The Post-Advertising Future of the Media - The Atlantic
Mid-century newspapers were as broad and unobjectionable as department stores, because department-store advertising was their business. News media of the future could be as messy, diverse, and riotously disputatious as their audiences, because directly monetizing them is the new central challenge of the news business.

How the BBC Lost the Plot on Brexit | by Nick Cohen | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books
In the preface to Animal Farm, George Orwell provided a line that today would be apt for the walls of the BBC headquarters: “Unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without the need for any official ban.” No doubt, if the shift of public opinion against Brexit continues, the BBC’s silence will end and, like a weather vane, it will swing with the prevailing wind. It will receive no plaudits from me. No one should praise journalists who speak out when, and only when, they are certain that public opinion is with them. Not just journalists, but anyone engaged in political life should learn from the BBC’s abject performance. Whether you are on the left or the right, there will be times when you will be frightened of saying what you believe for fear of offending your friends, breaking a taboo or going against the ephemeral consensus of the day. Allow that fear to dominate you and you will end up like the BBC: platitudinous, frightened, and irrelevant.

J Hus, Knife Crime and the Way the UK Mainstream Consumes Music - Noisey
Unless people are able to consume and enjoy underground subcultural produce at arms length, without having to think about the difficult or challenging reality that it is often sourced from, it is rarely given a balanced hearing. We require more from our media in its engagement with the roots of music culture and the lives of artists who contribute towards it. Because simply cherry-picking surface level aspects of artistic expression, without properly trying to understand and be compassionate about its deeper social complexities – the very complexities that often make music as exciting and progressive as it is – will only further demarcate cultural boundaries in our patchwork society.

Who Owns the Internet? | The New Yorker
Foer prefers the model of artisanal cheesemakers. ( “World Without Mind” apparently went to press before Amazon announced its intention to buy Whole Foods.) “The culture industries need to present themselves as the organic alternative, a symbol of status and aspiration,” he writes. “Subscriptions are the route away from the aisles of clickbait.” Just after the election, he notes, the Times added more than a hundred thousand new subscribers by marketing itself as a fake-news antidote. And, as an act of personal resistance, he suggests picking up a book. “If the tech companies hope to absorb the totality of human existence,” he writes, “then reading on paper is one of the few slivers of life that they can’t fully integrate.”

The Charlie Alliston case: the real story | Road Danger Reduction Forum

Naturally it is unlawful and wrong to cycle with one rather than two effective braking systems, and we will accept the verdict of the court when it comes later today.

Togelius: Some advice for journalists writing about artificial intelligence
I'd like to offer some advice on how to write better and more truthfully when you write articles about artificial intelligence. The reason I'm writing this is that there are a whole lot of very bad articles on AI (news articles and public interest articles) being published in newspapers and magazines. Some of them are utter nonsense, bordering on misinformation, some of them capture the gist of what goes on but are riddled with misunderstandings. No, I will not provide examples, but anyone working in AI and following the news can provide plenty. There are of course also many good articles about AI, but the good/bad ratio could certainly be improved.

How Twitter Is Being Gamed to Feed Misinformation - The New York Times
“Bots allow groups to speak much more loudly than they would be able to on any other social media platforms — it lets them use Twitter as a megaphone,” said Samuel Woolley, the director for research at Oxford University’s Computational Propaganda Project. “It’s doing something that I call ‘manufacturing consensus,’ or building the illusion of popularity for a candidate or a particular idea.”

The Local News Business Model – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Indeed, the real problem with local newspapers is more obvious than folks like Rutenberg wish to admit: no one — advertisers nor subscribers — wants to pay for them because they’re not worth paying for. If newspapers were actually holding local government accountable I don’t think they would have any problem earning money; that they aren’t is a function of wasting time and money on the past instead of the future.

