Is quality journalism still possible?

Is quality journalism still possible? | The Journalist | Scoop.it

By Ferruccio de Bortoli

 

Publishers are struggling to survive in an age when information technologies have revolutionized the press industry. However, cutting costs is not the answer, as it will affect quality and move publishers closer to their own extinction - they are behaving like lemmings, the little, Arctic animals who, according to popular myth, rush together to their death.

radiomike's insight:

Gourmet restaurants don't compete with fast food businesses by cutting costs but by focusing on quality and catering to customers who are looking for a different kind of culinary experience.  Why should the news business be any different?

Why journalism needs permanent innovation

Why journalism needs permanent innovation | The Journalist | Scoop.it

Some journalists are of course innovative, but I do not have the feeling that the need for innovation is perceived as something really urgent within the profession. The big changes of the last 10 years have come from the outside world, from people who are not journalists.

Is Google Glass the future of mobile news?

Is Google Glass the future of mobile news? | The Journalist | Scoop.it

Google Glass is the perfect medium for receiving news updates about the topics you care about, but up until today no one had quite perfected how to do that. The New York Times app comes standard with every pair of the high-tech glasses, but only sends the paper’s top headlines on an hourly basis. News isn’t tailored to fit your interests, nor is the frequency of news headlines are sent to you. The result? You end up with a backlog of news stories in Glass you likely don’t care about. For those you do care about, the app is only capable of reading you the first few sentences of the story or letting you share the story with friends on Google+.

Opportunities for journalism

Opportunities for journalism | The Journalist | Scoop.it
Few people are better equipped to imagine the future of online journalism than Emily Bell. Currently the Director of Columbia University’s Tow Center for Digital Journalism, Bell was formerly director of digital content at the Guardian newspaper where she pioneered much of what we now take for granted about online journalism. And now Bell has co-authored (with Clay Shirky and C.W. Anderson) a controversial report about the future of journalism entitled Post Industrial Journalism. As Bell told me when we talked in her New York office, she believes that online journalism has a future – both in terms of content sitting behind paywalls, ad-supported news, and content subsidized by organizations or wealthy individuals. Indeed, in what Bell calls the “disruptive stage” of online journalism, she thinks that there are now “massive opportunities” for entrepreneurs looking to reinvent journalism.

Old testament vs. new testament journalism

The free press gods initially gave us the old testament. Then the news testament rose and took over for about 90 years. Recently the old testament has roared back to life and now we have something close to parity or détente, in which it is recognized that we need both.

Ethical journalism for the digital age

Ethical journalism for the digital age | The Journalist | Scoop.it

In the current media ecosystem of Twitter, News of the World, and a failing news economy, how can your newsroom maintain credibility while everyone else seems to be losing theirs? Aidan White, Director of the Ethical Journalism Network (EJN), insists the answers to maintaining a journalism worthy of democracy’s highest ideals can be found by reassessing ethics standards – a task which is much harder to implement in practice.

Why we need better storytellers

Why we need better storytellers | The Journalist | Scoop.it

Journalists tell stories so it’s not surprising we think in terms of ‘narratives’ with even the most complex issues. For me narrative has become an almost redundant cliche over used by politicians and marketeers. But it’s still useful to describe how stories – incidents,  issues, organisations, individuals etc – can be woven into a developing thread. And then sometimes that narrative changes.

We need better stories. The situation that accompanies that photograph isn't going to be changed by any narrative, not if that narrative is truthful.

The article itself is good. I just read it. Current events have always been complicated. The author of the post, at LSE, demurs at facile answers e.g. blame it on post-Modernism. Thank you for sharing this, znmeb.

What Sandy Hook taught us

It started with confusion at the scene of the crime. A source told CNN the killer was named Ryan Lanza. Soon several news organizations published images from a Facebook profile belonging to a man with that name. Some of them declared he was the killer.

Verification. Verification. Verification. Oh, and a bit more transparency.
