NEWPAPERS

From Sunday’s WaPo, Howie Kurtz‘s Media Notes, “Under Weight of Its Mistakes, Newspaper Industry Staggers.”

From DCRTV: “Even though its circulation numbers continue to plunge, the Washington Post is raising its subscription delivery price from 41-cents to 49-cents per weekday and Saturday. Beginning Monday, 3/2. That’s a 19.5 percent hike. The newsstand daily price is 75-cents. No hike in the Sunday $1.50 price…”

WaPo Ombudsman Andrew Alexander takes on the George Will “Dark Green Doomsayers” from two weeks ago, criticized for fuzzy facts on global warming. “Opinion columnists are free to choose whatever facts bolster their arguments. But they aren’t free to distort them.”

RADIO

ABC Radio broadcaster Paul Harvey died Saturday at the age of 90. From Reuters: “Working out of Chicago, Harvey started his show each day by barking, ‘Hello, Americans, this is Paul Harvey! Stand by for news!’ and would sign off with a forceful ‘Paul Harvey…good day!’”

Statements from President George W. Bush, Paul Harvey Jr. and ABC Radio Networks President James Robinson can be found here, and a profile from WaPo’s Marc Fisher here.
