There’s a great post by Alison Gow detailing how much different the act of creating a news story is in a web 2.0 world (thanks to the Online Journalism Blog for the pointer). It’s a great checklist for journalists and their editors and shows just how much has been added by the recent slew of new online tools. As Alison says:
I had no idea when I started doing this how thin the ‘old’ opportunities for investigating stories would look compared to the tools at our disposal now; it’s quite stark really. It drives home just how important mastering these tools is for journalists as our industry continues to develop and change.
