Good editors must be thoughtful when showing readers hard truths, like photos of dead bodies - Poynter
“Not a lot of thought was given to the impact that the image would have with the community and the audience,” Balta told me. “The Latino community is made to feel like it’s being taken advantage of.”

The AP did make different choices on other platforms, Haven said. When they sent the photo to their members, they ensured that it could not automatically publish. On Facebook, they pushed out other images first, so that users had to click through to see the photo in question. In AP mobile alerts, users did not see the image until they clicked through to the story. But for Twitter, he said, unless they divorced the photo from the story, they could not avoid a thumbnail of the image in the tweet.

Hundreds of villages lose their GP surgery as crisis grows across country

Aggression Detectors: The Unproven, Invasive Surveillance Technology Schools Are Using to Monitor Students
At the heart of the device is what the company calls a machine learning algorithm. Our research found that it tends to equate aggression with rough, strained noises in a relatively high pitch, like D’Anna’s coughing. A 1994 YouTube clip of abrasive-sounding comedian Gilbert Gottfried (“Is it hot in here or am I crazy?”) set off the detector, which analyzes sound but doesn’t take words or meaning into account. Although a Louroe spokesman said the detector doesn’t intrude on student privacy because it only captures sound patterns deemed aggressive, its microphones allow administrators to record, replay and store those snippets of conversation indefinitely

Media companies liable for Facebook comments made by others, court finds
Mr Voller said the comments, on 10 Facebook posts published in 2016 and 2017, carried a series of false and defamatory imputations including that he attacked a Salvation Army officer who visited him in detention and left the man blind in one eye.

He did not ask for the comments to be taken down by the media outlets but launched defamation proceedings against them in the Supreme Court, arguing that they had "published" the comments of third parties.

Thinking in multiple frames: How journalism can be more collaborative
Next, after scrutinizing yourself, you interview your audience, extensively. At the Stanford Hasso Plattner Institute of Design, the d.school, they call this “starting with the user.” For me, as a journalist, this means starting at the finish line, with the people you’re trying to reach, and working backwards. You don’t just imagine your audience, you get to know them very, very, well. Who needs this story the most? How do they explain what’s going on? What words, ideas and information do they use to frame it?

Robot journalists revive hyperlocal communities left behind by declining regional media | Media news
"Local media no longer cover local sports below a certain level in the league system," said Campbell.

"In most cases, the choice is not between a well-written text by a journalist, or an automated article produced by a robot. The choice is between a robot text, or no text at all."

The ultimate judge here is the audience and, by the looks of it, readers do not really mind. In a small survey of 102 people by MittMedia, the founder of United Robots, 68 percent of respondents said they did not even realise the article was written by a robot.

More strikingly [parent company] Maximus has started extracting the profit: in 2018 it took £18.1m out of the company in dividends - up from £12m in 2017, the first year it paid itself a dividend."

As of December, publishers will no longer be allowed to send out newsletters on WhatsApp » Nieman Journalism Lab

Newsletters had been a gray area on WhatsApp, and news publishers that were sending them out had known that the platform could put an end to them at some point.

Twitter is removing precise-location tagging on tweets — a small win for privacy but a small loss for journalists and researchers » Nieman Journalism Lab
It quickly became clear that the dedicated could fake their location. And more recently it came out that, while Twitter would let you tag a tweet with a broad location (“London”), it for years was still attaching much more precise GPS data that, while not publicly visible, could be accessed via the Twitter API. (A nice way to figure out where someone who just made you angry online is right now. 2009 was a simpler, dumber time, privacy-wise.)

Not many people ever used the precise location feature, those who did weren’t always representative of Twitter users more broadly, and given its potential for leakiness, it’s probably a good thing that Twitter is killing it. (I had it turned on by default for a while, but search tells me my last geolocated tweet was two years ago.)

But its loss will be felt to journalists, researchers, and anyone else who used that data to connect the vast expanse of social media to actual real-world locations — which could tell us important things about our neighborhoods, cities, states, and beyond.

AI deployments on the rise as NHS invests in technology to deliver improved patient experience
Three quarters of NHS trusts are still reliant on pen and paper to complete clinical documentation. Although high, this figure is down from 93% in 2017
One in four trusts are currently implementing some form of speech recognition to reduce the burden of clinical documentation on healthcare staff
The cost of secretarial support to complete clinical documentation is still high, with one trust spending £140,000 last year on agency secretarial support for patient records.
Only one in five trusts reported they had deployed artificial intelligence
Despite this, double that figure (38%) are considering it, with a further 8% planning on deployments in the next 12 months

Between Objectivity and Openness—The Mediality of Data for Journalism | Lesage | Media and Communication
Abstract  A number of recent high profile news events have emphasised the importance of data as a journalistic resource. But with no definitive definition for what constitutes data in journalism, it is difficult to determine what the implications of collecting, analysing, and disseminating data are for journalism, particularly in terms of objectivity in journalism. Drawing selectively from theories of mediation and research in journalism studies we critically examine how data is incorporated into journalistic practice. In the first half of the paper, we argue that data's value for journalism is constructed through mediatic dimensions that unevenly evoke different socio-technical contexts including scientific research and computing. We develop three key dimensions related to data's mediality within journalism: the problem of scale, transparency work, and the provision of access to data as 'openness'. Having developed this first approach, we turn to a journalism studies perspective of journalism's longstanding "regime of objectivity", a regime that encompasses interacting news production practices, epistemological assumptions, and institutional arrangements, in order to consider how data is incorporated into journalism's own established procedures for producing objectivity. At first sight, working with data promises to challenge the regime, in part by taking a more conventionalist or interpretivist epistemological position with regard to the representation of truth. However, we argue that how journalists and other actors choose to work with data may in some ways deepen the regime's epistemological stance. We conclude by outlining a set of questions for future research into the relationship between data, objectivity and journalism.
