  • The VA story the networks didn’t cover this week

    This story originally appeared on the PunditFact website. Poynter.org is republishing with permission.

    Back in May, anyone who tuned in to almost any news show was guaranteed to hear about administrative delays that caused the deaths of 40 veterans at a VA hospital in Phoenix. Sometimes, the charge was softened a bit and news anchors talked about how the delays "might have" led to the deaths, but the general message was clear: Mismanagement, and even criminal deceit, had cut short the lives of people who had served their country.

    On Tuesday, the Office of Inspector General at the Veterans Affairs Department issued its final report on the matter. While it confirmed a manipulation of scheduling records that it called unethical and in some cases criminal, it refuted the allegation that drove the headlines in May.… Read more

  • After Sawyer’s final ABC World News broadcast, all 3 nightly anchors are now white men

    Yo. Here are some media stories.

    1. Is the Yo app ridiculous or revolutionary? That’s the question Cory Blair asks. It’s definitely the former, but it has potential to be the latter, especially now that users can send links and not just notifications with no content. Robert Hernandez has an interesting idea for what news organizations like The Washington Post could use Yo for: “whenever an unarmed person dies at the hands of the police, or every time somebody is killed with a gun.” (American Journalism Review)
    2. Diane Sawyer anchors her final ABC World News broadcast: But she’s staying with the network. David Muir is her successor. “Now, all three nightly news anchors are once again white men,” Brian Stelter notes. (CNN)
    3. NPR’s Michel Martin heads to Ferguson: The former “Tell Me More” host will lead a town hall meeting today.

Summer 2014: Comings and Goings
Written by Josh Cradduck   
Thursday, 31 July 2014 22:03

 

Here is a brief look at some of the Comings and Goings from early-summer so far:

 

 

 

Congratulations to CNY-Central reporter KATIE CORRADO, who just headed to Connecticut to become FOXCT's weekend morning anchor/weekday morning reporter. Katie has been with the Syracuse NBC affiliate for two years. 

 

A big congratulations to CNY Central's BRIAN ERB, who has after 42 years at the station. Brian started at the NBC affiliate in November of 1971, making him one of the longest-serving photographers in the Syracuse market. We're told his retirement plans are to “kick back and enjoy his grandchildren.” Brian has been honored with dozens of awards over the years, including SPC Career Achievement in 2002.

 

Another veteran is leaving the media scene in CNY.  JOHN MARIANI has retired from the Post-Standard/Syracuse Media Group after a 32-year career. His long stint at the paper included reporting on government, neighborhoods, politics and business, as well as editing NewsLine.
