    “Publishers are going to live or die based on their relationship with readers”: How Quartz is rethinking its membership offerings
    “It’s more similar to an Audible.com subscription, where you’re getting access to this huge library of journalism, than it is to a daily news subscription.”
    By Christine Schmidt
    The Los Angeles Times and its union now have a contract and (maybe) everyone is happy
    “With this agreement, I am convinced we have assured the revival of The Times under local ownership.”
    By Christine Schmidt
    ProPublica and The Texas Tribune are teaming up on a full-time, Texas-focused investigative news unit
    “This is not ProPublica Texas. This is a very different entity — a cobranded, co-managed operation that brings together the natural strengths of two different but compatible organizations.”

    The News Revenue Hub is launching a pilot project to help news orgs increase their readers’ loyalty
    You can turn loyal readers into members and subscribers. But first, you have to turn occasional readers into loyal readers.

    Twitter says it wants to solve the “journalists’ careers end because someone digs up an old tweet” problem
    “These are some of the biggest reasons why people don’t tweet. Which is why we actually take this very seriously.”

    In a corner of Brazil, local reporters are switching to government jobs and the state is achieving “media capture”
    A strategy of “capturing the main professionals from the newspapers, in their respective fields of work, and thus reduce the tensions of being disturbed by the journalists every single day.” “Memory is crucial for journalism, and we are losing it.”
    By Joshua Benton
    Focus here, not there: These are the gaps in political misinformation research
    “Persistent debates about what constitutes ‘fake news’ and distinctions between other types of false information are mostly distracting.” Plus: A guide to covering misinformation without burning your news org or your readers, and a discussion of filter bubbles as not-really-a-thing.

    How are paywalled news outlets preparing to serve residents in California’s mega-power shutoffs?
    “If we’re going to have news that is paid for by audiences, we have to talk about the news that should never be behind paywalls.”
    By Christine Schmidt
    Tech platforms are where public life is increasingly constructed, and their motivations are far from neutral
    “Instead of thinking about platform companies as the next generation of newspapers, radio stations, or TV channels, we should see them as entirely new entities that shapeshift constantly. Sometimes they are like cities, newsrooms, post offices, libraries, or utilities — but they are always like advertising firms.”

    From live blogs to time capsules: How CNN is trying to put its breaking news into context
    “We needed a product to push out news faster to a consumer, even if it’s just one to two sentence updates.”

    Newsonomics: The Gannett–GateHouse merger is really happening, but expect to see more than 10% of jobs cut off the top
    The number of employees soon to be cut at the No. 1 U.S. newspaper chain is about the same number as the No. 2 chain has in total. But newsrooms should mostly be spared — for now.

    What We’re Reading
    NBC News / David Ingram and Ben Collins
    Mark Zuckerberg: “People having the power to express themselves at scale is a new kind of force in the world. It is a fifth estate”
    “The event was livestreamed on Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook page, where nearly every comment featured exuberant praise of the Facebook CEO or thanked him for creating the service, many using similar language.”
    Vice / Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai and Jason Koebler
    At The New York Times, a Hesitance to Hyperlink
    “‘I think that a big problem is that there are still editors who like…do not get the online etiquette of linking,’ one employee said. ‘They didn’t come up in a world where it’s both incredibly easy and just considered the right and normal thing to do to credit early and often.'”
    The New York Times Company
    The NYT Cooking app is now on Android
    “Cooking surpassed 250,000 subscriptions in Q2 2019, tripling the number of subscriptions in just one year.” (Without having an app available on roughly half of American phones.)
    TechCrunch / Anthony Ha
    The Information will launch a tech news app that costs $29 per year, much less than its regular $399/year subscription rate
    “The Information describes Ticker as its first consumer app. The assumption is that anyone who’s currently paying the $399 annual fee for an Information subscription needs it for their job — whether they’re an investor, entrepreneur or some other professional in the tech industry. The new app, meanwhile, is designed for anyone who might be interested in keeping up-to-date with the latest tech news.”
    Poynter / Kristen Hare
    How the Charleston Gazette-Mail overcame bankruptcy, layoffs and management changes to double digital subscriptions
    “But the changes that got the Gazette-Mail there were also fairly simple – a tightened paywall, aggressive subscription offers, collaboration across departments, national partnerships and a newsroom that’s starting to embrace its role in saving itself.”
    AndroidForMobile Reports
    Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey on the hard-earned trust behind the Harvey Weinstein investigation
    “This is a case in which journalism stepped in when other systems failed. Megan and I have been staggered by the power that the journalism ended up having, but we feel really strongly that this is also a story about the limits of journalism.”
    Poynter / Rick Edmonds
    Will USA Today in print survive the Gannett-GateHouse merger? Executives insist yes
    “Gannett and USA Today leaders have called a staff meeting for 11:30 a.m. Thursday to dispute the findings of this article and answer questions.”
    PublicMedia.co / Steve Holmes
    Public radio revenue has overtaken public TV revenue for the first time
    “It is easy to see why when you compare the revenue growth rates of public radio stations with public television stations since 2008. Public radio revenue has grown by 45% over the past decade but public television has seen a decline in revenue of -14% over the same time period.”
    Center for Journalism Ethics / Isaac Alter
    How the Knoxville News Sentinel approached covering (or not covering) extremism in its community
    “It felt like it was designed to put it right in our laps and make sure that we would cover it.”
    BuzzFeed News / Craig Silverman
    How a massive Facebook scam siphoned millions of dollars from unsuspecting boomers
    “Taken together, documents, recordings, and other information provide an unprecedented, detailed inside look at how black hat affiliate markers weaponize targeted advertising, fake news articles, and overseas labor to exploit Facebook on a massive scale. Burke’s Facebook account operation eventually became so large that Ads Inc. began selling surplus rented accounts and pages to other marketers for $800 per Facebook login. Meanwhile, the people whose account logins were being sold were paid $15 to $30 a month.”
