What Journalism Can Learn from Science, from a recorded A session at SXSW Interactive 2012
Today on the Digital Divide we'll hear a talk on What Journalism Can Learn from Science, from a recorded A session at SXSW Interactive 2012. Today's talk will feature Gideon Lichfield, Media Editor for The Economist and Matt Thompson, Editorial Manager at NPR.
The scientific method revolutionized the world of truth-seeking. Yet journalism - which, like science, seeks truth - is far less rigorous. We’ll walk through why this gap has led to record levels of distrust in journalism, and why journalism that’s replicable, trackable, and reviewable can help to restore that trust.
