Does Big Tech Get Journalism?

Former Yahoo global news anchor Katie Couric gave a revealing interview to ReCode about her time at the tech giant. She argues that big tech companies don’t always understand or believe in journalistic values:

“These tech companies are not media companies… They do not care about stories, about content, about true connection. I think they care about widgets and gadgets and delivery systems, but they aren’t super-interested in the vegetable soup that’s running through the pipes.”

“I think the secret sauce is people who are technologically savvy, but also respect and care about storytelling,” Couric added. “The company that combines those two things is gonna win the day. I haven’t really found it yet.”
