A ray of hope

There’s good news for journalism this morning: An exciting new project out of the Center for Investigative Reporting to “to produce in-depth multimedia journalism specific to California and to engage the public on issues of critical importance to the state.”

I like the sounds of it, not just because it will give journalists jobs, but also because the project sounds like exactly the sort of innovation that we need: in-depth, connect-the-dots, multimedia journalism that uses the best tools available to engage citizens and hold the government accountable.

When everything else is being chopped up for feeds and tweets, we need now more than ever projects that strive for context and depth over immediacy and ubiquity.
