Jay Rosen discusses NewAssignment.net

Back in late July, NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen announced an initiative called NewAssignment.Net. (Full disclosure: I am one of a medium-sized set of advisors to this project.) The goal of NADN, in my words, is to leverage blog networks and traditional editorial expertise to define, assign, write, and edit news articles covering assignments that might otherwise go unreported. To hear the project explained much more effectively, in Jay’s words, check out this interview with NPR’s On the Media.
