Medienüberwacher Romenesko


Slate berichtet über Jim Romenesko und wie dessen Medienwebsite die journalistische Community in den USA beeinflusst:

«All this prolific linking torments hacks and other corner-cutters, but the less obvious consequence is its effect on journalistic standards. The site functions brilliantly as an ad hoc, post-publication, peer review mechanism for the journalistic profession. It also contributes to journalistic transparency. No newsroom memo or in-house letter of any consequence circulates inside a newspaper for very long before being posted on Romenesko Memos or Romenesko Misc.»
