Diane Sawyer’s Clinton Interview Draws 6 Million Viewers (TVNewser)
According to preliminary Nielsen data, Diane Sawyer’s interview with Hillary Clinton averaged 6.079 million viewers in the 9 p.m. ET hour Monday night. Sawyer had the first interview with Clinton as the former Secretary of State began her press tour for Hard Choices, out Tuesday. FishbowlDC ABC led CBS and NBC in viewers for the hour. On top in ratings Monday night was Fox, which aired 24 and averaged 6.333 million viewers in the 9 to 10 p.m. hour. Deadline Hollywood However, the interview drew a 1.0 in the demo, finishing last in the 9 p.m. hour among the Big 4 networks. CNN Clinton also appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America Tuesday to promote her book. Hard Choices is about Clinton’s years as President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state, which she stepped away from early last year. In her ABC appearances, she honed what is likely to be her book tour message — one of a thoughtful diplomat who is prepared to reintroduce herself to voters, especially women. With her book lining the walls of booksellers nationwide, Clinton also stopped at a Barnes & Noble in Manhattan Tuesday for her first book signing of the two-week tour. NBC News While Clinton has been traveling the country doing paid speeches in recent months, this book tour will put her on a much more rigorous — and campaign-like — schedule. She will visit at least 15 different cities over the next two weeks, including Washington, Philadelphia, Seattle, Los Angeles, Kansas City and Austin. Plus, she is doing a host of television interviews to promote the book, including with NBC News, CBS News, CNN and Fox News.

Prometheus Global Media to Acquire Mediabistro (FishbowlNY)
Thursday morning, Mediabistro announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its editorial and e-commerce assets to PGM-MB Holdings, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Prometheus Global Media, for $8 million cash. FishbowlDC As part of the deal, PrometheusGM will add to its portfolio mediabistro.com and editorial sites including FishbowlDC, FishbowlNY, TVNewser and PRNewser, as well as the Mediabistro Job Board, and Mediabistro’s education business. THR Prometheus Global Media is the parent company of The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard and Adweek magazines. Mashable The deal still needs shareholder approval, which could happen by mid-July. The tradeshow portion of the company will remain with Mediabistro CEO Alan Meckler under a new company — Mecklermedia. The company’s 3D printing and bitcoin assets are also not a part of the deal. The site gained a following in media circles, particularly in New York and Washington, D.C., thanks in part to its job board and professional skill development courses. The acquisition provides Prometheus with a new cadre of editorial pieces that fit with the company’s other focused media assets. Prometheus also runs the Clio Awards for advertising and the movie event company Film Expo Group. Poynter / MediaWire Mediabistro alums include Brian Stelter, who wrote for TVNewser and now hosts Reliable Sources at CNN, and Patrick Gavin, who worked for FishbowlDC. In 2007, Laurel Touby sold Mediabistro.com for $23 million.

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist Judith Miller Joins Newsmax

Judith Miller, the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter with The New York Times, is now a contributing writer for Newsmax magazine. Miller, who turns 63 on Sunday, will focus on national security and foreign relations issues.  

Her first article for Newsmax has been published in the January 2011 issue, an exclusive story about the Middle Eastern drug trade. 

She spent 28 years at the Times, writing many articles about the War in Iraq. Her stories about Weapons of Mass Destruction came under fire. It was learned later that many of those pieces were either inaccurate or completely false.

Miller was also one of the reporters that famously tipped off a White House official that Valerie Plame was an undercover CIA agent.

Miller has authored a handful of books.
