After the holiday…

            Here’s what I expect to be posting next week, unless events intervene:

            ● Monday: How does Los Angeles Times child welfare reporting compare to the standards set in the section of the Times’ own Code of Ethics on sources?  (Hint: About as well as you’d expect).

            ● Tuesday: How about the section of the Code of Ethics on “precision”? (About the same).

            ● Wednesday: Why do reporters like the Times’ Garrett Therolf take the easy way out and avoid writing about families whose children were wrongly taken away?  A much better reporter at a much smaller paper on the other side of the country has one possible answer.
