I’m interested in revisiting our approach to the relationship between facts, emotion and opinion in reporting & commentary. It seems there’s a significant portion of the public that doesn’t care about facts in the way they’re conventionally understood by media. So how can we make the facts matter to that audience? What are the reporting approaches, writing/broadcast styles, social media channels, visuals etc that will connect with an audience that is not interested in media credibility as conventionally understood?
See this Twitter thread for what I’m getting at: https://twitter.com/awsamuel/status/825240515146690560
