What do we want? Unbiased reporting! When do we want it? During protests! » Nieman Journalism Lab
Stories about women’s marches and anti-Trump protests give more voice to the protesters than those about Black Lives Matter and other anti-racism protests.

On tight deadlines, reporters may default to official sources for statements and data. This gives authorities more control of narrative framing. This practice especially becomes an issue for movements like Black Lives Matter that are countering the claims of police and other officials.

A Guide to Interactive Documentary - A How to manual for Web docs
Somewhat of a blend between a traditional linear narrative and a branching structure, the Parallel format means viewers are presented with choices in the story and although these decisions alter the route they take, they always return to the main narrative thread for pivotal moments. More complex and interactive than the Fishbone structure, but not as loose as the Branching approach, the Parallel narrative gives the impression of a ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ whilst still allowing moments of controlled guidance through your story.

3 Types of BuzzFeed Listicles Content Marketers Can Learn from
The Framework list which is BuzzFeed’s most important kind of list-article format organises a list around a specific story or narrative in a way that the list number merely organises and adds structure to the story. In this case, an interesting noteworthy story is thought-out first and then a list is extrapolated from the story. The list length has to do more with the key points in the story rather than second-guessing the ideal list number.

Beyond “Woodstein”: Narratives of Investigative Journalism: Journalism Practice: Vol 0, No 0
Using a methodology inspired by structural narratology and by James Hamilton’s [2016. Democracy’s Detectives: The Economics of Investigative Journalism. Cambridge: Harvard] economic analysis of investigative journalism, this paper identifies a set of 14 recurring structural and formal elements (plot events, character types and functions, visual iconography) that constitute a fable about investigative journalism. The fable structure is applied to analyze six diverse films about investigative journalism produced in the US in the last 40 years. The films include two instantiations of successful investigative journalism (All the President’s Men, Spotlight), two cases where conflict between journalists and corporate managers diminished the impact of the investigation (Good Night and Good Luck, The Insider), and two instances of a counter-fable of failed investigative journalism (Truth, Kill the Messenger). The paper argues that the films’ representation of investigative journalism influences public perceptions of investigative journalism. It also speculates about the factors that will influence investigative journalism and its representations in the current political context in the US.

(99+) (PDF) Chatbots on the Rise: A New Narrative in Journalism | Andreas Veglis and Theodora Maniou -
With the advent of Web 2.0, new forms of journalism arose, paving the way for the implementation of computational and automatization processes in all aspects of mass communication. As such, chatbots have already been adapted in the news media platforms bringing forward a series of issues and effects upon journalistic narrative, content and professional practices. This paper presents the role of chatbots and their characteristics, discusses the application of different types of chatbots in the news media and presents a theoretical overview of the advantages and disadvantages regarding their adaptation in journalism, as well as key ethical concerns connected to the emergence of this new journalistic narrative.

The Moral Premise Blog: Story Structure Craft: How Subplots Enrich Your Story
So, to recap, subplots should do the following and thus enrich your story:

Character/Goals: Each subplot follows a particular character in their pursuit of a specific goal that is related to the main plot and the moral premise.
Beats: Each subplot has fewer dramatic beats than the story's physical spine, thus keeping the story about the main plot and not overshadowing it or the protagonist's screen time and diluting the audience's investment in her.
Arc. The psychological arc of the character in pursuit of the subplot's goal lies along the arc described by the conflict of values in the Moral Premise Statement, thus keeping the story elements about one thing.
World-View: The subplot explores the moral premise and the story's spine from different world-views, thus giving the story depth and perspective.

Roy Peter Clark: 12 things I learned (or re-learned) about storytelling from watching ‘Game of Thrones’ – Poynter
In narratives, dialogue is not explanatory. It is a form of action, something experienced – overheard – by the audience. We think of “Game of Thrones” as a medieval fantasy adventure, in many ways an homage to Tolkien. But for a series known for its action, much of what we get, and appreciate, is talk, talk, talk.

How Reporters Used a Mother's Diary to Produce a Devastating Investigative Narrative - Global Investigative Journalism Network
Then, in an unusual move, ProPublica turned nearly half of the published story over to the mother and son. Rather than hew to the tradition of having the journalists control the bulk of the material in a standard interview/quote fashion, this story cedes control to the sources’ personal narrative. Or, as Kiernan says, it “breaks the ‘rules’ in all the right ways.” Together the reporters crafted a digressive structure that shifts from Cohen and Jaffe’s contextual narrative — based on the traditional tools of documents, interviews and research — to the private record of a family’s torment, in what one colleague called “an emotional piece of evidence.” They also persuaded mother and son to reflect back on the devastating impact of Wilson’s treatment. These were used as real-time annotations linked to Aline’s eight-year-old reflections and paired in a scrolling interactive presentation produced by designer Rob Weychert.

