National Public Radio's Digital Makeover
FTA: 'This is an organization that's in transformation into becoming a fully functional news content organization, not just a radio company. As part of that, we've been training our journalists to become multiplatform journalists, not only radio—not that radio is not important to our core.'

Circulation Revenue Only Thing Growing at Newspapers : CJR
This is a good 3-part article (link to part 1). I don't agree with everything Ryan is saying, but it's very much worth discussing.

Jeffrey Rosen vows never to "blog" again
Great article! -- FTA: 'Isn't it amazing -- and extremely revealing -- that even as recently as five years ago, the Jeffrey Rosens and TNRs of the world could do things like this, and routinely did them, without any meaningful response or check of any kind? '

PressThink: "Where's the Business Model for News, People?"
FTA: 'It’s worth going back to the first business model in reportage: the merchants, traders, and other “men of affairs” in early modern Europe who employed letter-writers in cities where the man of affairs did not happen to be located. These letters—the most famous example is the Fugger Letters from the latter 16th century—conveyed much the same news that a trader would want today: prices, conditions for trade and transport, what the local authorities were up to, rumors of war, court news and gossip, natural disasters, and anything the people were seriously buzzed about.'

Xark!: Axioms for 21st Century Media
Good summary, though actually from another article by Dan (that linked to this one): 'Semi-structured information, created in the process of reporting what we traditionally think of as news and stored in ways that make both facts and contexts easy to retrieve, represents my best candidate for a robust new revenue stream that could support quality, sustainable journalism well into the future. My dictum: Donate the stories, sell the data.'

Post Reporter Says It’s Not His Job to Check the Accuracy of People He’s Quoting
FTA: ' Someone tell Media Matters to get over themselves and their overblown ego of righteousness. We reported what Olympia Snowe said. That’s what she said. That’s what Republicans are saying. I really don’t know what you want of us. We are not opinion writers whose job is to play some sorta gotcha game with lawmakers.'

In Baltimore, No One Left to Press the Police
This is a good article, but I think David Simon may misinterpret some of the "new media" spin. Clay Shirky's recent "Thinking The Unthinkable" essay is recommended reading. We're not dancing on the grave of journalism; we're standing at the bedside of newspaper reporting, because...well, it's dying. As Shirky notes, the relationship between journalism and print newspapers is real, but accidental. One is dying, and we need to keep the other. And no, no one knows exactly how that's going to work yet. But the dying is going to happen regardless, so we might as well start trying to figure it out.

January Carnival of Journalism - How to support journalism online financially
FTA: 'Community funded reporting is one angle which I am bias towards and I had to get my peace out. The real answer: we don't know. I think there will be lots of splintering and every news organization will have to figure this question out for themselves. There are no more cookie cutter business models.'
