NEWSPAPERS

AP: The New York Times Co. said Thursday its second-quarter profit climbed nearly 85 percent, as it cut costs aggressively to deal with a worsening decline in advertising. Its stock jumped in premarket trading.

Things got a little tense at a Metro press conference yesterday when Metro’s general manager had some criticism of WaPo‘s coverage. Get the scoop from WUSA here.

TV

Who is America’s most trusted newscasted? Brian Williams? No. Charlie Gibson? No. Katie Couric? No. According to a Time poll, it is actually Jon Stewart.

“Birthers” are back in the news. TVNewser: CNN is separating itself from the radio commentary of one of its lead hosts, Lou Dobbs, who seemed to support the validity of thinking President Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. A CNN spokesperson says: “On CNN, Lou is an independent reporter who covers stories that people are talking about.”

More on how cable’s been covering this story on TVNewser.

And The Daily Show‘s take on birthers- Stewart to Dobbs, “Do you even watch CNN?”

CNN’s “Black in America 2″ went live in Times Square last evening.

MAGAZINES

Time’s cover story is a special report, “The Final Days of Bush and Cheney.”

WEST WING REPORTAGE

Politico‘s Playbook fills us in on what White House spokesman Reid Cherlin got for his birthday- “Burton serenaded him with the Stevie Wonder version of ‘Happy Birthday’… Pfeiffer shined his shoes… Nick Shapiro added two of Reid’s fave movies to his Netflix queue. We made great progress on health care reform.”

This Week In Pool Reports

In this week’s episode, the First Dogs frolicked in the snow, Obama wins the little discussed playgroud primary and President Bush loves teasing the poolers.

  • “The pool enjoyed a brief respite from the icy weather when we walked through the White House to the motorcade past a small fragment of spring: dozens of daffodils in tubs awaiting planting. Back into the cold: In the Rose Garden, there was evidence of the First Dogs frolicking in the snow,(pawprints, not yellow snow). But clearly the icy grounds were considered too much for their delicate paws, as in front of the White House there was a specially plowed 20 foot area for them.” — Caroline Daniel, Financial Times

  • The following exchange was overheard by another pooler, between younger boys at the first table, as the president schmoozed elsewhere. Sorry, names weren’t collected.
    1st kid: ‘He’s my favorite president.’ (referring to Bush)
    2d kid: ‘My favorite president is President Obama.’
    1st kid: ‘Who’s that?’
    2d kid: ‘He’s the first black president.’
    Todd Gillman, Dallas Morning News

  • Last note: As we were ushered out of the Oval, Bush took note of New York Times’ photographer Doug Mills’ dome. ‘May I suggest a hat on your bald head?’ Bush joked. ‘He always gives me grief when I don’t have a hat on,’ said Mills. He showed Bush he indeed had a fleece cap; Mills just wasn’t wearing it inside the Oval. ‘Every president since Reagan has made a comment about his bald head,’ mused fellow AP shooter Ron Edmonds.” — Tara Copp, Austin American-Statesman

  • “A day after Barack Obama launched his presidential campaign invoking Abraham Lincoln, President Bush toasted ‘the incredible life of the man who saved the union.’ The occasion was a black-tie dinner in the White House’s State Dining Room marking the Ford’s Theatre’s celebration of the 198th anniversary of nation’s 16th president.” — Finlay Lewis, Copley

  • Bush Loves Bald People

    From today’s pool report:

      Last note: As we were ushered out of the Oval, Bush took note of New York Times’ photographer Doug Mills’ dome.

      “May I suggest a hat on your bald head?” Bush joked.

      “He always gives me grief when I don’t have a hat on,” said Mills. He showed Bush he indeed had a fleece cap; Mills just wasn’t wearing it inside the Oval.

      “Every president since Reagan has made a comment about his bald head,” mused fellow AP shooter Ron Edmonds.