How AI will change storytelling and become the next great art form
In the latest chapter, “Whispers In The Night,” viewers can interact with a Lucy who responds and reacts to them as if you’re really in the room with her. This chapter just debuted at Sundance, but Fable says the work will be available in the Oculus Store once all three chapters are completed.

The idea here is that, as a virtual being, Lucy can share her memories with you, discuss them with you, and interact with you in real-time. She’ll even be able to remember what you’ve said to and done with her the next time she sees you.

In one way, you’ll be able to visit her in her own world. She’s a virtual person in a virtual land: you’ll use a headset to see her and your voice and hands to interact with her.

Do Pictures Tell a Different Story? A multimodal frame analysis of the 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict: Journalism Practice: Vol 13, No 2
Pictures play an ever-increasing role in the public’s understanding of mediated events. However, many studies show that visuals remain an understudied field, especially when it comes to multimodal approaches. This remains an important issue in today’s media environment, where visuals and their interaction with textual contents are becoming increasingly important carriers of meaning. The following paper presents results from a multimodal quantitative content analysis of the online coverage of the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict, wherein an innovative comparative approach to visual and textual frames was applied. We examine the existing frames, identify patterns of visual and textual frame co-occurrence and describe changes of the applied multimodal framing. Overall, a sample of 150 texts and 219 pictures was coded. The study shows that the applied visual and textual frames initially correspond with each other thematically. During the course of the conflict, however, the provided textual and visual framing divert increasingly. While the textual mode more or less upholds its original framing of the events, the visual level intensifies the framing strategy it has adopted since the escalation of the conflict began. As a result, textual coverage focuses more on negotiations and solutions, whereas images become increasingly graphic.

Presentation Zen: The Key to story structure in two words: Therefore & But
"Each individual scene has to work as a funny sketch. You don’t want to have one scene and go ‘well, what was the point of that scene?’ So we found out this rule that maybe you guys have all heard before, but it took us a long time to learn it. But we can take these beats, which are basically the beats of your outline. And if the words ‘and then’ belong between those beats… you’re f****d. Basically. You got something pretty boring. What should happen between every beat that you’ve written down is either the word 'Therefore' or 'but,' right? So what I’m saying is that you come up with an idea and it’s like ‘okay, this happens’ and then ‘THIS happens.’ No no no. It should be ‘this happens’ and THEREFORE ‘this happens.’ BUT ‘this happens’ THEREFORE ‘this happens.’ … And sometimes we will literally write it out to make sure we’re doing it. We’ll have our beats and we’ll say okay ‘this happens’ but ‘then this happens’ and that affects this and that does to that and that’s why you get a show that feels okay."

Koenig and Emmanuel Dzotsi, a producer who also spent months at the courthouse, are at their best when they distill their weeks of reporting into trenchant observations. They don’t burden us with long quotes and force us draw our own conclusions. They’re comfortable being the experts.

Claas Relotius Reporter Forgery Scandal - SPIEGEL ONLINE
The plan, as happens frequently in journalism, didn't work out. Relotius couldn't find any suitable figures for weaving a story, he couldn't make any headway with the idea. He sent emails back home, including to colleagues at DER SPIEGEL, complaining that he was stuck. He found himself in a situation that every reporter is familiar with: There simply isn't a story. In cases like this, quick decisions are necessary: Abort the story or continue? Give it another go or drop it? Look for a new angle or return home?

Narrative engagement and vicarious interaction with multiple characters: Mass Communication and Society: Vol 0, No ja
This study investigates how audience members relate to and vicariously interact with multiple characters while viewing a narrative. Under the framework of the theory of situation models, we applied a real-time thought-listing technique that incorporated Twitter and focused on three debuting TV dramas to explore how the participants followed multiple characters while watching prime-time television dramas. We examined 3,274 tweets across the three TV series and found that monitoring a greater diversity of characters is associated with an increased number of questions asked and more accurate predictions of future events. The participants who made more accurate predictions had higher narrative engagement. Additionally, the participants who had more thoughts about the self tracked a greater diversity of characters and made more accurate predictions about the plot. The results are discussed in terms of the developing literature on narratives in mass communication and entertainment research.

"The creative arts communicate a truth – they articulate a way that you might feel but haven't found the words for yourself."

Getting Youngsters Hooked on News: The effects of narrative news on information processing and appreciation in different age groups: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 14
Narrative news is often propagated as a means to inform and attract younger generations of news consumers. To test this, the current study assessed the effects of narrative structure versus inverted pyramid structure on information processing and news appreciation for Millennials, compared to Generation X, and Baby Boomers/Silent Generation. Participants were randomly exposed to either four online news articles written in a narrative structure or an inverted pyramid structure. Results show that people are better informed by narrative news. However, appreciation is lower for narrative news compared to the inverted pyramid. Moreover, the younger participants express lower appreciation, regardless of story structure. The results suggest that although the narrative structure is best at informing all audiences, it is not necessarily a viable strategy to attract younger news audiences.

