Must-reads of the week

Brown exits the Beast; Putin enters the Times

Culled from CJR’s frequently updated “Must-reads from around the Web,” our staff recommendations for the best pieces of journalism (and other miscellany) on the Internet, here are your can’t-miss must-reads of the past week:

A plea for caution from Russia — What Putin has to say to Americans about Syria

Harvard Business School case study: gender equity — Year after year, women who had arrived with the same test scores and grades as men fell behind

The child exchange — Inside America’s underground market for adopted children

IAC and Daily Beast editor Tina Brown to part ways — IAC does not plan to renew Tina Brown’s contract when it expires in January. A decision has not yet been made on the future of The Daily Beast

That last exclusive scoop was totally wrong — Is being first and wrong sometimes better for business than being last and right?

A note to Capital readers — Allbriton buys Capital New York
