FishbowlDC: The Kennedy family has turned to Twitter and the Web to get word out about plans for Sen. Edward Kennedy‘s memorial. Check it out at @KennedyNews and TedKennedy.org.

Wall Street Journal: Tribune‘s bondholders have called Sam Zell‘s $8.2 billion takeover of the company in 2007 a “fraudalent conveyance” that plunged Tribune into bankruptcy and have asked the bankruptcy court for permission to investigate.

New York Times: William A. Emerson Jr., an editor in chief of The Saturday Evening Post, died Tuesday at age 86.

The Observer: The New Yorker has appointed a new managing editor, 26-year-old Amelia Lester, a former fact-checker for the magazine. She is replacing Kate Julian, who is moving to Washington, D.C. where her husband just got a job.

E!: Kate Gosselin will be one of the subs filling in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck on “The View” while the conservative mommy is on maternity leave. “It appears Gosselin has taken the conservative host’s riled-up advice, dished out on the show in June, to ‘get a job,’” the E! article said. “Bet Hasselbeck wasn’t expecting it to be hers.”
