NEWSPAPERS

NYT: After months of bitter struggle that included a threat to shut down The Boston Globe, the New York Times Company and the paper’s largest union reached a tentative contract settlement on Tuesday night, with employees agreeing to significant cuts in wages, benefits, and job security.

WaPo’s Katharine Weymouth spoke Saturday at the Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism’s commencement- the school also honored Roxana Saberi with its Medal for Courage. Weymouth said, “I believe firmly that great journalism – the need for good old-fashioned beat and enterprise reporting — has never been more important. Certainly no one would argue that there isn’t enough news to report anymore. Nor do I believe that people’s interest or engagement in the news has changed. What has changed is the number of voices out there, the role that media plays in our lives and the business model that has supported journalism. This is a time of great transformation — but it’s also a time of great anticipation and creativity.” Read her speech here.

TV

Playbook reports this morning that there are “so many technicians and journalists are on the grounds that the Secret Service ran out of laminated “PRESS” passes and was giving “TOUR” tags to reporters.”

BOOKS

Roxana Saberi is working on a memoir of her arrest, sentence and release in Iran, to be published by HarperCollins in March 2010, according to the AP.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney is penning a memoir expected out in spring 2011, a few months after former President George W. Bush’s book comes out, the AP points out. In an interview with the AP, Cheney said, “I want my grandkids, 20 or 30 years from now, to be able to read it and understand what I did, and why I did it.”

NEWS NOTES

We seriously did not believe this when we first heard it, but now there’s video proof. Remember Buzz Aldrin, the second man to set foot on the Moon, an American icon?
