Capitol Hill: Who's Pushing What In Online Publishing
An interesting look at legislation, lobbying, and two online /ebook companies, AAP and ACS, from First Street Research Group (the folks from CQ Press, which includes Congressional Quarterly).
Data visualizations like this, plus looks at lobbying and legislative pushes, can make reporters and the public more aware of how things really work and what's really happening.
Too many stories come out of press releases and other invitational kinds of communications with journalists. (There should be a disclosure required for stories generated from such sources.)
