Kelly Whines It Up

ray-kelly
December 23, 2013 – If, as Gilbert and Sullivan wrote, a policeman’s lot is not a happy one, pity poor Ray Kelly. After 12 years as the longest-serving and most powerful police commissioner in New York City history, Kelly feels he is departing One Police Plaza misunderstood and unloved. Read full article here.

A Riposte to Colleague Bernard Stein’s Things Are Great With D:F/M Journalism – Part I

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

Serious journalism and media students on this campus don’t realize, or maybe “don’t imagine” is a better phrase, with whom they are competing  for the best internships. It’s not just students from City University of New York or NYU and Fordham and other local higher ed institutions but The Ivy League, The Big Ten, Rutgers, The Big 12 and more. That’s because New York City is the nation’s media mecca and attracts the attention of fortune hunters from around the country if not the globe.

That realization caused this writer to connect early on with organizations like the Center for Communication, The Business Press Education Foundation, The American Society of Magazine Editors, New America Media, The Independent Press Association (now defunct), The Robert McCormick Foundation, The Ford Foundation, The Foreign Press Association of New York, the Poynter Institute and numerous others.

It also was the primary reason for starting the WORD. So, when a Colleague trumpets thef message (see below) celebrating D:F/M’s debauched journalism effort, I struggle to suppress the scream.
