Mediaplanet Prepares to Empower Bay Area Female Tech Leaders

As a Mediaplanet Publishing project manager, Janel Gallucci (pictured) oversaw a series of four 2010-12 USA TODAY 16 to 24-page broadsheet insert sections titled “Investing in Women & Girls.” The success of that campaign has led Gallucci to San Francisco, where she is newly installed as a managing director and working on a similar initiative to be published through the San Francisco Chronicle.

The impetus for Mediaplanet’s upcoming July 5 section is pretty clear. According to Gallucci, only three percent of tech startups are female-led and women are receiving just one percent of venture capital funding.

“We’re the global leader in themed media,” Gallucci tells FishbowlLA via telephone. “What that means is we partner with the top newspapers around the world to produce niche, focused publications.”

“For the USA TODAY series, our editorial team authored all the content, but it was unbiased,” she adds. “So it’s not an advertorial in any way, and the content was all about raising awareness in this global ‘women and girls’ movement.”

Hillary Clinton Signs Book Deal with Simon & Schuster

It has been a busy week for Simon & Schuster. On Monday, the publishing house gave Cat Marnell $500,000 to write a book, and now it has a deal with Hillary Clinton to pen a memoir.

According to the company, Clinton’s book will focus on how she’s going to win the 2016 election. Kidding! It will focus on “sharing key decisions and experiences as Secretary of State and her ideas for how the United States can address the challenges of a dramatically changing world in the 21st century.”

“Hillary Clinton’s extraordinary public service has given her a unique perspective on recent history and the challenges we face,”  said Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, in a statement. “This will be the ultimate book for people who are interested in world affairs and America’s place in the world today.”

The book will publish in 2014, two years before Clinton becomes president.

By the way, Mediabistro editors will be at tomorrow’s Women in the World conference where Clinton keynotes in the morning. Look for coverage on FishbowlNY tomorrow.

The Year in Review: Ten LA Journo Feel-Good Stories

In the space of a few days this time last year, film critic Alonso Duralde went from tweeting about the vile acts of an LA arsonist, to revealing he had become a victim of carport incineration, to thanking the public at large for donations to cover the purchase of a new vehicle. As such, his experiences stand as one of the more unconventionally heartwarming news stories of 2012 involving an LA journalist.

But there were others. Here are nine more such items from this reporter’s FishbowlLA docket:

Time Takes on Hillary Clinton

The cover story for the latest issue of Time is dedicated to Hillary Clinton, and the piece discusses everything from the 64-year-old’s relentless work ethic to her many accomplishments.

In addition to the cover story, Time’s Managing Editor, Richard Stengel, sat down with Clinton for an interview in which she explains that there are no hard feelings toward Obama over losing the presidential nomination, and likens the Occupy Wall Street protesters to the Tea Party.

And to top all of that, there’s also a poll that shows Clinton would do better than Obama if she were up for re-election:

Super Arianna: Huffington Gets Her Own Comic

Bluewater Comics, a publishing company that has created comic books for Martha Stewart, Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin under its “Female Force” series, is creating one about Arianna Huffington.

According to a press release obtained by Adweek, the comic will cover her “time studying in England, her marriage to a congressman, her run as governor of California and how her website was sold to AOL for $315 million.”

The cover is a little disappointing, isn’t it? Couldn’t we at least get a cape? Oh well. If you’re interested, the issues comes out in October.

Big Government Unleashes Latest Contribution to the Journalistic World: Weinergate

The Woodward and Bernstein wannabes at Big Government just broke their latest story of import: Weinergate. Wildly important, we assure you. An anonymous BG blogger posting under the handle Publius somehow got hold of a private tweet sent from New York Representative Anthony Weiner‘s account to a young lady Twitter follower of the Congressman. That tweet contained an image of an underwear-clad man sporting what appears to be a generous stiffy. Potentially big news, considering Weiner recently married longtime Hillary Clinton aid Huma Abedin.

Weiner claims his Twitter account was hacked, as was his Facebook account. Which seems pretty plausible, because as dumb as our politicians are these days, the majority of them have the sense not to tweet pictures of their junk to random girls they don’t know. That’s what email is for.

Hillary Clinton Calls Al-Jazeera ‘Real News,’ American Media ‘Commercials’ and ‘Talking Heads’

Michael Paterniti at GQ wrote a compelling article called “Inside Al-Jazeera,” which takes a look at how Al-Jazeera became the news network to watch in 2011, while casting a shadow on U.S. news coverage and its shortcomings.

Initially, Al-Jazeera was met with great distrust. “To Western governments after September 11, the network was a mouthpiece for Al Qaeda, while for Al Qaeda the network wasn’t mouthpiece enough.” But things turned around with its coverage of the Arab Spring. The network puts less emphasis on the fame level, book deals, attractiveness or pounding opinions of its correspondents; the emphasis, believe it or not, is on the actual news. And with it’s coverage of the Arab uprisings, the stark differences between U.S. networks and Al-Jazeera became came more and more to the fore.

[It] threw into high relief the difference between what we’ve come to accept as our television “news” here in America and what a network like Al Jazeera presents of the world each day, many times through a lens that has an almost populist, retro feel… In fact, Americans found themselves so hungry for full coverage and so stymied by their inability to watch Al Jazeera that 80,000 signed on to a “Demand Al Jazeera in the U.S.A.” campaign.

Even Hillary Clinton said (during a “particularly heavy Charlie Sheen week on American TV”) that “viewership of Al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news… You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners.”

Hasidic Newspaper Erases Hillary Clinton from Iconic Situation Room Photo

Everyone likes those photo hunt games, right? Well, let’s play one right now. See anything missing from the bottom picture? If you guessed Hillary Clinton, you win a prize that we won’t ever actually send you.

According to The New York PostDer Tzitung - a Hasidic newspaper in Brooklyn – deleted Clinton and Audrey Tomason, the Director of Counterterrorism, from the now iconic picture because it doesn’t want to show women in positions of authority.

Not only is that going to upset people, it’s against the law. The White House doesn’t allow the media to alter photographs that it releases.

 

Photo Editors Discuss Iconic Situation Room Photo, Get it Wrong

WWD asked some very fancy people what they thought of the now famous Situation Room photograph shown here. Almost every single one mentions Hillary Clinton as the most pivotal part of the picture, but they all saw something that wasn’t there.

Here’s a quick rundown of their thoughts:

Kira Pollack, Director of Photography, Time:

The Hillary Clinton expression is the one that holds the photograph fully. The reaction of her hand over her face. Her eyes. Clearly, she’s reacting to something she’s watching. She’s very unaware she’s being photographed. To me, the whole image is about Hillary.

Scott Hal, Director of Photography, Newsweek:

What’s most interesting to me about this photo is what you’re not seeing. The mystery of what’s happening off camera is captured wholly in the expression on Hillary’s face.

Michelle McNally, Assistant Managing Editor for Photography, The New York Times:

It’s pretty simple. It’s just the intense expression on Obama and Hillary’s faces.
