It is clear from responses I am getting that some of you are working journalists and that others have an interest in the news process. So, I am adding Tim Porter’s First Draft blog to the list of Other Places in the right-hand column. Porter has a solid background as an editor and, later, as an independent thinker about journalism problems. He has valuable insights into the big issues. He is unforgiving of bad writing and clichés. And he must be a good guy; he lives in Mill Valley, California, perhaps the favorite of my many former home towns. First Draft is worth a look.
