Journatic and new directions for local news: The hyperlocal news content provider Journatic got caught last week using fake bylines, prompting a discussion about the value and perils of outsourced journalism. Journatic provides hyperlocal content to a variety of publications (especially newspapers) through a network of freelancers. Those freelancers are often not in the area (or even the country) they're writing about, and as a This American Life piece revealed, some of them have also been using fake bylines. Cipro use, At Poynter, Anna Tarkov has the full story of how the Journatic sausage gets made, and Jim Romenesko got responses from Journatic's CEO and the TAL story's producer and main subject.
The Chicago Tribune just outsourced its hyperlocal TribLocal sections to Journatic, and it began investigating Journatic's work for fake bylines. The Chicago Sun-Times, Houston Chronicle, and San Francisco Chronicle also reported fake bylines on Journatic stories in their papers, and the Sun-Times and the newspaper chain GateHouse ended their contracts with Journatic, though GigaOM's Mathew Ingram reported that those contracts expired before the fake-byline story came out, Buy Cipro No Prescription. Journatic's CEO sent a memo rallying the troops and declaring that its aliases would be discontinued, Cipro from canadian pharmacy. By the end of the week, NPR's David Folkenflik summarized the situation and the larger conflict in how to
The revelations pointed toward a larger discussion over how to do the tough work of making local journalism sustainable, summarized well by NPR's David Folkenflik. Northeastern j-prof Dan Kennedy said operations like Journatic's "pink slime journalism" are a function of the fact that local journalism is difficult and expensive to do well, Cipro schedule, though the solution will ultimately come from the bottom up, not from cookie-cutter approaches like this. Free Press, meanwhile, urged us to demand better out of local news. Buy Cipro No Prescription, But others saw outsourced local journalism (though without fake bylines, of course) as a viable part of the future of news: Mathew Ingram also made the point that local journalism is expensive and said centralized and automated news production has to be part of the answer. John Bethune of B2B Memes said the real problem at Journatic was that it was skeuomorphic — trying to make a new form (algorithmic and outsourced content) look like an old one (articles with bylines). "The Journatic screw-up was not a failure of new media, Cipro steet value, but a failure of nerve. New-media practitioners need to have the courage of their convictions, and look, not back, Cipro samples, but steadfastly ahead." Ingram echoed that point, urging an open mind toward Journatic in a follow-up post, and Kennedy responded that "not everything new should be embraced."
Twitter tightens its grip: In a pair of simultaneous posts, Twitter broke off its content-syncing partnership with LinkedIn and served notice to other Twitter third-party developers that the company wouldn't be standing for apps that they feel closely mimic the "core Twitter consumption experience" on their own apps and website. All Things D's Mike Isaac said that it makes sense for Twitter to tighten the reins on its service now that it's growing and wondered how it might affect other partners such as Flipboard. Talking Points Memo's Carl Franzen asked the same thing about several companies whose services are based predominantly or exclusively on Twitter, Cipro from canada.
The Next Web's Matthew Panzarino talked to developers who called Twitter's post "ominous" and suggested the reason Twitter seems to be clamping down on its famously open development system is that it wants to control its advertising stream, Buy Cipro No Prescription. The New York Times' Nick Bilton, meanwhile, pointed out that the core user experience Twitter wants to protect isn't consistent at all between its website and various apps. BuzzFeed's Matt Buchanan said Twitter wants to make all those user experiences consistent, Purchase Cipro for sale, as well as simpler and more dynamic — and in order to do that, it needs total control of the experience.
GigaOM's Mathew Ingram issued a warning to Twitter, noting that it's upset its developer community before, and similar moves have backfired for MySpace and Digg. Tech entrepreneur Dalton Caldwell lamented the fact that Twitter hadn't chosen an API-centric route years ago, buy Cipro online cod, and Ingram explored the question of whether a media company such as Twitter could be both an open platform and a destination.
In another post Buy Cipro No Prescription, , Ingram looked at the feasibility of an open alternative to Twitter, concluding that it would be technically possible, but not likely to draw Twitter's critical mass of users. "In the end, many users don’t really seem to care whether a system or network is open or not — or at least not enough of them to make a difference," he wrote.
