The future of the newspaper

Digitalization is already part of the newspaper, both in terms of the production process and distribution. And the dual structure of print and digital media is likely to persist, write Thomas Steinfeld and Lothar Müller. The ultimate triumph of digital over print media is by no means imminent.

 

70 journalists died on the job in 2013

At least 70 journalists were killed on the job in 2013, including 29 who died covering the civil war in Syria

 

The year we contextualize the news

 

My prediction isn’t particularly snazzy. It doesn’t require drones or sensors or wearables. It gets back to common sense, highlighting our role as an industry in creating informed citizens. 2014 will be the year of contextualization.

 

Interrogating the network: The year in social media research

 

Editor’s note: There’s a lot of interesting academic research going on in digital media — but who has time to sift through all those journals and papers?

The veracity of viral

 

2014 is going to be the year of a big debate about what news is — and especially about whether and how news organizations can ethically report on activity in the virtual world.

 

News that anticipates the reader’s needs

The year 2014 is going to be all about you. And me. And him and her. It’s going to be all about all of us — and what we are doing on all our devices. The job in news is to be exactly there for people, no matter what they’re doing or where they’re doing it, to take advantage of their platforms and deliver the best journalism we

can for that device — what I calladaptive journalism.

Understanding the billionaire media gambles

Our journalism business never ceases to provide surprises and fodder for speculation — that’s what makes this year-end round of prediction posts so much fun and, often, so far off base. For example, none of the Lab’s prognosticators a year ago predicted that one billionaire would toss $250 million into a business that has been dying for years, while another would pony up the same sum to launch an as-yet un-named and largely mysterious “new mass media organization.”

Big can learn from small in public radio

Let’s make it clear from the start that the new year will not bring final resolution to the hot pursuit of a methodology for determining impact. Nor will we find a solid new business model to ease the pressures brought by having to deliver sharper content across more platforms and, it seems, with greater speed than ever before. Not yet. But public media is well past its crossroads, and far enough along some new paths that we’re able to see patterns emerge.

Cemaat vs. AKP geriliminde yurttaş gazeteciliği… Birkaç not…

In Uncategorized on December 23, 2013 at 12:17

Yurttaş Gazeteciliği/ Vatandaş Haberciliği üzerine kafa yorarken elimizdeki çevrimiçi araçlar ve mobil cihazların artmasıyla bir süredir özellikle bizzat habere konu olacak enformasyonu üretebilme çabalarını vurguluyoruz. Birkaç haftadır açıkça süren gerilim ise ortalama vatandaşın bizzat müdahil olabileceği alanlarda sürmüyor. Tabi ki daha az imkanlar olsa da buralardan da enformasyon üretilebilir. Ama sanırım vatandaş gazetecileri bu dönemde “editoryal” denebilecek işler yapabilir. Hatta buna daha çok ihtiyaç var gibi gözüküyor.

Embedded image permalink

 

Editöryalden kastım varolan enformasyonun düzenlenmesiyle ilgili. Ortaya çıkan bilgilerin bir süzgeçten geçirilmesi ve iki taraf dışında bir perspektifle diğer vatandaşlara sunulabilmesi gerek. Örneğin Halkbank’ın değerlendirilmesinden, verilen rüşvet miktarına kadar çıkan rakamların nesnel bir şekilde değerlendirilmesi. Ya da atılan hukuki adımların ya da terminolojinin açıklanması gibi.. Ya da Fethullah Gülen’in bedduasının Türkçesinin açıklanması gibi bilgi kırıntıları da olabilir. Söylemsel kavganın yapısökümünde mizah ve parodi de önemli bir boyut kazanacaktır. Örneğin kefenli karşılamayla Ku Klux Klan gibi Amerikan ırkçılarının ritüelleri sırasında giydikleri arasındaki parallelliğe işaret de anlamlı olabilir.

Gerilim sırasında çıkan malzemenin değerlendirilmesi, haritalandırılması, organizasyonuna her zamankinden daha çok ihtiyaç var…

Freedom of the Press Foundation has taken charge of the DeadDrop project, an open-source whistleblower submission system originally coded by the late transparency advocate Aaron Swartz.

Twitter’s changing its direct messaging policy, some journalists are ready to take advantage

Twitter is changing an old policy that meant that you could only be DM’d by — that is, you could only receive a direct message from — users that you follow. (So if I follow John Doe, John Doe can DM me — but if John Doe follows me and I don’t return the favor, he can’t.) This has led to all sorts of confusion among Twitter users and endless plaints to “please follow me so I can DM you.”

