5 Things to Know About the U.K. Press Regulation Compromise | DSLR video and Photography | Scoop.it

LONDON - After months of wrangling, Britain's political parties have reached a compromise that will establish a new press regulator based on suggestions of the Leveson Inquiry, which was launched in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal.

UnitedByPhotography's insight:

Publishers, such as News Corp.'s News International, as well as the owners of the Telegraph and Daily Mail newspapers, have been opposed to statutory regulation, and it will be interesting to see if they interpret the final compromise as acceptable or not.

 

All parties have said that victims of press abuse will be big winners. Hacked Off, the non-profit supported by the likes of Hugh Grant, lauded the new royal charter.

Why the Washington Post is smart to try sponsored content, and why others should too

Why the Washington Post is smart to try sponsored content, and why others should too | DSLR video and Photography | Scoop.it
The Washington Post has launched a feature offering advertisers the ability to place sponsored content on its site, and while this form of advertising has come under fire, other media outlets should consider doing the same.
UnitedByPhotography's insight:

The approach taken by some publications such as Forbes — which has a BrandVoice platform that is similar to what the Washington Post is launching — is that marketing or advertising-driven content from brands is given more or less equal prominence to that created by editorial staff, with the appropriate disclaimers.

Newsroom Cutbacks Are Hurting Journalism, Study Shows

Newsroom Cutbacks Are Hurting Journalism, Study Shows | DSLR video and Photography | Scoop.it
U.S. newsrooms have cut their staffs by about 30% since highs reached in 2000, and journalism is suffering as a result.
UnitedByPhotography's insight:
Fewer Resources = Poorer Quality JournalismThere are now less than 40,000 full-time employees working in news, the lowest since 1978, Pew found.

At the same time, companies and other organizations are seizing opportunities to deliver their messages straight to the public — rather than through the media — with mixed results.

Marco Arment's digital magazine and the paywall vs. sharing problem

Marco Arment's digital magazine and the paywall vs. sharing problem | DSLR video and Photography | Scoop.it
Marco Arment softened the paywall around his iPad-only magazine because his content was not benefiting from the social-sharing effect that the web enables — a microcosm of the dilemma that many other publishers are also facing.
UnitedByPhotography's insight:

When it comes to new-media players worth watching, Marco Arment’s iPad-only publication — known simply as “The Magazine” — is at or near the top of the list, if only because it is a totally new, digital-native media venture that appears toalready be profitable according to its founder.
