• Jeff Bercovici wants to know: “What’s Regan’s price for selling out her country?” After all, if Regan’s info on Giuliani is that damaging, shouldn’t she divulge it in any case, no matter how much Uncle Murdoch is willing to offer? [Mixed Media/Portfolio]

• Goldman Sachs announced plans to raise a $1 billion philanthropy fund, starting with a quarter-million in (strongly encouraged) donations from the bank’s 350 partners.
