AJ+ news site has beenawarded 'General Excellence in Online Journalism' | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"AJ+ is an online news and current events channel run by Al Jazeera Media Network (AJMN). The service is available on its mobile app (iOS and Android), YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter with written content on Medium. An Arabic-language version is under construction and a Spanish-language version is currently live. Work on the channel started in December 2012, shortly after Al Jazeera established an office in San Francisco. The first YouTube channel was created on December 17, 2013, after a year of preparation in response to increasing popularity of online news content among young people. The channel then had a soft launch on June 13, 2014. A full launch followed on September 15, 2014." (in: Wikipedia)

Algorithms Could Save Book Publishing—But Ruin Novels | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"Studying 5,000 book titles published over the last 40 years, Jodie Archers and Matthew L. Jockers have created an algorithm that can predict with 80 percent accuracy which novels will become bestsellers. Traditional book publishers are paying attention to algorithms too — Simon & Schuster hired its first data scientist last year, while Macmillan Publishers acquired digital book publishing platform Pronoun earlier this year largely for its data and analytics capabilities.

How Journalists Can Fight Politicians' War on Truth

How Journalists Can Fight Politicians' War on Truth | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

“Simply calling out lies is not enough,” Dan Gillmor writes on the obligation of debate hosts and journalists alike to call out politicians’ lies. “Once the lie is spoken out loud, even a quick rebuttal — assuming it’s issued on the spot — doesn’t undo all the damage. This is partly because repeating a lie, which is generally part of the debunking process, can reinforce it. Moreover, a phenomenon called confirmation bias leads people who want to believe something to believe it even more after they’ve been shown they’re wrong. So maybe it’s time for journalists who care to try some new, stronger tactics to fight back against the war on truth that Trump and so many others have been waging this year.”

WashPost Makes History: First Paper to Call for Prosecution of Its Own Source (After Accepting Pulitzer)

WashPost Makes History: First Paper to Call for Prosecution of Its Own Source (After Accepting Pulitzer) | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"Three out of the four news organizations that received NSA documents from Edward Snowden have called for the U.S. government to allow Snowden to return with no charges. But the fourth, The Washington Post, instead is calling for the U.S. government to prosecute Snowden on espionage charges. That makes the Post the first newspaper to ever call for the prosecution of one of its sources — and a source for a story that the Post won the Pulitzer Prize for. Glenn Greenwald writes, “[The Post’s editorial board] might want to denounce their own paper and even possibly call for its prosecution for revealing top-secret programs they now are bizarrely claiming should never have been revealed to the public in the first place.”

MCLUHAN AND THE "TORONTO SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION"

MCLUHAN AND THE "TORONTO SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION" | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"How does one recognize a "school" of thought ? And why should one? These are questions that, concerning a truly distinctive and now distinguished intellectual trend originating in Toronto, I have entertained since the death of Marshall McLuhan on the last day of 1980. At the time I was impressed by the fact that Harold Innis, Eric Havelock and McLuhan, the three main scholars who taught that communication systems create definite psychological and social "states", had all been at the university of Toronto. The most significant common thread was that all three had explored different implications of ancient Greek literacy to support their theoretical approach. Even if they had not directly collaborated with each other, they had known each other's work and been inspired by common perceptions. "
