Romanesko of the Poynter Insitute is a news-junkie site probably better known under its earlier name Medianews. It's been criticized as being as left-wing as the elite media it often covers, and at the moment that charge would hold up. One of the greatest meltdowns in English-language journalism is taking place at the BBC, but its home page offers virtually no coverage--a couple of links on the lower-priority left-hand column, without comment. Its featured international story at the moment is a bid by British gazillionaires to buy the company that own the Chicago Sun-Times. Maybe after that scandal is settled, Romanesko can get around to the resignation of the BBC's chairman and director general, in the wake of an independent report that cratered the Beeb's reputation over Andrew Gilligan's false story that Tony Blair's intelligence dossier had been "sexed up" to support the Iraq War.

In the meantime, however, you can read a riveting account headlined Student journo drops WP name during grapefruit bill spat
