By killing bylines, is NYT putting readers first or needlessly hurting reporter egos?

The New York Times has decided to remove bylines for reports from its website homepage.  Although executive editor, Dean Baquet, and managing editor, Joe Kahn, said the decision has been taken keeping website design in mind, the move has triggered widespread outrage across social media.  ThePrint asks – By killing bylines, is NYT putting readers first or needlessly hurting reporter egos? Bylines provide credibility, removing them makes no sense Chandan Mitra Editor-in-Chief and Managing Director, The Pioneer The New York Times' decision to remove bylines from their homepage is not a particularly sound decision. There are two reasons for this. First, bylines provide credibility to news reports. In their absence, it would seem the story has a particular angle. It may be perceived that the story has been put out by the ownership, or the management of the media house. A crucial sense of responsibility goes missing with the disappearing names. Second, there are some stories that are better written than others. Often...

Trumps accused of treason, Sharif may have to go and girls’ will finally have PE in Saudi schools

OPPONENTS USE THE ‘T-WORD’ TO DESCRIBE RUSSIA CONNECTIONS In the wake of groundbreaking New York Times revelations that three top Trump campaign officials, including Donald Trump Jr., agreed to meet a “Russian government attorney” in 2016, critics have begun to describe the Trump campaign’s behavior using a damning new word: treason. “e’re now beyond obstruction of justice in terms of what’s being investigated," said Senator Tim Kaine, the 2016 Democratic vice-presidential nominee. "This is moving into perjury, false statements and even into potentially treason." Richard Painter, the former chief ethics lawyer to Republican President George W. Bush put it more bluntly on Twitter. “This is treason,” Painter wrote, adding that Trump Jr. must have known “the only way Russia would get such information was by spying.” On Tuesday night, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a four-page transcript of email conversations between him and an intermediary promising salacious material on his father’s Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, obtained by the Russian government....

Global Pulse: The French Choice

In France, the choice cannot be starker on May 7th, the final day of voting – between Marine Le Pen who wants to shut the door to immigrants and globalization and Emmanuel Macron, who wants to bring down the remaining barriers with the world. Le Pen called herself "the candidate for the people", saying that the "survival of France" was at stake. The anti-immigrant far right has never been this close to power since World War II, prompting all the candidates who lost to gang up against Le Pen and ask their supporters to vote her out in May. If Macron, a former investment banker and politician who founded a new, centrist party, wins, E.U., NATO leaders, and financial markets will be relieved. But no matter who wins, the result represents a shocking shift away from the dominance of the two mainstream parties -- the first time this has happened since 1958. Labour pain...
