Redesigning News

by Kevin Makice

Designer Andy Rutledge offered a detailed critique of modern news websites:

Digital news is broken. Actually, news itself is broken. Almost all news organizations have abandoned reporting in favor of editorial; have cultivated reader opinion in place of responsibility; and have traded ethical standards for misdirection and whatever consensus defines as forgivable. And this is before you even lay eyes on what passes for news design on a monitor or device screen these days.

He also provides some mocks of ways in which the New York Times could improve their own efforts.
