Three unrelated media notes:
- Reader J sends in this piece where a member of the Star-Ledger editorial board defends their decision to endorse Christie and envisions a world where they’d endorse him in a Republican primary. My take is that newspaper editorial boards are unnecessary overhead and endorsements are an anachronism. But perhaps you have a more nuanced view.
- Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill, Laura Poitras and nine other journalists have launched the first FirstLook publication, called The Intercept. Scahill and Greenwald’s first piece details how the drones are targeted at cell phones, not people.
- Just a reminder: Tim Armstrong’s AOL owns the Huffington Post and Patch. Both are worth avoiding.
What else is up in the media world?
