Scribbles From a Busy Week Feb 9, 2011

I’ve been busy this week, but not asleep.  And it seems that whenever I get swamped like this, industry news takes off.  Here are just a few of the things I wish I’d had more time to think and/or post about from the last few days:

Newsweek breaks up with MSNBC // The magazine has decided not to renew its traffic-sharing agreement with MSNBC.com.  Here’s the quote from AdWeek given by MSNBC.com chief Charlie Tillinghast:

We’re not continuing it. They just decided not to do it. There wasn’t a lot of discussion about it. I got the impression they were busy trying to organize themselves.

This is happening around the same time that…

AOL decides to buy HuffPo // Cornell did actually talk me into giving a few thoughts on this, but perhaps more importantly, you should also look at what Jeff Jarvis and Om Malik had to say on the subject.

CBS News shakes up its staff // MediaBistro has a nice interview with the news division’s new chairman, former 60 Minutes EP Jeff Fager.

Keith Olbermann’s got a new gig // Bill Carter and Brian Stelter ran one of the first stories on his deal with Current TV over at Media Decoder.

Netflix is redesigning its API // NewTeeVee has some analysis on this.
