In an interview yesterday, President Obama told Bill O'Reilly that it is not the place of the U.S. to broker a deal that would force Mubarak out of power. The Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers to win their first championship in 14 years in a thrilling Super Bowl filled with spectacle on and off the gridiron. And some big waves in the media world will be made today when AOL announces its purchase of the Huffington Post for $315 million, signaling a serious wager on the future of online news and a reminder to everyone in this business that, when it comes down to it, content is still king.
