What is covered and what should be covered: Mom asking how to spell potatoes brought up the comedic obsession

Any of us who purport to do journalism need to focus on what matters. Instead there is a focus on what is easy to say. Something wrong or meaningless or both, but it fits into the story that has already been told. Al Gore as exaggerator. (Not more than any other politician, especially not for the usual claims against him.) Dan Quayle as dumb.

A landmark in the decline of local newspapers, as reported in a local newspaper with real quotes that merely read like satire.

Disclosure: Richard Anderson was a fellow winner of the Knight News Challenge (for rather a great deal more money).

This article caught my particular attention because i had met the owner in the context of his project to open source Village Soup's "successful community news software, combining professional journalism, blogs, citizen journalism, online advertising and 'reverse publishing' from online to print."

Suddenly we are paying attention to central Africa

i was avoiding this debate but conversation with my mother spilled onto Facebook.
