AJR on McClatchy's bureaus

Is it immodest to link to a column that quotes yourself? Well, I can't resist, because the sentiment expressed here in support of the work and focus of our foreign correspondents is just too good to pass up.

Here's a taste from Rem Rieder in American Journalism Review online:

"Global news is local news nowadays," Howard Weaver, the company's vice president for news, wrote in an e-mail to AJR. "There's never been a time in our history when world events had greater impact on Americans--terrorism, security and war in Iraq, obviously, but also immigration, job outsourcing, international trade, African genocide and the possibility of pandemic flu or other global diseases. Does this seem like the right time to cut back?"

    No, it isn't immodest if you think the article is worthy enough. But at the same time, how about linking to the Sac Bee ombudsman column?

  2. Excellent blog, looking forward to reading much more.
