Introduction

Information has traditionally been the lifeblood of any newsroom. At the micro level of reporting, information is the reporter’s raw material. At the macro level of newsroom management, editors will increasingly need to know how to manage information as well as people. This book looks at the information management tools and processes that have become available to help journalists and media executives deal with information. It attempts to answer some of the pressing issues that news organizations face as they move from operating in the industrial age to succeeding in the information or knowledge age. Along the way, this book considers the possibilities for better journalism and better editorial management.
