What we're reading this week...

By Billy Holbert , CNN

Coming up Sunday on 'Reliable Sources,' we'll discuss media angles on the major stories of the week, including coverage of the ouster of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy. In the meantime, here are some other stories that grabbed our attention this week:

"Don't fall for the gimmick- local news station sheds 'breaking news' hype"  – A local TV station in Louisville, Kentucky has discarded the often used hype-machine known as 'breaking news.'  WDRB tells their viewers they won't use the term breaking news unless the news is breaking at that moment.  The station believes their decision to not use the attention-grabbing slogan differentiates themselves from their competitors who may use breaking news to gain viewers.

New York Times columnist calls Glenn Greenwald an activist, journalist– "Mr. Greenwald is an activist who is deeply suspicious of government and the national security apparatus, and he is a zealous defender of privacy and civil rights.  He is also a journalist," writes New York Times media columnist David Carr. In a recent post, Carr suggests that journalism can still be valid despite a reporter's slant.  However, Carr further explains the same passion that may drive the journalist, may ultimately contribute to the downfall of the reporting. “But I do think that activism — which is admittedly accompanied by the kind of determination that can prompt discovery — can also impair vision. If an agenda is in play and momentum is at work, cracks may go unexplored.

Colonial-era paper uses front page to describe Revolutionary War battle –In 1781, Philadelphia’s Freeman’s Journal used the front page of its newspaper to report major news in the Revolutionary War.  This was a rare occurrence for the time, as most publications reserved the inside pages for important news. With large and decorative font, the paper described the defeat of British Gen. Charles Cornwallis in a location where modern papers now list the biggest stories of today.

    There are certainly loads of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a nice point to bring up. I provide the ideas above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you convey up the place crucial factor shall be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around things like that, however I'm sure that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game.

    Breaking news can be very misleading. I'm glad to see there is a station actually doing something about it. It's not all about ratings.
