My colleague Lisa Williams speaks of narrow comprehensiveness— “everything about something.” Keep that image in mind.
When people entirely new to it ask me what’s the best way to get going in journalism — if you are starting as an outsider, with no credentials or experience — I always give the same advice, and I know other people give this advice too. It’s obvious enough. Start a niche news service on a subject some people care a lot about.
