Examples of interactive journalism – Week 8
To see all posts in the “Examples” series, view the category “Examples.”
Drones have been in the news a lot lately. These unmanned military aircraft that drop bombs have some mystery surrounding them — and this interactive graphic from ProPublica (a well-respected non-profit journalism organization) shows how conflicting information has created a cloud of uncertainty around drones. When you mouse over the bars below the timeline, you see conflicting quotations from various news organizations, such as CNN, The New York Times and Reuters. I also like the text at the right (not shown below), where you click a heading and the graph re-sorts itself to support that assertion.
