4345057.jpg

Good morning Washington. It’s Justice Alito’s bday, finally someone explains MoDo, Leon Harris likes baseball, The Deadline Club is out with its awards finalists, WRC’s Vickie Burns is heading to WNBC in New York, it’s the birthday of Redhead Fan Club favorite Jess Smith and don’t forget to not fall for April Fools jokes today.

Quickly navigate Morning Reading List:

NEWSPAPERS | TV | ONLINE MEDIA | MAGAZINES | JOBS

  • Hillary vs. McCain…you think McCain will win.

  • Today’s “Angry Journalist” rant of the day: “I’m angry because one of the finest, most talented journalists I’ve ever had the privilege to work with was forced to leave the paper last week. This senseless maneuver was attributed to flattening the management structure. I guess it’s OK to flatten structures, but when people get crushed in the process, that’s not OK”

    NEWSPAPERS

  • E&P reports, “The newspaper industry has experienced the worst drop in advertising revenue in more than 50 years. According to new data released by the Newspaper Association of America, total print advertising revenue in 2007 plunged 9.4% to $42 billion compared to 2006 — the most severe percent decline since the association started measuring advertising expenditures in 1950.”

  • Reuter’s Media File reports, “Former San Francisco Chronicle Editor Phil Bronstein has taken on a new role at parent company Hearst Corp. that will involve, among other things, finding ways to keep the news business viable at a time when most people have classified it as a dying industry.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “U.S. newspapers suffered their worst drop in print advertising sales since industry record- keeping began 57 years ago, hammered by the housing-market slump and competition from the Internet.”

  • Reliable Source reports, “For Washington VIPs, there were two hot tickets in town last night — not just an Opening Day seat at the new Nationals Park, but a coveted spot at the Lerner family’s pre-party, a little casual-dress affair for 800 of their closest friends. Folks like Michael Chertoff, Norah O’Donnell, Maury Povich and Connie Chung, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig and Japanese Ambassador Ryozo Kato. Pretty much any boldface name not preoccupied with a presidential campaign or the NCAA regional finals showed up at the team owners’ shindig on the top floor of a new office building two blocks from the stadium.”

  • Howard Kurtz writes, “Wall St. Journal Makes Politics Its Business”

    TV

  • Politics benefits CNN.”

  • Rendell: ‘Fox Has Done the Fairest Job’

  • Kornheiser and Jaworski return to ESPN Monday Night Football

  • TVNewser reports, “CNN just announced that Wolf Blitzer’s day just got longer. Blitzer anchors a special Sunday night edition of The Situation Room at 8pmET ‘focusing on the presidential race’, said Blitzer during Late Edition. An interesting programming move considering this is the final day of March ratings and CNN holds a slim 1,000 viewer advantage over MSNBC in prime time (Mon-Sun, 8p-11p) in the key A25-54 demo.”

  • Media Post’s On Media reports, “Obsessing over Time Warner’s fate and fortune is a time-honored pursuit that usually ends with the same discouraging realization. Even after adding AOL, subtracting cable, tweaking filmed entertainment and contemplating an overall breakup, the $50 billion behemoth is a product of reactionary rather than visionary leadership-and is, at its core, a content company.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “Time Warner Inc., the world’s largest media company, must share control its Superman copyright with the heirs of the comic hero’s creator, Jerome Siegel, a federal judge ruled.”

  • TVNewser reports, “With April 16 marking his one-year anniversary as co-anchor of CNN’s American Morning, John Roberts is profiled by TV Guide. Asked by writer Stephen Battaglio about what he expects when AM gets a new executive producer, Roberts says, ‘We’ll take the opportunity to just tweak around the edges of the show. The show as it is right now is fairly heavily scripted. I think what we’re going to do going forward we’ll try to pare back the amount of scripting that we’ve got and introduce a little more of an ad lib aspect to it, which will make the show a little looser, a little more accessible…’”

  • A release announced, “CN8, The Comcast Network today announced its plans to provide extensive coverage of the critically-important April 22 Pennsylvania primary, offering comprehensive, interactive news and feature programming available on air, online and ON DEMAND throughout April. Unlike traditional networks which are sending teams to Pennsylvania, CN8 is already utilizing its more than 120 PA-based employees, its six studios across the state, and its dozens of hosts, contributors and political experts who cover Pennsylvania and presidential politics 365 days a year.”

