On PBS MediaShift, Newton and Wirz share 8 digital tools journalists should try

I saw this link come across the JEA Listserv yesterday from Peggy Gregory and clicked through. It’s a nice piece authored by Eric Newton on PBS MediaShift that talks about some of digital tools journalists should be using for accountability journalism. It actually touches on more than eight because he mentions, as he puts it, a few “golden oldies” ranging from Document Cloud to Timeline JS. For his list of eight though, he pulled on the expertise of Ben Wirz. You can check out their list in the article on PBS MediaShift here: 8 Digital Tools Every Journalist Should Try
