    She's not going to call it the Polgreen Post.

    To reach journalists on their home turf, Dataminr launches a Slack integration

    Journalists are busy. Between Facebook, Twitter, email and — oh, yeah, actual face-to-face interviews — the last thing reporters want to do is check another window.

    Going long(er): The Huffington Post doubles down on longform journalism initiative

    When The Huffington Post was getting ready to launch Highline last year, its editors weren't wringing their hands (publicly) about drawing tons of eyeballs to their stories.
