"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…
Are we a “screwed generation”? Maybe.
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!

We are SUCH cheap dates. Except when you add in the $47 million in baggage we’re carrying!
Moving day: version 392. (Yes, that is a case of Brooklyn Lager with our boxes. Gotta stay sane!)
Update: At least we get to keep our chairs!
