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):
To support communities to thrive, journalism provides people with the information they need to make the best possible decisions about their lives, their communities, their societies, and their governments.
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.