Another key piece of this puzzle came at about the same time, when the Wall Street Journal reported that Twitter is finding success selling ads for mobile devices, a platform that has frustrated Facebook and Google's advertising teams. Cipro online cod, The Financial Times likewise reported that Twitter has shifted to a truly mobile-first mindset, and Business Insider's Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry argued that that mobile-first nature, along with the fact that Twitter has the same ads on desktop and mobile, bodes well for Twitter's mobile business.
The future of News Corp.'s papers: We're continuing to see the repercussions from News Corp.'s decision two weeks ago to split into two separate news and entertainment media companies. The Wall Street Journal gave the details of the decision, buy Cipro from mexico, and David Carr of The New York Times explained why Rupert Murdoch had agreed to make the deal — his papers, with the exception of Dow Jones' Wall Street Journal, are declining quickly, and "his long-running romance with print will no longer be indulged just because he’s the boss."
The Times' Amy Chozick noted that the Murdochs are still firmly in control of the two companies (much to the annoyance of some investors), Where can i buy cheapest Cipro online, Peter Jukes of The Daily Beast said the split will hasten the end of the Murdoch dynasty. And though Murdoch praised the potential of his newspapers, The Times reported that without him directly heading the papers up, they're in a particularly vulnerable spot, Buy Cipro No Prescription. Forbes' Jeff Bercovici said the Journal will be well preserved as the company's crown jewel, but the outlook is much worse for the New York Post. The Daily Beast's Alex Klein expected the Journal to be remade in the image of its business news rival, Bloomberg.
Reuters' Felix Salmon focused on the TV side, buy Cipro without prescription, arguing that TV news is more part of the entertainment industry than the news industry, and that print media is converging on the one thing it does well — live breaking news coverage. Ad Age's Jeanine Poggi wondered whether other conglomerates like Time Warner will also spin off their print properties.
CNN's error and process journalism: Media observers also spent some time last week talking about CNN and Fox News' Supreme Court reporting error Buy Cipro No Prescription, , wondering why it happened and what that might mean about the state of news. Poynter's Steve Myers pinned the blame on "process journalism, Buy cheap Cipro no rx, " the philosophy of publishing stories as you piece them together and updating them with corrections. Myers said process journalism makes more sense in breaking news stories, not "appointment" stories like a Supreme Court decision. In a response, process journalism advocate Jeff Jarvis said this wasn't really process journalism, and "The real lesson here is that the scoop is and always has been a dangerous act of journalistic narcissism."
GigaOM's Mathew Ingram agreed with Jarvis on the diminishing value of the scoop and the idea that this wasn't process journalism, discount Cipro, and the Washington Post's Alexandra Petri also said this piece of news wasn't worth a scoop. Mike Masnick of Techdirt argued that this error shouldn't be cited as an indictment of the real-time news era. Poynter's Craig Silverman broke down the error in a bit more detail, attributing it in part to a "collision of complexity and immediacy."
Reading roundup: A few other stories and pieces to get to from the past holiday week:
— WikiLeaks began releasing its 2.4 million Syria-related emails last week, and while it initially named the AP as one of its collaborators, the AP was removed from the collaborator list and insisted it didn't collaborate with WikiLeaks, Buy Cipro No Prescription. The Atlantic's Alexander Abad-Santos questioned how everyone was going to sort through all the documents, and elsewhere, Buy Cipro no prescription, Agence France-Presse explored whether the U.S. has a case against WikiLeaks' Julian Assange.
— The Lab's Justin Ellis wrote an interesting piece looking at The New York Times' new Chinese-language site, but the project's already faced a setback, as its account on the Chinese Twitter-like site Sina Weibo has been shut down.
— Finally, a few cool articles worth reading this weekend: Here at the Lab, Ken Doctor wrote about aggregation apps like Pulse and the way metrics and subscription plans translate into money, and former GOOD magazine editor Ann Friedman offered some wise advice to young journalists and j-school grads. And tech blogger Erick Schonfeld argued that infographics are broken and proposed an alternative way of creating them.

