Convicted Baldwin Stalker Gives Daily News Another Jailhouse Interview

ShutterstockAlecBaldwinHilariaThomasIf you thought the end of the Alec Baldwin-Genevieve Sabourin trial would bring her moment in the media spotlight to a simultaneous close, there are now two Daily News articles to prove you wrong.

In the first item, published last Friday, Sabourin – who has begun serving seven months at Rikers Island – claimed she has been sleeping on an excrement-covered floor and had suffered a heart attack while in prison. Both charges were denied by prison officials.

Today, the News has more Sabourin news, courtesy of a ten-minute Saturday sit-down at Rikers:

The busty actress, first arrested in April 2012, accused the media of ignoring her side of the story in the case.
“Where have you been for the last two years?” she asked a News reporter. “Where were you journalists two years ago? Nobody asked to interview me then.”

Daily News Drags Ireland Baldwin Through Some Very Old Mud

DailyNewsFront_11_18Who, we wonder, is ultimately responsible for the first sentence of the article credited to Ryan Sit and Daniel Beekman? Did the reporters craft the lede, or was it – as it sort of feels like when reading – added in by their editors to support an equally offensive front page today:

This “little pig” has a roast beef with folks ridiculing her dad.

The paper is rightly taking heat for framing Alec Balwin‘s supportive daughter Ireland with this sordid, circa TMZ-2007 reference. Shame on them, say commenters to a Huffington Post article by associate media editor Catherine Taibi:

wandylou: While I think Baldwin needs to rein in his anger… Why would the NYDN sink so low to put his daughter with those words on the cover? If that were my daughter, you bet your life I’d be pissed. Exploiting the kids to spite Baldwin… Not cool.

Cameron Yarborough: “Little Pig”? Staff at the Daily News are sicker than Alec Baldwin.

Cop Leverages Facebook to Talk Down Suicidal College Student

New York Daily News reporter Thomas Tracy has shared a  gut-wrenching item . One that happily ends in a very different way than many of those horrifying accounts of Facebook bullying.

PortAuthorityLogoAfter an unidentified 18-year-old New Jersey college student posted a picture on Facebook of the George Washington Bridge and the status “I’m thinking of jumping,” the scary info was relayed by a Facebook friend to authorities. Here’s what miraculously happened next after Paterson, NJ law enforcement officials passed on the information to the Port Authority Police Department:

Lieutenant Thomas Michaels distributed a photo of the college student to his officers and also left a message on the teen’s Facebook page encouraging him to call him. Within a few hours, the teen reached out, Michaels said.

Media Covering Illinois ‘Penis Church’ Keep It Clean

PenisChurchBecause in this case, there’s no need to be clever, pun-tastic or salacious. The straight Dixon, IL facts are enough to hang some very bizarre headlines and first paragraphs on:

Rush & Molloy & Many Delightful Memories

ScandalCoverThere’s a new book out today from George Rush and Joanna Molloy. Scandal: A Manual is written mostly from Rush’s point of view and offers 256 pages of breezy anecdotes from the pair’s separate and combined days in the trenches of NYC celebrity gossip.

One of the main takeaways is how much more fun this beat was before the Internet took a firm 24/7 hold. It was never quite a noble profession, but pre-Gawker, TMZ and the rest, the pair only had to compete with the New York Post, most of the time in playful ways:

We tried not to yank people out of the closet. But we did sometimes give clues.We once ran a photo of ‘N Sync’s Lance Bass with Jamie Lynn-Sigler and Shannon Elizabeth as they picked out free stuff at a hospitality suite. Bass’ then-secret partner, Reichen Lehmkuhl, was with them.

Banksy Posts; New Yorkers Show Up [Update]

Do you consider yourself a New Yorker in the know? Do you follow what appears to be a brand new, official Banksy Twitter account? If the answers to these questions are respectively yes and no, you may want to remedy the latter.

October3Banksy

The famed, stealth British-born graffiti artist has set up artistic residency in Manhattan and triggered a Twitter account pointing to the website banksyny.com. The site is chronicling his various NYC street efforts and causing lots of excitement each time around. From a New York Daily News report:

To Pace student Mathias Watson, 21, it was an exciting opportunity to see an authentic Banksy in-person. “I just love the chase,” he said, adding that he found the location after Banksy tweeted it. The Chelsea piece has already accrued new tags, from a black stencil of embattled Chinese artist and activist Ai Wei Wei to other graffiti artist tags.

Proverbial Fat Lady Frames New York City Opera Coverage

Take your misdirected-allegory pick. That is if you believe the expression “It ain’t over til the fat lady sings” has everything to do with the late Kate Smith and little do with arias.

The “fat lady” is all over today’s coverage of the New York City Opera’s announcement that it has been forced to cancel the 2013-14 season and file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. She’s singing the lede at Crain’s New York Business; belting out the headline for TIME; and being rudely pluralized in the New York Daily News.
