Please Help Us – Don’t Hurt Us


It is very important that we follow good form when discussing articles and interviews.  This means:

Please do not reprint entire articles

Please do link to the original source

Please add your own thoughts along with the quoted article or interview

Simply cutting and pasting an article from somewhere else without doing any work whatsoever is not what blogging/writing is about, it is what Cutting and Pasting is about.  If all you want to do is point out an important story to the group please find the latest open thread and add a link.  More people will find it there rather than on an individual post anyway.

Now that we are being treated as a real publishing force, we must adhere to basic rules.

Thanks for helping us.

    Basic Journalism Story Writing

    This will help you write a very short journalism story. Fill in the fields below, then click on the “Write a draft journalism story!” button at the bottom. Each box may include from one to three sentences. Remember that good journalism most often does not include “I,” “you,” or “we.” Keep in mind that journalism is generally in past tense.

    Heh! This makes life so simple that even I can handle it!

    It’s kind of the dummies guide to writing a story. Just fill in the boxes, push a button, and even I, or you, might turn out to be the next Edward R. Murrow or Glenn Greenwald.
