I finally have a legit personal & professional news announcement, and it doubles as a #DecadeinReview #lookback: I am moving to Philadelphia in the new year to join @PhillyInquirer as a digital producer! 10.5 yrs ago, I had just finished an internship w their health desk. 1/?
@PhillyInquirer A lot has happened since then. My 1st FT #journalism job @bkreporter where I burned shoe rubber cultivating love/appreciation of #localnews in my home borough as a reporter/magazine EIC/digital editor for four years, then @bklyner, #freelancer life and, currently, @flipboard. 2/?

#Mahshahr, the heart of #Iran’s petrochemical industry, is known for something else these days: military vehicles, machine guns, security forces firing on protesters. Officials say people were armed, but the residents tell a different story #Novembert19Protests #localnews
#Iranian officials have accused the country’s protesters of being rioters and terrorists. But, a resident of #Mahshahr tells us, “these are hungry people,” people without work, people who can’t see a future for their children.

Recently, President @HassanRouhani said absolute poverty didn’t exist in #Iran. He should pay a visit to these residents of #Mahshahr, many of whom are veterans from the Iran-Iraq war. “Poor people just have to wait to die,” one of them said.

“Core values of #journalism do not change, but practices must change to reflect current reality.” #trustinmedia #ona18 Cannot assume readers understand what we do, how/why we do it. They don’t. Have to stop priding ourselves on being opaque. #transparency @knightfdn #newsliteracy
@knightfdn “Radical #transparency” means we explain methods, decisions in real time. Not after reaction. 2-way communication. Big problem tho: readers conflate news and opinion stories. And media outlets also conflate it too often. #ona18 #trustinmedia #journalism #fakenews
