    INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM
    (xx)Alternative journalism: from slur to Pulitzer(xx)
    A week after ProPublica accepts one of journalism's top prizes for a
    story funded by foundations and universities, Cecil Rosner examines the
    growing trend of non-profit, non-partisan investigative journalism. Will
    it be the saviour the industry needs?

    STUDENT'S LOUNGE
    (xx)How to save (censored) journalism(xx)
    Iran's media censorship inspired a class of Canadian journalism students
    to create Tehran-to.ca: a multimedia news portal that embraces social
    media and digital content and covers post-election Iran, Jenny Vaughan
    writes.

    INNOVATION
    (xx)The Beta Age of magazines(xx)
    Some magazine fans may feel like their favorite publications are
    dissolving into fragments of their former selves, writes Susan Currie
    Sivek. But a new report on the future of magazines suggests that the
    future for both print and digital magazines will be strong.

    THE BUSINESS OF JOURNALISM
    (xx)On the eve of destruction(xx)
    In the mind of John Stackhouse, the Globe of the future could involve
    tearing down much of what readers value most. Will it mean brighter days
    or trigger an unmitigated disaster? Matthew Halliday investigates.
