Reporting on Long Covid Taught Me to Be a Better Journalist

Ed Yong continues to be an inspiration. This is such an important point about the value of journalism: «I had always imagined that the testing ground for my writing was the mind of my reader, who would learn something new or perhaps even change what and how they think. But this one-step model is woefully incomplete because we are a social species. Journalism doesn’t stop with first-generation readers but cascades through their networks. Done well, it can make those networks stronger.»
