Rethinking political fact-checking: PolitiFact, the fact-checking organization launched in 2007 by the St. Petersburg Times,named its lie of the year this week, Flagyl interactions, and the choice wasn't a popular one: The Democratic claim that Republicans voted to end Medicare was widely denounced among liberal observers (and some conservative ones) as not actually being a lie. As the Washington Monthly's Steve Benen noted, the Medicare claim only finished third in PolitiFact's reader voting behind two Republican lies, leading to the widespread belief, as Benen and the New York Times' Paul Krugman expressed, that PolitiFact chose a Democratic claim this year to create an appearance of balance and placate its conservative critics who believe it's biased against them.
This sort of liberal/conservative bias sniping goes on all the time in political media, canada, mexico, india, but this issue got a bit more interesting from a future-of-news perspective when it became an entree into a discussion of the purpose of the burgeoning genre of "fact-checking" news itself. At Mother Jones, Adam Serwer argued that the reason fact-checking sites exist in the first place is as a correction to the modern sense of news objectivity as a false sense of balance, as opposed to determining the truth — something he said even the fact-checking sites are now succumbing to, Purchase Flagyl.
Several others decried fact-checking operations as being, as Salon's Glenn Greenwald put it, a "scam of neutral expertise." Forbes' John McQuaid said PolitiFact "is trying to referee a fight that, frankly, Flagyl from canadian pharmacy, doesn't really need a referee." Gawker's Jim Newell was more sweeping: "why does anyone care what this gimmicky website has to say, ever?" He argued that fact-checking sites' designations like "pants on fire" and "Pinocchios" are easily digestible gimmicks that lend them a false air of authority, obscuring their flaws in judgment. And the Washington Post's Ezra Klein called the fact-checking model "unsustainable," because it relies on maintaining legitimacy in the eyes of both sides of a hopelessly fractured public.
At The New Republic, Alec MacGillis made the point that fact-checking "invests far too much weight and significance in a handful of arbiters who, Flagyl photos, every once in a while, will really blow a big call." Instead, he said, fact-checking should be the job of every reporter, not just a specialized few. Ordering Flagyl online, Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post's "Fact Checker," responded by saying operations like his aren't intended to be referees or replace reporting, but to complement it. PolitiFact's Bill Adair stood by the organization's choice and said fact-checking "is growing and thriving because people who live outside the partisan bubbles want help sorting out the truth."
An abrupt change at the Times Purchase Flagyl, : New York Times Co. CEO Janet Robinson surprised Times staffers late last week with the sudden announcement of her retirement, and some details have trickled out since then: Reuters reported that she'll get a $15 million exit package and that she and company chairman Arthur Sulzberger Jr. clashed at times, buying Flagyl online over the counter, and the Wall Street Journal reported (paywall) that much of the dissatisfaction with Robinson was over her digital strategy. The Atlantic's Adam Clark Estes summed up the reporting and speculation on Robinson's forced departure by saying that she didn't get along with her bosses, and the Times felt it needed a technologist.
With no successor in sight, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram gave the blueprint of what he would do with the paper: Scale back the paywall, Order Flagyl from mexican pharmacy, and go deeper into apps, events, and e-books. CUNY j-prof Jeff Jarvis proposed a "reverse meter" for the Times — pay up front, then get credit for reading and interacting that delays your next bill. He acknowledged that it wouldn't work in practice, but said it illustrates the idea that paywalls should reward loyal customers, not punish them, Purchase Flagyl. Ingram picked up on the idea and threw out a few more possibilities.
In reality, the Times is in the process of making quite a different set of moves: It's talking about selling off its 16 regional newspapers, not including the Boston Globe, order Flagyl online c.o.d. Media analyst Ken Doctor broke down the development, explaining that the Times Co. is slimming down its peripheral ventures to focus on the Times itself, particularly its digital operation. Poynter's Rick Edmonds said the possible deal marks a thaw Purchase Flagyl, in the newspaper transaction market.
