One of my favorite US media outlets is the Christian Science Monitor. They have four guiding principles which many other media players seem to have forgotten:
Be unrelenting but fair.
Be excited by what’s new and developing – yet always mindful of history.
Be broad in scope but written for the individual.
Make a point of resisting the sensational in favor of the meaningful.
With that in mind, have a look at CSM’s top five overlooked stories of 2010:
2. TARP is cheaper than expected
3. Common school standards
4. Rise of natural gas
5. Twilight of the desktop
Fascinating stuff . . .
