The Ticker: Zite, Kathie Lee, Language

  • ReadWrite covers Zite, the social iPad app acquired by CNN last year. The story, unlike many acquisition tales, is a positive one. “There is a deep respect from me and the other CNN execs for the Zite team,” KC Estenson said. “We are not bullshitting about how much we get along and how well we work together.”
  • The ABC/Univision partnership posts an item taking a look at language on Fox News Channel (h/t J$P). The focus is the use of the word “illegal” in reference to immigrants. As noted by the author, some FNC contributors are not fans of the term.
