I have decided that I will not be able to serve a second term as a Successor Fellow of the Yale Corporation. I am reexamining my professional life and I have recognized that, in order to focus on the core of my work, I will have to shed some of my other responsibilities.Time and CNN journalist Fareed Zakaria • Revealing to Yale President Richard C. Levin his plans to resign from the school’s governing board, weeks after he received a major professional scare — getting suspended from his two main gigs after getting caught plagiarizing. (Both CNN and Time eventually accepted him back.) Zakaria likely had too much on his plate: “My service at Yale is the single largest commitment of time, energy, and attention outside of my writing and television work,” he also wrote in his note. Levin graciously accepted the note and thanked the journalist for his work.
If this is something young women look at and say, ‘I can do this,’ I think, ‘Absolutely, you can do this,’ I am all for that. But I think, first, I am a journalist, and this is just an amazing opportunity as a journalist…. And I am a girl.CNN host Candy Crowley • Regarding her chance to host the second of three presidential debates later this fall — a big deal because she’s the first woman to do so since the 1992 elections. ABC’s Martha Raddatz will also moderate the lone vice-presidential debate.
Into his conference call, the CNN producer says (correctly) that the Court has held that the individual mandate cannot be sustained under the Commerce Clause, and (incorrectly) that it therefore ‘looks like’ the mandate has been struck down. The control room asks whether they can ‘go with’ it, and after a pause, he says yes.SCOTUSblog’s Tom Goldstein • Looking back at what caused the mistaken reporting of the Supreme Court’s Affordable Care Act decision, in a minute-by-minute breakdown. In case you need something very epic to read, here you go — Goldstein’s post, which he claims is his first effort at “real journalism,” is 7,000 freaking words long. Or, you know, longer than the usual article we link. (ht Dave Weigel)
The only downside for us is if the message (to Sandusky) isn’t ‘heard’ and acted upon, and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it.An email allegedly sent by former Penn State President Graham Spanier • Laying out, in simple terms, what he saw as the “only downside” of not reporting Jerry Sandusky to the authorities, in an email allegedly sent between February 26th and 28th, 2001. CNN has stated they are not in possession of the emails, but had the contents made available to them, and that they could result in further legal charges — presumably against Spanier and the alleged recipient, former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley. source (via • follow)
Please, immediately, stop taunting on social networks about CNN and others’ SCOTUS ruling mistake and the AP getting it right. That’s not the impression we want to reflect as an organization. Let our reporting take the lead.Associated Press Central U.S. regional editor David Scott • In a memo to their reporters and editors, asking them to stop taunting other media organizations that got it wrong.
