Interactive Journalism

This chapter focuses on how interactive journalists work in newsrooms. It explores the work products of these journalists by looking at seven field sites throughout the country and across the world: Al Jazeera English; NPR News Apps; The Guardian; The New York Times; The Wall Street Journal; and The Associated Press's New York and Washington, D.C. bureaus. The chapter shows how these desks and their work is incorporated into the larger newsroom efforts and reveals the time pressures interactive journalists face as well as the ways in which they interact with other members of the newsroom. It also asks whether interactive journalists are producing daily or more project-oriented work, and whether interactive journalists generate their own standalone work or instead pair their efforts with other editorial initiatives. The chapter concludes by discussing the translation issues that arise in the newsroom and the insights about professionalism that we can derive from what is happening inside the interactive journalism newsroom.
