Ira Glass’s "This American Life" is leaving PRI, NYT's Cara Buckley reports (2,149 shares). Colleague David Joachim elaborated, "Ira Glass (@iraglass) on the uncertainty of leaving PRI: 'We could really, really be wrong,'" then added, "Ira Glass lowered his own salary from $278K to $146K and still thinks it's too much." Marketplace's David Gura also further explained reasons for the move: "Public Radio International was charging @ThisAmerLife a seven-figure sum to distribute the show."

"Oh, look: a dishonest referee just scrubbed 6 news articles under new EU law. Glad I can still see them in the US," Jeff Roberts groused at GigaOM.
