The Economist's "Democracy in America" offers critical commentary on America's "kinetic brand of politics and the policy it produces." The posts on the site are crafted by The Economist's different far-flung correspondents, and the range and breadth of their insights and investigations are quite impressive. Cod fishing in New England? Yes, that's covered here, along with climate change, cyber security, and the "new" political correctness. Visitors can offer their own comments, recommend posts to friends, and take advantage of their RSS feed as well. Each post also contains links to helpful documents, other online resources, and bits of commentary from other media sources. It's a real gem overall, and this site could be used in journalism courses quite effectively.
