crossposted at MetaFilter. (This is the kind of semi-serious stuff that I’m going to start doing regularly at another location… stay tuned)

Of all the offshoots of the “Stuff White People Like” meme, my favorite is Stuff Journalists Like. From Free Food to Press Passes to Exclusives, this blog is covering everything in the ink-stained-wretch’s lifestyle, including some things they really just barely tolerate. For a more serious look at the Journalistic Profession during this time of Transition/Crisis/Insanity, there’s always Jay Rosen, whose PressThink blog has been previously MetaFiltered and is getting more attention than ever via (shudder) Twitter. Or, for something more in-between… 10,000 Words uses a bright, shiny bunch of tag clouds, maps and other visual aids (plus fun with typography) to tell the journos how it should be done while doing it.

Your Turn...