The biggest newspapers in the United States, Britain and Europe still reserve pages of the most serious political and foreign policy analysis for older white men.

Stallman on making technology compatible with a free society

Writing in Wired, Richard Stallman — founder of the Free Software Foundation, which puts the GNU in GNU/Linux – writes about the relationship between software freedom and a free society. Proprietary software — opaque to its users, liable to subversion for the purposes of governments and corporations — is incompatible with a free, democratic society. The temptation to collect data, and, once collect it, to abuse it, is irresistible for the fallible humans who make up the state. Systems have to be designed to keep their users free and private — there is no way to make people secure unless their tools are secure, too. Stallman sets out the various forms of surveillance and control, from no-fly lists to web-tracking, and proposes ways to make them safe for a free society.

CPJ issues first-ever report on press freedom in the United States

 

Barack Obama leaves a press conference in the East Room of the White House August 9. (AFP/Saul Loeb)

Josh Stearns says,

New Report Finds Obama’s Policies Threaten an Independent Press

The Committee to Protect Journalists has released its first-ever special report on freedom of the press in the United States. For many years, CPJ has documented attacks on journalists in many countries around the world. The report focused on how policies and practices of the Obama administration disrupt relationships between journalists and government sources, allow officials to circumvent scrutiny by the press, and create a chilling environment for whistleblowers who might otherwise serve as journalistic sources. The report also discusses the ramifications of NSA surveillance, which leaves journalists and their sources reluctant to communicate electronically.

The newsonomics of 2014 for the German press

See also part one of Ken’s report from Germany.

HAMBURG — In 2011, a German regional media group sponsored the World After Advertising conference in Dusseldorf, at which I spoke. The title seemed a little odd back then. Now, it seems prophetic.

With print ad revenues declining faster in Germany than in the U.S., publishers are pulling out the stops on reader revenue — variations of all-access and digital-only subscriptions. But they are also starting to talk about that very world after advertising.

The newsonomics of 10 ways we’ll judge 2014

At the World Publishing Expo held in Berlin this week, two CEOs of major international news companies — Andrew Miller of The Guardian and Mathias Döpfner of Axel Springer — were asked a question: On a scale of one to 10, how far along were there companies in their digital transition? How far have they traveled on the road to where they need to be?

Journalism roundup: Q: Guardian social and community editor Joanna Geary heads off to Twitter U.K.

Rethinking shoe leather and professional boundaries in reporting — and academia

I was clueless about pretty much everything regarding academia and my field when I entered grad school three years ago (as opposed to merely “most things” now), and in retrospect, that cluelessness should have worried me more than it did at the time. Not just for my own sake, but for the sake of the field I was getting into: I had been a working journalist for at least four years, one interested in digital media and planning to go into academia. Why had I barely heard of any of the research that had been conducted about journalism? Why was Jay Rosen just about the only academic studying journalism that I was aware of before I started looking into grad school?

 

Protecting journalism v journalists

The Knight Foundation’s Eric Newton draws attention to the knottier issues around a proposed federal shield law for journalists and urges critics to be included in the debate about whether it is better to have a constitutional or merely a legislative protection.

I believe a shield law that protects job descriptions is fatally flawed. At a Knight event in Washington last week, investigative journalist Scott Armstrong argued strongly that the government will slice out exceptions to protecting national-security reporters. “More cases are emerging because it’s never been easier to leak or investigate leaks,” Newton writes. “Reacting to a new generation of digital whistleblowers, like Chelsea Manning, Armstrong said this administration began to treat all leaks ‘as if they were espionage cases.’ There have been seven leak cases under the Obama administration, and only four in all of history before; Savage called challenging informants the ‘new norm.’”

Metadata May Not Catch Many Terrorists, But It’s Great at Busting Journalists’ Sources

The National Security Agency says that the telephone metadata it collects on every American is essential for finding terrorists. And that’s debatable. But this we know for sure: Metadata is very useful for tracking journalists and discovering their sources.

Print newspapers could become ‘luxury’: Amazon chief

Amazon chief executive and new Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos said Wednesday that print newspapers could one day become a luxury item.

The newsonomics of selling more stuff

It’s a certified trend: Thanks to digital media, we’re consuming more stuff.

This week, we saw the fairly astounding news that mobile minutes are doubling the amount of time Americans are spending online, with smartphone and tablet usage the great multipliers. Amazon reports that its Kindle owners buy four times more books than those who buy only print. Online video watching has increased at least 600 percent over the past five years — averaging more than 200 videos, totaling over 22 hours, per month.