Looking back and forward for news: We're getting into the year-in-review season, Buy Flagyl online no prescription, and Pew's Project for Excellence in Journalism has started it off by releasing its annual analysis of the year's media coverage. They found that this year, just like 2010, was dominated by coverage of the economy, though the Occupy movement emerged as a strong subtheme, and foreign news was a major area of coverage, thanks in large part to the Arab Spring movements, order Flagyl from United States pharmacy. They also examined media coverage in comparison with public interest, finding that journalists moved on from big stories more quickly than the public.
The Lab went big with its year-end feature, publishing more than a dozen predictions for the news world in 2012 from a variety of news and tech luminaries. You can check out that link for the whole list, but here are a few of the trends across the predictions:
— Apps. Nicholas Carr predicted that "appification" would be the dominant force influencing media and news media next year, opening new arenas for paid content, particularly through "versioning." Tim Carmody said e-readers will take a big leap at the same time, led by Amazon's Kindle. Amy Webb predicted the rise of several sophisticated types of apps, and Gina Masullo Chen envisioned our apps leading us into a more personalized news consumption environment, Purchase Flagyl.
— Big institutions make a stand. Flagyl use, It may be in a continued state of decline, as Martin Langeveld predicted, but Dan Kennedy saw the beginnings of a semi-revival for the newspaper business, accompanied by more paywalls and an feistier defense of their value. On a more ominous front, Dan Gillmor warned of tightening content controls by an oligopoly of copyright holders, government forces, Flagyl pictures, search engines, and others.
— Collaboration and curation. Emily Bell saw an increasing realization by news organizations of the importance of networks as part of the reporting process, Burt Herman described the continued emergence of a real-time, collaborative news network, Buy Flagyl from canada, and Paul Bradshaw and Carrie Brown Smith also saw collaboration as central next year. Vadim Lavrusik saw an increasingly sophisticated curation as part of that news environment.
Reading roundup Purchase Flagyl, : This is the last review of the year, so here are the bits and pieces to keep up with during the holidays over the next two weeks:
— Congress' hearings on the Internet censorship bill SOPA adjourned last Friday, with the vote delayed until next year. Cable news finally began acknowledging the story, and the document company Scribd staging an online protest. Techdirt's Mike Masnick continued to write about the bill's dangers, looking at the ability it gives private companies to shut down any website and the way it sets up the legal framework for broader censorship.
— The Wall Street Journal reported on the continued high prices of e-books, a trend that drew criticism from GigaOM's Mathew Ingram and paidContent's Laura Hazard Owen, Flagyl dangers. Elsewhere, Slate's Farhad Manjoo and Wired's Tim Carmody engaged in an interesting discussion about Amazon and independent bookstore — Manjoo praised Amazon for putting independent bookstores into decline, Carmody argued that Amazon has its eyes on a bigger prize, and Manjoo talked about how independent bookstores can fight back.
— A big development in the WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning cases: Wired reported that U.S, Purchase Flagyl. government officials found chat logs with WikiLeaks' Julian Assange on the laptop of Manning, Cheap Flagyl, the Army private charged with leaking information to WikiLeaks. This could be critical in the U.S.' possible prosecution of Assange if the logs show that he induced Manning to leak the documents.
— The Journal Register Co.'s Steve Buttry wrote a series of posts on the practical details of the company's Digital First approach, looking at its journalistic workflow, values, editor's roles, and ways to think like a digital journalist. Meanwhile, Mashable's Lauren Indvik looked at the Atlantic's transformation into a Digital First publication.
— Some great discussion about solution-oriented journalism this week: David Bornstein made a case for solution journalism at the New York Times, and Free Press' Josh Stearns put together a fantastic set of readings on solution journalism. NYU grad student Blair Hickman also shared a syllabus for a solution journalism unit.

