More on the media

Jul 31, 2015

Today's most meaningful trending media item, by far, is titled "Death of a Young Black Journalist," Sarah Stillman's haunting profile of 27-year-old Charnice Milton. "Charnice Milton reported on southeast DC. She also died there. @stillsarita does justice to her truncated life," praises TNR's Jamil Smith. Next up in news about news, Hillary Clinton's campaign officially lodges a complaint in the form of a letter to the New York Times' Dean Baquet decrying "egregious" reporting errors in its latest piece on the former Secretary of State's private email account. "This is a press release, not a letter to the editor," protests CNN's Ryan Lizza. Plus, The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald have joined the #IStandWithAdam campaign. "Something to put in your window tomorrow, Australia," suggests The Age's Michelle Griffin. Also, we'd like to commend WashPost for exposing the underbelly of underage sex scandal that is Vine. "Social media 'celebrities' have a seriously scary record of sexual harassment and assault," observes the authoring journalist Caitlin Dewey. Last but not least, the Financial Times does lunch with Mhairi Black.
