A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

David Shaw, RIP: Los Angeles Times media critic David Shaw died last night. Though Shaw was disdainful of bloggers (they don’t have “four experienced editors” checking their copy), he was also a talented and honest journalist. I first ran across Shaw’s work nearly a decade ago as I was working on my senior project at Cal Poly SLO -- an analysis of abortion coverage in the Los Angeles Times in 1990. In my extensive Lexis-Nexis research, I discovered a series by Shaw examining the very same thing.

I found Shaw’s criticisms of extensive bias against the pro-life position in American media to be well-founded, and his research helped me guide my own work.

He will be missed.

Mr. Shaw played a role in my SLO senior project, too. I respected his work and wish that our profession included more peers of his ilk.
 
Just in case you didn't know, his 1990 LAT series is on line here.
