And Now, Some Good News at The Times
After taking them to task last week for what felt like an unusual number of careless errors -- including running the same story twice in Thursday's paper -- it's only fair to point out that the Los Angeles Times is still churning out plenty of kick-ass journalism.
The paper just landed three first-place awards in the annual Scripps Howard National Journalism content, including the web reporting prize for Mexico Under Siege, as well as the photojournalism prize for Michael Robinson Chavez's portfolio and the Washington reporting prize for David Willman's take on the federal investigation of the 2001 anthrax scare.
(On the downside, Willman is no longer with the Times, having left Tribune at the end of last year after its D.C. downsize.)
