  • 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.

Joan Vadeboncoeur

Herald-Journal

Herald American

Joan E. Vadeboncoeur, went to work at The Post-Standard as a reporter immediately after graduating from Sarah Lawrence College. But since she already had several years experience in theater work, she was a natural choice years later when the job of entertainment writer-editor opened at the Herald-Journal.
Joan, a life resident of the Syracuse area, began working in the box office of Famous Artists Country Playhouse in Fayetteville while still in high school. During summer vacations in college, Joan switched to the Famous Artists Country Playhouse in East Rochester, where she also worked in the box office and as assistant to the producer.

While studying theater at Sarah Lawrence, Joan gained more experience by working in a Broadway producer's office. Her jobs included working on "Midsummer," the play in which Geraldine Page made her Broadway bow. She also appeared in college productions.

After two years at The Post-Standard, Joan moved to the Herald-Journal as a general assignment reporter covering traffic accidents and other mishaps, and writing obituaries. She often rode in ambulances to accident scenes. Soon, her duties expanded as she filled in for vacationing movie and television writers.

Not too much later, Joan was appointed as music writer. Within two years, she became entertainment writer-editor, which included television, music, films, and theater.

Joan, now an entertainment columnist, has received the Syracuse Press Club's Lifetime Achievement Award, and has been honored by the Salt City Center for the Performing Arts and the Contemporary Theatre of Syracuse. She is a former member of Women in Communications. --Joseph A. Porcell
