My media week 23/05/10

Great Lives looked at the life of Carl Sagan, one of the most important popularisers of science and a leading sceptic.

In The Media Show this week Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger and Sunday Times editor John Witherow debated whether readers have to pay to access newspaper websites. Both papers have differing strategies and it will be interesting to see which one emerges as the winner.

ABC’c Big Ideas features a lecture by Professor Terry Eagleton who wonders why God has suddenly reappeared in intellectual debate? I am critical of some aspects of Dawkins’ thought but I found that Eagleton’s arguments for the existence of God left me completely cold.
