Ace in the Hole: Journalism Film Discussion Series Continues!

Journalism film series looks at the dark side of reporting Ace in the Hole’ examines fake news, ethics, and sensationalism, at the Latchis Theater, Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 4 pm.

 The history of journalism hasn’t always been honorable. It is littered with the stories of scoundrels willing to do anything for a story — anything at all.

Perhaps the best portrayal of an amoral, anything-for-a-scoop reporter is found in the filmic one-two punch that is Billy Wilder’s 1951 Ace in the Hole, starring Kirk Douglas.

 The Journalism Film Festival will show this witty yet brutal film at the Latchis Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 4 p.m. Admission is free, and donations are welcome.

The Latest Fashion Trend Is All About Your Data -- And Your Money

Five days ago, my former favorite magazine Nylon, a young woman's fashion magazine out of NYC, announced that they are ending their print edition, of which I am a subscriber. According to their press release, they will concentrate their (increasingly confused) efforts on their web and social media presence in their new role as "influencers."

You've probably heard about influencers with regard to hipsters on YouTube and Instagram, who leverage their status as high-traffic cool kids to present products provided to them by manufacturers so that other less cool people will buy them.

Newsless For A Week

We’re doing a media experiment. Lise is going without news for a week.

This started last Wednesday, and she’s been diligently avoiding headlines and talking heads. My role is to jot down the big headlines of the day, but not tell her. She’s allowed to look at weather forecasts.

I jokingly promised to warn her if a nuclear weapon was launched at Vermont (but not if it hit California or elsewhere...). Little did I know how closely I’d need to monitor that story.
