The “double-edged sword” faced by local and foreign female journalists in the Middle East

Baited links in emails is nothing new for users of modern technology, from journalists to ordinary people. Being hacked by individuals associated with Russian or other foreign servers is unfortunately also not uncommon.

How one journalist used postcards to report on gentrification in his Boston neighborhood

It’s a warm afternoon in mid-April and journalist Jorge Caraballo Cordovez makes his way down a busy street in East Boston. Passing convenience stores, a Colombian bakery, and a hair salon, Caraballo stops to talk with nearly every passerby in this primarily Latino neighborhood in Boston, Mass. He hands everyone a postcard, and speaking in...

With The Lily, The Washington Post wants to draw young women in (but won’t do a subscription hard sell)

It’s not that The Washington Post itself doesn’t post plenty of content that is appropriate for millennial women to read. But The Lily, a “publication for women” that the Post launched last week, starts with the premise that a lot of young women simply aren’t reading the Post at all and would respond better to...

Is there a Trump tweet for that? Quartz’s latest bot experiment surfaces similar tweets from the president’s archives

Donald J. Trump contains multitudes. The president’s 140-character official statements have been a source of much schadenfreude on Twitter, where critics — with no shortage of glee — regularly surface old statements from the president that contradict recent stances or otherwise foreshadow current critiques of Trump’s own presidency. There’s a tweet for every occasion. In...

From jobs to journalism: Task & Purpose is finding a niche reporting on veterans’ issues

For some soldiers, the hardest part about war is coming home from it. Beyond post traumatic stress disorder or other battlefield wounds, many veterans also suffer from conditions like adjustment disorder that complicate the process of acclimating to civilian life.

Want a “news-style soft article”? That’ll be $15. Or splurge and discredit a journalist for $55,000

“????,” or “News-style soft article.” Want to discredit a journalist? That’ll be $55,000. 100,000 real people’s signatures on a Change.org petition? $6,000. And those Chinese “soft articles” can be gotten for as little as USD $15. The folks at security software company Trend Micro studied Chinese, Russian, Arabic/Middle Eastern, and English marketplaces and found that...

Bloomberg Businessweek gets a two-tiered paywall, a substantial price increase, and a new look

Bloomberg Businessweek has a big new interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook — and it would really like you to pay to read it.

There’s also “a new regionalized email newsletter,” Daily IQ, only for subscribers. Here are the...

What are the ethics of using AI for journalism? A panel at Columbia tried to tackle that question

Journalism is becoming increasingly automated. From the Associated Press using machine learning to write stories to The New York Times’ plans to automate its comment moderation, outlets continue to use artificial intelligence to try and streamline their processes or make them more efficient. But what are the ethical considerations of AI? How can journalists legally...

India’s The Ken publishes one longform story each weekday. So far, subscribers are willing to pay

“So, one must pay for journalism?” reads one question on the FAQ page for The Ken, a subscription-based English-language business news outlet out of Bangalore, India. “Yes” is the publication’s one-word answer. The site has stuck to a careful, quality-over-quantity approach since its official launch in the fall of 2016, pushing out one piece of...

With its new Reader Center, The New York Times wants to forge deeper connections with its readers

Money and politics: A new report covers the advantages — and pressures — of the BBC compared to US news orgs

Those disheartened by the way that U.S. media organizations covered the 2016 election likely long for the American equivalent of the BBC: a large, publicly funded broadcast organization free of the commercial pressures that made Donald Trump a permanent fixture of news programs in the year leading up to his victory. But not even the...

Newsonomics: The New York Times’ redesign aims to match the quality of its products to its journalism

The New York Times, with a little help from automation, is aiming to open up most articles to comments

The New York Times’ strategy for taming reader comments has for many years been laborious hand curation.

For the past few months, the Times has been testing a new tool...

85 percent of Americans use mobile devices to access news — and seniors are driving that number up

Most people in the U.S. — 85 percent of U.S. adults — have used a mobile device to access news at some point, up from around just 50 percent in 2013. But put aside any assumptions about which groups of people are responsible for the big increases. More than two thirds (67 percent) of Americans...
