NEWSPAPERS

The Boston Globe printed an editorial Friday supporting appointing an interim replacement to Senator Kennedy’s vacant seat. The paper writes: “There is no mourning period when it comes to ensuring adequate representation for Massachusetts residents in the US Senate. Important votes on health care and climate change draw near. Surely the governor can find a temporary replacement whose views are consistent with those of Kennedy and the Massachusetts voters who kept faith with him since 1962.”

Just how far in advance do newspapers write obituaries? Slate has the answer here.

And on a lighter note, WUSA sports anchor Brett Haber will be penning a sports column for USA Today.

Freedom Communications, Inc., which owns the Orange County Register is expected to declare bankruptcy this week and news layoffs are apparently imminent at the San Francisco Chronicle.

TV

CBS’ Bob Schieffer already knows what he’s doing May 21st, 2010… giving a commencement speech at the Rochester Institute of Technology in NY. The school year is only just starting and commencement seems far off, but the school must be proud- they’ve already sent out the press release.

Were you looking for Katie Couric during Senator Kennedy’s funeral coverage this weekend? She explains on Twitter that she dropped her daughter off at college for her freshman year.

Fox News’ Julie Banderas tied the knot.

ONLINE

HuffPost is on the move in DC again. The growing website has moved its bureau three times- from K St. to Dupont Circle, now finally settling on 17th and Pennsylvania Ave., right across the street from the White House (so Nico Pitney can just run over when he gets called for a question– we kid, we kid!)

BOOKS

A new “encyclopedia of journalism” is being released under the direction of GWU School of Media and Public Affairs professor Christopher Sterling. The encyclopedia will be a six-volume set of books covering print, broadcast, Internet journalism, U.S. and international perspectives, history, technology, legal issues and court cases, and ownership and economics.

NEWS NOTES

CBS’ Cami McCormick, who was injured in Afghanistan last week, is in stable condition after undergoing successful surgeries. TVNewser has more.

CBS News’ Cami McCormick Injured in Afghanistan

A statement from CBS News:

CBS News Correspondent Cami McCormick was injured today in Logar Province, Afghanistan, while on assignment for CBS Radio News.

McCormick was traveling with members of the United States Army when the vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED).

McCormick was initially treated at a field hospital, where she underwent surgery to stabilize her condition, and was then transported to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan for additional treatment.

McCormick is based in New York City and has been with CBS Radio News since September, 1998. She is an award-winning war correspondent who has had several assignments in Afghanistan and Iraq. She was in Afghanistan to cover the recent elections, and the continuing fighting in the region.
