Journalism

Data journalism is exactly what it sounds like, journalists using data to enhance their stories. Graphs or infographics in a news story are a couple examples of using data to tell a story. Data is a great source for journalists to use because it lends credibility to sources and can help explain complex topics to the public in a visual way.
