News Media Organizations Must Innovate The News-Gathering Process

News Media Organizations Must Innovate The News-Gathering Process | Karma Peiró | Scoop.it

I selected this article by Vadim Lavrusik, journalist program manager at Facebook, posted on Mashable. 

I excerpted some interesting points from this long article:

 

"Disclaimer: A robot did not write this. Neither did an algorithm. As has been done for centuries, a human curated the information and produced this content. But that doesn’t mean that technology didn’t help.

 

While it’s become easier for journalists to find information, discover sources through the web, and use tools like Storify to curate content, the process still relies on having the bodies to scour for this information. And that’s the challenge.

 

In the newspaper industry, there were more than 13,000 newsroom jobs lost between 2006 and 2010, according to Pew’s State of the News Media report. At the same time, the amount of information available has grown at an astronomical rate. These two things are at odds.

 

Media must build tools that help a journalist do what it once took five journalists to do. They must innovate the news-gathering process.

 

***The History: Publishing and Innovation

 

Before the web, it was difficult to produce, distribute, and access information. Publishers thrived since they had a printing press to produce information at scale.

Today, the social web is the new public square. Anyone is able to produce and publish information at the click of a button.

 

To stay competitive, publishers adapted to producing content for the web by integrating their newsrooms.

 

Media organizations like the one you’re reading as well as others adapted distribution based on where audiences were spending more time: social and mobile.

But with all this focus on innovating the distribution process, innovation in news gathering, largely, took a backseat. Distribution isn’t necessarily the challenge. News gathering at scale is.

 

***The Opportunities: Distributed Reporting and Investing in Technology

 

Crowdsourcing and distributed reporting are two great tools news organizations can use to scale and are part of the solution. This means media organizations should think of themselves not only as producers of content but also as platforms for content. One example is CNN. It began bridging the gap between the producer and the citizenry through iReport...

 

A great example of this is The Guardian, which deployed its community to help dig through 458,832 expense documents belonging to Members of Parliament...

 

But even as we look at ways to innovate the reporting process, newsrooms must also re-prioritize skill sets and equip themselves with hacker journalists. There are already journalists who write scripts to make their reporting more efficient, but journalists with such skills are hard to come by.

 

Journalists should no longer think of themselves as “newspaper reporters” or a journalist of any specific medium. Instead they should consider themselves multimedia producers equipped to tell a story on multiple platforms. They should also have knowledge of how stories are being consumed. More than anything, a truly “integrated newsroom” will have journalists who build tools that enable them to do reporting at scale and innovate the storytelling process.

 

***The Solution: Becoming Builders

If content is king and distribution is queen, where does that leave the news-gathering process?

We need a new approach to how news organizations refocus their innovation on building technology that will equip journalists to do better, smarter, and more efficient reporting...."

I have a journalism degree, although I am not in that field right now, I have seen a tremendous change with video reporting and writing now happening on internet news sites. One reporter must know how to do both. It has changed dramatically, and the internet news sites are winning, over print.

Hi Michelle, I totally agree with your comment. Thanks for it!

Let’s take news apps out of the newsroom and create products instead of content | Poynter.

"In a broader sense, we mean thinking about news apps as “products,” not “content,” and approaching the way we build them as designers and entrepreneurs, not reporters and editors. We mean Data Enterprise: decoupling news apps from the news cycle and investing more resources in products that are durable, engaging, useful – even profitable."
