James Franco vs. Yale Daily News
Movie star and cultural phenomenon James Franco is also a grad student at Yale University -- where his relationship with the Yale Daily News doesn't appear to be exactly warm and fuzzy.
Here's a recap of the past week....
Saturday: YDN blogger Cokey Cohen questions Franco's Twitter style and odd habit of posting links to photos (without any tweeted context) in a piece headlined, "Franco, #getittogether." The whole thing is summed up in this line: "James Franco, your Twitter sort of sucks."
Also on Saturday: YDN staffer Esther Zuckerman reports on how "everyone's favorite graduate student" will be hosting the Oscars in a piece titled, "Franco GRD '16 does some more things." (The Daily News often writes about Franco. In January, reporter Jordi Gassó wrote a long article about a campus musical that Franco helped to write and produce.)
Sunday: Franco co-hosts the Academy Awards along with Anne Hathaway (who studied at Vassar College and New York University).
Later on Tuesday: YDN blogger Cohen responds in a piece titled, "Franco, #wellplayedsir."
The photo above of Franco and Hathaway hosting the Academy Awards Sunday night was taken by the Associated Press.