News Corp. undertakes historic split: In a move that's been predicted for at least a year or two, News Corp. took a drastic step this week to try to contain the damage from its phone hacking/bribery scandal by splitting its news and entertainment properties into separate companies. Its news company will include all of its newspapers in Britain, the U.S., and Australia as well as its Dow Jones newswire and HarperCollins book publishing; the entertainment company will include 20th Century Fox, the Fox TV channel, Tramadol trusted pharmacy reviews, Fox News, other cable channels, and BSkyB and other satellite TV properties. The Murdoch family will retain about a 40% share in both companies.
Wall Street loved the idea, with News Corp.'s shares jumping at the news that the company was discussing a split, Tramadol Price. The reason, as The New York Times' Dealbook explained, Tramadol cost, is that it could free News Corp. from what's known as the "Murdoch discount" — the depressed value of the company because of Rupert Murdoch's influence. Splitting news and entertainment, the thinking goes, frees entertainment to make more money without being weighed down by the newspaper division.
That, said Ryan Chittum of the Columbia Journalism Review, might harm the newspapers just as it helps the entertainment properties, Tramadol pics. Tramadol Price, The Guardian's Michael Wolff contended that the newspapers will lose the upside of being tied to the entertainment side, but keep the downside of being tied to Murdoch. As Reuters' Felix Salmon put it, "Up until now, Murdoch has never really needed to worry very much about his newspapers’ profitability, because the rest of his empire was throwing off such enormous profits. That’s going to change." According to Ad Age, though, What is Tramadol, News Corp.'s papers might do better on Wall Street than many others.
Murdoch said the split wasn't related to the phone hacking scandal, but pretty much everyone else found that claim preposterous. As Paul Sawers of The Next Web put it, the cracks from the scandal had spread too far. More specifically, according to the Guardian's Roy Greenslade, this allows News Corp, Tramadol Price. to invest in the properties it finds profitable (entertainment/BSkyB), and dump the liabilities (British newspapers). Here at the Lab, Tramadol dangers, Ken Doctor said the split will work out quite well for the Murdochs — investors will be happier, and Rupert can still play newspaperman while clearing the way for further entertainment domination.
As for what the move means more specifically, paidContent's Staci Kramer has a good rundown of what it means for each division, and she and the Guardian also looked at who might head up each company. Mathew Ingram of GigaOM urged News Corp. to let the content flow freely across platforms, Taking Tramadol, though Murdoch said his newspapers would be pushed even harder to charge for news online.
A Supreme breaking news error Tramadol Price, : The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on the Affordable Care Act on Thursday was the occasion for one of the biggest media gaffes of the year, as CNN and Fox News both initially reported erroneously that the act's individual mandate had been found unconstitutional. Both networks issued statements, though only CNN — whose mistake was more prominently displayed and took longer to correct — could be construed as apologizing. Fox claimed it "reported the facts, as they came in," a statement with which both Poynter's Andrew Beaujon and the Washington Post's Erik Wemple took issue, order Tramadol from mexican pharmacy. (Wemple also objected to CNN's explanation of its error.)
The reaction against CNN in particular was quick and relentless: AP reporters were even ordered to stop taunting via social media. Within CNN, as well, the error was anonymously described to BuzzFeed as "shameful," "outrageous," and "humiliating." Rem Rieder of the American Journalism Review said it was a terribly timed stumble for the struggling CNN, and Wemple admonished, "Someone needs to tell CNN: There is no such thing as fashioning a scoop over something that’s released to the public."
Others put the blame within a broader context: The Huffington Post's Jason Linkins described it as a "There but for the grace of God go I" situation for journalists, and the American Copy Editors Society's Charles Apple called it the product of a too-fast media cycle meeting the constantly changing nature of breaking news, Tramadol Price.
Other news orgs reinforced that emphasis on speed: A Washington Post profile on SCOTUSblog, the top destination for instance Supreme Court analysis, noted the site's obsession with getting the news first. Meanwhile, mainstream news orgs fought over who broke the story first (Andrew Beaujon's answer: it depends), Tramadol coupon, and Rem Rieder said that issue is not only unimportant, but harmful to good journalism.
