news media

We in the news media sometimes do okay in reporting on crises after they happen, but we make a lousy early-warning system. A story cautioning that something might happen just never gets traction. But I was just at an IRC press briefing on Sudan, and it was packed. It's great to see the news media looking ahead and hopefully sounding alarms as we approach the referendum and the risk of renewed war there.
