Weekly Observations - week ending March 26, 2011

This is our weekly round-up of the tidbits that didn't make it to a post of their own, but are worth noting, along with news items that we've covered that may need a second look.

- CNN announces the Margaret Moth Masters Fellowship.

- Audio problems plagued a headlines update on CNN International on Thursday. In this video you can hear that Michael Holmes' microphone is not turned on. Instead, we hear audio from another microphone of someone who is typing. You then hear Richard Quest (who had just finished his program, Quest Means Business) ask "why" shortly before vision cuts back to him in London where he does the headline update.

- The Daily Show takes a look at this week's on air "fued" between Nic Robertson and Fox News Channel.

- CNN's Soledad O'Brien chronicles the fight over a mosque's construction in the heart of the Bible Belt in a new documentary, Unwelcome: The Muslims Next Door. The program screens at 8p and 11p (eastern) tonight on CNN Domestic. Watch the trailer here.

- Variety's Brian Lowry writes that CNN's success during times of crisis isn't a very good business model. (via ICN)

- Former CNN anchor Aaron Brown has some pretty harsh words for Eliot Spitzer and Anderson Cooper, as well as cable news in general. Read the interview with TV Newser here.
