“One of the NewsGuild’s biggest strengths is that they understand the journalism business so well. We all want to do the best journalism we can.

But only 17 percent both seek out science news on their own and read science stories at least a few times every week. Moreover, though people believe specialized...

Newsrooms’ well-worn refrain about their audiences — we need to meet them where they are — means something more urgent in the middle of a category five hurricane. Where are the shelters? Where can I get water and food? Where is the storm now? Univision Nathalie Alvaray, Univision’s manager of local digital news, and four other...
