Columbia Journalism Review has put out a good issue. In particular I recommend the piece on the L.A. Times. There is interesting competition between the two cities, New York and Los Angeles, and the two papers, the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.
They also ran two interesting profiles. One was on Jonah Goldberg, NRO editor, (it is only in the print edition—but look in up anyway) and the other was on Christopher Hitchens, editor for The Nation and a thoughtful socialist writer.
