Journalists Aren’t the Enemy of the People. But We’re Not Your Friends. Mr.
What lessons can the UK media learn from US reporting on Trump? If one wanted a metaphor for the perils and trials of modern political journalism, then perhaps the shirtless man with a glockenspiel who has been hammering away outside the Houses of Parliament can provide one (as well as a nifty rendition of Axel F).
Glockenspiel man provided the noisy background music for the momentous transition from Theresa May to the great dissembler. He made a good fist of drowning out every political interview on every major broadcast channel last week as Boris Johnson made it to Downing Street. If only there were some soundproof structure where politicians could be quietly interviewed without external interruption. Big-money investors are propping up partisan websites to fill the local news vacuum - Axios. How news outlets are dealing with the 'moral dimension' of covering Trump and his racist tweets. President Trump launched a bigoted attack against four minority congresswomen on Sunday morning.
His tweets were straight up racist. Did the news media accurately describe it that way? By and large, no, most major news outlets did not do that. Reporters and anchors took the story seriously but largely leaned on "critics," primarily Democrats, and cited their accusations of racism. Conspiracyland: La conexión rusa con las conspiraciones de Seth Rich. WASHINGTON — In the summer of 2016, Russian intelligence agents secretly planted a fake report claiming that Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was gunned down by a squad of assassins working for Hillary Clinton, giving rise to a notorious conspiracy theory that captivated conservative activists and was later promoted from inside President Trump’s White House, a Yahoo News investigation has found.
Russia’s foreign intelligence service, known as the SVR, first circulated a phony “bulletin” — disguised to read as a real intelligence report —about the alleged murder of the former DNC staffer on July 13, 2016, according to the U.S. federal prosecutor who was in charge of the Rich case. That was just three days after Rich, 27, was killed in what police believed was a botched robbery while walking home to his group house in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C., about 30 blocks north of the Capitol. Seth Rich: Un asesinato, convertido en un gran bulo conspirativo en Washington. Seth Rich podría haber sido una víctima de asesinato más en la capital de Estados Unidos.
Is the business model for American national news “Trump plus rolling scandals”? And is that sustainable? Editor’s note: Nearly a decade ago, freshly minted Ph.D. in hand, C.W.
Anderson wrote his first Nieman Lab post. Today, several books and tens of thousands of tweets later, he’s a professor of media and communication at the University of Leeds.

Lívia Vieira, a Brazilian journalism researcher and professor, recently interviewed Chris for the Brazilian media publication Farol Jornalismo, and I’m happy to present a lightly edited English-language version of it.
They discuss, among other things, the role metrics play in contemporary newsrooms, the state of “post-industrial journalism,” and paths to take in doing academic research on journalism.

Trump's shock factor wears off, causing a slump for the media - Axios. Trump's shock factor wears off, causing a slump for the media - Axios. How The New Yorker is capitalizing on its Trump bump. When The New Yorker put its site behind a metered paywall in November of 2014, the expectation was that traffic would go down.
Not only did traffic increase 30 percent within a few months (it’s now 15.6 million uniques), but subscriptions grew 85 percent year over year. Then came the election, which delivered The New Yorker’s biggest month ever in subscription growth in January, when it sold 100,000, a 300 percent increase over the year-ago month. Circulation is now the highest it’s ever been, at 1.1 million, a combination of print/digital, print-only and digital-only. Trump's shock factor wears off, causing a slump for the media - Axios. Hating on journalists the way Trump and his core supporters do is not an act of press criticism. It’s a way of doing politics. “Hate movements” are the mobilization of resentment against a particular group of people for political purposes.
When journalists are the group targeted, those of us who believe in a free press have a right to be worried, and a duty to understand. I am going to focus on the hate movement against journalists that President Trump is leading in the U.S. But I am not saying this kind of movement originated in America. I am not claiming that it is anything “new.” Is the business model for American national news “Trump plus rolling scandals”? And is that sustainable?

Medios de comunicación en crisis , por Ignacio Ramonet. Nada simboliza mejor el desasosiego de la prensa francesa, frente a una alarmante baja en su difusión, que la reciente disposición del diario Libération, otrora maoísta, de favorecer la toma de control de su capital por el banquero Edouard de Rothschild...
Hace poco, el grupo Socpresse, que publica unos 70 títulos, entre ellos Le Figaro, L’Express, L’Expansion y decenas de diarios regionales, fue comprado a su vez por un fabricante de armas, Serge Dassault.

Why Trump can’t stop talking to the press. Jon Stewart is absolutely right Here. About 1,300 U.S. communities have totally lost news coverage, UNC news desert study finds. It’s hardly a secret that news deserts are spreading, but just how bad is it? A comprehensive new study released today by the University of North Carolina’s School of Media and Journalism shows that far more U.S. communities have totally lost news coverage — more than 1,300 — than previously known.
Top findings: About 20 percent of all metro and community newspapers in the United States — about 1,800 — have gone out of business or merged since 2004, when about 9,000 were being published.Hundreds more have scaled back coverage so much that they’ve become what the researchers call “ghost newspapers.” Almost all other newspapers still publishing have also scaled back, just less drastically.Online news sites, as well as some TV newsrooms and cable access channels, are working hard to keep local reporting alive, but these are taking root far more slowly than newspapers are dying. Hence the 1,300 communities that have lost all local coverage. Comprehensive, searchable database 2. The crisis in journalism has become a crisis for our democracy.

The project expects to double the number of placements to 28, co-founder Steve Waldman told me this week. Then the pace will quicken. "We do need to keep refining," he said, "but if all goes well we hope to get to 250 in year three. " That would put Report for America on a path to fielding 1,000 local reporters by 2022, Waldman's stated goal.
The gating factor is securing a quantum jump in support from foundations or from a few key individual contributors. Report for America had 780 applicants for 13 spots in the first cohort, and 85 organizations tried to secure the reporting help. The Media Bubble is Real — And Worse Than You Think. How did big media miss the Donald Trump swell? News organizations old and new, large and small, print and online, broadcast and cable assigned phalanxes of reporters armed with the most sophisticated polling data and analysis to cover the presidential campaign. The overwhelming assumption was that the race was Hillary Clinton’s for the taking, and the real question wasn’t how sweeping her November victory would be, but how far out to sea her wave would send political parvenu Trump. Today, it’s Trump who occupies the White House and Clinton who’s drifting out to sea—an outcome that arrived not just as an embarrassment for the press but as an indictment.
In some profound way, the election made clear, the national media just doesn’t get the nation it purportedly covers. What went so wrong? Story Continued Below. Analyze Your Local News EnvironmentThe Expanding News Desert. The Expanding News Desert. From our very beginnings as a nation, newspapers have played a vital role in building community. Strong newspapers fostered a sense of geographic identity and in the process nurtured social cohesion and grassroots political activism.

The advertisements they carried drove local commerce and regional economic growth by putting potential customers together with local businesses. Ron Heifetz, professor at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, describes a newspaper as “an anchor” because it “reminds a community every day of its collective identity, the stake we have in one another and the lessons of our history.

Press freedom was not invented in the United States, but there are few nations in which the importance of an independent press has been so closely woven into its long history.
This great American tradition of civic respect for truth and truth-telling is now under threat. Donald Trump is not the first US president to attack the press or to feel unfairly treated by it.
