NPR: Love ya, but you're wrong  —  NPR has told its staff they may not attend the Stewart/Colbert rallies in Washington at the end of the month.  I think they're terribly wrong here, following the journalistic worldview Jay Rosen calls the view-from-nowhere to its extreme and forbidding employees to be curious.

Jeremy / @JeremyLittau:
Chile is a story about journalism's failure (updated)  —  Jay Rosen, as usual, beat me to the punch with his thoughts this morning on the Chile mine story.  This is why I tweet more than I blog; sometimes you just say it and fill in the gaps later.  I did a bit of mini-ranting last night, at least.
