I am so rooting for you tomorrow not just as a personal friend but because professionally we’re definitely in this together. Speech of your life? Yes, he Cam!
Former News International exec Rebekah Brooks • In a text message to current British Prime Minister David Cameron, on the brink of a speech Cameron was about to make at a Conservative Party conference. News International had to hand over the text messages between the two as part of the Leveson Inquiry that grew out of the company’s phone-hacking scandal. It’s been a fun one so far, with such luminaries as Tony Blair (who also had a tight relationship with Brooks) and Rupert Murdoch being forced to testify. Today was Cameron’s turn.

Sean Hannity • Freaking out over the just-uncovered revelation that Media Matters allegedly has an enemies list, and he’s on it. The Daily Caller’s massive multi-part expose on the liberal organization seems to have uncovered a ton of dirt, including an internal memo that included this line: “We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.” It appears that The Daily Caller did their homework with this one. One major quibble however: Tucker Carlson, a current Fox News contributor, runs The Daily Caller, and wrote some of the stories. That is a huge conflict of interest. Should Tucker have taken himself off this story? (ht imwithkanye)

Editorial priorities are weighed on a number of factors at any given moment. All news organizations have faced these pressures, but despite this and the challenging terrain in Bahrain, we have covered events in the country extensively.
