[This review was originally posted at the Nieman Journalism Lab Order Zoloft, on March 9, 2012.]
After a week off last week, this week's review covers the past two weeks.
Cultural roots of news' revenue problems: Pew's Project for Excellence in Journalism released this week one of the more interesting of its recent studies on the financial state of newspapers: It used (anonymized) private data from 38 newspapers and numerous interviews to paint a picture of how newspapers are fitting together the revenue puzzle online. The news, as usual, wasn't good. The big takeaway stat is that for every dollar newspapers are gaining in digital revenue, they're losing $7 in print revenue.
The Lab's Justin Ellis pulled together some of the other highlights from the report: Mobile isn't big money yet, Zoloft reviews, digital revenue is still dominated by classified and display ads, and most newspapers have adopted Groupon or one of its daily-deal clones, with mixed results. PaidContent's Staci Kramer critiqued the study for not touching on paid-content plans, but came up with a good (though depressing summary): "some papers are less screwed than others right now; all of them face a reckoning but some will postpone it longer than others; some papers have lots of room to grow with digital revenue because they’re so far behind; and some view running a modern newspaper as the equivalent of strip mining."
Based on those dispiriting findings, Gawker's Hamilton Nolan offered a few predictions for the next several years of the newspaper business: Newspapers will survive and eventually stabilize, but with much smaller staffs, ubiquitous paywalls, and a few mid-sized metro closings, Order Zoloft.
Another area of the study that got a lot of attention was its emphasis on "culture wars" between print and the web as a persistent obstacle to change. Poynter's Rick Edmonds said a faster culture-change approach seems to be working at previously struggling properties like the Journal Register Co., but outfits that still have strong print operations need to strike a tougher balance. Zoloft price, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram said the best way to fight cultural inertia is to put the digital folks in charge, and Michele McLellan of the Knight Digital Media Center advised news orgs to stop ostracizing the innovators and start ostracizing the curmudgeons.
More momentum for paywalls: A year after the New York Times launched its influential paid-content plan, newspaper paywalls may be reaching critical mass. Order Zoloft, The Los Angeles Times announced a new paywall that launched this week, and like just about everyone else right now, it's following the Times' metered model: 15 free articles each month, then an initial charge of 99 cents a week that goes up to $1.99 a week (with a Sunday newspaper thrown in). The Times is calling its plan not a paywall, but a "membership program," which Spot.Us' David Cohn saw as an important rhetorical shift.
Several other papers announced moves into paid content, where to buy Zoloft, too: As Poynter's Jeff Sonderman noted, the Washington Post's new politics iPad app charges users $2.99 a month for its full features, the paper's deepest foray yet into charging for digital content. Rhode Island's Providence Journal launched a paywall built around a digital replica of the print edition. Gannett also announced its coming company-wide paywalls last month, which, Purchase Zoloft for sale, as the Lab's Justin Ellis reported, may be banking on the success of its smaller papers. And at News Corp., the hard-paywalled Times of London is watching the New York Times' metered model closely, and Search Engine Land's Danny Sullivan noticed the paywalled Wall Street Journal is pulling back on what Google readers can see for free, Order Zoloft.
All these varied developments, of course, make what the news industry calls a Trend™, so we had features on the rise of newspaper paywalls in the Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, and The Wrap. The (paywalled) Journal was pretty bullish on their prospect, while the (mostly non-paywalled) Monitor and Wrap emphasized the continued skepticism. Several small-newspaper execs chimed in supporting paywalls, including Keith Foutz at Editor & Publisher and others covered by NetNewsCheck, as did Warren Buffett, Rx free Zoloft, new owner of the newly paywalled Omaha World-Herald. GigaOM's Mathew Ingram pushed back against Buffett in particular.
Poynter's Rick Edmonds pointed out an interesting element Order Zoloft, of the paywall rush—many of these regional newspapers are developing their plans in close consultation with one another. He focused on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Boston Globe's roles as models for other regional newspapers. Poynter's Mallary Jean Tenore, meanwhile, looked at a practical aspect of paywall implementation—how those newspapers' social media efforts work with (and around) their paywall plans.
