The media news cycle is bananas

What's up with the last couple of days?

We seem to be in the thick of a media news maelstrom right now:

—Jeff Zucker was officially named the new head of CNN.

—The Leveson Report on media ethics in the UK was published, and reporters have been frantically digesting its 2,000 pages.

—Syria has cut Internet access as violence continues to engulf the country.

The New York Times arranged for Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren to have social media monitoring so she stops offending people.

Update, 1:40 p.m.

National Journal’s editor is stepping down and 10 positions are being eliminated in a reorganization.
