Stats Note: Pew’s Project for Excellence in Journalism

  • State of the News Media 2007

    • There are growing questions about whether the dominant ownership model of the last generation, the public corporation, is suited to the transition newsrooms must now make.
    • Blogging is on the brink of a new phase that will probably include scandal, profitability for some, and a splintering into elites and non-elites over standards and ethics. The use of blogs by political campaigns in the mid-term elections of 2006 is already intensifying in the approach to the presidential election of 2008.

Book Reviews

Only 18 people gave me a printed copy; 16 of those have been graded. Two have no name — care to claim? I’ll grade these two (and the remainder) after I finish the proposals (expect to finish those on Wednesday).

Share feedback with your triad. Reviews of note:
