Four in the morning

1. For its spring issue, the Pomona College Magazine asked a few alumni to reflect on the turmoil in the newspaper industry. Essays from New York Times media reporter Richard Perez-Pena ('84) and NYT Editor Bill Keller ('70) are included, as well as a story about the changing times at the campus newspaper, The Student Life.

2. The High Court in Great Britain has rejected an anonymous blogger's request that it block the London Times from publishing his true identity. The blogger, Detective Richard Horton (aka Night Jack), had criticized government and police bureaucracy. After being exposed, he received a written warning. BBC

3. "The National Security Agency is facing renewed scrutiny over the extent of its domestic surveillance program, with critics in Congress saying its recent intercepts of the private telephone calls and e-mail messages of Americans are broader than previously acknowledged[.]" NYT

4. Huffington Post is still not turning a profit and says it's "time to invest" - but I don't think that means paying writers. NYO
