Here's Proof That Not Everybody in the MSM is Asleep at the Wheel

This may be hard for some of you out there in the Blogosphere to believe but there really are lots of serious, creative people in the MSM who understand the challenges and opportunities presented by the new media. Tim Porter is one of those folks and his "Intentional Journalism" posting today is a fine illustration of that fact.

Among much else, it contain's Tim's five recomendations to MSM newsroom powers-that-be for how they can cut the journalese BS and reinvigorate their organizations. I don't necessarily agree with everything Tim suggests, but, after spending more years than I care to remember in a bunch of daily newspaper newsrooms, I can tell you he's got something important to say. Definitely worth a read here.
