EQUIPPING YOU FOR THE FOURTH REVOLUTION IN JOURNALISM Yet again, journalism is undergoing radical change. James Harding, the BBC's director of news and current affairs, speaks of a fourth revolution in journalism. First there was print, and then came the first three revolutions: • Radio • Television • Online Each caused radical upheaval in their turn. The fourth revolution, which is taking place right now, is being caused by mobile technology. The brand new 2nd edition of Multimedia Journalism is designed to help student journalists join that fourth revolution.

The Guardian’s “Web We Want” series will analyze abuse on the paper’s own site

The Guardian’s “Web We Want” series will analyze abuse on the paper’s own site | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
As most people — and most women on Twitter — know, the Internet can be an ugly and abusive place.
Andy Bull's insight:
From the post: "Plenty of news organisations have removed their comments sections, “deciding that the costs outweigh the benefits, and turning to other modes of interaction instead,” she wrote. “The Guardian is not making that decision — but that means we do have to evolve and manage our comments deliberately.”"

Want to start a small data journalism team in your newsroom? Here are 8 steps | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
"There are a bunch of skills needed in building news apps, but at the most abstract level they fall into three buckets: Code, Design, and Journalism.
Andy Bull's insight:
From the post: "Treat the team like a news desk and expect them to be journalists in everything they do. Members of the team should come to editorial meetings, call sources, and get bylines on their work. They should be like co-reporters in projects that are collaborations with a more traditional reporter — never “the data monkey.”"

Digital disruption is coming quickly to TV news; how can broadcasters adapt and respond? | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
"The question should not be what will replace traditional television news. Nothing will. The question has to be: How can we move beyond television news as we know it?"
Andy Bull's insight:
From the post: "Television was supposed to be different, more resilient to digital disruption than print. For a long time, it was. It no longer is. Television today faces the full gales of creative destruction and digital disruption on a scale similar to what other media industries have faced."

How newsroom pressure is letting fake stories on to the web

How newsroom pressure is letting fake stories on to the web | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

It started with a post on social media. Or, to be more exact, a series of posts about a visit to McDonald’s to buy a milkshake. Within hours, Josh Raby’s gripping account on Twitter was international news, covered by respected outlets on both sides of the Atlantic.

 

“This guy’s story about trying to buy a McDonald’s milkshake turned into a bit of a mission and the internet can’t get enough of it,” read the headline on Indy100, the Independent’s sister title. The New York Daily News said he’d been “tortured”. Except, as McDonald’s pointed out – and Raby himself later admitted – the story was embellished to entertain his Twitter followers, although he says he based it on real events.

 

Raby’s was the latest thinly sourced story that, on closer inspection, turned out not to be as billed. The phenomenon is largely a product of the increasing pressure in newsrooms that have had their resources slashed, then been recalibrated to care more about traffic figures.

 

And, beyond professional journalists, there is also a “whole cottage industry of people who put out fake news”, says Brooke Binkowski, an editor at debunking website Snopes. “They profit from it quite a lot in advertising when people start sharing the stories. They are often protected because they call themselves ‘satire’ or say in tiny fine print that they are for entertainment purposes only.”...

Andy Bull's insight:
News organisations should be creating VR content. From the post: "The next major obstacle will be content.  Today’s VR equipment still has some kinks to iron out, but the hardware is nearly complete enough for consumer use. However, for VR to make a proper splash, today’s software developers must focus their efforts on creating content that consumers will use on their headsets."
