Mistake means New York Times series debuts early in Las Vegas Sun

Las Vegas Sun | Politico | Gawker |The New York Times

A star-crossed New York Times story is back on the Las Vegas Sun’s website Monday morning. The Sun published the story early, then said it pulled it. You can see it now with a timestamp of 3:22 p.m. on Sunday, and many notes to editors at New York Times News Service clients:

New York Times editor Carolyn Ryan may have inadvertently caused people to notice the goof by praising an imminent new series.

 

Then Ryan said she was headed home to watch “Homeland.” Less than an hour and a half later, BuzzFeed reporter Andrew Kaczynski found a summary of the series on the Las Vegas Sun’s site.… Read more

Politico CEO will know ‘within 18 months’ whether Capital is on right track

Bloomberg Businessweek

Politico’s relaunch of Capital, the New York publication it purchased earlier this year, will test the Arlington, Va.-based publication’s model in a much different media market, Felix Gillette writes. “I do think the incrementalism that has helped make their coverage a must-read on the BlackBerrys of Washington may not help them as much on the iPhones of New York,” New York Times media reporter David Carr tells Gillette.

Capital’s strategy involves three subscription-only “Pro” verticals. It will “face similar pressure to perform” as TBD.com, a free publication Politico owner Robert Allbritton “quickly pulled the plug” on, Gillette notes. “Within 18 months we’ll know whether or not this is on a trajectory to being successful and scalable,” Politico CEO Jim VandeHei tells him.… Read more

NYT corrects: Politico is not a newsletter

The New York Times

Michael Kinsley’s review of “Double Down” “referred incorrectly to the printed edition of Politico,” the Times’ correction page says. “It is a newspaper about politics that is published five times weekly when Congress is in session; it is not a ‘biweekly newsletter.’ ”

Kinsley used to work for Politico. His assertion that Politico was a newsletter was noted by several current employees, including Byron Tau.… Read more

Jill Abramson: Politico piece was ‘shoddy,’ ‘nutty’

In the keynote talk at the Journalism & Women Symposium’s Conference and Mentoring Project in Essex, Vt., Saturday, New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson talked about the reaction of women journalists to an April Politico piece that said she was “on the verge of losing the support of the newsroom.”

It was thrilling,” Abramson said about the people who came to her defense, “like a prairie fire among, like, other women journalists who just, like, saw this thing as, like, a shoddy, sexist, you know, ad feminem attack on me.”… Read more

Jill Abramson on new Politico executive editor Rick Berke: ‘I look forward to competing against him again’

Politico

New York Times senior editor and director of video content development Rick Berke will become the executive editor of Politico, Politico Editor-in-Chief John Harris told staff Thursday. “This is really great news for POLITICO,” Harris writes.

“Rick Berke is one of the most distinguished political journalists of our time,” New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson said in a statement emailed to Poynter by a Times spokesperson. “He is also a great friend and we have worked closely together since 1997. We have also competed against each other as reporters and I look forward to competing against him again. Politico is lucky to have him as executive editor.”

Berke will not run the newsroom day-to-day, Harris writes in his memo: His “emphasis will be to help the entire team think broadly about the news.”

He is going to be a very engaged presence in the newsroom, sharing his ideas and listening to other people’s.

Capital editor: ‘I’m not going to sleep for the next couple of years’

With its acquisition by Politico Publisher Robert Allbritton, the New York website Capital will go on a hiring spree, adding 20 or so journalists to its coverage of New York power centers.

“Out of the gate that means media and politics,” Capital co-editor Tom McGeveran said in a phone call with Poynter, “with politics getting about twice as much firepower as media because it will be divided between New York City and Albany.”

But media coverage will grow substantially, too. Right now, McGeveran said, the media desk focuses on the way New York outlets interact with New York — like Joe Pompeo’s relentless coverage of the New York Post or McGeveran’s New York Times Kremlinology.

“We’ve sort of made it about local news and not media that is based in New York,” McGeveran said.… Read more

Politico, Philadelphia Inquirer & The Wrap all launch redesigns

Politico has chosen two new typefaces “designed specifically for newsprint’s narrow column measures,” its editors write in a note about its print product’s new look.

These new fonts, which are slightly more condensed than the old ones, will allow for more photographs and information graphics on inside pages. And Escrow will allow the paper to fully embrace S-E-Q-U-E-S-T-R-A-T-I-O-N in headlines.
