NEWSPAPERS

NYT‘s considering a $5 a month web-access fee, according to Bloomberg.

Ten questions for NYT‘s Bill Keller via Time: “It was partly the insatiable desire for scoops people in the Administration were feeding about the potential threat in Iraq,” said Keller of The New York Times’ coverage ahead of the Iraq War. “But a lot of it was just that we floated along with the conventional wisdom, the worst enemy of journalism.”

TV

Twenty questions from The Hill for Fox News’ Shannon Bream. “Q: What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you on-air? A: How do I narrow that down? I think honestly the worst thing is when you cannot find a word that is incredibly common but for some reason you have a brain freeze. I remember doing a report outside a restaurant about E. coli, and I couldn’t remember the word meat.” More on her reign as Miss Virginia 1990, her resume in local news and outlook for Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s hearings next week here.

Congrats to MSNBC’s Willie Geist and his growing family who welcomed baby George William this wee.

NEWS NOTES

Katie Couric, Cindy McCain, Elizabeth Edwards and Kate Gosselin are lined up to attend Maria Shriver‘s annual Women’s Conference this fall.

  • “To celebrate its 11th anniversary, FOX News Sunday (FNS) will debut a new ongoing series, ‘Choosing the President,’ on April 29th. It will consist of in-depth interviews with presidential candidates conducted by FNS moderator Chris Wallace, and will provide an opportunity for candidates to discuss and debate their platforms as they formally announce their candidacy.

  • PBS’s Bill Moyers reports, “Four years ago this spring the Bush administration took leave of reality and plunged our country into a war so poorly planned it soon turned into a disaster. The story of how high officials misled the country has been told. But they couldn’t have done it on their own; they needed a compliant press, to pass on their propaganda as news and cheer them on. … Yet the story of how the media bought what the White House was selling has not been told in depth on television. As the war rages into its fifth year, we look back at those months leading up to the invasion, when our press largely surrendered its independence and skepticism to join with our government in marching to war.”
