Post Headline Mangles Hillary Clinton Remarks

The Web headline for today’s New York Post pick-up of Hillary Clinton‘s interview with The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg gets it a little less wrong. It reads: “Hillary Slams Obama for ‘Stupid’ Foreign Policies.”

NYPost_0811_Front

But per Brooklyn-based Business Insider politics reporter Colin Campbell, the front page of today’s print editions (above) is completely off the transcription track:

The phrase “stupid policy” doesn’t appear anywhere in The Atlantic‘s 6,200-word transcript of the Clinton interview where she criticized President Barack Obama.

Post Typos Staff Reporter’s Byline

Who is this New York Post reporter, Lia Eustachwich? A click on her hyperlinked byline reveals just one piece – today’s somber report titled “Couple Starved and Beat Daughter for Two Years: DA.”

It turns out that the bylined journalist is in fact Lia Eustachewich. In this single, slightly embarrassing instance, the Post accidentally rendered the second “E” in Eustachewich silent. The reporter is having fun with the flub.

Tribune Gets New Name Ahead of Split (TVSpy)
Tribune Company began operating under a new, but similar, name Monday: Tribune Media Company. The rebranding came as the broadcasting and publishing divisions of the 167-year-old company split. TVNewser Tribune Media Company includes Tribune Broadcasting, WGN America, Tribune Studios, Tribune Digital Ventures and Tribune Real Estate. Variety The overhaul comes with a new logo and corporate website. Tribune has labored under the cloud of bankruptcy and plunging ad revenues for years, leading to its fissure into two companies. Tribune’s papers, which include the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune, will begin trading Tuesday as a new company, Tribune Publishing. It will be listed under the symbol TPUB on the New York Stock Exchange. It has been saddled with $350 million in debt and faces a cloudy future as revenues and readership of newspapers continue to decline. THR Tribune Media CEO Peter Liguori has said the separation will allow investors to put money into either the broadcast or print assets of Tribune, or both. The spinoff is mindful of the split of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and 21st Century Fox. USA Today Tribune’s shareholders receive a quarter of a share of Tribune Publishing’s common stock for each Tribune share they own. After years of management turmoil and dealing with heavy debt, Tribune, based in Chicago, emerged from a four-year bankruptcy process in early 2013 with the intent to focus on broadcasting. In July 2013, Tribune announced early plans to spin off the publishing unit that would operate on its own without affecting the financial performance of its other, more profitable businesses.

Long Island Star Trek Fanatic’s Story Takes Flight

Captain’s media log [July 10, 2014; 12:30 p.m.]: The press on planet Earth has grabbed hold of Anthony Sforza‘s kooky basement tale.

BarcroftMediaLogoThe Daily Mail, the New York Post and UK’s The Mirror are likely just the beginning of this comet trail. And who can blame them? Packaged for worldwide consumption by Barcroft Media, the story of a Long Island dad’s fastidious three-year effort to erect a replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise in his expansive home’s basement has everything:

  • Tons of Star Trek SEO;
  • Split family feelings (his two young sons love the basement set-up; Sforza’s sister thinks he’s a little nuts);
  • An out-of-this-world slide show.

Bloomberg View Writer Has Fun with LeBron Rumors

Even though it flies in the face of any hint that a certain member of sports royalty will be giving FishbowlNY an exclusive interview, we love today’s Bloomberg View headline.

BloombergViewLeBronHeadline

And imagine our delight as we went on to discover that the article-text by Kavitha A. Davidson, who once edited the Columbia University student newspaper sports section, is even better. A taste:

Truly, at this point it seems as likely that LeBron will stay in Miami as it is that he’ll join Al Qaeda. But wait: Apparently there’s a universe in which the possibility of him joining ‘Melo in New York exists. As an unnamed source – is there any other kind? – told the New York Post, Phil Jackson “really wants LeBron to come to New York. That’s his dream right now. Phil is trying to get it done.”

Greenwich Village Newspaper Publisher Defends N-Word Obama Headline

The article by James Lincoln Collier in the latest edition of 20,000-circulation monthly WestView News is actually pro-Obama. But as New York Post writers Kevin Fasick and Laura Italiano accurately suggest, many readers – especially since the article is not presently online – will never get past the shock of a very debatable headline: “The N***** in the White House”.

WestViewNewsLogo

From the Post article:

The shocking headline sits at the top of page 15 above an opinion piece that criticizes what it calls the anti-black “racism” of far-right voters…

Columnist Alvin Hall wrote a piece called “This Headline Offends Me,” which ran below Collier’s column. Said one West Villager, Eugene May: “It’s disrespectful in any context to refer to the President of the United States as the N-word.”

A McDonald’s Horror Story

How do you react when you read the following headline, first published Tuesday afternoon by the New York Post?:

NYPostMcDonaldsHeadline

Does it make you never want to eat at a McDonald’s again? Does it make you more fearful of living in New York City? Or does it simply remind that the City That Never Sleeps is also, alas, the City That Never Ceases to Shock?

Observer Checks In with Disgraced Page Six Reporter

All these years later, Jared Paul Stern maintains that this clothing venture was at the heart of his discussions with Ron Burkle about money. Not some sort of scandalous payola to ensure that the billionaire would receive favorable Page Six coverage.

UrbanDaddyDrivenLogoToday, Stern is the editor of Urban Daddy’s auto blog Driven. He also freelances. If one goes by Observer contributor Ben Widdicombe‘s Kennebunkport impressions, the former Post writer’s demeanor does not quite sync up with the bravado:

Today, Stern, 43, describes his life as being at “a new pinnacle.” He has toned down the film noir wardrobe and attitude – no more fedoras – but maintains a flair for haberdashery.

New York Magazine Sparks Post-News-Mayor Ruckus

Here’s how it all went down.

On Sunday, New York magazine posted “Chirlane McCray’s City,” the Web version of contributing editor Lisa Miller‘s profile of Mayor de Blasio’s wife.

NYPost_0519On Monday, the Post and Daily News front-page framed the interview revelations as being of the “bad mom” variety. And today, in the pages of the New York Times, there is coverage of a quickly convened Monday de Blasio presser:

The mayor decided midday on Monday that he wanted to address the headlines, and ordered his aides to organize a question-and-answer session with reporters. “It suggests a tremendous misunderstanding of what it means to be a parent, what it means to be a mother,” de Blasio said of the coverage.
