Only entrepreneurs will save journalism – Thoughts On Journalism – Medium

Most journalists seem to have concluded, with nary a glimmer of doubt, that journalism is doomed without philanthropy. Journalism doesn’t have a content problem. It doesn’t have an audience problem. Again, we don’t have a journalism problem. We don’t have an audience problem. We have a technology problem. We have a business model problem. That’s where investment money needs to flow. The more ideas funded, the more ventures backed, the better chance one or two successful business models emerge.

AP's 'robot journalists' are writing about Minor League Baseball now

AP's 'robot journalists' are writing about Minor League Baseball now | Future of Journalism. Debatable. | Scoop.it

The Associated Press has already used its automated reporting platform Wordsmith to generate things that its human writers also cover, like quarterly earnings and college sports, but now its "robot journalists" are branching out to a new sector — Minor League Baseball. The publisher will now cover the US minor leagues, feeding data from MLB Advanced Media into the the same software it has used to produce automatic stories for the last two years.

The AP tried covering Minor League Baseball in 2006 but couldn't report on as many games

The Boston Globe is getting smarter about digital subscriptions — and tightening up its paywall

The Boston Globe is getting smarter about digital subscriptions — and tightening up its paywall | Future of Journalism. Debatable. | Scoop.it

"Publishers are “now entering a second generation of digital models.” In the first generation, publishers were just trying to prove out the concept that consumers would pay up. With that accomplished, many are now focused on optimizing and building on that model. There’s a lot of evidence news organizations are getting more nuanced with their approaches — and that over time has resulted in paywalls with fewer holes, not more. The Wall Street Journal, which has put most stories behind a hard paywall since the 1990s, recently closed a feature that let visitors skirt restrictions by pasting a story’s headline in Google. It also recently killed of a secret (yet surprisingly well-known) free login popular among those in media circles. With the moves, it joined The Washington Post, which has been testing efforts to close loopholes that let visitors access its content for free. Premium news organizations in 2017 are in a constant process of opening and closing paywall loopholes, depending on their goals.

The scariest chart in Mary Meeker’s slide deck for newspapers has gotten even a smidge scarier

The scariest chart in Mary Meeker’s slide deck for newspapers has gotten even a smidge scarier | Future of Journalism. Debatable. | Scoop.it

The two things that jump out at me: Print gets a lot more advertising than it gets attention. And mobile is the opposite. You’d think that would equalize with time.

Andrey Miroshnichenko's insight:
Interesting. Papers getting only 4% of overall media consumption and 12% of overall media advertising - is it unjust disproportion? or a proof that print media SO MUCH important that the society agrees to systematically overpay for the Baghdad Bureau (from the pockets of advertisers)?

Don’t confuse this, as I did, with the already established revenue stream known as events. The Atlantic, The Texas Tribune, The New York Times and, for that matter, the Globe, have been making some extra money with conferences, travel shows and newsmaker interviews for several years now.

Newsonomics: Our Peggy Lee moment: Is that all there is to reader revenue? | Future of Journalism. Debatable. | Scoop.it
Those numbers are still okay if you’re The New York Times with a U.S. monthly audience of 97 million, according to comScore data for August, or The Washington Post with 92 million. If, though, you’re The Baltimore Sun, The Sacramento Bee, or the Arizona Republic — with audiences one-fifth to one-twentieth that size — the math’s a lot harder.

That’s why we see that huge disparity in digital subscriber counts. The Times has surpassed 2 million paid digital subscribers, while the Post is now over 1 million.

Why Data Journalism, Even 'Brilliant, Better Journalism' is Coded as Liberal Propaganda - MediaShift

Why Data Journalism, Even 'Brilliant, Better Journalism' is Coded as Liberal Propaganda - MediaShift | Future of Journalism. Debatable. | Scoop.it

“We simultaneously have journalism that’s better than ever, and journalism that seems to have less of an impact than ever before,” “Truth has become tribalized, and objectivity has become just another fashion, part of just another tribe as rendered by this form of journalism,” Anderson said. “(Data Journalism) is stranded at elite media outlets that now, in later years, have not only become elite, but highly politicized,” he argues. “These best forms of journalism found a home in the very media outlets that are now regularly dismissed by half the population.” “There’s no easier way to get 40 percent of the country to agree with you on a particular issue than to turn it into a partisan claim. The minute you weaponize a truth claim in a partisan fashion, what you tend to have happen is the partisans rallying,” Anderson said. “I see trust in data declining just like trust in everything is by and large declining.”

Ultimately, in the Times’ case, Goodridge said that another key driver of the Times’ newsletter growth came down to the product itself. While the newsletters vary in form quite a bit – some are interactive, some are conversational, some are more service-oriented – they are finite, a quality that Goodridge says is appealing in digital media. “People really like newspapers because they have that finality,” she said. “A good newsletter offers the same experience.

“It feels really good to delete an email,” she added.