Do institutions have a place in news innovation?: About three weeks after Dean Starkman's indictment of future-of-news thinkers was posted online by the Columbia Journalism Review, NYU professor Clay Shirky — one of the primary targets of the piece — delivered a response late last week in the form of a thoughtful essay on the nature of institutions and the news industry. Shirky explained the process by which institutions can lapse into rigidity and blindness to their threats, and he argued that there's no way to preserve newspapers' most important institutional qualities in the digital age, buy Glucophage from mexico, so the only option left is radical innovation.
Several observers — of a future-of-news orientation themselves — jumped in to echo Shirky's point. The Journal Register Co.'s Steve Buttry praised Shirky for waiting and reflecting rather than responding immediately, and media consultant Steve Yelvington seconded Shirky's point that all this talk about traditional journalistic models being overwhelmed by a decentralized, Effects of Glucophage, audience-focused digital tidal wave is descriptive, not prescriptive — not necessarily the way things should be, but simply the way they are.
Howard Owens of the Batavian took the middle ground, declaring that evolution, not revolution, is the standard vehicle for change in journalism and laying a model for sustainable local journalism that focuses on local ownership, startups, and innovation, Glucophage For Sale. In the end, Owens wrote, online journalism will evolve and survive. "It will find ways to make more and more money to pay for more and more journalism. The audience is there for it, Glucophage wiki, local businesses will always want to connect with that audience, and entrepreneurial minded people will find ways to put the pieces together."
The Atlantic's Alexis Madrigal raised a good point in the discussion about how to preserve serious journalism: He argued that the primary obstacle won't be so much about paying for journalists to cover important public-affairs issues, but about finding a way for that news to reach a substantial percentage of the population in a given area. That "amplification" problem may be tough to solve, Fast shipping Glucophage, but could be relatively easy to scale once that initial solution is found.
Paywalls picking up steam among smaller papers: Now that the New York Times has bravely served as a paywall guinea pig for the rest of America's newspapers (apparently successfully, judging from the indicators we have so far), we're starting to see more of the nation's mid-sized papers announce online pay plans of their own. This week, Gannett, Glucophage used for, the U.S.' largest newspaper chain, revealed that it would be expanding its paywalls to more of its papers sometime next year. According to the Gannett Blog Glucophage For Sale, , the company began experimenting with paywalls at three newspapers last year, and while we don't know much of anything about those projects, it appears Gannett is pleased enough with them to build out on that model.
The Chicago Sun-Times also announced a paywall to begin this week: It'll follow the increasingly popular metered model employed by the Financial Times and New York Times, allowing 20 page views per 30-day period before asking for $6.99 a month ($1.99 for print subscribers). Buy generic Glucophage, PaidContent noted that the plan is being run by Press+ (the system created by Steve Brill's former Journalism Online) and that Roger Ebert has been exempted from the paywall.
We also got a couple of updates from existing newspaper paywalls: MinnPost reported that the Minneapolis Star Tribune has come out ahead so far in its new paywall, generating an estimated $800,000 in subscriptions while losing a five-figure total of advertising dollars. And PaidContent reported that three paywalled MediaNews Group papers (now run by John Paton of the Journal Register Co.) have killed their Monday print editions, with a corresponding drop of their online paywall on those days, Glucophage samples.
Is this blogger a journalist?: Just when you thought the "Are bloggers journalists?" discussion was completely played out, it got some new life this week when an Oregon judge ruled that a blogger being sued for $2.5 million in a defamation case wasn't protected by the state's media shield law because she wasn't a journalist, Glucophage For Sale. As Seattle Weekly initially reported, the judge reasoned that she wasn't a journalist because she wasn't affiliated with any "newspaper, magazine, periodical, What is Glucophage, book, pamphlet, news service, wire service, news or feature syndicate, broadcast station or network, online Glucophage without a prescription, or cable television system."
This type of ruling typically gets bloggers (and a lot of journalists) riled up, and rightly so. Mathew Ingram of GigaOM gave some great context regarding state-by-state shield laws, noting that several other recent rulings have defined who's a journalist much more broadly than this judge did. Online buying Glucophage, These types of distinctions based on institutional affiliation are attempts to hold back a steadily rising tide, he argued.
