The Media

Media as charity

“You won’t find the name Kardashian on our website,” MinnPost’s executive editor Andrew Putz said. We were sitting in a circle in a Minneapolis warehouse where MinnPost, an online news outlet for the Minnesota area, has its offices. MinnPost is a non-profit media organisation that depends on grants and donations for a large chunk of its income. The site offers daily updates with mainly background stories and analyses, serving a highly educated public who also read The New Yorker and the New York Times (and generally couldn’t care less about the Kardiashians).

In Boston looking for the real Romney

In Boston looking for the real Romney

Martin Baron has been the top editor of The Boston Globe for 11 years and during that time has become a close observer of Mitt Romney.

Romney was governor of Massachusetts for four of those years (2003–2007) and also ran an unsuccessful senate race in that state against Ted Kennedy in 1994.

Like any good local paper, the Globe has scrutinised their man.
