    “She wrote a fabulous piece that did incredibly well and I think there’s no way on earth that (a) she would have submitted or (b) it would have run, before we started this stuff. It got more than double the usual number of pageviews for an opinion piece.”

    “The cure lies within us, if we have the will and the imagination to develop it”
    “Because journalism is not The New York Times, or BuzzFeed, or the Miami Herald. When you strip everything down to its essential function, journalism is a system for collecting, synthesizing, verifying and distributing news. Everything else is just form.”

    “Infowars had used PayPal to process transactions for its on-site store; the site will have ten days to find new payment processors.”
    Wall Street Journal / Benjamin Mullin
    “Mic executives believe that, within the next year, the company will have to sell or consider other options to raise capital or cut expenses, the people said.”
    White House Watch / Dan Froomkin
    “Stories about Trump’s tweets shouldn’t be simply about the fact that he tweeted them. And they shouldn’t just assume that readers can understand what’s so wrong about them. Journalism requires context, here more than ever.”
    Poynter / Daniel Funke
    “What we hope to do in the coming days and weeks is target voters and use Facebook’s own technology and use paid promotion to reach voters.”
    The New Yorker / Mark O'Connell
    “Lanier has coined a term for this process: he calls it bummer, which stands for ‘Behaviours of Users Modified, and Made into an Empire for Rent.'”

It took two engineers and designer spending most of their time over 10 weeks to get the mobile player to the point that Quartz felt comfortable selling it into clients.”
    Motherboard / Joseph Cox and Jason Koebler
    “Leaked internal documents show that Facebook’s content moderators are explicitly instructed to allow ‘white separatism’ and ‘white nationalism’ on the platform, but note that ‘white supremacy’ is banned. Facebook makes this distinction because it argues in those documents that white nationalism ‘doesn’t seem to be always associated with racism (at least not explicitly.)'”
