In his Sunday column, David Carr writes Stealthily, Comcast Fortifies Its Arsenal in the New York Times. Steven Levy at Wired said, “If Comcast wins, cord-cutting is ‘leaving a house on fire & having it chase you down the street.’” Lee Schafer from the Minneapolis StarTribune pointed out, “In discussing Big Cable deal, it's not really TV worth thinking about, it's broadband connectivity.”

Also in the New York Times, there’s news the Polk Awards Honor Articles on N.S.A. Surveillance. Damien Cave there said, “Polk awards are out; congrats to @JimBYardley @andreafelliott and other NYT winner.” Dion Nissenbaum from the Wall Street Journal added, “Congrats to @mattaikins for Polk Award on suspected US war crimes in Afghanistan.”

And if you’d like the news directly, LIU put out their own release for the 2013 George Polk Awards in Journalism.

The Daily Caller’s Betsy Rothstein takes us into the aftermath of McKay Coppins’s Trump profile in BuzzFeed. Weirdly enough, a Trump aide resigned over the article and Brian Stelter at CNN explained, “What happens when you contact a source to confirm a scoop... and the source BCC's other reporters when he replies.”

However, the New York Post has a different take on the story: Trump fires top advisor & political consultant Sam Nunberg. John Dickerson at CBS News explained, “If you are trying to put out a fire @realDonaldTrump may suggest extinguishing it with gallons of fresh gasoline.” Matthew Zeitlin from BuzzFeed added,” The Post refers to Trump's ‘alleged obsession with publicity.’”
