What now for news? Relationships

Jeff Jarvis BuzzMachine - ma, 14/04/2014 - 15:12

Here are links to the next parts of an essay I’ve been working on about new relationships, new forms, and new business models for news. These links are the last two bits of the section on relationships:

Part IV: Engagement, collaboration, and membership
Part V: Organizer, advocate, educator

The earlier sections:

Part I: No mas mass media
Part II: Content vs. service
Part III: Ecosystems and networks

The entire essay will try to answer the question I often hear in one form or another: “Now that your damned internet has ruined news, what now?” I don’t pretend to make predictions, only to explore opportunities. It’s on Medium. Now I have to get to work on the next piece, about new forms.

A Mirror Image.  Media and Academia

European Journalism Observatorium - do, 10/04/2014 - 10:03

Every academic should want their work to be noticed, not by experts in the field, but by the wider public. This is especially true for an area of study that focuses on publicity and the dissemination of information: media studies.

The fact that the practice of journalism is so separate from theory or the empiricism of scientific work is partly due to journalists’ perception of their role. Journalists usually don’t like if when their work is critically questioned, when their technical or professional abilities (or inabilities) are put to the test and compared to “best practices.” Journalistic work to a certain extent can’t be systematized, because journalists are craftsmen, but somehow always artists, too. Creativity cannot be measured precisely or claimed; and it can’t be standardized or certified following an industrial creation logic. In this business, the norm is not serial production of an identical product, but a unique version of something.

Publishers, on the other hand, remain suspicious of media studies because they suspect the scientific research will inevitably call for more resources for newsrooms, and hinder their entrepreneurial freedom. It is worth remembering that most media, especially in the private sector, are a business that has to make money for its owners.

Despite these reservations from within the industry media research is helpful, because it relativizes anecdotic critical value through systematic observation.
The media also should, in democratic states, play a role in the political education of citizens – thus ideally creating a “public” good in the form of information, equally available to all. This creates transparency and helps to keep the discourse fit for democracy. It is wise to ensure there is a system that allows us to critically question whether the media live up to this responsibility.

Media science should never be confused with media work; the scientist analyzes, chooses, and puts in order what the media is supplying – under the best possible consideration of the specific circumstances. The subjects of research are the journalist and the medium – and a researcher has to remain impartial to be taken seriously.

Only very few media outlets independently cover the media sector critically, from an internal and external perspective. The Neue Zürcher Zeitung is one. It does so because it is convinced that a clear examination of the work of the media, without euphemisms and free of vested interests,  is a basic element of value-based quality journalism.

IFJ Appeals for Release of Somali Journalist Jailed in Ethiopia

IFJ.org - IFJ Global - di, 11/03/2014 - 16:50
The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has stated that the guilty verdict and prison sentence given to veteran Somali journalist, Mohamed Aweys Mudey, is unacceptable and appealed to Ethiopian authorities to quash his sentence and release him with immediate effect. According to IFJ affiliate, the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), Mudey has been sentenced to 27 years in prison under Ethiopia's Anti-terror law. Ethiopian prosecutors reportedly accused him of having information on Al-Shabaab operations in Ethiopia and charged him for participating in terror activities.   The NUSOJ says he did not have a lawyer or family member with him during his trial, while at least three people detained with him at Ethiopia's Crimes Investigations Sector (CIS), saw him being badly tortured and having difficulties with walking.

Conflict Oekraïne is ook mediaconflict

De Wereld Morgen - di, 11/03/2014 - 16:00
Het busstation van Simferopol, hoofdstad van de Krim in september 2013 (foto creative commons/callflier001). Westerse media veroordelen de vooringenomenheid van pro-Russische media en omgekeerd. Het complete gebrek aan empathie (niet te verwarren met sympathie) in de media voor het standpunt van 'de anderen' maakt vreedzame oplossingen zoveel moeilijker. Media geven hun gekleurde versie

Recent werd de Engelstalige Russische overheidszender Russia Today (en het Spaanstalige Rusia Hoy) in de westerse media bekritiseerd voor zijn eenzijdige en selectieve berichtgeving over het conflict in Oekraïne.
