Commitment 2: Nurture healthy professional journalists and citizen journalists to work collaboratively to produce reliable local news that promotes healthy civic life. This commitment widens the definition of who is a journalist and recognizes the importance of emotionally and intellectually healthy journalists in The Next Newsroom. Cynics need not apply. Talented reporters and storytellers with multimedia skills or aspirations will be recruited and encouraged to join the project. Those working in The Next Newsroom will be committed not just to the ethics and practices that come with high-level traditional journalistic skills, but committed as well to work with citizen journalists to create content that gives people information they need to make good choices in their lives, to engage with their communities, and not simply become frustrated and lost.
