This Is the Scariest Statistic About the Newspaper Business Today

This Is the Scariest Statistic About the Newspaper Business Today | Journalism Trends and Futures | Scoop.it
In 2012, newspapers lost $16 in print ads for every $1 earned in digital ads.
Damian Radcliffe's insight:

Since 2003, print ads have fallen from $45 billion to $19 billion. Online ads have only grown from $1.2 to $3.3 billion. Stop and think about that gap. The total ten-year increase in digital advertising isn't even enough to overcome the average single-year decline in print ads since 2003. Ugh.

Newspapers take aim at Google News again

Newspapers take aim at Google News again | Journalism Trends and Futures | Scoop.it

For digital news publishers, nailing a prominent link in Google News has almost always been a good thing. It is a traffic boon. The automatic news aggregation service sends 4 billion clicks to news websites every month, according to Google. But some publishers – namely AP, AFP, and Rupert Murdoch – have long taken umbrage with Google, whom they have accused of leeching off of newspapers’ content. Cantankerous Murdoch has called Google “content kleptomaniacs.”

Breaking the Arab News - By Sultan Al Qassemi

Breaking the Arab News - By Sultan Al Qassemi | Journalism Trends and Futures | Scoop.it

While civil war rages on the Syrian battlefield between regime loyalists and myriad rebel factions, another battle is taking place in the media world. Al Arabiya and Al Jazeera, the two Gulf-based channels that dominate the Arabic news business, have moved to counter Syrian regime propaganda, but have ended up distorting the news almost as badly as their opponents. In their bid to support the Syrian rebels' cause, these media giants have lowered their journalistic standards, abandoned rudimentary fact-checks, and relied on anonymous callers and unverified videos in place of solid reporting.

Knight Foundation funds new projects for fact-checking and transparency | Journalism Trends and Futures | Scoop.it

The funding from Knight will go toward fact-checking and transparency work, as well as to efforts to increase support for and visibility of women in the tech sector.

Wired magazine plans to use Knight funds to build off its journalism-on-Github experiment by developing a WordPress plugin that would allow readers to assist in error reporting, translation, and other feedback. Sourcemap, which allows users to track the supply chain of products, is developing a mapping tool for the Concord, Mass., school department to follow the path of food to the schools’ meals.

Taylor Wessing: Exposing libel myths surrounding Twitter and social media

Taylor Wessing: Exposing libel myths surrounding Twitter and social media | Journalism Trends and Futures | Scoop.it

In short, Twitter users and anyone else using social media is just as responsible for unlawful material as the traditional and mainstream press. Ignorance of the law is not a defence. The message is clear: if you should not say something in a national newspaper or on the sofa of a news show, you should not say it on Twitter. The public cannot treat their posts on Twitter and Facebook as they would a casual chat to a couple of friends in the pub.
