MediaWatch 03 March 08

Foxy KYW anchorwoman Alycia Lane - who once e-mailed sexy swimsuit snaps to a married TV talking head - has drawn the ire of an organization for gay police officers...

Did BLOGGERS play a role in the death of an advertising executive?

Last year group radio station owner Citadel acquired ABC's radio stations, including NYC's WABC-AM 770 and WPLJ 95.5. $ales on the stations are below expectations, and there will be severe cutbacks at Citadel radio stations, according to Radio-Info.

I got an email today from "Tom" the man behind MySpace. Maybe it has something to do with this:
Leading Internet scholars at Harvard University will convene a yearlong task force to explore how children can avoid unwanted contact and content when using MySpace and other popular online hangouts. The Internet Safety Technical Task Force is the result of an agreement that MySpace reached with all state attorneys general except Texas' in January. It will be made up of leading Internet service companies and nonprofit groups, including those focused on children's safety. Associated Press

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
