John Paton to news execs: Abandon the gatekeeper model

John Paton to news execs: Abandon the gatekeeper model | Journalism via Curation and Aggregation | Scoop.it

A great argument in favor of the open & social approach the 'old' media industry should be taking, from John Patton, new CEO of MediaNews Group.

Melanie Faizer's insight:

Drawing on outside sources, including social media and user-generated media, also means letting go of the gatekeeper model, a point made in this article. A poll in Time suggests millennials don't aspire to home ownership the way the previous generations did. Obvious economic factors aside, maybe ownership in general has less perceived value in this age of sharing. To that end, there is a diminishing capacity to "own" or control the story and indeed the whole news cycle.

 

Aggregation is one of the activities that will generate stories with many owners and contributors, but no single gatekeeper. This is particularly true once a story is published and has the ability, online, to take on a life of its own.

Steve Buttry outlines the vision and characteristics of what a digital first newsroom, unbolted from print processes, looks like.

Melanie Faizer's insight:

Steve Buttry includes curation in his vision of the new newsroom, one that is "unbolted" from print. In addition, attribution changes such that sources become embedded, linked, clickable, and so on, making a more seamless, but no less credible, news writing experience.

Robots have mastered news writing. Goodbye journalism (Wired UK)

When we asked Clerwall if this could tarnish the overall quality of a piece of journalism and affect the results, he said: "You are right, had I cut them differently maybe the results would have been different.
Melanie Faizer's insight:

Aggregating might be perceived as an automated process -- unoriginal and rote. A robotic process, though, doesn't incorporate imagination and interpretation. As the article suggests, robot news writing is more boring than the stories pulled together by humans.

Zeega - create and share interactive videos | Journalism via Curation and Aggregation | Scoop.it

Zeegas work across all platforms, from iOS to Android to Chrome, Firefox, IE and Safari. A Zeega can play inside Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and other apps.

Melanie Faizer's insight:

Zeega.com is a great example of storytelling through aggregating and curating, and in addition, embedded, automated attribution. It removes much of the burden of copyright. From a storytelling perspective, it has limitless possibilities, but one of the challenges is finding that story worth telling. Some Zeega examples are beautifully executed; too many are (from a journalistic perspective) one-dimensional in their execution and not thought-provoking. We are still new at curating content, and it shows. Curating is another form of narrating: the story still needs a point, a trajectory.
