Odds and ends

  • Star Royals reporter Bob Dutton: “I don’t work for the Royals. I work for The Star — and, hey, I’d like to see us get on a winning streak.” (BLC)
  • Can The Star afford to send Mellinger and a photog to the Olympics? (Fascinating comments, by the way. Former Missouri beat writer Mike DeArmond, who covered eight Olympics, write: “My take is that even if the newspaper industry is swirling down the drain, you go down that drain with a scream and not a whimper. A whimper is not sending someone to the Olympics.” (Greg Hall)
  • Tony’s arbitrary media power rankings. (TKC)
  • Pitch’s Penn story ‘rife’ with errors. (But is it?) (KCC)
  • PRSA: Copying and pasting press releases isn’t plagiarism. (Poynter)
