The purpose is ‘to help readers navigate and mine the paper and its Web site,’ according to an editor’s note.”

  • A CNN release announced, “Following a campaign coverage strategy of creating mini-bureaus in key political battleground states, CNN has parked the CNN Election Express in Philadelphia this week to create a full-time reporting presence for the April 22 Pennsylvania primary.”

  • TVNewser reports, “This morning marked new NBC/MSNBC analyst Harold Ford, Jr.’s first appearance on Morning Joe. Co-anchor Joe Scarborough brought up his time in congress with Ford, and how the pair ‘transcended politics,’ as they sat on opposite sides of the aisle.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “U.S. advertising spending was little changed in the fourth quarter as a weakening economy prompted marketers to cut newspaper and radio ads, according to TNS Media Intelligence.”

  • USA Today reports, “Advertisers and marketers, struggling to keep up with changing consumer habits, are about to make massive investments in new digital and out-of-home media platforms, according to a forecast out today from research firm PQ Media.”

  • A release announced, “FOX 5 finishes the March 2008 news race as the #1 choice for late news in key adult demographics, announced Duffy Dyer, the station’s Vice President and General Manager. ‘FOX 5 News Edge at 11′ and ‘FOX 5 News at 10′ rank #1 in their respective time periods.”

  • JackMeyers.com reports, “Assuming this week’s release of fourth quarter GDP data confirms an official recessionary economy, marketers, media companies, economists and unofficial economic pundits will weigh in with appropriately reactionary forecasts of ad industry doom and gloom.”

Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade were talking about Barack Obama’s recent characterization of his grandmother on a Philadelphia radio show: She was a ‘typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred into our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes comes out in the wrong way.’ ‘Can you say ‘typical white person’ if you’re white?’ asked Mr. Doocy. Of course not, noted Ms. Carlson. There’s no way that Senator Hillary Clinton could use the phrase ‘typical black person,’ they noted. ‘So there is a certain double standard in society,’ said Ms. Carlson. And also: ‘I sort of take offense at that line: ‘typical white.” Mr. Wallace was getting a little bit annoyed. ‘I didn’t think it was fair. I didn’t think it allowed Obama to make his point,’ Mr. Wallace later told The Observer in a telephone interview.”

    ONLINE MEDIA

  • 24/7 Wall St. presents, “The Twenty-Five Most Valuable Blogs”

  • Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert writes, “How dreadful was the news coverage last week surrounding the official release of Hillary Clinton’s public White House schedule from her eight years as first lady? So bad that I found myself in rare (unprecedented?) agreement with at least two prominent conservative bloggers who noticed the same thing I did: The Beltway press corps is, at times, a national embarrassment.”

  • Huffington Post’s Rachel Sklar reports, “Hillary Clinton’s Bosnia Story A Hit On YouTube!”

  • Gangrey.com presents the winner of the 2008 Goat Awards.

  • Media Week reports, “Time Inc., which has been hit by sweeping layoffs in recent years, has continued to pare its head count in its quest for cost-savings, albeit in smaller ways. This Old House shed four people in the past few weeks in communications, production and TV production, while at Sports Illustrated, a handful of people were laid off from the title’s Picture Collection archive. (Some of the SI staffers were to be assigned to other positions in the company, a Time Inc. spokesperson said.)”

  • Mesh Media Strategies reports, “I was privileged to join a group of bloggers, along with TV news executives and personnel from the Washington DC area, Monday night for a reception and private tour of the soon-to-open Newseum in the nation’s capital. In a word, it is spectacular.”

  • The Annenberg School for Communication at USC Online Journalism Review reports, “J-schools need to encourage and develop, not inhibit, students’ passion — not only for the favorite topics, but for the craft of journalism itself.”

  • MinOnline reports, “Tribune Media Services (TMS), the content syndication and licensing division of Chicago-based Tribune Company, will launch a new weekly political commentary magazine called Opinionated: Voices and Viewpoints on America and the World.”

  • The San Jose Business Journal reports, “Yahoo Inc.’s HotJobs feature on Tuesday launched a search ranking algorithm called REAL — Relevance, Engagement, Availability and Location. Sunnyvale-based Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) said the system is part of an overall strategic initiative designed to ‘make the recruiting process more efficient using Yahoo technology and to provide recruiters with unique insights into job seeker behavior.’”

