    Longform may get all the attention these days, but — the style, shopping, and beauty site that acquired when it — is seeing a sweet spot in the middle. The site announced Tuesday that it has , formerly the host of the podcast , as its new reports editor. In the role, she’ll be editing posts that fall between 1,000 and 1,500 words.

    The reports editor title isn’t an anomaly at Vox Media; other Vox brands, like , have people in the same role. The position is a first for Racked, however, and , the site’s editor-in-chief, said it was necessitated by the fact that Racked has delved into more original reporting. The site hired , formerly the online features editor at Teen Vogue, as its features editor last year. “Over the year, we’ve seen the impact of having an editor of her caliber on our brand and on our traffic. It led us to the point where we really just needed someone to do this kind of text editing” for shorter stories. Rubin, as features editor, will now focus on stories of more than 2,000 words, while Haggerty picks up the mid-length material — Q&As, repeating features like cleaning column, book and TV reviews, and art and museum coverage.

    All the editors out there will be gratified if not surprised to hear that, yes, good editing does lead to higher traffic, at least in Racked’s case. “We want to be telling a story,” Price said, “and in the fashion/beauty space, not a lot of people are doing that work. Voice is incredibly important for us, and the editor [plays a role] there as well, making sure that everything we’re putting up is interesting and compelling.” , about teen retailer , “did amazingly well” because the brand “came out of nowhere, and is everywhere now, and hadn’t been reported on.” Stories about brands like this, that are “beloved with a certain subset of shoppers and we’re just digging in a little bit more,” pay off in clicks.

    Welcome to GDPR: Here are the data privacy notices publishers are showing their Europe-based readers
    We’re seeing what publishers have decided to implement on their websites as of May 25 — whether they’ve decided to block European Union and European Economic Area-based traffic outright, set up buckets of consent for readers to click through, or done something simpler (or nothing new at all).
    What is it that journalism studies is studying these days? A lot about newsrooms, less about everybody else in the news ecosystem
    Also, has the “fake news” moment already passed for academics?
    Is your fake news about immigrants or politicians? It all depends on where you live
    Plus: Facebook is accepting proposals for fake news research, and fake news was growing as a topic of media discussion even before the U.S. presidential election.
