Journalists under pressure

I’m on a mission to look at how journalism is drowning in too much information. As part of a cohort of 16 journalists I am taking part in the European Journalism Centre’s News Impact Network. We are looking at ways to make our industry more sustainable for the future in the current disruptive landscape.

A welter of push notifications and nudges is stopping us from listening to what’s really important. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I would like to find out what journalists are doing to manage their information, whether through artificial intelligence, machine learning or just by simply by having the guts to ignore stuff.

I would also like to hear from third-party outlets, which provide information to journalists, and industry leaders, in an effort to this address this situation.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey. Your data is absolutely confidential and will not be shared with any third parties.

Thank you,

John Crowley
