An Editorial from Jane's, 9/11: in search of context and meaning
"Fiction, non-fiction, news, news analysis and opinion... And unfortunately we continually mix and merge these groupings, using them in similar ways and often believing them to contain similar weight and importance." "We now tend to respond to the news rather than attempting to get behind it and create policy."

Arundhati Roy on the tragedy.
The most eloquent and thoughtful essay I've read so far. Coincidentally, about the only good journamlism I've encountered on the subject has been from British and French press.

The Examiner spells it out.
As a newspaper page designer (for a much smaller, tamer paper), I wonder what you all think of the San Francisco Examiner's semi-profane but heartfelt front-page headline. On one hand, it's editorializing, but on the other, it expresses what an awful lot of people are thinking. I think I like it, but I also know it'd never get printed in a lot of papers, including my own.

'Oh my God they are jumping.'
The British press covers the attacks with an emphasis on the people who jumped [graphic photo advisory
]. I noticed the same thing watching BBC World on cable Tuesday -- is the U.S. press showing restraint with images like this?
