Community is the heart of journalism

When I got two invitations to write about journalism within a week of each other, it inspired to me write a piece that identifies what I believe contributes to journalism that matters. In short, the mission changes by adding some context (in italics):

As a consequence, the practice of journalism becomes more inclusive, engaged and generative. With time, we enjoy the fruits of more meaningful, transparent and trustworthy journalism.
