So go get CJR…!


Dear Readers,

This is from our latest CJR editorial, “Guarding the Vote,” just

“A story’s tone, its placement, and whether it gets followed up all
have something to do with whether it is perceived by the public as
a big deal. Sometimes the press seems leery of making that
determination. The possibility of manipulation of the vote in
national elections is that kind of story. It’s as if we don’t want
to go there. Consider the battleground state of Ohio…”

And on CJR Daily:

There are polls, and there are polls. As the midterm elections
approach, how much weight should journalists give to the Zogby/Wall
Street Journal interactive poll? Not so much, says our Felix Gillette.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
