Daily Newspapers and Crogs
Robert Kuttner, writing in CJR, takes issue with the idea that newspapers are dying. In particular, check out his thoughts on blogs, reporting and "crogs." I couldn't agree more with what he says about the value of some web sites, the "carefully researched blogs" that he dubs "crogs" and their value. I do it all the time and find them rich, rich sources of information.
Editors of CJR and Kuttner will be talking about his ideas, along with several others: Steve Rattner, former New York Times reporter turned Wall Street investor; Jill Abramson, managing editor of The New York Times; Amanda Bennett, former editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer, now with Bloomberg News; and Jim Brady, executive editor of washingtonpost.com.
When: Wednesday, March 21st, at 7 p.m.
Where: the third-floor Lecture Hall at Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, 116th and Broadway, New York
