Native social media videos are the next evolution in news consumption. Producers who were once battling with channel flicking are now trying to catch your eye online before you click past. And some news outlets like Al Jazeera's AJ+, Buzzfeed, and NowThis have so far enjoyed success with their online models. YouTube has just turned 10 this year but thanks to Facebook's new video strategy and the rising popularity of platforms like Instagram and Snapchat, the audience for videos on social media has grown exponentially and the competition for audience share has grown very fierce. Short form text on screen and rapid fire visuals feature prominently in the native world, but how much does the quest for instant gratification affect the quality of journalism?

Bribes and brown envelopes: Nigeria's 'journalists' - The Listening Post (Feature)
 
09:20
Nigerian journalists are among the worst-paid reporters in Africa, seldom given money to cover travel or other expenses, let alone paid their salaries on time. This has affected the way stories are reported, with some of the country's most pressing events either underreported or ignored altogether. Amid this climate where investigative journalism is severely stifled, corrupt and illicit practices have begun to flourish. Reporters are often seen waiting for cash handouts from politicians and government officials at press conferences, and then rarely questioning them or fact-checking. The Listening Post's Nic Muirhead travelled to Lagos, Nigeria's media capital, to report on "brown-envelope journalism". - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check out our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

TO ALL JOURNALISTS ON THIS PLANET!
 
09:55
A reporter is a type of journalist who researches, writes, and reports on information to present in sources, conduct interviews, engage in research, and make reports. The information-gathering part of a journalist's job is sometimes called reporting, in contrast to the production part of the job such as writing articles. Journalism has developed a variety of ethics and standards. Objectivity and a lack of bias are of primary concern and importance. While various existing codes have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of—truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability—as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public. RECOMMENDED PRESS AND PUBLIC ACTIONS The role of the press in this disclosure effort is critical to its success and the acceptance of the facts by the American public and academic institutions in a non-threatening, but intelligent and interested manner. It usually becomes obvious to anyone studying this field that the American press has played an important role over the last half century in helping spread disinformation and shaping the public’s views on UFO/ET issues. The press has often been an unknowing partner in the distribution of misinformation/disinformation or a knowing partner in the refusal to report real events. It is exceedingly rare that major sightings are reported at the national level. When reports are made, they often done in a condescending, slanted, “add the giggle factor” manner that leaves the audience confused and turned off. Two recent exceptions were the report of the Phoenix Lights story in USA Today by Richard Price and the Boston Globe report on the French COMETA report by Leslie Kean. Both articles were well researched and presented in a balanced, non-judgmental manner. We recommend THE PRESS take the following actions: 1. We recommend that reporters writing on this topic familiarize themselves with the evidence and the implications of this topic. It is felt by many who have studied the UFO/ET issue that it is the most important issue facing the world today. This importance should be conveyed to the readers in a responsible serious manner; 2. We recommend that media organizations assign these issues to senior, well-respected, nationally-recognized journalists and reporters. These issues should no longer be confined to filler articles assigned to junior staff or relegated to entertainment programming; 3. We recommend that the present clichés of reporting on these issues, which maybe intended to “dumb down” the topic by conveying a non-serious and silly tone to the reporting, be eliminated. These include the use of opening statements such as “little green men” and the filming of interviewees with weird camera angles, colored lights, fog generators and the like. All of these techniques, which have been successfully used for decades to “spin” the topic, must be eliminated if the public is to believe the seriousness of your reporting. We recommend THE PUBLIC take the following actions: 1. We recommend that the public open their minds to UFO/ET issues by thoughtfully investigating the issues themselves; 2. We recommend that the public, once recognizing the implications of a disclosure, encourage the press and public officials to research and report responsibly on them and further to take part in a dialogue addressing a dramatically transformed view of humans on this planet and their future place as part of a larger group of intelligent beings; 3. We recommend that the public write the President and ask that he issue an executive order permitting witnesses to safely come forward (see section on Presidential actions) and write their senators and representatives requesting that they sponsor open hearings where these witnesses may testify; 4. We recommend that former government, military or corporate persons with knowledge about this subject and willingness to be witnesses, contact the Disclosure Project to help make their knowledge public in an honorable and patriotic manner. We have protective measures in place, and the more witnesses we have, the stronger the case — and the greater the margin of safety for all concerned; 5. Ultimately, if the people will lead, the leaders will follow. Courage, vision and perseverance are needed to transform this situation, and create a time of openness and trust. If our leaders currently lack this courage and vision, then we must manifest it for them since ultimately the public will help drive the disclosure effort.

