Controversies in the news
A mere 90 companies are responsible for two-thirds of man-made global warming emissions, the Guardian's Suzanne Goldenberg tells us. Colleague Stuart Millar called it, "Another great @guardian scoop." But The Times' industrial correspondent Marcus Leroux was not so easily swayed: "Nothing to do with their customers?" Leroux later concluded the article contained "[i]nteresting stats, absurd conclusion."
At the Tampa Bay Times, Matt Baker published a scathing investigative piece on how Tallahassee police warned an alleged sexual assault victim not to pursue charges against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. "Not a good look, Tallahassee police," responded Tom Mantzouranis at Sports Illustrated. "Maybe this story has legs, after all," Newsweek's John Walters tweeted. Colleague Molly Moorhead tweeted approvingly, "@mattbaker keeps breaking news in the Jameis Winston sex assault allegation."
