ASBPE Publishes Second Book,
Journalism That Matters

ASBPE's new book Journalism That Matters takes a look at how reporting by business-to-business and association publications has brought about major changes in both government and industry. The book presents 17 case histories from a variety of publications--not only trade magazines and tabloids, but also newsletters, association publications, peer-reviewed journals, and publications like PC World that straddle the border between trade and the consumer media.

Examples of some of the case studies:
  • The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration took action on sloppy chemical warnings after investigation by Daily Report for Executives.

  • Transfer Pricing Report helped the U.S. and Canada countries agree on trans-border tax issues.

  • The U.S. Department of Defense admitted to weaknesses in its computer network after a report by Federal Computer Week.

  • Federal agencies stepped up their verification of job applicants after Government Computer News uncovered egregious resume padding by a top Homeland Security IT official.

  • London-based Legal Business exposed problems with one of the country‚Äôs most important courts, causing the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales to reform the Technology & Construction Court.
The case studies are all by editors who are members of, or have had their work recognized by, ASBPE or Trade Association and Business Publications International (TABPI).
