  • New York Review of Books responds to New York Times’ rebuttal of nails’ exposé critique

    New York Review of Books

    Richard Bernstein continued his beef with the New York Times’ nail salon exposé and says the editor’s response was late and insufficient.

    Bernstein’s article, published on the New York Review of Books website on Friday, came in response to the letter issued by New York Times editors earlier this week. And so, the debate rages on over ‘Unvarnished’ by Times Reporter Sarah Maslin Nir.

    The Times’ rebuttal called his critique as “industry advocacy” while Bernstein responded by focusing on the paper’s lack of response to its allegation that classified advertisements don’t offer $10 a day for workers, as was reported by the story. Bernstein is a part owner of two New York City day spas that are operated by his wife and sister-in-law, both Chinese natives, in an industry with many Asian immigrants. Read more

  • American Journalism Review to cease publication

    American Journalism Review will cease operation after almost 38 years of publication. The announcement was made on the publication’s website Friday evening. The news comes exactly two years after it ceased the production of its print edition. The magazine was published by Phillip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.

    “Over many decades, American Journalism Review has been an incredible value both to the college and to American journalists,” said Merrill College Dean Lucy Dalglish. “Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the resources needed to keep AJR the vibrant, innovative online publication it deserves to be.”

    The magazine will no longer be publishing “original” content. However, the existing archives will still be available on the website.

    AJR’s death comes almost one and a half year after its redesign in late 2013. Read more

  • This week on Medium: 5 stories you may have missed

    Happy Friday! Here’s some weekend reading (if you just can’t get enough of journalism, writing or the media,) gathered from good stuff published on Medium this week and last. Thanks to Katie Hawkins-Gaar and Vidisha Priyanka for helping to curate.

    ‘Twelve Step Program’ for Becoming An Investigative Reporter

    Brock Meeks delivers on the promise of that headline with what it takes to make it in investigative journalism. They should teach No. 4 in journalism school:

    4. Cultivate the Crazies, Kooks and Conspiracy Theorists

    As an investigative reporter you’re going to hear from all corners of society, none more so that the “fringe element,” those that believe the CIA has implanted listening devices in fillings of their teeth or are secretly working on an anti-gravity machine. And you’ll hear from them in droves: Pay.Attention.To.Them

    Once in a great while, among the flotsam and jetsam of cornball theories and suspicions, you’ll find an absolute pearl, an honest-to-god scoop of story that no one else took the time to uncover.

Media giant ESPN target of lawsuit by Laurie Fine
Wednesday, 16 May 2012 13:22


Laurie Fine will file a lawsuit n federal court accusing ESPN and two of its employees of libel.  Fine's suit accuses the network of breaking the story of Bobby Davis'  allegations of sexual abuse against her husband, former assistant basketball coach of Bernie Fine without any credible corroborating sources. "This Complaint for Libel arises from Defendant ESPN’s coverage of Robert Davis’ uncorroborated attack upon Plaintiff Laurie J. Fine. Through this coverage, ESPN, acting by and through its agents and employees, including Defendants Mark Schwarz and Arthur Berko, spitefully destroyed Laurie Fine’s reputation in an attempt to capitalize financially in the tragic wake of the Penn State Sex Abuse Scandal. Defendants have ruined Laurie Fine’s reputation by maliciously publishing false and defamatory factual accusations."

In the lawsuit document Fine flatly denies ever knowing of or suspecting her husband of molesting Davis or any other person.  She also denies Davis' claim that she had a sexual relationship with him or Davis claim that she had sexual relationships with several former Syracuse University basketball players.

Local media promise extended coverage with local television outlets planning to carry the news conference live on their secondary digital channels and on their websites, and feeding national media with the story.  ESPN responded claiming the  suit is without merit an the network  stand behind its story.
