8-12-2011: NewsTrust Baltimore

August 12, 2011 at 7:53 am 1 comment

As newspapers shrink and the internet allows each of us to read only the things we each want to be exposed to, how do you discern what  news  is   high quality? That’s the question that NewsTrust set out to answer when they came to Baltimore early this year to start the NewsTrust Baltimore project.

For six months, through the end of July they identified news articles, posted them online and invited people review the quality of the journalism.

Now the project has wrapped up, and we’ve brought some of its leaders together to tell us what they’ve found.

Fabrice Florin, Executive Director NewsTrust joins us with Mary Hartney, Local Editor for NewsTrust Baltimore.

    Dear Sheilah and Katherine,

    Thank you so much for interviewing us about from NewsTrust Baltimore — and for this wonderful opportunity to share our findings with your community!

    I really enjoyed Sheilah’s thoughtful questions, which made for a much better interview (and I much appreciate that you read our reports ahead of time ;o).

    To follow up on this fine interview, I would like to point your listeners to the reports on our blog, starting with this page:
    http://bmoreblog.newstrust.net/2011/07/observations.html

    Stay tuned for our final report, which will comes out at the end of August, compiling all these reports into a single document.

    Thanks again for the quality of your work and for the important public service you provide in Baltimore — and, of course, for being such great partners throughout our experiment!

    I hope you got as much out of it as we did — and would love to collaborate with you again down the line …

    Best regards,

    Fabrice Florin
    Executive Director, NewsTrust
