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.

[This review was originally posted at the Nieman Journalism Lab Bactrim Price, on April 29, 2011.]
Leaking gets competitive: WikiLeaks made its first major document release in five months — during which time its founder, Julian Assange, was arrested, released on bail, and put under house arrest — this week, publishing 764 files regarding the Guantánamo Bay prison along with 10 media partners. (As always, The Nation's Greg Mitchell's WikiLeaks über-blogging is the place to go for every detail you could possibly need to know.)
That's more media partners than WikiLeaks has worked with previously, and it includes several first-timers, such as the Washington Post and McClatchy. As the Columbia Journalism Review's Joel Meares noted, Where can i buy Bactrim online, the list of partners doesn't include the New York Times and the Guardian, the two English-language newspapers who worked with WikiLeaks in its first media collaboration last summer. Despite being shut out, those two organizations were still able to force WikiLeaks' hand in publishing the leak, as the Huffington Post's Michael Calderone explained.
The Times got their hands on the documents independently, then passed them on to the Guardian and NPR, order Bactrim no prescription. This meant that, unlike the news orgs that got the info from WikiLeaks, they were operating without an embargo, Bactrim Price. As they prepared to publish last Sunday, WikiLeaks lifted its embargo early for its own partners (though the first to publish was actually the Telegraph, a WikiLeaks partner).
The New York Times' Brian Stelter and Noam Cohen said the episode was evidence that WikiLeaks "has become such a large player in journalism that some of its secrets are no longer its own to control." But, as they reported, Bactrim photos, WikiLeaks itself didn't seem particularly perturbed about it.
Patch's reaches for more bloggers: AOL seems to be undergoing a different overhaul every week since it bought the Huffington Post earlier this year, and this week the changes are at its hyperlocal initiative Patch, which is hoping to add 8,000 community bloggers to its sites over the next week or two in what its editor-in-chief called a "full-on course correction."
While talking to paidContent, AOL's folks played down the degree of change it's implementing, explaining that these new bloggers (who will be recruited from, Bactrim recreational, among other sources, the sites' frequent commenters) aren't disrupting the basic Patch model of one full-time editor per site. In fact, they'll be unpaid, something that's been a bit of a headache for AOL and HuffPo lately.
Business Insider's Nicholas Carlson liked the plan Bactrim Price, , saying volunteer bloggers can become "extremely effective word-of-mouth marketers" and "excellent pageview machines" with, of course, "manageable" salaries. Bactrim class, Others from MediaBistro and Wired were a little more skeptical of the no-pay factor. Lehigh j-prof Jeremy Littau took issue with a more systemic aspect of the new blogs, which will exist both on the writer's own site and on Patch. Splitting up the conversation with that arrangement won't be helpful for the individual blogs or for the local blogosphere as a whole, he said: "I see something developing that leads to less population in the local blogosphere and a walled-off system that operates on Patch. At worst, it will lead to parallel and fracture conversations online, which is death when we’re talking about hyperlocal."
Two new media manifestos: Two New York j-profs — and two of the more prominent future-of-news pundits online these days — both published manifestos of sorts this week, effects of Bactrim, and both are worth a read. Jay Rosen summed up what he's learned about journalism in 25 years of teaching and thinking about it at NYU, and CUNY's Jeff Jarvis gave a few dozen bullet points outlining his philosophy of news economics.
Rosen's post touched on several of the themes that have colored his blog and Twitter feed over the past few years, including the value of increasing participation, the failure of "objectivity," and the need for usefulness and context in news, Bactrim Price. But the ideas weren't exactly new, the conversation they generated was stimulating. Bactrim interactions, The comments chase down some interesting tangents, and GigaOM's Mathew Ingram expanded on Rosen's point about participation, arguing that even if the number of users who want to participate is relatively low, opening up the process can still be immensely important in improving journalism. Rosen also inspired TBD's Steve Buttry to write his own "what I know about news" post.
