This year’s Reuters Institute Digital News Report is based on research conducted in 12 countries, surveying over 23,000 people. Key findings include a sharp increase in the use of social media platforms to reach audiences, a surge in the use of mobile for news, a decline in desktop internet and significant growth in video news consumption online.
Ezra Klein, l’ancien “wonderboy” du Washington Post qui a créé le site Vox.com consacré à la contextualisation de l’actualité, défend cette idée dans un éditorial.
Il y explique que les médias d’information vont de plus en plus publier leurs contenus, au-delà de leurs seules plates-formes fixes et mobiles, sur Facebook Instant Articles, Apple News, Snapchat, Facebook Video, Twitter Video, YouTube, Flipboard et d’autres services qui n’existent pas encore à ce jour.
News orgs like Vox, which Klein writes for, will continue to post to their own sites. Search engines index the main site and are, and will continue to be an important source of flow. It also serves as a reliable archive of past work.#
La chute du mur de Berlin, l'investiture de Barack Obama, un concert d'Elvis Presley... Certains moments historiques méritent d'être vus et partagés, gratuitement. Partant du constat, l'Associated Press et British Movietone mettent à disposition près de 550.000 vidéos d'archives vidéos sur Youtube.
Users, from literally around the world, judging by their country codes, signed up to receive daily WhatsApp messages on their phone from our Vatican correspondent, Jim Yardley, as he traveled with the pope in Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay.
WhatsApp is a messaging service owned by Facebook, typically used to chat with one’s family and friends via a smartphone. This was very different. As part of The Times’s experiment, users received photographs taken by Jim and links to his coverage of the trip. (And after some readers mentioned that they wanted more visuals, we sent additional photographs and a link to one of Jim’s mobile videos, a perk derived from direct dialogue between readers and editors.)
The increasing use and sophistication of analytical programmes to help editors understand where the audience is, what it wants to consume and when and what it responds to, is complemented by the arrival of the 'growth team' in newsrooms. But numbers mean nothing without insight. Federica Cherubini explains.
"Since the advent of television in the middle of the 20th century, news has been an essential ingredient in TV programming. Often these newscasts are the most heavily viewed programmes, and by and large they are the main source of information for many people. This is particularly true for news from other countries and regions in the world. This immense significance of TV news has made it an important field in communication research. The article presents a new study that is formed from a multinational project. The project investigated foreign TV news in 17 countries from five regions in the world: Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Egypt, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan and the United States of America. The data of the content analysis in all these countries in 2008 contain over 17,500 news items. The analysis concentrates on ‘news geography’, a term that is used to describe the extent to which the countries of the planet are represented in TV news."
Manuel Carvalho e Manuel Roberto (Imprensa), Mário Galego (Rádio), Pedro Coelho (Televisão), Catarina Santos (Multimédia), António Cotrim (Fotografia) e Vânia Maia (Revelação) foram os vencedores dos Prémios Gazeta 2014. O júri distinguiu com o prémio Gazeta de Mérito o jornalista Fernando Paulouro e atribuiu o prémio da Imprensa Regional ao jornal “Soberania do Povo”.
"One morning in March, a dozen Huffington Post staff members gathered around a glass table in Arianna Huffington’s office. They had been summoned to deliver a progress report to Huffington, the site’s president, editor in chief and co-founder, on a new initiative, What’s Working. It was created to help the site cover solutions, rather than focusing only on the world’s problems — or as Huffington explained in an internal memo in January, to ‘‘start a positive contagion by relentlessly telling the stories of people and communities doing amazing things, overcoming great odds and facing real challenges with perseverance, creativity and grace.’’
The shift to online news is increasing engagement, adding more perspectives, and introducing more witnesses and a wider spectrum of voices to the media industry. Consumers are even proving receptive to long-form journalism in a digital native format, embracing print on the small screens of tablets and smartphones.
"Last week in the new CNBC offices by the San Francisco waterfront, a panel was convened to discuss the future of journalism.
(...) the creator of a journalism/PR connection platform put questions to two journalists united by an old media giant’s new media strategy and a young founder whose feted app may – and this was the premise of the proceedings – "disrupt" the three older men’s industry.
“Social video is now where Twitter was seven years ago,” Galant said at the opening of the conversation. “How will journalists use it?”"
Lecture slides for news literacy at BYU. Based on Center for News Literacy.
"Based on the Stony Brook Model, this course is designed to teach students how to take skillful possession of their power as citizens by becoming perceptive news consumers. Armed with critical-thinking skills, a firm traps of relevant history, plus practical knowledge about the news media, students will learn how to find the reliable information they need to make decisions, take action, or make judgments. At a time when the digital revolution is spawning an unprecedented flood of information and disinformation each day, the course will seek to help students recognize the differences between news and propaganda, news and opinion, bias and fairness, assertion and verification, and evidence and inference. "
I'm going to make some predictions about the future of the media in this piece, and they come with the disclaimer that predictions always come with: They could be entirely wrong. The media is moving fast, and what looks like an unstoppable trend today might seem like a hilarious detour a year from now. (Remember, for instance, when the iPad launched, and apps were going to save journalism? Lol.)
It’s not far fetched to say that David Ho knows a thing or two about mobile and online journalism. He was founding editor of the Wall Street Journal’s iPad edition in 2010, back when tablets were still cutting edge. Recently he was named the Journal’s Executive mobile editor, responsible for developing and managing iPad and iPhone apps as well as Android products. A pioneer of all things mobile journalism, Ho is not shy to describe himself as “the world’s most experienced mobile and tablet news app editor.”

"The Pew Research Center on Tuesday released a 14-page report examining how people use Facebook and Twitter to consume and share news. Most of the findings are in line with conventional wisdom regarding social media’s increasing importance among news consumers — one chart, for example, shows that more people are turning to Facebook and Twitter for news — but the report also draws an interesting distinction between the two social networks.
The report, which is based on a survey of more than 2,000 adults by Pew and the Knight Foundation, says that slightly more Twitter users reported seeing a diverse mix of news topics than Facebook users did. "
Verification Should Be a Partnership With Your Community
If newsrooms want to help stem the spread of misinformation online and get access to better eyewitness media they should embrace community engagement.
Bringing communities into the news process is a powerful way to spread journalistic values, train residents on reporting processes and foster user generated content that is more useful for newsrooms. Newsrooms are well positioned to become participatory journalism laboratories, helping more people navigate, verify and create powerful stories online and via social media."
"Facebook did not set out to dominate the distribution of news. Neither did news organizations choose to let it. But now we are there, with Facebook providing a sizable and growing share of traffic to news — even before the advent of Instant Articles. Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Apple—they all present what we used to think of as our news to our readers. And so it is time to have a serious discussion about the principles and business terms at stake in this new era of distributed journalism."
Investigative journalists struggling to uphold their ethical commitment to protect their sources in the digital era are changing their practices significantly as the Snowden effect takes hold in our newsrooms. For many journalists, “going back to analogue basics” is the new normal when dealing with confidential sources. Julie Posetti examines the evolving issues as they emerged during recent interviews with over two dozen leading editors, investigative journalists and media lawyers.
"When a story does well on Facebook or Twitter, it’s become natural in a newsroom to fist-pump: Yeah! Thousands of shares, hundreds of comments!
It feels like a victory to us, because journalists are the most social-media savvy profession out there (other than whatever you call the cottage industry that works for Kim Kardashian). We use Twitter as a news feed, Facebook to judge virality.
But while these platforms are indispensable to us as newsgatherers and as distributors, they also have their limits. "
