PS. This is probably why you should call it "empirical journalism" rather than "data journalism". It's not about using data for data's sake. It's about figuring out what works. Knowing (& telling readers) when "the data" *isn't* meaningful or reliable is essential to the mission.

Reveal identified hundreds of active-duty and retired law enforcement officers in racist, misogynist and anti-gov Facebook groups. More than 50 departments launched investigations based on their findings. Great reporting, .

Just a random thought while reading a recently launched book: the most important classes I took in high school and college were not about journalism, science, data, or design. They were the philosophy classes. It all derives from that.

My beginning with R workshop materials are available on GitHub. The README file explains how to download the repo to your system. Then explore.R or explore.Rmd files (same info, just different formats) go through much of the workshop.

Comenzando por la banda sonora. La secuencia del primer vuelo con la pieza "Flight" sonando es de una épica difícilmente igualable. Dicho esto, es una peli muy irregular.

I don't see the problem as one of lacking strict roles or boundaries (in fact, I've argued in the past that that's a bad model). Designers should not be "handed" things. They are a fundamental part of the entire process. On the other hand, though, designers must be knowledgeable

El diseño puede mejorar (esos números ocultos por las líneas...) pero estructuralmente no veo problemas. Por qué os llamó la atención?

My guess is that it's a combination of all that, based on a sense that there are no principles whatsoever when representing data, just making it look colorful. I'm basing this on my own "thinking" at the beginning of my career. Just a guess, therefore

And I agree. Otherwise I wouldn't write books, a blog, teach, or design. But I worry anyway.
