CNN’s Susan Roesgen‘s contract will not be renewed and she will be leaving the network, TVNewser reports. She was criticized for her coverage at the tax day tea parties in April, when she said the event she was covering was, “anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing, conservative network Fox.”

LAT: In a new television spot, CNN proclaims it is “No. 1, with more viewers than Fox and MSNBC.” The ad goes on to say that CNN has held the top spot for seven years in a row. This came as a news flash to Fox and MSNBC, considering that both top CNN in the ratings.

It’s CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo vs. Erin Burnett at MarketWatch’s Media Web.

To commemorate the Apolla 11 mission, FNC will air “Apollo 11: One Small Step to Our Future” tonight at 10pm, hosted by Greta Van Susteren and including an interview with Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11′s lunar module pilot and the second man to walk on the moon.

One of the biggest stories this week was the murder of five American troops by a fellow sergeant at Camp Liberty in Baghdad. In her report, ABC’s senior foreign affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz had video from inside the clinic where the shooting took place. “Just a few weeks earlier, on her 20th reporting trip to Iraq, she had spent an afternoon at Camp Liberty in Baghdad,” reports The New York Observer’s Felix Gillette. “Ms. Raddatz had spent an entire afternoon interviewing the clinic’s staff members for her report on how the military was coping with the recent uptick in suicides.”

TVNewser reports news orgs were asked not to name the “other woman” during interviews with Elizabeth Edwards. In three TV interviews, Hunter, “the other woman” in the John Edwards affair, Rielle Hunter, was not mentioned.

On the same note, AP reports that it was twice denied interviews with Edwards’ because it refused to omit the name of Edwards’ mistress from its articles about Elizabeth and her book. The article quotes Michael Oreskes, the AP’s vice president and senior managing editor who said simply, “We don’t let other people edit our wire.”
