Paparazzi & Celeberati: All I am Saying Is Give Peace a Chance

(0) Comments | Posted June 14, 2005 | 1:00 PM

Item: Us Weekly magazine has announced that, effective immediately, it will no longer purchase paparazzi photos taken in a manner that may have endangered the subject.

That's a big, positive step to help cool the war between the most irresponsible members of the paparazzi and the most picture-resistant among the...

Let Tom Cruise Be Tom Cruise (Popular Scientologist/Actor)

(24) Comments | Posted June 6, 2005 | 6:52 PM

On the day that actor Russell Crowe got himself arrested for allegedly tossing a telephone at a hotel employee in New York City -- just the latest incidence of bad behavior by the petulent, hypertalented Aussie -- many who obssess over the film industry's bizarre-ness are still abuzz over some...

Regrets about a Fast Fade

(0) Comments | Posted June 2, 2005 | 8:08 PM

News about politics, scandals, and crime travels fast. A fine example was this week's revelation about "Deep Throat." It broke around mid-day here in the East. So while the cable-TV channels had it out there pretty quickly, I imagine millions of busy working folks learned of the Vanity Fair scoop...

Journalism Schools Can't Hurt, But Can They Really Help?

(0) Comments | Posted May 26, 2005 | 5:46 PM

I had a profoundly visceral reaction to today's news that five prestigious journalism schools are joining forces -- and, to some extent, checkbooks -- in the interest of producing a new generation, presumably a better generation, of reporters and editors.

On the one hand, how can anyone quarrel with...

Report from the World Magazine Congress

(0) Comments | Posted May 25, 2005 | 7:17 PM

Yesterday, bearing Huffington Post press tags (thus the first HuffPo contributor to be so adorned?), I attended the World Magazine Congress at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. I hung around with 900 or so magazine nuts, saw some old friends and colleagues, roamed the corridors in search of celebs, picked up...

Anonymous in Hollywood

(0) Comments | Posted May 23, 2005 | 6:00 PM

Maybe it's a sign of the perilous times in which we live, but everyone, it seems, wants to be anonymous these days. (Except screenwriters, who already are way too anonymous and, in their quiet desperation, seek a little attention, just a mention here and there, even when their films suck.)...

Now We Know: Saddam Wears Briefs

(0) Comments | Posted May 20, 2005 | 3:11 PM

So now it finally emerges -- the truth about Saddam Hussein's underwear. He wears briefs, white, probably knit.

Pictures of the nearly naked former dictator were splashed across the front page of two big newspapers Friday morning, one in London, the other in New York. Not surprisingly, both papers are...

Time Warner According to Dick Parsons

(0) Comments | Posted May 19, 2005 | 4:55 PM

To those who follow the ups and downs of media behemoth Time Warner, some comments made yesterday by CEO Dick Parsons will probably be of interest. Some may even be surprising.

Parsons spoke at a gathering of Time Inc. alumni, on the eighth floor of New York City's Time &...

Ann Coulter's Jaw Wired Shut

Ann Coulter is the butt of one of the more wildly popular -- and hideously base -- blogs on the Internet these...

Could Bloggers Have Spared Newsweek the Embarrassment?

(0) Comments | Posted May 16, 2005 | 11:17 AM

I get both Time* and Newsweek at my house, but not simultaneously. My habit has been to subscribe to Time for a year or two, then switch over to Newsweek. Just to keep a sense of impartiality around here and to monitor the competition between our two top national newsweeklies...

A Down 'n' Out Penthouse

(0) Comments | Posted May 13, 2005 | 4:41 PM

It's been a long time since anyone cared about Penthouse magazine, so word today that its new owner is trying like the devil to revive its nearly lifeless body did not exactly get me excited.

Still, when I read that the publisher plans to kill off all those raunchy...

Standing up for CNN's Aaron Brown

(2) Comments | Posted May 12, 2005 | 3:16 PM

It's an awful shame that Aaron Brown needs defending at all, but the fact of the matter is that the poor guy has got more than his share of vocal critics.

I once heard Walter Isaacson, then the president of CNN, tell a small audience that Brown was the...

Saying Goodbye to a Journalist

(0) Comments | Posted May 11, 2005 | 1:13 PM

A couple of nights ago, just before dropping into bed, I checked my e-mail inbox, as is my practice. I wish I hadn't.

One of the messages brought such horrible, sad news that it's been nearly impossible to think about much else since I read it. The e-mail, forwarded...

The Runaway Bride: Not Yet Dead

(0) Comments | Posted May 10, 2005 | 12:32 PM

This morning, as I exercised aboard my treadmill -- a pointless routine if ever there was one -- I scanned most of the TV-news-and-chat programs. Today, GMA, American Morning, some of the local shows here in New York. Even Imus, on MSNBC. I do this five times a week, usually...

The End of Magazines as We Know Them?

(0) Comments | Posted May 9, 2005 | 12:28 PM

I've spent the last several days contemplating -- and fretting about -- a piece that the writer Jesse Kornbluth contributed to last week. Its title: "The Internet Tail Will Come to Wag the Magazine Dog." His main point is that magazines as we know them are essentially dead...
