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.
Coverage 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.
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...]