On the other hand, Forbes' Kashmir Hill described some of the case's background that seemed to indicate that this particular blogger was much more intent on defamation than performing journalism, creating dozens of sites to dominate the search results for the company she was attacking, then emailing the company to offer $2, Glucophage australia, uk, us, usa,500/mo. Glucophage For Sale, online reputation management. Hill concluded, "Yes, bloggers are journalists. Glucophage dosage, But just because you have a blog doesn’t mean that what you do is journalism." Libertarian writer Julian Sanchez agreed, saying that while the judge's ruling wasn't well worded, this blogger was not a journalist.
Facebook's new tools: A few Facebook-related notes: The social network began rolling out Timeline, the graphical life-illustration feature it announced back in September this week, starting in New Zealand, Glucophage cost. It also briefly, vaguely announced plans to extend its Twitter-like Subscribe button into a plugin for websites, a move that TechCrunch said signifies that "the company is directly attacking the entire Twitter model head-on." Cory Bergman of Lost Remote urged news orgs to get on the Subscribe bandwagon as soon as they can, as a way to extend their journalists' brands.
Meanwhile, news business consultant Alan Mutter laid out a basic plan for publishers to not just gain audience on Facebook, but make money there, too, Glucophage For Sale. Glucophage pics, The key element of that plan may be a surprising one: "The most intriguing and perhaps most productive approach for making money off Facebook, however, is for newspapers to take over the social media marketing and advertising campaigns for businesses in their markets."
Reading roundup: Pretty slow week this week, but there were a few smaller stories worth keeping an eye on:
— As a sort of sequel to the Huffington Post's OffTheBus effort in the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign, Jay Rosen and NYU's Studio 20 are partnering with the Guardian to determine and cover "the citizens' agenda" in the 2012 election, Glucophage brand name. Rosen and NYU will also be working with MediaNews and the Journal Register Co. on the local and regional level. Glucophage For Sale, At the Lab, Megan Garber explained what's behind the initiative.
— The American Journalism Review published a piece on the journalistic ethics of retweeting that included news that the Oregonian is telling its reporters to consider all retweets as endorsements. The Journal Register Co.'s Steve Buttry rounded up (appalled) reaction and argued that editors should consider each case individually.
— Ten NBC-owned TV stations in Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles will work with nonprofit news orgs (public radio in LA and Philly, and the Chicago Reporter and ProPublica) in a new initiative first reported by the LA Times.
— The popular iPad news aggregation app Flipboard launched for iPhone this week, and Poynter's Jeff Sonderman drew lessons on mobile design for news orgs from it.
— The New York Times reported that most of the pack of would-be iPad competitors in the tablet market have fizzled out, though the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet have gotten off to promising starts.
— Here at the Lab, longtime newspaper editor Tom Stites is in the midst of an interesting three-part series on the state of web journalism. Part one is a good overview of where we are and where we want to go, and part two looks at the wide-ranging effects of layoffs and cuts into local journalism.

Google+ courts businesses: After banning businesses for its first four months, Google+ finally let them in this week, launching Google+ Pages, which gives accounts to business and groups. (Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land put together the best walkthrough of what Pages are and how they work.) Businesses jumped right in, including, About Cephalexin, of course, news orgs: Breaking News put together a running list of news Pages, and one Fox News show announced it would do Hangouts with presidential candidates, starting with Mitt Romney next week.
As Business Insider explained, Google has a big carrot to draw businesses in: Direct Connect, which allows users to go directly to a business's Google+ Page if they the business's name preceded by a "+". Lost Remote's Cory Bergman (who also runs the Breaking News Google+ account) said businesses should also get some SEO mojo from users clicking +1 on their Google+ account, which he argued was enough of a payoff to justify maintaining a Google+ account — at least for now, Cephalexin over the counter, anyway.
