The work-in-progress answer

livemint.com — I don't really know this 60-year-old very well any more. I wasn't alive for her first 20 or so years. And I haven't been around for her last 20 or so years. So, when I am asked-quite frequently-how it feels to be back home, I have to pause and search for words that say what I mean and mean what I want to say.

A thaw in the newsroom glacier

niemanlab.org — Here is hoping 2015 will see: - The Pulitzer Prizes are not given to the same annual one-day wonders. - Stories on Jill Abramson morph into stories from Jill Abramson. - More math - any math - in all those gushy profiles of new media startups and journalism's saviors.

niemanlab.org — Over the past 22 years, 1,059 journalists have been killed. Worldwide, some 430 journalists are in exile from their home countries.

We need to talk: 26 awkward questions to ask news organizations about the move to digital

niemanlab.org — Here are 25 awkward questions (and one counter-question) that I wish media reporters/critics would routinely ask of editors and mainstream news organizations, each year.

Loosen the newsroom’s chokehold on the brand

niemanlab.org — Any American editor will proudly tell you that the newsroom - and especially The Editor - is the sole custodian of the news(paper) brand, the true keeper of what the masthead is really meant to represent.
