  • Media Life reports, “While young people, the 13-to-24 set, do in fact spend more time than older people on the internet and with even newer media such as text messaging, it’s not at the expense of traditional media.

  • One reader weighs in on the Post-condom debate: “I think the Post Points look more like little blue diaphragms (which gives an indication of how old I am!!)”

  • Readers are up in arms over yesterday’s cartoon in Roll Call. Some of the comments we received:

    • “I found today’s editorial cartoon in Roll Call to be insensitive, appalling, and downright disrespectful to those grieving over Monday’s horrific events. Perhaps because I am a May ’06 graduate of VT, or perhaps just because I’m an emphatic human being (as I know that most people are in the wake of this tragedy), I think the decision to run this cartoon was utterly tasteless. Shame on you, Roll Call.”

    • “I guess the cartoonist at Roll Call didn’t know anyone at VT. Glad to see they are able to make light of a harrowing, tragic situation.”

    • “In an already overly-desensitized world, Roll Call’s cartoon today pushed things over the top. Have some tact.”

    • “The RJ Matson cartoon in Roll Call today is disgraceful. RJ should be ashamed and what the hell was Roll Call thinking putting that in their paper? Truly just pathetic!”

  • USA Today reports, “AOL boss predicts it will be No. 1 site on the Internet again.”

Nonetheless, there are substantial racial differences in views of Imus’s punishment, and an even bigger gap in opinions about news media’s coverage of the story.”
