What we're reading this week...

By CNN's Elizabeth Cherneff

We've got  a great show planned this Sunday when David Folkenflik of NPR News returns to the ‘Reliable Sources’ guest chair. We’ll discuss xxx, but in the meantime, here are some other stories that caught our eye this week:

'Pew: Young people 'graze' for news, old people stick to tv and print'  In its recent report on trends that are shaping digital news, a Pew Research Study found that nearly 3 in 4 Americans ages 18-29 now cite the Internet as their main source of news (over both tv and radio). Among adults older than age 64, television and newspapers remained at the  top of the list of preferred news sources. While the findings illustrate perceptible shifts in news consumption by demographic, the study did reveal that older and younger viewers follow weather news more closely than other categories.

'New name for iconic International Herald Tribune'  As part of the New York Times Company's renaming strategy, the renowned 'International Herald Tribune' newspaper officially became the 'International New York Times' this week. USA Today's Rem Rieder notes that the IHT commemorated its final edition with a 24-page supplement with prominent articles and photos featured throughout the years. The latest rebranding also represents the NYT Company's broader approach to expand its global readership.

Read this: here's a new rare interview with Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson   Mental Floss Magazine readers got a rare treat when editor Jake Rossen nabbed a recent exclusive interview with Calvin and Hobbes comic creator Bill Watterson. The legendary cartoonist discussed the pressure to create spinoffs & sequels from his content, as well as his decision not to partake in licensing deals for his beloved comic strip characters . When asked about the enduring nature of Calvin and Hobbes, Watterson said, "You can’t really blame people for preferring more of what they already know and like. The trade-off, of course, is that predictability is boring. Repetition is the death of magic."

    You can certainly see your enthusiasm in the work you write. The sector hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. All the time go after your heart. "In order to preserve your self-respect, it is sometimes necessary to lie and cheat." by Robert Byrne.
