I'm the BBC's media correspondent and this is my brief selection of what you need to know.

Virgin Media has gained 38,000 new cable customers, its best performance since it was formed from the merger of Telewest and NTL four years ago according to the Guardian.

Allison Pearson writes in the Daily Mail that she's giving up her Daily Mail column because she's suffering from depression.

The Guardian reports that the Sunday Times is luring people to its new paywall website with the chance to set Sky TV recordings remotely.

What happened to the "internet" election? Blogger Iain Dale says in the Telegraph it's not happened.

Steve Hewlett says on the Today programme that the parties are still trying to use new media.
