Taking Out The Trash

What we almost missed today…

• Tonight’s primetime press conference is a costly one. B&C reports that according to the latest ad pricing data from Nielsen, this 8-9pm Wednesday slot generates around $21.5 million for the big four. Maybe that’s why Fox is only carrying it on cable.

• NYO’s Felix Gillette reports today that the NBC Washington Bureau is considering renting out some space, possibly to neighboring American University.

• E&P reports the Newspaper Association of America is cutting its staff by 50% and will no longer print its magazine Presstime.

• Al Jazeera is coming to a TV near you. WaPo reports that through an agreement with MHz, Al Jazeera English “will become available today to households throughout the Washington area, and to cable and broadcast viewers in 20 other cities in a few months.”

• The Roosevelt Institute has pulled together a bunch of media types and progressive advocacy people as contributors for a new progressive economics blog, New Deal 2.0. Regular contributors include The Nation‘s Chris Hayes, The New Yorker‘s Hendrik Hertzberg, NYO‘s Joe Conason, The American Prospect‘s Robert Kuttner and more.
