In the weeks since I’ve posted anything substantial here, it seems almost every notable blog has redesigned. (Where’s this one’s? Still sitting, unfinished on a test server.) There’s also been an election called in Canada, and a number of interesting developments in the news world. With my dad’s recovery progressing quite nicely, it’s about time to kick this blog back into gear and start covering these events.
This particular collection is gathered primarily from journalism lists and sites:
- Steve Gilliard explains how to read a newspaper story, while Christopher Allbritton explains how tough it is to report in Baghdad.
- A conservative-titling panel is observing biases in the election coverage of seven Canadian newspapers. Their observations are another interesting way to understand the way the news is produced.
- The BBC has decided to use a Creative Commons licence for the online distribution of its archives. The broadcaster’s decision to release its archives is being felt in North America, too. The CBC has some of its own archives online, and the American PBS is also selective releasing shows, notably Frontline’s “The Way Music Died”
