It's fucking insane Andy Lack still has his job, just an absoute embarassment to every fucking person who's enabled him. Looks like he won't be lasting much longer.

Followup says it's just Splinter, not Splinter News, but not sure what that distinction means?

I would guess the Daily Beast article called it Splinter News not Splinter b/c of the URL (IIRC Univision couldn't get splinter.com)

This sucks. One of the few outlets doing adversarial journalism. Is there no union recourse?

Yo what is the take on Mel Magazine? They seem to do consistently interesting work, but also they're a side project of dollar shave club/Gillette? I have been kind of avoiding them because of it, but maybe it doesn't matter who's funding the writing as long as the writing is good and they're not like, totally evil? Inspired by this piece on Hawaii and colonialism https://melmagazine.com/en-us/story/haw ... ou-anymore

my lukewarm take is that people at NBC really believe that what ronan is doing is hostage-taking and not real journalism like they do

if you've ever reported on reporters, which i have, they are the quickest group in the world to shut the fuck up if they think the story won't be kind to them

Overall I’ve found the Lauren Duca saga delightful (outside of the part where she was being abusive to ESL students) but it feels like it’s about to take a dark turn

Good to see the journalism community coming together to finally do some rigorous self-examination over... Northwestern’s student paper?

yeah it's real bad

i think the fundamental thing is text messages still feel much more personal than a phone call or a reach-out on social media

this didn't warrant 2 minutes of thought, consideration or discussion though
