All The Green News That Fits

Green Blog Gone

Those of us who live in the U.S.A. are familiar with Freedom of the Press which is a part of the first amendment of our Constitution. But the idea of journalistic responsibility is less familiar, if just as important. While there are many codes of journalistic ethics and standards, most include the principles of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability. Unfortunately, The New York Times has closed both their Environment desk and Green Blog. I feel the New York Times has compromised their own journalistic ethics and has, in part, abandoned their duty to audience.

While my voice is just one voice and this website is just one website, I will no longer publish the New York Times Environment or Green (now defunct) blog feeds. For many years I had considered the NYT a reliable news source and referenced their environmental reporting since 2007. I am quite disappointed to see that change.

In the meantime, I am looking for new sources for environmental news and I welcome your suggestions.
