What we're reading this week...

We’re gearing up for a busy show this Sunday when Frank Sesno, director of the George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs, rejoins ‘Reliable Sources’ as our guest host. As U.S. congressional leaders debate military action in Syria, we’ll discuss how the developments are playing out in media outlets at home and abroad- in the meantime, here are some other stories that caught our eye this week.

‘Jeff Daniels: ‘The Newsroom’ returning for Season 3’  There’s more to come from Will McAvoy and the world of Atlantis Cable News. On Tuesday, Jeff Daniels confirmed the hit HBO series had been renewed, tweeting ‘It’s official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3.’ The series has held onto steady ratings since its premiere last year. Both Jeff Daniels and co-star Jane Fonda received Primetime Emmy nominations for their performances as a fictional cable news anchor and CEO, respectively.

CBS honors 50th anniversary of 30-minute ‘Evening News’ by going black and white’  Viewers tuning in to the Labor Day broadcast of the CBS Evening News got a special treat on Monday. In honor of the network’s 50th anniversary of its transition to the 30-minute broadcast, anchor Scott Pelley ended Monday’s newscast with a black and white tribute video featuring footage with legendary CBS anchor Walter Cronkite. Additionally, older newsreel footage incorporated into the segment helped illustrated the broadcast’s evolution.

‘The New York Post gets a new digital look and new ad units’  This week, ‘The New York Post’ got a digital makeover, complete with a simplified, cleaner overall look. Ad Age’s Alex Kantrowitz notes that the Post now incorporates more prominent photo placement on its site. The redesign was led by the paper’s managing editor, Remy Stern, as well as the same agency (Hard Candy Shell) which helped The New Republic and Newsweek with their web redesigns. The move is an approach many news organizations are undertaking in an effort to remain competitive on expanding digital platforms.

‘The Onion denies taking a serious line on Syria’  Buzzfeed’s Rosie Gray takes a look at The Onion’s recent articles on Bashar al-Assad and Syria. While the satirical news site has always garnered attention for its take on the news, the Onion has taken a demonstrably more provocative approach with its recent Syria coverage. With headlines like “Help has to be on the way now, thinks Syrian man currently being gassed,” and ‘Nation currently more sympathetic to demise of Planet Krypton than plight of Syria,’ the Onion has remained critical of U.S.  inaction in Syria. However, Will Tracy, The Onion’s editor-in-chief, says the paper isn’t straying from its satirical point of view, saying “I wouldn’t say we’ve staked out an editorial line so much as we’ve chosen to acknowledge two equally valid points of view at once.”

What stories are you reading this week? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to tune in for 'Reliable Sources' Sunday at 11am EDT.
