The video from which this gif was made grabbed headlines this year.
It’s been a big year for news.
The year isn’t quite over yet, but ’tis the season for yearly roundups and best-of lists, and in that spirit, Sports Illustrated‘s Richard Deitsch has compiled a list of the best journalism pieces published in 2017 (in his view, at least).
If you’re unfamiliar with Deitsch, he’s a writer and editor at SI. He also hosts the SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch, which I, as a journalist/nerd, particularly enjoy. I’ve never met him, but I’m impressed by his work.
Check out his list here.
Best to leave it to the pros, but an A for effort regardless!
Singer/musician John Mayer posted an Instagram story earlier this week attempting to correct a Huffington Post headline.
He was then gently corrected by numerous editors and reporters, who informed him that using figures for numbers actually *is* OK in a headline. (AP style, y’all. Learn it. Love it.)
Mayer took it in stride, gracefully admitting defeat in a reply and in a short thread of his own creation.
But hey, at least he’s reading!
The firing comes less than a year after the newspaper’s longtime executive managing editor, Roger Carroll, resigned after being ordered to remove facts from a story about the Telegraph‘s return to downtown Nashua after 30 years in Hudson, N.H.
Valley News columnist Jim Kenyon wrote a piece on Carroll’s ouster shortly after. Read it here.
