D it still respects her in return there s hope or something Gross Hmmmmmmm All three chapters on Vice were clotted with mistakes Lots of them The truth promised in Merchants of Truth was often not true While trying to corroborate certain claims I notice Fascinating telling of the last 20 years of the journalism industry through in depth looks at four companies The New York Times the Washington Post BuzzFeed and Vice I knew a lot of this having followed and worked on some of it eg social media rise but I still learned some things that made the book worth it I also didn t agree with the way she characterized some of the things I knew aboutThe story of the news industry in the last twenty years is one of managed decline The Posts revenue was 30% of what it had been when Jeff Bezos purchased it and their newsroom had shrunk by almost half Similar trend for the Times Print circulation provided all the revenue but it was declining digital was rowing but providing no revenue and classified advertising which used to account for 40% of revenue was taken almost entirely out by Craigslist Monstercom and The Internet Shrinkage Led internet Shrinkage led a shortage of young people working there and a lack of a culture of innovation In recent years the Times Post WSJ and others have finally figured out how to embrace digital and make digital subscriptions work Maybe people just needed a decade or two before they were willing to pay for online content or maybe the publishers could have innovated faster it s a very interesting uestion but I tend to think innovation could have been much faster but not overnight But as very interesting uestion but I tend to think innovation could have been much faster but not overnight But as mid 2020 the NYT has 6 million subscribers who provide 64% of their revenueOne of the themes the book talks about a lot is the separation between church and state in a newspaper the notion that advertisers should have zero influence over what journalists write or cover Church and state have been separated for a long time for a ood reason if they aren t the truth can be hidden by paying money But the declining legacy print business and the loss of classified meant better online advertising needed to be figured out to save the papers And upstarts like BuzzFeed and Vice led the charge in figuring out what it looked like basically an in house ad agency that produced fully native advertising These articles which were paid for and thus positive were mostly clearly marked but not in obvious ways Church and state ot intermixed and the result at Vice and BuzzFeed has been that advertisers can control content Less so at NYTPost but still a tension that you have to believe influences thingsBut the biggest issue is that with online we have ability to measure clicks and clicks mean pageviews which mean ad dollars So now we live in a world where editors value content that Les Discours De M Le Prince De Bismarck Vol 13 generates clicks and a scoreboard can be created Impressively at Buzzfeed salaries were tied to how many clicks. Ous state of the news business told by one of our most eminent journalists Jill Abramson follows four companies The New York Times The Washington Post BuzzFeed and VICE Media over a decade of disruption and radical adjustment The new digital reality nearly kills two venerable newspapers with an aging readership while creating two media behemoths with a ballooning and fickle audience of millennials Weet to know the defenders of the legacy presses as well as the ou.

A writers pieces enerated And while the editors at the Times knew that human judgement mattered as to what news people should know even there clicks started to rule the dayAlthough the editors reassured the troops that they were not engaged in an arms race for page views a number of journalists believed all of these changes were dumbing down the paper and that editors were too focused on how many clicks stories ot Unlike the Post the did not have screens displaying the constantly changing popularity data although the showed which stories were trendingIf even the NYT falls to clicks and BuzzFeedViceHuffPoetc are all about clicks this leads us to content that is ood at etting clicks More specifically content that plays on OUR EMOTIONS USUALLY FEAR ANGER OUTRAGE emotions usually fear anger outrage Pinker s book Enlightenment Now talked about this trend And then things like this can happen where someone ood at making clicks comes alongAll told during this period Trump received 3 billion worth of free media coverageAnd thisIn just six days the New York Times ran as many cover stories about Hillary Clinton s emails as they did about all the policy issues combined in the 69 days leading up to the election Cable and the networks as they had for decades followed the Times s leadI think clicks are the wrong metric And optimizing for that metric has led our media industry astray You combine that with a publishing industry that is cutting costs and thus not innovating as well as having to cut uality checks and it explains a bit why the media is now so polarized and not as trusted as the newspaper of record should be And it s not just clicks social media engagement is not the right metric either In published rankings of what news sources people found most engaging none of the four companies that were featured in this book appeared at the top The metrics company which measured news outlets by likes comments reactions and shares ranked Fox News in first place in April 2018 with than 30 million engagements London s Daily Mail rose to fourth from seventh and a site called Daily Wire which specialized in conservative news climbed to eighth with 14 million engagementsSide note on Vice I must have not been in the target audience for them and while I know I have occasionally read things on their website I was wholly ignorant of their story or the fact that they had and have a big video arm on YouTube and HBO I don t think I ve ever seen any of their videos I Expos G Om Trique Du Calcul Diff Rentiel Et Int Gral guess I was never counter culture but I waslad to learn their storySide note the author Jill Abramson was accused of lifting some of her passages from magazine articles about ViceBuzzfeedetc and not crediting the original source It looks like this is true for a few paragraphs at least but the overall narrative constructed is not plagiarized so I don t think this is a big deal at all in whether or not to read or trust this boo.
