Cultural Journalism in the Nordic Countries | Nordicom

In an era when culture itself has become central to political debates, when boundaries between hard news and soft news, facts and opinion are dissolving, cultural journalism contributes to democratic discourse on vital issues of our time. Cultural journalism is furthermore indicative of journalistic autonomy and specialisation within media organisations, and of the intertwined relationship between the cultural and political public spheres. Nordic cultural journalism in the mainstream media covers more subjects today than ever before, from fine arts to gaming, media industries, and lifestyle issues. At the same time, it harbours debates and reflection on freedom of expression, ethnicity and national identity. This book contributes to an emerging international research agenda on cultural journalism at a time when digitalisation, convergence and globalisation are influencing the character of journalism in multiple ways.

“Cultural journalism matters, and it matters differently by location. This nuanced and thoughtful portrayal of cultural journalism in the Nordic countries performs a double elevation of what has been missing for too long from journalism’s discussion: its stylistic and geographic variety. This book offers a strong set of studies that highlight what cultural journalism in the Nordic countries forces us to consider about all journalism everywhere.”

On Twitter, Trump's first 100 days show a man obsessed with "fake news"—and Twitter

On Twitter, Trump's first 100 days show a man obsessed with "fake news"—and Twitter | Baltimore Alternative Media Network Group | Scoop.it
President Donald Trump’s habit of sharing his unfiltered thoughts online hasn’t let up during the first 100 days of the "Tweeter in Chief’s" administration.

Trump has used the social media platform to attack his enemies and “fake news” as well as promote his television appearances and the “great” meetings he’s having to—in his words—bypass "dishonest media" and speak directly to his base.

As Trump reaches the 100 days milestone Saturday he has published a little over 500 tweets. Newsweek Media Group has used computer code developed by academics around the world to analyze texts to examine the 9,152 words in those missives and figure out what they tell us about his presidency so far.

How to use Facebook Live for journalism and improve user engagement: Lessons from Spanish-language media

How to use Facebook Live for journalism and improve user engagement: Lessons from Spanish-language media | Baltimore Alternative Media Network Group | Scoop.it

"When ranchera singer Pedro Infante died in April 1957, then-nascent Mexican television broadcast his funeral live, with black-and-white images showing a crowd following his funeral procession through the streets of Mexico City. It became a historical television broadcast in that country. Decades later, the mourning for the death of another Mexican popular idol – singer-songwriter Juan Gabriel – was broadcast live last year, although the scope of the images multiplied and transcended borders thanks to many media that broadcast it by Facebook Live. Facebook's live streaming platform emerged in 2015, but was opened to the public in January 2016. News media did not delay getting on board."

The True History of Fake News

The True History of Fake News | Baltimore Alternative Media Network Group | Scoop.it
In the long history of misinformation, the current outbreak of fake news has already secured a special place, with the president’s personal adviser, Kellyanne Conway, going so far as to invent a Kentucky massacre in order to defend a ban on travelers from seven Muslim countries. But the concoction of alternative facts is hardly rare, and the equivalent of today’s poisonous, bite-size texts and tweets can be found in most periods of history, going back to the ancients.

Who Is Willing to Pay for Online Journalistic Content?

"While the overall readership of newspapers is growing as a result of the multiplatform reach, many online media consumers are not offered the surplus value they expect of journalistic content. Since a great deal of journalistic content published on the internet has been free of charge for years, attempting to monetarise this content is now proving complicated. This article considers the motivating factors behind attitudes towards paying for online journalistic content in different population groups. We follow two directions: attitudes towards paying for online news, and obstacles that compromise willingness to pay in different groups. The survey results and trends noticed by media organisations indicate that the public’s readiness to pay for journalistic online content is growing, albeit slowly. Based on the outcomes of various interviews we can conclude that the expectation of exclusive quality and web distinctive content are the two main reasons behind willingness to pay for online journalistic content, however, it is difficult to outline particular preference groups based on cultural, demographic, or socio-economic characteristics. This seems to be the result of audience fragmentation—the reasons behind willingness to pay for online journalistic content are hidden in the interests and preferences of small audience groups."

How Participatory Journalism Turns News Consumers into Collaborators

How Participatory Journalism Turns News Consumers into Collaborators | Baltimore Alternative Media Network Group | Scoop.it
Brandel suggests that inviting readers to ask questions yields more journalistic benefits than asking them to leave feedback in a comments section after an article is published. “Questions are a more neutral format where stories can start from,” she says. They can also lead to more original content, pushing journalists to pursue story ideas they wouldn’t have thought of on their own. Giving audiences a seat at the editorial table, as Brandel puts it, also makes them feel more invested and more likely to share stories, increasing traffic and brand awareness for news organizations. She calls it “public-powered journalism.” With public-powered journalism, professionals continue to do the good work they’ve always done—reporting, verifying, and synthesizing complex information—but audiences are regarded not only as recipients but as resources to inspire and inform the work they do.

How Western civilisation could collapse

How Western civilisation could collapse | Baltimore Alternative Media Network Group | Scoop.it
The political economist Benjamin Friedman once compared modern Western society to a stable bicycle whose wheels are kept spinning by economic growth. Should that forward-propelling motion slow or cease, the pillars that define our society – democracy, individual liberties, social tolerance and more – would begin to teeter. Our world would become an increasingly ugly place, one defined by a scramble over limited resources and a rejection of anyone outside of our immediate group. Should we find no way to get the wheels back in motion, we’d eventually face total societal collapse.

Highlights and lowlights of journalism innovation in 2015

Highlights and lowlights of journalism innovation in 2015 | Baltimore Alternative Media Network Group | Scoop.it
Much has happened to advance storytelling. One of the most important, in my view, is that we don’t hear the phrase “digital first” as often as we did in 2014.  It is more about “the story first” now.  Concern about platforms has become secondary. The story as protagonist is where it’s at and should continue to be.  Those who populate newsrooms globally are getting the idea: we are in the storytelling business and we now have more platforms than ever to tell those stories. Amen to that, but I hope 2016 will be a year to concentrate on the need for innovative and creative storytelling techniques.

In France, La Poste is a bank, an MVNO, a delivery service (by drone) & an IoT Network | Baltimore Alternative Media Network Group | Scoop.it
Whenever I speak with someone about mail, the post office (in France or around the world), or delivery in general, I like to point out that the Stamp, the main revenue source for most national Post Offices (USPS, La Poste, Deutsche Post, etc.) was invented in the 19th century, and that it likely won’t exist by the end of this century. While the United States Post Office struggles –  some predict that they will be acquired by Amazon this year - La Poste has been working to constantly reinvent itself, leveraging its relationship with households. They are a bank (think: loan for your home), a mobile provider (think: family plan), and they even launched their own secure login API that allows users to connect with their Social Security Number safely (an alternative to Facebook).
