The New York Times
With its announcement that one million digital-only subscribers now pay for its journalism, The Times hit a major milestone, and one worth celebrating. Just a few years back, as various pay wall efforts were tried and put on the shelf, that eye-popping number was close to unimaginable. Will these digital subscriptions save The Times?

Digiday
Attracting mobile readers these days is easy, but good luck holding onto them.

The Wall Street Journal
Last week was one to forget for the TV industry, which got hammered by mounting fears of cord-cutting and the realization that TV is losing some of its grip on marketers.
