In the old days, not long ago, journalists found out what happened and then reported it. But digitalization has changed this fundamentally. Not only is there less time to do the research but also other actors are weighing in with their own take of what’s happening. However, digitalization also offers new tools to make reporting more thorough: Artificial intelligence could help journalists find credible sources and integrate their reader’s expertise.
