Emojis in the New York Times :-0

So, the New York Times had a headline that used an emoji!  Twitter was ALL CAPS with excitement.

But not so fast!  The web version didn’t quite look the same.

Emoji are apparently fine for twitter, maybe not yet on the web.   In other journalism news, the BBC issued a big report on the Future of News.  And going back to the past, an extraordinary example of burying the story:  The Telegraph disclosed the existence of the Nazi gas chambers three whole years before Auschwitz was liberated…. but they “chose to report the ‘greatest massacre in the world’s history’ on page five of a six-page newspaper.’  The report ended up costing the life of the source, Szmul Zygielbojm, who committed suicide in despair at the indifference of the Allied governments.  His last letter is here.
