Media Turns a Reflective Eye Inward at Mirror Awards

Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Communications held its sixth annual Mirror Awards ceremony at the Plaza Hotel this afternoon, honoring the year’s best media reporting.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper emceed the ceremony, which TVNewser attended. He opened the event with commentary on the role of news organizations in society, noting the importance of incorporating women and minorities into a media industry “traditionally dominated by — well, frankly, by white men. Woohoo, white men,” Cooper said sarcastically.

“Please don’t Tweet that!” Cooper said as the crowd laughed. “Arianna, take your hands off that keyboard. At least explain, give it some context!”

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was also on hand to present the I-3 Award for Impact, Innovation and Influence to the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

TVNewser spotted Arianna Huffington and Gabriel Sherman, who is working on a book about Fox News and was nominated for “Elephant in the Green Room,” a New York magazine feature on the network.  Also on the guest list: Contessa Brewer, Poppy Harlow, CNN News Networks president Greg D’Alba, “CBS This Morning” executive producer Chris Licht and MSNBC vice president of primetime programming Bill Wolff.

It’s Politics–As Usual–On Cable News Channels After Census Results Revealed

The results of the 2010 U.S. Census were released today, and as is so often the case, the cable news channels chose to focus on the political implications.

Of course, one of the big reasons behind conducting the Census is so that Congressional seats can be reapportioned to reflect the population. But there are plenty of other important stories to come out of the data.

For example: the Census showed that the U.S. saw the slowest population growth since the Great Depression, and much of the growth, particularly in the Southwestern U.S., was from Hispanics and other minority groups.

Why the U.S. saw such slow growth, and why so much of that growth was from minorities, are ripe subjects for news organizations to look into. Perhaps they will, but for now, the networks have been too busy bringing on political analysts to talk about Republican and Democratic strategy, and how the Census will affect political races still years away.

It was not all strategy, however.

How A Multi-Platform Journalist Gets it All Done

You may have seen her on CNN, or CNN International, or HLN or CNN.com Live or…okay, we’ll stop. But you get the idea. Poppy Harlow is the anchor/correspondent for CNNMoney.com but appears across the Time Warner universe to talk about the ailing economy, the Wall Street whiplash (more whip, than lash) and personal finance issues.

She’s been busy these days.

Whether it’s a live interview with a member of congress, tracking down Bernie Madoff‘s victims in her native Minnesota or appearing on CNNMoney’s Web shows, Harlow has little down time. But she spent a few minutes with us this morning in CNNMoney’s newsroom at Time Warner Center.
