Al's Morning Meeting
June 28, 2005 6:23 PM   Subscribe

Al's Morning Meeting is a smart, well-researched list of story ideas put together by Al Tompkins at the Poynter Institute. Tompkins collects or develops and distributes ideas, adding comments and lots of relevant links, to journalists and others on such timely topics as hybrid cars and dangers to rescuers, interest-only home loans, seasonal jobs, runaway brides and missing adults, and the stellar pope package, offered up the day after John Paul II's death. Al's particularly good when a complex news story develops and reporters need assistance in a hurry. This is a site worth checking each day or sign up for daily e-mail delivery.

Another columnist at Potnter, Romensko is pretty interesting also and focuses on stuff in the media business - very interesting when the Deep Throat unveiling was done - see http://www.poynter.org/column.asp?id=45

"Al" is a moron and his column is a fucking cornucopia of non-stories pre-packaged for no-budget local network TV affiliated who couldn't care less about the news. Cf. Testy Copy Editors. Please tell me I'm missing your sarcasm.

IshmaelGraves, Why'd you link to a forum search? I don't understand the point.
