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, author and editor Joanne Lipman. Lipman is a former editor at the Wall Street Journal and Conde Nast and is co-editor of the forthcoming, “Strings Attached.” We’ll discuss the dangers of reporting on the recent outbreaks of violence in Egypt, the coverage of President’s vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, and the new trend of crowdsourcing social media online, but until then; here are some other stories that caught our eye this week.

Facebook use 'makes people feel worse about themselves'

BBC News cites a study by the University of Michigan which concludes that checking Facebook makes people feel worse about their sense of well-being and satisfaction with life. The study examines the causal relationship between Facebook usage and loneliness, concluding that the more participants used Facebook, the less satisfied they were with their lives. This condition, referred to as fear of missing out, or FOMO, occurs when Facebook users look at pictures of friends having a good time at events in which they are not included or present.

New York Times Website Back Online After ‘Internal Issue’

New York Times readers were in for a surprise when they learned that the newspaper’s website and email went down late Wednesday morning into late Thursday morning. Visitors were greeted by an error message upon visiting the site during the crash. The New York Times issued an apology message upon the restoration saying, “To our customers: As you know, our web site was unavailable for a period of time earlier today. The outage occurred within seconds of a scheduled maintenance update, which we believe was the cause. We are working on fully restoring service and apologize for any inconvenience.”

Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin eyed as 2016 GOP debate moderators

The Washington Examiner’s “Washington Secrets” blog reports that GOP insiders are considering a panel of conservative radio hosts, including Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, as debate moderators in 2016. The GOP sources tell the Examiner that pressure from viewers combined with the potential for increased viewership are two factors in the consideration of the conservative personalities as moderators. The announcement comes a week after Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, dismissed Mika Brzezinski of NBC’s Morning Joe as a potential Republican debate moderator due to her affiliation with NBC, whose entertainment sector plans to produce a miniseries on Hillary Clinton.
