Press critic Jack Shafer to join Politico

The Huffington Post

Jack Shafer, formerly a media critic for Slate and Reuters, will join Politico, according to a staff memo from Politico editor Susan Glasser.

At Politico, Shafer’s duties will include writing a regular column and reporting out longer pieces, according to the memo.

As we begin the quadrennial follies of a presidential election amid a wave of media disruption, Jack promises to be the indispensable guide to the political tumult, who always calls it like he sees it and whose sharp insights and razor observations come accompanied not only by deeply informed reporting – but also by a requisite sense of the long history underpinning all this narrative of American political journalism.

Shafer was most recently a media critic for Reuters, a job he was let go from in November. Upon his departure, Shafer told Poynter he wasn’t taking the news hard.

“I’m fine,” Shafer told Poynter. “My philosophy is that the job belongs to the employer,” he said. “When they want to do something else with the money, that’s their prerogative.”

Before Shafer joined Reuters, he was a longtime press critic for Slate. Before that he was editor of Washington City Paper and San Francisco Weekly.

Shafer will start on Tuesday, according to the memo:

All – The incomparable Jack Shafer is joining us! Jack is the premier press critic of our time, and we can’t wait to welcome him to POLITICO. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long; he’ll start here on Tuesday, launching a regular new column for us and doing more longform reporting and feature-length articles. As we begin the quadrennial follies of a presidential election amid a wave of media disruption, Jack promises to be the indispensable guide to the political tumult, who always calls it like he sees it and whose sharp insights and razor observations come accompanied not only by deeply informed reporting – but also by a requisite sense of the long history underpinning all this narrative of American political journalism. Jack’s resume is of course the perfect one to enable him to play the referee: he’s tried just about every kind of journalistic reinvention himself. Until recently, he wrote a column about the press and politics for Reuters; for 15 years before that he worked at Slate, first as deputy editor and then as the site’s Press Box columnist. Prior to Slate he spent 11 years editing two alternative weeklies—San Francisco Weekly and Washington City Paper. And before that he was managing editor of a now-defunct political magazine called Inquiry.

Please join us in welcoming Jack!

BUTTERBALL TURKEY FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER

Here’s why food editors don’t mess with Thanksgiving (but some would like to)

You can always call the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line, which is still a thing, at 1-800-BUTTERBALL.  (PRNewsFoto/Butterball Turkey Company)

You can always call the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line(TM) at 1-800-BUTTERBALL. (PRNewsFoto/Butterball Turkey Company)

It was around the Jewish High Holy Days, actually, when Sheryl Julian learned not to mess with people’s recipes. The menu was pretty much the same for the Jewish community in Boston, Julian said, who were then largely Ashkenazi.

“One year I found a Sephardic Jewish woman raised in north Africa and she gave me this wonderful menu,” said Julian, food editor for The Boston Globe.

About a month later, a woman stopped Julian after she gave a talk “and she said, ‘I have a bone to pick with you. What where you doing printing that recipe on the High Holy Day? That’s not what the Jews in Boston make.’”

Yes, Julian replied, but wasn’t it interesting?

“And she said, ‘it was different and i wasn’t interested.’”

Don’t you have your own recipes? Julian asked the woman.

“And she said, ‘of course i do, I just want to read everyone else’s.’”

Julian realized something just then. It doesn’t matter if someone knows how to cook a turkey. They still want to see how somebody else does it.

“If I decide I’m tired of the same recipes, I’m being a damn fool,” Julian said, “because nobody else is.”

With Easter, you can stretch a bit, she said. For Fourth of July, anything American is game, and people have different traditions for Christmas.

“Thanksgiving is the same menu every year,” she said. “You can add lemon rind to the brussels sprouts and you can add Dijon mustard to the brussels spouts and you can mash the potatoes with a special masher and make them more mashed, but essentially, it’s pretty much the same menu.”

I emailed several other food editors and asked them all the same question — what’s the one Thanksgiving food feature you’d love to stop running? Here’s what they said:

Bonnie Benwick, deputy food editor/recipe editor, The Washington Post

“I can’t think of any Thanksgiving features that I’m tired of doing – must be a rare bird, in that respect. (Stop the presses! Just thought of something – riffs on the crunchy onion-strewn green bean casserole. Over it.) But if I never had to edit or write another “Ham or Lamb?” episode for Easter, I’d be a happy camper.”

Kristen Aiken, executive editor, HuffPost Taste:

“‘Light Thanksgiving Recipes.’ It’s ONE day, can’t we give ourselves a break for ONE day? Though it’s a holiday that’s supposed to revolve around being thankful for the blessings of a good harvest, let’s be real — it’s all about stuffing. Ourselves. With food.”