Social media guru Robert Scoble, on the other hand, was disappointed in Pages, calling them clumsy and difficult to manage, Cephalexin For Sale. Fast Company's Mark Wilson brought up the same point and added that since Google gives individuals two options of how to engage with businesses instead of Facebook's single "Like," most people will choose the weaker option. TechCrunch's Jason Kincaid wondered what exactly that weaker option, giving the business a +1, will do.
For Slate's Farhad Manjoo, Doses Cephalexin work, the addition of Pages was too little, too late for Google+. He declared the social network dead, a victim of Google's launch-then-fix-it model that has worked so well for most of its products. "But a social network isn’t a product; it’s a place Cephalexin For Sale, ," Manjoo wrote, arguing that Google should have let its users be more free to experiment to make up for its initial deficits. Mathew Ingram of GigaOM and the New York Times' Nick Bilton countered that it's too soon to give up on the network, because Google+ is designed to be not just another social network, but instead the connective tissue integrating an entire way to experience the web. Google has some pretty good cards still its hand that can help it reach that goal, too, he said.
Romenesko, attribution, and hair-splitting: Jim Romenesko, the dean of media bloggers soon to semi-retire from the Poynter Institute, was pushed into a bizarre little controversy yesterday when his editor, Cephalexin without prescription, Julie Moos, wrote a post taking him to task for "incomplete attribution" in his posts — essentially, using language from the posts he's summarizing (and linking to) without putting it in quote marks. Moos wrote the post in response to questions from the Columbia Journalism Review as it develops an article on the subject.
Romenesko wasn't asked to resign (he offered his resignation twice but Moos rejected it), but he will have to follow stricter attribution guidelines and have his posts edited before they go up. 10, Is Cephalexin addictive, 000 Words' Elena Zak praised Poynter's transparency, but to most observers, this was ethical hairsplitting run amok.
Media consultant Mark Potts hit many of the main points in his defense of Romenesko, noting that no one has complained to Poynter about this in the decade he's been blogging for them. Reuters' Felix Salmon pointed to Romenesko's stature in the blogosphere and his role in establishing the field's norms: "If your guidelines go against what Jim is doing, then there might well be something wrong with your guidelines."
The Awl's Choire Sicha took the opportunity to level a more serious charge at Poynter's handling of Romenesko's blog, saying that "Poynter has worked systematically to erode a fairly noble, not particularly money-making thing as it works to boost 'engagement'" and other online-media buzzwords, Cephalexin For Sale. For his part, Romenesko himself expressed his frustration in typically understated fashion in an email to the New York Times, then tweeted that "I feel it's time to go."
Is future-of-news talk hurting journalism?: This week, we got the rare opportunity to have a substantive, big-picture (meta)discussion about the way we think about the future of news when the Columbia Journalism Review published a thorough critique by Dean Starkman of 'future of news' thinkers like Jeff Jarvis, Clay Shirky, Cephalexin alternatives, and Jay Rosen.
The piece is quite long, but worth a close read: In short, Starkman argued that these thinkers are undermining the most valuable form of journalism — public-service journalism — by disempowering journalists and their institutions and by wasting their limited time (and the public's) with endless, mostly useless experimentation and busywork. Instead, Starkman proposed a model built around maintaining journalism's most valued institutions, Buy Cephalexin without a prescription, arguing that "journalism needs its own institutions for the simple reason that it reports on institutions much larger than itself."
Several people objected to Starkman's argument, starting with media strategist Terry Heaton, who countered that it's not institutions the future-of-news people have a problem with, but hierarchical institutions, and former Wall Street Journal writer Jason Fry, who said that some forms of news are indeed a commodity. A few others, like Mathew Ingram of GigaOM and Steve Buttry of the Journal Register Co. Cephalexin For Sale, argued that deep reporting vs. new media mastery isn't an either/or proposition, Cephalexin no prescription, pointing to examples of news organizations like the Guardian who do both well.
