    The Boston Globe continues its regional expansion experiment, with students in a suburb
    “Investigative reporting is great to have, but first we need the basics — and we’re no longer getting them.”
    By Christine Schmidt
    How trans journalists are challenging — and changing — journalism
    “As we become more visible, trans journalists are asking journalism leaders to confront the structural barriers that make it hard for trans people to enter and remain in the industry.”
    By Lewis Raven Wallace
    Open or closed: Who will control the paid-podcast experience, podcasters or tech companies?
    PodPass gets some positive early reviews. Also: a new network for kids’ audio, the CBC translates podcasts to TV, and are daily news shows having any real-world impact?
    By Caroline Crampton
    So Youngstown will have a daily named The Vindicator after all. But it’s a brand surviving, not a newspaper.
    Long after the local newspaper business stops making any sense at all, there’ll be a lot of powerful brand names that will retain value better than what the printing presses pumped out. That’s how we’ll get local news outlets without much local news.
    By Joshua Benton
    Maybe you know that article is satire, but a lot of people can’t tell the difference
    Labeling satire as such may seem to take the sting out of the joke. But it’s also the most effective way we know of to prevent people from taking satirical content as fact — something surprisingly common.

    This reporter came for ER bills (with the help of 1,000-plus patients), and now doctors are listening
    Sarah Kliff has brought her healthcare billing projects from Vox to The New York Times, reporting on the submissions of thousands of readers. And now she’s written for an audience of practitioners and academics.

    Don’t click this: When should news organizations use “nofollow” links?
    Plus, a new free course for online fact-checking taught via workspace app Notion.
    By Laura Hazard Owen
    One potential route to flagging fake news at scale: Linguistic analysis
    It’s not perfect, but legitimate and faked news articles use language differently in ways that can be detected algorithmically: “On average, fake news articles use more expressions that are common in hate speech, as well as words related to sex, death, and anxiety.”
    By Fatemeh Torabi Asr
    Finally, Instagram is getting fact-checked (in a limited way and just in the U.S., for now)
    “The potential to prevent harm is high here, particularly with the widespread existence of health misinformation on the platform.”
    By Laura Hazard Owen
    America’s largest union of journalists is doing a rewrite of its leadership election
    Three decades of age separate the incumbent and his challenger, who present different views of the NewsGuild’s effectiveness organizing new newsrooms.

    BuzzFeed built a tool that recommends content based on how you’re feeling
    First result for “Stressed”: “28 Useful Products For Anyone Who Gets Stressed Out Super Easily”
    ProPublica / Lena V. Groeger
    Here’s how ProPublica’s diversity programs are working
    “Nearly 100 journalists and journalism students have gone through these programs. Recently, we sent around a questionnaire to see where the Data Institute alumni and scholarship recipients are now. Many pointed to their experience with ProPublica as a turning point in their lives and careers.”
    The Fresno Bee / Kate Irby
    Rep. Devin Nunes finally served McClatchy with that “defamation” lawsuit he threatened months ago
    He filed it in…Virginia, where McClatchy publishes no newspapers and a 39-hour, 2,684-mile drive from his district offices in California’s San Joaquin Valley. He’s also suing Twitter, a Republican political strategist, and two anonymous Twitter users.
    The Boston Globe / Deirdre Fernandes
    Ethan Zuckerman and Nate Matias are severing ties with the MIT Media Lab over its Jeffrey Epstein connections
    Ethan: “My logic was simple: the work my group does focuses on social justice and on the inclusion of marginalized individuals and points of view. It’s hard to do that work with a straight face in a place that violated its own values so clearly in working with Epstein and in disguising that relationship.” Nate: “As part of our work, CivilServant does research on protecting women and other vulnerable people online from abuse and harassment. I cannot with integrity do that from a place with the kind of relationship that the Media Lab has had with Epstein. It’s that simple.”
    Kotaku / Jason Schreier
    Game Informer, one of America’s largest-circulation magazines, just laid off almost half its editorial staff
    “The layoffs blindsided staff at Game Informer today. Seven of the popular magazine’s editors announced on Twitter this afternoon that they had been laid off, including one who said he was on vacation. (Per Game Informer’s masthead, the magazine has 19 full-time editorial staff.)”
    The Membership Puzzle Project / Phillip Smith
    How to spend money to make money (a.k.a. how to use paid acquisition to grow your membership)
    “It is clear that the tactics of paid lead acquisition do translate to the world of journalism —people do respond positively to the advertising campaigns, subscribe from social platforms, and stay engaged. And these strategies can be useful even if you have a paywall or patronage model.”
    Bloomberg / Ira Boudway
    The Athletic now has more than a half-million readers, but can it turn a profit?
    “Nearly 1,800 people have signed up for subscriptions to read Jenks’s story, making it one of the top 10 in the site’s history. ‘He wrote the defining piece of the NBA playoffs from Seattle,’ says Hansmann. ‘And Seattle doesn’t even have an NBA team.'”
    WIRED / Arielle Pardes
    Brace for impact: Reddit now lets you livestream, too
    “The network will be tightly curated, with no more than 100 concurrent streams that run for no longer than 30 minutes each…. The weeklong experiment will be entirely moderated by Reddit employees, giving Reddit’s mass of volunteer moderators a break from watching the streams.”
    Times Insider / Lovia Gyarkye
    How The New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project came together
    “The project also includes a multipart audio series with The Daily featuring Ms. Hannah-Jones, a page dedicated to understanding the significance of 1619 in the upcoming issue of The New York Times for Kids, and a partnership with the Pulitzer Center to create a curriculum that will be distributed in schools across the country. The Times has also printed hundreds of thousands of extra copies of the magazine and special section to be distributed for free at libraries, museums and schools.”
    Digiday / Lucinda Southern
    Apple flexes a strong anti-tracking stance
    “Apple intends to treat ad tech vendors, as well as tech giants such as Facebook and Google, like malware if they continue to use cookies for cross-site targeting purposes. It stands to reason those hardest hit will be third-party data providers, DSPs, and in the long term Facebook and Google, which won’t be able to retarget on Apple devices, leading to large holes in their ad businesses, said Root.”
