Quick Hits

I've been neglectful of doing a daily recap and roundup this week — I just finished a project — but here's a few quick hits of stories of interest:

GlaxoSmithKline, promoting a new weight loss drug, partners with the Creative Coalition to fund a documentary on obesity, raising some eyebrows as to the intergrity of the project.

Ted Koppel could be returning to ABC as host of "This Week," and Brian Lowry likes the prospect.

Maureen Dowd says President Obama is a fan of "Mad Men," but is keeping a safe distance from show biz.

Peter Biskind's new Warren Beatty biodetails the star's flirtation with running for president, but it's his wife Annette Bening, who advisers thought would be better fit for the political route.
