- I certainly hope not, Mathew!Apr 25, 2012
- Matthew-- Journatic is precisely the opposite of a "content farm," if Demand Media is the definition of one.
Our work, all public as that is the point, would tell you as much.
Not that any journalist ("some") making such a casual pejorative characterization bothered to look (or ask) to see it. They didn't ask Tribune or any of our (many) other media clients-- "can I see what Journatic produces for you?"
To be sure, we've been producing news for media companies for several years. We produce whole newspaper sections for some of them. There's a track record-- a very long one-- and it is all public, if not brashly labeled "Journatic."
We also don't pay "$2-4 per story." An inquiring mind might ask-- "how on earth is that possible," or, maybe more logically, "maybe they are paying $2-4 for the writing of something that isn't a story, so what is it?"
Haven't had a journalist ask that yet, either. Will wait by the phone.Apr 26, 2012
- I'd be interested in hearing more -- and seeing more -- of what Journatic does,. My email is email@example.comApr 26, 2012
- So is the issue about the success or non success of the paper(s) ... Or is it about some writers losing their jobs? I wasn't aware that newspapers were supposed to be job fairs. The Tribune is a business. If this deal works out, more power to them. People want content. The Tribune needs to make money. Let's match up those two goals and see what happens.Apr 28, 2012