How Trump Blew Up the Conservative Media - POLITICO Magazine
While both Fox and Breitbart have undergone modest adjustments since Trump took office, his victory has thrown old-line conservative media into a state of genuine crisis. The conservative elite represented by the Wall Street Journal editorial page—whose hawkish, free-market views enjoyed outsize influence in previous Republican administrations—is now struggling to figure out what, exactly, its role is in the Trump era. After helping lay the groundwork for many of the policies of the Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush administrations, the elite conservative media have no place in the Trump White House. “They’re like the Catholic Church during the Great Schism, plagued by deep internal feuding, dancing on the head of a pin because they’re not important anymore,” says one executive of Dow Jones, the paper’s parent company, which is also run by Murdoch.

The roots of the modern conservative movement can be traced to the founding of National Review in 1955, and since then, its most important ideas have sprung from the journals and editorial pages of the right. Trump’s victory shook that landscape, reshaping the existing order and igniting bitter ideological feuds that are still playing out. The way they resolve themselves matters not just for an ideologically flexible president who has a closer relationship with the titans of right-wing media than any of his predecessors, but also for the future of the party he leads.

The Fate of the Critic in the Clickbait Age - The New Yorker
Criticism can assume many forms: essays, profiles, reported pieces, opinionated rants. Ultimately, though, the review is the grounding of what critics do and is the source of whatever authority they possess. Furthermore, criticism is cumulative: its impact can’t be measured by however many hits one piece receives. One common complaint in newsrooms is that reviews—especially reviews of one-off events, like concerts—appear after the fact. Readers can’t act upon such writing as they do with, say, movie or food criticism. Yet reviews are the shoe-leather journalism of the cultural sphere: they convey what happened, however subjectively or impressionistically. No editor would ask that political reporters deliver forecasts of what might happen in a debate, or candidates’ assessments of how they will perform, in place of accounts of the debate itself. This is the ridiculous position in which the non-criticizing critic is placed.

Donald Trump and the Enemies of the American People - The New Yorker
In Vladimir Putin’s Russia, as in every genuinely authoritarian state, there are no “enemies”—or, at least, none with the capacity to challenge power. Calling on all the repressive means available in such a state—compliant courts and legislatures; the elimination of political competition; comprehensive censorship of television—soaring popularity ratings are achieved. President Trump may wish for such means, just as he wishes for such popularity. For all the chaos and resulting gloom these past weeks, it has been heartening to see so many “enemies of the American people”—protesters, judges, journalists, citizens of all kinds, even some members of Congress—do their work despite Presidential denunciation, not necessarily as partisans of one party or another but as adherents to a Constitution.

The Great Unbundling – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
First, the new winners have models that look a lot like the one that destroyed the publishing industry: by owning end users these companies either capture revenue directly (Netflix) or have compelling platforms for advertisers; content producers, meanwhile, are commoditized.

Secondly, all four jobs were unbundled by different services, which is another way of saying there is no more bundle. That, by extension, means that one of the most important forces holding the TV ecosystem together is being sapped of its power. Bundling only makes sense if end users can get their second and third-order preferences for less; what happens, though, if there are no more second and third-order preferences to be had?

Stop saying that 2016 was the ‘worst year’ - The Washington Post
There are several reasons for this. To start, the structure of the media means negative subjects are almost always being highlighted. Harm is done in an instant, and disasters are happening at once: an earthquake, a plane crash or a terrorist attack. In contrast to this, the best news for life on Earth — improving global health, falling poverty, environmental progress — are shaped by quiet trends over the course of decades or centuries. The focus on single events and neglect of slow developments selects negative news instead of often positive developments.

If one really wants to battle Fake News and deceitful journalism that misleads others, one cannot selectively denounce some Fake News accounts while cheering and spreading those that promote one’s own political agenda or smear those (such as Assange) whom one most hates. Doing that will ensure that nobody takes this cause seriously because its proponents will be seen as dishonest opportunists: much the way cynically exploiting “anti-Semitism” accusations against Israel critics has severely weakened the sting of that accusation when it’s actually warranted.

