The New News Reports of the death of the news media are highly premature, though you wouldn't know it from the media's own headlines. Ken Doctor goes far beyond those headlines, taking an authoritative look at the fast-emerging future. The Twelve Laws of Newsonomics reveal the kinds of news that readers will get and that journalists (and citizens) will produce as we enter the first truly digital news decade. A new Digital Dozen, global powerhouses from The New York Times, News Corp, and CNN to NBC, the BBC, and NPR will dominate news across the globe, Locally, a colorful assortment of emerging news players, from Boston to San Diego, are rewriting the rules of city reporting, Newsonomics provides a new sense of the news we'll get on paper, on screen, on the phone, by blog, by podcast, and via Facebook and Twitter. It also offers a new way to understand the why and how of the changes, and where the Googles, Yahoos and Microsofts fit in. Newsonomics pays special attention to media and journalism students in a chapter on the back-to-the-future skills they'll need, while marketing professionals get their own view of what the changes mean to them.

In a world of "alternative facts" and "post-truth" politics, producing public-interest journalism is more important than ever—but also more complex. This book examines how journalism is evolving to meet the demands of the digital media ecosystem, where lies often spread faster than truth, and where modern news consumers increasingly expect journalism to be a conversation, not a lecture. • Examines the historical roots of journalism's crisis while pushing the conversation toward promising experiments and solutions • Offers insights from digital-era disruptors and innovators, as well as long-time veterans of the news business • Provides context for the 2016 election's "fake news" phenomenon and explains—in clear and compelling prose—what savvy journalists are doing to rebuild trust in the real thing

The Watchdog That Didn’t Bark

The Financial Crisis and the Disappearance of Investigative Journalism

Author: Dean Starkman

Publisher: Columbia University Press

In this sweeping, incisive post mortem, Dean Starkman exposes the critical shortcomings that softened coverage in the business press during the mortgage era and the years leading up to the financial collapse of 2008. He locates the roots of the problem in the origin of business news as a market messaging service for investors in the early twentieth century. This access-dependent strain of journalism was soon opposed by the grand, sweeping work of the muckrakers. Propelled by the innovations of Bernard Kilgore, the great postwar editor of the Wall Street Journal, these two genres merged when mainstream American news organizations institutionalized muckraking in the 1960s, creating a powerful guardian of the public interest. Yet as the mortgage era dawned, deep cultural and structural shifts—some unavoidable, some self-inflicted—eroded journalism's appetite for its role as watchdog. The result was a deafening silence about systemic corruption in the financial industry. Tragically, this silence grew only more profound as the mortgage madness reached its terrible apogee from 2004 through 2006. Starkman frames his analysis in a broad argument about journalism itself, dividing the profession into two competing approaches—access reporting and accountability reporting—which rely on entirely different sources and produce radically different representations of reality. As Starkman explains, access journalism came to dominate business reporting in the 1990s, a process he calls "CNBCization," and rather than examining risky, even corrupt, corporate behavior, mainstream reporters focused on profiling executives and informing investors. Starkman concludes with a critique of the digital-news ideology and corporate influence, which threaten to further undermine investigative reporting, and he shows how financial coverage, and journalism as a whole, can reclaim its bite.

Interaction in Digital News Media

From Principles to Practice

Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan

Category: Social Science

Digital News Media (DNM) are characterized by their efforts to provide consumers with new content interaction experiences, which contrast with the more passive experiences provided by traditional news media. This book directly addresses these interaction experiences, taking the reader from underlying principles to actual practices. To meet this objective, the book undertakes a characterization of interactivity in DNM and explores the boundaries between storytelling and direct data access. It examines information visualization trends present in the media, and practices in non-fiction storytelling in the context of the current wave of VR technology. Moreover, it addresses how UX research and evaluation methods can be applied to inform the design of interactive media. It also analyzes the concept of Newsonomics and it examines the reform of intellectual property law and legislation governing authors' rights. The book concludes by analyzing the scientific production of interaction over the last 10 years, extracting the main conclusions, and highlighting the lessons that can be extracted from the previous chapters.

