Eat The Press



    Little too much for the Times? A line in Frank Rich's Sunday column suggested that the New York Times will no longer be attending the White House Correspondents Association Dinner. Maybe Sanjaya's lastest hair-do pushed them over the edge. We just hope somebody has warned Karl Rove that he'll have to make new seating arrangements next year. [E&P]

  • Snow-storm in springtime: After a month away, Tony Snow is set to resume his White House Press Secretary duties today. Ah, Dana Perino, we were only just getting used to your perky spin on the continuing implosion of the White House. [AP]

  • Chilly reception for Toxic Bachelors: Radar magazine is accusing a Chilean publication of stealing its March/April cover article about "Toxic Bachelors" and publishing it as its own. Says the Times: "[Cosas is] also apparently tried to sell magazines by printing pictures of single men alongside articles describing them as bad boys." [NYT]

  • Money can't buy everything: Even if you are Google, who is facing a brain drain of top talent, who have jumped ship to pursue other options. [MediaGuardian]

  • Tabloid time-machine: The week-day edition of the New York Post may still be selling at pre-war prices. But the week-end edition has gone 21st century with a 50 cent increase. [Politico, VillageVoice]

  • Have you heard? Newspaper circulation is still going down. We've heard that the internet may be to blame. [E&P]

  • Talk about bad timing: Garden & Gun magazine (two things we automatically automatically pair), debuted in April just days before the Virginia Tech bombings. [NYT]

  • Never too fit, or too rich? David Zinczenko, editor of Men's Health magazine, is apparently the new prince of publishing. However, while we don't doubt thin is its own currency, according to Zinczenko, fit is actually the new rich. [MarketWatch, FishBowlNY]

  • Things still rosie for Rosie: Despite announcing her departure from morning gabfest "The View" last week, the former talk-show host and Trump jouster is in a "win-win" situation, with an eye on late-night as well as a Donahue-esque topics show. We just hope she hasn't given up completely on the Broadway tunes. [NYP]

  • Fembots unite! Sony is repackaging Charlie's Angels, among other television gems of the 70's, in 3-5 minute downloadable packages. [NYT]

  • You can work for free, but it'll cost you: The competition for summer internships has reached new levels; bids for a month of getting coffee and answering telephones at GQ have reached $5000 on ebay. [MediaMob]