Now, one of the icons of this alt-reality media, sits at the right hand of the new president. The self-described Leninist, who wants to “destroy the state,” has bragged that under his leadership Breitbart had become, in his own words, a “platform for the alt-right," a movement associated with the darker corners of the right, including white nationalism and anti-Semitism. Under Bannon, Breitbart and its satellites have not hesitated to use their clout to attack other conservatives who have been insufficiently enthusiastic about embracing Trumpism. Specifically, Bannon declared it was his mission to destroy Speaker Paul Ryan and, even after the public detente between Trump and Ryan, his old website continues to relentlessly attack the conservative speaker.

Breaking Up With Twitter - The New York Times
As a Twitter binger, I, too, had a similar impulse to question my commitment to the service after the election. It felt so insular, so time-consuming and yet so meaningless, too, in the grand scheme of things. It feels like time for detox. As they might say on Twitter (where people are fond of saying things in weird ways): What even are we doing here? And why can’t we stop?

Though Facebook is by far the larger and more consequential social network, Twitter functioned as this election cycle’s heartbeat. Just about every story that captivated the campaign either began on Twitter or got its viral energy there; a breaking news event wasn’t really a breaking news event until it was a tweet that could be passed around and commented on, and only then would it hit the wider online and television news circuit.

The lap dogs of democracy who didn’t bark at Trump - The Washington Post
Trump is correct that there has been something wrong with the coverage. But the problem is the media didn’t show bias against Trump earlier and more often. I’m not talking about partisan bias, but a healthy and necessary journalistic bias against authoritarianism.

Press treatment of Trump has, gradually and belatedly, become much tougher. But we in the media made Trump possible in the first place and enjoyed the entertainment (and ratings) he provided for far too long. When the election ends — if it ends — there needs to be some newsroom soul-searching.

London Cycle Lanes Blamed For Congestion - CityLab
This new traffic does indeed have less road space allotted to it than previously. That’s partly thanks to new bike lanes, as well as the the elimination of rat-run short cuts and construction-related road closures. If pollution is to be cut, the answer must surely be to reduce the number of motor vehicles on this network rather than to enlarge it and thus induce traffic. With London’s road congestion rising even as private car numbers fall, the city is going to need some smart solutions to manage an unforeseen set of circumstances. As long as the public debate is commandeered by anti-change voices making inaccurate complaints about better bike infrastructure, that’s unlikely to happen.

Dangerous idiots: how the liberal media elite failed working-class Americans | Media | The Guardian
The economic trench between reporter and reported on has never been more hazardous than at this moment of historic wealth disparity, though, when stories focus more often on the stock market than on people who own no stocks. American journalism has been willfully obtuse about the grievances on Main Streets for decades – surely a factor in digging the hole of resentment that Trump’s venom now fills. That the term “populism” has become a pejorative among prominent liberal commentators should give us great pause. A journalism that embodies the plutocracy it’s supposed to critique has failed its watchdog duty and lost the respect of people who call bullshit when they see it.

The Quietus | Opinion | Black Sky Thinking | HyperNormalisation: Is Adam Curtis, Like Trump, Just A Master Manipulator?
Does Adam Curtis deal in the truth? Maybe, maybe not. Perhaps the whole point is that increasingly, there's no such thing. Instead, he deals in a truth. It's a more reliable but harder to swallow truth than The Bank or The Met or Britain's Hardest Workers or anything else that the BBC is currently offering can bring itself to acknowledge. It's that no one knows anything.   There's a fascinating segment in the middle of HyperNormalisation telling the story of one of Donald Trump's bankruptcies. It's fascinating because it doesn't feel like it belongs. It's a non-sequitur and doesn't appear to connect to anything around it. But eventually, as Trump reappears, in all of his buffoonish, triumphalist glory, at the film's conclusion, all becomes clear. His placement in the middle of the film was a device, pure and simple. Adam Curtis isn't, strictly speaking, a reliable narrator because these days, no one is. And it's hard to think of a more fitting way for a filmmaker to illustrate that point that to either deliberately or inadvertently build it into his own narrative. Trump was introduced at the beginning and reincorporated in the centre of the film because he served Curtis's version of the truth. And now, more than ever before, the truth is subjective and is seen to be so.

