What we're reading this week...

Join us this Sunday at 11am EDT when John Avlon, executive editor of The Daily Beast, returns as our 'Reliable Sources' guest host! We'll look at how the press covered the technological malfunctions accompanying the Obamacare website rollout recently, but in the meantime, here are some other stories that caught our eye this week:

"Netflix hits milestone and raises its sights"  With Emmy nominations for several of its original series, Netflix has proven itself a contender alongside conventional tv outlets like AMC, HBO &  Showtime. This past Monday, Netflix reached another milestone, surpassing 40 million subscribers worldwide. Though the company's stock has also surged recently, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings struck a cautiously optimistic tone saying, "“We have done well, but we have a long way to go to match HBO’s 114 million global member count or their well-deserved Emmy Award leadership.”

"The role of news on Facebook"  Nearly one in three U.S. adults now get their news from Facebook- that's coming from a new Pew Research Center study released this week. Researchers noted, however, that news consumption via Facebook was "common, but incidental," as the survey revealed that the above statistic applied to adults who were on Facebook for other reasons to begin with. While results found that younger viewers were more engaged with news via Facebook as a whole, several respondents across demographics noted that Facebook expanded the range of stories they might not actively seek out individually.

"Chinese newspaper boldly demands release of detained reporter on its front page"  The state-run New Express Chinese tabloid printed a front-page appeal on Wednesday asking officials to release reporter Chen Yongzhou. According to the Huffington Post, Yongzhou was detained by police after writing several articles which criticized a state-owned construction company. In an online blog post, Chinese officials stated, "New Express journalist Chen is suspected of the crime of damaging business reputation, and so on October 19 was detained by police according to the law."

    certainly like your website however you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I'll certainly come back again.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I'll definitely be back.
