Editor Real Talk, a Tumblr blog created in April, is becoming popular with media professionals. The blog documents situations that could happen in any newsroom with GIFS ( Graphics Interchange Format) or mini video clips, along with pithy captions. What makes the page hilarious is the contrast between the captions and the GIFS, many of which are movie clips or news videos. For example,“When I catch an error in the magazine after it goes to print” has been paired with Jack Nicholson smashing utensils in a clip from The Shining. Another one has a news clip of Michelle Obama showing off her muscles with the caption “When I edit 20,000 words in a day”. Ann Friedman, executive editor of GOOD magazine, is the creator of the blog.
