As part of our Can Technology Reboot Journalism? event, we hear the thoughts and experiences of Paul Gallagher, who is digital innovations editor at Reach plc, formerly Trinity Mirror, which is the UK’s largest news publisher. (If you want to watch a version of this podcast and see Paul's slides, visit https://youtu.be/3oj4hX_EoQM) For much of the last 20 years, technology has been viewed with suspicion, maybe even as the enemy by journalists who didn’t like seeing their traditional methods and business models disrupted, even destroyed. Are we entering a new phase now, where we’re beginning to see technology as an enabler, that can not only help us solve problems like combatting the scourge of fake news, but empower us to do even better journalism? * This podcast is brought to you by The Civic Journalism Lab, a forum for professional, student and community journalists in the north east of England to meet, learn and collaborate. It’s supported by Newcastle University and by BBC North East & Cumbria. Follow us on Twitter: @CivicJLab
