Fellas! The media power bachelorettes are here, courtesy of pink listicle factory the New York Observer. Full disclosure: Jen Doll and Maura Johnston of this here Village Voice are both on the list, lending it a distinctly 36 Cooper Square flair. This blogger was spared, which meant that there was plenty of time to fact-check the list, which we did yesterday with the hunky bachelors. This time, we couldn't find many mistakes at all (did we scare you yesterday, NYO?). What we really found were some questions and observations. Behold:

The New York Observer, a publication which really enjoys a good media power list here and there, has a new one out today. It's "The Free Agent List: 2011's 50 Most Eligible Media Bachelors." Look, there's poor Brian Stelter on the front, kissing a black hole where his girlfriend used to be. Fifty strapping young (or not very young at all) media guys, just ripe for the taking, ladies.

Meanwhile, bombing commenced from allied forces and Gaddafi's troops struck back against their own people in the embattled African nation. As Times executive editor Bill Keller put it in a memo this morning, he and his colleagues held their "enthusiasm and comments in check until [the journalists] were out of the country," but the paper has indeed confirmed that Lynsey Addario, Tyler Hicks, Anthony Shadid and Stephen Farrell have arrived safely in Tunisia. Still, at least 13 journalists covering the conflict remained detained in Libya. More on the Times group's release, plus more media news inside Press Clips, our daily round-up.

lauren_audrina_hills_cry.jpg

​After a 285-day stint, I am abdicating my post here at The Village Voice. I'm going to work for Esquire.com, so I may -- as one commenter noted -- continue my work as a "a twentysomething angel of death."