J.M. Hirsch, food editor, Associated Press:

“I took over as AP food editor about 10 years ago. One of the Thanksgiving features I inherited was an annual roundup of cooking hotlines for home cooks to call when they need help roasting their turkeys or rescuing soggy pie crusts. It was awful to assemble. There were so many numbers, and at least half of them would change every year. I muscled through it for a couple years until it dawned on me just how outdated a concept it was. If people need help with their birds or baking, they’re going to Google it on their phones. So I killed that feature and never looked back. I haven’t run it for years now, but I still get the calls every September by the hotline people asking if I’ve changed my mind. And that would be a no.”

Miriam Morgan, food editor, San Francisco Chronicle:

“Thanksgiving in general is a real challenge. And that’s an understatement. How to say something new each year, when there is very little new and readers really just want you to hold their hand through the basic meal. Every year we go round and round about what to do differently, and it can seem forced. We always seem to come up with something fun, though. This year it was Tyler Florence’s spatchcocked turkey with stuffing under the skin. A real winner.
One year, we tested about 30 turkeys to compare and contrast the best way to roast (brined, air-dried). That was probably 10 years ago, and it’s still our fall-back, foolproof method. But bottom line? I wish we could skip Thanksgiving entirely!”

Sheryl Julian, food editor, The Boston Globe:

“I hate to say it, but the dreaded story is every holiday.” Read more

HuffPost fellow learns lessons from Ferguson

Stewart.

Stewart.

When she began covering Ferguson, Mariah Stewart didn’t own a gas mask. She remembers looking with confusion at protesters who carried bandanas to ward off tear gas.

“I was like, ‘why are they doing that?’” Stewart said. “There’s already been a tear gas incident.”

A lot has happened since then.

After freelancing for Beacon Reader, Stewart was selected in August to be the Huffington Post’s first Ferguson fellow, working in tandem with reporter Ryan Reilly to report the ongoing story of what has happened since Michael Brown’s shooting.

Since she started for The Huffington Post, Stewart has had to learn a few things: she’s found new tools to do her job, gotten better at dealing with reader criticism and gained experience navigating the delicate relationship with her sources.

One recent lesson came after Stewart quoted a statement from St. Louis County Police saying that protesters “blocked the passage of an ambulance on an emergency run.” Readers responded with tweets showing video that contradicted the police report and asked her to change the story:

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 1.57.57 PM

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 2.00.18 PM

Several of the people who tweeted at her about the error apologized to her in direct messages after she acknowledged the inaccuracy and fixed the story. Still, the sudden influx of critical tweets was scary.

“I quickly learned that not everyone’s going to love your work,” Stewart said.

One of Stewart’s biggest worries from the episode was that protesters in Ferguson would begin distrusting her. Stewart says she has watched protesters stop talking to journalists who report on the protests critically or inaccurately.

“All of the coverage you’ve done, all it takes is one sentence to rub them the wrong way and you will get shunned,” she said.

Stewart has picked up a couple of reporting tools since she began covering Ferguson in early August. She’s chagrined to admit she didn’t know about Google Alerts before she started, and she’s gotten very familiar with collaborative editing using Google Docs.

Stewart has also gotten more savvy about the day-to-day life of full-time journalism. Although she still feels like “I don’t have an off button,” she reminds herself to take a break every once in awhile. She has also gotten better at separating her own opinion from analysis and coverage while giving media interviews after some coaching from Reilly.

“I’ve learned how to take myself out of the interview and answer like I’m writing an article,” she said.

Looking forward, Stewart wants to become a better-sourced reporter by cultivating relationships with more St. Louis-area decision-makers. She acknowledges that she still has a long way to go.

“I’m learning every day,” she said.

And at least now she has a gas mask. Read more

In Hong Kong, Apple Daily gets to deliver papers after days of blockades

Wall Street Journal | The Huffington Post | Committee to Protect Journalists

Readers in Hong Kong should get their copy of the pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily on Friday.

For several days, “mobs have surrounded Apple Daily’s offices to intimidate staff and prevent distribution of the paper,” the Wall Street Journal wrote in an opinion piece on Tuesday.

Early Monday morning they blocked delivery trucks from exiting the complex by parking a tractor-trailer across the gate. Apple Daily staff eventually used a crane to load newspapers onto different trucks across a back wall, so newsstands got copies after a delay of about six hours.

This tweet, from the Journal’s Isabella Steger, says the papers made it out on Thursday night.

And from Bloomberg’s Fion Li:

On Monday, Apple Daily posted this image on its Facebook page, with an apology to readers who didn’t get their newspapers.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

On Wednesday, Matt Sheehan wrote for Huffington Post’s The World Post about blocked deliveries and the paper itself.

With one of the largest readerships in Hong Kong, Apple Daily is known for its defiant pro-democracy positions, shrill and sensational reporting style, and occasionally lax standards for fact-checking.

