Newsrooms can improve their approach to reporting social problems by comparing local issues to those in other communities.
At EIJ19, a group of panelists touted the benefits of a storytelling method called solutions journalism.
The session, More to the Story: How 15 Local TV Newsrooms Covered Solutions to Community Problems, described solutions journalism as a way to present their audience with a more accurate view of complex problems.
It aims to do that by examining how a response to social issue is or isn’t working.
