  • TVNewser reports, “Another Super Tuesday tomorrow on MSNBC. Chris Matthews continues in Iowa moderating the Livestrong Cancer Forum. Back east, Tim Russert, Natlie Morales, Tucker Carlson, Chris Jansing and others will hold down the anchor fort.”

  • The AP reports, “Yahoo Inc. will introduce new features Monday for its popular Web-based e-mail program, including software that allows computer users to type text messages on a keyboard and send them directly to someone’s cell phone.”

  • The Hollywood Reporter’s Gail Schiller reports, “To launch their fall lineups, the major networks are turning to the Web like never before, offering viewers the chance to see premiere episodes for free and producing original content around their new series that doubles as entertainment and advertising.”

  • New York Post reports, “Mel Karmazin taught Farid Suleman well — so well, in fact, that the Citadel Communications CEO’s move to bring Don Imus back to the airwaves is torn straight from the teacher’s manual.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “Hearst Corp., the publisher of the San Francisco Chronicle and almost 200 magazines, plans to offer about $593.1 million for the stock of Hearst-Argyle Television Inc. it doesn’t already own. Hearst-Argyle shares surged.”

  • Media Daily News reports, “Now the world’s biggest researcher is launching ‘Hey! Nielsen,’ a new online social community where people can discuss — and influence — TV, music, movies, Internet sites and celebrities. ‘Part opinion engine, part social network, and part buzz tracker, Hey! Nielsen is the place to share opinions on your favorite entertainment,’ reads the description on the beta version of the site, which is currently open only to Nielsen employees, but which will go public by the end of September.”

  • The Nation reports, “Along with the (now stalled) rush toward massive conglomeration and the (accelerating) rash of budget-cutting in news-gathering operations, perhaps the two most visible trends across nearly all mainstream US media in recent decades have been an increasing inclination toward tabloid-style coverage coupled with an intense effort to win over conservative critics of alleged liberal media bias.”

  • Boston Globe’s Richard Lipez writes, “It’s still uncertain when or where shock-jock Don Imus will return to the airwaves, now that he has settled his suit with CBS. But a more interesting question is this: When Imus does come back, will distinguished American media personages such as Frank Rich, Doris Kearns Goodwin, and Tom Brokaw continue to show up on his show, lending him respectability and cover for his racist, misogynistic, and gay-baiting rants?”

  • TVNewser reports, “Michael Vick’s first comments since pleading guilty to dogfighting charges could not have come at a worse time for MSNBC. The cable network is covering the two-day Livestrong Presidential Cancer Forum headlined by Lance Armstrong. At 11:34amET Chris Matthews and Armstrong were in the middle of questioning Sen. Hillary Clinton, when Vick appeared.”
