Field Web Access Can Help Live Event Coverage
This weekend 436 people were arrested in Copenhagen when young activists tried to occupy a house. Modkraft.dk, which has always supported activists, launched two tools to help publish eyewitness reports to a wider audience. The first is a Google map on which small figures moved around to show the positions of eyewitnesses moved. The second tool is a simple list of text messages. The site reported from six to nine hours about police movements, various demonstrations, and sub-groups of activists that tried to penetrate police barriers.
Joe Wilson: “Chronic Liar” Robert Novak Is “Going Straight To Hell” (by Greg Sargent)
[F]ormer Ambassador Joe Wilson … angrily disputed Robert Novak’s latest assertion about the outing of his CIA operative wife, adding that if the columnist isn’t going to confession, “he’s going straight to Hell.” Wilson’s angry over a story [Monday] in The Hill which quoted Novak saying that Wilson did not forcefully object when Novak spoke to him before publishing his now infamous column naming his wife, Valerie Plame… Novak claimed [that] Wilson was primarily focused on not being named in Novak’s article solely as an opponent of the Iraq war. “He’s lying,” Wilson responded a few moments ago when I reached him on his cell phone.
After a target of one of Michelle Malkin’s hate campaigns committed suicide you’d think Little Lulu would show a little restraint. But no; Malkin and others on the Right have formed a full-scale howling mob to attack the family of 12-year-old Graeme Frost. Righties have been calling the Frosts, harassing them with personal questions. Malkin personally drove by the Frosts’ home so that she could describe it to her readers, and she went to a commercial property they own and interviewed one of the tenants. Why? Because Graeme appeared in a commercial in support of the S-CHIP program.
The country started going to hell when they told women they don’t have to just buckle immediately (by Amanda Marcotte)
So, Dr. Helen [at Pajamas Media] has an interview with Glenn Sacks about how all the problems in the world can be traced to bitches who don’t act right and just do as they’re told… It’s a truly nauseating attempt to rewrite reality, starting with Dr. Helen’s mind-boggling implication that the accused in the Duke rape case were found guilty of crimes they didn’t commit and are sitting in jail.
MSNBC: Eager to paint Hillary as a harpy
In an Iowa appearance over the weekend, Hillary Clinton fielded a question on her support for the Lieberman-Kyl Amendment… The exchange has been described as testy or harsh, though it just sounds like she got annoyed and accused Rolph of being a plant. Kudos to Rolph for asking a question the traditional media hasn’t and kudos to Hillary for not relying on pre-approved audiences and questions like our current president. But … MSNBC covered the same non-issue no less than 3 times in the course of an hour, with such charming descriptions as “shrill” and “fishwife-y”.

Is The Economy “Out Of The Woods?” (by Danny Schechter)
Can We Trust The New Jobs Report That Has Led To Rosy Forecasts?
Gallup: Republicans remain more skeptical of media
Republicans “remain deeply distrustful of the national news media — in sharp contrast to Democrats, who have a great deal more trust in the media’s accuracy”… “Only about a third of Americans today say that the news media are ‘just about right’ when it comes to ideological balance,” [Frank Newport] writes. “More than twice as many Americans say the news media are too liberal (45%) rather than too conservative (18%).”
Showing once again the success of the right wing’s 35-year assault on the media. Too bad progressives don’t see the need to confront that propaganda in a comprehensive fashion.

Magazines Going Mobile: ‘A Real Business’?
There are 233 million people in America who have mobile phones, or 76 percent of the population… Consumer spending on mobile “infotainment,” [a] report says, is expected to double between 2007 and 2011 to $64 billion. And Nokia predicts the number of mobile phone users will top three billion worldwide by 2009. With all of these juicy numbers, it’s no wonder many publishers are hell-bent on capturing part of the mobile space, and, of course, figuring out how to monetize it.
Rush makes $2 to $3 million a month. (via email, Inside Radio daily newsletter, no link available)
That’s according to monthly filings Rush Limbaugh has been required to fill-out for the Florida Department of Corrections. Now in his final weeks of probation, agents say Limbaugh hasn’t broken any rules in the 18 months since he’s been under watch under a plea deal on drug charges. Limbaugh tells the Palm Beach Post “This whole thing has made me a better person.”
From Steve Sinton, one of the creators of Air America Radio: “Down from the $4M+/mo in the $50/5 yr deal Clear Channel signed him to before pleading out to the drug charges that have decimated his audience. Actually, the calendar decimates his audience. His number 1 demo is ‘Dead.’ Huge 70+. Try selling that someone other than Gold Bond. If you believe the American Legion, 5000 of his listeners die every week.”
Internet radio: Potential is great, listeners are few.
Spring 2007 data shows less than 1% of diaries contain listening to Internet radio. But when listeners do tune-in online, they seem to favor local stations.
Comcast must listen (by Jeff Jarvis)
Here’s my ideal cable company: * I want my cable company to treat me with the respect it would give a business and issue me an SLA (service-level agreement) that guarantees me uptime, speed, and response time to problems on the internet, TV, and phones — with penalties if they fail… * I want my cable company to guarantee that they will not restrict any content on the pipe I pay for…. * I want my cable company to offer wi-fi all over my town and to come to roaming agreements that let me get wi-fi anywhere I travel. I’m willing to pay more for that. But I want it.

NBC SLEPT ON VIDEO’S DIGITAL RIGHTS
October 7, 2007 — THE latest skit-turned-video-cult-classic from “Saturday Night Live” is Andy Samberg’ s “I Ran So Far,” and it’s burning up the Internet, bringing well-earned attention to the comedic talent – but it is also leaving NBC’s legal eagles a bit red-faced. It seems NBC never secured the digital rights to the background music used during the video and therefore couldn’t up load the piece onto its YouTube channel or post it on its own Website.
