explainer.net

explainer.net | Top sites for journalists | Scoop.it
The Studio 20 Building a Better Explainer Project was launched in November 2010 by Professor Jay Rosen’s graduate journalism class, in partnership with the non-profit investigative newsroom, ProPublica.

The project will experiment with the form of “the explainer,” a genre in journalism that provides the essential background knowledge necessary to follow events in the news.

Explainer.Net is the public face of this project, where we will share findings and promote quality work in the rapidly evolving industry of explanation, both inside and out of journalism.

Pressthink

Pressthink | Top sites for journalists | Scoop.it
According to the author, Jay Rosen, "I call this blog PressThink because that’s the kind of work I do. The title points to forms of thought that identify “journalism” to itself— but also to the habit of not thinking about certain things. The subatomic force that holds the pack of reporters together as they swarm around a story, there’s an example of pressthink. Without it there could be no pack; the pieces would come flying apart. There is a strange energy there, holding smart people to dumb practices."
