Focusing on Core Strengths?The acquisition of EatingWell and the launch of Recipes.com will enhance Meredith’s top advertising category, according to Meredith chairman and CEO Steve Lacy. While Meredith National Media Group endured the recession fairly well, it has shown some softness recently, with advertising revenue falling 11 percent and ad pages dropping 13 percent in the third fiscal quarter. Revenue fell 4 percent and pages dropped 8 percent (average net per page grew in the mid-single digits on a percentage basis) in the first nine months of the fiscal year, while circulation revenue fell 7 percent in the first nine months of fiscal 2011. Earlier this month, Meredith folded ReadyMade Magazine, eliminating approximately 75 positions worldwide. According to MagazineRadar, Meredith posted the largest drop in ad pages among six major publishers in the first three months of 2011. Meredith Corp. has purchased multichannel brand EatingWell Media Group. As part of the acquisition, Meredith takes over 350,000 bi-monthly EatingWell Magazine (with plans to bump circulation to 500,000 next year); EatingWell.com; a content licensing and custom marketing group serving more than 75 clients including consumer portals, healthcare, food and supermarket retail partners; a Health-in-a-Hurry mobile recipe app; and a series of food and nutrition related cookbooks.

EatingWell CEO Thomas Witschi joins Meredith National Media Group as EVP and president. Meanwhile, Meredith is also launching Recipe.com, which includes a site with more than 20,000 recipes and in-store and manufacturer coupons, videos and an online shopping list and recipe box that lets users see local store savings on specific recipes.

Following massive fines levied against Facebook for data misuse, a new bill in Congress aims to put the brakes on the exploitation of voter info. Getty Images Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Wednesday introduced a bill prompted by Cambridge Analytica’s misuse of Facebook users’ private data. The Voter Privacy Act looks to address a lack of federal regulation on the collection and use of voter data by political organizations. The bill also seeks to give voters control over how that data is used in federal elections. “Political candidates and campaigns shouldn’t be able to use private data to manipulate and mislead voters,” Feinstein, a Democrat from California, said in a statement. “This bill would help put an end to such actions.” The move comes on the heels of a $100 million fine levied against Facebook by the Securities and Exchange Commission and a $5 billion fine from the Federal Trade Commission. During the 2016 presidential campaign, data consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica exploited the personal Facebook data of millions while working for Donald Trump’s campaign. Cambridge Analytica reportedly violated the social network’s policies when acquiring the data, then used it to target voters with political ads developed from psychographic profiles. Exempting data from public databases, the bill would extend five basic rights to voters. Among them are the right to be notified when campaigns obtain their data and to bar further sale, as well as the right to review data obtained by political organizations and demand its deletion. Voters would also be able to tell Google and Facebook not to use their data profiles to help political groups target them. “Today, campaigns are legally able to conduct sophisticated online surveillance of everyone in our country in order to influence individuals based on their unique psychological characteristics” Feinstein said. “This targeted manipulation not only undermines our democracy, it’s a threat to basic individual freedom.” Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Two members of Baltimore’s “Up da Hill” (UDH) gang, based in the city’s Cherry Hill neighborhood, were sentenced to long jail stints Friday for their roles in the gang’s activities.Steven “Cutty” Jackson, 25, and Alonzo “Zo” Clea, 26 were sentenced to 25 years and 10 years in prison, respectively, after pleading guilty to conspiring to participate in a racketeering enterprise.In his plea agreement, Jackson admitted to the 2006 shooting of a rival gang member, a 2007 armed robbery and, along with another man, the 2011 shooting death of a member of the rival “Little Spelman” gang. Clea admitted to possessing a firearm on three different occasions between 2008 and 2014.“Many shootings and murders in Baltimore City involve disputes between rival gangs,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein, who announced the sentences along with other law enforcement officials. “Police and prosecutors are saving lives by holding accountable the criminals who turned Cherry Hill into a war zone.”Jackson and Clea’s sentences bring to 35 the number of gang members from the Cherry Hill neighborhood who have pleaded guilty to being involved in racketeering conspiracies, Rosenstein said.
