Eat them together: Today’s Midday broadcast on MPR was recorded during the Journalism That Matters conference. “Journalists, citizen journalists and members of the public recently got together at Minnesota Public Radio’s UBS Forum to discuss the evolving role of the public in reporting the news.” MPR/Public Insight Journalism’s Michael Caputo, who moderated the forum, comments on the competitive aspect of news.

Rhubarbarism has the best assessment of yesterday’s meta-story of the dispute between MinnPost‘s David Brauer and the Star Tribune‘s Jill Burcum and the rest of the media’s “coverage” of it. He has all the relevant links and appropriate context so just go there and read. I’ve got nothing to add.

MPR’s Bleacher Bums blog has been branching out from baseball. (I did not intend for that sentence to be so alliterative.) They’ve profiled a number of Lynx players. Today’s installment is Seimone Augustus: Our Unknown Superstar.

Citizen Journalism Fundraiser at Trocadero’s Tonight

In conjunction with the ongoing Journalism That Matters/New Pamphleteers conference and the National Conference for Media Reform, there’s a big shindig tonight at Trocadero’s.

Hosted by the Twin Cities Daily Planet and KFAI, the Party for a Media Revolution will start at 8:00pm and feature a whole bunch of hot local music acts (International Reggae All Stars, Cadillac Kolstad and the Flats, Willie Murphy and the Angel Headed Hipsters, Dan Newton, Spider John Koerner, and more).

Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.

Somewhere between the 90 or so folks at the JTM conference and the 3000 people expected for NCMR, it should be a rockin’ good time, for a good cause.
