NEWSPAPERS

Gawker’s got its hands on more information on the NYT‘s online membership plans, including a nytimes.com user survey.

TV

NYT‘s Alessandra Stanley is a fan of MSNBC’s Willie Geist… even that early in the morning.

More on birthers.

RADIO

Newsweek: National Public Radio CEO Vivian Schiller discusses why newspapers shouldn’t become not-for-profit ventures, why she believes it’s “delusional” to charge readers for online news, and the “slippery slope” that the NYT would embark upon were it to seek philanthropic support for news-gathering.

ONLINE

The Root has been flooded with racist comments since the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

Got a comment? Keep it to yourself. That’s the Boston Globe, but we’re not gonna lie, we have to agree.

NEWS NOTES

The day after… Mediaite has a wrap-up of Sarah Palin in the media this weekend.

WEST WING REPORTAGE

We learned first via ABC’s Jake Tapper‘s Twitter last night that a date has been set for that beer at the White House. Gates and Cambridge Police Sgt. James Crowley will meet President Obama for a brewski Thursday at 6pm. Still unclear what each guy will be drinking.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski suggests, “They really should have had vodka.” (h/t Playbook)
