Good Enough!

A blog about "good enough" things - for those who don't need, can't afford, or don't care about the "very best".

News

I've lately been interested in journalism topics.. despite not posting here in quite a while, which I guess shows a sort of disinterest in "citizen journalism".

In any event, in my opinion it's fairly simple to create a "good enough" news organization - and I purposely don't specify the media because I believe the media part of it to be irrelevant. Here are my criteria:

1. Be accurate. I want news that I can trust to be factual.
2. Cover it in depth. I can read headlines anywhere. When I get interested I will look into it more deeply.
3. Make it easy for me to get your news in whatever media I want.
4. Don't waste my time asking me useless questions ("will it rain tomorrow? We'll let you know after the break/this word/the fold")

It's just that simple.
