The White House is fighting back at the media. For the second time in a week, the President's press office publicly criticized a major media player. In a statement, it claimed a New York Times editorial used “vitriolic opinions” to distort President Bush's record on benefits for members of the Armed Forces and veterans. A dislike of NBC News and MSNBC is one thing Bush and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) may have in common, says the Associated Press' David Bauder.

Also in the media glare:

Wired could have been Google, says the magazine's former editor.

Newsday's former editor wonders whether new owner Cablevision understands newspapers.

Politico's John Harris says the media blew Clinton's RFK assassination comments out of proportion.

Clear Channel sues Tribune Co. to stop former employee Andrew Friedman from switching companies until the end of the year.

Time Warner and a NBC Universal-Blackstone Group partnership are considered the top Weather Channel bidders.
