Now On J-Source: RRJ Defends Its Wentegate-Globe Analysis; Penashue Accuses CBC And Liberals Of Being "like Family;" Curation Site Newsana Launches

TORONTO, April 11, 2013 /CNW/ -


Ryerson Review defends its Wentegate analysis By Brittany Devenyi and Rhiannon Russell When the  Ryerson Review was initially writing its cover story on the Margaret Wente plagiarism scandal,  The Globe and Mail's publisher Phillip Crawley told the team of student writers that  "If the  Ryerson Review publishes a piece about the  Globe that is balanced and fair, that will be a first." Taking it as a challenge, the students say they were acutely aware of the challenges of writing about one of Canada's biggest journalism stories of 2012. You can read their defence of their coverage and the RRJ's original story on J-Source.

Ethics: How the Nanaimo Daily News should have dealt with the racist letter to the editor By Ginny Whitehouse The Nanimo Daily News publisher may not want that racist letter to the editor to define the paper's identity, but it certainly shaped public perception. Making the newspaper look bad isn't the real ethical issue: Having an entire people's identity marginalized is a much bigger problem. The absence of a bad intention does not excuse a bad result, writes a journalism ethics professor.