  • TVWeek reports, “Media buyer ZenithOptimedia has lowered its forecast for U.S. advertising spending for 2008 as the effects of the housing crisis seep into the economy and consumer confidence droops. Zenith sees newspaper advertising taking a bigger hit while Internet spending grows even faster than previously expected. Overall, ad spending will rise 3.7% in 2008, said ZenithOptimedia, which in December had forecast a growth rate of 4.1%.”

  • TVNewser’s Gail Shister writes,Dave Marash, a recent exile of Al Jazeera English, says his new book ‘certainly won’t be a ‘kiss and tell,’ ‘cut and whine’ about his former employer. The ex-’Nightline’ correspondent confirms he’s close to a deal for ‘The World Really is Watching,’ (working title), an analysis of the planet-wide expansion of television news. He’s been mulling the topic for a while.”

  • TVNewser reports, “This Friday marks the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., and networks are set to mark the occasion in a variety of ways. CNN’s Soledad O’Brien anchors the special ‘Eyewitness to Murder: The King Assassination’ at 9pmET on Thursday. The special is the first in CNN’s Black in America series.”

    ONLINE MEDIA

  • Arianna Huffington’s Dick Wiki

  • National Journal’s William Powers writes, “Not much is booming in the American economy these days, but there’s a bull market in blame. All over the media, people are pointing fingers at those who supposedly got us into this mess. Some say that Alan Greenspan did it. Others fault, variously, President Clinton, President Bush, Congress, and, of course, Wall Street. And let’s not forget the foolish people who took out all of those crazy mortgages in the first place. But there’s one culprit the media don’t mention much: themselves. This is a little strange because the news business has become quite good at publicly whipping itself for all kinds of sins. Many outlets employ columnists whose sole duty is to scold colleagues for their errors.”

  • PressThink reports, “The Love Affair Between McCain and the Press Sprains the Brain of the Liberal Blogosphere”

  • The New York Times reports, “When Ms. Huffington, the 57-year-old author and former conservative pundit, announced her plans for The Huffington Post three years ago, many critics dismissed the idea as a digital dinner party for her new liberal friends. But it has grown in ways that few, except perhaps Ms. Huffington herself, expected.”

  • Wolf Blitzer, George Will, and other big names at Lerners party at opening night for Nats stadium, writes Harry Jaffe.

  • AdAge.com reports, “Reinforcing print publishers’ frequent assertions of relationships with readers, new research by MediaVest suggests that readers trust print more than the web in almost every area.”

  • USA Today reports, “Looking to snare a larger share of Internet ad dollars, traditional media companies are launching ‘vertical ad networks’ in which they sell ad bundles of space on their sites and on independent sites with complementary content. Forbes.com’s Business and Finance Blog Network, announced last week, includes more than 450 finance-focused blogs, such as Talking Biz News and Xconomy. Forbes will sell ad space across that network, earning a cut of the revenue from the sites.”

  • BBC launches redesign of its news site

  • TechCrunch’s Erick Schonfeld writes, “Six Months In, And 600 Posts Later … The Worlds Of Blogging and Journalism Collide (In My Brain)”

  • New York Times reports, “When Ms. Huffington, the 57-year-old author and former conservative pundit, announced her plans for The Huffington Post three years ago, many critics dismissed the idea as a digital dinner party for her new liberal friends. But it has grown in ways that few, except perhaps Ms. Huffington herself, expected.”

