The time is now. Those words have been reverberating in the wake of Friday's shootings in Newtown, Conn. There's at last a sense that the moment has come for some serious action on gun control. Even some of the most reliable 2nd Amendment hawks are easing up. "The ideologies of my past career are no longer relevant," Joe Scarborough - father of young children, host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and former conservative congressman - told his audience in a 10-minute speech, because Newtown "changed everything.

In Britain to promote her film "The Butler," Oprah Winfrey gave an interview to the BBC last week. Not surprisingly, she promoted her movie about race relations in the White House with comments about race relations and the White House. The BBC's Will Gompertz asked: "Has it ever crossed your mind that some of the treatment of Obama and the challenges he's faced and some of the reporting he's received is because he's an African American?" Now there's a fresh take. Either Gompertz has been handcuffed to a radiator in someone's windowless basement for the last five years or, more likely, he was riffing off the suggested questions Winfrey's PR team handed out to interviewers.

MSNBC's chief executive says its new sponsorship deal with Starbucks doesn't mean the network will filter out bad news about the gourmet coffee chain. Like sports teams that sell naming rights for their stadiums, MSNBC's "Morning Joe" news talk show with Joe Scarborough will become "Morning Joe Brewed by Starbucks." It airs each weekday morning, and the Starbucks insignia will appear repeatedly on the show's logo at about the time many viewers are thinking about that first cup. Such news show sponsorships weren't unusual in the early days of television but faded as news divisions sought to avoid anything that looked like it might compromise their independence.

SO MSNBC is mired in third place among all-news cable networks ["A New Look for Its News at MSNBC," by Scott Collins, June 12]. Gee, it couldn't possibly have anything to do with the fact that four of their five evening programs are hosted by conservatives (Tucker Carlson, Joe Scarborough, Chris Matthews, Rita Cosby). Competing with Fox News for right-wing viewers is a fool's errand. Since many people believe the media are liberal anyway, why doesn't MSNBC simply go ahead and try a mostly liberal lineup?

CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves shot back at former CBS news anchor Dan Rather on Tuesday, saying his characterization of the network "tarting" up its newscast with anchor Katie Couric was "sexist." Rather, speaking by phone on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program with Joe Scarborough Monday, said CBS had made the mistake of taking the evening news broadcast and "dumbing it down, tarting it up," and playing up topics such as celebrities over war coverage.
