Why the “golden age” of newspapers was the exception, not the rule » Nieman Journalism Lab
People have always cared about news. They have just found different modes to gather and consume it. The next decades will look more like the times before the golden age, when newspapers competed with many other methods to gather news.

Why Local Newspaper Websites Are So Terrible
No designer worth their salt is actively seeking to make a frustrating user experience for an online news reader. The free web, however, is a problem for all publishers, and an acute problem for smaller ones—the ones without the design expertise or robust sales teams needed to mitigate some of the online aesthetic shitshow that was created as the bottom fell out of the print classifieds and advertising market.

Publishing trade groups criticize Google over GDPR policy • Ad Age
George Slefo:
<p>Four trade groups representing publishers such as Axel Springer, Bloomberg, Conde Nast, Hearst and the Guardian released a letter Monday addressed to Google CEO Sundar Pichai that sharply criticizes the company's approach to publishers as strict new privacy rules loom in Europe.

The trade associations—Digital Content Next, European Publishers Council, News Media Alliance and the News Media Association—say Google is putting their members in a corner as it implements the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, which takes effect May 25.

Google updated its policy roughly one month ago, telling publishers they will need to share any data they receive from consumers if they intend to use the company's software to sell ads. Google won't disclose exactly how it will use that data and, should any GDPR violations occur, the liability will rest with the publishers, not Google.

Those found in violation under GDPR face fines of roughly $25m, or 4% of global revenue, whichever is greater.

"Your proposal severely falls short on many levels and seems to lay out a framework more concerned with protecting your existing business model in a manner that would undermine the fundamental purposes of the GDPR and the efforts of publishers to comply with the letter and spirit of the law," the groups say in the <a href="">letter</a>.</p>

Not much time left to fix this, is there?
