Why Readers Don’t Get the True Story — The Information
The costs of off-the-record reporting are increasingly greater than the benefits, as the culture of talking without attribution gives companies too much control. // lots of companies use this practice / PR ... for what? have good relationships, tend the relationships with reporters/journalists? Give them a sense of being in THEIR circle? From outsiders view it looks like 'patting on the head like a child?' // Sarah Lacy once talks about it that there must be more stuff than Techopus. But the cheerleaders within the bubble of success, fame, notoriety and money ... WILL not look, dig, investigate ... because they are hired as cheerleaders (pageviews business model)

Amazon a cyber-sweatshop? SARAH LACY praised the New York Times reporting on Amazon: "When you freak out the tech world, you're a powerful news organization." // "brutally efficient" 'white and blue collar jobs being exposed to the same treatment manual work and service sector jobs have been treated by competition and globalisation (flat and borderless world), for the last +30 years. "it's what you don't say and how it gets interpreted down the line." // Investigative Journalism! NYT (paper), a institution, a stalwart of investigative journalism, reporting, holding companies and people accountable, .... same along the line of bit.ly/1NRsG5N - One overlooked theme emerging from the Times’s Amazon story is the power of the paper itself. // this story underlines, is a data point in time, you can look back on. and say the world went this way such and such // competing on price is the easiest thing to do! the first thing in reach! its about the hard things that actually leverage/multiplier

Pando: 1500!
[P]aying for our journalism directly [...] less dependent on pageviews[.] Weve long understood that there were two types of article on Pando: The ones you absolutely couldnt find anywhere else, and the ones you possibly could. It’s the first kind that, for good or ill, have built Pando’s reputation. These are the articles in which, to quote John Gruber, we “Pando the hell out of a story.” Uber, Secret, the Techtopus -- regular readers know the hall of fame. Likewise our long-form profiles of inspiring entrepreneurs, PandoMonthly event series, and curve-ball regulars like The War Nerd and Brad Jonas’ brilliant illustrations. [...] By contrast, although we always try to avoid publishing linkbait and pure opinion, some of the posts which on the previous model might have been great for search traffic or guilty clicks have fallen off a cliff under the new model. Further proof that the high-traffic snackable content that’s good for advertisers isn’t necessarily valued by readers.

Kara Swisher: Tech's Most Powerful Snoop -- NYMag
“These people were very accessible,” Swisher recalls of a younger Bezos and his cohort, “and you met them before they were who they are now. When people get rich, people lick them up and down all day, so some of them morph into thinking that being licked up and down all day is their reality and that everything that comes out of their mouths are golden nuggets. Everyone starts to rewrite history, but if you knew them, and have some historical knowledge …” [ the Ass Hole effect - As people get richer, they are more likely to feel entitled, to exploit others, and to cheat. http://www.reddit.com/r/TrueReddit/comments/2afgt4/the_ahole_effect_what_wealth_does_to_the_brain/ - http://www.alternet.org/culture/ahole-effect-what-wealth-does-brain ] / + http://valleywag.gawker.com/even-tech-bloggers-hate-themselves-1605371279 / "“She’s one of these CEOs who likes to be lauded,” “Personally, I think she’s remarkable.

TechCrunch editor says she’s “a cheerleader” who would have totally caved to Obama over Snowden | PandoDaily
writing about the intersection of technology and power isn’t a fucking game any more… That’s not cute. It’s not “sweet.” It’s disgusting. With that quote Tsotsis told the world there will never be anything on TechCrunch that remotely risks upsetting powerful people and, if it does, they have her personal guarantee it’ll be removed promptly
