In your to-the-point Tuesday media column: Mike Wise gets suspended, big layoffs at the Deseret News, CBS Evening News is in the dumps, and Nick Sylvester speaks.
The Washington Post has suspended sports columnist Mike Wise for a month for his dumb Twitter prank, which seems fair.
Wacky Utah paper the Deseret News is laying off more than 40% of its workforce. Or, if you prefer, they've "unveiled a plan to refocus the quality and reach of its product."
Hey, CBS Evening Newstied its all-time low in viewers again this past week. Let's keep that streak going, Katie! NBC is still interested in you!
Nick Sylvester! Remember him? He's a young writer who once partially fabricated a cover story for the Village Voice, which was a big scandal around here back in 2006. Such innocent times! Anyhow, Nick Sylvester is finally discussing his feelings about that incident, in a little piece he did for Longshot Magazine. And here it is.
