In tabloids we trust - Gore story and more

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The PORTLAND TRIBUNE, a piece of the mainstream media, didn't dig into the allegations about sexual misconduct by Al Gore.     The mainstream media and the police frequently cave to the powers-that-be.    A tell-all book in the tradition of THE POLITICIAN could already be in the works. Tags: Media

NATIONAL ENQUIRER - Fall 2009, Still Not Credible

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

   But, at the time, that tabloid, observes Steve Helling in his book TIGER: THE REAL STORY, had little credibility.    The mainstream press hadn't yet focused on the brewing scandal.  Today, it's the tabloids like the NATIONAL ENQUIRER and like ABOVETHELAW.COM which are trusted, more than the mainstream media.    Tags: Media

Those Who Gawked

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  Another Gawker employee Ana Marie Cox doesn't have much good to say about those days in her review of the book in BOOK FORUM.    That she leveraged into a solid brandname and easy access to mainstream media positions.  Clearly, it's the end of the era.    Snark, even GAWKER founder Nick Denton concedes, has run its course. 

TIME expose on POLTICO as sweatshop - Yawn

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  Ana Marie Cox, who easily landed at GQ and had her ticket punched at many more other mainstream media publications, used to complain about how she had to pump out 10 posts a day at GAWKER for peanuts.  Incidentally, other geezers who are interested in learning about the tricks to stay earning a living can dig into my new book OVER-50: HOW WE STAY EMPLOYED.  What web operation isn't a sweatshop? 

New Profile of Power

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Wedel in her book  THE SHADOW ELITE.   Such a profile differs significantly from the one outlined by journalist Hedrick Smith in THE POWER GAME in the late 1980s and public relations leader Bob Dilenschneider in his book POWER AND INFLUENCE in the early 1990s. Supreme Court to block access to the media of the sealed documents from the settlement with the alleged victims of clergy sex abuse. Tags: Books

If it isn't in POLITICO, it didn't happen in Washington D.C.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  For instance, we know that all web media worth their salt, be it POLITICO or ABOVETHELAW [ATL], have to pick up on every development which may come to have significance.    Think how former Wonkette on GAWKER Ana Marie Cox leveraged her time in the sweatshop to mainstream media jobs.  NEW YORK TIME MAGAZINE's supposed expose on POLITICO didn't disclose much , at least not that we already know.
