For Two Months, I Got My News From Print Newspapers. Here's What I Learned.

March 8, 2018View for printing

I first got news of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., via an alert on my watch. Even though I had turned off news notifications months ago, the biggest news still somehow finds a way to slip through.

But for much of the next 24 hours after that alert, I heard almost nothing about the shooting.

I was trying to slow-jam the news -- I still wanted to be informed, but was looking to formats that prized depth and accuracy over speed.
