Take a look and let me know if I left anything important out. I feel like there are probably a couple more out there -- Poynter, Romenesko? -- but can't find or remember them and the caffeine is starting to wear off.

Hi Alexander,
Definitely include Holly Yettick, who received her doctorate from the University of Colorado for a study she did on how journalists cover education research.

Holly is a former Rocky Mountain News reporter.

Here's an article based on her work. http://www.aaup.org/article/media-think-tanks-and-educational-research#.UtXCP7RdAS0
