Conspiracies about Damar Hamlin’s injury find traction

“For many people, this is almost a game to see how far they can actually go and who will take the bait,” said Anthony Adornato, chair of SU’s broadcast and digital journalism department.

Adornato, whose research focuses on journalists’ use of social media, said outlandish reactions to Hamlin’s collapse didn’t surprise him. He recalled thinking at the time this was another high-profile event, making it easy to get into the feeds of many people – giving extreme groups an opportunity to spew misin

"Succession" mid-season recap and review: a free-for-all to the finish

Five episodes in, and we’re a long way from Succession’s season four premiere when siblings Kendall, Siobhan, and Roman Roy were crafting “The Hundred,” a start-up digital hub described by Kendall as “Substack-meets-Masterclass-meets-The Economist-meets-The New Yorker.” Typical of Kendall (Jeremy Strong), he was in over his head.

After a falling out with their father, Logan (Brian Cox), the trio teamed up in Los Angeles for a new beginning while Logan steered New York City-based Waystar Royco t

Newhouse students build photography and social media portfolios at Empire State Winter Games

If you thought you had winter bragging rights as Syracuse University students because of the snow that piles up every year, our weekend experiential learning course in Lake Placid may have you beat.

With Arctic-like temperatures and wind chills pushing 50 below zero, we had the chance to apply not only the photo, video and social media training we had learned at Newhouse to help cover the 2023 Empire State Winter Games, but some serious winter survival skills, too.

SU ice hockey unable to complete comeback against Mercyhurst

A seeing-eye slapshot goal from the point followed by a tuck inside the post from in close, and before the Orange could blink, they were down 2-0 to Mercyhurst.

Mercyhurst (17-13-2, 9-3-2 CHA) scored two goals within the first five minutes and Syracuse (9-22-2, 6-9-1 CHA) wasn’t able to claw back, dropping the regular season CHA finale 4-2.

Finding success on the power play, the Orange made it a one-goal game with 1:20 to go, but the Lakers spoiled any hope of a comeback with an empty net tall

SU ice hockey can’t capitalize on power play opportunities, drops third in a row

After a defensive zone faceoff win at the end of the second period, Mercyhurst’s Mary Kromer swiftly took the puck up the right side of the ice. Meanwhile, her teammate Sydney Pederson gained a step on the two Syracuse defensemen as she glided into the offensive zone.

All Pederson needed was a solid saucer pass and she’d be alone with the goaltender.

She got just that, kicking the puck from skate to stick on the feed from Kromer. A nifty move to the backhand fooled Syracuse goaltender Arielle

'Babylon' brings the chaos and turbulence of Hollywood

Damien Chazelle’s Babylon is loud, lengthy and all over the place, but it certainly isn’t boring; perhaps a fitting title would’ve been Everything Everywhere All At Once, had it not already been taken by the Oscar-nominated picture that managed to elegantly capture chaos. Babylon is far from elegant, but it’s star-studded and entertaining, tracking the highs and lows of three Hollywood stars in the 1920s.

At the film’s outset, actress Nellie LaRoy (Margot Robbie) is on the cusp of breaking thro

MY CHILDHOOD, MY COUNTRY Film Review — A Childhood Torn by War

The Buddhas of Bamiyan once stood tall and majestic, a pair of statues residing in central Afghanistan. In March of 2001, the Buddhas were reduced to rubble, bombed and destroyed by Taliban forces. To an outsider, the once awe-inspiring landmark was nothing but remnants of what once was. To Mir, the ruins were home, a representation of his troubled upbringing, and the appropriate introduction to a life molded by the terrorization of the Taliban.

“One day I saw a foreigner and an Afghan holding

FIRE IN THE SKY Film Review — A Mesmerizing and Mysterious Phenomenon

Shades of green, blue, purple, and pink dance in the sky. The streaks glide through the air, compressing and contracting in its dazzling yet eerie luminescence. The ordinary onlooker stands perplexed, eyes wide, mouth agape at the magnificent phenomenon known as the Northern Lights. Such a particular, mind-boggling occurrence naturally begs the questions how and why. More inquisitive and attentive minds ask the more daunting questions: What are its repercussions?

RUNNER’S HIGH Book Review — Testing the Limits of Endurance

“There were rocks and pebbles inside my shoes and socks and I knew this was damaging to my feet. Knew, but did not care. I was defeated. My leadfooted steps up the ascent were little nails in my coffin. There was no running left; I was stuck between a walk and a hard place.”

JOURNEY TO ROYAL: A WWII RESCUE MISSION Review — Remembering An Unsung Hero’s Journey

“[The B-29] was a beautiful airplane, flew beautifully. One problem: the engines, they overheated readily.”

With a roaring fire ablaze in the engine room of a B-29 bomber flying above the neighboring waters of Japan, a splash landing was put in order. The squadron of ten performed the ditch exceptionally well, strategically switching the power on and off to prevent the fire from engulfing the aircraft while the pilot teetered the fine line between absolute freefall and necessary control of the

As the final minute of the second period wound down, Syracuse’s Tatum White jumpstarted an odd-player rush. She fed a bank pass off the far boards to a streaking Hannah Johnson, who had stepped up and joined the rush. Johnson received the pass and fired a shot from the right circle, bouncing off the right pad of Colgate’s Kayle Osborne. Sarah Thompson colle
