Decline of Network News Edition–Paul Waldman

Decline of Network News Edition–Paul Waldman

12 February 2015 | 4:00 pm

“The biggest reason for the decline was the advent and spread of cable television. When there were only three channels, everybody watched the news because there was nothing else on. That included people who cared about the world, and people who were just bored. Once they got cable, the latter group drifted off to other channels, and then cable news gave other options to the first group too, and then finally the Internet came along. Network news is still profitable, and its audiences are larger than any of the cable news channels, but it’s a shadow of its former self.”

Holy Shit, I Interviewed the President–Hank Green

Holy Shit, I Interviewed the President–Hank Green

25 January 2015 | 1:28 am

“I think sub-consciously they understand the really terrifying thing here. Glozell and Bethany and I weren’t put in a chair next to President Obama because we have cultivated an audience. We were put there because we have cultivated legitimacy.”

The young youtube star who interviewed the president after the State of Union address on Youtube talks about his experience, legacy media (what he calls Fox, MSNBC, CNN, etc.) fear, the legitimacy of the new media, and after all, the future of civic engagement of the millennials.

Why the Oscars’ Omission of ‘Selma’ Matters–NYT

Why the Oscars’ Omission of ‘Selma’ Matters–NYT

18 January 2015 | 10:19 pm

“While the snubs may sting and point toward a broader blindness, it’s still more important in the long run that a young female black director received the backing of a Hollywood studio and made an important film. Long after the last blubbering actor has been played off the stage while thanking his or her makeup assistant at the Oscars, we will still have ‘Selma.'”

Plague, the ‘Tinder for information’–The Next Web

Plague, the ‘Tinder for information’–The Next Web

25 December 2014 | 8:17 am

“Plague is all about spreading information virally. You prepare a post – some text, an image, a video or a link – and then publish it. It’s immediately sent to a number of other users (the precise number depends on your ‘infection index’ – more on that below). They receive your post as part of a card stack of posts currently being shared by other users on the network. If they want to share your post on, they swipe up, and it’s spread to more people, if they swipe down they don’t share it and help stop your message from going further.”

Media in spotlight during Ferguson announcement

25 November 2014 | 9:37 pm

” ‘The most significant challenge encountered in this investigation has been the 24-hour news cycle and its insatiable appetite for something, for anything to talk about,’ McCulloch said. ‘Following closely behind with the non-stop rumors on social media.’ ”
