It’s quite common to hear people denounce the work my colleagues do as ‘clickbait.’ Too common, in fact. The sensible option, some would argue, would be to ignore it. After all, the facts tell a different story. And I’m going to give sharing the facts…

If there’s one thing journalism doesn’t need going into 2017, it’s another clutch of gongs. For an industry which is constantly facing negative headlines (often understandable, of course), we still do a great job of celebrating our achievements. And if…
