The great challenge of reading “news” in the Information Age is negotiating the thin line between crackpot blog sites and flailing corporate media machines. Betwixt the pap and piffle labor great writers, thinkers and correspondents—real live journalists who rely on the Chicago Manual of Style, believe in sourcing their quotes and look forward to a round or two of fact-checking before publication. The Morning News does not feature personal rants, short fiction, shopping guides or poetry. The Morning News publishes news—which means articles, interviews, essays, non-expert advice columns, social commentary and other features by its own contributors—all with a certain New York flair. Folger’s be damned—this is the best part of waking up.
