In a world of “alternative facts” and “post-truth” politics, producing public-interest journalism is more important than ever — but also more complex. This book examines how journalism is evolving to meet the demands of the digital media ecosystem, where lies often spread faster than truth, and where modern news consumers increasingly expect journalism to be a conversation, not a lecture.  

"Ed Madison explains why the journalistic methods of verifying and clarifying information can motivate students to learn nearly anything. His well-sourced book is full of the practical exercises and technology tips that can set free the power of journalistic learning. A must-read for anyone who cares about education.”
