Media Commentary — Callie Schweitzer

The process of getting news involves more choice than ever. We have access to unlimited options and sources to fill what seems like ever more limited time.

Listicles, aggregation, and content gone viral: How 1800s newspapers prefigured today’s Internet

That’s Ryan Cordell, a Northeastern University professor who researches virality in 19th-century newspapers, during a talk he gave recently at MIT. It was a common practice for 19th-century newspapers to republish poems, fiction excerpts, and even lists of facts that were originally published elsewhere. Editors would subscribe to many newspapers and would cut out things they thought were interesting, relevant, or fit a space on the page that they needed to fill and then republish them in their own papers, Cordell explained. “Many 19th-century newspapers are comprised primarily of content from other newspapers,” he said.
