We Need a New Era of Digital Journalism

The survival of quality news calls for a new approach to writing
and reporting. Inspiration could come from blogging and magazine
storytelling and also bring back memories of the 70s new journalism
News reporting is aging badly. Legacy newsrooms style books look stuck in a last century formalism (I was tempted to write "formalin").
Take a newspaper, print or online. When it comes news reporting, you
see the same old structure dating back to the Fifties or even earlier.
