Spectator removes Harvey Weinstein quotes from interview | Film | The Guardian
The piece ran with the headline: “Harvey Weinstein: ‘I offered acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so does everyone – they still do’” and the subheading: “The disgraced movie producer reached out to Taki with a ‘world exclusive’ about Rose McGowan and Asia Argento”, making reference to two of the film producer’s accusers.
The magazine stated that Weinstein complained he had been born “poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere”.
“You got lotsa girls, no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood,” the original Spectator piece quoted him as telling Theodoracopulos. “Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone. But I never, ever forced myself on a single woman.”

With Vogue x Air Jordan collab, Anna Wintour goes hypebeast | Glossy
Anna Wintour has swapped her heels for sneakers as Vogue makes a bid for street cred with a new Nike partnership.
The magazine teamed up with Nike to help design and promote two pairs of limited-edition Air Jordan sneakers, which are reimagined versions of the classic Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 3 SE. The exclusive pairs will drop on July 21 and September 7, respectively, and retail for $200 at select stores including Kith, Nordstrom and Hirshleifers. Remaining stock will be released on the Nike Snkrs app.

The collaboration was announced in a video shared on Vogue’s and Air Jordan’s Instagram accounts on Thursday. In the clip, Wintour, who is editing magazine pages, pauses to shoot a basketball into a hoop mounted on her office wall, before revealing a glimpse of the shoes beneath the hem of her dress. The sneakers bear an “AWOK” stamp on the sole, the much coveted approval sign-off from the editrix.

The Washington Post is starting a channel on Amazon-owned Twitch - Digiday
The channel will kick off with two shows. One is live news coverage hosted by video reporter Libby Casey, starting July 16 with a livestream covering President Trump’s meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, with the frequency to be determined by the news cycle. The other is a series starting July 19 called “Playing Games with Politicians” where political reporter David Weigel will interview prominent politicians (Rep. Matt Gaetz, Sen. Corey Booker and Rep. Suzan DelBene are confirmed for the first season) while they play video games.

The Post had been watching Twitch for a while because it has a big, untapped video audience. Per the platform, it has 15 million daily active users and it reportedly has 1 million views at any given time. (Twitch is also owned by Amazon, which happens to share an owner with The Washington Post.) Its decision to launch a channel was validated when it broadcast Mark Zuckerberg’s hearings on Capitol Hill in April and got 380,000 viewers the first day and 1.5 million views in all on its top clip that day. For comparison’s sake, the top channel on Twitch Friday afternoon was Fortnite, with just over 200,000 live views.

Facebook’s retreat from the news has painful for publishers—including Slate.
A year and a half later, however, the flood of Facebook traffic to news publishers has receded dramatically. Google surpassed it as the primary driver of readership to news sites in late 2017, according to the analytics firm, which counts Slate as a client. In May, Facebook lost its place as the top traffic source on mobile devices, according to another traffic analytics firm, Chartbeat, with more people visiting news sites directly than via the social network. And at Slate, which agreed to share its internal data for the first time for this story, traffic from Facebook plummeted a staggering 87 percent, from a January 2017 peak of 28 million to less than 4 million in May 2018. It’s down more than 55 percent in 2018 alone.

The diminished flow of readers from Facebook to news sites is not an accident. Some of it may be due to readers’ fatigue and the gradual normalization of Trump’s presidency. But Facebook has also pulled back from the news business intentionally. In June 2016, it announced a shift in philosophy, prioritizing posts from individual friends and family over those from groups, brand pages, and (to a lesser extent) news outlets. The effects appeared relatively subtle at first, but Facebook acknowledges they likely compounded over time. Then, in January 2018—a time when it was under heavy fire for its role in elections and politics around the world—Facebook announced another major change to how its news feed algorithm chooses what you see when you load up the platform, this time de-emphasizing news publishers in particular and skewing the feed further toward posts from individuals.

Evening Standard to record £10m loss - BBC News
The Evening Standard will post a loss of £10m for the year ending in September 2017, a reversal in fortunes for London's paper that poses a big headache for its owner, Evgeny Lebedev.
The Standard's loss - £9.98m - comes after a recorded profit of £2.2m in the previous year, representing a £12m swing into the red.

The causes of the sharp financial deterioration reflect both long-term, structural changes in the newspaper industry - above all the downward pressure on print display advertising - and specific issues arising in that financial year.

Facebook's Instant Article subscription test shows 'promising' results | Mobile Marketer
Facebook said its tests of subscription sales within news publishers' Instant Articles have so far yielded promising results. People who saw subscription offers from publishers in Instant Articles were 17% more likely to subscribe than those who saw publishers' standard mobile web links, according to a company blog post.
Instant Articles lets publishers host content directly on the social network instead of their own websites. Publishers can run promotions and set the number of free articles that Facebook users see before they reach a subscription paywall.
The Washington Post, Tribune Interactive and Hearst Newspapers participated in an early test of the new service. The social network will expand the test to publishers in Latin America in the coming weeks and will eventually roll out to all publishers.
