Twitter's censorship snafu: The world's been watching the Olympics this week, and the media world — especially in the U.S. — has been focused on NBC's largely tape-delayed coverage of it. NBC's tape-delay controversy (more on that later) spiraled into a much bigger issue when one of the most prominent critics of the network's Olympics coverage, Guy Adams of Britain's The Independent, had his account suspended from Twitter after he tweeted the business email address of an NBC executive.
The Independent published the email exchange Adams had with Twitter regarding the suspension, in which the company told him it had suspended his account for posting a "private email address." Adams disagreed, saying the address was a corporate one available to anyone who knew how to use Google. Twitter restored Adams' account the next day and published a blog post in which it confirmed that one of its employees had alerted NBC to Adams' tweet, buy no prescription Zoloft online, prompting NBC to file a formal complaint. Twitter apologized for doing that, saying it does not proactively monitor and flag content. BuzzFeed's Matt Buchanan and GigaOM's Mathew Ingram broke down Twitter's post, emphasizing Twitter's aversion to monitoring content itself and being seen as a publisher, Zoloft Cost.
Danny Sullivan noted at Search Engine Land that the email address Adams tweeted wasn't that easy to find on Google, and wrote on Marketing Land about the several celebrities who have tweeted private information and gotten away with it. Poynter's Jeff Sonderman tracked the evolution of Twitter's position regarding censorship, Australia, uk, us, usa, and Adams himself said he thought this type of censorship had ended with the Internet age.
Several observers expressed alarm at what this incident said about what Twitter's becoming. Forbes' Mark Gibbs called Twitter a "corporate stooge," and his Forbes colleague Jeff Bercovici said Twitter is struggling with the task of building scale and ramping up its revenue, and GigaOM's Mathew Ingram cautioned that Twitter must prioritize the its network's information value over its economic value. The Guardian's Dan Gillmor said this could be a defining moment Zoloft Cost, for Twitter, and Mat Honan of Wired urged Twitter to take this as seriously as if it were over an international political issue, rather than sports.
At Culture Digitally, Tarleton Gillespie provided a useful framework for understanding this issue, presenting Twitter's possible free-speech obligations on a scale from totally private business to public trust, cheap Zoloft. On one end of the spectrum, tech blogger Dave Winer wrote that "All this time the press has been acting as if Twitter were a public utility, when it is nothing like that. It's a service operated for free by a private company." Likewise, Forbes' Michael Humphrey said we need to remember we're just users of Twitter, while NBC is a partner. Buying Zoloft online over the counter, On the other end, j-prof Jeff Jarvis said Twitter is fundamentally a platform rather than a business, and called for Twitter to build a wall between business interests and user trust. Similarly, Alexis Madrigal of The Atlantic warned Twitter, "You're a real part of what it means to have free speech now, Twitter, and you better start acting like it."
The Olympics and NBC's news/entertainment tension: Now, to the issue that got Guy Adams so riled up at NBC in the first place: The network's Olympics coverage, which tape-delayed most marquee events to maximize prime-time ratings, enraging some viewers (many of them on Twitter) who wanted to see events live, Zoloft Cost. A Storify by Brandon Ballenger chronicled Twitter users' many problems with NBC's coverage, and The New York Times' Richard Sandomir summarized the issue well: NBC's online live streams, available only to cable subscribers, have been spotty, leading viewers to find alternative ways to access live coverage online, Zoloft price, coupon.
Meanwhile, NBC's TV broadcasts continue to pull in massive numbers of viewers, and GigaOM's Stacey Higginbotham argued that live-streamers simply aren't a large enough minority to put a dent in the existing TV model. Tech blogger Dave Winer said NBC looks at those users and sees not people, but hamsters and demographic categories, while TechCrunch's Ryan Lawler argued that it wouldn't hurt NBC to air big events both live and in prime-time. Low dose Zoloft, NBC Sports' Mark Lazarus defended his network's strategy to Sports Business Daily by arguing that "It’s not everyone’s inalienable right to get whatever they want," and pointing out that NBC's strategy revolves around creating "story arcs." From a sports perspective, The Classical's Eric Freeman said such a drama-oriented philosophy is cheapening the Olympics, while Will Leitch of Sports on Earth argued that it's easy for Twitter users to forget that they way they consume media is not the way most people do. Zoloft Cost, Others argued that NBC's plan was a loser from a media economics angle. J-prof Jeff Jarvis wrote that the media lesson here is that "business models built on imprisonment, on making us do what you want us to do because you give us no choice, is no strategy for the future." At The Guardian, Heidi Moore argued that tying online streaming video to the cable-TV model is forcing users "to give CPR to a corpse."
