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."

Joel McNally on Media's Protestations of Unbiasment: Two Great Quotations

Editors love it when they get complaints from both parties. They say it proves they aren’t biased one way or the other. But it just as easily could prove they’re doing such a lousy job that everyone is appalled.

Now it appears the self-anointed tribunals of truth can’t even recognize political bias when they are immersed in it. We don’t know who discovered water, but we can be pretty sure it wasn’t a fish.

"freedom of speech on steroids but still fact checked. It has to be free and open. To all people. By any means. Everywhere"

Content has a life cycle of it’s own and the value of content is pretty much built up by it’s freshness (how breaking is the content), how unique is it, and how emotional the content is. Breaking news content will always be in high demand. The life time and stickiness of the content improves with supporting relevant material such as context, facts and opinions, together with providing the audience with the capability of interacting with the content with ratings, comments and topical forums.

Scott Karp's "It’s Not Citizen Journalism Or Crowdsourcing - It’s Just Journalism"

I don't care about the terms so much, but I am very concerned with defining journalism as process and standards (which everyone has to talk about more) and not as a profession.

Assignment Zero Pro-Am journalism: what was the point?

So Jay Rosen's Assignment Zero - http://zero.newassignment.net/ - is done, did not by force of momentum turn into a huge community of citizen amateur and professional journalists, and a leader of the project openly asks if it failed. http://www.wired.com/techbiz/media/news/2007/07/assignment_zero_final

Tish Grier has a more positive take, and I respect her opinion.

But I never saw the point of the project in the first place.

Fluff media as pornography crowding out real news, a counterpoint: breaking the barrier between news and reality

Bob McCannon posted to the Action Coalition for Media Education (ACME) discussion list Robert Lipsyte's commentary in USA Today, A different type of porn: The Four F's — Food, Fashion, Fitness and Finances — masquerade as news, blotting out information we really need. (One post appeared to attribute the article to Kevin Taglang, and I made that mistake in my original post; this is corrected below.)
