Brian Snyder had no idea his storm photo appeared on the front pages of four major newspapers this weekend until people started sending him links about it, he said by phone Sunday afternoon.

It’s not unusual for a single image to dominate a news event. But it is unusual for the same photo to be prominently featured on four major newspapers. Reuters photojournalist Brian Snyder captured the front page image (shown below) in Boston on Friday, as the storm was arriving. Only the New York Post uses the name ‘Nemo’ to refer to the blizzard that has dumped several feet of snow in the northeast and left thousands without power. || Update: The story behind Brian Snyder’s photo || Related: New York Times, Wall Street Journal drop paywalls for storm coverage | How Wall Street Journal, NPR are using RebelMouse for storm coverage, Fashion Week Read more

Public Policy Polling | Gallup | Pew
The polling organization that accurately predicted the 2012 presidential election — state by state — has completed its fourth annual poll of TV news trust.
Public Policy Polling found that only PBS is trusted more than it is mistrusted. Every other network is mistrusted by more people than trust it.
“Fox News has hit a record low in the four years that we’ve been doing this poll,” PPP reports; “41% of voters trust it to 46% who do not. To put those numbers into some perspective the first time we did this poll, in 2010, 49% of voters trusted it to 37% who did not.” Read more

Crain’s | Poynter
Since flooding from Hurricane Sandy displaced the New York Daily News, staffers have been working from the paper’s New Jersey printing plant and from home. But they are returning to Manhattan now that the company has leased temporary space, reports Matt Chaban for Crain’s. Just after the superstorm hit the city, Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman said it could take a year for their lower Manhattan home to reopen, but the news org will return to it in 2-4 months, publisher Bill Holiber told Chaban. Meanwhile, the Daily News will work out of midtown’s Sixth Avenue tower. Read more

“House of Cards” is primarily about politics — old-style power and manipulation in the capital — but it’s also about journalism, and how the new replaces the old, over and over.
Spoilers throughout: In the 13-episode first season of the original Netflix series, journalist Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) rises quickly from metro reporter at The Washington Herald to be offered the job of chief White House correspondent, which she turns down.
“The White House is where news goes to die,” Zoe tells her editor. The position used to be prestigious “when I was in ninth grade. Now it’s a graveyard.” Read more

There were 24.1 million tweets about the game, including 5.5 million about Beyonce’s halftime show, Twitter reports. That figure does not include the ads. Twitter appeared in half the Super Bowl commercials, according to Matt McGee at Marketing Land, who also counted four Facebook mentions, one YouTube appearance and one Instagram.
The commercials are anticipated, previewed and reviewed. Following Clint Eastwood’s “Halftime in America” commercial for Chrysler at last year’s Super Bowl, the car company used patriotism as a theme this year for a commercial about the military featuring Oprah Winfrey, and a spot about farmers, a version of which was produced by Farms.com and shared on YouTube in 2011.
