1) Face reality: You may have a legal problem. You certainly have a staff problem. And a PR problem. Your own job may be on the line.
2) Don't rush to judgment: Get the facts before taking action against an employee or going public.
3) Don't trust your instincts. Seek advice from lawyers and colleagues.
4) Decide how much disclosure you "owe" your readers while protecting the rights of the wayward employee and the integrity of your news organization.
5) Make sure your staff knows everything that will be made public before it's made public.
6) Understand that how you react may leave a bigger impression than the misdeed itself, and that journalists will remember the crisis longer than your readers.
7) Give activists and outside interest groups a respectful hearing?and nothing else.
8) Use your damage control campaign to demonstrate leadership and invigorate the ethical culture of your newsroom.
9) Don't lose sight of your primary responsibility?putting out the best newspaper or newscast you can.
10) Hope that you have an understanding boss and a supportive network of family, colleagues and friends.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
