The Byline Survey Report, 2011: Who Narrates the World?

The Byline Survey Report, 2011: Who Narrates the World? | Doing Journalism | Scoop.it

"For the last three years, the OpEd Project has conducted a Byline Survey to get a sense of who is getting heard in public discourse. The following are the results of our most recent effort, which evaluated over 7,000 articles in 10 media outlets over a 12 week period from 9/15/11 to 12/7/11. We categorized articles by media type (New, Legacy, College), publication, the author’s status as staff or not staff, and subject. After all of that hard work, I’m glad to say that we have some fascinating results to share with you."

Human Rights Comment : Ethical journalism: self-regulation protects the independence of media

Human Rights Comment : Ethical journalism: self-regulation protects the independence of media | Doing Journalism | Scoop.it

"The media play an enormously important role in the protection of human rights. They expose human rights violations and offer an arena for different voices to be heard in public discourse. However, the power of the media can also be misused to the extent that the very functioning of democracy is threatened."

Theresa May's plan to censor TV shows condemned by Tory cabinet colleague

Former culture secretary Sajid Javid told prime minister he was unable to support home secretary’s proposals as they infringed freedom of speech
Gary Stevens's insight:

Regulation vs censorship. And will the new culture secretary be similarly vocal in defending freedom of expression? Meanwhile there's that debate about whether there's still a legitimate role for the BBC Trust. All change for British media perhaps?

‘I’ve worked in aggressive media environments before but not this partisan,’ says top aide to Barack Obama who has advised Ed Miliband in the British election
Gary Stevens's insight:

Well, this is surprising: "British conservative print media was not only more powerful than Fox News is in the US but was also far more partisan than the cable news network," Axelrod said.

 

The stats are quite interesting (if disappointing).

A Sad Fact of Life: It's Actually Smart to Be Mean Online | WIRED

A Sad Fact of Life: It's Actually Smart to Be Mean Online | WIRED | Doing Journalism | Scoop.it
I'm generally upbeat on Twitter. Many of my posts are enthusiastic blurts about science or research in which I use way too many exclamation points!! But I've noticed something: When I post an acerbic or cranky tweet, it gets recirculated far more widely than do my cheerier notes. People like it fine when I'm genial, but when I make a caustic joke or cutting comment? Social media gold. This is pure anecdata, of course. Still, it made me wonder if there was any psychological machinery at work here
