    We keep an eye out for the most interesting stories about Labby subjects: digital media, startups, the web, journalism, strategy, and more. Here’s some of what we’ve seen lately.

    “As of mid-January, the site had begun producing a steady stream of new material from two new writers, Lauren Rearick and Emma Sarran Webster. The posts are mostly innocuous service journalism like how to stick to a budget and tips before applying for a credit card.”

    “Our contract is built on principles of equity and diversity. We’ve agreed on annual percentage increases, salary floor increases, severance pay, just cause, paid time off, non-discrimination rules, and a robust commitment to diversity.”

    “Terrestrial photojournalism has well-established laws and ethics and guidelines. Aerial journalism wants to have those — the National Press Photographers Association has developed some — but media photography with drones is a unique animal. “

    “The New York Times has 2.9 million paying digital subscribers globally, and 15 percent of the publisher’s digital news subscribers are from Europe. Digital advertising in Europe also remains an important revenue stream for the publisher. The publisher’s reader-revenue business model means it fiercely guards its readers’ user experience. Rather than bombard readers with consent notices or risk a clunky consent user experience, it decided to drop behavioral advertising entirely.” CS

    “There are fake print editions of The Washington Post being distributed around downtown DC, and we are aware of a website attempting to mimic The Post’s. They are not Post products, and we are looking into this.”
    Twitter / Washington Post PR / Jan 16
    “In a nutshell: we produce news for an upended world (and those who want to improve it). Our mission remains the same: to inform the prevention of and response to humanitarian crises. But we seek to build on our historical audience of decision-makers and practitioners in the humanitarian sector by taking the urgency and importance of these issues to a much wider audience.”

    “Tying the future of journalism to a tech or social media levy shackles the two even closer together, making a already dangerously codependent relationship even less healthy—and potentially compromising journalism in the eyes of readers. It would also let tech off the hook: one of the main justifications for corporate tax is making companies contribute towards the societies they live in, the infrastructure they rely on, and to offset the harms that they cause.”
    Columbia Journalism Review / James Ball / Jan 16
    So how does this square with Digital First Media’s bid for Gannett? “In a sign of at least some shareholder support for Digital First’s bid or a similar deal, Gannett’s stock jumped 21% on the news Monday, which could make it harder for the company to justify turning its back on the offer and plowing ahead with a purchase of Gizmodo. Gannett shares closed Tuesday at $11.40, down 3.6%.”
    The Wall Street Journal / Cara Lombardo, Benjamin Mullin, and Lukas I. Alpert / Jan 16
    “The U.S. site package, listed in October, started bidding at $600 with a buy-it-now option of $1,200…. The hackers in both cases were well-established enough on the forum that the listings appear credible,” an intelligence expert said.
    Axios / Joe Uchill / Jan 16
    “The company originally responded to the controversy by saying Infowars wasn’t currently violating its terms of use. Digiday first reported that Roku added Infowars six months after major platforms, including Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Apple’s app store, removed Jones and his outlet from their services.”
