Media Wonks Mourn

Jim Romenesko has resigned from the Poynter Institute

His blog there was the go-to place for media happenings like M&A, layoffs, and scandals.

He was already weeks away from a long planned retirement from the site, when he would go part time, and start his own blog.  (Now updated on my blogroll, but the RSS feed is not yet active.)

The cause was lack of quote marks around some of the quotes.

Romenensko has been meticulously linking and attributing while summarizing for years, and has never gotten a complaint, and the fact that it is a quote is clear from context.

There is some sort of dumb ass pissing contest going on at Poynter.
