The media conference discusses all aspects of print and electronic journalism, with special emphasis on the legal and ethical problems facing practitioners of same. It is a place for gossip, praise, war stories, debate and support.

It’s also a place where media professionals encounter their readers, with amusing and occasionally testy interchanges trying the patience of typists and lurkers alike. After a brief period of conflict, however, all is peaceful, and the two sides share caffeine and sugar.

Our motto since the beginning has been:

“If you don’t like the news, go out and make some of your own.” — Scoop Nisker