We can see this shift in our own lives and in the lives of media customers. So it shouldn’t be surprising that the emerging media and publishing business model can be summed up simply, if maybe inelegantly: Sell more stuff.

The Pulitzer Prize Board wants more entries in editorial writing, especially from online news sites

That’s according to this open letter to news organizations from Paul Tash, the board’s chair and chief executive of the Tampa Bay Times:

For 97 years, the Pulitzer Prizes have recognized excellence in American editorial writing. It’s a proud and robust tradition. Vividly expressing the institutional opinion of publications large and small, the winners have engaged a marvelous range of issues, stirring debate and often having an important impact on society — from Main Street to the White House.

With that in mind, we want to renew our dedication to high-quality editorial writing and to seek broader participation in the category, especially among small and medium-size newspapers and news sites. We want to hear your voices.

Filiz Taylan Yüzak EFD’ye özel yazdı: George Brock’la GAZETECİLİĞİN GELECEĞİ KONULU BİR BEYİN FIRTINASI…

GAZETECİLİĞİN GELECEĞİ KONULU BİR BEYİN FIRTINASI…
26 Eylül 2013, Filiz Taylan Yüzak
İletişim: filiztaylanyuzak@gmail.com
 

Londra’daki Yazarlar ve Gazeteciler” adlı Meetup buluşmasının ilk konuğu Londra-City Üniversitesi’nin Gazetecilik Bölüm Başkanı, Profesör Dr. George Brock’tu. Bu toplantı için farklı ülkelerden gelmiş (Slovakya, Almanya, Türkiye, Hindistan, Yeni Zelanda, İrlanda, İngiltere, Finlandiya), ancak Londra’da yaşayan yaklaşık 10 gazeteci, gazeteci adayı ve gazetecilik öğrencisinden oluşan bizler, 17 Eylül akşamı Londra’nın fazlasıyla turistik ve popüler Covent Garden semtindeki bir Fransız lokantasında buluştuk.

Brock’un konuşması daha çok 3 Eylül 2013’te yayımlanan yeni kitabına (Out of Print: Newspaper, Journalism and the Business of News in the Digital Age” – “Baskısı Tükendi: Dijital Çağda Gazete, Gazetecilik ve Haber İşletmesi”) odaklandı. Basılı medyanın neden düşüşe geçtiğini ve dijital teknolojinin gazetecilik pratikleri üzerindeki etkilerini sorgulayan bu kitap, gazeteciliğin geleceği konusunda iyimser olmamız gerektiği savı üzerinde duruyor.

Kitap, gazetelerin internet sitelerinin basılı kopyalarından daha fazla tercih edildiği ve internetin haberleri gazetelerden daha hızlı ve daha çok kişiye dağıttığı günümüzde, gazeteciliğin küresel ölçekte yeniden düşünülmesi gerektiğini ve bu yeni teknolojinin taleplerini karşılamaya hazır olunması gerektiğini aktarıyor. Japonya’da, Almanya ve Finlandiya dışındaki Avrupa ülkelerinde (İngiltere de buna dahil) ve ABD’de gazete tirajlarının ve basılı versiyonun getirdiği reklam gelirlerinin düştüğü, baskı maliyetlerinin ise arttığı, “yurttaş gazeteciliğinin” ve sosyal medyanın etkisinin artık büyük olduğu dikkate alındığında, bu yeni iletişim çağında gazeteciliğin teori ve pratiğinin değişmesi gerekiyor. Brock konuşmasında bölgesel gazetelerin durumunun kötüye gittiğini, birçok online haber sitesinin başarılı olamadığını, habercilik kalitesinin günlük gazetelerdeki zaman baskısı yüzünden azaldığını anlattı. Artık orijinal haberciliğin yerini “churnalism” (yayık gazeteciliği)  almış durumda. Bu da hak ettiğinden daha düşük maaş alan “köle”lerin kendilerine halkla ilişkiler şirketleri tarafından gönderilen basın bültenlerini hızlıca yeniden yazdıkları bugünün gazetecilik pratiğine işaret etmekte.

Brock internetle birlikte enformasyon miktarının geçmişe oranla çok arttığını, ancak bunun her zaman güvenilir, saygın ve doğru enformasyon demek olmadığını anlattı. Ancak internetin gazete tirajlarının düşüşü konusunda günah keçisi haline getirildiğini söyledi: zira İngiltere’de ulusal çapta yayın yapan gazetelerin tirajları sanıldığı gibi internetin keşfiyle değil, televizyon ve radyoların yayına başladığı 1950’li yıllarda azalmaya başlamış.

