Off the Media: Clever Headlines, Kate Coe and Giuliani

giuliani_to_run.jpgOK, we may be giving too much significance to just one segment on this week’s On the Media, but since it’s sister-blogger Kate Coe from our own FishbowlLA, we can’t help but crow. OTM’s Bob Garfield interviews Kate about her story for the L.A. Weekly on how little coverage a black-on-white Halloween crime received.

What also stood out this week was these wince-inducing headlines on the OTM Web site:

  • “Clink Stained Wretch” (on San Francisco reporter Josh Wolf’s imprisonment for refusing to turn over video he took of a demonstration).
  • “A Zion in the Sand” (on whether the pro-Israel lobby is really preventing honest debate on Israel).
  • “Murder Ink” (on LA Times crime reporter Jill Leovy‘s quest to cover the crimes in The Homicide Report).”
  • “Twist of Hate” (for Kate’s story).

Last week (which we haven’t covered, yet) there was a nice piece reminding us about how disliked Giuliani was before he became “America’s Mayor” on 9/11 (of which The Onion today names him president). A lot us remember when Rudy was not the beloved rock of 9/11, but rather an overly-controlling, press-loathing, distrustful, nightclub hating … Remember?
