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

NEWSPAPERS

NYT columnist and author Thomas Friedman returned a $75,000 speaker’s fee. LAT reports that the reversal came after a “misunderstanding” about the engagement with the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution — and How It Can Renew America.”

TV

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.”

ABC financial correspondent Bianna Golodryga joined the Morning Media Menu today to talk about covering the financial crisis and the differences between working for network and cable news.

RADIO

In memoriam, from NYT: Robert R. Pauley, a former president of the ABC Radio network who championed radio at a time when television was replacing it as a dominant medium, died on May 2. When Pauley became the president of the network in 1961, he reinvigorated it, in part by emphasizing live events, especially sports.

ONLINE

NYT: Craigslist will close its erotic services category, which critics have said is a forum that fosters prostitution and other illegal activities. To replace it, the company has created a category called adult services, in which postings will be reviewed by employees.

NEWS NOTES

Reuters: North Korea said it would put two U.S. journalists it arrested in March on trial on June 4, ratcheting up tension with Washington. Analysts said the reclusive North sees the two reporters as bargaining chips to try to win concessions.

Time Mag asks, Dick Cheney: Why So Chatty All of a Sudden?

There was some confusion at Columbia University over whether Attorney General Eric Holder‘s Graduate School of Journalism commencement speech on May 19th would be open or closed to the press. Page Six caught up with a rep from the school- “There is nothing at all we want to hide.”

AWARDS

UCLA’s Anderson School of Management announced the finalists for its 2009 Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. WSJ and NYT had the most finalists, with seven each across multiple categories. Bloomberg, “60 Minutes” and CBS were also recognized with a handful of nominations each, while now defunct magazine Portfolio received three nods. FishbowlNY has the complete list of awards here.