    MAGAZINES

  • MediaWeek.com reports,John Micklethwait, editor of the highbrow British news and opinion weekly The Economist, knew his magazine had solidified its place in the American culture when The Simpsons’ beloved, hapless patriarch paid homage in an episode. But the magazine’s recent business successes on these shores are anything but a joke. It has achieved impressive gains in ad business and readership and scooped up industry accolades (most recently, a National Magazine Award nom for General Excellence), even as much larger news and business titles wither and as a certain high-profile launch — one promising ‘business intelligence’ on the front of every cover — doesn’t look so smart after all.”

  • AdAge.com reports, “Still on Ann S. Moore’s to-do list: trimming the portfolio of Time Inc. titles. That’s the impression she left with many staffers after a quarterly management meeting March 27. Ms. Moore, Time Inc.’s chairman-CEO, told top managers that she is still looking carefully at the portfolio of magazines so the company — the country’s biggest magazine publisher, with brands such as Time, Sports Illustrated and People — can focus on the titles best positioned for growth in print and online.”

  • Business Wire reports, “For the first time ever, global news and business bible The Economist shoots to the No.1 spot on AdweekMedia’s annual ‘Hot List.’ Released today, the highly anticipated ‘Hot List’ honors the publications and creative talents that keep consumers coming back to the newsstands. Leaping from its No. 10 rank last year, The Economist marks the biggest jump on the list and proves that news and business titles remain contenders in a market dominated by women’s lifestyle titles.”

    morningsun.gifGood morning Washington.

  • You think Dan Rather has totally lost it.

  • An NBC release announced, “According to national Nielsen Media Research data, ‘Meet the Press with Tim Russert’ was the top-rated Sunday morning public affairs program, winning the week ending Sunday, September 16 in all categories across the country and in Washington, D.C.” Nationally on Sunday, the Russert-moderated program
    attracted 2.991 million total viewers, a +30% advantage over ABC’s “This Week,” a +36% lead over CBS’s “Face the Nation” and +162% more than FOX “News Sunday”

  • An ABC release announced, “According to Nielsen Media Research for Sunday, September 16, 2007, ABC News ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos’ outperformed CBS’ ‘Face the Nation’ among both Total Viewers and the key Adults 25-54 demo for the 16th time this season. In addition, ‘This Week’ is the only Sunday discussion program up season-to-date (2%) and year-to-date (5%) among Total Viewers.”

  • Smithsonian Channel To Make Its Debut, But Only on DirecTV

  • Discovery Closer to Going Public

  • Deb Howell on “Protest Coverage Worth Protesting

  • Today marks the launch of P.O.T.U.S. ’08 on XM Radio.

  • TV Week reports, “Commercials in high definition not only look better, they sell better. That’s the conclusion of research tied to a major upfront deal that put Starcom USA clients on Discovery Communications’ Discovery HD Theater channel.”

  • The Nation’s Marvin Kitman reports, “The launch of Katie Couric a year ago as the anchor of the CBS Evening News was hailed by CBS as the biggest thing in news since, well, the invention of denture fixative commercials. It was also the biggest flop. The CBS Evening News Without Dan Rather or Bob Schieffer had its lowest ratings since Nielsen began tracking evening news shows in 1987.”

  • “Overall media advertising spending in the U.S. dipped 0.5 percent in the first half of 2007 compared with the first half of 2006, the Nielsen Co. said” last week, reports TV Week.

  • Los Angeles Times reports beginning last week, “season premiere episodes of seven Fox Broadcasting programs will be made available for free through Apple’s iTunes store, a move that highlights the TV industry’s race to harness the Internet and try out potential business partners.”

  • E&P reports, “The Newspaper Association of America is launching a contest that asks teens to create a YouTube video showing how they use newspapers in print or online.”

  • Washington Post reports, “Industry speculation has it that CBS might seek a quick financial settlement to avoid the spectacle of its former star taking depositions from its top brass. But [Dan] Rather dismissed that notion.” Rather “said he’ll give a ‘substantial’ portion of the money to journalism groups if he wins, reports the New York Daily News.

