    From Colorlines: “The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term “illegal immigrant” or the use of “illegal” to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that “illegal” should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally,” wrote AP Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll on the organization’s blog.

  1. Magazines, particularly those of a certain stripe, have exclusion in their DNA. Vanity Fair, Esquire, GQ are all, on some level, aspirational. They are all trying to project some high life that you really should be living.

Bienvenidos a FJP Latin America
Ever since we launched the Future Journalism Project we’ve tried to cover important media developments around the world. This is hard though. Our sources when doing so are primarily in English so we miss out on the nuance and important local stories that occur every day.
This summer we decided to do something about it: globalize.
And today we’re psyched to announce the launch of FJP Latin America. (Follow on Tumblr. Follow on Twitter). 
Edited by José L. Leyva and Roberto Juárez-Garza, FJP Latin America will focus on media, journalism, society and technology from Mexico to Tierra Del Fuego with relevant linkages to Spain and the Latino communities in the US and Canada. We’ll do so by monitoring Spanish-language media and other primary sources, translating them into English, and then commenting upon and analyzing what we find (again, in English) for the non-Spanish speakers among us. [more]

Some major props to FJP for coming up with a spin-off of a great publication. Read the full announcement here.

  1. Today at the UNITY Convention in Las Vegas, NPR announced that we will receive a $1.5 million grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to expand our coverage of race, ethnicity and culture.

    These resources will allow NPR to form a new team of six journalists to identify and report news and perspectives, and present new voices and conversations, that capture the issues that define an increasingly diverse America.

Journalism Riches
Over at at Journalism Jobs a company is is looking for US-based journalists to write cover and feature stories that will be placed in the “weekly, hyperlocal sections of a major metropolitan newspaper.”
For your efforts: $24 for a “cover story”, $10-$12 for “news and features”.
Via Journalism Jobs:

The job pays $24 per piece. Stories are two-source interviews on topics selected well in advance by our editorial team. Story lengths average 650 to 700 words, and each assignment requires the writer to include three hi-res photos from sources. An assignment editor will provide you with a story template and data to help write each piece. You contact sources, conduct interviews, mix in the data and write to spec.

If you’re doing the math on those cover stories, that’s three cents per word.
We feel dirty too.

Sigh. — Tanya B.
