Poll: People still seek meaty news on media buffet

By CONNIE CASS  (AP)
A new study finds Americans of all ages are charting their own paths across a media landscape that no longer relies on front pages and evening newscasts to dictate what’s worth knowing.
They still pay heed to serious news even as they seek out the lighter stuff, according to the Media Insight Project.
The conclusions burst the myth of the media “bubble” – the notion that no…

Feta should only be from Greece, not Wisconsin, EU argues

As part of trade talks, the EU wants to limit the use of names like Parmesan, feta and Gorgonzola on cheese made in the United States. The argument is that the American-made cheeses are shadows of the original European varieties and cut into sales and identity of the European cheeses.
The Europeans say Parmesan should only come from the area around Parma, Italy, not from American plants or those…

What bailout exit?’ Portuguese ask, braced for more hardship

What bailout exit?’ Portuguese ask, braced for more hardship

By Andrei Khalip (Reuters) 
Portugal’s international bailout is expected to end in mid-May. That won’t mean the end of hardship for the Portuguese.
To avoid a repeat of the 78 billion euro ($108 billion) financial rescue agreed in May 2011 with the European Union and the International Monetary Fund, Lisbon cannot let up on shrinking its budget gap and trimming a huge sovereign debt.
The economy is…

Latest airline perk: Safe distance from the masses

By SCOTT MAYEROWITZ (AP)
On flights from San Francisco to Hong Kong, first-class passengers can enjoy a Mesclun salad with king crab or a grilled USDA prime beef tenderloin, stretch out in a 3-foot-wide seat that converts to a bed and wash it all down with a pre-slumber Krug “Grande Cuvee” Brut Champagne.
Yet some of the most cherished new international first-class perks have nothing to do with…

Russia tests Obama’s ability to stop its advances

Russia tests Obama’s ability to stop its advances

JULIE PACE (AP)
For President Obama, the U.S. response to the chaos in Ukraine has become more than a test of his ability to stop Russia’s advances. It’s also being viewed through the prism of his decision last summer to back away from his threat to launch a military strike when Syria crossed his chemical weapons “red line” – a decision that has fed into a narrative pushed by Obama’s critics that…

Missing jet creates legion of armchair sleuths

By SCOTT MAYEROWITZ (AP)
There aren’t supposed to be any mysteries in the Digital Age.
The answers to most questions, it seems, can be found using Google or Twitter. So, maybe that’s why the world is captivated by the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and why it has created a legion of armchair sleuths, spouting theories in some cases so strange they belong in science-fiction films.

The Secret Pope Francis Haters

By Barbie Latza Nadeau/ The Daily Beast 
No one can dispute the fact that Jorge Mario Bergoglio has had an extraordinary year since being elected to lead the Roman Catholic Church last March.  Every gesture, from his choice of the name Francis to his penchant for cold-calling parishioners, has endeared him with a most unusual fanclub, including atheists and gays. He has been on the cover of the…

By SCOTT MAYEROWITZ (AP)
United Airlines is getting tough on passengers with oversized carry-on bags, even sending some of them back to the ticket counter to check their luggage for a fee.
The Chicago-based airline has started a push to better enforce rules restricting the size of carry-on bags – an effort that will include instructing workers at security checkpoint entrances to eyeball passengers…
