President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration is this week, and plenty of journalists will be in attendance covering the event.

However, after the incident on January 6th, where rioters stormed the Capitol, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is against media members wearing press lanyards and conspicuous clothing.

The CPJ cites an attack on Associated Press photographer John Minchillo by pro-Trump rioters in Washington DC to argue against the wearing of lanyards around reporters’ necks. The group suggest that credentials should be worn on Velcro pouches around their biceps.

“Wear clothing that helps you ‘blend in,’ that doesn’t look too ‘tactical’ or ‘military,’ and that allows you to move swiftly,” the CPJ said in an advisory. “Try and avoid loose clothing, political slogans, media branding, military colors/patterns, colors associated with certain groups (e.g., black is associated with anti-fascist [antifa] groups), and flammable materials (e.g., nylon).”

Furthermore, the CPJ also wrote about what media members should do if they’re in a hostile situation while covering the inauguration. “If individuals or the crowd, in general, becomes hostile to the media, it may help to deliberately avoid eye contact and to stop taking pictures/filming,” the CPJ wrote. “You will need to balance the risk versus reward, but engagement of any sort can be perceived as a challenge.”

MSNBC has canceled two shows on NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock. TheWrap reports that the programs hosted by Zerlina Maxwell and Ayman Mohyeldin are heading to cancelation. 

The two shows are canceled due to the effort to change the programming of the MSNBC hub on Peacock. Both hosts will remain with the network in other roles despite the programs ending.

“MSNBC would like Maxwell, who started at MSNBC in 2018 and is a former campaign aide to Hillary Clinton, to continue her role as an analyst for the network,” TheWrap wrote on Wednesday.

“Similarly, Mohyeldin will remain a host for his weekend prime show on cable and will also continue reporting and serving as a fill-in host for weekday primetime shows.”

The changes will go into effect beginning in September. While the two shows are now off Peacock, it is unknown what else the network intends to shift in this movement.

Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich will host a new series on the network’s streaming platform, “Luxury Hunting Lodges of America.”

Recently featured in a Barrett News Media column, Pavlich tours a 20,000-acre property in Louisiana wetlands at the Honey Brake Lodge. According to a news release, Pavlich took the opportunity to hunt for gators.

“There are more gators swimming around here than I have ever seen in my life, but we’re looking for one sunning itself on the bank,” Pavlich said. “This way, we can confirm its size and ensure a lethal shot, and finally, after a long day of searching, we found the one.”

CEO of Honey Brake Lodge Drew Keeth appears in the series with Pavlich. The lodge features 13,000 square feet, which is spread over three levels. The lodge typically hosts up to 1,500 hunters per year.

 “We’re trying to let as many people as possible see it and experience it,” said Keeth.

 “Luxury Hunting Lodges of America” is streaming now on Fox Nation.