  • “It’s been a while since the debate over Iraq policy was the nation’s top talk show topic. But the Iraq doubters drove the suddenly re-ignited conversation on the airwaves last week. Meanwhile, the strange saga of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and his dog fighting operation proved a difficult topic to tackle,” according to the Pew Talk Show Index.

  • DMNews reports, “While circulation numbers continue to fall for large metro paid dailies, free papers are stepping in to meet the needs of the younger urban demographic.”

  • Last week, Google “released a free software tool that allows Google AdWords advertisers to create their own Google Print Ads for display in newspapers,” reports Information Week.

  • Poynter Online’s Amy Gahran writes, “I figured I should check out what NYTimes.com is doing in terms of online advertising, now that they’ve finally let go of the subscriber-wall model. The answer — at least from a quick perusal — was disappointing. NYTimes.com seems to still be relying mainly on large, generic banner ads that are mostly irrelevant to page content.”

  • Check out Public Eye’s Matthew Felling’s take on Dan Rather’s lawsuit against CBS/Viacom.

  • C-SPAN announced the re-design of www.campaignnetwork.org, the political network of record’s website specializing in Campaign 2008.

Mike Walter, an anchor with WUSA will moderate the panel. The event will take place at 10 a.m., Friday, Oct. 5 at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill, 400 New Jersey Ave., NW in the Ticonderoga room.” For more info, click here.
  • B&C reports, “The endorsement of stars like Oprah Winfrey, Jon Stewart or even Tiger Woods would not translate to any more votes and — somewhat curiously in the case of Stewart, Woods and several others — could actually hurt their chances.”

  • Asbury Park Press reports, “Technology threatens to replace traditional news sources with independent Web sites and blogs, making news gathering more democratic but raising questions about the veracity of stories, Myron Kandel, founding editor of CNN Financial News, said Thursday.”

  • New York Times reports, Michael Arrington, founder and (strong) voice of Techcrunch, an influential tech-centric blog about startups, is moving over to share his pulpit.
    Willingly. Starting Wednesday, Techcrunch will be co-edited by Erick Schonfeld, formerly an editor-at-large and blogger for the erstwhile Business 2.0 and a senior writer at Fortune Magazine.”

  • RCN announced in a release, “the company won its second consecutive Thoth Award for Investor Relations at the Public
    Relations Society of America National Capital Chapter’s 39th annual Thoth Awards Dinner at the National Press Club.”

  • John F. Sturm, president and chief executive officer of the Newspaper Association of America, writes in the Seattle Times, “Those who continue to support the 30-year-old ban on cross-ownership of newspapers and broadcast stations in the same market are living in a curious time warp — where a community’s communications consisted of a newspaper and, at best, a handful of local television and radio stations.”

  • Chicago Tribune reports, “Federal Communications Commission members got an earful Thursday night in Chicago, the fifth of six public hearings around the country on its media-ownership rules. Much of the crowd at Rainbow/PUSH Coalition national headquarters applauded whenever panelists and speakers from the community called for less consolidation of media ownership and more minority representation on and as owners of broadcast outlets.”

  • A tipster tells us, “HD history that almost wasn’t The Presidential address to the nation made a little history when it was shot and fed out in High Definition for the first time. But about 5 minutes into the speech, NBC, the network pool (and all the other networks) lost transmission of the HD signal. They immediately replaced it with the standard definition signal, but when it came to the refeed the HD version to the networks later on, it turned out nobody had recorded it. The transmission had been lost somewhere between the White House and the NBC Washington Bureau, and what’s even worse, NBC staff at the White House hadn’t recorded it. Enter struggling HD outfit HDNews. The 24 hour national news network broadcast entirely in HD and available on Dish Network and several cable systems in the northeast. They had subscribed to the pool feed and instead of going to NBC to receive the signal, went to the White House and plugged into NBC’s White House pool drop instead. This week NBC contacted the HDNews Washington Bureau, and they were able to provide a copy to NBC and the other networks that had subscribed the Presidential HD pool speech. And thus, saving September 13th 2007 as the first Presidential Address to the nation in High Definition.”