The paper is run by brash media mogul Jimmy Lai, a man who makes no secret of his deep loathing for the Chinese government. As a 12-year-old, Lai smuggled himself out of famine-stricken China in 1960 and into Hong Kong. There, he went on to build a clothing and media empire that he now deploys in a running grudge match with Beijing. His paper subsidizes pro-democracy advertisements and has in the past printed two-page spreads that can serve as anti-government banners at protests.

While some local journalists cringe at what they see as the paper’s affinity for gossip and sex scandals, they say it remains one of the few bulwarks against a creeping pro-Beijing influence in Hong Kong media.

Sheehan includes this video from Wednesday, with Apple Daily employees and anti-occupy protesters.

On Thursday, Bob Dietz wrote for the Committee to Protect Journalists about “Hong Kong’s media battlefield”, including how journalists have been treated. Dietz also writes that while the Apple Daily has been physically blocked, it has had to fight online, too.

Tuesday, spokesman Mark Simon told a reporter who has been working with CPJ, “More disturbing to us than the street protests is the continued denial of service attacks on our website. At times they bring down our website for up to an hour.”

Who is carrying out the attacks? “We always had a good firewall, which we have improved upon. That makes us think the attacks on us are of a governmental scale. Our audience tends to be local and across the border. We certainly believe attacks are coming from the entity that would most benefit from silencing Next Media [Apple's parent company]. That’s what we’ll say on the matter,” Simon said.

Here’s a Twitter list of journalists covering the protests in Hong Kong. Read more

Jill Abramson would like a magazine job

mediawiremorningGood morning. We’re almost there. Here are 10 media stories.

  1. Area man to appear on television: Chuck Todd will interview President Obama for his first episode of “Meet the Press” on Sunday. (Politico)
  2. HuffPost won’t talk about Jimmy Soni: HuffPost parent AOL was investigating allegations of sexual harrassment by its former managing editor, J.K. Trotter reports. (Gawker) | “Rumors have been swirling inside the company for the past couple of months about Soni’s alleged inappropriate behavior with female Huffington Post fellows.” (Capital)
  3. ONA bends to pressure on its Ferguson panel: “We did not intend to overlook great work at the local level,” Trevor Knoblich writes. “We began today looking for a local person to add to our session.” (ONA) | Earlier: “Why are no local outlets represented in ONA’s Ferguson keynote?” (Poynter) | Related: Kristen Hare is still curating her Twitter list of people reporting from Ferguson.
  4. L.A. Times reporter shared drafts of stories with CIA: Ken Dilanian tells Ken Silverstein he “shouldn’t have” sent stories to CIA spokespeople before he ran them, and he “wouldn’t do it now.” He’s now an AP reporter. AP spokesperson Paul Colford told Silverstein AP is “satisfied that any pre-publication exchanges that Ken had with the CIA before joining AP were in pursuit of accuracy in his reporting on intelligence matters,” and that “we do not coordinate with government agencies on the phrasing of material.” (The Intercept) | Remember quote approval? Jeremy W. Peters reported in 2012 about the practice. (NYT) Many news orgs distanced themselves from it. (Poynter) | Former Washington Post reporter Daniel de Vise got in hot water later that month when Texas Observer revealed he had shared drafts with sources. (Texas Observer) | Then Post Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli clamped down on the practice. (Poynter) | In August of that year, NYT reporter Mark Mazzetti sent an advance copy of a Maureen Dowd column to a CIA spokesperson. (Politico)
  5. Stock of Politico article on Glenn Greenwald drops: An intensely weird Politico Magazine piece that claims “Greenwald Inc. has already peaked,” offering evidence like this: “‘I think there’s a bit of Snowden fatigue out there right now,’ said former NSA director Michael Hayden.” (Politico) | The story “is terrible, in precisely seven ways.” (WP) | “So Glenn Greenwald, having been up—on the strength of Edward Snowden’s decision to trust him with a collection of leaked classified documentation of the NSA’s immense and all but unchecked mass surveillance program—is due to be down. Because the NSA has stopped spying on everyone, hasn’t it?” (Gawker) | Dylan Byers: “I’m of the opinion, and was of the opinion, that [Greenwald] peaked more than a year ago.” (Politico)
  6. Time Inc. chief hints at a plan: CEO Joe Ripp “said he is taking cues from National Geographic’s transformation from a sleepy not-for-profit print publication into a ‘multimedia powerhouse’ in cable television and online.” (Re/code) | Related: At the same conference, Jill Abramson said, “I would like to be working at the highest quality kind of magazine.” (Re/code) | “As she took the stage, seated across from her interviewer, Re/code cofounder Kara Swisher, some in the audience could see she was wearing a piece of statement jewelry: a necklace shaped to spell the word ‘pushy.’” (Capital)
  7. Why Mike came back to Bloomberg: “The goal of increasing the company’s visibility is not about satisfying the former mayor’s ego, Mr. Doctoroff and others say, but rather increasing the demand for terminals,” Jonathan Mahler writes. “The logic is that the more visible Bloomberg becomes, the more likely newsmakers will be to give its reporters news that moves markets.” (NYT) | “Mr. Bloomberg is returning to a more competitive marketplace than the one he left in 2002 and to increasingly strained relations with the financial institutions that make up the company’s core customer base.” (WSJ)
  8. Adieu, Twitpic: “Unfortunately we do not have the resources to fend off a large company like Twitter to maintain our mark which we believe whole heartedly is rightfully ours.” (Twitpic Blog)

