  • More things that make you go hmmm…”Talk about a corporate conundrum: How do you celebrate the first decade of MSNBC.com without drawing attention to the same milestone at MSNBC?”

  • Kathleen Matthews sits down for an interview.

  • Breaking News from ABCNEWS.com:

      THE U.S. MILITARY HAS ANNOUNCED THE ARREST OF FOUR MEN IN THE KIDNAPPING OF U.S. JOURNALIST JILL CARROLL, THE A.P. REPORTS

  • From TVNewser:

      -ABC News chief White House correspondent Martha Raddatz is in Iraq this week — her tenth trip since the start of the war. ABC says she has been granted exclusive access to the US military’s operations in and around Baghdad…

      -“FNC Reports 25 Percent Fiscal Year Growth

      -“> On Monday, I asked if Molly Levinson was about to become political director at CBS News. A tipster says the CNNer is in very advanced discussions’ with the Eye. Update: 7:12pm: ‘You’re way behind,’ a DCer says. ‘Her last day is this Friday. She’s going to CBS to be the political director.'”

  • The Extreme-ness looks at the Style section’s front page story on a Little Green Footballs blogger and says:

      And in delicious, admirable, bloggy irony, the front-page Style section plug just makes LGF angrier

  • One more thing from yesterday’s TVNewser:

      > Tonight’s NBC Nightly News features a piece by the Washington Post’s Dana Priest. It will “debut on our air before going on the Web and in tomorrow’s edition of the paper…”

    We have to ask again: What is in the Post that you can’t get anywhere else beforehand?

  • Slate’s “Today’s Papers” looks at today’s W. Post and asks:

      The WP has led the way–and been just about alone–in detailing the administration’s push to water down the War Crimes Act. But one beef: The paper says it has a copy of the administration’s proposed legislation. If that’s the case, why not post it?
