Book Notes

Several items of note:

  • Patrick Frey, whose right-of-center Patterico's Pontifications blog has been a useful thorn in the side of the Los Angeles Times, has posted a kind and thoughtful review of We the Media. (He disagrees, in a separate posting, with one particular line in the book.)

  • The Financial Times ran a long article this week about my book and a related book by a British journalist. I can't point to the piece, by Alan Cane, because it's behind a subscription wall. But it's a deep look at some the big issues facing journalism.

    Interestingly, Frey's piece comes on the day when we learned that the LA Times is closing its national print edition, citing the Internet as a good enough way to reach readers outside the LA metro area.

    I also got an email this morning from Phil Shapiro, noting a (relatively) long-ago conversation he had with a Washington Post reporter. Journalism is changing, he observes.
