Steve Reese (U Texas-Austin) and i are finally writing the third edition of Mediating the Message. we began this project when we were both assistant professors at UT in the late 1980s. the first edition came out in 1991 published by Longman, and we wrote the second edition in 1996, also with Longman.

The New York Times will charge for “frequent visitors” sometime in the next year. As the most popular online news site in the US, the Times tends to set the industry standard. I am a dedicated user, and especially like the new “times skimmer” look.
