Monday media madness
Some good news, at last, on the subject of imprisoned journalists: Egypt freed and deported Al Jazeera reporter Peter Greste (11,000+ shares). Regrettably, celebrations are soured by the fact that two other AJ colleagues remain in an Egyptian prison (6,700+). "We will not rest until Baher and Mohamed also regain their freedom," the AJE News account tweets. Also in media, NYT's David Carr follows moguls Mike Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch at play in politics and news while elsewhere at the Times Vindu Goel stumbles upon value in Twitter's instant timeline. "Twitter has a new ‘instant timeline’ feature. NYT reporter loves it," needles Jay Yarow with Business Insider.
