Judy Daubenmeier author of “Project Rewire: New Media from the Inside Out”, which takes the view that bloggers may be able to help preserve a vibrant journalism ecology. Daubenmier is a Univ. of Michigan historian and 25-year news-industry veteran. She worked for The Associated Press in Des
Moines and Lansing, Mich., and for the Cedar Rapids Gazette. Daubenmeier left journalism for graduate school after becoming disillusioned with editors who wanted “‘light’ stories, briefer pieces, and simplified fare” that “eliminated just about anything having to do with government or the important public policy issues of the day.” She earned a Ph.D. in history. She has been a volunteer media critic for and for Robert Greenwald’s Outfoxed:Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism. She blogs at News Hounds with other researchers for that film.