Dying for a Story:  Impunity and Violence against Mexican Journalists  pt1
 
01:17:28
Mexico has faced significant threats and violence from organized crime over the last decade. The human toll and tragedy of this violence is directly impacting journalists as well, leading to self-censorship, under-reporting of organized crime, and the corruption and state complicity that comes with it. Journalists have been killed, injured, and threatened as they seek to investigate and report on what is happening, and dozens of media outlets have been forced to close in the last few years. According to Article 19, eleven journalists were killed in 2016 and six so far in 2017 including Javier Valdéz, an internationally recognized journalist from Sinaloa’s RíoDoce, on May 15th. In 2012, the United States supported the legislative framework that established Mexico’s National Mechanism for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders and Journalists. Through USAID, the United States has continued to support the Protection Mechanism and other programs to benefit journalists and defenders in Mexico. Nevertheless, the recent cases demonstrate that these mechanisms have not yet been effective. The Mexican government has expressed concern about the problem and promised justice, but investigations and prosecutions of those responsible have been very few. In the process, freedom of information, freedom of the press, the rule of law, and democratic governance have been weakened. The Wilson Center convened a discussion with experts and courageous Mexican journalists to hear about their work and the difficulties and risks they and their colleagues face. They were joined by Ana Cristina Ruelas, the Director of Article 19’s office for Mexico and Central America, Azam Ahmed, the New York Times' Bureau Chief for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, and Jennifer Clement, the President of PEN International, who presented an overview of attacks and aggressions against journalists in Mexico and the Mexican government’s response to this concerning situation.

Local Journalism is Crucial Now: What's BTS got to do with It? | James Ford | TEDxBeaconStreetSalon
 
12:52
At a time when news media have been called “the enemy of the people” by our country's leadership, journalism at the local level is as vital as ever. An Emmy Award-winning reporter in the nation's largest media market draws on his journalistic experience, which has changed lives and achieved justice, to show why local television news is critical to democracy now, and how it can be even more relevant in the future. Surprisingly, the K-Pop supergroup BTS offers insight into how and why local journalists and the public they serve need to be in greater communication in order to strengthen our democracy. James Ford is a reporter for the PIX11 News at 5 and 6 p.m. James joined WPIX in 2007, serving as the lead live reporter for the PIX11 Morning News, covering breaking news and feature stories. Prior to his position at WPIX, Ford was a reporter for six years at WNYW Channel 5 in New York, where his reporting on Sept. 11 was the subject of the documentary “Dreams Without Sleep,” which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2002. Ford, an Emmy Award-winning reporter, began his television career at WTOC-TV in Savannah, Ga., where he was a reporter and fill-in anchor. He later moved to WFTV, Channel 9 in Orlando, Fla. He was the station’s Space Coast bureau chief, covering news in Brevard County, which is known as Florida’s Space Coast. There, he anchored coverage of 41 space shuttle launches at the Kennedy Space Center. Ford’s next move was to WRTV Channel 6 in Indianapolis, where he anchored the morning news and was a consumer investigative reporter. James is proud to have grown up in an Air Force family who moved to six different states and the U.K. over the course of 25 years. He, his wife and daughter live in Manhattan. Ford is a graduate of Yale University and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. He also studied Arabic at the International Language Institute of Cairo.