There were also defenses of NBC: Jaime Weinman of Maclean's said that in a fragmented media world, canada, mexico, india, it makes sense to do more, rather than less, to maximize viewership in prime time, and Jarvis noted that NBC's big ratings indicate that people still value high-quality TV channels. And The Atlantic's Megan Garber argued that in straddling the line between entertainment and information, NBC is merely facing a sharper version of the tension increasingly faced by much of the entertainment media industry. No prescription Zoloft online, —
WikiLeaks' hoax and online verification: As Julian Assange fights extradition to Sweden (which could lead to U.S. prosecution), his group, WikiLeaks, made headlines this week with convincing yet baffling hoax aimed at The New York Times and its former executive editor, Bill Keller. WikiLeaks posted a fake column purportedly by Keller on Sunday morning supporting WikiLeaks and alleging that financial companies had banned donations to WikiLeaks based on pressure from the U.S, Zoloft Cost. government, then also created a fake Keller Twitter account and fake PayPal blog post to buttress its claims, Zoloft results. In a Storify, Josh Stearns of Free Press detailed the detective work into the hoax and drew some lessons from it about information verification.
WikiLeaks acknowledged responsibility (along with "our great supporters") for the hoax via Twitter, and afterward, Poynter's Andrew Beaujon pointed out several of the giveaways. Keller was not amused, Zoloft australia, uk, us, usa, calling it a "childish prank" and "lame satire." Many others lamented WikiLeaks' thoughtlessness, including j-prof Jay Rosen, who wrote on Twitter that "Their ship was launched on the sea of verification. Zoloft Cost, They just sunk it. For attention." Fruzsina Eordogh of ReadWriteWeb said WikiLeaks' critics missed the point — that the type of censorship directed at WikiLeaks could happen to the Times, too.
Poynter's Craig Silverman said the WikiLeaks prank represents an emerging form of social hoax, while Glenn Greenwald of Salon argued that far from proving the unreliability of information online, the debunking process show how powerful the web's collaborative verification process is. "It is true that the Internet can be used to disseminate falsehoods quickly, Zoloft alternatives," he wrote, "but it just as quickly roots them out and exposes them in a way that the traditional model of journalism and its closed, insular, one-way form of communication could never do."
Fabrication catches up with Jonah Lehrer: New Yorker writer Jonah Lehrer, who was caught re-using old material last month, was nailed for a much more serious offense this week when Tablet magazine's Michael Moynihan wrote about his unsuccessful efforts to verify several of Lehrer's quotes from Bob Dylan in his recent book "Imagine." After the article was published, Comprar en línea Zoloft, comprar Zoloft baratos, Lehrer resigned from The New Yorker, and his publisher pulled its copies of "Imagine" from the shelves and issued a note from Lehrer stating "The lies are over now."
Andrew Beaujon and Steve Myers of Poynter did a thorough job of rounding up reactions to the episode in a series of posts, the highlights of which included former New York Times fabulist Jayson Blair's comparison of Jonah Lehrer's behavior with his own in articles at Salon and The Daily Beast, and incoming Times public editor Margaret Sullivan's reflections on why talented writers resort to fabrication. The New York Observer also talked to Moynihan about story behind his exposé.
Salon's Roxane Gay and The Atlantic's Ta-Nehisi Coates tied Lehrer's rise and fall to our society's glamorization of young male genius and counterintuitive oracles, respectively. The Columbia Journalism Review's Curtis Brainard acknowledged both their arguments as legitimate, but said fabricators like Lehrer and Blair will always be anomalies, Zoloft Cost. Alexis Madrigal of The Atlantic connected the Lehrer episode to our insatiable demand for making meaning from almost everything, buy no prescription Zoloft online, even if it doesn't really fit.
