CAMERA on CJR/Navasky

I just learned that CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America) has a blog, Snapshots. And Snapshots is covering the CJR/Navasky story in a post entitled "Blogosphere Keeps MSM Accountable." A snippet:
Presumably, that means CJR encourages transparency in the media. Yet clearly it seems to be the blogosphere that watches the MSM and its watchdogs, including CJR.
Go read it all.

For those not familiar with CAMERA, here is its self-description:
Founded in 1982, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America is a media-monitoring, research and membership organization devoted to promoting accurate and balanced coverage of Israel and the Middle East. CAMERA fosters rigorous reporting, while educating news consumers about Middle East issues and the role of the media. Because public opinion ultimately shapes public policy, distorted news coverage that misleads the public can be detrimental to sound policymaking. A non-partisan organization, CAMERA takes no position with regard to American or Israeli political issues or with regard to ultimate solutions to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