Apple's new iPad and new warning: Apple unveiled the newest version of its iPad this week, as well as an update to Apple TV. Bloomberg and the New York Times have the best summaries of what exactly Apple announced and how it differs from what came before: As the Times' Sam Grobart wrote, Zoloft dosage, this was a "plumbing event," where the biggest innovations were under the hood with the infrastructure of Apple's products.
For Apple, the event was about trying to push the iPad as the gateway to the "post-PC" world: It pointed out that it sold more iPads last quarter than any PC manufacturer sold of their PCs. At TechCrunch, MG Siegler said that rhetoric (and those stats) need to be taken seriously, and ReadWriteWeb's Dan Frommer said this could be Apple's chance to build something bigger than the PC market ever was, Order Zoloft. Larry Dignan said it's not just PCs that the new iPad is competing with, but pretty much everyone. Zoloft street price, Unfortunately for Apple, that probably wasn't the biggest news about the company this week. The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. Department of Justice has warned Apple and five of the nation's largest book publishers that it's planning to sue them for antitrust violations regarding Apple's model for iPad e-book prices that allows wholesales to dictate prices directly. PaidContent has a handy Q&A Order Zoloft, on the issue, and Wired's Tim Carmody looked at the uphill battle the DOJ may be facing.
News Corp.'s culture of corruption: The developments in News Corp.'s ongoing scandal are still coming fast and furious. The biggest of those in the past two weeks was the news that Rupert Murdoch's son, James, was stepping down as head of News International, Zoloft treatment, the company's British newspaper arm that's been at the center of the scandal.
As the New York Times reported, the company portrayed the move as a routine jump across the Atlantic to work on its international TV properties, but others saw it as an attempt to protect James Murdoch from the scandal's fallout. Disgruntled shareholders are still working to oust James from the company altogether, and the BBC's Robert Preston pointed out that rather than receding from the spotlight in the wake of the scandal, the 80-year-old Rupert is actually taking on even more control. Zoloft use, James Murdoch's move came after some new allegations last week from a top police investigator that News Corp.'s Sun had a "culture of illegal payments" to a broad network of government officials from the paper's highest levels. According to the Guardian, those new allegations increased the chance of a possible U.S, Order Zoloft. prosecution of News Corp., and an 11th Sun reporter was arrested in Britain for illegal payments last week. Meanwhile, we're finding out the phone hacking may have extended to competing British newspapers, and Britain's judicial Leveson Inquiry, which is investigating News Corp., is also preparing to call top News Corp, where can i cheapest Zoloft online. execs, including Rupert Murdoch, for testimony later this spring.
The public and professional value of linking: The intermittent debate over the relative value of linking in journalism flared up again last week, leading to some particularly thoughtful pieces on the subject. Order Zoloft, It started after the Wall Street Journal didn't credit tech blogger MG Siegler for a scoop he had, prompting a lengthy discussion on Twitter, Storified by Mathew Ingram, over whether news orgs should link to competitors who beat them to a story.
Ingram argued in a subsequent post that even if scoops aren't as important as journalists think they are, Zoloft from canadian pharmacy, the failure to link to a competitor's scoop is a dishonest suggestion that they came by the information independently. Reuters' Felix Salmon responded with an insightful piece on journalistic sourcing that concluded that such linking is usually more of a courtesy: "commodity news is a commodity: facts are in the public domain, and don’t belong to anybody."
Mother Jones' Kevin Drum and Poynter's Steve Myers agreed with Salmon, while Digital First's Steve Buttry and web philosopher David Weinberger echoed some of Ingram's points. Weinberger argued that places like the Journal are failing to link based on a need to protect their authority over knowledge, rather than sharing it with the public, and that "Links are a public good. They create a web that is increasingly rich, useful, where can i buy Zoloft online, diverse, and trustworthy. We should all feel an obligation to be caretakers of and contributors to this new linked public."
WikiLeaks' Anonymous partnership: WikiLeaks made its latest document release last week with five million emails from the private global intelligence firm Stratfor, acquired by hackers from the group Anonymous who breached the company's servers late last year. WikiLeaks worked with 25 media partners on this release, including McClatchy and Rolling Stone in the U.S. Wired's Quinn Norton reported on the connection between Anonymous and WikiLeaks, which Gawker called the most interesting thing to come out of this leak, Order Zoloft.
