'Fact Check This': How U.S. politics adapts to media scrutiny | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Media fact-checking has become a fact of life for political professionals, especially at the national level and in places where local news organizations have dedicated reporters to verifying statements by elected officials, candidates and their supporters.

Journalism and the power of emotions

Journalism and the power of emotions | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Does the shift from print to digital really affect our ability to feel empathy with the characters in journalistic stories? How might that change journalism?

These questions are at the heart of a research project on the future of magazine journalism initiated by the George T. Delacorte Center. As part of our yearlong Delacorte fellowship with CJR, the three of us have shaped and conducted this project to investigate digital media’s largely unexplored potential effects on empathy.

From the post: "A spike in shares, for example, can trigger feelings of triumph for most journalists, while less impressive stats can make people feel anxious and lacking in motivation."

The future of journalism: Survey Lets SPJ Know It’s On the Right Track

The future of journalism: Survey Lets SPJ Know It’s On the Right Track | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"

The Society of Professional Journalists gave the Reuters Institute access to its members for a survey on the future of journalism. The results, while not surprising, let SPJ know that it had its finger well-placed on the pulse of an industry.

News flash: Journalists don’t have a very rosy outlook on the future of their industry or their place in it. That’s according to more than 500 members of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) who were surveyed for the Reuters Institute’s ongoing project on the future of journalistic work.

The industry is in a constant state of change, people are being required to do more, work in multiple platforms, create their own identity.

According to the survey, more than 75 percent of journalists believe they’ll be asked to produce more stories and that they’ll never be off the clock. Another 70 percent said their work will be more stressful than other white-collar professionals in the future, and 86 percent agreed strongly with the statement that they “will have to engage in personal branding … to succeed professionally.”

Dear Bill Gates: 'Will you lead the fight against climate change?' - The Guardian’s campaign

Dear Bill Gates: 'Will you lead the fight against climate change?' - The Guardian’s campaign | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"Since mid-March, the Guardian’s Keep it in the Ground campaign, in partnership with 350.org, has been calling on the Gates foundation (and also the Wellcome Trust, another global medical charity) to divest its $43.5bn (£28bn) endowment from fossil fuel assets. That would meanmoving $1.4bn from oil, coal and gas stocks into alternatives. The logic is simple, these companies are committed to prospecting for more fossil fuels at a time when proven reserves are already far greater than we can afford to safely burn."

Building Nonlinear Narratives for the Web

Building Nonlinear Narratives for the Web | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
I’m Tiv, and I grew up with fables like this. In 2011, I started Pixel Fable as a way to tell these Nigerian stories digitally. That story about Aondo, “Why the Sky Is Far Away,” was the first one I designed and built. I used augmented reality to make the animations feel more interactive (along with some wonderfully spaghetti parallax JavaScript). But the story was still a single HTML page, told from one perspective, along a linear timeline. My translation from oral tale to web page was too direct—I hadn’t captured the multifaceted ways a story could exist online.

New Tow Center study: the role of metrics in journalism

A new report, “The Traffic Factories”, launched on May 7th by the Tow Center for Digital Journalism looks at how analytics affect newsroom culture and the journalists’ daily work. Research fellow Caitlin Petre conducted an ethnographic study examining three case studies: the analytics company Chartbeat, Gawker Media, where metrics are highly available to the editorial staff, and the New York Times, where the use of metrics is more marginal. She found that metrics “exert a powerful influence over journalists’ emotions and morale”, inspiring a range of strong feelings, which are too often overlooked. Newsroom managers should consider the potential effects of traffic data not only on editorial content but also on editorial workers, the study says.

Apple Watch highlights need for shorter news as screen sizes shrink

Apple Watch highlights need for shorter news as screen sizes shrink | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
News is shrinking, not just in terms of revenue and jobs, it is literally arriving in ever smaller pieces. Instagram has 12-second videos from BBC News littering the feed of cat pictures and dinner shots. On SnapChat “Discover”, the Daily Mail, Cosmo and ESPN pare down sport, celeb and style stories for the younger, shorter attention-span. Huffington Post grapples with getting its “breaking news” on to WhatsApp. Every journalist with a phone adopts Periscope to live-stream snippets of political campaigns or riots.

The pressure of the attention economy means that for many years the decline of “the mass middle” has been predicted; now the data suggests it has arrived. News that is too long for a tweet, too short to be in-depth analysis, and too slow to be telling you anything first has decreasing value. News that is digitally generated but which does not work on a phone is increasingly worthless.

Why is Snapchat getting into the news business?

Why is Snapchat getting into the news business? | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
This morning, word leaked that CNN reporter Peter Hamby was leaving to become Snapchat’s head of news. Outsiders to the media scene, and insiders who have been living subterraneously for the last 18 months, are no doubt shocked by the move of a star reporter from a prestigious old-line cable company to a four-year-old startup. And there will be hand-wringing in the Beltway press corps over Hamby’s new job. (Politico’s Dylan Byers postulates that “the move may frustrate and even confound Hamby’s readers.”)

From Hamby’s perspective, the move seems like a no-brainer.

How journalism’s people and institutions have encountered an ongoing tsunami | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

Disruption is the first Big Roundtable Book. It is written by Michael Shapiro, Anna Hiatt and Mike Hoyt,  all members of the journalism faculty at Columbia University and, respectively the founder, publisher and editor of The Big Roundtable, a new platform for narrative nonfiction.

 

"All of us connected to journalism have been through over a decade of change so profound that it will take years to be fully explained and understood.
The road ahead is not always brightly lit.
Our aim is to help illuminate the conversation about the journalistic landscape with a new and, we believe, essential book about how journalism’s people and institutions have encountered the ongoing tsunami".
