Media people

Because we can seemingly only read things with numbers ahead of them, The Washington Post compiled an Outlook List of Things We Do Not Say. Rick Newman at Yahoo! News explained it’s a “Must-skim for editors and writers: 150 journalism clichés.”

The New York Observer published a bunch of text messages and we’re still not quite sure why. Tim Donnelly at the New York Post tweeted this quote from the story: "Manhattan media elites giggle that a story wld ever be entrusted to a – gasp – guy who works at an ice cream store.” Andrew Goldman at the New York Times said, “Compelling evisceration of ice cream kid but fact remains Observer far too compromised to attempt Schneiderman story.” The Guardian’s Oliver Burkeman explained, “So apparently, if you email or text @NewYorkObserver's editor, he might publish them all at any time?” Farhad Manjoo from the New York Times added: “Editor publishes all emails he and freelancer ever exchanged. That's nuts. And from now on I'm snapchatting my eds.”

Paul Krugman writes of Changes (Personal/Professional) in the Times this morning. He’s leaving Princeton and joining the Graduate Center at City University of New York as a professor in the Ph.D. program in economics. Congrats to him!
