Journalism Web Resources

The following links are a few Journalism resources that I have stumbled upon and already found useful and/or compelling (pre-formal-start-of-grad-school).  This is an evolving list:

Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism

What It Is:  A non-profit organization whose goal is to help both the journalists who produce the news and the citizens who consume it develop a better understanding of what the press is delivering, how the media are changing, and what forces are shaping those changes.  They emphasize empirical research in the belief that quantifying what is occurring in the press, rather than merely offering criticism, is a better approach to understanding.

Why It’s Useful:  PEJ’s Daily Briefing is a run down of significant current events and trends or impacts to journalism.  Their website is a veritable cache of media-related information, studies, and resources.

Yahoo Style Guide

What It Is:  A guide of best practices for writing, editing, and creating content for the digital world.

Why It’s Useful:  The web journalist’s bible, use this website to search Ask the Editor, Word Lists, and basic tips on writing online content.
