Executive ‘winced’ when he saw Daily Breeze’s Oscars headline

The Daily Breeze's headline Monday marking "12 Years a Slave" 's Best Picture win was "tacky, ridiculous, stupid," Michael Anastasi said in a phone call. Anastasi is the vice president of news and executive editor for Digital First Media's Los Angeles News Group, which publishes The (Torrance, Calif.) Daily Breeze.

The headline reads: "'Slave' becomes master." ("How does this actually get published?" Slade Sohmer writes.) Anastasi said "I winced" when he saw the front, and that his "body is still contorted" from his physical reaction to the headline. He's spoken to the Breeze's editors, he said. "They feel terrible and have taken responsibility," he said. "It should never have happened." There will be internal discipline, Anastasi said, declining to elaborate. He says the people at the Breeze "work very hard day in and day out to do some terrific journalism."

Not many people called to complain, he said, about four or five readers. "One is bothersome to me," he said.

Cold fronts: Snow hits newspapers’ front pages

Yeah, there's more snow in the Northeast and more newspaper fronts to show it. Unlike with the Polar Vortex, however, this time, people seem fashionably prepared, even if public works departments did not.

Bored with cold, Chicago paper fronts puppies

‘Seared Into Our Soul’: JFK front pages

It's not surprising that many newspapers used their front-pages Friday to acknowledge the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination. But many did notable work, whether via artwork created for the occasion, front pages from 50 years ago or headlines that stress local connections to JFK.
