And now for news about the news
ESPN anchor Stuart Scott's private battle with cancer has become a public one. From the man himself: "Hey TWEEPS...if you want more insight into my cancer fight, read this #NewYorkTimes article by @RichSandomir." With ESPN LA, John Ireland resolved, "After reading this about @StuartScott , I'm going to try to stop worrying about the stupid stuff."
Former Politico journalist Joseph Williams penned a tell-all piece for The Atlantic, revealing his life as a retail worker after he was let go: "Nasty, Brutish, and Cheap." Slate's Dave Weigel observed, "Hounding people out of jobs for dumb TV gaffes has consequences, it turns out." At The Atlantic, Olga Khazan called it "Today's 'if you read one thing' thing."
