This month, CJR presents “Required Skimming,” a daily miniguide to our staffers’ beats and obsessions, ranging from finance to food. If we overlooked any of your must-read destinations, please tell us in the comments.

StreetFight is a site dedicated to coverage of online hyperlocal projects.

• Including CJR’s Guide to Online News Startups is self promotion, yes, but we really do have a well-written resource with in-depth information about startup news sites around the country.

Business Insider tends toward the hyperbolic, but it consistently covers AOL’s Patch and other hyperlocal companies, analyzing whether their business models make sense.

• It’s not updated often but, when it is, Patch’s company blog is a firsthand, PRy source to keep abreast of what’s up with the oft-scrutinized hyperlocal venture.

If you'd like to get email from CJR writers and editors, add your email address to our newsletter roll and we'll be in touch.