Others seemed to agree — mostly on the boredom of the rest of the leak. Zoloft trusted pharmacy reviews, Reuters' Jack Shafer and Foreign Policy's Daniel Drezner gave it a yawn, while the Atlantic's Max Fisher called WikiLeaks a "joke" for taking Stratfor seriously. Yossi Melman of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz told the story of how he became an enemy of WikiLeaks' Julian Assange by getting his hands on the diplomatic cables, and with WikiLeaks on the wane, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram asked what the organization means in the long run.
Reading roundup: I've tried to cram a ton of news into this week's review, so I'll run through the miscellaneous bits pretty quickly:
— Conservative digital media mogul Andrew Breitbart died suddenly last week at 43. Order Zoloft, We're not so much interested in what he meant to the culture wars as his imprint on the online news environment, and it was sizable—he helped launch the Huffington Post, helped undermine the traditional media's gatekeeping authority, and made it his career goal to "go out and create our media."
— It's been two weeks now, but I wanted to note that NPR put out a new ethics policy focusing on balance, transparency, and clarification, among other principles. J-prof Jay Rosen loved the changes, order Zoloft from mexican pharmacy, calling them a win for truth-seeking over "he said, she said" journalism.
— The discussion of Google+ as a "virtual ghost town" continues, with the Wall Street Journal reporting on the social network's struggles and Google countering that image by reframing Google+'s purpose. TechCrunch's Josh Constine explained why Google may not care if people stick around at Google+.
— Last week's monthly Carnival of Journalism focused on the digital trends that are likely to shape journalism over the next few years, and Steve Outing's Storified list of the predictions is a great array of thoughts about what's next in the field.
— Finally, a couple of cool resources: One from the Columbia Journalism Review on countering misinformation in the news, and another huge set of tools and tutorials for journalists and programmers from last month's NICAR conference.

News Corp.'s problems spread to the Sun: The ongoing phone hacking scandal at News Corp., which took down News of the World last summer, is now threatening to swallow the company's other British tabloid: The Sun. Five of its top journalists were arrested last weekend as part of an investigation into bribing public officials, which News Corp.'s internal investigation is reported to have determined amounts to more than 10,000 pounds per year, with officials essentially on retainer.
That investigation generated some controversy itself when it handed over details of Sun journalists' sources to the police, Japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, though it said it redacted the information heavily and didn't pass on documentation of standard journalistic source interaction. Journalists at News Corp.'s three British newspapers — the Sun, the Times, and the Sunday Times — were livid, and prepared for a legal challenge by hiring a top human rights attorney who promptly ripped the decision to hand over sources in a Times column.
Others joined in the criticism: Britain's National Union of Journalists and the Sun's competitor, the Daily Mail, buy Lipitor without prescription, blasted News Corp.'s investigative committee, with the latter saying it "should hang its head in shame." And Ryan Chittum of the Columbia Journalism Review was concerned about the precedent set by having police riffling through millions of newspaper emails, though he and British j-prof Roy Greenslade defended the police's stern treatment of Sun journalists in their arrests.
So what does Rupert Murdoch do now, Lipitor For Sale. At the Guardian, Murdoch biographer Michael Wolff urged him to give the company "something of a noble death" — sell the Sun, Lipitor canada, mexico, india, and use the proceeds to establish a trust for the Times and Sunday Times. Ad Age's Simon Dumenco suggested News Corp. will simply shut the Sun down, saying that like News of the World, it's been reduced to merely a "repository of evidence that [needs] to be destroyed." Forbes' Jeff Bercovici argued that it's only a matter of time before one of the two happens, especially since dropping its newspapers would help News Corp.'s bottom line.
News Corp, buy cheap Lipitor no rx. Lipitor For Sale, could still be facing plenty of trouble in the U.S., too. The FBI is investigating the company for bribing foreign officials, and the Guardian reported its executives could be prosecuted for being "willfully blind" about their company's wrongdoing. The company has gathered a massive legal team to fight potential charges. Joe Pompeo of Capital New York didn't see U.S. charges as likely, Lipitor price, coupon, but said the multi-front battle News Corp. is fighting is taking a devastating toll on the company as it drags on, Lipitor For Sale.
