And now for news about the news

Michael Feeney, a former New York Daily News reporter and onetime NABJ chapter president who was about to start his dream job at CNN, died this weekend at just 32. "Feeney always helped others when he could. He strived to make people around him better. @mfeeney will be missed," shares NYDN's Keldy Ortiz. "There aren't enough words. But here are more from the New York Times on #MichaelJFeeney," chimes in Rochelle Riley with the Detroit Free Press. At Al Jazeera America, staff are making the best of things by creating a new website to showcase their best work. "A wonderful project: BestOfAJAM.com, a showcase for Al Jazeera digital reporters who will soon be out of work," details CNN's Brian Stelter. And at BuzzFeedBen Smith explores how Trump owns the old media and the new media. "This, by @BuzzFeedBen, is a thinly veiled ploy to get letters from @realDonaldTrump about his objectively tiny hands," Vocativ's Markham Nolan theorizes.
