Making Media Transparent

In an article in Slate, Jack Shafer argues that Jim Romenesko's Web site is making journalism more transparent by publicizing journalistic transgressions that would otherwise not have gotten much attention in the media. He cites the example of Mitch Albom, whose column in the Detroit Free Press has been suspended pending an investigation into an article that he wrote. According to Shafer, Romenesko's coverage of the incident allowed it to become a national story. Might be a site worth checking out regularly.
