As a service to readers, here is a compendium of recent reporting and commentary about journalism:
–First up, Boston University Prof. David Carr’s latest Media Equation column for the NYTimes. I have to agree: the legacy media are being disrupted to their cores.
Elsewhere in the Times:
–Here is an “Editorial Observer” opinion piece by Times reporter Ernesto Londono, noting the passing (for now, anyway) of a Defense Dept policy of “embedding” journalists with military units in war zones. Well worth reading, from one who was there.
–I’m delighted to see the run-up in the valuation of Vox, a remarkably and consistently interesting online news site, run by CEO Jim Bankoff and led editorially by Ezra Klein. Apparently, investors feel they can bank on Bankoff.
IN OTHER NEWS. . .
Here is a package in the Boston Globe about the experiences three of their journalists are having now, while they are being portrayed by

Here is the latest episode of Brian Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” on CNN.
And here is the latest from NPR’s “On the Media.”
