ZENPUNDIT READS CJR
I recommend taking a look at the latest issue of The Columbia Journalism Review
- not because it doesn't hew to the sort of self-congratulatory, urban-yuppie-hipster, smug brand of superficial liberalism that irritates most of America ( it does) - but in spite of that kind of posing the magazine delivers some very interesting articles that are both informative and enlightening. I recommend " Little Murders
" on the death of op-ed illustration - though ironically the website has neglected to post the censored art displayed in the paper copy of the magazine.
Conservatives will have fun with the articles on internal debate among journalists whether or not they should hire armed bodyguards or carry firearms in anarchic war zones or wander about randomly, relying on the goodwill of their fellow men.
( Note that a couple of these media characters decided to joyride with the Iraqi resistance fighters and almost had their heads blown off by an American soldier...who I'm sure would have been court-martialed and had his life ruined had that happened )
