Journatic, and the troubling questions of outsourced local news

The fake byline thing may have been wrong, but what are the ethics, and realities, of using non-local staff to churn out cheap local journalism? Are newspapers going to be forced to do it for economic reasons?

About Community Media Lab

About Community Media Lab | Hyperlocal and Local Media | Scoop.it

Heritage Media-West, part of the Michigan cluster of Journal Register Co. publications, has selected Ypsilanti, home of Eastern Michigan University, for a Community Media Lab. We have seen a hunger  in this community for local news, and there is a large student population and academic community interested in learning and gaining hands-on experience, as well as numerous volunteers and nonprofit groups interested in sharing local news and being involved in the community.

We feel the community has been underserved by the media since the closing of its only daily newspaper decades ago. A Community Media Lab in Ypsilanti would provide a learning-based and collaborative environment, as well as a vehicle for the community to document and chronicle the important events that will shape its history, while sharing community news and diverse voices. The Community Media Lab also will provide a talent pool for Heritage Media to draw on to further our mission of bringing news and information on a variety of platforms to our audience at Heritage.com, while engaging them and including them in the process.

Local news crisis: look what journalists who know their patch can achieve

Local news crisis: look what journalists who know their patch can achieve | Hyperlocal and Local Media | Scoop.it

Many journalists in the local media remain serious about their scrutinising role. They know they are there to challenge what they are told. They know deadlines or staff shortages often require them to simply and quickly attribute views from all sides, however distorting that might be.

 

Yet there remains much scope for local newspaper journalists to challenge, to comment, to criticise. The good news is that the internet offers far more space for than was ever possible in print.

Lonely Planet meets Layar: bridging the print-digital divide – Lonely Planet blog

Lonely Planet meets Layar: bridging the print-digital divide – Lonely Planet blog | Hyperlocal and Local Media | Scoop.it

Once a book is printed, it’s printed – nothing changes without a reprint. But  what if you could add contextual digital content to enhance the book with  real-time information on the fly?

We’re experimenting with just that in partnership with Layar, a free  augmented reality app available on Apple  iOS and Android  devices. To start, we’ve enhanced all 42 Lonely Planet European city guidebooks  (city guides, pocket city guides and Discover city guides) to work with the  Layar app. Simply by scanning the cover through the app, travellers can enjoy  live weather feeds, exclusive videos and photos, transport planners, activity  ideas and hundreds of bookable hotel and tour listings – all for free. All you  need is a book and a phone.
