What we're reading this week...

We've got a busy show planned this Sunday when NPR's David Folkenflik returns to guest host 'Reliable Sources.' We'll look at this week's breaking news coverage of the Navy Yard shootings, but in the meantime, here are some additional stories that caught our eye this week:

‘Blogger considers suing The New York Post for insinuating she’s a racist’   Lifestyle blogger Aly Walansky found herself at the center of the Miss America controversy after a tweet she posted was picked up by The New York Post. Only problem? Her tweet, included in an article about racism following the crowning, was posted about a different contestant, roughly 20 minutes before 24-year-old Nina Davuluri was crowned this year’s Miss America. The Post later issued a correction, but Walansky told The New York Observer she’s now considering suing the Post following multiple email and twitter threats in the wake of the article.

‘Not all mass shootings are equal in the eyes of the media or the public’  That’s the premise behind Paul Farhi’s recent article in the Washington Post. By Wednesday, only 48 hours after the Navy Yard shooting, Farhi writes, many of the major network and cable news outlets had re-focused attention onto other players in the news. Citing past shooting tragedies like Newtown and Aurora, Farhi suggests that the criteria surrounding each plays a role in media coverage, writing, ‘the cynical truth is that the Navy Yard murders — we’ve yet to agree on the shorthand name for this event — had neither the kinds of victims nor the story that sustains media interest and public revulsion.’

‘BBC Newsreader mistakes photocopier paper for iPad live on air, just holds paper anyway’  Viewers tuning into Simon McCoy’s BBC newscast on Wednesday noticed something slightly askew. As McCoy began reading a story on police proposals, a wider camera shot revealed that the anchor was holding a ream of printer paper in his hands instead of his usual iPad. Not flustered in the least, McCoy continued reporting in a calm, professional manner. The BBC later issued a statement reading, “This morning as Simon McCoy was preparing to introduce this story, instead of picking up his tablet to hold as he went to air, he mistakenly picked up a ream of paper that was sitting next to it. In the rush of live news, he didn’t have an opportunity to swap the items, so simply went with it.”

'Lexus to air live ads, fueled by social suggestions, during NBC’s ‘Late Night’’   As Jimmy Fallon prepares to lead the ‘Late Night’ host slot on NBC early next year, it seems that advertisers are also preparing by trying out a different strategy. This week, Adage reports that when Fallon takes the reigns at 'The Tonight Show’ in 2014, Lexus also has plans to air several live commercials throughout the show. The new ad approach seeks to capitalize on heavy social media involvement from Fallon’s audience.

Tune in Sunday at 11a EDT.

    There are actually quite a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a nice point to carry up. I supply the ideas above as normal inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you bring up the place crucial factor shall be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I'm sure that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Each boys and girls really feel the influence of only a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

    It was some sort of contentment coming across your site the other day. I got here today hoping to find out new things. I was not dissatisfied. Your ideas upon different tactics on this topic were enlightening and a wonderful help to me. Much gratitude for leaving out time to create these things as well as for sharing your opinions.

    Just finished watching the Peter King interview on This week with George and couldn't believe my eyes when I noticed that King was using his interview time re: the Kenya terrorist attack to sell his books which were all strategically placed around and behind him. Distasteful for sure, but should ABC have control over something like that? Scores of victim and gallons of blood exploited for Mr. King's profit.
