Story Ideas

A good conference is a boon for reporters; I came away from a day at the Nieman Foundation with a handful of story ideas and lots of new sources to pester. There was some of the usual tension between scholars and journalists–academics often feel news coverage is too simplistic and without enough context; we journalists try to explain the constraints under which we operate. But it’s always good to be reminded of the blinders one might have in approaching a story. Lots more to say on this but no time today as I pack for Bosnia.
