Question of the Day
Yesterday's question of the day asked: What is less flattering, slang term for "immersion journalism?" The answer we were looking for was stunt journalism! It is similar but not quite the same as gonzo journalism, which is indeed also a slang term but, as many rightly pointed out, is not really a pejorative phrase.
Congratulations to Edirin Oputu who was the first and only person to get that answer! That was a tough one, so we'd like to also congratulate Ken Walker, who suggested "Schtick lit," Jeanne Kirk, Claudine Laforce, Lori Nash Byron, Tom Burton, Irene DeBlasio, Edward Tenner and Amy Zipkin, who all went with "gonzo journalism," and Judge Susan Sexton, who suggested "embedded."
As for today's question, here it is: One of the earliest films about news has to be "The Making of a Newspaper," a 1914 black-and-white, silent film featuring ... which publication?
