Binge-watching #HouseOfCards  this weekend?
 
Last year +The Poynter Institute looked at new-media values in #HouseOfCards:

"You don’t have to send me things before you post."
"Most people write from their phones.”
"The White House is where news goes to die."

Al Tompkins walks us through how Budweiser's Super Bowl commercial sticks to storytelling fundamentals: "how to build tension, how to use the 'rule of threes,' how to find narrow focus and how to build to the big explosion at the end of the piece — the payoff."

Join us tomorrow for a Google Hangout On Air as we talk about "The Race for Truth: Analysis of the Boston Coverage" at www.poynter.org. At noon, Al Tompkins will talk about accuracy, at 1 pm Kenny Irby will talk about dealing with images, and at 2 pm, Kelly McBride will talk about how social media impacted the coverage. They'll be joined by folks like Sean Kelly of WCVB and Erik Martin of reddit to discuss takeaways from last week's events as covered by journalists and social media.

Study “suggests that the value of newspapers, even in their current reduced economic and physical state, can be observed — though perhaps only after their demise.”

Chinese Internet censors are working overtime today to try to block access to excellent reporting by +The New York Times about the prime minister's family enrichment.

We must hope the Internet finds ways around this, no?

The Huffington Post has accumulated more than 70 million comments so far this year, far surpassing the 2011 total of 54 million.

The now-famous video of Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” comments attracted a mind-blowing 171,753 comments on one post.

Moderating this enormous volume of messages is a unique test of whether online conversations as we know them — a dozen people making a few points on a blog post or article — can scale infinitely larger without collapsing into cacophony.

News, trends and how-tos for journalists and the media industry
Introduction
Poynter is a school dedicated to teaching & inspiring journalists & media leaders.

We teach those who manage, edit, produce, program, report, write, blog, photograph and design, whether they belong to news organizations or work as independent entrepreneurs. We teach those who teach, as well as students in middle school, high school and college—the journalists of tomorrow. And we teach members of the public, helping them better understand how journalism is produced and how to tell for themselves whether it’s credible.
