Media Websites Battle Faltering Ad Revenue and Traffic
[lots more competition for people's attention] The trouble, the publishers say, is twofold. The web advertising business, always unpredictable, became more treacherous. And website traffic plateaued at many large sites, in some cases falling — a new and troubling experience after a decade of exuberant growth. Online publishers have faced numerous financial challenges in recent years, including automated advertising and ad-blocking tools. But now, there is a realization that something more profound has happened: The transition from an Internet of websites to an Internet of mobile apps and social platforms, and Facebook in particular, is no longer coming — it is here. [...] “How do I monetize [content]?” he asked. “Still not clear.” //&! bit.ly/1Sxbrdu - if buzzfeed is hurting, everyone else is screwed. //&! nyti.ms/1WzYfHE

Spare Me Your Sh*tty Advertising - YouTube
"advertising business model doesn't make sense." for publishers! Business insider makes 50cent per user per year. ARPU. OUCH! It's like worse than brand awareness banner advertising. They recently started long-form reports to buy on vertical/topics like gigaom did. // news is free. analysis isn't (in-depth, maybe personal brand, industry standing (like TechCrunch turned out to be: worked for it many long nights for years. and then it all came crashing down rather quickly because the figure-head overstretched himself and wasn't in it for the long-run to do it as independent business) ... but don't to cottage cheese Wall Street a-like factory). // &!

Is this the end for the Freedom of Information Act? - BBC News
The commission's remit is to look at two substantive issues that officials keep complaining about: "whether the operation of the Act adequately recognises the need for a 'safe space' for policy development and implementation and frank advice", and whether complying with the act is too much of a burden. [...] The safe space? So what about the "safe space" arguments? Under current law, section 35 of the Act allows the withholding of policy development work, private office communications & letters between ministers. If that isn't enough, section 36 allows ministers to withhold other information that would undermine the safe space for discussion. [...] That is, more or less, the information that a good transparency law should publish. It is supposed to help us find cover-ups, incompetence and crookedness by the powerful. [...] there have been no individual releases that have actually caused any problems. [well, if u dont know what 2 ask 4 specifically, u dont ask #insider #whistleblower ]

Kara Swisher has lost. | PandoDaily
As Fortune’s Dan Primack points out, as part of Vox, Re/Code now has investors in common with “Square, Uber, Dropbox, Spotify, Instacart, Jawbone, Lookout, Flipkart, etc.” We can argue — and I do, obviously — that having investors in common with companies you cover, or even having investors you cover, is a conflict that can be managed with fierce reporting and clear disclosures. The best example I can offer is that Pando has investors in common with both Uber and Secret. Swisher and Mossberg have made clear they see things differently: Journalism will always suffer when there are investors in common. // &! recode.net/2015/05/26/a-note-to-our-readers/ &! qz.com/412195/comcast-investor-in-vox-media-and-recode-could-end-up-buying-them-both/ &! pando.com/2015/05/27/with-buzzfeed-announcing-ipo-plans-and-comcast-interested-in-vox-let-the-dystopian-future-of-media-begin/

Want to understand the secret of Vice’s success? Wait and watch | PandoDaily
Most content startups have two things in common with my three year old: - They have an incredibly hard time apologizing when they’ve done something bad. (Ok, that’s all startups.) - They totally underestimate the value of patience. Crazy patience. Watching grass grow kind of patience. Mr. Miyagi killing flies with chopsticks kind of patience. To a three year old– or most startups– patience is like purgatory. Waiting five seconds for Animal Mechanicals to load on Netflix is the worst punishment Eli can imagine. Ditto, a content company forced to actually organically growing an audience through years of day-after-day production of differentiated work. Why do that when you can raise millions of dollars and employ every link-bait, social, listicle, SEO trick in the book to grow now?
