We’ll be updating our magazine articles often during the holidays, so please keep checking back with us to read Aryeh Neier’s take on the deceptive nature of the word ‘rights’; James Boylan’s reviews of books about everything from the history of the AP to this year’s Scooter Libby trial; a modern answer to that age-old question, “Who Hates the Press?”; and the revelation of who has earned CJR’s Darts and Laurels.


Our daily coverage will return in 2008 with more real-time criticism, commentary, and analysis.


And coming in the January issue of the magazine, “Secrets of the City”— the creator of HBO’s powerful series, The Wire, squares off against two of the most respected newspaper editors in the nation, a debate that sheds light on how journalists cover the American city .

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a last-minute holiday gift, a subscription to the magazine makes a great one.
