Trust in traditional news sources is at an all-time low. Trust in new start-up newsrooms is even lower. Why is this? Craig Newmark (yes, that Craig Newmark) and Kelly McBride of The Poynter Institute last year gathered some of the top thought leaders in journalism to write a new set of Guiding Principles for the 21st Century.
A dozen writers,including Clay Shirky and danah boyd, participated in this effort, to be published in the Spring.
Newmark and McBride will team up to debate these findings, the revelations of the essays, and the implications for journalism and democracy. McBride describes Newmark as a typical nerd, flummoxed by the imperfections of the humans who do journalism. Newmark describes McBride as a good dresser with a suspicious number of social skills. Needless to say, they come at this task of fixing journalism from different places.
