NEWSPAPERS

How did the NYT print a story about Walter Cronkite with seven errors? Public editor Clark Hoyt says: “Even a newspaper like the Times, with layers of editing to ensure accuracy, can go off the rails when communication is poor, individuals do not bear down hard enough, and they make assumptions about what others have done.”

The newspaper industry may not be in the best shape, but one section is doing just fine- obits, as pointed out by WaPo ombudsman Andrew Alexander.

NEWSPAPERS

NYT ombudsman addressed David Rohde‘s kidnapping in Saturday’s paper. Clark Hoyt: Had I been in [executive editor Bill] Keller’s shoes, I would have done what he did for [David] Rohde and his companions, even though Keller acknowledged, “I’ll never know for sure whether our silence had any impact whatsoever on David’s fate.”

TV

How Sarah Palin’s news broke on TV this holiday weekend, from TVNewser.

Sunday show ratings: “Meet the Press with David Gregory was #1 again last week and for the second quarter of 2009, but the gap continues to narrow. “Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer” was second in Total Viewers last week while “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” was second in younger viewers.

From TVNewser: Schieffer’s show is up 13% in both Total Viewers and A25-54 viewers compared to last year. “This Week” is up 15% in Total Viewers and up 7% in the demo versus last year. This was the smallest Q2 gap between “This Week and “Meet” since 1998.
