    Vox’s new Netflix series is really good, but it doesn’t get us any closer to figuring out what news on streaming platforms looks like

    “We have built the world that they told us existed”: Did the rise of young, white “Internet reporting” bolster the alt-right?
    “Nothing has been better for alt-right trolling (whatever that word even means) than establishment journalism.”

    Flush with spectrum-sale dollars, a Pennsylvania PBS station is doubling down on a different kind of local news

    This program made people better at identifying disinformation. (They still weren’t great at knowing what to trust.)
    “Skill for analyzing objective news needs to be developed on its own…it likely needs to be coordinated with the skill for analyzing disinformation-based news.”

    What We’re Reading
    Wired / Nicholas Thompson
    “Facebook knows it is at war, and it wants to teach the populace how to join its side of the fight.”
    The Intercept / Maryam Saleh
    “Over the last four years, journalists, analysts, and local activists from Iraq and Syria have written about ISIS documents, including some that were taken from the countries in which they were found. But Callimachi appears to be the first journalist to obtain and remove a cache of documents this large. She traveled to Iraq when coalition forces launched a battle to retake Mosul from ISIS in late 2016. There, she was on the front lines, rushing into buildings that were cleared of the militants and stuffing documents and hard drives into trash bags she had brought with her. But her story, and her new ‘Caliphate’ podcast, which is based in part on the documents she obtained, have set off a controversy about outsiders taking historically important documents out of a country at war.”
    AdWeek / A.J. Katz
    “To measure local media viewing, Nielsen has developed the DMA [designated market levels], a group of counties that form common local TV markets. There are currently 210 DMAs across the U.S., and by including YouTube TV in Nielsen local ratings using the company’s DTVR [digital in TV ratings], the company is enabling programmers and advertisers across local DMAs to gain a more comprehensive understanding of how audiences are consuming linear TV shows across digital platforms.”
    The Hollywood Reporter / Jeremy Barr
    “It may be just a matter of time before Fox News gets a real challenger from the right. Conservative media giant Sinclair Broadcast Group, which has long quieted speculation about plans to create a rival to Rupert Murdoch’s cable news empire, is making new moves to lay the groundwork for the plan.”
    Columbia Journalism Review / Mary Annette Pember
    “Freedom of the press is a thorny issue in Indian country, where tribes are sovereign entities. According to the Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968, tribal government can’t deny its citizens a free press. However, since tribes own most reservation-based media, tribal leadership controls the purse strings and can therefore control the news content, theoretically. Although some tribes have adopted guarantees for freedom of the press in their constitutions, leaders can choose to ignore such guarantees.”
    Recode / Rani Molla and Peter Kafka
    “The media landscape used to be straightforward: Content companies — studios — made stuff — TV shows and movies — and sold it to pay TV distributors, who sold it to consumers.” Here’s an infographic on the now-tangled web of distributors, content companies, and internet video companies.
    European Journalism Centre / Adam Thomas
    Should we work with Facebook and Google? This is the question : ‘Are the millions of dollars that Google and Facebook have poured into the media industry and journalism worth it? That depends on what you see as the trade-offs that have been made in order to accept the funds, and whether you think the ends justify the means.’ It is a question we discuss a lot at the European Journalism Centre.”
    OpenNews / Rachel Alexander
    Finding data matches “kind of freaked me out, because that meant I had an actual story, and I felt like I was in way over my head. I’m not ProPublica, or even a 2 or 3-person investigative team at a major daily paper. I’m just one person who knew enough about databases to be dangerous. And I was terrified this wasn’t a real story and that I was making it up.”
    The Membership Puzzle Project / Emily Goligoski
    “While there are local differences, there are highly consistent themes in what we’ve learned from supporters across countries and organization type ranging from traditional subscription-based publishers like Outside Magazine to member-driven, born-digital newsrooms like De Correspondent and The Texas Tribune. Over and over, loyalists to specific, carefully selected news brands say they seek out organizations — and want to see more projects — that exemplify these design principles.”
    Digiday / Max Willens
    “Publishers hunting for subscribers like to say they’re delivering an experience worth paying for. Increasingly, that’s starting to mean ‘one that has no mobile ads.'”
