  • PBS ombud: Judy Woodruff’s Clinton Foundation donation a ‘mistake’

    PBS

    Michael Getler, the ombudsman for PBS, called on Thursday a decision by “PBS NewsHour” managing editor Judy Woodruff to donate to the Clinton Foundation “a mistake”:

    Woodruff has had a distinguished, 45-year journalistic career, holding down important positions with CBS, NBC, CNN and PBS. She has always struck me as straight and professional in her approach to the news and, having watched her now for several years, I couldn’t tell you how she’d vote. But there are lots of ways to contribute to Haitian earthquake relief. So the choice of the Clinton Foundation, even in a small amount and with the best of intentions, was a mistake in my book.

    As Getler explains, Woodruff recently discussed on air a donation of $250 to the Haiti Relief Fund, a charitable initiative founded by the Clinton Foundation in 2010 when the country was reeling from a massive earthquake. Read more

  • 110 photojournalists run National Geographic’s Instagram account

    Three years ago, National Geographic started an Instagram feed. Now, it has close to 7,000 images, more than 19 million followers and recently reached its billionth like.

    But guess who’s running the account? Not a social media manager, not an editor, not someone from marketing.

    It’s the photojournalists — 110 of them. They each have the password. They try and give each other about an hour between posts. And they’re curating images from assignments, their lives, their travels and anything else that they choose.

    “We’ve taken a completely different approach than most people when we started it,” said Sarah Leen, director of photography at National Geographic. “The idea was to give the photographers this opportunity to have a place to display the work they were doing for us or even the work they were just doing.”

    It’s not a place to sell magazines or photos, she said. Read more

    The San Diego Union-Tribune (as it’s now called) already has a new Twitter avatar that reflects the changed name.

    Say hello to our old name and our new avatar.

    — The Union-Tribune (@sdut) May 21, 2015

    Austin Beutner, the publisher of the California News Group, explained the name change in a letter to Union-Tribune readers published Thursday. The paper was rechristened to reflect “the proud history of this organization,” he wrote. Read more