Penmanship Episode 37: Richard Guilliatt (May 2017)
 
01:38:13
Episode 37 of Penmanship, a podcast about Australian writing culture hosted by Andrew McMillen. Richard Guilliatt is an author and staff writer at The Weekend Australian Magazine. When it comes to the art of writing magazine feature stories, Richard is among Australia's masters of the form. He has been writing magazine-length articles for more than two decades, and has won a couple of Walkley Awards along the way. His subject matter and profiles are diverse, which he admits is part of the job description when writing for a general interest publication like The Weekend Australian Magazine, where he has been a staff writer since 2006. He has also written two books about vastly different topics, which we explore in some detail in this episode. I have a close relationship with Richard. Soon after we met for the first time at an investigative journalism conference in 2011, I asked if he would be my mentor. During those six years, his advice has been enormously helpful as I learned how to pitch, structure and write magazine features under his guidance. For the first few years, I would send him drafts of my work before filing to my editors, and his feedback always improved my writing. Richard has been one of the most significant influences in my career as a freelance journalist, and I feel incredibly lucky to have had such a generous and wise ally in my corner. We don't discuss his mentorship during this episode, but I think it's important to note here at the beginning. In March, I visited Richard at his home in Sydney, and our conversation touches on how he comes up with ideas for magazine stories while juggling his own interests and his editor's suggestions; how an editor at The Age pushed Richard out of his comfort zone as a young journalist, in order to improve his reporting and writing; how he worked as a freelance writer based in New York City for seven years; how he co-wrote a book about a German warship whose mission was to create panic among the Australian public during World War I; and how he became interested in writing about controversial subjects such as repressed memory, and more recently, the deception of public figures such as cancer hoaxer Belle Gibson. Richard Guilliatt started his journalistic career in 1978 as a cadet reporter on The Truth newspaper, where he excelled at stories about disgraced pop stars and misbehaving headmasters. From 1980-86 he worked at The Australian and The Age newspapers, initially as a news reporter and then as a feature writer and section-editor. In 1986, he moved to New York and freelanced for seven years, writing features for newspapers and magazines including The Sunday Times Magazine, The Independent, New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times. In 1993, he returned to Australia and joined The Sydney Morning Herald as a feature writer, primarily at Good Weekend magazine. Since 2006, he has been a staff writer at The Weekend Australian Magazine. In 2000, he won the Walkley Award for Best Magazine Feature, for a story in Good Weekend about the Stolen Generations debate. In 2004, his profile of David Gulpilil was included in The Best Australian Profiles (Black Inc). In 2012, his feature on concussion in sports won the Walkley Award for Sports Journalism, and he was shortlisted for Scoop Of The Year in the 2015 Walkley Awards for a series of stories in The Australian which exposed the cancer hoaxer Belle Gibson. Richard is the author of Talk Of The Devil (Text, 1996), a book about the ‘repressed memory’ phenomenon.

Mexico: No country for journalists - Listening Post (Feature)
 
08:30
One of the world's most dangerous countries for journalists, the carefully staged murders of reporters in Mexico has became all too common. By some counts Ruben Espinosa became the 11th journalist to be killed this year when he was tortured and shot dead along with four women on August 1. Investigators called it a robbery gone awry but friends, colleagues and press freedom campaigners say that Espinosa's enemies in the state of Veracruz where he did most of his work followed him home. Fearing for his life, Espinosa had fled Veracruz after his work, which focused on student protests, the environment and social movements - led to him receiving threats from local government officials. Caught between drug cartels and widespread corruption among police and government officials, violence against journalists goes largely unpunished. The Listening Post's Will Young explores the no go areas in Mexico and 'red lines' for those trying to report on those stories.

Growth of new story forms
 
01:16:57
New journalistic ventures such as HomicideWatch, PolitiFact, and the ConnectedChina project by Reuters have moved beyond the traditional inverted pyramid news story and have started new journalistic forms. By using "structured journalism," they allow readers to browse and explore news content in ways that weren't possible before the digital age. This panel will explore the promise of structured journalism and how it can be adopted by news organizations around the world.
