This year’s Reuters Institute Digital News Report is based on research conducted in 12 countries, surveying over 23,000 people.

"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. "
En Portada es uno de los programas informativos de Televisión Española que más premios ha recibido. Su director, José Antonio Guardiola (Madrid, 1963) es de esos periodistas que siguen ilusionados por su trabajo a pesar del paso de los años.

"Don’t take it personally. By all accounts the under-40 crowd and many over forty (API millennial study here) read and value news. But they are not paying for it in larger numbers, and they are certainly not nearly as loyal to a small handful of digital news sources as their parents were to print.
We can argue that the Internet, and even more specifically mobile phones are the leading cause of this disruption. But that takes agency away from journalists and places it squarely on “technology.” And framing it as a tech problem drives us to try and solve it with technology."
The objective of the research reported in this article was to analyse and quantify the narrative techniques employed in videos embedded in the home pages of five Spanish online newspapers. For the purpose of tracing the evolution of the approaches taken by these digital dailies away from the traditional narrative models used in television production, two separate study samples representing video reporting published online in 2011 and 2014 were examined. Findings show that material outsourced from agencies largely comprised short videos with voiceovers that conformed to the narrative structures of traditional journalism whereas those produced in-house by the five online dailies studied offered an innovative model that borrowed freely from other genres, involved longer stories supported by sound bites rather than voiceovers and were structured along lines other than those of the classic inverted pyramid.
10 numbers that I think tell us where we’re at today, in yet another uncertain time for the “future of news.” So, here, for your summer beach thinking, are a few numbers that deserve our attention. It’s not an eternal top 10 list; it’s a list of the moment, guaranteed to change. I welcome your additions.

The ACMA regulates the broadcasting sector in Australia, including commercial and community radio, and free-to-air and subscription television. The ACMA can investigate code complaints first made to broadcasters, where the complainant remains dissatisfied with the broadcaster’s response.
The various broadcast industry codes often employ general terms and phrases such as ‘accuracy’ and ‘impartiality’ about which there can be questions of interpretation. One task of the ACMA is giving meaning to such terms and deciding which broadcasts, viewed in context, cross the line between acceptable and unacceptable.
The ACMA is publishing this Investigation concepts series to share the insights developed through its investigations work. The objective of the series is to identify how various important principles of broadcast content regulation have been exemplified, clarified or applied in ACMA decisions.
"Forget the 70-30 split for subscription between publishers and distributors. Today, for publishers, the new norm is a 100%-70% split of ad revenues, depending on who sells the ad. For news distribution, re-intermediation will be intensely competitive.
The chart above illustrates the upcoming shift in news distribution. No doubt: We’re heading towards a new phase of massive re-intermediation, of reshuffling the layers between the news producers (traditional media houses or pure players) and readers. This raises important questions: What will publishers gain or lose in the process? Will they end up handcuffed to a cluster of gatekeepers or will they reap decisive gains for their business model.
Who becomes the dominant player in this new structure?"
Eu ainda posso escrever o óbvio sobre quem todos sabemos que é Isabel dos Santos e de onde vem uma fortuna que não devia ser sua. Mas quando Isabel dos Santos reage a um artigo desagradável na conceituada “Forbes” comprando a sua publicação em português e o seu provável silêncio, fica claro como se calam as vozes incómodas. Por cá, diga-se em abono da verdade, não tem sido difícil.
