What we're reading this week

By Laura Koran, CNN

Topics we’ll be covering this Sunday include a survey on the state of the media and a new biography of media mogul Roger Ailes. In the mean time, here are some other stories Reliable Sources found interesting.

Predicting the future – How will the world look 25 years from now? How will we travel? Work? Consume information? Spend our free time? These are some of the questions that the Los Angeles Times Magazine tried to answer in a special 1988 issue and, believe it or not, some of the forecasts were dead on. The magazine correctly predicted modern e-mail and the use of Botox. Some of their predictions, like robot maids, seem to have missed the mark, but if Harlem Shake videos can take the world by storm, can “futura-rock” really be far behind?

Child labor? – He may look young, but David Muir has been in the news business for over a quarter century. That’s because the ABC World News weekend anchor started his first internship at the tender age of 13. Muir spoke with TV Guide about those early years working at a local television station in his hometown of Syracuse, where his co-workers charted his growth on the wall and made fun of his changing voice.

Twitter turns 7 – It may be hard for some to believe given how ubiquitous Twitter has become in such a short period of time, but the social networking site celebrated its 7th birthday today. Over the past seven years, the social media site has allowed people to send their 140-character-or-less thoughts (the good, the bad and the totally inane) out to the universe. To celebrate the big day, CNN has compiled a list of unforgettable tweets from the site’s better known micro-bloggers.
