End your week on a media note

There’s a Guardian video called Little Tony Blairs of Kosovo, in which you can watch the boys named after the 'great man'. Janine Gibson there “Loved this.” Colleague Jonathan Haynes wrote, “OK, Wow. There are like nine kids in Kosovo named ‘Tonibler.’ ‘Tonibler.’ Say it out loud and you’ll get it.” Kim-Jenna Jurriaans with Inter Press Service called it, “Creepy and fascinating.”
And in the Times, read I Was a Digital Best Seller! about a book called Boom. Kevin McKenna called it, “Another example of why ambitious journalism needs deep pockets.” Chris Bohjalian from Burlington Free Press called it “An absolute must-read if you write...or, yes, read. Thanks to @TonyHorwitz.”
