n.— «Well, here’s an equation that editors and designers in newsrooms ranging from small dailies in Oregon to major metros in Florida are increasingly turning to: Chart + article = charticle.…Charticles—as defined by Omaha World-Herald Deputy Presentation Editor Josh Crutchmer—are combinations of text, images and graphics that take the place of a full article. But in many newsrooms, the term refers to a bunch of blurbs floating around with no byline, no transitions and—gasp!—no nut graph.» —“Charticle Fever” by Dane Stickney American Journalism Review Oct.-Nov., 2008.
