Can a YouTube host make it in Cable News?

Can a YouTube host make it in Cable News? | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it
His YouTube channel has developed into an online network of news, progressive opinion, even sports, and as been viewed more than 27 million times with total uploads across the Web topping 386 million. “We beat almost every show on CNN,” he told the crowd at NATPE, with a disclaimer that his shows can be viewed multiple times by the same person over a longer period of time.

Magazines Still Struggling With This Social Media Business

Magazines Still Struggling With This Social Media Business | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it
“We have a whole team of people working on our Twitter feed,” Jim Frederick, managing editor of Time.com and executive editor of Time, said. “There’s an art and science to Twitter.”

Frederick said that while Time holds a “bimonthly steer meeting” with top managers to share ideas for how to approach social media, the Time editorial team “has the final say.”
 
The 150-year-old Atlantic magazine, on the other hand, has just one person in charge of its social media initiatives: Jared Keller, a recent college grad. “I guess they trust my millennial judgment or something,” he said.

How Sam Spratt is finding a niche for illustrations in the text-heavy world of digital journalism

How Sam Spratt is finding a niche for illustrations in the text-heavy world of digital journalism | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it
Sam Spratt is a freelance artist, but thanks to journalists, not a starving one. Since graduating from college in July, the illustrator has done hundreds pieces for Gawker Media, three print covers for Game Informer, and a gigantic tour bus for two renowned photographers. He makes commissioned web-res portraits and sells limited-edition posters, too, showing that, even in an online journalism world that seems oriented to text, “artist” doesn’t have to mean “poor.”

The shakeup at MediaNews: Why it could be the leadup to a massive newspaper consolidation | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it
Stop listening to newspaper people. We have had nearly 15 years to figure out the Web and as an industry we newspaper people are no good at it. No good at it at all. Want to get good at it? Then stop listening to the newspaper people and start listening to the rest of the world. And, I would point out, as we have done at JRC — put the digital people in charge — of everything.

New Yorker web editor: The site is “guided by what’s on paper”

New Yorker web editor: The site is “guided by what’s on paper” | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it
The most telling change, though, is as much about philosophy as it is about design. On the re-launched site, “we put less of the magazine online than we used to,” Eskin says. It’s a choice that will likely become more common as The New Yorker’s fellow outlets make key decisions about paid content. “Especially now that ‘Information wants to be free’ is no longer an article of faith — we wanted to tell our paying subscribers that they can access everything,” he says. “And to tell our non-paying visitors that there’s a lot that they’re missing.”

Designing the Atavist, an App That Rescues Long-form Journalism | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it
Unlike the digitized razzle-dazzle of many competing e-reading experiences, The Atavist was designed for one thing and one thing only: reading. But The Atavist's creators took pains to add digital features into each story that enhance the reading experience in ways that paper never could -- like "smart" timelines that help keep you oriented in the narrative but don't spoil future plot twists, or built-in audio versions read by the authors.

New film, old media

New film, old media | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it
You might say, justifiably, that none of this matters. The movies are only a bit of fun, after all. That's true, but look at it this way: portraying newspapers as in rude health, unaware of the internet, is a bit like portraying the automotive industry as the lifeblood of modern Detroit, or showing war as something fought in large part between battleships and fighter planes. The world has changed irrevocably. You wouldn't stand for it: it's just silly, parallel universe stuff.
