Amy Sullivan / The New Republic:
Who Reported It First?  Who Cares.  —  Can we talk about the nonsense of caring about which news outlet first reports a big piece of news?  I'm not talking about a genuine scoop—a report that wouldn't have otherwise come to light—but about news that we're all eventually going to find out anyway.
Craig Silverman / Poynter:
Three lessons for newsrooms from the Supreme Court health care reporting errors  —  Communication and teamwork.  —  That's what I'd point to as two things that helped news organizations such as AP, Bloomberg and SCOTUSblog get the health care decision right.

Adam Tinworth / One Man & His Blog:
Why traditional publishers can't soothe the crying baby  —  I feel rather bad for my colleagues in the national newspaper business this morning.  As they trek into their plush central London office, sipping their lattes1, they find the world predicting their doom and destruction.
John Robinson / Media, disrupted:
In New Orleans, profit trumps readers  —  I appreciate the efforts of readers of the Times-Picayune to keep the New Orleans newspaper published seven days a week.  Unfortunately, they will be unsuccessful.  —  Here is a simple, boiled down reason: Readers value the public service the newspaper produces.
Julie Moos / Poynter:
Anniston Star to eliminate Monday edition  —  Another Alabama newspaper has decided to reduce its print days.  This time, it is a smaller daily that has been praised for its commitment to community journalism.  Starting in the fourth quarter of this year, probably in October …

Jim Romenesko:
Salt Lake Tribune managing editor Michael Anastasi named LANG executive editor  —  Michael Anastasi leaves the Salt Lake Tribune, where he's been managing editor since 2004, to become executive editor of the Los Angeles Newspaper Group, which has nine daily newspapers and associated digital products, websites and weekly papers.
Peter C. Beller / Ebyline Blog:
Building the Great Newspaper Paywall  —  The beleaguered newspaper industry has finally settled on a digital revenue strategy—the metered paywall—and now everyone's pitching in to get it built.  Paywalls have their critics, their boosters, more critics and then the critics-who-also-want-to-be- boosters.

David Carr / Media Decoder:
Two Guys Made a Web Site, and This Is What They Got  —  What if this article began with a link to a chart on media consolidation?  Would you click it?  —  What if, instead, this article began with a promise that it would tell you “The Real Reason They Still Play ‘Mrs. Robinson’ on the Radio.”
Discussion: Betabeat
Christine Haughney / Media Decoder:
New York Magazine to Expand The Cut Blog  —  It used to be that New York magazine's cheeky blog items expounding on fashion and politicians were accessories to the main attraction — the articles in the flagship magazine.  But next month, New York is shifting more attention online.
Maura Dolan / Los Angeles Times:
Disgraced journalist Stephen Glass fights to become lawyer  —  LOS ANGELES — Paul Zuckerman was sifting through résumés when he paused, “astounded,” over a particularly strong applicant for a law-clerk opening: Ivy League undergraduate, top-notch law school, legal work for two judges in Washington.
Nicholas Carr / Rough Type:
The nepotistic linker  —  Mathew Ingram, GigaOM's media blogger, gave one of his semiyearly lectures on the sanctity of the hyperlink yesterday.  Linking is “a core value of the web.”  Links are “the currency of the collaborative web.”  Links are “one of the crucial underpinnings of the internet and the web.”
Steve Smith / MediaPost:
Bloomberg Businessweek: Yep, You Can Put A Magazine On A Phone  —  Most magazine publishers have been so obsessed with the tablet in the last two years that their smartphone app programs seemed to have been pushed to the margins.  The lure of print-like engagement on the iPad was as powerful as chum thrown to starved sharks.
