NEWPAPERS

The Ann Arbor News will close in July after publishing as the city’s daily newspaper since 1835, publisher Laurel Champion announced. Heavy losses in revenue drove the decision. Champion said the current “business model is not sustainable.”

Bill Kristol on who many have called his “replacement,” Ross Douthat: “He’ll do a great job.

TV

President Obama hits the airwaves with his economic message. Chicago Tribune’s Phil Rosenthal says Jay Leno may just be the start- and he has some interesting ideas for the President. “He could empathize with the boys of ‘Two and a Half Men’ if their mother has to move in. He could explain to folks on ’90210′ why they should have bought homes in less-glitzy ZIP codes they could actually afford. He could visit ‘Flip This House’ and tell them to just knock it off already.”

Fox’s Glenn Beck responded to MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on his show last night, invoking Tim Russert. “If you miss him, you should become him… When journalists decide that the only thing that sends a chill down their leg is integrity, well then maybe America will be able to trust them again.”

RADIO

AdAge is reporting that major media companies are pressuring Google to elevate their “expensive online content” to the top sphere of Google’s search results.

MAGAZINES

Yesterday, WaPo book critic Ron Charles posted on Twitter that The New Yorker was considering reducing its frequency. You could practically hear the sound of 600 media reporters picking up their phones in response, but soon New Yorker editor David Remnick denied the rumor.

NEWS NOTES

Secretary Hillary Clinton’s State Department has “embarked on a digital diplomacy drive aimed at spreading the word about American foreign policy and restoring Washington’s image.” Read more here.

In a report called “Getting Away With Murder 2009,” the Committee to Protect Journalists has found that violence against the press often goes unpunished. “Our findings indicate that the failure to solve journalist murders perpetuates further violence against the press,” said CPJ’s Joel Simon.
