I've been working on what the media says about criminology - rather than crime or criminal justice - and trying to relate that to debates about the need for a public sociology and criminology.
I believe that whilst the media has many ills it can't be blamed for everything. 'ologists need to get their hands dirty and do some journalism. The internet is the forum for such journalism as journals are too fussy and take two years to publish.
I intend to post short items of interest but also some longer journal length articles to spark debate or be a resource to colleagues, students or those who stumble across this stuff.
I have a website at www.groombridges.freeserve.co.uk but it's not performing well at the moment so feel that blogging may be the answer.