    MAGAZINES

  • Reader’s Digest’s Carl Cannon was interviewed on C-SPAN by Bob Schieffer this past weekend. Check out the interview here.

  • What you missed last night: Atlantic Media’s Journalism on Tap, a panel discussion on the upcoming election.

  • WWD.com reports, “Financial market turbulence, housing bubble bursts, Bear Stearns collapses — no wonder advertising isn’t looking rosy (or that most publishers don’t want to go on the record and talk about it). As the end of the first half draws near for magazines, business looks soft. Through April, the latest Media Industry Newsletter numbers show ad pages declined for most fashion titles and the unpredictable economy makes it impossible to predict how things will end up by June, much less the entire year.”

    RADIO

  • A release announced, “Beginning Wednesday, April 2, at 9 p.m., the National Symphony Orchestra will return to the airwaves of Classical WETA 90.9 FM. Performances are being drawn from NSO archives, and most broadcast programs will feature repertoire from multiple NSO concerts. These two-hour broadcasts will take place on the first Wednesday of each month for the next year. WETA’s John Chester will host. The series is made possible by WETA’s Friends of Classical Music, including Patricia Sagon.”

  • The Wall Street Journal writes, “The Justice Department’s approval this week of the XM-Sirius satellite radio merger was a long time coming — maybe too long given that the deal was announced more than a year ago. Still, credit Antitrust Division chief Thomas Barnett for making the right call in the end.”

  • The Wall Street Journal reports, “One of the marquee deals of the now-faded corporate buyout boom was close to collapse Tuesday night, a victim of the credit-market turmoil that began last summer. The planned $19 billion privatization of the nation’s largest radio broadcaster, Clear Channel Communications Inc., looked increasingly likely to fall through as the private-equity firms and banks backing the transaction failed to resolve their differences over final financing terms, people familiar with the matter said. It would be one of the biggest leveraged buyouts yet to implode as the upheaval in global credit markets has made it nearly impossible for banks that financed such deals to spread their risk by packaging their loans for sale to other investors. That’s left many banks exposed to massive losses they have been trying to avoid.”

  • His Extreme-ness analyzes “Richard Cohen’s Me-mail.”

  • MarketWatch reports, “Chairman Rupert Murdoch said Monday that most U.S. newspapers suffer from declining classified advertising, with help-wanted ads headed to the Web ‘almost completely.’ The results force such papers to cut down on journalists and international bureaus, and ‘at smaller papers, even just local coverage.’ Newspapers will not go away, Murdoch said.”

  • Bloomberg reports, “Billionaire Sam Zell is traveling the U.S. using pep talks laced with profanity to exhort Tribune Co.’s 19,000 employees to be more creative or risk seeing their jobs disappear. The real estate mogul turned chairman of Chicago-based Tribune has used the f-word and called himself the human equivalent of Viagra to address what ails one of the company’s newspapers, the 126-year-old Los Angeles Times.”

  • AJR reports, “A federal judge’s ruling requiring a former USA Today reporter to personally pay heavy fines for not identifying confidential sources stirs concern among journalists and First Amendment advocates.”

  • Frank Foer on “My epistolary relationship with William F. Buckley.”

  • An ABC release announced, “‘ABC’s World News with Charles Gibson’ averaged 8.99 million Total Viewers and a 2.3/8 among Adults 25-54 during the week of March 3rd. For the week, ‘World News’ placed first in the Adult 25-54 rating (2.3), tying NBC’s ‘Nightly News.’ Compared to this week last year, ‘World News’ grew its Total Viewing audience (+1%) and held its demo audience.”

  • A NBC release announced, “According to Nielsen Media Research
    data, ‘NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams’ was the most-watched network evening newscast, winning the week of March 3, 2008. The Williams-led newscast averaged 9.541 million total viewers”

  • An ABC release announced, “To mark the fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq, ABC News will feature the special series, ‘Iraq 5 Years Later: Where Things Stand,’ the latest installment in its Emmy-award winning series of reports. Over the past five years, this comprehensive series has periodically examined how the Iraqi people and the country are faring in the wake of the US-led invasion. As in past installments, on- and off-air reporters were dispatched to nearly two dozen cities and towns across the country, and ABC News commissioned an exclusive, national public opinion poll of more than 2,200 Iraqis. ‘Iraq 5 Years Later: Where Things Stand’ will begin airing across ABC News’ broadcasts and platforms on Saturday, March 15, 2008 and will continue through the week.”

