Great place for journalism ...

The CJR article on what became of some 200 journalists who left the Dallas Morning News through layoffs, buyouts and attrition from 2004-2006 is long but worth reading for many reasons.

I admit that one of the things I liked best was this:

The former [DMN] books editor Cheryl Chapman, sixty (who separately sued the newspaper for age and gender discrimination), became a wire editor at the Anchorage Daily News. She feels reinvigorated. “The Anchorage Daily News is a paper run by journalists who care about two things—solid reporting without fear or favor, and memorable writing,” says Chapman. “It’s a great place for a serious journalist.”
