WELCOME TO DAYBOOK, our daily collection of media and politics hits/misses plus fun videos and (at the bottom) a music pick. Return for updates during the day. Keep up with fresh items via @gregmitch at Twitter. E-mail me at: email@example.com. Check out my new book on the wildest left-wing election campaign and the birth of "media politics" here.
Here’s a recap of the Gawker Media hacking yesterday, after wild fears spread like fire.
Top NYT story: Christians targeted by our friends in Iraq, many flee. So do GOP Christians like Palin still call it "victory"?… Global Post: New poll finds shockingly bad poll numbers in Afghanistan for support of US. And more than half want our forces out of their country, the sooner the better… The Guardian: Time for negotiation in Afghanistan… See photos by the great Tyler Hicks on Afghan tragedy on Sunday, with six US troops killed by bomb—and possible Pulitzer winner.
David Carr’s NYT column tomorrow: Has WikiLeaks changed journalism? Or more like journalism changing WikiLeaks?… And now: WikiLeaks—The Game. Here’s two you can play online. NOTE: I am live-blogging WikiLeaks news and views all day again, for 16th day, so Daybook a little light today.
