Josh Barone and Eve Edelheit drew a big shout-out from design dude Charles Apple on his blog Sunday. Great photo + lovely design = journalism at its best. Congratulations to everyone involved.
I want to add my own shout-outs to Ren Bishop and Kelsey Kennedy for their work on the shooting death of Aaron Hobson. This is a sad story that was well-reported.
On a happier note, Eva Dou and Kyle Deas’s post-game madness story was great reading.
Wait, I’m not done. Advanced reporting students Joan Niesen, Dieter Kurtenbach and Lenny Goldman apparently did not sleep all weekend. Go to the “Latest Sports” tab on our website and scroll down if you think I’m exaggerating.
I know I’m leaving people out. If you had anything at all to do with this weekend’s terrific coverage of all the news, consider yourself patted on the back. This is what it’s all about: video, slideshows, text, and one incredibly evocative cover photo.
We’ll talk in more detail tomorrow in class about this effort and what we learned.
