Why This Matters

In the rush of reporting, we sometimes forget that our audiences don’t know why a piece of news is important, especially when it comes to events that have been reported episodically.

“Why This Matters” is intended to help you put news events in context and connect them to other events. We’ll help you find previous reporting and background so you can concentrate on what’s new. Look here for previous reporting and the bigger picture.
