A while ago I posted this twitpic of a rough diagram I crudely drew in a free online paint program.
I didn’t get any comment back at the time, but as people do with charts, feel I now need to labour the point.
What a good journalist can do is take all ‘matter‘ within their beat, and interpret and communicate it succinctly to an audience. Sounds simple, but it can be bloody hard and quite scientific. Without the journalist, you have all the universe at your disposal but no tool to manage it. Yes, I may be overestimating their role but am I talking about ‘good’ journalists here. Or as they’ve started to be known online as – ‘content curators‘.
BTW, it’s always worth checking out the definition of the word ‘zeitgeist’ to get further comprehension – see here.
Thoughts? Let’s kick off a discussion (someone please leave a charity comment now).
