We are the NYU media criticism students of Leslie Savan’s spring 2012 Advanced Reporting class. We are writing our capstone pieces.  Here we will post updates on said pieces. We also reserve the right to post unrelated hat-tips or jabs at any media we encounter.  We will be merciless in this regard.