They will need a new identity. I think James Murdoch has quite a different vision for Fox than Ailes had. But he will move slowly, his father will insist on maintaining the ‘brand.’ And if Trump loses in November, which is quite likely, Fox management will have some decisions to make about their direction, similar in some ways to the Republican Party: ‘What does the future look like?’”

The referendum was won on a drumbeat of anti-foreigner sentiment. It’s the same tune being played by demagogues in every corner of the globe. It’s the same tune that was played in the 1930s. It’s the same old beat that rises in volume when people are afraid. In the UK, it’s echoed by a rabidly right-wing press and unchallenged by a flaccid establishment media. Mixed by a band of unscrupulous liars and political zealots, it has become a tsunami of bile that has downed and drowned a once great nation.

Membership is a core part of plans by the publisher’s parent company, Guardian Media Group, to counteract falls in both print and digital revenue, which led to an £8m fall in total turnover to £209.5m.

The industry as a whole has faced greater than expected declines in print advertising over the past year, while digital ad growth has almost all gone to Google and Facebook.

Yes, blame the media for Donald Trump. Up to a point. - Vox
Looking ahead to the general election campaign, press coverage is less likely to benefit Trump. As usual, a majority of voters will already have made up their minds by the end of the political conventions. In a two-person race, Trump will likely no longer receive a major preponderance of news coverage, and with polls showing him trailing Hillary Clinton he is unlikely to benefit from the media’s tendency to prime voters to view the election as a horse race.

Moreover, his messages on issues like immigration, trade, and economic inequality are likely to be subject to aggressive counter-framing by the Clinton campaign. The media will cover this counter-framing out of an interest in balance, and this will likely undercut his appeal with undecided voters.

The media almost certainly contributed to Trump’s unexpected victory in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. But the general election is likely to present another media story — one less favorable to Trump’s chances.

The Tragic Downfall of British Media | Foreign Policy
There is a conceit among many senior editors in the U.K. that Britain has “the best journalism in the world.” At its best, certainly, British journalism is very good indeed. From the sober analysis of the Financial Times and the Economist to the tub-thumping of the tabloid press to the BBC’s worldwide reputation for accuracy and impartiality, the British public has access to a healthy mixture of domestic, foreign, and investigative reporting. On many occasions, democracy has been well served by journalists here who make important stories accessible and hold power to account.

At its worst, however, journalism in Britain can be truly awful. Five years ago, much of the world was rightly shocked by revelations of phone-hacking on the Rupert Murdoch-owned Sunday tabloid News of the World. The subsequent judicial investigation into the culture, practice, and ethics of the press, led by Lord Justice Leveson, exposed the tasteless practices on which some British tabloids had come to rely: the invasions into personal privacy, the gross intrusions into private grief.

The FT's warning to its media rivals: 'If you're trying to play a game of scale, you're going to lose' | The Drum
programme of finding thousands of new readers and drawing them into subscriptions, the view of the Pink Un’s leading strategic thinkers is that news organisations chasing raw audience scale as a means to advertising income are on a perilous path. And in the UK, that’s much of the industry.

The FT’s social media experimentation is founded on a digital subscriber base of 587,000 (or nearly 800,000 sales, including print buyers). “When I look around other sites now I am very glad that we have a subscription business – I wouldn’t want to be a site that didn’t,” says Robert Shrimsley, managing editor of “The advertising model on its own doesn't seem to me one that will sustain the kind of serious quality journalism that we are in the business of providing. We see ad blockers, we see the downturn of display advertising in general.” Most of all, he sees Facebook “hoovering up so much of the advertising revenue” generated by openly distributed news content.