Former Guardian digital editor Emily Bell also wrote about her old paper's efforts in making a similar point, arguing that the spirit of muckraking is being carried on in these digital, networked initiatives. "The opening of electronic ears and eyes is not a replacement for reporting. It should be at the heart of it. And if it is not, then the institutions that Starkman laments might be to blame," she wrote, Cephalexin For Sale. Starkman responded by arguing that it all boils down to stories, Cephalexin maximum dosage, but the future-of-news folks want to talk about something else, and here at the Lab, C.W. Anderson weighed in on with a smart post on the ways in which institutions can be forces for both good and ill.
A force for digital change in the newsroom: The New York Times announced this week the retirement (effective the end of the year) of one of the pioneers of news on the web — Martin Nisenholtz, a senior vice president at the paper. As the Times noted, Nisenholtz has been intimately involved in just about every major technological initiative the Times has undertaken since he came on board in 1995: Launching the website, moving it into mobile media and tablets, Cephalexin description, and instituting its paywall earlier this year.
Poynter's Julie Moos put together a greatest-hits of commentary Cephalexin For Sale, by and about Nisenholtz over the years, including his prediction in early 2004 that smart phones would be a particularly influential force in changing news delivery. PaidContent's Staci Kramer talked about his lasting impact: No matter how slow (or fast) the transition seemed, "the NYT has an integrated newsroom with an understanding that digital, while it may not always be first, is equal."
Dave Winer, who helped create RSS, pointed out that Nisenholtz made the Times the first major publisher to license its stories for RSS, Cephalexin images, making a significant contribution to the growth of the open web in the process. The Lab's Joshua Benton used that story to illustrate thateven if news orgs can't invent these transformative web tools, they can still play a big role in their evolution and adoption. Media prof C.W. Anderson also noted another contribution Nisenholtz made — by allowing a scholar access to study his paper's digital efforts, he helped revitalize the field of digital media sociology.
A neutral way to tweet: If a few of the most recent sets of social media guidelines are any indication, news organizations are really struggling with the concept of their journalists' retweets on Twitter, Cephalexin For Sale. Several of those organizations have asked journalists not to retweet opinionated content without comment, lest they be thought of as biased themselves. Poynter's Jeff Sonderman tried to resolve that problem with an idea for an NT, Cephalexin from mexico, or neutral tweet, which people could use to retweet something while declaring their neutrality about it.
Most journalism folks on Twitter didn't like the idea, as Sonderman himself showed in his fine roundup of reaction. Many of them saw it as a way to avoid interacting naturally on Twitter, a "pacifier" or "high tech milquetoast," in the words of j-profs Jay Rosen and Matt Waite. Cephalexin For Sale, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram expanded on the idea, calling it a solution to the wrong problem. "By pretending that their journalists don’t have opinions, when everyone knows that they do, mainstream media outlets are suggesting their viewers or readers are too stupid to figure out where the truth lies," he wrote. Buy no prescription Cephalexin online, —
Reading roundup: Lots of smaller stories and discussions popping in and out of the future-of-news world this week. Here's a few of them:
— This week in News Corp. scandal: Rupert Murdoch's son, James, told British Parliament he didn't mislead them last time he talked to them. Or, as Gawker put it, he asserted that everyone's a liar except him. The Guardian's Roy Greenslade doesn't believe him, Cephalexin For Sale. Murdoch also said the company might still close its British newspaper, Cephalexin canada, mexico, india, the Sun. And we also found out News of the World hired people to spy on their hacking victims' lawyers. Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger put the scandal in perspective in a lecture.
— New York Times media critic David Carr mused on the decline of WikiLeaks as an organization and its implications for radical transparency as a movement. Dave Winer and Mathew Ingram responded by questioning why the Times hasn't supported WikiLeaks more itself.
— Andy Rooney of CBS' 60 Minutes, one of the icons of American broadcast television, died late last week at age 92. Cephalexin recreational, You can check out the obituaries from CBS and the New York Times, a set of his classic essays at Gawker, and a thoughtful remembrance by tech entrepreneur Anil Dash.
