With scripted comedy videos, The Washington Post wants to provide “new entry points to the news”

Making fun of both Apple and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the same time isn’t easy, but The Washington Post somehow pulled it off. Earlier this month the newspaper’s video team published “Meet Sarah, the New Siri,” a short satirical video that used the stylings of Apple’s ads to poke fun at...

Newsonomics: Mort to Ferro: Take My Paper, Please! (and a few other headlines about the New York Daily News)

For much of the winter and spring, Michael Ferro was uncharacteristically quiet. Once he’d defeated Gannett’s hostile takeover attempt of his newly named Tronc, Ferro seemed to cease being the center of the news industry storm.

Breitbart's Low-Profile Editor: Bias Is in Story Selection

Even those with more than a passing familiarity to Breitbart News might be hard pressed to name its editor. That is intentional, explains a New York Times Magazine feature on 31-year-old Alex Marlow. He has been Breitbart's editor for four years now and keeps a low profile, even among staffers....

How Media Spread CIA’s Sectarian, Anti-Iran ‘Mideast Cold War’ Narrative
