NEWSPAPERS

NYT ran an op-ed Sunday by President Obama and has actually decided not to charge syndication clients who want to run the piece after some complaints from editorial page editors.

TV

Fox News was the second most-watched basic cable channel in primetime last week, only behind USA. FNC was 5th overall in Total Day viewership. MSNBC was 24th in primetime and 32nd in Total Day. CNN ranked 26th in prime and 23rd in Total Day. And Glenn Beck, in particular, had a great week, ratings-wise.

Also, a good week for MSNBC in primetime.

Gail Shister profiles CNN’s Michael Ware for TVNewser.

RADIO

NPR has selected the three budding journos who will participate in a year-long intensive training and reporting program at NPR and member stations- congrats to Carolyn Beeler, Habiba Nosheen and Sam Sanders. More at FishbowlNY.

WEST WING REPORTAGE

Earlier this week former deputy press secretary to Presidents Nixon and Ford Jerry Warren said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs can be “too jovial about serious things.” Now, the Daily Beast’s Lee Siegel calls Gibbs “smug.” Poor guy can’t win.