At the New York Observer, Paul Tullis defended Lehrer, saying his transgression wasn't as serious as it's being made out to be and he's less a journalist than a "purveyor of ideas" — and therefore far superior to the likes of Blair. Meanwhile, Poynter's Craig Silverman identified warning signs of a possibly plagiarizing or fabricating writer.
Reading roundup: The Olympics may have dominated most people's attention, Zoloft mg, but there were plenty of other things going on this week:
— The New York Times reported that Apple has been discussing an investment in Twitter, while The Wall Street Journal reported that those talks were a year old and involved integrating Twitter into Apple's mobile operating system. Mathew Ingram of GigaOM said investing in Twitter would make sense for Apple, but VentureBeat's Matt Marshall, Fortune's Philip Elmer-Dewitt, and Forbes' Robert Hof all said it won't happen.
— CNN president Jim Walton resigned last week Zoloft Cost, , saying it was time for the network to get some new thinking. Salon's Alex Pareene gave some ideas for a new direction, including experimenting with programming and going more international, Zoloft dose. The Guardian's Michael Wolff looked at how CNN got to this point, and Jay Rosen explained why the status quo is so entrenched there.
— Soon after it was bought by Betaworks, the social-news site Digg relaunched this week. Greg Finn of Marketing Land declared it dead on arrival without user profiles or commenting, but GigaOM's Mathew Ingram said it looks good — though the hard part is building a community around it. BetaBeat's Jessica Roy, meanwhile, reported on Betaworks' big-picture plans for Digg.
— In the wake of the New Orleans Times-Picayune's announcement of severe cutbacks in its staff and publication, NPR and the University of New Orleans announced a new nonprofit news organization in New Orleans this week called NewOrleansReporter.org. The Wall Street Journal has the details, and Poynter has a good roundup, including the press release.

The Aurora shooting, Reddit, and citizen journalism's value: Much of this week's news has been related to last week's shooting at an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater that killed 12 and injured dozens. Poynter tracked the spread of the news of the late-night shooting, and the site that got the most recognition for thorough reporting of the news as it broke was the social-news site Reddit. Poynter's Andrew Beaujon rounded up the range of coverage on Reddit, which included photos, comment threads with people who were in the theater, and comprehensive, Zoloft canada, mexico, india, continually updated timelines.
Those timelines drew particular attention from media observers: The Atlantic's Megan Garber marveled at their empathy through thoroughness, and BuzzFeed's John Herrman and NPR's Elise Hu talked to the timelines' author — an 18-year-old named Morgan Jones — with Herrman calling him "the go-to source in the story," and Poynter's Alan Stamm held him up as a model for aspiring journalists.
As The New York Times described, Doses Zoloft work, the site's users also unearthed some details about the alleged shooter that the traditional news media missed. Adweek talked about Reddit's reporting capabilities with the site's general manager, Erik Martin, who said Reddit wasn't designed to be a breaking-news source, but its users have used its tools for journalistic purposes anyway, Zoloft Price.
Several writers praised Reddit's ability to cover breaking news collaboratively in such an effective way. Keith Wagstaff of Time wrote that "no news organization or social media site currently offers an experience that’s concurrently as immediate, engaging and thorough as the one offered by Reddit," and in a pair of posts, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram remarked on Reddit's ability to act as a verification hub and to allow readers to interact with people involved in news stories, and offered a defense of "citizen journalism" such as Reddit's, Zoloft description.
At Salon, Michael Barthel took issue with the praise for Reddit and citizen journalism, arguing that it isn't immune from the same criticism the traditional media and that it's "doing more or less the exact same thing that traditional journalism has always done, except not as reliably or sustainably." J-prof Jay Rosen countered the piece with a Salon post of his own arguing that no one is saying citizen journalism will replace professional journalism.