In 2009, a bipartisan Knight Commission found that while the broadband age is enabling an information and communications renaissance, local communities in particular are being unevenly served with critical information about local issues. Soon after the Knight Commission delivered its findings, The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) initiated a working group to identify crosscurrents and trends, and make recommendations on how the information needs of communities can be met in a broadband world.Steven Waldman and the FCC Working Group on the Information Needs of Communities produced this report, addressing the rapidly changing media landscape in a broadband age. The Information Needs of Communities looks not only at the changing face of media, but also at the relevant policy and regulatory situations, including the track record of the FCC. Finally, the report offers policy suggestions to help create the best media system ever seen.

»Wer bist du?«, fragte er flüsternd. »Ich bin Pascha, der Kerl aus dem Kühlfach vier.« »Aber du bist tot, du kannst nicht mit mir sprechen«, wandte er ein. »Hast du noch nie was von Nahtod gehört? Die Seele verlässt dem Körper und macht sich dann irgendwann auf den Weg durch den Tunnel. Aber hier ist kein Tunnel, ich weiß nicht, wo ich hin soll.« Dr. Martin Gänsewein trägt Dufflecoat, fährt Ente und sammelt Stadtpläne. Außerdem hat er täglich mit Leichen zu tun, denn er ist Rechtsmediziner - und zwar ein gewissenhafter. Wo die Seelen der Verstorbenen bleiben, überlässt er den Glaubenseinrichtungen der Angehörigen. Bis die Seele eines kleinkriminellen Prolls sich im Institut einnistet und behauptet, ermordet worden zu sein. Pascha verlangt von Gänsewein die Aufnahme der Ermittlungen ... Ungewöhnliche Krimis erfordern ungewöhnliche Lesungsorte. So geschehen am 18. März 2009 im Rahmen des Krimifestivals in München: Jutta Profijt hat im Sektionshörsaal der Pathologie gelesen.

Los periódicos están librando una cruenta batalla por sobrevivir en la era digital. La crisis económica y los nuevos hábitos de lectura introducidos por las nuevas tecnologías han provocado una caída de los ingresos publicitarios y una venta de ejemplares en los quioscos cada vez menor. El sector intenta buscar nuevos modelos de negocio en un mundo que lee más prensa que nunca, pero buena parte de ella se lee de forma gratuita en las ediciones en línea de los propios diarios y de otros operadores nacidos al amparo de internet. Las redacciones son las que están sufriendo en mayor medida este fenómeno, al ver reducidos drásticamente sus recursos, a la vez que deben incrementar la producción para alimentar no solo la edición impresa, sino también las distintas plataformas que emergen en webs, tabletas, smartphones y otros formatos audiovisuales.

Ein neuer Fall für Cormoran Strike Als der Romanautor Owen Quine spurlos verschwindet, bittet seine Frau den privaten Ermittler Cormoran Strike um Hilfe.

Der Schriftsteller hat soeben ein Manuskript vollendet, das scharfzüngige Porträts beinahe jeder Person aus seinem Bekanntenkreis enthält. Sollte das Buch veröffentlicht werden, würde es Leben zerstören – zahlreiche Menschen hätten also allen Grund, Quine zum Schweigen zu bringen. Als Quine tatsächlich tot aufgefunden wird, brutal ermordet unter bizarren Umständen, beginnt ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, um das wahre Motiv des skrupellosen Mörders aufzudecken – eines Mörders, wie Strike ihm noch nie zuvor begegnet ist ... Absolut fesselnd und voller unerwarteter Wendungen: Der Seidenspinner ist der zweite Roman der hochgelobten Krimiserie um den Ermittler Cormoran Strike und seine entschlossene junge Assistentin Robin Ellacott.
