On Lacrosse Fields Then and in Journalism Now, Vet Tells Students It’s All About ‘Pure Substitution Effect’

Sabrina Szteinbaum, associate news editor of student newspaper The Daily Targum, has a good summary of a speech given Tuesday to Rutgers journalism students by Lincoln Caplan.

LincolnCaplanPicCaplan’s credentials are impeccable: staff writer for the New Yorker; editor-in-chief of Legal Affairs; White House fellow; and more. To frame the current changes affecting journalism, he chose to go back to the days when he frequented the playing fields of Rutgers and other universities as a member of Harvard’s lacrosse team:

New York Times media columnist Brian Stelter broke the news, which was then quickly picked up by the likes of TV Guide, The Hollywood Reporter and TV Squad.

“The folks at E! approached me several months ago,” Laura told FishbowlLA exclusively this morning via e-mail after returning from the doctor’s office where she watched four-month-old daughter Li get vaccine shots. “I’d [also] had some informal conversations with other outlets.”

On the one hand, this has to be a bitter pill for Current TV, the cable TV network for whom Ling was reporting at the time of her apprehension on the China-North Korea border in the early morning hours of March 17th, 2009. The new E! show sounds a lot like the old Vanguard program, albeit with more of a domestic focus, and even the way the San Francisco based network quietly blogged in late January about Ling’s decision to leave her post there as Vice President spoke volumes.
