My inner journalist has come out this week. I’ve been doing a deep dive in the waters where I first swam professionally – reading and reading and reading about the news business. The topics: new technology initiatives, marketing and business case studies, paid content, mobile news strategy, all kinds of good stuff.
I try to do a weekly roundup of the best articles I’ve been reading, and I usually tuck all topics in together. But this week, there were so many good articles about journalism on the list that I decided they deserved their own home. And so I present… the best journalism articles I’ve read this week. Whether you’re a working journalist, a news junkie, or anyone else who cares about the future of journalism, there’s something here for you:
