Opinion piece with call to action. Well I agree with the sentiment, it isn't substantiated in the story.

Well written summary of the capitalism contiuum. The best line is "Yet capitalism requires us to "need" all that it produces in order to survive."

Good capsulization of the event from 2005 and the conflict between California's shield law and security departments. Good news for citizen journalists (sort of).

A well written and researched idictment of Walmart and the spin doctors, marketers and PR staff who are trying to change perceptions of poor labour practices, discrimination and greed (spin changes perceptions not reality)

Well crafted for a review of popular television. If drama and mystery are your thing - it appears that Numb3rs is a good bet.

Good summary of microcredit schemes. The rating criteria is credible and the results just a bit surprising. As a Kiva lender, I was pleased to see it at the top of the list.

Short summary outlining the success of a collaborative 'guest blogger' weblog on WP site. Analysis seems to end abruptly as if editing cut out the conclusion.

Good critique of mainstream media bias and the work that social media can accomplish. The criticism is broad and should be narrowed to a few decision makers just as credit for good citizen journalism only resides with some bloggers.

Opinion doesn't make news worthy. Opinion about journalism quality should.

I am more convinced after reading this story that we are missing the point. Coulter, Campos and others of their ilk should be ignored but the vast majority of their audiences wouldn't know an ad hominem from a straw man or appeal to spite. If our education system has stopped teaching critical reasoning or any form of discernment then I can only imagine what people might swallow when citizen journalism and social media become their prime source.
