Media double feature

Dec 09, 2013

Christine Haughney writes in the New York Times that Quips Follow Denver Post’s Naming of Marijuana Editor, but Its Intent Is Serious. Joe Drape there wrote, “Denver Post is Taking its Marijuana Beat Seriously. Staffing up & currently looking for a Pot Critic. Pretty good gig.” Jim Brady at Digital First Media tweeted: “If anyone thinks @denverpost isn't serious about cannabis coverage, feel free to check out its 4 straight Pulitzers.”

For a double feature from Christine Haughney, read Magazine Assistants Add Social Media to Scheduling and Coffee Runs. Joanna Coles at Cosmopolitan tweeted: “Coffee, tea, vodka....@SergioKletnoy tells @nytimes what it's really like to work for @JoannaColes @Cosmopolitan.” Colleague Michelle Ruiz said, “The hed of this @nytimes piece should really be ‘@SergioKletnoy: King of All Executive Assistants.’” George Musser at Scientific American wondered: “In what universe do magazine editors have assistants who go get coffee for them? Not mine, for sure.” Pat Kiernan with NY1 called it an “Excellent glimpse into the life of @JoannaColes and her assistant Sergio Kletnoy in NY Times.” Linda Stern from Reuters added, “Social media expertise now qualifies you to be… a magazine editor's assistant.”
