“It’s all going down.” Why journalism is up in flames. | Tina Brown

  • Published on Feb 9, 2019
  • News doesn't sell. That's lethal to journalism - and democracy.
    - Apart from media giants like The New York Times and The Washington Post, nearly every news outlet is laying off journalists or collapsing completely.
    - The reason? No advertiser wants to put their ad next to serious, hard-edged news. Sensational content is favored by algorithms, and that isn't just annoying. It has terrifying consequences.
    - Journalists are the watchdogs of democracy. The more local news outlets and independent media disappear, the more those in power can do as they wish. Unreported scandals will fester and damage citizens. Corruption will go unchecked.
    Tina Brown is an award-winning journalist, editor, author and founder of the Women in the World summits.

    This is just mainstream media bitching that everyone other than far left activists hates them. I for one look forward to watching the dumpster fire of MSM burn to ashes :) Oh and learn to code, you election meddling trash. If there is any justice there WILL be prosecutions of far left activists literally meddling in elections via pushing for censorship of their political opponents.

    Journalism isn't "going down" as you say. It's preparing for a new stage of evolution forced by situation you created.
    Someone independant like Tim Pool with his cell phone and a half way decent connection can out maneuver Don Lemon with high end media equipment, crew to run it, a satellite uplink, and the backing of a multi billion dollar network.
    Welcome to the new age of the citizen journalist... If they are wise enough to grasp and run with it. They can do it without the backing of corporate advertising. Followers can support the journalist themselves. They don't need rich billionaires to come in and save them.
    Also advertisers are more than happy to run next to death and destruction as long as it has CNN or MSNBC attached. They pull out over outrage mobs and defamation pushes. Usually on less corporate sources. It's like they've been led to believe that corporate news is the only news.
    I wonder how they got that idea. The mainstream media is not the only form of press. So no the press isn't in danger or being attacked if Jim Acosta gets a middle finger every now and then. Even that person live streaming a situation or just talking about a subject they've noticed are every bit an important part (possibly even more important) than some pundit, anchor on TV, or corporate blogger.
    You bought in to churnalism, rage bait, and click bait. Now it's burning out. People are more aware of it cause you pushed it too much. They are tuning out. And now you are crying, "Please billionaire sugar daddy save me!"

    Perhaps if journalists and their corporate outlets had actually _done_ their jobs and "policed" _themselves,_ they wouldn't have rendered themselves *obsolete.* I can guarantee you that if CNN decided tomorrow to start actually reporting on the things RU-clip journalists report on, if CNN or MSNBC or _any_ of the MSM outlets (around the world), announced that they were going to be investigating and reporting on the corruption of The Clinton Foundation, the corruption within the "deep state" permanent political class and their attempted coup against the US President and citizens of the US, if they investigated and reported on the corruption that we _know_ took place within the Obama administration, if they reported on the absolute bullshiiit going on with the EU, the economic wars being foisted on sovereign nations around the world, the failure of socialism (again) in nations like Cuba, Venezuela, South Africa, Zimbabwe, etc., if they investigated and reported on the lies, corruption, money fraud and manipulation of data within the UN and the fake "man-made global climate change", the MSM would have more eyes on it than they could handle and the advertisers would be falling all over themselves to shovel money into their news outlets. If they drained _their_ swamp, they'd be a much healthier and prosperous industry. They won't so they're going to die of their own self-generated "pollution". Tina Brown, people like _you_ are the reason financialized "journalism" is failing. You aren't actual journalists - you're nothing but State propagandists and you are _disgusting_ and _corrupt._ Fukk off.

  • Aru Serios

    I think Tina is very myopic on this subject. How about starting with the premise that the majority of the people are egregiously ignorant on so many levels, especially our Democracy, that they can't understand the news and its implications. A case in point is the 35% of the populace that supports Trump, no matter what he says or does. Another case in point is the "person-on-the-street" interviews that Jay Leno and others have done where people don't know the simplest of facts about the US or the world. This is not new. Where have the journalists been for the last 40 years as our educational system has been falling apart? And consider the fact that modern advertising and marketing have turned the majority of the populace into consumers, who care little for thinking, ideas, and important issues. What they care about is consuming, not the news. The problem with journalism runs much deeper than attracting advertisers.

    AND people are determined to get their news for "free" from news aggregating apps on their phones. So Google and Facebook and Apple get ad revenue for news, while the folks who do the legwork of traveling to South Sudan or Yemen, risking capture by ignorant militants, finding and paying someone local and trusted to be an intermediary to get that elusive interview, and getting the video and photographs that convey something essential or even profound... all this they do with less and less of that ad revenue that's been siphoned off to the tech giants.

