NAA keeps the heat up on federal shield legislation
In the wake of revelations that the Justice Department seized phone records of Associated Press reporters as well as phone and e-mail records of a Fox News reporter, Attorney General Eric Holder has held several meetings with media executives as part of the department's review of internal guidelines for requesting subpoenas for reporters' confidential source information. President Barack Obama called on Holder to review and propose an update for these guidelines by July 12. NAA President and CEO Caroline Little attended a meeting with Holder on June 7.

During that meeting, the attorney general reiterated — as previously detailed in this and other media accounts — the desire to update the guidelines, which have not been modified in more than 30 years. NAA has been lobbying members of Congress in support of a federal shield law (H.R. 1962/S. 987), arguing that clear rules, administered by an independent federal judge, are the only way to prevent government overreach into newsgathering practices. View Little's response to a recent Washington Post column on this issue.

When retailers try to 'retrain the customer'
TIME
Retailers love the idea that consumers can be trained to view certain price points and markdowns as terrific deals. Just tweak the prices and wait for shoppers to bite. And when consumers get to the point that they can see through the manipulative promotions? Then it's time to retrain them.

Another down year for movie advertising
MediaLife Magazine
After a down year in 2012, when movie ad spending declined more than 10 percent, it appears that the decreases will continue in 2013. The dip can be attributed to several reasons, including the lackluster summer lineup, which is expected to produce fewer hits than last year, and movie studios' increasing desire to push their films via cheaper digital avenues.