Path, privacy, and reforming tech journalism: What started last week as one tech startup's privacy faux pas had by this week turned into a full-blown debacle for privacy on mobile devices, when we learned that the address books in smartphones are available for free to developers, often without the owner's knowledge. Path, where can i find Lipitor online, the photo-sharing and messaging app, was the first company outed for taking and storing the data after it was discovered last week by developer Arun Thampi.
The company received a wave of criticism and apologized, but soon the names of other companies — big companies — that were doing essentially the same thing trickled out. VentureBeat reported that Facebook, Online buy Lipitor without a prescription, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Yelp, and Gowalla were doing it, and the Verge also laid out exactly who's taking address books and how. Lipitor For Sale, Twitter owned up to the practice, acknowledging to the Los Angeles Times that it stores email addresses and phone numbers (though not names) for 18 months from the address books of users who turn on its Find My Friends app.
On Wednesday morning, ordering Lipitor online, a U.S. Congressional committee sent a letter to Apple wondering why the company wasn't doing more to protect its iPhone users' privacy — and voila. Within minutes, Apple announced it would be doing more to ensure that app developers can't access users' address books without their permission (something was already in its developer guidelines). Google announced later that day it would be taking similar measures with its Android platform.
As PandoDaily's Greg Kumparak wrote, this was a common practice that was simply understood among developers to be just fine, even though it was against Apple's guidelines, Lipitor For Sale. Lipitor images, Now that it's been called out very publicly as not being just fine at all, developers need to figure out where to go from here. Kumparak reminded developers that address book data isn't theirs to begin with, and Om Malik of GigaOM urged them to consider the moral imperative, rather than just what's allowed. Developer Matt Gemmell showed how to use app address book data without violating users' privacy.
A bizarre quasi-journalistic side-story rose out of this issue after the New York Times' Nick Bilton complained of the alarming obliviousness that Path and Silicon Valley in general show toward the seriousness of user privacy and security, Lipitor australia, uk, us, usa. Both Michael Arrington and MG Siegler Lipitor For Sale, , former TechCrunch-ers whose CrunchFund invests in Path, ripped Bilton's post, with Siegler turning it into a diatribe against the vapidity in tech blogging resulting from an out-of-control preoccupation with speed and page views.
Of the many responses to Siegler's piece, Newsweek tech editor Dan Lyons' was the most severe, as he described TechCrunch and several other tech blogs as a racket to extract "investment" out of venture capitalists in exchange for good press about their startups. (If you want to go all the way down the rabbit hole, you can read Arrington and Siegler's rebuttals.)
Frederic Lardinois of Silicon Filter said both the pageview-chasing and VC coziness are serious problems within tech journalism, but there are still plenty of tech outfits staying above the fray and doing solid work. Lipitor interactions, And ReadWriteWeb's Scott Fulton urged tech bloggers to step outside the tech-journalism bubble and refocus on what journalism is: "Journalism is not about being an expert in twenty different things. It's about being interested in all of them, knowing how to ask questions, and how to elicit information from the answers."
AP goes on the copyright offensive: Another skirmish in the long war between traditional news organizations and online aggregators began this week, as the AP sued Meltwater News, a Norwegian company that helps businesses track mentions of themselves in media sources through a searchable database. The AP alleges that Meltwater uses its content without paying for licensing fees, order Lipitor no prescription, allowing it to create a cheaper service that directly takes subscribers from the AP, as an AP attorney told the Guardian. The attorney also told paidContent that the AP hopes that controversial "hot news doctrine," which gives publishers legal rights over the dissemination of news they break, will be applied to this case, Lipitor For Sale.
According to the AP's article on the suit, the AP is distinguishing between Meltwater and online aggregators because Meltwater charges a fee and keeps a five-year database of AP stories (aggregators do neither of these). But GigaOM's Mathew Ingram said this case could still very well apply to online aggregators and represents a "fundamentally futile" approach to online content.

News sites lag in advertising: Pew's Project for Excellence in Journalism released a study this week that painted a really depressing picture of advertising at top news websites. Among the major findings: In-house ads are the most common kind of ads on news websites, very few news sites do any targeted advertising based on users' online behavior, and very few do work with any ads other than static banner ads, either.
