Check out Media Standards Trust, a nonprofit with the old-fashioned goal to foster high standards in news

There are still people who think the news media should have high standards. Martin Moore, director of the UK-based nonprofit, Media Standards Trust, and the recent winner of Knight Foundation News Award, has an interesting blog.

I'm not saying this because he liked some comments I made to a recent blog, Why charities need to become more like news organisations. I think he's asking some interesting questions, and is looking for new ways to achieve strong standards in an age when anyone with Internet access and a blog can call himself a pundit without having to do real hard work of journalism. (I include myself in that category.)
