Mid-week media

Feb 12, 2014

Mikey Smith found the worst front page fails I've ever seen in The StarSachi nNakrani tweeted: “Rule One in journalism college: be aware of shocking juxtaposition, such as this.”

Mashable writes that Twitter is Testing a Major Redesign That Looks a Lot Like Facebook. Everyone surely has an opinion.

The Atlantic’s Derek Thompson points that Your Facebook News Feed Isn't for 'News'. Rubina Fillion at the Wall Street Journal explained: “2 years ago, Facebook and Google sent same traffic to @BuzzFeed. Now Facebook sends 3.5X more.” Basically, Facebook is for crap and fun.

In Talking Points Memo, Mike Allen Explains Politico's Mysterious 'Hot Hashtag'. Apparently, it’s "Part of what makes D.C. so D.C.!" So more inside speak then.

And for the opposite of a fail, here’s a photo of Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who plays Veep on the HBO show) with real-life actual veep Joe Biden last night. She called it “an unforgettable evening.” Patrick Coffee at Mediabistro tweeted: “Thought bubble: ‘Shoulda been Hilz.’” Jarett Wieselman at BuzzFeed put it in Twitter terms: “Veep & #Veep.” Cameron Atfield with the Brisbane Times was too excited for words (or rather just fell asleep on the keyboard) cause all we got was: “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
