The role of long-form journalism in a short-attention span society
A Rolling Stone/Long Reads panel discussed it this week. “A great story is a great story,” said Rolling Stone managing editor Will Dana. “The platform matters but it’s not the most important thing. The important thing is the story can’t be bland and it can’t suck. If something is great, people will want to read it, and they’ll read it whether it’s on the Web or in the magazine.” || Joe Pompeo also covered the event.