Wiegel, Bazelon leave Slate

Huffington Post | Capital | Slate

Emily Bazelon and Dave Weigel will leave Slate, continuing a shakeup that began after former editor David Plotz stepped down as top editor in July.

Bazelon, a senior editor for Slate since 2005, will be a staff writer for New York Times Magazine, where she has been a contributor, according to a release from The Times.

In a statement, New York Times Magazine editor Jake Silverstein said he was “giddy” about the hire.

Weigel will join Bloomberg’s as-yet unnamed politics vertical, Michael Calderone reports for The Huffington Post.

Wiegel wrote about his departure from Slate, saying that his move was inspired by his appreciation for the team at Bloomberg:

This is still my favorite magazine and I’m only leaving it because Bloomberg’s putting together — I will try to avoid corporate-speak — an ambitious political magazine run by the sort of geniuses who made Bloomberg Businessweek into a great print mag, and New York’s political coverage a daily must-read.

Texas Monthly BBQ editor travels ‘from one end of the state to the other eating smoked brisket’

mediawiremorningHappy Labor Day weekend. Andrew Beaujon’s back on Tuesday. Thanks for reading this week.

  1. Ask him about his cholesterol: The nation’s only full-time barbecue editor — no, he doesn’t weigh 400 pounds — understands why readers are obsessed with his health: “My job requires that I travel from one end of the state to the other eating smoked brisket, one of the fattiest cuts on the steer. And I can’t forget to order the pork ribs, sausage, and beef ribs,” Daniel Vaughn writes. Former Texas Monthly editor in chief Jake Silverstein says Vaughn has “figured out how to make the barbecue lifestyle compatible with staying above ground.” (Texas Monthly)
  2. What to do when you’re arrested: Whether it happened in Ferguson or elsewhere, first you should call the station where you were booked to get your arrest report. If necessary, file a FOIA request, Kristen Hare reports. (Poynter)
  3. Ideas for redesigning breaking-news experience: Although Twitter has driven the Ferguson story, the platform could still do a better job at handling breaking news. Brandon Schmittling has some suggestions. Here’s one: “Add a check mark next to any link that you’ve already visited.” (Fast Company)
  4. James Foley’s captors waterboarded their prisoners: “The Islamic State beheaded Foley last week in apparent retaliation for U.S. airstrikes on Iraq, where the militant group has seized large swaths of territory. The group, which also controls parts of Syria, has threatened to kill another American, journalist Steven J. Sotloff.” (Washington Post) | Related: Earlier this month, Dean Baquet shifted his newsroom’s stance on calling waterboarding “torture.” (The New York Times) | Previously: The Times “tied itself in linguistic knots during the Bush years to avoid describing waterboarding as torture,” Michael Calderone wrote in 2012. (Huffington Post)
  5. HuffPost to host political debate: “Given the potential for brand growth and influence, and the migration of viewers to online video, an increasing number of newer, digital players jumping into the fray seems likely,” Joe Pompeo reports. (Capital New York)
  6. Twitter adds analytics for all: Just go to analytics.twitter.com and see how many people are really viewing and clicking your tweets. (Twitter)
  7. Are newsrooms obsessed with clicks? After two years of ethnographic research into the use of newsroom analytics, Angele Christin found journalists have a complex relationship with tracking traffic: “Many writers express cynical views about traffic and say that they do not care about page views. Yet they almost always check whether they are in the ‘top ten’ most read articles list.” (Nieman Lab)
  8. What bothers Mathew Ingram about pundits who claim the Internet is making journalism worse? “It’s the failure to appreciate that the complaints they have are the same ones that have been made about journalism for decades — combined with the unrestrained longing for some mythical golden age of journalism.” (GigaOm)
  9. ‘Rosewater’ trailer debuts: In the movie, written and directed by Jon Stewart, “Gael Garcia Bernal stars as Maziar Bahari, a journalist who was arrested and tortured in Iran for 118 days in 2009.” (Huffington Post)
  10. Newspaper front page of the day: The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune, selected by Kristen Hare. (Newseum)
