Journalism isn't just about informing readers, it's also about helping them take action

Journalists need to learn how to do more than just tell readers about news events - they need to understand how to listen as well, and how to help their communities take action on the issues that are of importance to them Most media outlets - both the traditional kind and the digital-first kind - still see themselves primarily as information engines, pulling in data and making sense of it and then telling readers or viewers about it. But there's an equally important part of the job, especially when it comes to local journalism, and that is helping a community do something about the news events they are reading about.

Robin Thicke: 'High and drunk' all last year

"Every day I woke up, I would take a Vicodin to start the day and then I would fill up a water bottle with vodka and drink it before and during my interviews," Thicke said in a deposition transcript made public Monday. Being high and drunk appears to be Thicke's defense in a high-stakes lawsuit filed by Marvin Gaye's family against Thicke, producer Pharrell Williams and hip-hop artist "T.I." Clifford Harris Jr. The lawsuit filed last fall contends Thicke's "Blurred Lines" is an illegal rip-off of Gaye's "Got to Give It Up."