  • “‘It was a good show. I’m proud of it,’ Tucker Carlson tells TVNewser about his now-canceled MSNBC daily program, which began in 2005.”

  • Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert writes, “Less than one second. That’s how long it took Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to answer, ‘Of course not,’ to Steve Kroft’s question on 60 Minutes about whether she thought Sen. Barack Obama was a Muslim. You can time it yourself by watching the clip at YouTube. Still, that didn’t stop MSNBC’s Chris Matthews from complaining on-air last week that it took Clinton ‘the longest time’ to answer Kroft’s question.”

  • New York Times reports, “Now hear this: NBC Universal is not for sale. No how, no way. Looking to squelch persistent rumors, Jeffrey R. Immelt, the chairman of General Electric, plans to make his most definitive statement yet about his company’s chief media asset.”

  • USA Today reports, “If Kevin Martin, the Republican chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, is smarting from bruising battles last year with fellow commissioners, Congress and the cable industry, he’s showing no signs of it.”

    ONLINE MEDIA

  • Reuters reports, “A majority of Americans do not read political blogs, the online commentaries that have proliferated in the race for the U.S. presidency, according to a poll released on Monday. Only 22 percent of people responding to the poll said they read blogs regularly, meaning several times a month or more, according to the survey conducted by Harris Interactive.”

  • A release announced, “USA TODAY announces the launch of a new online consumer advertising campaign. The campaign will feature banner advertising within online ad networks, internet portals, social networks and on entertainment, leisure and lifestyle websites. The campaign encourages consumers to become active members of the USA TODAY online community and was developed by Arnold Worldwide.”

  • Romenesko points out, “Why didn’t the deaths of eight US soldiers make page one? … That’s what a Washington Post chat participant asks Thomas Ricks.”

  • What do WTOP and Extreme Mortman have in common? His Extreme-ness tells us here.

  • The AP reports, “The Web site of The New York Times suffered substantial delays Monday as traffic spiked following its reports linking Gov. Eliot Spitzer to a prostitution ring. Normally, the Times site takes about three seconds to load. Just minutes after the Times posted its first article on Spitzer at about 1:57 p.m., average load times increased to more than 20 seconds, according to Keynote Systems Inc., a company that measures Web site performance. Keynote checked the Times site using automated probes in 10 U.S. cities.”

  • A release announced, “First Online Free Expression Day to be launched on Reporters Without Borders website under UNESCO patronage
    on March 12″

  • Wired.com reports, “The Fox News Network is a ratings leader in cable news. But the channel is a loser when it comes to protecting its Fox mark. The World Intellectual Property Organization is concluding that a Florida businessman is the rightful owner to foxbusinessnetwork.com. Still, WIPO said it was ‘suspicious’ that the name was registered the same day the Rupert Murdoch-owned network announced February 2007 it was launching a business news channel.”

  • Buzz Flash.com reports,Reverend Moon – Source of Right-Wing Funding and ‘The Washington Times’ — Comes to Life in ‘Bad Moon Rising’”

  • Information Week reports, “Despite the attention given to political blogs, only one in five Americans read them regularly, a research firm said Monday. In fact, 56% of Americans say they never read blogs that discuss politics, and just under a quarter say they read them several times a year, Harris Interactive found in a survey of more than 2,300 U.S. adults. Surprisingly, those who read blogs are less likely to be young adults. Some 19% of adults aged 18 to 31 read political blogs regularly, defined as several times a month or more; and only 17 % of people aged 32 to 43 say the same.”

  • The ClickZ Network reports, “The digital magazine market still represents only a fraction of its print counterpart, but a study to be released today suggests that people who subscribe to magazines online are more engaged with the advertising than those who read them in print.”

  • The Hollywood Reporter reports, “The Nielsen Co. is set to introduce Tuesday a series of quarterly reports aimed at fostering community interaction online, beginning with a study examining the correlation between bloggers and the boxoffice. While Nielsen PreView is launching with a film-centric report timed to this week’s ShoWest, the new venture plans to coordinate with many of Nielsen’s myriad research divisions to create market intelligence relevant to all aspects of the entertainment industry. The research will be made available at NielsenPreview.com, where registration is available to the public or to paid members who can access additional information as well as make recommendations on future research topics.”
