A blogger defines journalism

Dave Winer:

You can look at journalism as a process that yields a result. It begins with an interest or a question. Are young blacks voting for Hillary? Begin with interviews, find young blacks, ask them. Talk to a few pollsters and sociologists, get expert opinions All the time you’re doing searches to find these people, you may not even have to speak with them, just read what they’ve said on Twitter or their blogs. Then you write it all up, edit it, add some pictures, maybe a video, give it a title, hit Publish. That’s a process and the result it yields. That’s journalism, imho.

Y’know, that’s not bad.
