  • The decisions behind the New York Magazine’s Cosby cover

    When New York Magazine began planning its stunning cover of 35 women who accuse Bill Cosby of assault 30 women had come forward. Now, six months later the number is 46.

    The magazine had to navigate a range of ethical, journalistic and design challenges. For instance, is it fair to publicly accuse a person when he/she has not been charged? How would the magazine portray the women in still photographs? Even subtle decisions such as lighting, makeup and framing can affect reader impressions.

    Lauren Starke, New York Magazine director of public relations, answered a range of questions I posed via email:

    How and Why did you choose to have women wearing black and sitting in the chair with their hands on their laps for the cover photo? Read more

  • Morning roundup: New York Times flap may not be nail-bitter as paper roundly defends expose

    Good morning.

    1. Literati duel as Times chides New York Review of Books criticism

      Former Times reporter Richard Bernstein took after the big expose on the nail salon industry, both benefiting from and compromised by his role as a day spa owner. Executive Editor Dean Baquet on Tuesday responded with understated, convincing force. This may not be a very close call.

  • There’s a Facebook group to help journalists figure out their plan B

    Last May, Russ Kendall learned that another friend and journalist had been laid off. Linda Epstein, McClatchy-Tribune Wire’s senior photo editor for 15 years, would lose her job in July when the company shuttered its wire service. By July 21, Kendall launched a closed Facebook group. Here’s what he wrote on the page’s first post:

    What’s Your Plan B? was created to be a forum for journalists who have been laid off and those who haven’t been laid off yet, to share ideas, business plans, anything that might give hope and help to those who need it.

    Two days later, Jim Romenesko reported that the group already had 400 members.

    Now, more than 2,670 people are part of What’s Your Plan B? (including me. Kendall reached out last month after I wrote “Advice for journalists who’ve lost their jobs from journalists who’ve lost their jobs.”) People share job openings on the page. Read more
