Short Description: 
Another day, another gun massacre in America.

Twelve people are dead in suburban Colorado, shot while at the movies. What has followed has been an almost rote recitation of the now-standard script for such affairs: Shock, horror, fear, anger, sadness, expressions of sympathy and solidarity with victims and their families, public calls for us to come together as a nation and not bring "politics" into this upwelling of communal grief. Speculation as to how many lives might have been saved if everyone in the theater had been packing.

What Journalism Can Learn from Science, from a recorded A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Today on the Digital Divide we'll hear a talk on What Journalism Can Learn from Science, from a recorded A session at SXSW Interactive 2012. Today's talk will feature Gideon Lichfield, Media Editor for The Economist and Matt Thompson, Editorial Manager at NPR.

The scientific method revolutionized the world of truth-seeking. Yet journalism - which, like science, seeks truth - is far less rigorous. We’ll walk through why this gap has led to record levels of distrust in journalism, and why journalism that’s replicable, trackable, and reviewable can help to restore that trust.
