Yuge Changes to Cross-Ownership?

Current FCC rules prohibit media companies from owning newspapers and TV stations in the same market (Think; the former pairing of the Hartford Courant and Fox61). Roger Yu of USA Today considers whether a Trump FCC could change that.

It is hard to ignore someone named Chion Wolf.

Though she has a modest title at WNPR; her name, her on-air delivery, and the personality behind it make her an outsize presence. And according to a weekend profile in the Hartford Courant, it all started at a small town cell phone store in Plainville, Connecticut.

Clinton with Savoy bookseller Jessica Wick.

ICYMI – Hillary Clinton and her family – including the former president – were in Westerly, Rhode Island and southeastern Connecticut this past weekend as they continue to get on with their lives post election.

They stopped at the Savoy bookstore in Westerly and later – according to the Westerly Sun – they had a private, after-hours tour of the Mystic Aquarium.

Why Westerly? We don’t know.

The Sun also reports that actor Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant on ABC’s Scandal, walked by the Savoy shortly after the Clintons left.

Trump and the Press

Tuesday morning President-elect Donald Trump canceled a scheduled meeting with the New York Times, because he said the terms of the meeting had changed.

Editor’s Note: As of 10:45a.m. Tuesday the Times meeting is back on. We will not be providing continuous updates on this matter because we have other things to do!

The cancellation happened less than 24 hours after Trump met with a group of network anchors, personalities and executives in what was supposed to be an off the record session about the incoming administration.

Instead, several reports suggest the meeting turned into a press bashing session by Trump. The only one disputing the account of the meeting appears to be Trump’s third and final campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.
