FBI investigating Russian hack of New York Times reporters, others

FBI investigating Russian hack of New York Times reporters, others | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Hackers thought to be working for Russian intelligence have carried out a series of cyber breaches targeting reporters at the New York Times and other US news organizations, according to US officials briefed on the matter.

The intrusions, detected in recent months, are under investigation by the FBI and other US security agencies. Investigators so far believe that Russian intelligence is likely behind the attacks and that Russian hackers are targeting news organizations as part of a broader series of hacks that also have focused on Democratic Party organizations, the officials said.

Access, Accountability Reporting and Silicon Valley

Access, Accountability Reporting and Silicon Valley | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

“The lines are blurring, in some cases dramatically, between what it means to be a media company and what it means to be a technology firm,” Adrienne LaFrance writes. “The leaders of some websites with robust newsrooms, like BuzzFeed, even refer to themselves as tech companies first, journalism organizations second.” That presents a “profound accountability challenge” for modern journalism, LaFrance writes: “Who is best served by the coverage we have? And is it the coverage we deserve and need?”"

L’info était bidon… mais elle est toujours en ligne sur ton site, coco | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Pour aider les internautes à distinguer le vrai du faux, les médias ont lancé des rubriques de fact checking et passent en revue toute la journée des déclarations politiques, des légendes urbaines croquignolesques ou des reportages de la télé russe -- un exercice aussi sain que sans fin.

Mais que se passe-t-il quand les sites d'actu sont eux-mêmes à l'origine de la diffusion d'une info bidon ? Font-ils preuve de la même exigence envers leurs propres contenus ? Que devienne (...)

Making Mojos: How iPads
Are Enhancing Mobile
Journalism Education

"Journalism students can no longer focus on being just writers or photographers or videographers. They must leave college with a multitude of media skills to have the greatest potential for career success. The development of the iPad and supporting apps has created a “one-stop shop” of journalistic tools that enable students to learn those skills, including note-taking devices, recording devices, research platforms, and word processing. We conducted a yearlong study of beginning journalism students utilizing one-to-one iPads to examine the impact of iPads and journalistically focused apps in a “flipped” journalism classroom environment (where video lectures are homework, and skill development and execution are done in class). Our goal was to identify how the iPad could be used to augment journalistic training and determine whether use of such technology would accelerate and enhance student learning. We found that confidence in the iPad as a journalistic tool and perceptions of journalistic ability increased, as did students’ execution of publishable-quality writing assignments. Qualitative results identified some of the challenges and benefits related to iPad use in a journalism class. Overall, we found that students did utilize the iPad and apps to more quickly create publishable-quality journalism assignments, which included effective reporting and use of multimedia and social media."

Stop feeding the news machine: take time to produce quality journalism | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Inspired by the Slow Food Movement, which aims for quality food, produced in a way that doesn't harm the environment, is accessibly priced, and gives a fair return to its producers, Peter Laufer, an award-winning author, journalist, and broadcaster launched his Slow News Movement – a "healthier approach to journalism," offering the audience a balanced and nutritious news diet.


"Yesterday's News Tomorrow" is what slow news is all about, eliminating the sense of urgency to allow both readers and journalists some valuable time to ruminate.

What We Talk About When Talk About “Media Independence”

What We Talk About When Talk About “Media Independence” | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Media independence is a contested concept that carries different meanings in different contexts. As a normative ideal, independence can be discussed on many levels, and media organisations, journalists, researchers and regulators often invoke the term in contradictory ways. In contemporary European media policy, the conceptual contestation over the meaning of independence has been further reheated by commercial media’s attempts to reframe the distinction between commercial and public service media as a choice between “independent” and “state” media. The digital transformations and the emergence of new media actors and platforms also challenge the meaning and relevance of different conceptions of media independence and dependence. In this article, we discuss the changing uses of the notion of independence in current media policy discourse, including controversies between public service and commercial media, but also other settings where the notion is invoked. We then develop a more fine-tuned understanding of the different dimensions that media independence contains in a contemporary media environment. Finally, we discuss how the relational nature of independence makes it problematic to employ as a normative principle in media policy.

