TVNewser: Jon Stewart and “The Daily Show” devoted nearly 12 minutes last night to discussing the Fox News vs. White House feud and a mocking analysis of Fox News’ distinction between news and opinion programming.

MediaJobsDaily: Reporting its third quarter earnings, the Washington Post Co. posted a $7 million increase in income while revenues at the company’s newspaper decreased 20 percent to $156.3 million.

WWD: Richard Beckman, president and CEO of Conde Nast’s Fairchild Fashion Group, which publishes WWD and Footwear News, is taking over control of W as well.

Daily Intel: Days after Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger compared print media to the Titanic, Newsweek editor Jon Meacham tried a different analogy: “Forgive my possibly overly facile analogy here, but when we are looking at the digital delivery of the printed word, we are kind of where the Sony Cassette Walkman was,” he said. “There will be, I think, an interim step that will be a CD Walkman. And then it seems to me there’s going to be an iPod.”
