Thanks, Al:

Al's Morning Meeting, written by the Poynter's Al Tompkins, is five years old today.

To me, this site is one of the best examples ever for a journalism blog. It pulls together useful sources for stories in the news, or for stories that should be in the news. It prods reporters and editors to become better researchers. It should certainly prod researchers to think more about what stories or resources they should be suggesting to reporters and editors.

Al gets help from other Poynter staffers like Larry Larsen, and today credits his intern editor, who is just starting out in journalism. It's a great resource.
