"In this week’s gallery of the best photojournalism from the week, we pay tribute to regular contributor Anja Niedringhaus. The Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer was killed this week covering the presidential election in Afghanistan. She worked in the conflict areas of the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya from where she always displayed compassionate and courageous photojournalism."

Awesome new colleague alert! Tumblr, what should we do with Megan here on tumblr? Would you be interested in a Q&A? Or perhaps an AirTime! Or maybe we should make a Megan gif of her first day? Open to ideas…

Forced to take lower wages if they can find work at all and facing still-expensive housing in those markets where many of the jobs are, roughly one in five American adults 25 to 34 now live with their parents—almost double the percentage from 30 years ago.
Are we a “screwed generation”? Maybe.

We Want Your Questions For A Tumblr “TV” Show!

Hey guys! 

Some fun news. nwk tumblr is getting a TV show! Kinda. Here’s the deal. There’s this really big and nice and shiny TV studio sitting here at NewsBeast HQ (above; and please note that Brian is reading “Why Him? Why Her?”, the Helen Fisher book), and sometimes in the late afternoons there’s a window for which we can walk up and sit in the seats and pretend we are news anchors. 

We’re going to do that today.

But instead of us just blabbing about Mitt Romney’s tax returns or Baby Blue Ivy, we want to answer some questions — from you all. Like, basically, “Ask nwk tumblr anything.” 

So: will you be a part of our first show and ask us a question? It can be about life, love, lizards, politics, journalism, juice, or whatever else suits your fancy. We’ll pick five.

Then hopefully they’ll let us back on set to do it again.

OK, go! Ask nwk tumblr a question!

Not Dead Yet! Harman Buys Newsweek; Meacham to Step Down.

(And neither is NEWSWEEK!)

Yes, we know, could it have taken us any longer to comment on this? (As Don Graham put it, “We have a company tradition of announcing news “after every other person already knows what it is.”) But just in case you didn’t hear, this is the official: Sidney Harman will be Newsweek’s new owner; Jon Meacham will step down. From the release:

No decision on who will replace Meacham has been made. Tom Ascheim, NEWSWEEK’s current chief executive officer, will remain in that role under the new ownership. The deal is expected to be concluded by the end of this month or early September.

“NEWSWEEK is a national treasure,” Harman said. “I am enormously pleased to be succeeding The Washington Post Company and the Graham family and look forward to this great journalistic, business, and technological challenge.”

And there you have it: future no longer TK. Looking forward to welcoming Mr. Harman to the building.

Additional cocktails cut in the editing process:

“I wonder if TIME is hiring-tini”
“Newsweek staffers: please don’t fall (jump?) off the roof tonight-chiller.”
“Wow, there is seriously a LOT of booze under my desk right now-shooter.”

See you at the bar.

Mad Men Save Newsweek

In the spring of 2010, Newsweek magazine was put up for sale. In an attempt to make the company more desirable to potential buyers, the staff hired an advertising executive from the year 1963 to pitch his ideas.

Today in Things We Love: Nice work from Ryan Jones (and the Nwk staff, who can actually act!)
