    “In 2009, CNN supported Fox News’ right to take part in a White House event during the Obama administration. Earlier this year, Fox News anchor Bret Baier stood up when CNN correspondent Kaitlan Collins was excluded by the Trump White House from an event taking place at the Rose Garden.” CS

    “LinkedIn has been hesitant to reveal specific revenue numbers around its media efforts since it was acquired by Microsoft in 2016, but is doing so now to highlight the growth of its ad business, which can be in part attributed to user engagement.”

    “Two years after Facebook extended its Audience Network ad network to the connected-TV market, Facebook is shutting down the connected-TV side of its ad network and will stop selling ads inside publishers’ OTT apps by January 2019….

    “In the US, Asia, and Europe, Facebook has come under intense scrutiny for its role in the circulation of ‘fake news’. But what happens when viral misinformation is allowed to spread through areas of Africa that are already in the midst of ethnic violence? And what is Facebook doing to ensure its platform is not being used to disseminate lies, spread fear, and foment hatred in Nigeria’s troubled heartland? … Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s minister of communications, spoke at the launch of the initiative in June. ‘In a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country like ours,’ he said, ‘fake news is a time bomb.'”

    “For really big stories such as a major earthquake, we would use threads as sub-channels to keep conversations together and from overlapping. So for instance, we would create the following sub-channels: PLANNING TODAY, WHO’S WHERE, LOGISTICS, BUDGET, PLANNING AHEAD, WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW. We could always create newer sub-channels as needed.”

    “Baseball Prospectus was one of the early examples of the subscription model of [online] publication, and with sites like The Athletic, the rest of the sportswriting world is slowly coming around to our point of view. Quality baseball writing and analysis depends on an environment where consumers pay for their content, just as it always has.”

    “In races for Senate and governor, AP VoteCast correctly projected the winner in 92 percent of races at 5 p.m. In the others, AP VoteCast had two as a tossup, with a projected difference between the candidates of less than one percentage point; three races remain too close to call a week after Election Day; and one incorrect winner was projected.”