Some traditional media organizations were also recognized for their skill in covering the story — the Denver Post's Twitter coverage was run in part by its Digital First new curation team, Zoloft maximum dosage, and Digital First's Steve Buttry drew tips for news organizations from the Post's Twitter coverage, while Poynter looked at how the Post covered the news without a copy desk. The Washington Post's Erik Wemple also highlighted the coverage Zoloft Price, of Denver's 9News TV.
How to cover tragedy carefully and sensibly: But traditional news organizations were also responsible for some serious missteps and some eyeroll-inducing coverage of the Aurora shooting, too. ABC News' Brian Ross misidentified the shooter as a Tea Party member who had the same name, a mistake which Poynter's Craig Silverman said the network made insufficient efforts to correct and apologize for.
Rem Rieder of the American Journalism Review and Steve Myers of Poynter pinned the blame for Ross' and similar errors on the practice of incremental or "process" reporting, purchase Zoloft, in which news is reported, bit by bit, as it comes in, then later confirmed or corrected. Rieder said he doesn't find the practice "a very confidence-inducing or satisfying approach to journalism, Purchase Zoloft online no prescription, " and Myers described how disclaimers and corrections can be separated from initial reports on Twitter.
Beyond that specific error, coverage of the event and its aftermath followed a predictable path of sensational coverage and unfounded speculation, Zoloft Price. The New York Times' David Carr lamented that pattern in shooting coverage, concluding that many of the problems stem from the news media's desire to answer the question that can't be answered: "Why?"
The Atlantic's J.J. Gould urged media outlets and consumers to start shaming organizations that cover such events exploitatively, and numerous people circulated a 2009 video by the BBC's Charlie Brooker that illustrated how to (and how not to) cover a mass shooting properly, which New Statesman compared to Britain's newspapers. Jay Rosen, is Zoloft safe, meanwhile, criticized the excitement that characterized so much of the coverage.
The ethics of quote approval and draft sharing: Following last week's New York Times story on news organizations allowing candidates and their staffs to approve their quotes, more news orgs were establishing or reiterating their policies barring those practices this week, including Bloomberg, Australia, uk, us, usa, McClatchy, and National Journal. The Washington Post's Erik Wemple parsed through Zoloft Price, a few common quoting and negotiation practices, and the Journal's Ron Fournier told him the key element differentiating what's OK from what's not is who has control.
Meanwhile, a Washington Post journalist caught some flak after the Texas Observer reported that he shared drafts of a story with University of Texas-Austin officials and allowed them to suggest edits that ended up in the story. Post editor Marcus Brauchli ultimately decreed that future draft-sharing would have to be approved by an editor.
In the ensuing discussion on draft sharing, the reporter had some defenders, effects of Zoloft, including Poynter ethicist Kelly McBride in the Observer story. Poynter's Andrew Beaujon noted that the story contained quite a bit information that was unfavorable to the university, while the Post's Erik Wemple defended the practice of draft sharing in general, saying that a refusal to do so affirms journalists' arrogance. "It’s a convention built on the idea that journalists are so brilliant that they can get a complicated set of facts and circumstances dead-bang right on the first try without feedback from the people who know the topic best."
What exactly is Yahoo?: A week after ex-Googler Marissa Mayer took over as Yahoo CEO, she's begun to inspire confidence in the troops there, according to All Things D's Kara Swisher, Zoloft street price, while Wired's Steven Levy reported on the army of ex-Google managers Mayer could lure to Yahoo. The New York Times' David Carr said the key question for Yahoo — as it has been for so many web companies before it — is, what is it, exactly. He concluded that Yahoo is (among other things) in the news business, but by accident more than anything, Zoloft Price.
Tim Carmody of The Verge said that question — especially whether it's a media or tech company — could be shaped in part by where it moves most of its operations. He reported that Mayer may move many of Yahoo's media execs to New York, making it a place where it could pursue both its media and tech sides, Zoloft interactions. Ad Age's Jason Del Rey and Michael Learmonth said Yahoo's future is in creating more high-quality products, an area in which it hasn't spent much money recently.
