It’s a busy Monday for news about the news business. Here goes:
–Happily, the four talented, experienced journalists from the NYTimes captured by the Libyan government have been released.
—From London comes word of limited progress in addressing some of the worst features of British libel law (presumption of guilt, unlimited jurisdiction, etc.)
—David Carr peers inside Google and sees a “media company.”
—Foreign news matters again inside big news organizations that have been hollowing out their “foreign desks” and closing overseas bureaus.
–I’m not even sure what this story about Thrillist is all about, but it’s the most emailed business story, so here goes.
(Thrillist looks like a retailing site to me, not a media site. But what do I know?)
