In Reading the Vanishing Newspaper, Tim Porter discusses an important finding of a new book by Phillip Meyer, The Vanishing Newspaper:

Today's journalists, already the most educated crop of reporters and editors ever, need more ongoing education so they can interview with sophistication, research with understanding and report with credibility, but when it's time to write Meyer suggests they shed the sheepskins and scribble their stories at a sixth- to eighth-grade level, a range he identifies as the sweet spot of newspaper readability.

That's something I really have to be aware, even in our rarified space.
