Joe Strupp joins Media Matters

Former Editor & Publisher staff writer and senior editor Joe Strupp has joined Media Matters for America  as it first investigative reporter. He has also launched a blog called Strupp for Media Matters.
Media Matters for America is a web-based, not-for-profit, research and information centre dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analysing, and correcting what it describes as "conservative misinformation in the U.S. media".
Strupp has been contributing to E&P in Exile, set up with former E&P editor Greg Mitchell after the magazine was taken over by a new owner in December.
Strupp has an interesting blog post yesterday on how the Pentagon says the Oscar-winning success of "The Hurt Locker," was a testament to the positive aspects of embedding journalists. The film's award for best original screenplay went to Mark Boal -- a reporter who was embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq in 2004.