They never made it to the end: Reader uses of a multimedia narrat...: Ingenta Connect
How does an audience respond to the structure, visual design and narrative flow of a multimedia narrative? Are readers following the course that an author-driven linear reading path suggests? This study investigates these questions through an eye-tracking experiment. In research within news websites that employ eye-tracking experiments the case in this study represents a new phenomenon for investigation, the longform multimedia feature. It is also especially interesting to explore how the readers interact with this type of narrative because the narrative is constructed as an author-driven embedded multimedia story and thus resemble what Dowling and Vogan describe as the ‘urtext’ of the multimedia longform genre. The findings of this study indicate that readers navigate according to the authordriven narrative flow within a chapter/part. But the readers in this study missed or misunderstood the navigational options between story parts. The ongoing digitalization in media outlets and the experimentation and developing of journalistic products might benefit from research addressing multi-methodological approaches.

Worth a Thousand Words: Tasers, new media events, and narrative struggle: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 11
Between April 2003 and November 2008, 26 men died in Canada during events where a conductive energy device (commonly called Taser®) was deployed on them. The 2007 death of Robert Dziekanski, a Polish immigrant, at the Vancouver International Airport, was recorded on a mobile phone and its footage uploaded to YouTube. The internet video, which documented Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers deploying a Taser on Dziekanski, was viewed by thousands around the world and traditional media organizations incorporated it into their coverage of the event. Unlike previous Taser-related deaths, the recording of Dziekanski’s death was an integral piece of the event’s anatomy and granted members of the mass public, as scrutinizers if not legitimate bystanders, entry into how it unfolded. Following Fiske, we treat the recording, its dissemination via the internet and broader news media, and its mass consumption as a “new media event”—one that articulated competing narratives of the device’s efficacy in print media coverage. Using a broad critical approach, we assess how groups like the RCMP, government officials, and victims made sense of the device pre- and post-recording via discourse analysis of published reports.

Reading News as Narrative: A genre approach to journalism studies: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 10
Scholars who use textual approaches to study news often blend theoretical perspectives in their work, asking some combination of questions about how news narratives function culturally, how news narratives are produced, and how news narratives are situated epistemologically. These perspectives often lead to compelling insights, and this article argues that a more fully fleshed-out approach to genre in journalism studies offers a robust means for contextualizing a wide array of theoretical concerns. Methodologically, attention to the textual conventions of a genre helps scholars attend to news narratives as both the products of standardized journalistic routines and evidence of broader cultural forces at play, cultural forces that rely upon journalism’s implicit authority over the truth. This article lays out guidelines for performing genre analysis while also offering examples for potential future studies.

BBC Stories - Mevludin survived Europe's biggest massacre...
BBC Stories’ Camila Ruz solved a decades-old mystery in The Stranger at my Brother’s Grave - a touching digital documentary about a sister’s search for the person who’d been leaving flowers at her brother’s grave for nearly 70 years.

The 20-minute doc, filmed and edited by Emily France, went onto iPlayer and YouTube. The six minute Facebook version got 1.1m 10-sec views with a 37-second average watch time and a Twitter ‘Moment’ - which told the story in a series of tweets - did brilliantly with 6,000 likes and 1,000 shares. The story – which was Exec Produced by Lucy Hancock - went on the One Show and was covered widely by external press from the Daily Mail to the Huffington Post, prompting a deluge of very sweet fan mail for Camila.

In collaboration with the Our World documentary on Ratko Mladic, a BBC Stories team designed a treatment to help share this story with a younger audience – relying on a key character and context to help share the story.

The Facebook post has spiked to 3.7 m 3-second views and 1.9m 10-second views, with an average watch time of 27 seconds and a top audience of 25-35 year old women. Gerard Groves and Marko Zoric made the piece, with Alison Gee the exec producer.

Classroom Card Game Teaches Digital Storytelling Skills
The game – which you can download free here – is based on the research we’ve conducted through Storybench, and it organizes many of the common ingredients that go into a successful digital news article. Here’s how it works:

Before starting the game, students should have fully-formed, focused story pitches and assemble in groups of four to five.
Each card in the deck of 15 contains a digital storytelling element – a map, photography, a game, a before-and-after, a crowdsourcing campaign, 360 or virtual reality, a timeline, a database, a social media campaign, a data table, an illustration, a call-to-action, a chart, audio or video. After deciding on one teammate’s story pitch, students deal the cards out and choose no more than three elements that might work for the story they’ve decided to pursue.
With the help of markers, sticky notes and whiteboards, the students wireframe the story using the three elements, while considering at least one archetypal user experience, the constraints inherent in digital design, and, of course, deadlines and both technical and reporting feasibility.
