As a public service, I am rounding up some recent reports and commentary about journalism and history.
Here is a new report from our friends at Harvard’s Nieman Foundation, asking:
Where are the women in the executive ranks of the news media?
Here’s the latest episode of NPR’s “On the Media.” This week’s show looks at the decline in “beat reporting.” Any thoughts from my JO310 alumni?
Here’s the latest episode of CNN’s “Reliable Sources” — much improved since Brian Stelter replaced Howie Kurtz. So, should news organizations censor ISIL’s propaganda videos? I say, yes.
And from the NYTimes. . .
—Here is B.U. Prof. David Carr on TMZ’s sacking of the NFL.
—Here is a confusing story about NPR doing “live” shows. (Isn’t all of NPR live?)
—Here is a story about the sale of Digital First Media. Want to buy a newspaper? (I don’t mean one copy, I mean a whole paper!)
—Here is an update on the Hachette-Amazon brawl. I am still not sure which side to join in this one.