Flipboard and Pulse's models compete for publishers: The New York Times extended its online pay plan this week to include the aggregation app Flipboard, allowing subscribers to access all the Times content there, while limiting nonsubscribers' access to a few free articles. At All Things D, Peter Kafka pointed out that this is the first time the Flipboard has gotten a major publisher to give it full access to its content there, as well as the first time the Times has given out full access to its content through another platform, get Tramadol. Tramadol Price, Kafka also wondered if Flipboard access is really going to add much for Times subscribers, since they already have access to the Times on just about any device they could want. On the other hand, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram liked the idea as a way to acknowledge new ways users are getting news while maintaining control over the pay plan. Jeff Sonderman of Poynter had a few notes for other news orgs, pointing out the Times' statistic that 20% of its readers use aggregation apps and suggesting that this might be a good option for smaller news orgs that can't afford their own extensive app development. And TechCrunch's Alexia Tsotsis weighed in with an angry, drunk anti-Times post. Tramadol natural, At the same time, though, Conde Nast's Wired and The New Yorker announced they're stepping back from Flipboard, giving up selling ads and pulling most of their content. Publishers told Mashable's Lauren Indvik it's just easier (andm more profitable) to sell ads on their site once Flipboard takes its cut, and paidContent's Jeff John Roberts said Flipboard may need to reconsider its revenue-sharing arrangement with publishers, Tramadol Price.
In addition, a day after the Times announced its Flipboard pay plan, the Wall Street Journal announced a similar plan with one of Flipboard's competitors, Pulse, where to buy Tramadol. The Journal's move was part of a strategy shift by Pulse toward paid subscriptions that the company expects to launch it into profitability. Ingram of GigaOM compared Pulse's subscription-based model (which involves subscription revenue sharing and Flipboard's ad-based model — though both are "competing with their publishing clients even as they try to serve them."
Is BuzzFeed stealing ideas?: BuzzFeed, one of the most popular viral content sites on the web, got some scrutiny this week that raised questions in the ongoing discussion about the validity of online aggregation practices. Slate's Farhad Manjoo looked behind the curtain at where BuzzFeed gets the material for its most popular viral posts and found they mostly come from Reddit, with attribution (possibly systematically) stripped. Philip Bump of Grist said Manjoo didn't go far enough Tramadol Price, in his critique, saying that BuzzFeed isn't just aggregating but stealing ideas. Tramadol recreational, But The Atlantic's Derek Thompson pushed back against the BuzzFeed criticism, comparing their raiding Reddit to movie studios grabbing ideas from bestselling books. "BuzzFeed is a hit-maker making hits the only way reliable hits can be made: By figuring out what's already popular and tweaking them to make something new," he wrote.
Reading roundup: A few other smaller stories going on in the background this week:
— Google formally unveiled a number of new products at a press event this week — a streaming media device called the Nexus Q (powered by other Android devices on the same network); a $199 tablet called the Nexus 7; its much-anticipated augmented-reality glasses, Google Glass; and a tablet app for Google+, among a few other things. For some analysis, here's All Things D on the Nexus Q and Google Glass, Tramadol over the counter.
— This week in paywalls: The Chicago Tribune's redesigned website will require registration for some content, a mechanism designed to transition to paid subscriptions. (It's also including some content from the Economist and Forbes in that plan.) U-T San Diego also launched a metered pay plan, and The New York Times will begin charging for crossword puzzles even outside of its subscriptions. Tramadol no rx, Meanwhile, Gannett said its circulation is down but revenue is up at its paywalled papers, and Steve Outing argued against the metered model.
— Two thought-provoking pieces on reinventing journalism, from different perspectives: The Online Journalism Review's Robert Niles on how to reboot newspapers by breaking up the chains, and Technology Review's Christopher Mims on the red flags in many proposals to reinvent journalism (abandoning the news story, lack of knowledge of the business model, vagueness about the medium), after Tramadol.
— Finally, some great pieces here at the Lab this week: An interesting post by Jonathan Stray on how our perception plays into news bias, Clay Shirky on the importance of Gawker's innovation in commenting, and Adrienne LaFrance's illuminating postmortem on The New York Times' involvement with NYU's The Local.
