What we're reading this week

Station's Affront to Women- A Connecticut station has apologized for a questionable choice of video used in relation to a story about International Women’s Day. While an anchor detailed events to mark the day at the Connecticut Capitol, video was run that showed close-ups of women’s breasts. Fox CT released a statement on its Facebook page saying:

“FOX CT apologizes for mistakenly airing inappropriate file footage in conjunction with this morning’s report on Women’s Day at the Connecticut State Capitol. The video should never have aired. FOX CT will publicly apologize on today’s newscasts, as well as through our social media platforms. We are also implementing procedures to keep this from happening in the future. FOX CT is committed to recognizing and applauding the significant contributions of women, both in Connecticut and throughout the country.”

Money-making Mars Mission- The creators of the cult TV show “Veronica Mars” have raised more than $2.5 million through a campaign on the fundraising Website Kickstarter in order to bring the exploits of the teenage detective to the big screen.

Fans flooded the site with donations, raising the first $1 million in a record 4 hours and 24 minutes.

Warner Brothers, who produced the show had told creators Rob Thomas and Kristin Bell that there wasn’t enough interest to warrant a big-budget movie, but that they would be on board if they could demonstrate fan interest. (Warner Brothers is owned by CNN parent company Time Warner.) The show ended a 3 year on UPN and CW networks in 2007.

VP's Photo Wrong- Vice President Joe Biden’s office has apologized after forcing a student journalist to delete photos he had taken at an anti-domestic violence event in Maryland.

Reporter Jeremy Barr of Philip Merrill College of Journalism's Capital News Service had been sitting outside the designated press area when he took the photos. After the event, a Biden staffer forced Barr to delete the images. A letter of complaint was sent to Biden’s press secretary, Kendra Barkoff by Barr’s dean. Barkoff has since apologized by phone to Barr and Dean Lucy Dalglish.