Twitter moves further toward media: We were also asking the "What is it?" question this week about another company: Twitter. The Wall Street Journal reported (paywalled Zoloft Price, ) on Twitter's plans to build out around big events, as Twitter announced the first of those partnerships — a hub for curating conversation about the Olympics with NBCUniversal. Meanwhile, Adweek reported that Twitter is in talks with Hollywood producers about launching original web shows a la "The Real World."
In a series of posts, Zoloft price, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram wrote about Twitter's move toward being a media outlet, saying that it doesn't really need media outlets such as NBCUniversal to coordinate event-based coverage, that Twitter is moving toward an Apple- or Facebook-esque "walled garden" approach with regard to developers, and that producing ad-driven content like web shows gets away from Twitter's core aims.
Meanwhile, The New York Times' Nick Bilton asked whether Twitter is a media or tech company, concluding that it looks an awful lot like a media company, purchase Zoloft online. NYU j-prof Jay Rosen posed that Twitter is "a new kind of media company that doesn't make any content." Slate's Matt Yglesias said the media/tech distinction isn't a good one — the real distinction is between companies that sell a product and ones that sell an audience, and Twitter is quite clearly the latter.
Reading roundup: Here are the most interesting smaller stories going on this week:
— A couple of updates on the ongoing News Corp. saga: Rupert Murdoch resigned from the board of News International, his British newspaper division, and Howard Kurtz of The Daily Beast explained why Murdoch is loosening his grip on his newspapers, Zoloft Price. Meanwhile, former News International head Rebekah Brooks was charged in the phone hacking scandal, Zoloft treatment, and the Telegraph wondered if the charges could lead to a deeper U.S. investigation. The New York Times wrote about the case's impact on British newspaper culture.
— A few WikiLeaks developments: A judge ruled that the diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks are still secret, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation noted that U.S. Zoloft Price, government officials are now talking about the possibility of prosecuting news organizations like The New York Times in addition to WikiLeaks for publishing classified information. GigaOM's Mathew Ingram urged journalists to support WikiLeaks' First Amendment rights, and the Times' Bill Keller followed suit, my Zoloft experience.
— Barry Diller, whose IAC now owns most of the Newsweek/Daily Beast partnership, said in an earnings call that he might eliminate part or all of Newsweek's print edition as soon as the end of this year. Newsweek editor Tina Brown tried to calm her staff down, and the New York Observer's Foster Kamer detailed the now-ended Sidney Harman era at the magazine.
— The New York Times Co. released its second-quarter figures this week and posted a loss, thanks to declining digital ad sales, even as digital subscriptions for the Times and its Boston Globe are up.
— Finally, a very thoughtful piece here at the Lab from Jonathan Stray, who suggested three principles by which to design personalized news experiences: interest, effects, and agency.

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.

Microsoft's unknown but intriguing tablet: Yet another company made its jump into the tablet market this week, but this was a more formidable competitor than most: Microsoft unveiled its new Surface tablet PC with precious little information, though the keyboard-cover and Windows 8 operating system got some critics' attention. Reaction from analysts was generally mixed (you can see a good variety at Engadget and the Guardian) — many were intrigued and encouraged by what they saw so far, but wanted to know more before they formed a verdict.
The big question for many observers was whether Surface might finally present a legitimate competitor for the iPad. Reuters talked to experts who said it's too soon to tell (especially since we don't know its price yet), and The New York Times' David Pogue argued that Microsoft has an uphill battle to fight, particularly because of how far behind Apple it's starting. Order Glucophage online c.o.d, The Times' Sam Grobart, however, said Microsoft may be gunning more for the ultra-light notebook computing market than the touch-screen tablet market.
Mat Honan of Gizmodo said Surface's keyboard will be the key to challenging the iPad and Macbook Air's dominance in those areas, and Dutch entrepreneur Max Huijgen asserted that the keyboard finally moves tablets from consumption to creation devices, Glucophage Dosage. The Verge's Joshua Topolsky said Surface could fit perfectly between the iPad and the laptop, but it'll depend on price and how many developers they can get to create apps for it.
