Media news derivatives: June 5

In case you missed it — Elizabeth Ailes, wife of Fox News chief Roger Ailes, doesn’t let just anyone subscribe to her Putnam County News and Recorder.

Also: What’s John Solomon doing back at the Washington Times? Consulting. And his return doesn’t appear to presage a re-accession to the editorship of the paper.

Elsewhere:

*Do you know the difference between information and content? You better!

*Will GOOD magazine please discuss its editorial firings of last week. Poynter’s Andrew Beaujon and the Atlantic have both failed to get the mag to talk. Maybe some door-knocking is in order.

Oh wait — Early this morning, Beaujon finally got some feedback from GOOD management in the person of GOOD co-founder Casey Caplowe:

I know a fair deal has been made of doing this the day after the magazine launch party — the truth is we wanted to do our best to respect the awesome work this team had done to bring that latest issue into being — and quite frankly, there’s never a good time to do these things.
Tough decisions are made for a reason though, and I have never been more confident about our future — the people who work here, the community we’ve built, and new tools and offerings we have in the pipeline. Unfortunately, I’m not prepared to get into real specifics on this just yet.

*New Yorker’s David Remnick tells WWD that the only major change coming to the magazine is how it’s consumed.

*The New York Times makes some hires on the social-media front.

*Jon Stewart satirizes CNN’s coverage of Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee. Lots of drama over the fly-by.