PaidContent's Jeff Roberts pointed out Lipitor For Sale, that most news orgs are at a major disadvantage when it comes to selling digital ads in that they weren't raised on it like tech companies have been, and thus need to constantly play catch-up when it comes to strategies and software. And Forbes' Jeff Bercovici chastised print-based news orgs for using so much of their digital advertising space to promote their print product, saying, where can i buy Lipitor online, "it’s hard to see how publishers are ever going to persuade marketers to spend real money on their websites as long as those advertisers can see those publishers treating their own web inventory as next to worthless."
Reading roundup: A couple of other interesting stories this week, plus some pieces to look at over the weekend:
— It's been a rough couple of months for PolitiFact. This week, it ruled Sen. Marco Rubio's statement that a majority of Americans are conservative "mostly true" because a plurality of Americans are conservative. Lipitor schedule, The decision got ripped by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, the Washington Post's Erik Wemple, Politico's Dylan Byers, the American Journalism Review's Rem Rieder, and j-prof Jay Rosen. They also fact-checked a statement from "Glee," which was...odd, Lipitor For Sale.
— Another media organization under fire lately has been the Philadelphia Media Network, the parent company of the Inquirer and Daily News. The papers were put on the block a few weeks back, and may be sold to a group led by former Philly mayor and Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell. This week, the company announced layoffs and buyouts, and over the past two weeks, both WHYY and the New York Times have reported that executives have interfered with stories about the sale. Former Daily News reporter Buzz Bissinger lamented the papers' future.
— A couple of pieces on online content that are a worth a read: Reuters' Felix Salmon expressed his skepticism about the widespread viability of longform articles online, and here at the Lab, j-prof Dan Kennedy reported on the comment conundrum at Connecticut's New Haven Independent and why it matter for other news sites.

The web flexes its political muscle: After a couple of months of growing concern, the online backlash against the anti-piracy bills SOPA and PIPA reached a rather impressive peak this week. There’s a lot of moving parts to this, so I’ll break it down into three parts: the arguments for and against the bill, the status of the bill, and this week’s protests.
The bills’ opponents have covered a wide variety of arguments over the past few months, but there were still a few more new angles this week in the arguments against SOPA. NYU prof Clay Shirky put the bill in historical context in a 14-minute TED talk, about Diflucan, and social-media researcher danah boyd parsed out both the competitive and cultural facets of piracy. At the Harvard Business Review, James Allworth and Maxwell Wessel framed the issue as a struggle between big content companies and smaller innovators. The New York Times asked six contributors for their ideas about viable SOPA alternatives in fighting piracy, and at Slate, Matthew Yglesias argued that piracy actually has some real benefits for society and the entertainment industry, Buy Diflucan No Prescription.
The most prominent SOPA supporter on the web this week was News Corp.’s Rupert Murdoch, who went on a Twitter rant against SOPA opponents and Google in particular, reportedly after seeing a Google TV presentation in which the company said it wouldn’t remove links in search to illegal movie streams. Diflucan samples, Both j-prof Jeff Jarvis and GigaOM’s Mathew Ingram responded that Murdoch doesn’t understand how the Internet works, with Jarvis arguing that Murdoch isn’t opposed so much to piracy as the entire architecture of the web. At the Guardian, however, Dan Gillmor disagreed with the idea that Murdoch doesn’t get the web, saying that he and other big-media execs know exactly the threat it represents to their longstanding control of media content.
Now for the status of the bill itself: Late last week, SOPA was temporarily weakened and delayed, my Diflucan experience, as its sponsor, Lamar Smith, said he would remove domain-name blocking until the issue has been “studied,” and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said he won’t bring the bill to the House floor until some real consensus about the bill can be found. Buy Diflucan No Prescription, That consensus became a bit less likely this week, after the White House came out forcefully against SOPA and PIPA, calling for, as Techdirt described it, a “hard reset” on the bills. The real blow to the bills came after Wednesday’s protests, when dozens of members of Congress announced their opposition and, Diflucan online cod, this morning, both SOPA and PIPA were indefinitely postponed.
But easily the biggest news surrounding SOPA and PIPA this week was the massive protests of it around the web. Hundreds of sites, including such heavyweights as Wikipedia, Reddit, Mozilla, BoingBoing, australia, uk, us, usa, and WordPress, blacked out on Wednesday, and other sites such as Google and Wired joined with “censored” versions of their home pages. As I noted above, the protest was extremely successful politically, as some key members of Congress backed off their support of the bill, Diflucan without prescription, leading The New York Times to call it a “political coming of age” for the tech industry.
