The economic recovery hasn’t been as strong in every part of the U.S. as it has in Silicon Valley. With companies sending factories overseas and older people relocating to more sunny regions, many cities in the northern US are experiencing slow economic growth. Cleveland is one of them. Listed as second highest on the Distressed Community...
digital journalism, workplace, office, desk
Digital journalism is in a state of upheaval to say the least. Last summer, the New York Daily News let go of about half of the people staffing its newsroom. In the last few weeks, thousands of journalists have lost their jobs at well-known media outlets such as Yahoo, Vice, Buzzfeed and Huffington Post, to name a few....
Although this anchorman should have been able to space the intro and the headlines better, it’s important for the teleprompter to have proper punctuation. This is Ken Bastida of KPIX, a CBS affiliate in the San Francisco Bay Area market, but maybe after this flub he should move down to the San Diego area because...
In yet another blunder for FOX News, last night they used a photo of Tina Fey from an SNL skit of former Governor Sarah Palin during a report. The report was on the Palin’s statement that she was 50/50 on running for president in 2012…let’s just say that I’d be more apt to vote in...
This reporter for FOX News might want to reconsider his wording for this particular story. Seems almost like he snuck that one in on purpose. What do you think? It still blows me away, all the errors and blunders that are made by professional news journalists. You’d imagine that with being on live TV every...
This NBC12 field reporter thought a quick shot with a friendly camel would be easy. Sometimes the easy assignments turn into the more interesting ones. I like how the cameraman was able to keep filming and help her with one hand…and how she asked if he was still rolling. Anything for the shot, right?
This might be the end-all-be-all in news reporter slip ups. I’d be surprised to see her on the air again anytime soon. Granted it’s easy to see how she could make the mistake…but over and over again. …and to report that the CIA ordered it. I do feel bad for her. I always get embarrassed...
With the Royal Wedding all wrapped up, there is/was a lot of specualtion on when and where the newlyweds are going for their Honeymoon (it’s been postponed while William returns to work for a week) but the odds favorites on most betting sites is New Zealand. One reporter thought she’d get the opinion of some...
With the speed of news now a days, it’s becoming increasing common to find typos from major news outlets. Sadly it’s more common than it should be. You would imagine that a site as high profile as NPR would not make these mistakes, but I guess with lack of funding this is the type of...
reporter ruins world record, reporter messes up world record
At the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, California, a group of bubbly people gathered. About 150 folks wanted to set a Guinness World Record for the most people to step inside a bubble. Fan Yang is the “bubble scientist” behind the feat. He helped organized and direct the people into the massive bubble of...
