We really can’t keep up with this story– FNC vs. MSNBC.

TV Week interviews CBS’ chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan. She says, “this was never about a job or a career for me, or ‘being on TV.’ It was what I believed in – it was who I am. I became a journalist because of what I saw or could not see in South Africa. Because we all believed something had to be done to make things right in my country, and letting the world know the truth was the way to do that.”

PBS Sunday announced three new programs for 2010 on religion in America- “The Buddha,” “God in America” and “The Calling.” (h/t B&C

WEST WING REPORTAGE

Greg Sargent weighs in on President Obama’s availability to White House reporters. “If reporters fail to ask Obama questions that get him to make news, it’s hard to see how this is the White House’s fault. But that aside, if the networks don’t want to cover pressers because they’re losing money or because they think the pressers aren’t newsworthy enough, maybe they should just, you know, not cover them.”

NEWS NOTES

NYT: Newsweek is escalating its pressure on the government of Iran to release Maziar Bahari, a prominent journalist who was detained there during the country’s post-election protests in June. The newsmagazine is strenuously objecting to Bahari’s treatment in the country, where he has yet to receive access to a lawyer.

A rumor that Sarah and Todd Palin were divorcing circulated this weekend– but is CNN to blame?

NEWSPAPERS

Senator John Kerry (D-MA) on the future of newspapers in The Hill: “There also is still some question of whether online journalism will sustain the values of professional journalism, the way the newspaper industry has for decades. And will the emerging news media be more fragmented by special interests and political partisanship?” Senator Kerry chairs the Senate Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet, which held hearings on the future of journalism last month.

E&P: A Hearst-wide investigative project that includes participation from seven of the chain’s newspapers, as well as many of its television stations, is set to be published in less than two weeks, according to editors.

There may be widespread cuts coming to WRC, NBC’s channel 4, after a newsroom reorganization and switch to new digital technologies, according to WaPo.

Did you know that Fox Business Network’s Peter Barnes is also a children’s book publisher? He’s profiled in WaPo.

ONLINE

NYT’s Brian Stelter reported that web traffic (or more accurately, lack of) may have been the reason behind WaPo’s sudden dismissal of columnist Dan Froomkin. He’s since moved off to HuffPost and Arianna Huffington is confident. “I have no doubt that Dan, both as an editor and as a writer, will be a traffic magnet for us.”

MAGAZINES

Since his arrest by Iranian authorities last month, Maziar Bahari‘s employer, Newsweek has been making pleas for his release.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed for the release of the two US journalists currently detained in North Korea. “The two journalists and their families have expressed great remorse for this incident,” Clinton said Saturday. “And I think everyone is very sorry that it happened. What we hope for now is that these two young women would be granted amnesty through the North Korean system and be allowed to return home to their families as soon as possible.” (h/t Politico)

Is DC the real winner in this recession?

WEST WING REPORTAGE

Think you work harder than Bill Burton? WaPo‘s Michael Shear reports: “In a city where work can border on obsession, the Obama staffers stand out. They are not quite the walking dead, but their eyes are frequently ringed with the bags that accompany exhaustion. “This is a place, because of the stress, the schedule and the sheer hours, that just chews people up and spits them out,” said press secretary Robert Gibbs, whose alarm clock is set to 4:30 a.m., though he ignores the early ring more often these days.”

Newsweek Defends Reporter Detained in Iran

Maziar Bahari, Newsweek reporter on Iran was asleep at 7 a.m. when security officers showed up to his Tehran apartment to seize his laptop, several videotapes and to take him into custody. Newsweek‘s Jon Meacham quickly issued a statement condemning the detention of Bahari and calling for his immediate release. That was ten days ago.

Today, the magazine is again calling for Bahari’s release in the below statement:

“Maziar Bahari has been detained in Iran since June 21 without access to a lawyer. An Iranian state news agency reports that Bahari has said he participated in a Western media effort to promote irresponsible reporting in Iran. Newsweek strongly disputes that charge, and defends Bahari’s work. Maziar Bahari is a veteran journalist whose long career, both in print and in documentary filmmaking, has been accurate, even-handed, and widely respected. Newsweek again calls for his immediate release.”
