This week's final media mêlée

Oct 17, 2014

The topic on most journalists' lips this morning: Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter, who has been discharged from Navy Reserves after failing a test for cocaine (19,811 shares). "I liked it better in The Onion," admits freelance journalist Corey Pein.

Next: Hey, Twitter. Nobody likes the spirit of experimentation and the evolution of our home timelines, whatever that even means. (3,157 shares).

What we did like: Blake Griffin's journalistic debut at the Players Tribune, which was an impressive reflection on his feelings toward disgraced boss Donald Sterling (10,264 shares). "I thought it would be a long time before Jeter's website produced anything of value. I was wrong," VICE's Aaron Gordon confesses.

Finally, Tampa Bay Times journalist and national treasure Craig Pittman submits this ingenious bit of headlining into the Twittersphere: "I see what you did there, @TB_Times copy desk. Pretty slick."
