    If It’s Not Broke, Don’t Fix It, Or Else 

    A number of journalism outlets have discussed an error and subsequent correction which steamed from an article written by Washington Poststaffer Akeya Dickson. 

    In her article Dickson refers to Public Enemy’s song “911 Is A Joke”. A copy editor unaware of the song and it’s discussion of the emergency telephone number, assumed 911 should have referred to the 9/11 terror attacks. The change in the article led to some confusion, and criticism of the reporter.

    You can read about the fallout here. One of the things I find most interesting about this is as Dickson puts it, the disconnect between generations. She correctly states that the divide must be bridged, and that there’s a lot of work which must be done if we aim to have culturally sensitive reporting.

    Also, what do you think of the Post’s policy of assigning collective blame for errors, which some say unfairly impacts those who don’t directly causes errors in the publication?

    Journalist turned author Helena Andrews may have penned a black version of "Sex and the City"

    Helena Andrews may be the latest journalist turned author turned screenwriter who makes it big, and this time Andrews could make it big in Hollywood.

    A new Washington Post article highlights Andrews decision to take her personal odyssey with the dating life in D.C. very public. The article begins, “Helena Andrews is 29, single, living in D.C., and might be the star of a black “Sex and the City” — stylish, beautiful and a writer desperately in search of love in the city.”

    So check out what Andrews told The Post about her decision to write her memoir “Bitch Is The New Black”, the impetus behind the endeavor, and how it’ll soon be turned into a movie by the creator of Grey’s Anatomy.

      or does). I have talked with her cslaauly and at times she has brought up our past relationship, including how our love-life was, and also asks if I have dates and such. So it is obviously something that she is concerned with and has mentioned to me things like how would it effect me if we got back together knowing that she has been with this bf or questions like what if my ex gf or someone else came along. Now she has told me she wants this but it will take time, she also stated that she was very confused because she loves her BF now and doesnt want to hurt him with her decision. Now we have been talking, but she will only allow for texting (only speaking on the phone once in 6 weeks). Ok, well she suddenly starts becoming a little distant over the last two weeks. So from advice of friends I was instructed to back off and give her some space. So I do but I write her the following email on tuesday morning so she knows i am not giving up or anything: startI assume that the lapse in communication between us is really your way to give yourself the space and time you had talked about needing for us to be together again.With that in mind, I am going to (with all my heart) honor that with a hope that you will talk to me when you are ready.Know I think about you and love you so much. endNow I havent heard anything back until wednesday night to which she sends me the following email startHey! I hope everything is going well. How did Meg handle the funeral? Is she doing okay? I have just been busy working and trying to straighten a few things out. Hope you are doing good. Jess endSo i respond immediately with the follwoing: start- everything is great. just went under contract on a house. it is NIIIIIIICE! and i am getting a deal too. meg started school today. i am getting things together to start school in a few.- she didnt go to the funeral. we went to the wake and she couldnt take it another day so we went to meet the teacher day and then after we went to the gathering after the burial.- yep she is ok. that girl can take anything. even her cast doesnt seem to bother or slow her down- well i hope all is going well with that (referencing the things needing to be straightened out) and you. endi received another text from her just asking how my daughter and i are doing and saying that she hopes i had a great day. I responded back. and I got another text from her that basically said sounds good, well i am off to bed. you two have a good night So i have been receiving some text some e-mails, but basically general in nature. Today I saw on her myspace that her BF is taking her to the gulf, but i got a message from her this morning. that doesnt mean it isnt happening tonight, but i want to send her something that says like what are you doing? why arent you trying like you said you would?Since then I havent heard anything.My friends tell me to leave it be. Be a man of your word and give her space. Other have told me it is a good sign she wrote back and even better that she is still asking questions.I just guess i am wound too tight right now. I love this woman more then she or I know and she hasnt given me a chance to prove to her how 1) sorry i am 2) how it will never happen again 3) how much i love her, and 4) how happy we can be together.Please advise me. Please guide me. Thank you for all the positive and constructive help.

    Uncovering The Experience of Being “Black In America” 

    CNN's Soledad O'Brien {From CNN.com}

    CNN's Soledad O'Brien {From CNN.com}

    CNN and their special correspondent Soledad O’Brien are at it again.

    For the second straight summer CNN is all about the issues affecting black America with “Black In America 2” .

    It’s the latest in debt look by the mainstream media at black America.

    There was The Washington Post’s “Being A Black Man“, NBC News’s “Where They Stand” on African American women, and PBS’s “The Masculinity Project” on black masculinity.

    CNN’s second try is also a response to some of the criticism they faced by focusing some of the issues which affect the black community from poverty, to educational inequity, to growing HIV and AIDS rates, and a staggering incarceration rate.

    This time however aside from only focusing on the perceived negatives, CNN wants to know whose trying to right the wrongs, and what they’re doing to create change.

    CNN’s Soledad O’Brien reports the in depth series.

    The critiques from journalists are now coming I think the piece by The Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik gave an overview of the project while the piece by The St. Petersburg Times’ Eric Deegans stated why the effort might give some pause.

    Tonight CNN has a town hall at 7 p.m. and then a two hour premier of part one of the documentary beginning at 9 p.m.

    You can catch the remainder of the event at 8 p.m. on Thursday night.

    For a preview check out this review.

    News Corp. Forms Diversity Council 

    News Corp. the parent company of Fox News but more widely known as one of the largest media conglomerates in the world has formed a new diversity council.

    The AP reports the announcement comes after talks with the NAACP and other civil rights organizations after the controversial chimp cartoon ran earlier this year in the NY Post.

    The cartoon was said to parody President Obama comparing him to a dead chimpanzee.

    Cartoonists said they didn’t mean to make fun of the President.

    Activists said it showed a lack of cultural sensitivity, and also underscored the need for more diverse newsrooms.

On the other hand, from everything that I have witnessed, I only hope as the commentary pile on that individuals keep on point and not get started on a soap box of the news du jour. Still, thank you for this excellent piece and whilst I can not really go along with the idea in totality, I value your standpoint.

    It’s been said before, though Washington, D.C. is often referred to as Chocolate City when it comes to those covering Washington, the city seems a little bit more vanilla.

    The Washingtonian Magazine’s June 2009 issue names what they call Washington’s “50 Top Journalists 2009“.

    Of note on that list are NYT’s Dean Baquet, WashPost’s Jonathan Capehart whose called a “rising star”, and WAMU’s Kojo Nnamdi.

    So who do you think is missing?

    {Thanks, faraichideya.com}

    Aspiring journalists are often told in this day and age that they should be able to work across platforms.

    For T.V. journalists the idea of a one man band comes to mind, though one man band reporters or producers are now called content creators, or producers.

    Still, what this new title dictates is that one should be able to do it all write a print style story, or blog, record an audio podcast, upload a video, or create a picture slideshow.

    Names such as Roland Martin are tossed about as examples, but before there was Roland there was Farai.

    Is CNN Really The Black Network? 

    CNN is sometimes called the black network.

    They have five black anchors, two black White House correspondents, and one black Pentagon correspondent. Those numbers exclude other black correspondents who work on beats as varied as politics, business, and entertainment.

    The network is also working on a highly touted documentary Black In America 2 which will air this July again taking what’s being called an unparalleled look at the black experience in America.

    However as HuffPost notes CNN and MSNBC are both being beat hands down by Fox News.

    Could CNN’s struggles to come up in the ratings be linked to the fact that they don’t have a black presence in their primetime lineup (with the exception of Roland Martin recently filling in for Campbell Brown during her maternity leave)?
