Hollywood trade paper Variety is putting a seal on its website. Starting early next year, most or all of the content on will be available only to those who subscribe to the print version or pay for a digital subscription. Publisher Brian Gott said executives were still considering whether small amounts of content would remain free. Discussions are also continuing about whether online pricing will be lower than or equivalent to that for the print edition. Over the last few years, online advertising revenue has failed to grow as many media executives had expected, leading newspapers to consider charging for some or all of their digital content in an effort to boost revenue.

Hollywood Reporter, Nov. 25, Page 17, Col. 1: "Letty Aronson, former vp of the Museum of Television and Radio in New York, has been named vp at New York-based Jean Doumanian Prods" . . . and eight more paragraphs that detail both Aronson's credentials and Doumanian's credits. Very straight, hot-off-the-press-release kinda stuff--unless you knew how to read between the lines.