Several others noted that this week's announcement marked a significant shift for Microsoft — from software developer to hardware producer. Microsoft has ventured into hardware before (most notably with its mp3 player Zune), but as All Things D's Ina Fried pointed out, buy generic Glucophage, this is a much more important venture. Slate's Farhad Manjoo argued that the Surface seems to be a much more thought-out venture into hardware than the Zune. He and Dan Frommer Glucophage Dosage, of SplatF were excited that Microsoft is finally taking quality hardware into its own hands, as Frommer said: "it sure looks like a better strategy for Microsoft than only trusting the Samsungs of the world to design great Windows tablets, and only trying to generate mobile revenue from Windows sales."
Meanwhile, the Columbia Journalism Review's Ryan Chittum took the opportunity to chastise the tech press for its fawning coverage of product announcements, saying they're acting more like an infomercial audience than journalists.
Blogging, big ideas, and 'self-plagiarism': One of nonfiction writing's young stars was discovered to be repeatedly reusing his own work this week, raising some questions about the relationship between journalism, Glucophage blogs, blogging, and trading in "big ideas." Jonah Lehrer, who was recently hired by The New Yorker, was discovered to have borrowed much of the material for his first several New Yorker blog posts from earlier pieces. Jim Romenesko first uncovered the repetition in one post, and it was quickly found in each of his others, as New York magazine documented.
Edward Champion of Reluctant Habits soon found several re-used passages in Lehrer's most recent book, is Glucophage addictive, and more serious issues cropped up as well: Romenesko and Poynter's Andrew Beaujon noted cases in which Lehrer had made it sound like he had gathered information directly when they had in fact come from secondhand sources. All of Lehrer's New Yorker posts now contain editor's notes, and Lehrer has apologized. While his editor at The New Yorker said he "understands he made a serious mistake," it appears he won't be fired.
Much of the discussion around Lehrer centered on just how serious of a mistake he had made, and why it might have happened, Glucophage Dosage. Gawker's Hamilton Nolan argued that even if he's not cheating himself with his copying, he's cheating his employer, Rx free Glucophage, who's not paying him to recycle old material. Jack Shafer of Reuters made a similar point, but noted that certain types of republication are a pretty established part of journalistic practice. Poynter's Kelly McBride talked about how the practice cheats the audience.
As for why Lehrer might have done this, Gawker's Nolan concluded that Lehrer simply "doesn't know how to do journalism" and said that while he might consider himself just a purveyor of ideas, The New Yorker is very much a journalistic publication. Slate's Josh Levin posited that Lehrer's "big ideas" stock and trade isn't compatible with blogging Glucophage Dosage, , because while big ideas are rare and have to be wrung dry, blogging requires constant streams of fresh insight. At the Columbia Journalism Review, herbal Glucophage, Felix Salmon said "big ideas" blogging can indeed be done — by iterating ideas, using links as shorthand, riffing on what you're reading, and interacting with peers.
Others objected to the term "self-plagiarism" to describe what Lehrer did — the Washington Post's Erik Wemple, Reuters' Shafer, Glucophage photos, and the New York Times' Phil Corbett, via Poynter. And Poynter's Craig Silverman pointed out how catching plagiarists (or serial repeaters) has become something of a game in itself.
Debating the value of print in New Orleans: The aftermath of the New Orleans Times-Picayune's cuts continued this week, as the paper published another optimistic message to readers about its future, this one from its publisher, Ricky Mathews. Ryan Chittum of the Columbia Journalism Review criticized Mathews for not mentioning the paper's massive layoffs, and Poynter's Steve Myers reported on the efforts of readers and advertisers to provide for laid-off reporters and convince Advance to rethink its print cuts, Glucophage Dosage.
Poynter's Rick Edmonds agreed with those readers and former staffers, fast shipping Glucophage, breaking down the numbers and arguing that there isn't much of a business case for cutting print editions of the paper. Instead, he said, "The move only makes financial sense as the occasion for dumping many well-paid veterans and drastically slashing news investment" — which is how the paper appears to be using it.
