What did the media miss in 2007?

Don't miss what the media missed. Catch In the Loop's program page after they run their audio edits & post their photos. And you shouldn't be the only one to catch it, because they're taking a look at what the media missed in 2007:

'Tis the season… for the Year in Review. You know the deal. News shows, newspapers and magazines highlight the big moments of the past year. What was hot, what fizzled, what big events caught the attention of the country. This year, In The Loop turns the tradition on its head with a look at what the media missed in 2007.

*Clears throat* Well that ought to be interesting listening, since I even missed the show's airing last night. There is a nice preview of what is to come, because host Jeff Horwich sat down with Tom Crann to talk about stories the media missed.

Join the open discussion and add your thoughts on what the media didn't cover, or what could have been covered better.

Let the buyer beware! Have you felt the sting of incomplete communication during a business deal? Or maybe everything seemed perfect, but the fine print of a contract held that nickel-and-dime outline which nearly doubled your expected costs. Public Insight Journalism wants to know if you've felt cheated by the fine print:

We sign agreements often to buy a house or car, to sign up for phone or cable service, to get something online. But have you been surprised by the terms of an agreement in the fine print? Tell us more.

It's that time of year when we're all filing into the gym or a temporary theater for a holiday show. Weekend America is looking for you to come forward with your own behind-the-music-or-program-or-cabaret:

The office talent show, the neighborhood caroling posse, the school pageant ... At holiday time we often sing, dance, and dress as shepherds. Did you bloom in the warmth of your audience's adulation, or freeze up like the snowman you'd rather be building? Did your holiday performance change your life or that of someone close to you?

What's your holiday performance story?
