About the New Orleans Paper

I heard a NewsHour podcast this morning about how the New Orleans Times Picayune is covering New Orleans after Katrina.

This is what the NewsHour web site says about the story:

"In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, like so many other local institutions in New Orleans, the 169-year-old Times-Picayune has found itself tested in unprecedented ways. The paper now sees itself as having dual roles: to cover the news about the devastation and reconstruction, but also to help heal the city's soul and advocate on its behalf.

"Jeffrey Brown reports on the paper's continuing efforts to report on the story of Hurricane Katrina and the region's slow march toward recovery."

You can hear it in RealAudio or listen through iTunes.
