    FEATURES

    IDEAS
    (xx)Globe editorial hits the front page(xx)
    When the Harper government decided to prorogue Parliament, The Globe and
    Mail denounced it on the front page. Geoffrey Stevens asks if the wall
    dividing news from opinion has fallen and whether editorials should stay
    on the editorial page?

    IDEAS
    (xx)Reporting on abuse in the Church should look beyond victims and
    bureaucrats(xx)
    There's more to the story of sexual abuse by clerics than victims,
    abusers and self-protecting bureaucracies, writes Joyce Smith. Part of
    the challenge of reporting on religion is recognizing the spiritual
    element in the story and following the impact of events on relationships
    and faith.

    THE FUTURE OF NEWS
    (xx)Show him the money: Murdoch battles against free content(xx)
    There's no such thing as free news, according to Rupert Murdoch, and he's
    prepared to go to great lengths to prove it. Ira Basen, the new
    contributing editor for J-Source's Future of News area, examines the paid
    content debate.

    AWARDS NEWS
    (xx)If you don't enter, you can't win(xx)
    It's awards season and there are a ton of opportunities out there for
    journalists to enter and win awards. Deadlines are fast approaching so
    check out the J-Source Awards section for info, listings, links and
    announcements about Canadian, international, student and specialized
    awards.
