The Laurel talked recently with humorist/radio guy/taught-a-course-on-blogs-at-Trinity-College Colin McEnroe about the new media ventures that are springing up around us: the online Connecticut News Project, Inc. that’s coming this fall, localonlinenews.tv, patch.com which is making inroads in Connecticut, etc. Some thoughts from Colin:
You don’t have to be Dodd partisans (as we admittedly are) to know that there are lots of holes in the recent AP story that regurgitated the Countrywide allegations. Check out Capitol Watch and its link to the Huffington Post story (“Lying Liars and the Reporters Who Enable Them”) challenging the main source of the anti-Dodd/Conrad claims. It’s something that all Connecticut journalists should at least read.
As Sean Connery said in The Untouchables, “Here Endeth the Lesson.”
We’re very sorry to report the death of longtime Danbury News-Times chief photographer David Harple. As mentioned here a while back, Dave had a rare form of kidney cancer and friends had set up a fund to help his family with the costs associated with his treatment. Read Paul Steinmetz’s great tribute to Dave.
