Newsroom transparency

This from Poynter, a journalism education group... what a great idea... and a good model for what we may want to do here... at least in part.

The Newsroom Transparency Blog
The Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Washington, has launched a new blog, "Daily Briefing," that opens the curtain on the newsroom's editorial staff meetings (each weekday morning and afternoon). Online publisher Ken Sands says this is an additional component in the newspaper website's "transparent newsroom" umbrella (which also will include webcasting the news meetings, and now includes an Ask the Editors feature).

It's an interesting read. For example, on Friday blog writer Ken Paulman mused after the 4:30 p.m. news meeting, "We're not sure what to do at this hour with the photo of Saddam in his underwear that appeared in several tabloids today. It's up to the designer and photo editor, we'll see what they come up with."
