Richard Addis, best known in our neck of the woods as the former editor in chief of the Globe and Mail, but longer known as a U.K. journalist of significance, has posted five reasons for journalists to be cheerful. He'll elaborate, I'll condense:
1. There's a growing public demand for good journalism.
2. Owners will need to support good journalism.
3. It's an open field on who can create good journalism.
4. Attractive populism is a real possibility for good journalism.
5. Print has a future.
