As promised, here are my top four Good Stories celebrating the Fourth Estate for this week. Good journalism IS happening and we are all the better for it. History's first draft . . .
1. For a near perfect example of giving voice to the voiceless, and for sheer staying power (I woke up thinking about this story): "Here to Aid His Family, Left to Die on the Street" New York Times, Tuesday, April 27.
2. For shedding new light on a hot topic (but stretching my old-school brain): "Social media reshapes journalism" the Austin (Texas) American-Statesman, Saturday, April 24.
