Outspoken Maldives Blogger Who Challenged Radical Islamists Is Killed
"A liberal blogger who wrote satirical critiques of the Maldivian government and the spread of radical Islam died Sunday after being stabbed in the stairway of his apartment building.

The blogger, Yameen Rasheed, 29, had complained repeatedly to the police about receiving death threats, he said in an interview with The New York Times this year, adding that the police often failed to return his calls or dropped his complaints without investigation.

'In my case, I get multiple kinds of death threats from different people, because I write and do the campaign,' he said. Mr. Rasheed was a coordinator of a campaign to find his friend Ahmed Rilwan Abdulla, a journalist for The Maldives Independent who was abducted in 2014." - Hassan Moosa and Kai Schultz, New York Times

Why Some Media Companies Are Pulling Back on the NewFronts - WSJ
last year’s events attracted 16,000 attendees (including ad buyers attending multiple NewFronts)

Doug Ray, president of product and innovation at Dentsu Aegis Network, said that when the NewFronts were started, big marketers needed help understanding the web video marketplace. That mission has largely been accomplished, he said, particularly as giant platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Snapchat have become video powerhouses.

“What clients are looking for is scale,” he said. “There are very few digital video platforms that can truly deliver premium video content at scale. Therefore, [are] the NewFronts, where you’ve got dozens of suppliers rolling out and having conversations with clients…really needed anymore?”

But since the initial 2017 schedule was released by the Interactive Advertising Bureau in December, there have been a growing number of big name departures. BuzzFeed and Yahoo have dropped out, and recent participants like Stylehaul opted not to return.

To be sure, the IAB has had no shortage of new entrants. Twitter is hosting its first NewFront this year, as is the young-male focused digital media company Uproxx.

Algorithmen oder Journalisten können das Fake-News-Problem nicht lösen. Das Problem sind wir. –
Die Verantwortung dafür, Fake News einzudämmen, kann nicht allein großen Plattformen wie Facebook und Google überlassen werden. Die Probleme liegen viel tiefer und lassen sich nicht mit schnellen Antworten lösen. Stattdessen muss das Problem an der Wurzel angepackt werden.

Nate Silver Nails It: The Media Is Responsible For Costing Clinton The Election
The media doesn't talk about how Hillary Clinton really lost, because it implicates their judgment. Nate Silver pointed out that Hillary Clinton got a 3 point drop in her polls after the Comey letter about her non-existent email scandal.
The media doesn’t talk about how Hillary Clinton really lost, because it implicates their judgment.
Nate Silver pointed out that Hillary Clinton got a 3 point drop in her polls after the Comey letter about her non-existent email scandal and then she lost Florida, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan by 1 point. The media has ignored this fact, he wrote, because it implicates their judgment.
“Clinton experienced a sharp, 3-point drop in her polls after the Comey letter came out. Then on 11/8, she lost FL, WI, PA & MI by <=1 point," Nate Silver wrote on Twitter. Adding, "It's a fairly open-and-shut case. But the media's election post-mortems have mostly ignored it because it implicates the media's judgement."

Jason Chaffetz Is Fleeing Scandal—But Maybe Not His Own | Mother Jones
Even as he courted reporters and TV bookers, Chaffetz warned the GOP establishment that his election was a warning sign. In the online diary that accompanied the CNN show, Chaffetz recounted how, during his first weeks in office in January 2009, he had gotten up before a House Republican strategy session and told the assembled members, "I am your worst nightmare." He explained how the advent of social media had allowed him to bypass the mainstream media and, with very little funding, knock off an establishment candidate.

Ultimately, Chaffetz may have underestimated Hatch, whose mild-mannered exterior belies a ruthless political operator. There's a reason he's served longer than any Republican senator since Strom Thurmond. Cherilyn Eagar a conservative Republican activist and local talk radio host who lives in Chaffetz's district, echoes what various sources told me. She says Utah political insiders suspect "the Hatch campaign had gotten heavy-handed. There was a bit of information they were going to disclose if he ran. Things were going to get ugly." (Hatch's office did not respond to a request for comment.)
