What to do with newspapers and their blogs

The American Journalism Review has an interesting article about newspapers and how they are adapting and evolving to blogs generated for their Web sites and by their staffers, “Blogging Between the Lines” (found thanks to Romenesko). This is a topic that interests me a great deal, and was actually the topic of my final ethics paper last spring.

I particularly found the Dallas Morning New’s blogging guidelines (at the bottom of the article) interesting. (This is partially because I find their editorial blog fascinating.) Reading the article reminded me of what Carl said when he heard I started this site. “Don’t write about your sources.” Duh. But I guess given other journalist’s mistakes, it’s worth saying.
