This in-depth study shows extensive factual evidence on how the news experience has become more portable, personalized and participatory. A must-read for anyone interested in the future of news.

This article seems to indicate some quality journalism. And while it's not the most interesting or original journalistic piece, it does run through the recently released survey and manages to hit on the main points.

Interesting topic. I guess I've come to expect such a thing in our tech-infused world.