The most prominent of those protesting sites was Wikipedia, which redirected site users to an anti-SOPA action page on Wednesday, Buy Diflucan No Prescription. Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales’ announcement of the protest was met with derision in some corners, with Twitter CEO Dick Costolo and PandoDaily’s Paul Carr chastising the global site for doing something so drastic in response to a single national issue. Walesdefended the decision by saying that the law will affect web users around the world, and he also got support from writers like Mathew Ingram and the Atlantic’s Alexis Madrigal, who argued that Wikipedia and Google’s protests could help take the issue out of the tech community and into the mainstream.
The New York Times’ David Pogue was put off by some aspects of the SOPA outrage and argued that some of the bill’s opposition grew out of a philosophy that was little more than, “Don’t take my free stuff!” And ReadWriteWeb’s Joe Brockmeier was concerned about what happens after the protest is over, online Diflucan without a prescription, when Congress goes back to business as usual and the public remains largely in the dark about what they’re doing. “Even if SOPA goes down in flames, it’s not over. It’s never over,” he wrote.
Apple’s bid to reinvent the textbook Buy Diflucan No Prescription, : Apple announced yesterday its plans to add educational publishing to the many industries it’s radically disrupted, through its new iBooks and iBooks Author systems. Wired’s Tim Carmody, who’s been consistently producing the sharpest stuff on this subject, Buy no prescription Diflucan online, has the best summary of what Apple’s rolling out: A better iBooks platform, a program (iBooks Author) allowing authors to design their own iBooks, textbooks in the iBookstore, and a classroom management app called iTunes U.
After news of the announcement was broken earlier this week by Ars Technica, the Lab’s Joshua Benton explained some of the reasons the textbook industry is ripe for disruption and wondered about the new tool’s usability. (Afterward, he listed some of the change’s implications, Diflucan class, including for the news industry.) Tim Carmody, meanwhile, gave some historical perspective on Steve Jobs’ approach to education reform.
As Carmody detailed after the announcement, education publishing is a big business for Apple to come crashing into. But The Atlantic’s Megan Garber explained that that isn’t exactly what Apple’s doing here; instead, it’s simply “identifying transformative currents and building the right tools to navigate them.” Still, Reuters’ Jack Shafer asserted that what’s bad for these companies is good for readers like him, Buy Diflucan No Prescription.
But while Apple talked about reinventing the textbook, Diflucan pics, several observers didn’t see revolutionary changes around the corner. ReadWriteWeb’s John Paul Titlow noted that Apple is teaming up with big publishers, not killing them, and Paul Carr of PandoDaily argued that iBook Author’s self-made ebooks won’t challenge the professionally produced and marketed ones. All Things Digital’s Peter Kafka did the math to show the publishers should still get plenty of the new revenue streams.
The news still brought plenty of concerns: At CNET, Lindsey Turrentine wondered how many schools will have the funds to afford the hardware for iBooks, and David Carnoy and Scott Stein questioned how open Apple’s new platforms would be, Diflucan alternatives. Buy Diflucan No Prescription, That theme was echoed elsewhere, especially by developer Dan Wineman, who found that through its user agreement, Apple will essentially assert rights to anything produced with its iBooks file format. That level of control gave some, like GigaOM’s Mathew Ingram, pause, but Paul Carr said we shouldn’t be surprised: This is what Apple does, he said, and we all buy its products anyway. Diflucan maximum dosage, —
Making ‘truth vigilantes’ mainstream: The outrage late last week over New York Times public editor Arthur Brisbane’s column asking whether the paper’s reporters should challenge misleading claims by officials continued to yield thoughtful responses this week. After his column last week voicing his support for journalism’s “truth vigilantes,” j-prof Robert Niles created a site to honor them, pointing out instances in which reporters call out their sources for lying. Salon’s Gene Lyons, meanwhile, said that attitudes like Brisbane’s are a big part of what’s led to the erosion of trust in the Times and the mainstream press.
The two sharpest takes on the issue this week came from The Atlantic’s Conor Friedersdorf and from Columbia Ph.D, Buy Diflucan No Prescription. student Lucas Graves here at the Lab, Diflucan recreational. Friedersdorf took on journalists’ argument that people should read the news section for unvarnished facts and the opinion section for analysis: That argument doesn’t work, he said, because readers don’t consume a publication as a bundle anymore.
