These are the stories we’re watching this week. Here is your Weekly Wire:

  • Kathy English, the Star’s public editor, wants your questions on how the paper functions. Journalists, she wrote in a column published Friday, can’t assume that readers “understand what seems to journalists to be the basics of journalism.” She cites a segment by CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter last February on the U.S’s media literacy and how journalists need to “do a better job of showing our work.” Feel free to drop English a line at publiced@thestar.ca with the subject line “Media Literacy.”
