Editorial Reviews

Columbia Journalism Review's mission is to encourage and stimulate excellence in journalism in the service of a free society. It is both a watchdog and a friend of the press in all its forms, from newspapers to magazines to radio, television, and the Web. Founded in 1961 under the auspices of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, CJR examines day-to-day press performance as well as the forces that affect that performance. The magazine is published six times a year, and offers a deliberative mix of reporting, analysis, criticism, and commentary. CJR.org, our Web site, delivers real-time criticism and reporting, giving CJR a vital presence in the ongoing conversation about the media. Both online and in print, Columbia Journalism Review is in conversation with a community of people who share a commitment to high journalistic standards in the U.S. and the world.

By John Williamson TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 12, 2012
It was a pleasant surprise to find the Columbia Journalism Review available here in the Kindle format, but also a disappointment. The surprise came from the fact that this reader has always enjoyed the excellence in journalism found in CJR's Website and in their printed material; the disappointment is that it will only be issued every two months.

CJR was founded in the early 1960s under the auspices of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, and for this reader, they represent the high high journalistic standards that we should expect in the world today. They have been a "watchdog and a friend of the press in all its forms, from newspapers to magazines to radio, television, and the Web," and it's this form of balance that has made them so good since just before the Vietnam Era.

The content is excellent. Looking through the current issue, we find the Language Corner column, where Merrill Perlman takes a look at the word "Grudge," and observes that the word has its roots in an old German word meaning "lament," that it's a lot of fun to say. Among other things he states:

"The noun 'grudge' means 'hostility or ill will against someone over a real or fancied grievance,' or the cause of that resentment, says Webster's New World College Dictionary (Fourth Edition). 'He bears a grudge because a woman was promoted instead of him' is one example.

There is a section by Marla Jo Fisher entitled Beyond 'Deep Throat,' where reporters find themselves in odd situations, offering anecdotes from various journalists. Elysse James, a reporter for the Orange County Register offered this:

"I covered a police-dog funeral for the Long Beach Press-Telegram.

This is an EXCELENT MAGAZINE and I've subscribed to it for some years -- in print form, then print/online and now in emagazine form on my iPad. I just realized, however, that while this magazine publishes every two months (6 issues per year), Amazon Kindle is charging me a monthly subscription rate of $1.99. This means I'm paying $23.88 instead of the ordinary rate of $19.99 charged by Columbia Journalism Review, Zinio and other emagazine services. Am cancelling this subscription "plan" immediately for obvious reasons.

Most interesting and mind pleasing! Great escape into a new realm with each read !! Amazing learning experience every time! Kids like being read to no matter what it is you are reading!! What a good feeling having kiddos take pen and paper and become "writers" instantly!!! Have them enjoy the good fieeling you get inside from the smell and feel of different types of paper and ink!! Friends and pets say and do things the writer only dreams about! No rules except those in their head!!

This edition is clean and easy to read. I really like that I can read it on my iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and my Google Nexus 7 tablet. Because I can get it on all my devices and I can store all my old issues, I feel like it is a good equivalent to the print version.