Graves analyzed the issue in light of both the audience’s expectations for news and the growth of the fact-checking movement. He argued for fact-checking to be incorporated into journalists’ everyday work, rather than remaining a specialized form of journalism. Reuters’ Felix Salmon agreed, Purchase Diflucan online no prescription, asserting that “the greatest triumph of the fact-checking movement will come when it puts itself out of work, because journalists are doing its job for it as a matter of course.” At the Lab, Craig Newmark of Craigslist also chimed in, prescribing more rigorous fact-checking efforts as a way for journalists to regain the public’s trust.
— There was one major development on the ongoing News Corp. phone hacking case: The company settled 36 lawsuits by victims, admitting a cover-up of the hacking. Here’s the basic story from Reuters and more in-depth live coverage from the Guardian, what is Diflucan.
— Rolling Stone published a long, wide-ranging interview with WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange as he awaits his final extradition hearing. Reuters’ Jack Shafer also wrote a thoughtful piece on the long-term journalistic implications of WikiLeaks, focusing particularly on the continued importance of institutions.
— Two interesting pieces of journalism-related research: Slate’s Farhad Manjoo described a Facebook-based study that throws some cold water on the idea of the web as a haven for like-minded echo chambers, and the Lab’s Andrew Phelps wrote about a study that describes and categorizes the significant group people who stumble across news online.
— In a thorough feature, Nick Summers of Newsweek/The Daily Beast laid out the concerns over how big ESPN is getting, and whether that’s good for ESPN itself and sports media in general.
— Finally, for those thinking about how to develop the programmer-journalists of the future, j-prof Matt Waite has a set of thoughts on the topic that functions as a great jumping-off point for more ideas and discussion.

Growing tension at News Corp.: We'll be hearing the news from News Corp.'s annual shareholder meeting later today, and media observers are certainly watching the meeting closely, especially after reports late last week that numerous groups representing about a quarter of the company's investors are planning on voting against many of News Corp.'s board members.
The list of problems at News Corp. has continued to lengthen over the past three months, What is Synthroid, and an analyst interviewed by NPR's David Folkenflik asserted that in an ordinary company, the board would have fired the CEO by now. But Rupert Murdoch, of course, is no ordinary CEO. But even in the close-knit top leadership of News Corp., this scandal is leading to significant tension between Murdoch and his son, James, who was until recently the company's heir apparent, Synthroid Dosage. A New York Times report this week gave details of the power struggles in the Murdoch family, and Reuters' Jack Shafer pointed out that public family squabbles aren't new for the Murdochs.
Both media analyst Alan Mutter and the Guardian's Dan Gillmor were doubtful, after Synthroid, however, that the complaints of investors would make any sort of difference in the way News Corp. is run, especially since Murdoch has a 40% share in the company. "As long as Rupert Murdoch is in control, there are only two factors that will lead to change: a genuine threat to his family's money and power, Purchase Synthroid online, " Gillmor said. Synthroid Dosage, Without those threats, he argued, shareholders aren't going to see a change in direction.
And amid all of this, News Corp.'s various scandals continue to play out publicly. On the phone-hacking front, an attorney who did work for News Corp. told Parliament that he knew the company had misled Parliament about the extent of the hacking but did nothing about it.
And on the Wall Street Journal's circulation inflation, News Corp. reportedly knew about the issue almost a year before its executive resigned over it, Synthroid coupon, and Poynter's Steve Myers found that WSJ Asia also relies heavily on deeply discounted issues. But the Journal isn't the only one that relies on those discounted circulation ploys: The Guardian's Roy Greenslade noted that three major U.K, Synthroid Dosage. papers do, and Poynter's Rick Edmonds said some U.S. papers do as well. Media analyst Frederic Filloux warned of the effects of this kind of culture of cheating: "such tricks push prices further down because media buyers increasingly distrust the system. Today, Synthroid from canada, they apply the rule 'you cheat, we cut prices'. And the downward spiral continues."
Getting identity right online Synthroid Dosage, : Google+ announced a big change in its policies this week, giving word that it will soon amend its real-names-only rule to allow pseudonyms.
