Columbia Journalism Review

From the Columbia Journalism Review:

Relentless: Long famed as the frizzy-haired muckraker of New York’s statehouse, Liz Benjamin has for fifteen years built a reputation for strong investigative reporting, tough questioning, and breaking news in print and online at The Albany Times-Union and the New York Daily NewsTimes-Union editor Rex Smith is succinct: “She is as relentless as the sea.” This year, Benjamin brought her intensity to television, taking over from Brian Taff as anchor of Capital Tonight. CJR’s Joel Meares has a profile.

Dropping out: The University of Colorado at Boulder kicked up a cloud of dust when it announced in August that it had formed a committee to consider the creation of a “new interdisciplinary academic program of information, communication and technology.” The kicker? It had formed another committee to explore the “discontinuance” of its journalism school. Curtis Brainard has the story from the November issue of CJR,  and an update.

Degrees of Rejection: Our language maven, Merrill Perlman, comes to the defense of “refudiate.” Really.
