Is The Guardian Holding Back The New York Times’ Snowden Stories?

The Guardian UKA source at the Times tells The Daily Beast the paper feels ‘shackled’ over The Guardian’s total control over the cache of Edward Snowden NSA documents—and how they are used.

The Brits and the Yanks have long enjoyed a “special relationship,” and the bond between The Guardian and The New York Times is certainly special.

But when it comes to printing stories based on top-secret documents supplied by Edward Snowden, the relationship between the British and American media outlets occasionally seems frayed as well.

Snapchat videos and pictures stored on a third party website posted online

snapchatVideos and pictures of as many as 200,000 teenagers posted via the Snapchat service and stored on a third-party website have been put online, apparently by the same people who were behind the posting of nude celebrity photos in August.

The photos and videos were captured after some users of Snapchat – a mobile phone app which allows people to send photos to each other but which delete themselves within seconds of being viewed – were tempted into using a site called “Snapsaved.com”. That offered to let them use the service on a website on a desktop computer, rather than just on a mobile phone.

How Fox News Picks and Chooses Who Gets Labeled a 'Terrorist'

Eric FreinFox News is increasingly fixating on the gruesome  workplace beheading last week in Moore, Oklahoma by a recent Muslim convert, suspect Alton Nolen. Perhaps sensing a way to once again  fan its patented flames of  Islamophobia while simultaneously blaming President Obama for being indifferent to the threat of terrorism, Fox is treating the murder as a national story with sweeping political implications.

Sounding the jihadist alarms, Fox News and the right-wing media are eager to label the ghastly crime an act of Islamic terror. Law enforcement officials, however,  aren't in the same rush, noting that the attack came immediately after Nolen was fired and stating that they've yet to find a link to terrorism. While that story continues to play out, it's worth noting that an actual act of political terror remains in the news. It's just not a priority for Fox.

New York Times Announces Deep New Round Of Staff Cuts As Digital Initiatives Stall

NY Times In a sign of the persistent challenges facing the newspaper industry, the New York Times is planning to make deep cuts in its newsroom staff, executives announced Wednesday. More troublingly for the paper, its attempts to gain new sources of revenue through digital products appear to be stalling badly.

The Times said it would seek to eliminate roughly 100 jobs in the newsroom, through either buyouts or layoffs. Additional reductions are expected in the editorial and business departments.

The cuts have been widely expected for weeks.

Which Deaths Matter? How the media covers the people behind today's grim statistics

Media coverage of worldwide deathsThe past several months have been scarred by international crisis and turmoil, from strife in Gaza to the downing of Flight MH17 and the gruesome murders of the American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

News is so grim that The Washington Post recently published an accounting of what it called “the hideous carnage wreaked” between June and early September: an untold number killed in Syria (where the civil war’s death toll may now exceed 200,000, though the UN has stopped counting); more than 5,500 killed in Iraq; over 1,500 killed in Ukraine; and nearly 2,000 killed by Ebola in West Africa. An estimated 550,000 to 1.4 million people could be infected with Ebola by January in a worst-case scenario.

Glenn Greenwald: Media Way Overhyped Khorasan Group Threat

Glenn GreenwaldWhen the United States suddenly announced last week that it had attacked a militant group called Khorasan, many observers wondered where, exactly, these people had come from.

"Extraordinary - military strikes against a group no WH official had ever publicly mentioned by name," ABC's Jon Karl noted.

That didn't stop the headlines about the group's fearsome powers from piling up everywhere—along with lots of "explainer" posts so that people could actually know what was being discussed.
