  1. 1. Data journalism after hype @jancibulka
  2. 2. Data journalism as a trend • Hype at Google Search: “data journalism” http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=data%20journalism
  3. 3. Data journalism and newsroom pace • journalist produce few articles per day, #ddj few per (good) month • no time for failures and death ends (way to bigger ones, scientists will tell you) • outcome known on pitch (unbiased data? not really) • gov data obtaining is a long run (no way to throw away crappy ones)
  4. 4. Data journalism and readers • in many times, charts do not helping, only illustrating (know readers how to read it?) • hiding bias and flappy work behind science • can’t interpret without understanding (what correlation 0.53 means for reader?) http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/do-pulitzers-help-newspapers-keep-readers/
