about the rise of the misinformed using some really interesting data, as well as the threat to freedom of the press
while the publishing side of things is undergoing tremendous changes, so is the journalistic and editorial side. The old concept of creating a package of news was designed for a public that we assumed was uninformed by default, but this is no longer the case.
The public is no longer uninformed. They are misinformed, and that requires an entirely different editorial focus. … Now your focus must be on explaining the news instead.
