Reading resources on entrepreneurial journalism

These are some recommended resources on entrepreneurial journalism. Students choosing the project option of contributing to the class blog can do blog posts about any of these resources. You can write commentaries about posts on these blogs or reports or about a book or a chapter or section of a book. You also are welcome to blog about other resources. I will add some links here during the semester.
