BayNewser: The Wall Street Journal is launching its local San Francisco edition tomorrow. WSJ told BayNewser that editing and reporting on the edition will be done by current Journal staff — compared to The New York Times‘ Bay Area pub, which is looking for partners to produce content.

MediaWeek: Reader’s Digest Association folds quarterly Christian-themed magazine and Rick Warren vehicle Purpose Driven Connection.

New York Observer: John Seeley, former deputy managing editor of The New York Sun, has been picked to lead The Wall Street Journal‘s new New York-focused section.

Editor & Publisher: About 50 newspapers who have given The Associated Press notice that they may cancel their subscriptions have rescinded their cancellation notices in recent months. About 130 remain under cancellation notices, while papers like The New York Daily News have said they won’t end their relationship with the AP.

Wall Street Journal: No surprise here: newspapers are suffering from severe advertising declines and need to show some real gains soon in order to have any chance of survival.

YouTube is number one on the list (although we agree with BayNewser that the classification of that site as “mainstream media” is a bit of a stretch) and The New York Times‘s site is number two. Another New York-based paper, The Wall Street Journal ranks number four. The top five is rounded out by guardian.co.uk at #3 and The Washington Post at #5.
