Totally rude, totally annoying, totally what I’m doing right now.
I have some big news that I’ll be sharing here later this week. News that’s only a little bit about me. It’s really about online news and journalism in Canada — and something new that’s coming along very soon.
I know, the only thing more annoying than someone blogging about some silly award is them doing that and then teasing you with something that they’ll blog about a few days later.
But apart from that, I’m pretty pleased to share that my column for Columbia Journalism Review is a finalist for a Mirror Award for “Best Commentary—Digital Media.” Here are the four columns that were submitted:
- “Violating the ‘Contract of Correction’“
- “Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, Wrong“
- “The New Great American Pastime“
- “Speed Demons“
My fellow finalists are Matthew Pressman (Vanity Fair) and Eric Alterman (Center for American Progress). Here’s their excellent work:
- Eric Alterman (Center for American Progress)
- Matthew Pressman (Vanity Fair)
The awards will be handed out in New York on June 10 at a luncheon hosted by Katie Couric. At The Plaza Hotel. Seriously. Now can you forgive me for posting about this?
