Separated at Birth: The Fix Edition

Dan Senor has been getting a lot of MSNBC facetime since joining them as a contributor. Something about his nerdy look strikes us as AWFULLY familiar on that channel. The similarly baby-faced Chris Cillizza maintains a dominant presence on the network as well. MSNBC might be smart to keep the two of them off of TV at the same time considering we did a double take when we recently saw Senor on Morning Joe. You be the judge.

  • So far, you have already spent more than $500 on Christmas presents. Way to make us feel guilty.

    NEWSPAPERS

  • USAToday reports, “The Federal Communications Commission, overturning a 32-year-old ban, voted Tuesday to allow broadcasters in the nation’s 20 largest media markets to also own a newspaper.”

  • Frank Rich bashes political reporters.

  • A release announced, “In response to a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) vote in favor of relaxing media ownership rules and allowing companies in the top 20 national media markets to own both print and broadcast outlets, the Parents Television Council issued the following statement: ‘The PTC is deeply disappointed in the announcement today by the FCC that will effectively loosen longstanding rules for media ownership. While the ruling today will only affect a select number of US markets, even a small step in the wrong direction is a step in the wrong direction,’ said PTC President Tim Winter.”

  • Reuters reports, “A bipartisan group of U.S. senators threatened on Monday to override the Federal Communications Commission if the agency votes to loosen media ownership restrictions at a meeting scheduled for Tuesday.”

  • The Wall Street Journal reports, “With Web companies now beginning to dominate the market for local ads online, newspaper publishers are scrambling to change the way they sell ads, hiring sales teams that specialize in the digital market and creating new editorial packages to sell. But it may be a case of too little, too late. McClatchy, which publishes 31 daily newspapers around the country, is revamping its commission and incentive plans to better reward staff for online sales. Gannett now operates 50 mom-centric social-networking sites around the U.S. as part of a broader strategy to boost online revenue through what it calls ‘hyper-localized’ sites. Other publishers, from Lee Enterprises to Media General, are taking steps of their own to jump-start sales of local online ads.”

  • Mixed Media reports, “No one will be surprised when Rupert Murdoch starts meddling with the editorial machinery of The Wall Street Journal, despite a formal agreement to preserve its independence. But is he doing it already?”

  • Forbes asks, “Holy smokes–what happened to McClatchy?”

  • PEJ News Coverage Index for December 9-14 shows, “The unlikely surge of former Arkansas Governor helped generate the biggest week of coverage for the presidential campaign so far in 2007. But as Huckabee is learning, some media attention is more welcome than others. Plus, the Mitchell report turns steroid abuse in baseball into a front-page story—some might say at long last.”

  • The AP reports, “A media watchdog group said Monday that 64 journalists in 17 countries have died while covering the news in 2007 — the deadliest year in more than a decade. The Committee to Protect Journalists said in an annual report that Iraq led the list for the fifth year in a row, with 31 dead — one fewer than a year ago. Somalia was second with seven dead in 2007, and Pakistan and Sri Lanka each recorded five deaths.”

  • The Chicago Sun-Times reports, “Like most American newspapers, the Chicago Tribune has been reducing the space for news in its print edition. But unlike most papers, it plans to charge more for less.”

  • Washington Post reports, “All Eyes on Blogging Iowa Newsman”

  • “The winners of the 2008 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards were announced on December 17, 2007.” For full results, click here.

  • The New York Times reports, “A usual round of media self-criticism turned into a schoolyard brawl last week, as editors, reporters and bloggers traded insults over a front-page article in The Washington Post, all at the very online water cooler where they usually get their news about the industry. The Post article, which ran on Nov. 29, was about rumors of Barack Obama’s ties to the Muslim world. The piece drew widespread criticism: the Columbia Journalism Review said the article ‘may be the single worst campaign ’08 piece to appear in any American newspaper so far this election cycle.’”

  • E&P reports, “Will 2008 be a winning campaign year for … newspapers? For the first time since John Kennedy beat Richard Nixon in a presidential race that, by a landslide, anointed television as the medium of choice for political advertising, newspapers are daring to believe they and their Web sites will get more than their usual miniscule share of candidates’ media buys.”

Founders Fund Management, led by a quartet of wealthy and connected entrepreneurs behind such success stories as online payment service PayPal Inc., said Monday that it had raised $220 million from institutional investors to pump into new companies.”

  • MSNBC’s Steve Adubato writes, “Bill Clinton has come to his wife Hillary’s defense and I’m not convinced that’s a good thing. Clinton blames the media for not covering his wife fairly and he argues that we in the media are not focusing enough on Hillary’s experience, implying that we are holding her to a different and unfair standard.”
