    Mimi Valdés Out At BET.com 

    Mimi Valdés, former editor of Vibe and Latina magazines, is leaving Black Entertainment Television after only three months, a BET spokeswoman confirmed for Journal-isms on Wednesday.

    Valdés is BET’s vice president for content, supervising BET.com.

    In June, after Valdés was hired, BET.com was the most widely viewed Internet site catering to African Americans, according to ComScore, an Internet ratings service. But it lost half its unique visitors and slipped to third place among those sites in the September ratings, a ComScore spokeswoman said on Thursday. The site had also laid off six people.

    In June, BET received 3.5 million unique visitors, compared with 2.9 million for AOL Black Voices, 2.3 million for MediaTakeOut.com and 1.7 million for Black Planet.

    In September, the rankings were AOL Black Voices, 2,568,000; MediaTakeOut.com, 2,144,000; BET Networks, 1,702,000; and BlackPlanet.com, 1,695,000, according to the ComScore figures. Essence.com dropped from 968,000 to 943,000 unique visitors, and BlackAmericaWeb.com, which was not included in the June figures, had 343,000.

    “Mimi Valdés will be leaving BET Networks and we wish her the best in her future endeavors,” spokeswoman Jeanine Liburd said.

    What The World Is Saying About Juan Williams 

    NPR blew it by firing Juan Williams

    Williams used his liberal credentials to take an issue out of the closet, something a lot of us felt but were not supposed to acknowledge. It was liberal catharsis, sort of like Bill Cosby’s comments on the self-inflicted failure of so many inner-city youth and their parents.

    Allowing things to fester is not healthy. Covering your ears and walking off the stage — like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar did when O’Reilly blamed 9-11 on Muslims — is not healthy.

    As abhorrent as these views are to liberals, the majority of Americans relate to them. This discussion needs to take place openly and often. Otherwise it festers and blows up like it did at the so-called “Ground Zero mosque.”

    This is where NPR blew it. [SOURCE]

    NPR vs. Fox News: Juan Williams firing reveals deeper media fight

    Williams is an accomplished journalist and an expert on the civil rights era. But his on-air comments had become more openly opinionated in recent years, and this was why in 2008 his job title was changed from “news correspondent” to “news analyst.” On Fox, however, he was expected to be a pundit, performing alongside such provocative figures as Bill O’Reilly. There, the format is more likely to be shoot-from-the-lip.

    NPR’s reaction to the current episode is likely to prolong the controversy, certainly among fans of Fox and its most successful personality, Glenn Beck.

    Writes NPR ombudsman Shephard: “This latest incident with Williams centers around a collision of values: NPR’s values emphasizing fact-based, objective journalism versus the tendency in some parts of the news media, notably Fox News, to promote only one side of the ideological spectrum.” [SOURCE]

    Amy Barnett to Join EBONY as EIC 

    A little birdie is told J’Sticks that Amy DuBois Barnett (formerly of Honey & Teen People magazines) is now the EIC of magazine. For months now EBONY has been trying to make the right moves to stay alive in this harsh publishing market. There was the announcement that they would be focusing more on the web (this month’s cover with Niecy Nash features a masthead that only lists digital staffs but not editorial).

    Black Politics On The Web posted this “official statement” today:

    “I am extremely pleased to bring Amy DuBois Barnett on as part of the new leadership team,” said President and CEO Linda Johnson Rice. “She brings with her a wealth of experience, a keen journalistic eye and solid editorial judgment, which will serve well to help redefine the EBONY brand within the ever-changing marketplace.”

    Barnett is a Brown University graduate and also has a M.F.A degree in creative writing from Columbia University. She is the author of Get Yours: How to Have Everything You Ever Dreamed of and More, an NAACP Image Award-nominated book for Black women.

    EBONY has always represented the best of African-African achievement, society and culture, and I couldn’t be more honored to be at the helm as we enhance this icon for the 21st century,” said Barnett. “I’m excited to bring the EBONY brand to multiple media platforms and to engage new audiences who will surely be moved by its resonant, provocative and authoritative perspective on today’s African-American experience.” The new appointment will replace Harriette Cole as acting Editor-in-Chief and Creative Director.

    Esquire on Jay-Z = Epic Fail 

    jay-esquire

    Someone over at Esquire thought it’d be cool to write about Mr. Empire State. Can’t fault them there. He’s coming off a big year. But then they went and gave the writer, Lisa Taddeo, the greenlight to cover him this way:

    “Jay-Z is black black. He is old-school double-dark-chocolate-chunk black. He is black the way Labatt is blue. He is not white black, Barack black, like our president. Or the kind of black that doesn’t curse and deplores the n-word, the genteel black, like Oprah. He is, arguably, the first black-black guy to cross over into Oprah-land and Bill Clintonworld without making the Oprah-sized no-look-back forward flip that means you’re selling not necessarily your soul but perhaps something fleshier, a little more external.”

    To make matters worse, they highlighted the above text for dramatic affect. Before you go thinking that it’s only black people who are thinking WTF other’s have sounded off on Esquire missing the mark.

    Somali fashion, do-it-yourself henna kits, children’s books that draw inspiration from the lives of Barack Obama and Sonia Sotomayor: it’s not hard to find gifts created for and by people of color this holiday season. Here are some possibilities.

    This could be a case of when “keeping it real goes wrong”. Sure we all shop and knowing what to get for the holidays is key but making a separate list for people of color instead of incorporating it in the rest of the guide is a bit much…

      truly give carp the respect they deserve that will guarantee to give them the catches their strive so manically for.

      May I just say what a comfort to find somebody that truly knows what they’re discussing on the net.
      You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
      A lot more people must read this and understand this side of your story.

      I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you surely
      have the gift.

      From the dwelling substance to use to which alternative will fit within your budget, each element will matter when coming up with this expenditure.
      If any adhesive seeps between your tiles, clean having
      a cloth soaked in solvent. You can buy these furniture simply varnished, painted to fit a certain colour theme
      or simply just your personal preference, or buy them since it is in its natural oak colour.

    Essence Lays Off Digital Team [Updated] 

    After relaunching their website last week, Essence magazine laid off its web team today citing budgetary reasons.

    “They told us it was downsizing,” says one Essence employee. “We’re very confused. We worked so hard for the relaunch.”

    Another insider tells J’sticks: “This is normal practice. Companines relaunch with new [site] schemes that allow them to do more with less, then they cut staff.”

    In addition to letting go of the web team, Essence also let go of some magazine staffers.

    Update:

    The site’s managing editor, Emil Wilbekin, is still on staff. Steven Psyllos, deputy editor for Essence.com remains as does the photo editor.

    Otherwise the ENTIRE web team is gone, appx 12-15 ppl.

    4 cuts from Essence staff include: Fashion Assistant,Work & Weath Assistant, one of 3 deputy editors and a special projects director who’s been with the magazine since the 70s.

    Bloggers To Come Clean Starting Dec 1 

    FTC: Bloggers must disclose payments for reviews

    PHILADELPHIA — The Federal Trade Commission will require bloggers to clearly disclose any freebies or payments they get from companies for reviewing their products.

    It is the first time since 1980 that the commission has revised its guidelines on endorsements and testimonials, and the first time the rules have covered bloggers.

    But the commission stopped short Monday of specifying how bloggers must disclose any conflicts of interest.

    The FTC said its commissioners voted 4-0 to approve the final guidelines, which had been expected. Penalties include up to $11,000 in fines per violation.

    The rules take effect Dec. 1.
