    “Hosted by The Washington Post’s Hannah Jewell and produced by Grace Raver, the videos will be featured every Tuesday leading up to Election Day. Today’s video features original interviews with Parkland students as Jewell explores the issue of gun control.”

    “Behind every report, every feature, every news item, inevitably lies a worldview rooted in a whole range of assumptions: ontological (what’s real?), epistemological (what’s true?), methodological (how do we find out?), and moral (why does it matter?). There is, in short, no such thing as ‘no point of view’.”

    “It plans to move the AMP Project to a ‘new governance model,’ which is to say that decisions about the code will be made by a committee that includes non-Googlers. Until now, final decisions about AMP’s code have been made by Malte Ubl, the tech lead for the AMP Project at Google.”

    “I’ve watched how they use Twitter’s technology. Twitter’s superpower is conversation; it’s carrying the chatter. So traditionally, journalists write a few characters and tweet a link to their article and that’s it. But ProPublica threads the key parts of an article, so you end up with a thread that’s 10 tweets long. We asked them why they do that and they said, ‘We’re going to meet people where they are. They’re coming to a service that is focused on brevity, so we need to translate our stories into that format.'”

    “Facebook’s Ad Archive, launched in June, lets people search for ads related to politics or issues of national importance, such as education or immigration. When news outlets run ads on Facebook to promote stories involving elected officials, candidates for public office, or important national issues, we include them in the archive. We believe transparency across all ads is important, but we also know that news is different from other types of political and issue ads, which is why the archive displays them in different sections.” CS

    “So, starting from the eight of pentacles, which is inverted. You know, I don’t think the token will stay at the same price as the ICO. I think it’s gonna trade lower than the ICO. They will be able to make some kind of merger or infusion with another entity, but the publicity around it is not gonna go so well. And It looks like there are some people who are considerably attached to the project who won’t be around for long; people who’ve been in the project for a long time will be leaving. Some of them might come back again at this merging stage. Let me just pull a couple of other cards…oh my goodness. Well. The launch is not gonna be that successful. You know, it’s not a shining time for any crypto really, so I don’t think this will go well. That’s all I can say.”

    “We’ve learned that when showing the best Tweets first, people find Twitter more relevant and useful. However, we’ve heard feedback from people who at times prefer to see the most recent Tweets…So, we’re working on providing you with an easily accessible way to switch between a timeline of Tweets that are most relevant for you and a timeline of the latest Tweets. You’ll see us test this in the coming weeks.”

    “That business journalists are still defending their role in a meltdown that happened ten years ago speaks to how deep the criticism cut and how raw the debate still is. I was editor of Barrons.com before the crisis and didn’t see it coming, either.”
    Columbia Journalism Review / Howard R. Gold / Sep 18
    “On the side of Getty, the company has for years been trying out different ideas to generate revenues from its vast image catalog. Many of these haven’t really panned out — as evidenced by the fact that the Getty family picked up an asset for $3 billion from an owner that had paid $3.3 billion for it — but the sheer numbers associated with the business — over 300 million images, 200 million digitised — also indicate that there is an inherent value as well.”
    TechCrunch / Ingrid Lunden / Sep 18
    “The tone of the publication will be determined by the editors and writers hired to run the new site, Mr. Goldberg said, adding that the relaunched Gawker will feature ‘significant original reporting.'”
    Wall Street Journal / Benjamin Mullin / Sep 18