Jon Slade, the FT’s chief commercial officer, is even more stark in his warning. “I've seen data recently that says that of all the pages on the internet less than one per cent of them are from newspapers – the vast majority of time spent is with social channels and they are always going to be much bigger than you are – so if you’re trying to play a game of scale then you’re going to lose.”

Why Gawker’s bankruptcy spells the end of an empire | Fusion
My hope is that precisely because Gawker’s value lies in its independence, any bidders for Gawker Media are going to consider it more of a liability than an asset, and therefore leave it out of their bid. It’s still theoretically possible, in other words, that might remain independent, even if Gizmodo and the other cash cows of the Gawker Media organization get sold, or that Denton might manage to buy the flagship site back from its new owner.

But the tragedy of today’s filing is that Nick Denton has no real control over that outcome. He built Gawker Media, and has devoted the past 14 years of his life to it. Now, he’s probably going to see his company disappear into the hands of one of the media moguls that Gawker was created to skewer. That’s nothing to be sanguine about.

Ground Control To Silicon Valley - BuzzFeed News
Code Conference couldn’t have come at a weirder time in already strained relationship between Silicon Valley and its chroniclers. Media people are flabbergasted at tech investors defending Theranos; tech investors are appalled that anyone in the media could defend Gawker. Both sides also seem a bit chastened by what slipped past their attention (see again: Theranos). Tech investors seem certain that there’s a media conspiracy to hurt them. Media people got their Thiel conspiracy theory confirmed. And there’s a phalanx of public relations people in between. As “tech” progresses faster and faster and into new areas, the tech press becomes increasingly untrained to keep it in check. So, what better time to share some venture-backed meat and guarded small talk?

Time Out owner hopes flotation will raise £90m to fund expansion | Media | The Guardian
Nearly 50 years since its founder put a first edition together from his mother’s kitchen table, Time Out has announced it intends to float on the stockmarket with an expected valuation between £185m and £225m.

Now a global digital media business 76% owned by private equity investors Oakley Capital it hopes to raise about £90m to fund expansion and repay £25m of net debt.

Tony Elliott produced the first edition of Time Out while on summer vacation from Keele University in 1968. From counter-cultural roots it grew to be the main lifestyle and listings magazine for London, then expanded into New York and other locations in the 1990s as well as publishing city guides.

How Peter Thiel’s Gawker Battle Could Open a War Against the Press - The New Yorker
The Republican candidate for President, for whom Thiel plans to serve as a California delegate, has said, “I’m going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money”—meaning, he’ll do what he can to overturn the Sullivan standard. The Gawker case may be only the first in a string of lawsuits that unleash a generation’s worth of resentment against the uniquely legally privileged position of the American press, at a moment when the press is far more vulnerable, economically and culturally, than it used to be. Journalists and their lawyers ought to be arming themselves for a protracted war.

How fake news sites frequently trick big-time journalists - Columbia Journalism Review
A few sites posing as legitimate news organizations, including one that crudely imitates ABC News’ logo and web address, first published the bunk Jordan story. From there it spread to other media outlets, like Metro US, Elite Daily, and the Dallas Voice. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel even weaponized the false claim in an editorial against North Carolina’s law. For what felt like the millionth time, fake news sites—the kind that say they’re satirical but are nothing like The Onion—had duped journalists into buying a bogus story.

Peter Thiel Violates Core Principles of Silicon Valley | Michael Lazerow | LinkedIn
Peter may indeed succeed in killing Gawker, though both my hope and prediction is that Gawker will emerge a stronger and more responsible actor in the media landscape. But in seeking personal revenge in violation of these two core values of trust and transparency, Peter has started digging the graves of his and Silicon Valley’s reputation as well.

How Donald Trump Destroyed the Interview - POLITICO Magazine
By rejecting the authority of the press to judge him, Trump has debilitated if not destroyed the power of the interview, befuddling a press corps that still believes it can bring him down with one more gotcha, one more “Pinocchio", one more “Pants On Fire" from the fact-checkers. Trump is laughing at them now.

