Friday Link Roundup: Native Advertising and a ‘Cool’ Button

coolbuttonIt’s been a busy week for breaking and on-going news, so why not try to relax this weekend with a little journalist-focused navel gazing?

1) First of all, if you aren’t already hooked on Last Week Tonight, you should get hooked. Not only is it funny, but he rants often about things we care about, most notably net neutrality.

4 Observations From The Atlantic‘s “100 Fantastic Pieces of Journalism”

Grantland, The Verge, Medium and Slate had a presence on the list, too — an encouraging fact for those of us committed to doing quality writing and reporting online. Friedersdorf also took a moment to applaud Glenn Greenwald and his team for their reporting on the NSA’s mass surveillance.
