It Only Took Time 29 Years To Name Another Woman Person Of The Year
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Time magazine has named German Chancellor Angela Merkel as its Person of the Year, citing her handling of the Greece debt crisis and refugee influx in Europe. Merkel is also the first individual woman to be chosen as Person of the Year since 1986, when it went to Corazon Aquino, the first female president of the Philippines. "In a year where world leaders were tested, no one was tested the way [Merkel] was," Nancy Gibbs, Time's editor-in-chief, said on NBC's "Today" show. Merkel helped manage the economic collapse in Greece this summer, for which she faced a deluge of criticism. One prominent sociologist accused Merkel of "gambling away" Germany's reputation. Others called her threat to temporarily kick Greece out of the Eurozone too harsh. The chancellor has also been at the forefront of handling Europe's massive refugee influx this fall, along with the "return of terrorism" in Europe, Gibbs said. "She has stepped up in a way that was uncharacteristic," Gibbs ...

Time Film Critic Richard Corliss Dies At 71 [Breaking]
The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
Richard Corliss, who served as the film critic for Time for 35 years, has died at the age of 71. According to a report on the magazine’s website, Corliss passed away Thursday after suffering a stroke the previous week. In a note addressed to the staff of Time, editor Nancy Gibbs said she had trouble trying to describe Corliss. “It’s painful to try to find words, since Richard was such a master of them. They were his tools, his toys, to the point that it felt sometimes as though he had to write, like the rest of us breathe and eat and sleep. It’s not clear that Richard ever slept, for the sheer expanse of his knowledge and writing defies the normal contours of professional life. Everyone who had the pleasure of working with him has stories of his kindness, his quirks, his humor, his obsessions, the bright, fresh breezes of his head and heart.” Richard Corliss was a fan of Quentin Tarantino’s work, noting that they “allow for no idle bystanders; you either get with the pogrom or ...

Why It's So Hard For Working Women To Get Ahead, And What We Can Do About It
Huffington Post - about 3 years
About a year into working my first job, my boss and I sat down for my annual review. As I kind of expected, he told me I was doing well and offered some minor suggestions for improvement. Then he asked me if there was anything else I wanted to talk about. The seemingly benign question made my stomach churn. It felt like an invitation for me to ask for a raise. Still, I wasn't all that interested in talking about it. Even armed with the knowledge that the conversation was probably going to go my way and the feeling that I did deserve more, I had a tough time getting the words out of my mouth. After the talk ended, I was relieved, but not completely. I got the raise and yet it probably took me an hour to recover from the awkwardness of acknowledging out loud that I was doing a good job. The idea of selling myself to my boss, a potential employer or even just another human socially makes me queasy. Even composing a self-congratulatory Gchat is agonizing. It usually takes me seve ...

Iranian President Goes On Major American Media Blitz
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has gone on a major media blitz during his stay in the United States. Rouhani, who has signaled his eagerness for a diplomatic agreement with the West, had already given an interview in Tehran to NBC's Ann Curry. But his trip to New York to speak before the United Nations allowed many other journalists to speak to him. CNN's Christiane Amanpour got the first crack at Rouhani, speaking to him for an interview that aired in part on Tuesday night. On Wednesday, Charlie Rose tweeted that he would be speaking to Rouhani for the entirety of his hour-long PBS show. On Wednesday morning, Rouhani also met with a broad cross-section of reporters, editors and network presidents. NBC's Andrea Mitchell was among those present: In informal convo w/ American media @HassanRouhani said abt decision not 2 meet #Obama Tues: "We did not have enough time to make it happen" -- Andrea Mitchell (@mitchellreports) September 25, 2013 So was Katrina vanden Heuvel, edi ...

5 Things You Should Know About Nancy Gibbs, Time Magazine's New Managing Editor
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Another great first for women in journalism was announced this week: Nancy Gibbs has been appointed the first female managing editor of TIME magazine. Gibbs will take over the job from Richard Stengel, who has been offered a position at the State Department. Here are five things you should know about this media powerhouse: 1. Gibbs started her career at TIME in 1985 as a part-time fact-checker. The magazine hired her full-time as a writer in 1988. 2. She has written 174 TIME cover stories -- more than any other writer in TIME’s history. Talk about seriously impressive. 3. Her best advice to young professionals? Get your foot in the door. At a May 2012 launch party for her book The President's Club, co-written with Michael Duffy, Gibbs told the audience: "I’ve always found that once you’re in the door of a place and you have the chance to show how you operate and how talented you are, then anything can happen.” 4. She credits her upbringing for much of her success. In a Sept. 1 ...

Rick Stengel Leaving Time For State Department Post
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Time magazine editor Rick Stengel is leaving to take a post at the State Department, Capital New York and Politico reported on Thursday. The two outlets wrote that he will be succeeded by his deputy, Nancy Gibbs. Stengel will become Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, where, in the words of the State Department, he will "[lead] America's public diplomacy outreach, which includes communications with international audiences, cultural programming, academic grants, educational exchanges, international visitor programs, and U.S. Government efforts to confront ideological support for terrorism." The post was famously occupied by George W. Bush adviser Karen Hughes during his administration. Stengel has overseen Time for 2006. During his tenure, the magazine became the sole surviving major print newsweekly, as rivals Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report either moved to digital or ceased publishing weekly altogether. Though circulation dropped, Time manag ...

Shame on you
Republican America Blogs - over 4 years
I’ve written many times about Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and her sky-high popularity. This favorability gave  rise to (obviously false) rumors that she would challenge President Obama for the 2012 Democratic presidential nomination, and continues to fuel buzz that gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden will be forced off the Democratic ticket ahead of the party’s convention in favor of Mrs. Clinton. Because of her job, Mrs. Clinton is barred by law from taking on a direct role in the campaign and – at least as far as I’m concerned – it seems unlikely Mr. Biden will get the boot, given that doing so would essentially amount to Mr. Obama admitting he made a serious mistake when he selected Mr. Biden in 2008. That doesn’t mean, however, that Mrs. Clinton won’t be a presence as the campaign progresses, and that is likely to be thanks to an unexpected source. The campaign of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has released an ad responding to a recent ...
