Computing the News

Sylvain Parasie

Computing the News examines how data journalists and news organizations have navigated the tensions between traditional journalistic values and new technologies. Sylvain Parasie draws on extensive fieldwork in the United States and France, including interviews with journalists and data scientists as well as a behind-the-scenes look at several acclaimed projects in both countries. He argues that fulfilling the promise of data journalism requires the renewal of journalistic standards and ethics. Offering an in-depth analysis of how computing has become part of the daily practices of journalists, this book proposes ways for journalism to evolve in order to serve democratic societies.
