Reinvention draws near for Newsweek - International Herald Tribune
Newsweek reinventing itself with new design, going after richer customers and richer advertisers. As much as the product sounds good, it's hard to see how it's anything but a business model of the gaps: cutting back on the things that are being competed for and keeping the stuff that isn't, rather than figuring out what product your readers actually want and giving them that.

ownership vs rent
changing models of ownership and possession for the Internet age. Not sure I agree with this. I've come to think that streaming (renting) penalizes those without constant net access: it's an offline tax.

Media Bias: Going beyond Fair and Balanced: Scientific American
Groeling’s work is one of the few studies to quantify partisan bias in the media, a subject notoriously difficult for social scientists to research and discuss. These scientists work with theories such as the socalled hostile media effect to predict that ardent supporters of a cause will view media as slanted for the other side, and they have conducted hundreds of studies that have revealed imbalances in the ways journalists frame news on topics ranging from AIDS to the war in Iraq.