Suddenly, national newspapers are heading for that print cliff fall | Media | The Guardian
It is time to recognise that the whole UK newspaper industry is heading for a cliff fall, that tipping point when there is no hope of a reversal of fortune.

It does not mean the immediate closure of papers because the lesson from regional owners is that it is possible to continue publication through cost-cutting. Papers can be produced with skeleton editorial staffs. Indeed, Richard Desmond has been doing that at the Daily and Sunday Express and Daily Star for several years.

Space in newsprint papers can be filled. The end result is something that looks like a paper, but the content lacks any real value. It is not journalism. It is pointless material without any public benefit.

An Open Letter to Peter Thiel
Your revenge has been served well, cold and (until now) anonymously. You admit you have been planning the punishment of Gawker and its writers for years, and that you have so far spent $10 million to fund litigation against the company. Charles Harder, the Hollywood plaintiff’s lawyer who has marshaled your legal campaign, is representing not just the wrestler Hulk Hogan on your behalf, but two other subjects of stories in suits against Gawker and its editorial staff.

You told the New York Times that you are motivated by friends who had their lives ruined by Gawker coverage, and that your funding is a “philanthropic” project to help other “victims” of negative stories. Let us run through a few examples so that people can actually read the articles you find so illegitimate, and make their own judgment about their newsworthiness.

Peter Thiel, Comic Book Hero – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Here’s the fact of the matter: what Gawker did (and still does) is wrong, but it’s wrong in the way that — and forgive the seriousness and political nature of this analogy, but I think it captures my point — Saddam Hussein was an awful dictator who murdered his own people. Taking him out may have been satisfying and justifiable in a narrow sense, but at what cost to the United States in both treasure and broader legitimacy?

The tech industry, like Thiel, is no underdog: it is the dominant economic force not just in the United States but in the entire world, both because of the wealth it creates, but especially because of the wealth it destroys. And, to quote another comic book figure, “With great power comes great responsibility”.

In this case, no matter how badly Thiel was personally hurt by Gawker, or how morally wrong their actions were, he is the one with far greater power, and the appropriate approach is not to leverage said power in an act of vigilantism, but to exercise the responsibility of defending the conditions that made his power possible to emerge, conditions that I believe are to the long-term benefit of everyone. That would be an approach worth applauding and emulating, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because the freedom that made possible the tech industry that made Thiel rich depends on it.

Peter Thiel’s dangerous campaign against Gawker | Fusion
Gawker could continue to fight the Hogan case; it could even win that case outright, on appeal. But even if Hogan went away, Thiel would not. Thiel’s lawsuits would not end, and Thiel’s pockets are deeper than Denton’s. Gawker’s future is indeed grim: it can’t afford to fight an indefinite number of lawsuits, since fighting even frivolous suits is an expensive game.

The result is that investing in Gawker right now is a very unattractive proposition, since any investor knows that they will be fighting a years-long battle with a single-minded billionaire who doesn’t care about how much money he spends on the fight. And if Gawker can’t raise any new money to continue to fight the Hogan case, then its corporate end might be closer than anybody thinks. The company’s money-spinning sites like Gizmodo and Lifehacker will live on, somehow: they have value to potential purchasers, and are assets which can be sold in satisfaction of a financial judgment. But Gawker Media, the unique and fearless media organization led by Nick Denton, is truly staring down an existential threat, with no obvious way out.

It gets worse. If Thiel’s strategy works against Gawker, it could be used by any billionaire against any media organization. Sheldon Adelson, Donald Trump, the list goes on and on. Up until now, they’ve mostly been content suing news organizations as plaintiffs, over stories which name them. But Thiel has shown them how to go thermonuclear: bankroll other lawsuits, as many as it takes, and bankrupt the news organization that way. Very few companies have the legal wherewithal to withstand such a barrage.

