What we're reading this week...

By Becky Perlow, CNN

Welcoming back Eric Deggans to the guest host chair, the Reliable Sources team has a great show planned for you this week. We'll be discussing the PR nightmare that MSNBC is battling with Martin Bashir and Alec Baldwin, BuzzFeed's recent hire of an international women's rights reporter, and race-themed films, to name a few. In the meantime, here are some other stories that caught our attention this week... what caught yours?

'Rob Burgundy sings for his 'dear friend" Toronto Mayor Rob Ford'

Here on 'Reliable Sources,' we're big fans of the Channel 4 News Teams, so when we heard that the original Anchorman was swinging by the 'Conan' set, we had to tune in. But to our surprise, he didn't spout sexist comments or whip out his jazz flute to serenade the audience. Instead, he broadcast his support for his "dear, dear, dear friend, Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto."  Spoiler Alert: Burgundy has a sexy voice, so prepare yourself.

'Politico's Mike Allen, native advertising pioneer'

Native advertising, a system where an advertisement is seen within the context of a story, works out well for the company paying for the prime placement. Unfortunately for the news organization, trading page space for payment has become a somewhat controversial topic in the journalism industry, generating a discussion about the ethics involved. BuzzFeed and The Atlantic have recently come under fire for their uses of native advertising, and Politico's Mike Allen is the latest to receive criticism for the questionable use of the marketing scheme. Some fans of Allen, however, applaud his ability to weave advertisements into the folds of his stories, to the point where the two are indistinguishable from one another.

'The incredible story of Marion Stokes'

In the social media generation, we can sometimes take for granted the fact that we live in the era of YouTube - the most it takes to call up a video of the Iranian hostage crisis or Hurricane Katrina is a few taps of the keyboard and the click of a mouse. For those of an older generation, though, there's something poetic about popping in a VHS tape to re-live moments of history. One Philadelphia woman took it to the extreme, taping 35 years of "network, local, and cable news, in her home, one tape at a time, recording every major (and trivial) news event until the day she died in 2012 at the age of 83 of lung disease." Can you guess how many tapes she collected over the years?

For more media news, tune in Sunday at 11am ET.
