At long last, another round-up of media notes from the world over:
Red All Over – Slate’s Farhad Manjoo on how print newspapers are still better than the new Kindle. Oh — and so’s getting your news on the iPhone.
They Call Him Flipper – Google’s working on another new tweak to Google News called “Flipper,” a visual way of sifting through the day’s news online. All this news innovation, and yet none of it from newspapers themselves. As usual!
That’s The Way It Is – TV news icon Walter Cronkite is “gravely ill.”
Sick Leave – Gannett Co. CEO Craig Dubow takes medical leave, increasing worry about the state of the media company.
Face the Book – Authors ready a Facebook tell-all soaked with money, sex and greed. Of course.
iPhone Fail – WSJ tech guru Walt Mossberg waited in line today, but couldn’t get his iPhone. Will Jeff Hankins have better luck?
