Knight-Bagehot alums: Nominate your best in biz for 2006

December 22, 2006

Greg Farrell, an alumnus of the Knight-Bagehot program for business reporting at Columbia University, is proposing that other alums begin offering nominations for the best in business journalism for 2006 on this blog.

Farrell wrote, “I’d like the Bagehot community to use this bulletin board as a place to comment on good examples of business journalism today, or to point out stories that could have been better, etc.

“In short, feel free to become media critics in your area of specialty–business journalism.

“To start things off, I propose that we spend the final week of the year nominating the ‘best in business journalism’ for 2006. Yes, I know that’s what the Loeb awards are for, but why wait around until the end of June? Let’s get to it!

“My nominee for ‘Best Business Story of 2006’ goes to the team of reporters at the Wall Street Journal who broke the options-backdating story early this year, and have ridden it hard ever since.

“Anyone care to pile on? or disagree, or offer their own suggestions?”