Like Rosen's post, Jarvis' wouldn't break a whole lot of ground for those already familiar with his ideas, my Bactrim experience, but it summed them up in a helpfully pithy format. Bactrim Price, He focused heavily on providing real value ("The only thing that matters to the market is value"), the importance of engagement, and finding efficiencies in infrastructure and collaboration. His post contains plenty of pessimism about the current newspaper business model, and Mathew Ingram and FishbowlNY's Chris O'Shea defended him against the idea that he's just a doomsayer.
Times paywall bits: The New York Times spent a reported $25 million to develop its paid-content system, and it will be spending another $13 million on the plan this year, Bactrim without prescription, mostly for promotion. Women's Wear Daily detailed those promotional efforts, which include posters around New York as well as TV spots. PaidContent's Robert Andrews compared the Times' pay plan to that of theother Times (the one in London, owned by Rupert Murdoch), noting that the New York Times' plan should allow them to draw more revenue while maintaining their significant online influence, something the Times of London hasn't done at all (though it's largely by choice), Bactrim from canadian pharmacy.
Meanwhile, Terry Heaton found another (perhaps more convoluted) way around the Times' system, tweeting links to Times stories that he can't access, Bactrim Price. And elsewhere at the Times, the Lab's Megan Garber explored the Times' R&D Lab's efforts to map the way Times stories are shared online.
And elsewhere in paywalls, the CEO of the McClatchy newspaper chain has reversed his anti-paywall stance and said this week the company is planning paywalls for some of its larger papers, and Business Insider introduced us to another online paid-content company, Buy Bactrim online no prescription, Tiny Pass.
Apps, news, and pay: In his outgoing post on Poynter's Mobile Media blog, Damon Kiesow had a familiar critique for news organizations' forays into mobile media — they're too much like their print counterparts to be truly called innovative. But he did add a reason for optimism, pointing to the New York Times' News.me and the Washington Post's Trove: "Neither is a finished product or a perfect one, get Bactrim. But both were created by newspaper companies that put resources into research and development."
Media analyst Ken Doctor said Bactrim Price, local news needs to start moving toward mobile media to reach full effectiveness, laying out the model of an aggregated local news app pulling various types of media. For maximum engagement, that app had better include audio, according to some NPR statistics reported by the Lab's Andrew Phelps.
There may a bigger place for paid apps than we've thought: Instapaper's Marco Arment twice pulled the free version of the app for about a month and found that sales actually increased. He made the case against free apps, Kjøpe Bactrim på nett, köpa Bactrim online, saying they bring low conversion rates, little revenue, and unnecessary image problems. Meanwhile, makers of one free app, Zite, said they're releasing a new version to deal with complaints they've been getting from publishers about copyright issues, about Bactrim.
Reading roundup: No big stories this week, but tons of little things to keep up on, Bactrim Price. Here's a bit of the basics:
— On social media: Facebook launched a "Send" plugin among a few dozen websites (including a couple of news sites) that allows private content-sharing. The Next Web's Lauren Fisher argued that journalists should spend more time using Facebook, and Canadian j-prof Alfred Hermida wrote about a study he helped conduct about social media and news consumption.
— The Guardian shut down a local-news project it launched last year, saying the local blogs were "not sustainable." PaidContent's Robert Andrews said that while the blogs were useful, Bactrim cost, there are few examples of sustainable local-news efforts, and Rachel McAthy of Journalism.co.uk rounded up some opinions to try to find the value in the Guardian's experiment.
— The news filtering program launched in public beta this week, prompting a New York Times profile and pieces by GigaOM's Mathew Ingram and the Knight Digital Media Center's Amy Gahran on the journalistic value of curation.
— Thanks to its most recent content-farm-oriented algorithm tweak, Google's traffic to all Demand Media sites is down 40%, which caused Demand stock to slide this week. Google, meanwhile, added some more automatic personalization features to Google News.
— The Lab's Andrew Phelps wrote a great piece expounding on the journalistic utility of the humble (well, kind of humble) smartphone.
— And for your deep-thinking weekend-reading piece, Harvard researcher Ethan Zuckerman's thoughtful take on overcoming polarization by understanding each other's values, rather than just facts.
