Journalism is facing challenges introduced by the network society with strengths and weaknesses. On the one hand, it is the legacy of more than a century and a half that offers multiple evidence of its social utility for receiving trustworthy news, generating knowledge, and achieving a better operation of plural and democratic societies. On the other hand, a loss of credibility, difficulties to show their contribution within a context dominated by confusion and unfounded rumours, and the multiplication of problems to guarantee sustainability of media investing in quality journalistic projects. But journalism is still alive and it remains at the heart of social debates within the present turbulent context. In order to guarantee its continuity in the digital era, characterized by disruptive changes and a communication metamorphosis in various stages, journalism is looking for its reinvention without sacrificing the essentials: telling, explaining and interpreting what is happening in society, using techniques and tools to guarantee veracity.
