Despite my complaints a few days ago, I do think that the Mercury News is a decent paper by today’s standards, and this morning they reminded me why. They’ve been reviewing 700 appeals of local criminal cases; the results will appear in a five-part series that began with a special section of today’s paper, the main article of which can be found here. (The link may go stale after a week.)

Good stuff; it’s not serving advertisers or power interests, it’s just reporters putting in the time and effort to dig up facts, construct an intelligent narrative around them, and, with a bit of luck, help make the world a better place.
