@emilybell shared
RT @chrismoranuk: This piece is timely and excellent. Innovation in news cannot be only technical and must embrace and articulate journalistic expertise. This is a challenge to a number of established processes and one which news organisations have to work on https://t.co/rae4U6wMWG https://t.co/5RlkgrVNCx

Journalism Isn't Dying. It's Returning to Its Roots
