AP’s Accountability Adviser To Be “Player-Coach”

At Politico, Michael Calderone ponders whether the Associated Press’s acting Washington bureau chief, Ron Fournier, is “saving or destroying the AP” with his “accountability journalism” (an example of which I wrote about in November). Calderone reports that although Fournier has only written one piece since becoming acting bureau chief, “he intends to take on a more of a player-coach role, penning one or two pieces a week, and even occasionally hitting the campaign trail.”
