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.
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.
