What we're reading this week...

By Sara Fischer, CNN

We’ve got a busy show planned for Sunday with our ‘Reliable Sources’ guest host, Brian Stelter, television and digital media reporter for the new York Times and author of New York Times best seller, Top of the Morning. We’ll discuss the coverage and reaction following the new developments in the purchase by Jeffrey Bezos, CEO of Amazon, of the iconic Washington Post enterprise as well as the recent controversy stirring between the Republican Party and NBC and CNN over new Hillary Clinton entertainment programming, but until then; here are some other stories that caught our eye this week.

Richard Cohen's Huma Abedin Column Is Quite Something

The Huffington Post puts the spotlight on the bizarre way in which Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen’s writes about Huma Abedin's decision to defend her husband. The Post describes Cohen’s unconventional strategy to relate his personal life to that of Huma Abedin’s as awkward and uncomfortable. The Huffington Post article also notes that this is not the first piece of Cohen’s to spark controversy, recalling a piece he wrote in July about Trayvon Martin, which was condemned by many journalists as being slightly racist.

For Twitter, Free Speech Is a High-Wire Act

The Wall Street Journal’s Shira Ovide argues that Twitter’s continued success makes it difficult for the corporation to uphold the rights of free speech. Citing examples of anti-Semitic dialogue being propagated via Twitter, Odive argues that many of the billions of tweets sent worldwide clash with free speech standards globally, creating a growing dilemma for Twitter executives.

Will Amazon and Washington Post Work Together? Who Knows?!

Jeffrey Bezos’ recent purchase of the Washington Post for $250 million dollars, begs the obvious revenue question: Will Bezos’ online retail empire, Amazon, join forces with his recent media purchase? AdWeek’s David Taintor reached out to a few analysts to learn more about the recent purchase and what it means for the digital future of the Washington Post. While some analysts argue that it is too early to say if Amazon’s digital strategy will be integrated into The Washington Post’s, others argue that in the future Bezos will likely ask the Post team to focus on and experiment with the digital side of the business.
