In my 10 months as publisher of The Dallas Morning News, my team and I have spent many hours listening to readers to make sure we understand what our community wants from us. Along with Editor Mike Wilson and other senior leaders, I met with heads of universities, health care leaders, CEOs of our region's top companies, religious leaders, arts leaders, some of our greatest philanthropic stewards, and most important, our subscribers.We asked three questions: What do you want us to cover? What do you value most about our coverage? Where can we improve? Once we asked, the hour passed quickly as the feedback was vast and helpful.We also convened focus groups, surveyed 1,862 print and digital readers and pored over tens of thousands of data points that show us what you read digitally.All of this work was aimed at helping us understand how to best serve you. Everyone knows local journalism is a tough business; just the other day, we reported that we laid off 43 people across The Dallas … [Read more...] about We hear you, and we’re making changes to your Dallas Morning News

Thomas Beaumont and Meg Kinnard Associated Press Published 10:51 AM EST Dec 12, 2018 Former Vice President Joe Biden is wrapping up a busy stretch of events this week before stepping out of the public eye to hold family deliberations over the holidays on whether to launch another campaign for president, according to multiple people familiar with his thinking. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because Biden was still weighing his options. With his name recognition and strong connections to Democratic power brokers across the country, Biden would likely enter a presidential contest a top-tier candidate, if not the front-runner.

Carlos Monarrez Detroit Free Press Published 3:13 PM EST Dec 8, 2018 The Detroit Lions have finished the NFL season in second place! No, not second place in the NFL standings. Or the NFC standings. Or the NFC North standings. But it is in a meaningful category: The NFL’s most productive rookie class this year. So yes, there’s hope for your Lions after all.

The Lions only finished behind the champion Cleveland Browns. (Disclaimer: People like me, who write about the NFL, look for any and all opportunities to use the phrase “champion Cleveland Browns”). The Browns’ success largely hinged on Baker Mayfield, who is PFF’s 14th-highest-graded quarterback this season. But the Lions had a very strong showing. Da’Shawn Hand led the way. He ranks 12th out of 125 interior … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions’ rookie class ranks second in the NFL. Who knew?
