  • A sign of things to come? The NBCUniversal News Group is touting special coverage of the terrible drought the U.S. is currently facing. NBC news, CNBC, MSNBC, The Weather Channel, Telemundo and NBCNews.com are all planning special coverage for tomorrow, with an eye toward their particular audiences (i.e. financial impact on CNBC, Latino impact on Telemundo).
  • Fox News is launching a new iPad app, “You Decide 2012 Map” that let’s users predict how the electoral college will shake up during the 2012 election.

Bush advisor Karl Rove and former Howard Dean campaign manager Joe Trippi — both Fox News contributors — deliver their predictions and analysis through the map.” Video of Rove, Trippi and Bret Baier using the app after the jump.
