  • Nobody watched "I'm From Rolling Stone." [WWD]
  • Google in a deal with CBS; don't get too excited, it's just radio for now. [MDN]
  • Fox News: Ted Kennedy is a "hostile enemy" of the United States. [ThinkProgress]
  • Some lady from the BBC named Managing Editor at HuffPo. No word on whether or not she's got a qualified rack. [Romenesko]
  • Doug Brod named editor at Spin. [WWD]
  • Judy Miller: fans in high places. [NYS]
  • Blind Item: What scribe from a media-centric weekly publication was gatecrashed while covering a gossip columnist's birthday fiesta?
