They get it!

The Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism has some exciting news:

57% of journalists at large newspapers say “web technology offers the potential for greater-than-ever journalism and will be the savior of what we once thought of as newspaper newsrooms.”

Only 4% worry that the demands of the Web might undermine journalistic values, especially accuracy.

Yay! Mindset is everything. Without the right mindset, we journalists can't find our way forward in this new space. This survey shows that journalists are shifting their perspectives and adopting (embracing?) the mindset that is fundamental to find the future of news.

We're on our way!
