    In the United States, Facebook is providing (a little) support ($3 million, 3 months, 13 newsrooms) to local news. In Canada, it’s . The Liberal government’s budget proposes $50 million (USD $39 million) over 5 years for the support of local journalism. The two relevant paragraphs from the :

    To ensure trusted, local perspectives as well as accountability in local communities, the Government proposes to provide $50 million over five years, starting in 2018–19, to one or more independent non-governmental organizations that will support local journalism in underserved communities. The organizations will have full responsibility to administer the funds, respecting the independence of the press.

    Further, consistent with the advice laid out in the , over the next year the Government will be exploring new models that enable private giving and philanthropic support for trusted, professional, non-profit journalism and local news. This could include new ways for Canadian newspapers to innovate and be recognized to receive charitable status for not-for profit provision of journalism, reflecting the public interest that they serve.

    But News Media Canada, the trade organization for print and digital media, said the $50 million isn’t enough. . “To put the amount announced in the budget in context, $10 million/year is the cost of running a newsroom in one mid-sized Canadian daily newspaper,” the organization said in a statement. “Having to spread that amount of money over Canada’s 3,700 municipalities will mean that there will not be sufficient funding to support real investment in journalism and local news.”

    Columbia Journalism Review , who are (among other things) worried that the money will go to long-beleaguered national newspaper chain Postmedia (which keeps cutting jobs as it takes on debt), hopeful that it will go to digital news organizations (which are not explicitly mentioned in the budget), and interested in possible tax changes to nonprofit rules that would make it easier for nonprofit news organizations to raise money and accept donations.

    With its Facebook Watch news show, Alabama’s Reckon wants to make a national audience care about local news
    More Facebook Watch news shows are on the way — but is the effort worth it for all local publishers?
    There’s a big difference between the number of people who worry about fake news and who say they’ve actually seen it
    Plus: Facebook looks to hire “news credibility specialists,” and Reuters tries to figure out if highly partisan sites are gaining traction in and outside the U.S. (it looks as if they’re not).
    After years of growth, the use of social media for news is falling across the world
    But messaging apps are picking up the slack, the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism finds in its 2018 Digital News Report.
