One of the biggest things I took away from the appearance by Andrea Wenzel is the idea that solutions journalism can help restore trust in media. This is important because often communities view the media as leaving after getting what they need from you. Solutions journalism can help disband this stigma by staying engaged int he community throughout the process of the project, and continuing to do so after the project is finished.

Another idea that I found to be interesting is that Solutions Journalism can only work when it is community based, and community engaging. I agree with this statement because solutions journalism is important to both journalists, readers, and the community in which the project is based. If the community is not engaged in the project, then it is not solutions journalism.
