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.

Ian Fraser: The British journalist is a one-man clearinghouse for news and analysis on Libor and other banking scandals.

• The Financial Times’s Alphaville: This free blog delivers smart takes for those who want a wonky, deeper dive into financial issues like Libor.

The Wall Street Journal: Its Libor landing page has backgrounders as well as streaming tweets and less-wonky coverage than the FT.

The Economist: Its weekly stories have been perhaps the best explainers of the crisis, showing how the format is still valuable amidst a swarm of up-to-the-second information that’s usually detached from context.

Matt Taibbi: With a muckraker’s view on the scandal, the Rolling Stone writer’s blog zeroes in on why the story matters.
