Spotlight newsroom: Stars and Stripes
With all the recent clamor over #BrianWilliamsRemembers, we'd like to take a second to highlight the publication that started it all: Stars and Stripes. An American newspaper devoted to reporting on issues affecting the armed forces, Stars and Stripes actually operates from inside the U.S. Department of Defense yet remains editorially separate from it with 1st amendment protection overseen by Congress. Boasting what's arguably "the most dangerous paper routes in the world," this newsroom puts out four daily print editions for military service members serving overseas and seven digital editions. The most highly followed journalist there is Josh Smith, Afghanistan and Middle East Correspondent, followed by Carlo Munoz, Defense and National Security Writer and Staff Writer in the Middle East Bureau; Jennifer Hlad, West Coast Reporter; Alex Pena, Foreign Correspondent; Heath Druzin, Veterans Reporter; and of course, last but not least, Travis J. Tritten, Capitol Hill Reporter.
Understandably, Tritten's latest, "In his words: Brian Williams’ interview with Stars and Stripes" with 770+ shares is the highest trending article for this newsroom at the moment while the newsroom's most active journo on Twitter this morning is Audrea Huff, Pacific Web Producer.
