The Romenesko Effect

The Romenesko Effect - How a one-man Web site is improving journalism
Two weeks ago he made Los Angeles Times reporter Eric Slater a national topic. Slater, a Times veteran, penned a March 29 story about Chico, Calif., that contained so many unnecessary anonymous sources, factual errors, and oddities (such as a named source nobody else can locate) that it's hard to figure out exactly what went wrong in its preparation. A lengthy Times correction followed, as did a chiding story in the local paper. According to the Chico State Orion, to which Romenesko links today, the Los Angeles Times dispatched a staffer to Chico last week to retrace Slater's steps, something I can't imagine would have happened if the paper hadn't been nationally embarrassed by Romenesko.

With a newborn on the way, I'm checking baby blogs for all the advice I can get. I'm also on the lookout for any baby products which might come in handy. One thing I really surprised my wife with was a diaper cake that I found on the web. She never expected anything like that from me! Here's where I got mine - diaper cake
