Our series, 'Sowing Hope,' done in partnership with the new Center for California Health Care Journalism, has gotten some attention. http://www.mercedsunstar.com/sowinghope/ Below are accounts in three widely read journalism Web sites about it. When I wrote about it in my Saturday column the week before it ran, some of our smarter commenters expressed reservations that such a collaboration might dilute our objectivity or otherwise jeopardize the Sun-Star's independence. If you read the series, I think you saw that the partnership produced first-rate journalism--stories I think that could appear on the front pages and Web sites of any newspaper in America. The new news is that we're gonna do it again with the center. We look forward to it and hope you do too. Stay tuned...
