    Hi Suzanne,
    I’ve signed up for the University of Michigan’s 5-course online journalism series, offered through Coursera.org as a so-called specialization.

    It looks good, at least as an introduction to the topic. So far I’ve learned that journalism and science (my training) both use careful, validatable research to discover and communicate objective truth … we need the modifier ‘objective’ these days after the phrase ‘alternative facts’ slipped into the language-in-use dictionary. 🙂

      Daniel,

      Your enthusiasm is much appreciated! I have seen these online MOOCs before and they are indeed a useful introductory tool.

      Objectivity is a guiding principle here at WikiTribune – we always want to fairly represent both sides of the story and attribute all the statements to credible sources. Like you say “alternative facts” are indeed a reality today, so we need to ensure that we do not propagate such misinformation!
