Journalistic 'told you sos' and cartoons

Now that the John Karr story is old news, a few experts are railing at the news media that insisted it was a big story: here's Jeff Jarvis; Editor & Publisher; Bob Geiger in Eat the Press; Washington Post's Howard Kurtz on 'The JonBenet Fraud'. From Geiger:
And this giant waste of time and resources, occurred at the expense of real news affecting real lives: A major crisis in the Middle East, a civil war in Iraq that's killing an average of 100 Iraqis a day and with our troops stuck smack-dab in the middle of it.

Via the Online Journalism Award nominations, a link to a cartoonist I thought I didn't know, but turns out he's the artist behind 'Zits', one of my favorite comic strips: The Cincinnati Enquirer's Jim Borgman has a blog on the paper's website, with recent drawing projects, cartoons, and scanned pages from his notebooks: BorgBlog. Very nice.


  • How about a "Told You So" on the phony Plamegate investigation? It now turns out that Bush policy critic, Richard Armitage, was the Robert Novak's source in the leak of Valerie Plame's name. So much for all the accusations by "journalists" that the leaker was Karl Rove.
