The Daily Glob – from the Society of Environmental Journalists

The Society of Environmental Journalists – to which I belong – recently launched a website dedicated entirely to coverage of the tragedy unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s an excellent resource for anyone wanting to follow the story. The following is quoted from an email from Chris Rigel, the SEJ’s Director of Programs and Operations.

Keep Up With Gulf Spill News on SEJ’s New Daily Glob

The story of the tragic Gulf oil spill is getting bigger every day. Keeping up with hourly breaking news, and the spill’s causes and consequences, can be overwhelming both to journalists and the general public. The Society of Environmental Journalists has launched a new tracking blog to help you follow the Gulf spill story: The Daily Glob — online at http://dailyglob.sej.org.

The site links to an array of the best information sources about the spill and related topics — ranging from the Coast Guard’s spill news page, to lists of university spill experts, to the Times-Picayune’s
spill news portal. It also collects on an hour-by-hour basis, links to the hottest breaking spill news stories from all kinds of media — offering one-stop shopping for all the top stories.

The array of news tools will help reporters find and enrich stories. They include mapping tools, infographics, photo and video resources, background information, experts’ phone numbers, Congressional hearings, and more.
