10 Commandments for Journalists

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.

In this piece, she recaps the uncomfortable questions and needed conversations that occurred at ForoCAP, the Central American Journalism Forum.
