  • ISIS-sex-toy-flag creator slams CNN

    The Guardian

    On Saturday, CNN reported on “an ISIS flag among a sea of rainbow colors,” at London’s Pride parade. It wasn’t an ISIS flag, though, but one made with images of sex toys.

    Paul Coombs, creator of that flag, wrote a piece Tuesday for The Guardian about why he created it.

    It has become a potent symbol of brutality, fear and sexual oppression. If I wanted to try and stimulate a dialogue about the ridiculousness of this ideology, the flag was key.

    Coombs wrote he was approached by police officers, who thought the flag was funny but could put him in danger if people didn’t look closely. So Coombs put it away.

    Several hours passed before I noticed spreading news that CNN reported on the flag as though it was an actual Isis banner, not a piece of cloth covered in sex toys.

    The United States government should not block families willing to pay ransoms to terrorists who hold a family member hostage, says a prominent journalist who has chronicled the plight of five such families.

    “I had very ambivalent feelings about governments paying and I still do,” said Lawrence Wright, a Pulitzer Prize winning author and staff writer for the New Yorker. “But I believe the government should not get in the way of families trying to save their children.”

    Wright is steeped in to the topic after reporting and writing “Five Hostages,” a 25,000-word New Yorker piece that was released online last week and surfaced Monday in the latest print edition of the magazine, which is dated July 6 and 13. Read more

  • Philly contract deal: company hikes health payments, gets concessions on layoffs and raises

    A tentative contract for Philadelphia’s major newspapers includes greater healthcare contributions by management but concessions on whether it must heed traditional seniority rules when it comes to layoffs.

    The deal does not include any raise in basic wages. It was bargained shortly before a Saturday deadline. Details were discussed in several sessions with Newspaper Guild members on Monday.

    In all, about 500 Guild members are covered by two separate contracts: one covering workers at the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News, while the other covers about 50 people at Philly.com

    The two most heated issues were health care contributions and use of seniority in layoffs.

    With layoffs, management will be able to exempt certain individuals “deemed to be essential to the company’s operations” from seniority-driven layoffs. Read more
