Roundup: Franklin Ave. Has the Goods

2856948434_06d8a48f0d.jpg We were thinking about doing a roundup of how local papers covered the Metrolink crash. But while we were thinking, Franklin Ave. was doing. So rather than reinvent the Photoshop page, here’s a link to our buddies up the road.

Best observation: “The Daily News, however, opts to go with a dull shot of… the train tracks. This picture doesn’t convey any of the tragedy or even make you pay attention. Quite a dull choice. And that headline? ‘Point of No Return’ — really, we gotta go with a cheesy cliche this soon?”

John Edwards: The Story Gets Weirder

2697678100_5bcd916b41_m.jpgEarlier we reported that the National Enquirer is leading the journo pack on a story about an alleged affair by John Edwards.

Well, now Franklin Ave. notes that if that affair actually happened, it happened in front of 30 million reporters (give or take a few) who were staying at the hotel for the Television Critics Association Press Tour.

Franklin Ave. seems to take umbrage with Edwards gall, but we’re more annoyed at our media brethren. A whole hotel of reporters whose job it is to watch TV and the only people to “catch” Edwards is the National Enquirer? Sigh. Well, I hope your interviews with Teri Hatcher were worth it.

LAT Magazine Mockery Raises Dander

press_latimes_coveer.jpgCoverage of the changes to the LAT magazine has raised the ire of one reader who protested:

I’m writing to clear up a rather significant misconception about the new Los Angeles Times Magazine. The editorial will not be driven by publishing. Although the magazine editors will operate independently of the newsroom, they will be held to the same high standards. The magazine will fully comply with ASME guidelines. I’m confident we will be able to produce a magazine that Los Angeles will embrace and a magazine that will profitable.

I have worked with Annie Gilbar on a number of projects over the years. Annie was one of the founding editors of InStyle magazine, one of the most successful launches in magazine history–a magazine that in many ways reinvented women’s fashion magazines. Annie has been the editor-in-chief! of 3 mag managing director of 2 web portals, written 18 books and yes, sold millions of dollars worth of style related product on HSN. It’s a little disconcerting to see her accomplishments so willfully misrepresented online.

OK. But we’re still having a good laugh at Franklin Ave.‘s suggested titles for the new book.

A Familiar Face On Franklin Avenue

unknown codddmic.jpg
We were perusing Franklin Ave., as we are want to do, and we happened upon this familiar face (the one on the right). The post was about the woman in the middle, Darleene Powells, who recently organized the AAJA panel on journalism and blogging. Powells, as Franklin Ave.’s Mike Schneider notes has been blogging for 10 years now. Schneider himself has been going strong for 5.

Happy anniversaries to both of you — and thanks for putting that aforementioned familiar face before us this a.m. We miss Kate around here.

[Update: The ever camera-shy Kate made us take down the photo. So much for that...]
