Julie Moos / Poynter:
Romenesko resigns after 12 years at Poynter — After twelve years of blogging at Poynter, Jim Romenesko has submitted his resignation and I have accepted it. Jim has decided he's ready for a fresh start now — seven weeks before he was scheduled to become a part-time employee and start his own blog.

Jim Romenesko and the case of the missing quote marks — Jim Romenesko will never be anything other than a hero of Web journalism to me. For what seems like the entire history of the form, Romenesko has been culling the work of media reporters and posting them to the Poynter.org site, complete with often-insightful summations.

Poynter faculty respond to questions about Romenesko's practices, resignation — Given that Poynter is a school, with a faculty, it's probably no surprise to anyone that we don't agree on the severity of Jim Romenesko's attribution transgressions. And nobody's telling us to keep quiet either.