  • The Hollywood Reporter reports, “With $12.6 billion, Anne Cox Chambers of Cox Enterprises fame is the richest American whose fortune is tied to the media industry, but that’s only if you don’t count the Internet as ‘media.’”

  • Wall Street Journal reports, “When the Democratic-led Congress started debating a big Food and Drug Administration bill earlier this year, pharmaceutical companies worried that it would sharply restrict one of their most powerful sales-boosting tools — drug ads. But in the final bill, which passed the House overwhelmingly on Wednesday and the Senate last night, such marketing is largely spared. One major reason: the drug industry found powerful allies among media and advertising firms who were determined to protect one of their biggest and fastest-growing advertising categories.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “Comcast Corp., the biggest U.S. cable television service, and 10 other cable television providers were sued over claims their bundling of channels forces consumers to pay for services they don’t want.”

  • Poynter Online reports, “This just in, courtesy of our Anglophile-eyed British colleague, program coordinator Jacqueline Davies: Hypens are history, at least for 16,000 words deemed hyphen unworthy.”

  • “ABC is reaching beyond its Web site and iTunes with a deal to carry its prime-time shows on AOL Video. The agreement marks the first time ABC has offered its shows on an online portal. The deal also calls for ABC to syndicate its player to AOL Video,” reports TV Week.

  • EMDashes writes, “About that piece in the Voice that’s been getting a lot of press: good for them for creating something so timely and buzzworthy, and I’m wholly sincere; for many years, I never missed a copy of the paper. … Unfortunately, I can’t agree with Rose Jacobs here. It’s certainly true that the PEN World Voices Festival is an excellent series; I saw how fulfilling the events were (and how hard the small staff works) when I was at PEN, and it’s an inspiring program. But Jacobs’s accounts of two previous New Yorker Festival events, both of which I also attended — John Updike and David Remnick, in 2005, and Milos Forman and David Denby, in 2006 — puzzle me.”

  • Local freelance writer Kelly Dinardo makes Page Six!

  • The Orlando Sentinel editors try a Facebook experiment.

  • TV Week reports, “Electronic Local People Meters (LPMs) are set to be installed in 38 additional markets by 2011, the Nielsen Co. announced.”

  • Check out the latest installment of Mediabistro’s J-School Confidential.

  • Rachel Sklar writes, “Dan Rather Has Nothing To Lose”

  • Jay Rosen writes, “If I were to underline one thing about Dan Rather’s $70 million suit against CBS, it’s the theatricality of it, which is the key to understanding Rather himself.”

  • PBS Ombudsman writes, “PBS seemed to be making news this week rather than just broadcasting it. The news revolves around two debates, officially called “forums,” for 2008 presidential candidates — one in Iowa for Democrats and one in Maryland for Republicans. Both were scheduled months ago, are being broadcast on PBS, and are taking place within days. And both, in odd and contrasting ways, have become controversial.”

  • ’60 Minutes’ clocks in for its 40th season

  • Lloyd Grove has an interview with Barry Diller, “The internet mogul speaks his mind on videogames, newspapers, and his own style of management.”

  • TVNewser reports, “ICN says moveon.org’s use of ‘Gen. Betray us’ was not original; that it may have come from a Countdown with Keith Olbermann broadcast on August 16.”

  • TV Week reports, “Cox Communications on Wednesday announced it will be adding four high-definition networks from Discovery Communications. High def simulcasts of Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet and the Science Channel will be rolled out on a market-by-market basis, the company said. Customers will be able to see such shows as ‘Deadliest Catch,’ ‘Dirty Jobs’ and ‘Meerkat Manor.’”

  • Beltway Blogroll writes, “When Arianna Huffington and Jay Rosen announced their plan for OffTheBus early this year, I was excited by the prospect of a network of citizen journalists covering the 2008 presidential campaign. I even pondered the idea of volunteering as an OffTheBus professional mentor to the budding reporters. The more developments I see at OffTheBus, however, the more skeptical I become about whether it can fulfill its promise of offering ‘a wide variety of voices and perspectives” on the 2008 campaign.’

