  • New York Daily News resumes gun control crusade

    The front page of today’s New York Daily News is a familiar sight to those who track the tendencies of tabloid wood.

    Below a blood-spattered handgun, the words “America’s full of it” appear in large type. Above that, the Daily News counts the dead since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

    “Since Newtown, 84,523 people have been killed by guns in the U.S,” the page reads. “We cry. We get angry. We demand action. Then we forget…until the next time”:

    The front exemplifies what has become a typical response for the Daily News in the wake of high-profile shootings. Within days of the massacre at Sandy Hook, the tabloid prominently featured President Obama’s pledge to pass legislation curbing gun violence:

  • This week on Medium: Mag covers used to have more clothes, less words

    Happy Friday and happy weekend reading. Here’s our weekly roundup of things we read about journalism and the media this week on Medium. Thanks to Gurman Bhatia and Katie Hawkins-Gaar for helping curate.

    The Evolution of Magazine Covers

    Karen X. Cheng and Jerry Gabra offer a fascinating look at how magazines have changed (or not changed, New Yorker,) over time.

    They write:

    Together, these magazine covers reveal a peek into our history. Sure, we’ve gotten more sexualized. More superficial. We read less. We have shorter attention spans.

    But we’ve also gotten more open-minded. At each step along the way, society has pushed the limits of what’s considered acceptable.

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.
