Launching a journalism nonprofit

You may have heard of MinnPost.com, voiceofsandiego.org and propublica.com. All are nonprofit websites dedicated to quality journalism. All must have had their start somewhere. I’ve had a similar idea. I’m an editor at a small local daily, although I’ve had a long stint as a pretty good political reporter. Three reporter friends and myself are looking at founding our own nonprofit online-only journalism organization dedicated to state politics. I should note that all of us have some pretty strong credentials and between us have won a number of awards, so we know we can handle the reporting end of this venture. [more inside]

Journalist/Political Blogging from, and about, Turkey. Censorship issues?

I'm re-locating to Turkey in the upcoming months (due to unrelated circumstances), and whilst there, I intend on starting, and keeping, a regular blog about current events, human rights issues, the EU bid, and such. Photojournalism, where appropriate - and available - will also be included. So, I suppose I have a few questions. (long post, my apologies!) [more inside]

Help a young journo put herself through news writing bootcamp.

I need resources to improve my news writing. I'm already working in a newsroom, so this isn't a"halp mee, I wants to be a writter" post. Rather, I want to increase my fluency in the basics so that tight, accurate prose always flows naturally, even under deadline. I'd also like to increase my vocabulary and craft skills as a writer so that when I'm less pressed for time, I can really make the language dance. [more inside]

Tell me about "Tell me about" ... if you'd be so very kind.

Every time I hear a journalist say "Tell me about ..." when interviewing someone on television, I get really annoyed. It seems so incredibly presumptuous, pompous and impolite to demand an answer of a guest like that. Yet it happens all over the world. Is this standard journalistic practice? What's the reasoning behind it? Anyone else feel the same way or am I being a relic? [more inside]

Letters to the Editor Protocol?

Is there a journalistic protocol that newspapers adhere to when printing letters to the editor? The small town newspaper from where I grew up typically just posts a random assortment of letters from old codgers. However, in the last 3 years or so it has been posting, on an almost weekly basis, letters written by a local man who founded a very prominent White Nationalist organization, and who at one time was one of the most prominent neo-Nazis in America.
