Two British journalists arrested last month by a Libyan militia group in a direct challenge to the authority of the country's new government have been accused of spying, the Guardian reported. To justify the arrest the militia group said that "suspicious material" was found on the two men. This included a field dressing in a black wrapper which he said was suspicious because it was "made in Israel" and lists of Tripoli militia members killed in clashes last year, the article explained.

Poynter reflects on the relationship between the newsrooms and individual journalists creating a personal brand through their accounts on social media.

Also on Poynter, an article reported how the Huffington Post reached its largest audience ever last Monday due to the coverage of the Oscars. Social sharing gets some of the credit for the 13.3 million unique visitors that came to the site, which was recently identified by Newswhip research as one of the top three most viral news sources, the article said.
