Today’s RSS Leftovers

Here’s what MJD passed on today:
– Of all the 509 elections set for open congressional seats or gubernatorial mansions, the one candidate that the media has covered more than any other is an unemployed Democrat running for U.S. Senate in South Carolina. Alvin Greene will face Sen. Jim DeMint (R) in November and currently trails by 37 points in the latest Rasmussen poll. You would think all that coverage would be good for something, but… I guess not.
– Twitter is everywhere, and it seems everyone in media has to have an account in order to keep their job. But would anyone pay for it? Well, that’s a definite no. According to a new study, 0 percent (as in nil, nada, zilch) of respondents said they would pay for the service.
The New York Observer has found a new Web managing editor. The paper hired Aaron Gell, former editor-in-chief of Hemispheres, a United Airlines magazine. Previous experience includes stints at Radar, W and Time Out New York.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle now produces stories for a local paper outside its normal coverage. The Dalton Daily Citizen will be allowed to pull stories from the Chronicle‘s website. “We don’t currently have similar deals with other dailies but I’m sure we’re open to them,” said Atlanta Business Chronicle editor David Allison to Talking Biz News. “I’d love to have all the Georgia dailies outside metro Atlanta using our content.” Another revenue stream for city papers, maybe?
