10 Commandments for Journalists

Should we sacrifice the good reporter for the editor, the investigator for the manager and the newshound for the head of audience development? Colombian reporter Ginna Morelo penned these 10 Commandments of the Journalist to remind us what we shouldn't sacrifice as journalists in this ever-evolving industry.

Les Jours' Obsessions

“Synopsis,” “soundtrack,” “episode,” “mood”… This is the language used daily within the Parisian offices of Les Jours. But don’t let its vocabulary fool you: While the three-year old media company borrows the codes of TV fiction producers, it actually runs a hard-hitting investigative news site. Olivier Holmey writes for GIJN on Les Jours' idea to serialize the news, breaking stories down into nail-biting episode after episode for readers.

A Moving Forum in Central America 

Art has the power to touch others in a more direct and at times disturbing ways when journalism fails to do so. This caused GIJN's Spanish Editor Catalina Lobo-Guerrero to ponder: Have we become so obsessed with data and facts that we've forgotten to tell moving stories with characters? In this piece, she recaps the uncomfortable questions and needed conversations that occurred at ForoCAP, the Central American Journalism Forum.