Six Ways Editors Can Innovate (And Do Their Day Job) - European Journalism Observatory - EJO

Six Ways Editors Can Innovate (And Do Their Day Job) - European Journalism Observatory - EJO | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Editors are often so occupied with running the day-to-day news operation they have little time to concentrate on what their organisations should become. Yet news organisations must innovate to stay relevant to their audiences. I asked editors from several British newsrooms how they combine their day job with leading innovation. This is what I learned.

The problem with innovation in the newsroom is not so much a problem of a lack of awareness or ideas, but the lack of the ability to implement an innovative strategy. This follows largely from the fact that the people most crucial for the implementation of strategy, the middle-tier editors, are often too time-strapped and ill-equipped to lead innovation. I know this since I am one of them.

Communication and information rights in European media policy

Communication and information rights in European media policy | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
To make informed choices about matters of societal importance citizens must be informed. This requires universal access and availability of information. It also implies participation in information creation – i.e., being competent to participate in public debate in which political will is formed and expressed, and decision-making happens. This is where the media – together with other public institutions such as education and general public services – are of decisive importance. In this article some recent issues in European media and communication policy will be scrutinized against the principles of citizens’ information and communication rights (ICRs).

Understanding Trump’s Use Of Language

Understanding Trump’s Use Of Language | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

George Lakoff, Professor of Cognitive Linguistics at the University of Berkeley and author of the best-selling book Don't think of an Elephant about political communication:


"Some in the media (Washington Post, Salon, Slate, Think Progress, etc.) have called Trump’s speeches “word salad.” Some commentators have even attributed his language use to “early Alzheimer’s,” citing “erratic behavior” and “little regards for social conventions.” I don’t believe it. I have been repeatedly asked in media interviews about such use of language by Trump. So far as I can tell, he is simply using effective discourse mechanisms to communicate what he wants to communicate to his audience. I have found that he is very careful and very strategic in his use of language. The only way I know to show this is to function as a linguist and cognitive scientist and go through details."

In a small air-conditioned room in Las Vegas, a few miles from the famous Strip, a bank of monitors show events unfolding in real time on social media around the world.

Giant spikes shoot from a spinning globe, indicating areas of unusually high social media activity. Another screen shows all the fires breaking out around the world, detected using image recognition technology.

Think Millennials and news, and you think Vice Media, Buzzfeed, Mic, Ozy, Vox Media, Fusion and Vocativ. These are the companies, in just a few years, which have laid claim to the new turf. At the same time, almost every legacy news company is setting strategy with its use of Facebook particularly, and social and messaging media more generally, to hunt Millennials as well.

O ensino de jornalismo como um encontro e não como um discurso

O ensino de jornalismo como um encontro e não como um discurso | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
A formação do jornalista é uma discussão sempre presente no universo profissional e acadêmico, seja nos congressos, nas salas de aula ou nas redações. Dentre as principais questões, revelam-se a defesa da ética, da cidadania e do interesse público como características intrínsecas ao fazer jornalístico, assim como o alerta e a adaptação diante das constantes transformações tecnológicas e dos modelos de gerir e produzir conteúdos. Uma missão árdua para os professores dos cursos de comunicação, especialmente os de jornalismo, que, da mesma forma, necessitam estar preparados para desafios como as mudanças curriculares, os passaralhos, a ausência de investimento nas faculdades, o declínio dos impressos (entre eles, os jornais-laboratórios), entre outros fatores que interferem na profissão.

The Case Against the Media, by the Media

The Case Against the Media, by the Media | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
In the media market, like any market, that loyalty is earned, one presumes, by giving an audience what it wants. But what does it want? Is the media there to excite or to inform? To challenge or to reassure? To be objective or partisan? To try to parse the media-hate, as we have over the last few months, is to sense that the media still does at least one job very well: reflecting the contradictory desires of the audience it serves.
