As I write this, my colleagues and I at GLOBALGIRLMEDIA have just wrapped an invigorating, six-month multimedia civic engagement project which involv...
Though the exact beginning point of journalism can be debated, one aspect of the field that remains a constant is the continuous evolution of methodology and process. What is considered news? How are stories shared? What makes reporting ethical or unethical? These are just a few of the important questions that have been refined over time.
Rather than following headlines and trends, we should all do what Grandma recommended--everything in moderation. Especially consumption of new studies. But not sugar. Sugar, we now know according to the new JAMA paper, is bad news.
