1. TIME Person of the Year: The Ebola Fighters (TIME)

Over the past year, we saw a number of remarkable people do remarkable things. As TIME’s person of the year, the Ebola Fighters are risking everything in their pursuit to control the deadly virus.

An outbreak that has spanned the globe, it has also changed how we report on it.   Reporters who were once vulnerable and uneducated on the risks now work under new protocol created on the fly. It’s an evolution in journalism that has been fascinating to watch.

2. Revolt at the New New Republic (The New York Times)

Some things are still sacred. That’s how a number of the journalists at The New Republic feel as shown by last week’s events.

After being purchased in 2012 by Facebook founder Chris Hughes, the initial plan was to preserve The New Republic’s tradition. Minor changes created a feeling of restoration the staff was eager to be a part of.

Then, in a drastic change of events, Hughes began a major overhaul, forcing out a beloved editor and moving toward a more digital approach. This has led to a walkout and a number of resignations.

3. How Graphic Writing Distorted the Focus of the Rolling Stone Rape Story (Poynter)

The Rolling Stone rape story has garnered national attention. Unfortunately, it has been for all the wrong reasons. An attempt to shed light on sexual abuse, it has highlighted a number of journalism miscues as the story continues to unravel.
