Helping new journalists

Crossposted on Daily Kos.

As all of you know, I started writing posts here about the importance of an open sourced media list. So far, my posts have been pretty sporadic (this is my third!) and not very long. It's quite a bit easier to put things out in the form of an embryonic suggestion and hope to develop it through comment based conversation, but my inner laziness and my lack of reputation here on Daily Kos have made that hard to accomplish.  Let's hope that both of those change.

In my first post, I wrote about how having these lists handy would allow young journalists to establish themselves and get pieces published, as well as helping smaller publications get more attention.  I'd like to correct that by saying it's good for new journalists rather than just young journalists.

Why the distinction? Kick the flip.

Media Project: Need Help

Hi, everyone.

I infrequently post here, and usually to Breaking Blue, so I don't know how many of you are going to see this. I have been thinking for a while now that one of the things that'd be a really useful tool for the liberal, progressive and Democratic movements (I consider all three to be different, although not necessarily discrete or distinct) is a site listing all the publications, major and minor, relating to our movement and to politics, along with submissions guidelines.

More on TEH FL1P! (Sorry, feeling very internet humourish today.)
