While it is provocative, “The Problem With Stories” like this is that it is missing one of the most important goals of journalism: to inform. That’s why it is important “to write stories people will read.”

I admire Jeff’s work at CUNY, especially with community and ethnic media — a sector where it remains relevant because its audiences subscribe to be informed, to read what they need, and to access news that they can use in their daily lives. These are the core values of solutions journalism.

I can’t express how much I appreciate the effort to be critical and form solutions-driven public opinion. Yet there are some areas of today’s American journalism that still work exactly the way they are — and so we don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
