Welcome to News Meeting, a regular feature where we pose a journalistic question suggested by recent headlines (i.e. “Should newspapers cover the rumor of John Edwards’s affair?”) and then discuss the question in the comments section. CJR staffers will join with readers in expressing and defending their opinions on some of the top media issues of the day. Please join the fray.
