What is The Laurel?

The Laurel Club was an organization of Connecticut legislative reporters established in 1909.  It was formed “To foster cooperation among legislative newspapermen; to promote better government by accurate and fearless reporting; to puncture the overinflated egos of legislators.”

We at The Laurel aim to carry the torch of the Laurel Club by keeping the states media outlets in the limelight.  We will attempt to bring out what is going on in the Connecticut media and monitor its shifts in style and substance as well as its structural changes.

We invite all interested parties to participate.

Welcome to The Laurel!