Öte yandan dijital baskıların habere hızlı erişim dışında iki avantajı daha var: basılı gazeteler gibi çevreye zarar vermiyorlar; ayrıca tekzip ve düzeltmeler dijital baskılarda hemen yayımlanabiliyor. Gazete tirajlarının azalmasına cevaben, İngiltere’de yayımlanan beş günlük ve ciddi gazetenin ikisi, dijital gazete versiyonlarını paralı hale getirdiler. Bunlardan biri olan iş dünyası, ekonomi ve finans gazetesi Financial Times’ın dijital baskısı, basılı versiyonuna göre çok daha fazla satıyor. İngiliz gazetelerinin dijital abonelik sistemiyle ilgili daha fazla bilgi için “İngiltere’de basılı medyanın geleceği: abonelik sistemi ve ücretsiz yayınlar” adlı blog post’umu okuyabilirsiniz: http://londranotlari.wordpress.com/2013/07/28/ingilterede-basili-medyanin-gelecegi-abonelik-sistemi-ve-ucretsiz-yayinlar/
Peki gazetecilik mesleğinin ve bir haber aracı olarak gazetenin geçtiği bu zor dönemde Brock neden iyimserliği savunuyor ve önerdiği çözüm nedir? Brock öncelikle basılı gazetecilik reklamları gibi tek ve büyük bir gelir kapısının artık var olmayacağını kabul etmemiz gerektiğini söyledi. Bu gerçeğe bir an önce adapte olunması, yeni iş modellerinin ve gelir kaynaklarının geliştirilmesi gerekiyor, çünkü online yayıncılık şimdiye kadar yeni bir iş modeli bulabilmiş değil.

Yukarıda da belirtildiği gibi gazeteler artık haber değil, analiz, değerlendirme ve yorumları için okunuyor. Dolayısıyla basılı gazetelerin bir haber aracı ve kültürü olarak önemi, habere hızlı erişimi sağlayamadıklarından gelecekte azalacak. Ancak basılı gazeteler ölmeyecek, sadece dönüşecek. Örneğin günlük gazetelerin yerini haftalık gazeteler veya Pazar gazeteleri alacak, bazı gazeteler de dergi gibi uzmanlaşmış yayınlar haline gelecekler.

Brock’a göre bu geçiş ve değişim süreci yaşanırken gazetelerin başarılı olabilmesi için tek bir formül, sihirli bir değnek var olmayabilir. Ama burada aslolan, gazetecinin ahlak ve muhakeme duygusudur. “Yeni bir iletişim çağına girerken hiç kimse bu çağın ihtiyaçlarının tam olarak ne olacağını tahmin edemez. Tek yapabileceğimiz değişim sularında daha iyi yüzebilmek için donanımımızı artırmak olacaktır.”

Konuyla ilgili daha ayrıntılı bilgi için Brock’un 21. yüzyıl medyası ve gazeteciliği konusuna odaklanan kendi internet sitesine göz atabilirsiniz: http://georgebrock.net/

Is Al Jazeera America Simply CNN, Minus Wolf Blitzer?

It’s been just under a month since Al Jazeera America first hit the airwaves, and what a month it’s been — with the Syria story lurching from seemingly imminent U.S. strikes to a looming congressional vote to this weekend’s chemical weapons deal. The fast-churning news cycle has provided plenty of fodder for media watchers who wondered before the launch whether

Let’s consider Jeff Bezos’ runway.

“Runway” was one of the benefits he recently said his purchase of The Washington Post would give the institution — “runway” as in financial room.

We’ll have to stretch the metaphor to think about what it may mean. More length of runway, simply meaning more time to get the Post set in the right direction? More width of runway, meaning more room for more products and business models to be tested to find the best way forward? To stretch further: Are we talking landing or take-off?

Worth reading: NYT on jailed ‘journalist-agitator’ Barrett Brown, and silence surrounding his case

“Barrett Brown makes for a pretty complicated victim,” writes David Carr in his recent profile of the Dallas-based journalist “obsessed with the government’s ties to private security firms.” Brown, 32 has been in jail for a year. He faces charges that carry a combined penalty of more than 100 years in prison. Why does the gag order on his case matter to all of us? Carr explains.
