MediaWatch 29 October 08

Keeping up with Barack Obama -

Bishop blasts Joe Biden: "The teaching of the Church is clear and not open to debate."

Remember Hillary? Mrs. Clinton's failed presidential bid may have kept her away from New York for weeks on end, but that hasn't hurt her standing here at home - far from it in fact, according to a new Marist Poll.

Remember "Night of the Living Dead?" 2008 marks the picture's 40th anniversary.

I gotta admit - I'm hooked - on Gossip Girl - the CW show appears Monday nights on every TV set in my house - CW is doing SOMETHING right - the CBS/WB-backed network is racking up ratings.

Radio talk show host Glenn Beck will be in the Syracuse suburb of DeWitt on November 15th, as part of his “Helicopter Tour” to visit 50 cities in six weeks. He’ll be signing copies of his newest book, The Christmas Sweater. [More...]

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.