Fact-checking in a ‘post-fact world’ - The Washington Post
These problems aren’t exactly new: The question of what is propaganda and what is truth has plagued politics since politics began. But the nature of information in the social media age means it keeps getting easier for politicians, partisans, computerized “bots” and foreign governments to manipulate news, and it keeps getting harder to correct this. Fact-checkers are, for the moment, one of the best solutions. But they work only for people who want them to work, and that number may be shrinking.

Escaping the Digital Media ‘Crap Trap’ — The Information
So instead of scale for scale's sake, the next phase of the media revolution will be creating content of consequence and value. It will continue to be messy but the trajectory for the coming decade is promising. Listen carefully to what Mark Zuckerberg says of late and you can tell he wants quality content, not just quantity, and one day soon will probably want to produce some of it directly at Facebook. Same goes for Snapchat as it expands its content ambitions.

Can the web save the press from oblivion? | Media | The Guardian
Bell suggested this had left commercial news organisations with three choices. Rock, hard place and even harder place. One is to “push even more of your journalism straight to an app like Facebook and its Instant Articles, where ad-blocking is not impossible but harder”. A second is to accept that chasing online traffic through such platforms is “not only not helping you, but is actively damaging your journalism, so move to a measurement of engagement rather than scale”. The Guardian’s membership scheme, or more traditional subscription models, would be examples of this. Or three, rely on revenue from ads that don’t look like ads – “native advertising” – which no longer recognise the once sacred and impermeable wall between editorial content and paid-for messaging – and which already fuels the growth of companies like BuzzFeed.

The risk of trying to compete head-on with the ubiquitous social platforms by refusing to feed content looks reckless. But, as Bell observes, collaboration, the current general direction of travel, presents all kinds of different risks: “You lose control over your relationship with your readers and viewers, your revenue, and even the path your stories take to reach their destination.” Having failed or felt powerless to force any of these questions with the tech giants, it seems that last week American newspapers plucked up the courage to draw a belated line in the sand by suing Brave.

That suit also raises another question. Where might news go next? The one option that Bell’s analysis does not countenance in this new world order is the wildly old-fashioned possibility of people paying directly for the things that they like reading. The idea of micro-payments for journalism has been mooted for as long as digital media has existed, and largely rejected as unworkable or unacceptable to the new generation of readers. In response to the emerging mobile landscape, however, a few innovators are exploring whether the concept can be revived. As a journalist, it can be tempting to see them as the cavalry.

Alan Rusbridger's Guardian is on a suicide mission
But now the sheer size and starkness of the loss, which, on its present course could exhaust the Trust in as little as five years, perhaps frames the question more clearly than business issues are usually presented in the Guardian's always very fluid discussions of profits versus identity, truth, virtue and principle: does the paper's desperate financial performance represent a) a necessary, aggressive investment to meet the demands of a transforming industry that will shortly begin to pay off? b) a righteous existential leap, in which a bet on unknown future developments overrides a stricter view of business consequences? c) an ego trip and spectacular folly?

Study: Journalists’ Fear of Appearing Biased Benefits Special Interests -
The problem is not that journalists are not informed – quite the opposite. Even when journalists are perfectly informed, the paper shows, the public can remain uninformed due to the reptuational concerns of journalists who, for fear of appearing biased, give disproportionate weight to the views promoted by special interest groups.
Fearing that they will appear biased if they don’t give these claims equal weight, journalists report both sides of an issue, even when the science clearly supports only one side. “What’s important is for special interests to make advocates or evidence on their side of an issue readily available to the news media,” says Shapiro. “From there, the desire of journalists to tell both sides of the story does the rest of the work.”

The Art of Reading Russian Obituaries - The New York Times
The equivalent in contemporary Russia is an obituary that says that a man was found slain in his own apartment and there was no sign of forced entry. When this happens to someone well-known enough to warrant numerous written remembrances, the writers usually refer not to a killing but to a “tragic death” — as though it were not a criminal but a personal trait that caused the person’s demise. What they mean is that the deceased was gay and apparently died at the hands of someone he brought home.
