The New York Times, in a paroxysm of media self-reflection, has no less than 5 articles on, well, the media, publishing, and even an article about the NYT itself:

Network News at a Crossroads

Deal Will Put Times Content on 850 Screens

Condé Nast Is Preparing iPad Versions of Some of Its Top Magazines

Survey Finds Slack Editing on Magazine Web Sites

Math of Publishing Meets the E-Book

Oh, yeah, there was an earthquake somewhere, AIG sold some unit or another, and there may be some motion on financial regulation. But other than that, its all media all the time!

    I wonder what the media was going through or what the media looked like as Caesar fiddled ?

  3. There is a 6th column on a WaPo cancellation of a political column, The Party

  4. troubled times says:

    So the SEC wants to go from US GAAP accounting standard to something more like IFRS or the international standard. Foxification ? Or a commie plot ? Lets see if Glenn Beck picks up on this

    Snark on: Conde’ Nast is probably good content for those willing to overpay for iPads. Snark off.

    The Houston Chronicle is already making the transition with videos of “news” including this one, which looks like something from a local TV news outlet.

  6. Its Me says:


    In that first article about profitability, Fox News wasn’t mentioned once. I guess F** News doesn’t exist in the NYT world.


    BR: Nah, they mention it all the time:

  7. Its Me says:

    On the second article about being put on OMG, 850 screens. That’s as exciting as me publishing that I ran 3 miles yesterday and that by week five I hope to break 30 minutes.

    In other words Yawn!

  8. good thing they had those stories..

    then, ones, as below, no longer “Fit to Print”..

    Obama Signs Patriot Act Extension
    February 28th, 2010

    Via: AP:

    President Barack Obama has signed a one-year extension of several provisions in the nation’s main counterterrorism law, the Patriot Act.

    Provisions in the measure would have expired on Sunday without Obama’s signature Saturday.

    The act, which was adopted in the weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, expands the government’s ability to monitor Americans in the name of national security.

    Three sections of the Patriot Act that stay in force will:

    -Authorize court-approved roving wiretaps that permit surveillance on multiple phones.

    -Allow court-approved seizure of records and property in anti-terrorism operations.

    -Permit surveillance against a so-called lone wolf, a non-U.S. citizen engaged in terrorism who may not be part of a recognized terrorist group.

    Obama’s signature comes after the House voted 315 to 97 Thursday to extend the measure.

    The Senate also approved the measure, with privacy protections cast aside when Senate Democrats lacked the necessary 60-vote supermajority to pass them. Thrown away were restrictions and greater scrutiny on the government’s authority to spy on Americans and seize their records…

  9. troubled times says:

    And NBC signed a extension with thier “5000 sleepers cells here in the USA ” terrorism expert too. Or did Fox hire that guy as well.

    It’s only going to get worse.

    They are camped out on every bit that crosses the network, voice or data. World-wide.
