I just finished my 3rd Briefing Note of 2019 which I entitled: The lost art of reading, the lost art of writing. Pessimistic? Yes, but that’s the reality I see around. I included notes about Alan Rusbridger’s new book: Breaking News. The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matters Now.
I’ve been a fan of Rusbridger ever since I read Play It Again. An Amateur Against the Impossible. I wrote about it in 2014: What we can learn from a newspaper (and it’s not the news)
I’m running late on my Briefing Notes, and I”ll just blame my book project for that, but it’s no excuse!
