NEWPAPERS

Rep. Frank Wolf called for a NYT reporter at a hearing on the Hill yesterday to explain why with everything going on, they ran a story on President Obama’s graying hair on page 1. From Washington Whispers, “‘The New York Times has a front-page story today on the fact that Barack Obama’s hair is turning gray, and the chairman is having a great hearing with great witnesses and they have never even covered this,’ Republican Wolf barked. ‘Do we wonder why our factories are empty and we’re in a period of decay on this issue? I think the media, quite frankly, whoever is with the New York Times, you just aren’t doing your job.’”

From the Denver Post, “‘Individuated’ news tested,” in a MediaNews Group trial run, readers will pick the daily information sent to them. They call it the “newspaper of the not-too-distant future.”

TV

From the AP’s David Bauder, “Obama administration goes after cable chatter.”

In the same week we learned MSNBC’s Chris Matthews doesn’t know who D.L. Hughley is, CNN cancels the show. TVNewser reports first the show will end its run at the end of this month and the decision was Hughley’s.

RADIO

More on Rush Limbaugh vs. Team Obama in Howard Kurtz’ Media Notes today, “Healthy Debate.”

From DCRTV: “Paul Harvey substitute hosts Gil Gross and Doug Limerick will be replacing the radio veteran, who died Saturday. Gross will handle the 8:30 morning report, the 15-minute midday report, and the Saturday midday show. Limerick will do the afternoon report and Saturday morning edition. Harvey’s show airs locally on WMAL.”

NEWS NOTES

What is it like to travel inside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s press bubble? Find out here. “… The dozen Washington-based journalists who follow her wherever she goes complained that they’d been frozen out of the behind-the-scenes details just as abruptly as the stymied motorists forced to watch her drive by under the baleful stares of red-bereted Palestinian soldiers toting AK-47s… one correspondent for a prominent East Coast daily whined that he felt ‘like we’re the traveling Russian press.’”

NEWPAPERS

From Sunday’s WaPo, Howie Kurtz‘s Media Notes, “Under Weight of Its Mistakes, Newspaper Industry Staggers.”

From DCRTV: “Even though its circulation numbers continue to plunge, the Washington Post is raising its subscription delivery price from 41-cents to 49-cents per weekday and Saturday. Beginning Monday, 3/2. That’s a 19.5 percent hike. The newsstand daily price is 75-cents. No hike in the Sunday $1.50 price…”

WaPo Ombudsman Andrew Alexander takes on the George Will “Dark Green Doomsayers” from two weeks ago, criticized for fuzzy facts on global warming. “Opinion columnists are free to choose whatever facts bolster their arguments. But they aren’t free to distort them.”

RADIO

ABC Radio broadcaster Paul Harvey died Saturday at the age of 90. From Reuters: “Working out of Chicago, Harvey started his show each day by barking, ‘Hello, Americans, this is Paul Harvey! Stand by for news!’ and would sign off with a forceful ‘Paul Harvey…good day!’”

Statements from President George W. Bush, Paul Harvey Jr. and ABC Radio Networks President James Robinson can be found here, and a profile from WaPo’s Marc Fisher here.

From WaPo’s Potomac Confidential, “Bloggers Can’t Fill the Gap Left by Shrinking Press Corp.”

NEWS NOTES

Washington Whispers asks “…is Frank Luntz, the former Republican golden boy who provided the party with so many winning words and phrases, the model of modern, Obama-style bipartisanship or a GOP traitor?” Luntz makes regular cable tv appearances.
