Gawker was irresponsible, but the precedent Peter Thiel is setting is dangerous - Vox

The New York Times Won’t Skimp on the Cost of Journalism — Even if That Means Selling Itself | Re/code
It’s that kind of expensive-to-produce, influential reporting that makes the Times the Times, and the family owners, the Ochs-Sulzbergers, know that better than anyone. If — and here’s the kernel if — the business ever diminished to the point that required significant cuts to its editorial staff, the family, led by publisher Arthur Sulzberger, would seriously consider a sale to preserve it, multiple sources say. Curtailing the talent would destroy the paper’s very reason for being, the thinking goes. [...] The board has “obstinately stuck with the idea of a really, really large-scale, properly invested-in newsroom,” CEO Mark Thompson said in a recent interview with Public Editor Margaret Sullivan, adding that “it would be self-defeating to change that.” [...] The family’s focus is not on arbitrary numbers but on maintaining the quality and editorial independence of The New York Times.” [...] the business is shrinking while the price of its journalism is rising.

Advice for newspaper editors: Pay attention to BuzzFeed | Poynter.
succeeding across platforms by shifting from the product business to the platform business. [...] “You do not have a ‘mobile audience’ or a ‘print audience.’” They aren’t distinct audiences, he said, because most Americans are cross-platform news consumers. A majority of them use four devices or technologies to access news per week. “Technology is a user behavior, not an audience,” he said. The web rewards specialization, Rosenstiel said, so the old “general store” model is outmoded for newspapers. He said editors should ask themselves what it is that makes them indispensable.

Why I’m Bullish on the News - POLITICO Magazine
Go maximum mass or maximum specific. [...] News organizations are also going to have to mix and match revenue models. I see eight obvious ones: advertising, subscriptions, premium content, events, cross-media promotion, crowdfunding, micropayments and philanthropy. [...] Today, this same science culture, this civilization of engineers and math, is again on the rise. And to many, it feels like it’s running away with the future. [...] The point is that, for people who aren’t deep into math and science and technology, it is going to get far harder to understand the world going forward. || + http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/05/1-destroy-the-village-2-save-it-105923.html + http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/05/lords-of-the-viral-internet-105905.html + http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/04/brauchli-keller-interview-the-new-york-times-is-not-going-to-turn-into-buzzfeed-105900.html

Andreessen’s Advice To Old Media: “Burn The Boats”
Oh, and he points out, that the iPad will have a “fantastic browser.” No matter how many iPads the Apple sells, the Web will always be the bigger market. “There are 2 billion people on the Web,” he says. “The iPad will be a huge success if it sells 5 million units.”

As technology becomes ubiquitous, it goes mainstream.

Yes, there are still a lot of people and money in those boats—billions of dollars in revenue in some cases. “At risk is 80% of revenues and headcount,” Andreessen acknowledges, “but shift happens.” You’d have to be crazy to burn the boats. Crazy like Cortes.

Murdoch aims to tear up the online rule book - Telegraph
Beleaguered media executives have been toying with the idea of charging for content, but none has been so bold as to widely reintroduce the payment model most newspapers abandoned a decade ago. Mr Murdoch hopes charging for content will not only reverse News Corps fortunes – the company swung to a $3.4bn (£2bn) loss for the year to the end of June – but also revitalise the newspaper industry and ensure the future of quality journalism. "Quality journalism is not cheap, and an industry that gives away its content is simply cannibalising its ability to produce good reporting," Mr Murdoch said.

"The digital revolution has opened many new and inexpensive methods of distribution. But it has not made content free. Accordingly, we intend to charge for all our news websites. I believe that if we are successful, we will be followed by other media."
.
Murdochs idea is rigth wing and Michael Arrington from TechCrunch is on the left wing of the future of journalism debate.
- Economics decide.

NSFW: Trust me on the sunscreen (and the future of journalism)
And yet, I argued back, after camera phone dude helps us establish that the plane has crashed, who can we trust to tell us why it happened? While bloggers can own the first five minutes of any breaking story - a plane crash, a fire, a burglary - it’s always going to be the professional reporters who own the next five days, or five weeks. They walk the streets, work their contacts and - yes - trawl the blogosphere for eye-witness reports, and then take all of that information, analyse it, follow it up and ultimately provide an account of events that readers can trust.
