opinion is the new face of journalism
The Globe and Mail is revamping its image. Over the past few weeks, there have been hot topic themes for debate and a variety of interesting columns. From multiculturalism to failing boys, the military to work/life balance, each topic has really got me thinking and I love it.
It’s a mixture between news and opinion. I suppose it’s the changing face of media where objectivity is less common. The lead no longer contains the meat of the story- and the content is more subjective and probing.
I am also really enjoying the Life section. Great articles about fitness, new health studies, relationships and food. I often read the article in print then go online to check out the comments. It’s amazing just how many people share their two cents with the Globe.
There was an article about when a married couple loses interest in each other, statistically speaking, it wasn’t pro marriage or committment.
The diversity among the comments was enlightening. People were thoughtful and honest with their answers. The article sparked a great online conversation to say the least.
