Our top 10 journalism blog posts of 2020

Top 10 journalism blog posts of 2020

Furlough, sped-up news cycles, misinformation and redundancy – 2020 is unlikely to be on any ‘best year in journalism ever’ lists. Despite the challenges, those working in media through the global pandemic since March have provided the public with much-needed information, resources and even entertainment when things have been particularly hard.

Hoping to highlight the work being done by journalists across all sections of the UK media, the ResponseSource blog featured interviews with those finding new revenue streams in publishing, groups supporting those struggling and issues being faced.

Here are our most popular journalism blog posts from this year:

The Freelance Session was one of the groups offering support to freelance journalists highlighted in our association round up earlier in the year. Here, founder Jess Evans took us through the biggest challenges being faced by the sector.

We’d like to end the year with a big thank you to everyone working in the media for all of the hard work that’s been ongoing through all the changes and challenges of this year.

However you’ll be celebrating the festive season, we hope you’ll be taking a well-earned break and recharging – stay safe, and we’ll see you in the New Year.
