Oprah Vents While Stars And Stripes Admits Porn Problem, Plus Other News of the Day

- Oprah Winfrey wasn’t pleased; wasn’t pleased at all to leave broadcast television. According to a report from Fortune magazine, Oprah talks about what took place when she negotiated a partnership with Discovery Communications to help build her own network OWN. Discovery CEO David Zaslav demanded more of Oprah’s time and on-air presence at OWN, if he was going to commit. She said she “wasn’t pleased,” according to Fortune. “I wasn’t pleased at all.” Well, it seems like she’s gotten over it.

- Stars and Stripes employees aren’t just reporting the war, according to an internal investigation. They’re also partaking in other activities provided on the Internet. “A Stars and Stripes internal investigation found that ‘a considerable number’ of the news organization’s Pacific employees have accessed gambling and pornography sites using government computers, officials confirmed this week,” writes Stars and Stripes Erik Slavin.  When will people learn that their computers are being watched at work? This seems to happen all the time now.

- Business journalists now have a stylebook. Really, it’s not the first. Most organizations have basic writing guide, but UNC-Chapel Hill journalism professor Chris Roush decided to write a book for business journalists to reference, if needed. What’s Roush’s biggest issue with business journalism? “My biggest pet peeve when reading a business story is seeing a business term or phrase used incorrectly by the reporter and not corrected by the editor,” said Roush to Talking Biz News. “It’s apparent that someone who was interviewed for the story said the term or phrase in the interview, and the reporter thought it sounded important, so they decided to use it. But they don’t know what the term really means. I see this a lot with net income vs. operating income.” I hate that too.

- NPR has hired on two more investigative journalists, reports our sister blog FishbowlDC. Margot Williams comes from the New York Times and the Washington Post, where she uncovered jihadists online and worked on two “Washington Post Pulitzer Prize-winning teams,” according to NPR’s internal memo written by investigative head Susanne Reber. The other, Alicia Cypress, also comes from the Post offices, where she worked for the past 16 years. While there, she created the Post Tech podcast and the “Green” page, which focused on the environment.
