Introducing News Meeting

An open conversation between staffers and readers on the top press issues of the day

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.

Has America ever needed a media watchdog more than now? Help us by joining CJR today.

The Editors are the staffers of Columbia Journalism Review.