  • E&P reports, “After completing a two-year conversion of its 85 daily papers from 52-inch web size to 48-inch, Gannett Co. Inc. is conducting a national review for a possible second size cut to 44-inch web.”

  • New York Observer reports, “Blaise Zerega, Portfolio’s managing editor will be taking over the job of deputy editor–a position left vacant since the high-profile firing of Jim Impoco last month. Also, New Yorker managing editor Jacob Lewis will be joining Portfolio to fill Mr. Zerega’s role.”

  • Mary Mapes writes, “Gee, just when I was all excited about Wednesday’s big premiere of the new CBS cultural triumph Kid Nation, my old friend Dan Rather went and blew my whole evening out of the water by filing a massive lawsuit against the company. Here we go again.”

  • Stuart Taylor offers an apology “to MSNBC talk-show host Joe Scarborough and to The Post for the cutting description of Mr. Scarborough in a Sept. 7 op-ed, ‘Guilty in the Duke Case,’ by me and KC Johnson about the Duke lacrosse case. I wrote that description on the basis of transcripts of “Scarborough Country” programs early in the Duke case. My attention has since been drawn to transcripts of several subsequent programs, and I realize that Mr. Scarborough was one of the handful of journalists who deserve credit for calling attention early in the case to the emerging evidence of innocence.”

  • Brendan Nyhan writes, “Believe it or not: the AP has released a piece by Ron Fournier titled ‘Analysis: Is Edwards Real or a Phony?’ Talk about parroting Republican talking points! Can we expect an equivalent approach to covering the GOP candidates? (‘Giuliani: Sane or Crazy?’) Also, there’s an obvious epistemological problem here — Fournier can’t resolve whether Edwards is “real” or a “phony,” nor can anyone else. And this sort of character-focused coverage diverts attention from issues that Fournier can effectively address such as, well, policy.”

  • CJR writes about the Fournier piece, “one thing a political attack does need to work—whether it’s right or wrong—is for reporters to give it a thorough airing, to ensure that it gets proper traction with voters. Which is what Fournier does with today’s piece, headlined: ‘Analysis: Is Edwards Real or a Phony?’”

  • Harry Jaffe writes, “Now the Washington Post has come up with a surefire way to make its employees know they are valued cogs in the wheel of news production. Gary Corso, director of administration and operating services at the paper of Watergate fame, this week authored the following memo: ‘The Northwest cafeteria Coffee Cart is offering Post managers an opportunity to reward their employees with tickets for either a free box of popcorn or a free 16-ounce regular coffee. Tickets must be purchased in sheets of ten and can only be redeemed at the Northwest Coffee cart. The price is $11.00 for ten popcorn tickets and $15.50 for ten 16 oz. regular coffee tickets. (Taxes are included)’”

  • Real Clear Politics launched RealClearPolitics Fantasy ’08, “a market-based game for the 2008 election powered by Intrade.”

  • City Paper’s Erik Wemple writes, “Two reporters took on Vice President Dick Cheney. One of them will stay on the case.”

  • Bob and Lee Woodruff know how to draw a crowd. The boldface names will be out in full force Nov. 7 in New York City for the “Stand up for Heroes” gala. The event is a partnership between the New York Comedy Festival and the Bob Woodruff Family Fund,” reports TVNewser.

  • “FactCheck.org, the St. Petersburg Times, and the Washington Post smoke out the political BS,” writes Slate’s Jack Shafer.

  • “The Knight News Challenge is offering up to $5 MILLION for innovative ideas using digital technology to revolutionize community news!”

  • CyberSoc writes, “I started a post about social bookmarking but ended up writing about the apparent disappearance of technorati from the Washington Post’s article pages”

  • Rachel Sklar writes, “Color us not-surprised: Brian Stelter has…a blog! About TV!” Check out TV Decoder here.
