Linkin Park: The Media Edition

Rediff Citizen Reporter
On the lines of CNN-IBN’s Citizen Journalist initiative, Rediff is encouraging readers to send in their reports about the forthcoming state elections. Some of you might remember that a student of Sathyabama Engg College had sent some pictures to CNN-IBN during the recent controversy.

New Indian Express E-paper
Chennai-based New Indian Express now offers its paper in the E-paper version. I hope these guys do away with the crappy free registration thingie.

Readers’ Editor or Fact Checker?
The Hindu’s Readers’ Editor has been around for a month now and I don’t see a big impact so far. All I can see is the daily "Corrections and Clarifications" that is being published. Do they really need a Readers’ Editor to handle this role? Doesn’t a newspaper need to perform this anyway? In the absence of a Readers’ Editor, somebody else working for the newspaper might have ended up doing this role.

DNA Blogs Page
In case you are not aware, DNA has a Blogs page which links to blog posts on a daily basis. They have a specific topic everyday and some selected blog posts related to the topic are featured under the Blogs section.

Nexus between intelligent readership and astrology
Does having an astrology column mean that the newspaper is not commited to intelligent readers?

  • Seems, the letter writer to Hindu, has an impression that Intelligent guys don't believe astrology and hate it.

    I believe astrology.. but not to the level that I won't attempt anything with the assumption that today is not my favourite date. Does it question my intelligence level?

    I believe he is trying to distinquish HINDU from other newspapers publishing astrology.

  • @Raajk,
    thanks for the info. have updated the post.

    @Ram,
    i somehow feel that it is wrong to arrive at such wrong generalizations like what has been mentioned in the letters to the editor.

    @samy,
    this is the title i use for the links section.
