Slow Journalism

Pin It


Slow Journalism is like peeling the layers of a fresh, local, organic onion. It might be so damn good that it makes you cry.

Like the other Slow movements, we take time to do things properly. Instead of desperately trying to beat Twitter to the punch, we return to the values we all want from journalism – context, analysis and expert opinion - The Slow Journalism Company

Slow journalism is the news analogue to slow food. Slow journalism is about valuing content over speed. Slow journalism is about identifying core issues and finding a way to give audiences information of lasting substance--it's not about posting the latest news clip on a 24/7 deadline to "feed the beast." Slow journalism is about news you can use... to make you a more informed citizen. Slow journalism is activist journalism; it's journalism that tries to enlighten, and perhaps even empower its audience, often by asking that audience to become collaborators. - Susan Moeller



"It is a cultural revolution against the notion that faster is always better. The Slow philosophy is not about doing everything at a snail’s pace. It’s about seeking to do everything at the right speed. Savoring the hours and minutes rather than just counting them. Doing everything as well as possible, instead of as fast as possible. It’s about quality over quantity in everything from work to food to parenting." - Slow Movement