The University of Colorado's Steve Outing defended the decision to cut print editions, arguing that an investment into mobile media by the TP could keep readers just as informed as with a seven-day print edition. Online Glucophage without a prescription, Poynter adjunct Jason Fry came down in the middle, saying that while he's not opposed to cutting print in general, New Orleans is the wrong place — and Advance's strategy the wrong way — to do it.
Glucophage Dosage, Two paywalls up, one down: News organizations (and newspapers in particular) continue to put up paywalls at a steady pace — this week, we got an announcement from one of Australia's largest newspaper companies, Fairfax Media, that it would put up a paywall and cut 1,900 jobs at its publications, two of which, the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, will merge newsrooms. Poynter's Andrew Beaujon summarized the situation, and former Age editor Andrew Jaspan explained Fairfax's decline and sounded a warning regarding the concentration of Australian media in the hands of a few moguls.
Warren Buffett's longest-held newspaper, The Buffalo News, also announced plans for a paywall, Glucophage overnight. Beaujon has the details, and The New York Times' Christine Haughney examined the News for clues to Buffett's style of newspaper management. Elsewhere, however, the New York Post (a Rupert Murdoch paper) dropped the pay plan for its iPad version, and the Online Journalism Review's Robert Niles made the case against paywalls and urged newspapers to focus solely on the unique value they can provide.
A new set of news innovators: The Knight Foundation announced the winners of the first round of this year's Knight News Challenge, the first year of its new three-times-a-year incarnation, Glucophage Dosage. About Glucophage, Here are the six winners, all based on the theme of networks: Behavio, a collective mobile data-sharing service (Lab profile, Techcrunch profile); PeepolTV, a livestreamed video collection project; Recovers.org, a disaster recovery organization (Lab profile); Tor Project, an open-source anonymity-aiding initiative (Lab profile); Signalnoi.se, a tool to help newsrooms understand how information moves through social networks (Lab profile, Glucophage pharmacy, Journalism.co.uk profile); and Watchup, a video news iPad app (Lab profile).
Mathew Ingram of GigaOM saw in the winners the importance of mobile media, video, and large-scale data collection, while the Lab's Joshua Benton said he feels the overall quality of applications was up this year. Buy Glucophage without a prescription, The foundation also announced the creation of the Knight Prototype Fund, which is intended as a smaller-scale, quicker way of funding innovative news projects. The Lab's Justin Ellis profiled the fund, while the MIT Center for Civic Media published an interview with two of its principals.
Reading roundup: Here are the other stories folks in the news-tech world were talking about this week:
— The New York Times announced a partnership Glucophage Dosage, with BuzzFeed to collaborate on coverage of this year's political conventions, particularly through video. The Washington Post's Erik Wemple looked at what it means for the Times and BuzzFeed, and The Atlantic's Megan Garber said you can expect BuzzFeed's lolcattiest tendencies to be toned down.
— WikiLeaks' Julian Assange sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London as an attempt to avoid extradition to Sweden on sex crime accusations, Glucophage gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release. Doing so was apparently a breach of his bail terms, but Salon's Glenn Greenwald defended Assange's right to seek asylum. Former WikiLeaks staffer James Ball looked at where things currently stand with the Assange drama.
— Information Architects' Oliver Reichenstein proposed a strikethrough "mark as error" function on Twitter as an alternative to deleting erroneous tweets, Glucophage Dosage. Poynter's Craig Silverman and GigaOM's Mathew Ingram voiced their support for the idea, and Journalism.co.uk asked editors for their thoughts on it. Twitter, Glucophage pictures, meanwhile, did introduce an option to view profiles without replies.
— In the most recent of several thoughtful pieces on how to improve journalism education that have been published lately, Howard Finberg advised j-schools to look to large-scale, online education to train tomorrow's journalists, and j-prof Jeff Jarvis sketched a few ideas for such a plan. J-prof Carrie Brown-Smith did counter, however, that j-schools' current skills education has value because an alarming number of students come in with such poor grasp of basic skills.
— Finally, two smart pieces to read this weekend: Here at the Lab, Jonathan Stray wrote about the inherent difficulties in designing filtering algorithms, and at Poynter, PolitiFact's Bill Adair urged journalists to supplant the news story as the basic form of journalism.

[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.