  • ph0ib0s1

    Very narrow thinking reduced to: "We have to make journalism in a way, that we get more ad revenues."! News should be financed with subscriptions and not with ads. People who are truly interested in balanced news will pay for it, as I do. Ads are propaganda and should be forbidden in all media. Especially because democracy can not exist without honest balanced journalism.
    100 years ago we had similar situation in the USA, called "yellow journalism". All papers were propaganda pushers, until NYT has been taken over by Adolph Ochs and forced to report only validated facts. It was a big financial success, the number of subscriptions rose from 10'000 to several millions. This is how we got this kind of honest integer journalism we used to love and admire.
    The real cause for this malaise is the education of journalists and shift to financing by ads. Education has turned into indoctrination and many of the recently fired "journalists" had a major in gender studies, not journalism. The ads pushers demand more sensational journalism, because they think it will help them to sell more of their stuff. The search algorithms and digital media are magnifying those problems. They are just the symptoms, not the cause.
    20 years ago, when I wonted to know the truth, I bought a paper known for conservative bias and one with progressive bias. Read the story in both and knew, what has been left out. These days you buy the same 2 papers and you find only the same progressive story. Most of the stories are not even facts, just opinions and propaganda pieces.
    After 30 years, I have canceled all my subscriptions. One of them used to be a very conservative paper with focus on politics.
    Today, I follow and support some of the independent journalists, who do not push the progressive propaganda. Unlike the NYT, the WP or BuzzFeed, they are doing very well and expanding in the digital space.

  • Horatio Jones

    It's getting harder and harder to figure out who's doing the objective reporting and who's doing the reporting with a political spin. The left and the right are doing it and there are precious few left who just investigate for the truth.
    It would seem that more people today have little respect for the actual truth and just want their echo chambers to keep confirm what they already want to hear and see. What a disaster that the world has access to the most information in the history of mankind and yet everyone is lying or don't want to hear the truth.
    The world needs a new kind of journalism that is unhindered by political or financial interests. That arrangement did exist in the west for a short time but it got lost when the big networks became the lapdogs of the rich and powerful.

    At the end of the day it's all about eyeballs on content. Most people will gravitate to what reinforces their own beliefs (left or right) regardless of its legitimacy. If you want to do yourself justice, take a step back from them all and do a little digging of your own. Fake news is a term in todays language that describes one of two things. A lie, exaggerated or fabricated story. Or a story that goes against the beliefs and constructs of the viewer/reader. Journalism needs to move closer to a model where any claims must be able to be cross referenced with actual facts and not the "whatever suits our funding demographic, or owner" and be held accountable. News should not be a engineered product used for propaganda. Instead a manipulation free service. While some argue "we have to have a free press" - which is true. Is it working in the peoples favor in it's current form?

    1. Consumers are not algorithms. If you allow consumers to promote the top stories _al la_ Reddit, you will not have lying headlines and clickbait.
    2. Terrible audio in this video. Fire that person and get some real talent for your videos.
    3. Journalism is failing because it lacks transparency and freedom. Journalists are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the megacorporations that invest in their industry. Did you know The Wall Street Journal is the personal property of Prince Al-Waleed of Saudi Arabia and Qatar? His Majesty owns a majority stake in News Corp, which accounts for thousands of Western publications and dozens of television stations in America. Why is this allowed? MONEY. In her book, Sharyl Attkisson explains she was not even allowed to publish negative information on Boeing's burning batteries that almost killed passengers on several occasions because New York executives got a phone call from Boeing telling them to kill her story. CBS complied instantly because Boeing owned their stock. This is complete nonsense.
    4. Journalists should not keep their process secret but should livestream the entire investigative process of contacting witnesses and asking them for information and explaining what their CEO forbids them to pursue and what the CEO orders them to write up and publish. The problem with journalism is not that social media is too fast to correct the record as rumors emerge, but that journalists themselves _don't do any investigation at all._ Most journalists just read the Twitter accounts of their peers in the industry and type up stories on that basis. The truth is nothing to them; CONSENSUS is king. As long as everyone is of the same ""consensus,"" then it is a fact. (Climate science, anyone?) The actual data goes in the trash can. This isn't the case only because it is easier to neglect the work of investigative journalism, but because journalists can actually be FIRED for publishing stories that disagree with the consensus, EVEN IF THOSE STORIES ARE MORE TRUE THAN OTHERS PUBLISHED. You can't fix journalism until you take the news companies private and replace elderly executives with ambitious and energetic truth-tellers.

    I don't think I'm alone when I say that I see most news today as more entertainment than anything else. These news agencies are for profit companies that need to generate revenue for their shareholders, and they're going to run whatever gets eyeballs on the content. To further that, anger and outrage are some of the most powerful human emotions that will get some of the biggest responses from people, which is good for the bottom line. Network TV stations cancel shows that don't have high enough viewer numbers, news companies don't run media that doesn't have high enough view numbers. This puts you in a race to the bottom to get your target demographic frothing at the mouth as fast as possible.
