New York Times poised for first mass staff walkout in 40 years


The New York Times is bracing for a 24-hour walkout on Thursday by hundreds of journalists and other employees, in what would be the first strike of its kind at the newspaper in more than 40 years.

Newsroom employees and other members of the NewsGuild of New York say they are fed up with bargaining that has dragged on since their last contract expired in March 2021. The union announced last week that more than 1,100 employees would stage a 24-hour work stoppage starting at 12.01am on Thursday unless the two sides reached a contract deal.

Negotiations lasted for more than 12 hours into late Tuesday and continued on Wednesday, but the sides remained far apart on issues including wage increases and remote-work policies.


Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the spirit of Ukraine named Time's 2022 Person of the Year

Zelensky named Time Perosn of the Year

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the spirit of Ukraine have been chosen as Time's 2022 Person of the Year, the outlet announced Wednesday morning.

Many have hailed Zelenskyy as a hero and symbol of hope this year – notably since Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February. The 44-year-old president has been applauded for leading and defending his country on the front lines throughout the war.

In the cover photo, Zelenskyy is depicted surrounded by the people of his country, as well as Ukrainian flags, sunflowers (the country's national flower) and more.

"Zelensky’s success as a wartime leader has relied on the fact that courage is contagious," Time reporter Simon Shuster writes in an article announcing the decision, describing Zelenskyy's leadership throughout the war and his rise to the world stage.


Fox News Parts Ways With Lara Trump

Lara Trump out at FOX

Lara Trump is out of a job at Fox News after her father-in-law announced another run for the White House last month.

The network confirmed Saturday it had parted ways with Lara Trump, the wife of Donald Trump’s son Eric, the Los Angeles Times reported. She joined the conservative network as a paid contributor last year after serving as a surrogate for the Trump campaign.

“We appreciate Lara’s valuable contributions across Fox News Media programming,” a representative of the network told the Times.

A source with knowledge of the situation said the decision stemmed solely from the network’s ban on political activity, The Washington Post reported.


US gun death rate hits 30-year high with female fatalities rising faster than men’s

Gun deaths in US

The US gun death rate last year hit its highest mark in nearly 30 years and the rate among women has been growing faster than that of men, according to a new study.

The increase among women – most dramatically, in Black women – is playing a tragic and under-recognized role in a tally that skews overwhelmingly male, researchers said.

“Women can get lost in the discussion because so many of the fatalities are men,” said one the authors, Dr Eric Fleegler of Harvard Medical School.

Among Black women, the rate of firearm-related homicides more than tripled since 2010 and the rate of gun-related suicides more than doubled since 2015, Fleegler and his co-authors wrote in the paper published by JAMA Network Open.

Twitter has lost 50 of its top 100 advertisers since Elon Musk took over, report says

Twitter loses advertisers

Half of Twitter's top 100 advertisers appear to no longer be advertising on the website. A report from Media Matters for America states that these 50 advertisers have spent almost $2 billion on Twitter ads since 2020 and more than $750 million just in 2022.

Seven additional advertisers have slowed their advertising to almost nothing, according to the report, which was published on Tuesday. These companies have paid Twitter more than $255 million since 2020.

Chevrolet, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc., Ford, Jeep, Kyndryl, Merck & Co. and Novartis AG all issued statements about halting Twitter ads or were reported and confirmed as doing so. The others ceased advertising on the platform for a "significant period of time following direct outreach, controversies, and warnings from media buyers."


Twitter ‘closes offices’ after Elon Musk’s loyalty oath sparks wave of resignations

Twitter closes offices

The crisis at Twitter reached new heights after hundreds of employees were reported to have rejected Elon Musk’s ultimatum to keep working for the business, threatening its ability to keep operating.

As the company temporarily closed its offices to staff on Friday, Twitter users began saying their goodbyes and linking to accounts on other platforms.

#RIPTwitter, #TwitterDown, Mastodon and Myspace were all trending on the platform after the deadline passed on Musk’s ultimatum for the remaining workforce to sign up for “long hours at high intensity” by Thursday, or leave. It has been estimated that hundreds of the remaining staff, already cut from 7,500 to around 3,750 in the wake of Musk’s takeover of Twitter last month, opted to go.
