Link Dump – Immigration and Journalism tidbits

Things I want to talk about but – oh dear!  where does the time go?

Immigration Things

  • SB 1070 goes into effect on Thursday, July 29, and there will be protests. Wish I could find one here to go to, and that I wasn’t going to be in class all day.

Journo Things

  • Bookseller of Kabul author, Asne Seierstad found guilty of defamation, and must pay damages to a woman who charged she was unfairly portrayed in a “humiliating, untruthful way.” What are the ramifications for journalists?
  • I feel sorry for whoever has to go out and write stories like this one, about two young men found hanged.  Sensational headline accomplished, it’ll get you pageviews but what useful information is in here? Interviewing a totally irrelevant dog walker who didn’t see anything? Seriously? I hope I never have to write like this.
