So, the New York Times went to the effort of pitching a movie. A reporter worked with a script doctor to create an absurd-but-not-too-absurd film plot, then asked industry players what they’d change in the approach. Would you see this movie in theaters?

New polling data shows President Obama gaining ground in OH while slipping in FL and WV

  • Florida A new Quinnipiac University/NY Times/CBS News poll shows Mitt Romney has drastically cut into the the 53 - 44 lead enjoyed by President Obama in late September. Romney still trails among early voters though, sitting 6 points behind President Obama in a 50 - 44 race.
  • Ohio According to the same poll, President Obama leads Mitt Romney by 7 points, with current reports suggesting a 50 - 45 split, which he has maintained for more than a week now. Early voting in Ohio heavily leans towards the incumbent as well, with President Obama leading Mitt Romney 60 - 34. 
  • Virginia Mitt Romney has also managed to gain some ground in Virginia, where he trailed the President 51 - 46 as recently as October 11. The former governor of Massachusetts still trails President Obama 49 -47; however, the candidate is undoubtedly happy about shaving the five point spread. Early voters in Virginia also tend to back President Obama, where he currently holds a 57 - 38 lead. source

UPDATE: NY Times takes blame for e-mail blast, says it wasn’t spam

An annoying story, but a fun one, admittedly. Update: Here’s Amy’s story.

New York Times readers targeted by erroneous e-mail
A high-profile e-mail message hits many. A couple of hours ago, we received the above message from the NYT, thinking it strange they were canceling our print subscription because we only have a digital one. We called the number, and were told the lines were busy, and offered a fax line to call — because, clearly, faxes are the most modern mode of communication these days. Then, just a few minutes ago, we saw this:

A spam message was sent broadly today with the subject “Important information regarding your subscription.”
— NYTCo Communications (@NYTimesComm) December 28, 2011

The email was not sent from The New York Times.

Not good, huh? Well, according to Business Insider, the company in charge of these accounts was compromised earlier this year. Did you get this message?
» EDIT: Yuri Victor at The Washington Post says it’s likely the e-mail was a mistake, despite the company’s claims otherwise, and that the sender had the right to e-mail subscribers for the paper.
» Second edit:  A New York Times reporter says that the Times made an error, and that the message wasn’t spam.

The Times revises its story to shift the blame away from NYPD onto protesters, via FreakOutNation.

As we keep seeing this pop up on our dashboard this morning, we’d like to again point out the commentary on this piece we published last night (via our friend Megan Lavey-Heaton). The Times didn’t take this info out of the story; they just moved it from the lede.
