When Tucker Carlson attacked @TaylorLorenz... "Why didn’t Dean Baquet get on Carlson’s show and lay into him? Why are there no letters from the editor?...No, no, we can’t do that, that’d be considered partisan." https://t.co/YO2X6YUIXv This rant is righteous and I recommend it.

We have a two-party system, and one of the two is anti-democratic. New @latimes column says the GOP is starting to resemble Lebanon’s Hezbollah, a political party with an armed wing. https://t.co/9JEaxdf1Es Number of pages in political journalism's playbook about that: zero.

On the @ReliableSources podcast this week with @brianstelter I tried to explain the difficulties of finding a descriptive language as Fox and the GOP drift not so much further to the right as further from the real. https://t.co/7XBQo1vVZj If you listen let me know what you think.

You may know that the UK has a new right-leaning TV news channel, @GBNEWS. One of the founders describes it not as a clone of Fox, but as an antidote to “the metropolitan mind-set that already dominates so much of the media.” https://t.co/EP8ZBKnlWl To me that was interesting.

"A consensus appears to be emerging among newspaper publishers that crime coverage and its stickiness in a search-engine world need a systemic update." https://t.co/V1Kd7r23k2 Press criticism CAN work. It just takes years. Sometimes decades. Of saying the same thing.

Chair of the UNC Faculty re: @nhannahjones case "I ask that the campus community speak loudly, and with one voice... We need every dean and every department chair on this campus to make a statement, sent it to the [Trustees] and put it on your web sites." https://t.co/QFA663LAlP

Thank you, Frank Bruni: "I don’t miss the stodginess that defined a lot of news writing when I got into the business... It reflected an unnatural emotional remove and an insistence on even-handedness that produced a kind of moral zombie-ism." https://t.co/EPD3CMPj3s

Chuck Todd on whether the Sunday shows should refuse to book election denialists: "You don’t know when somebody you think deserves to be banned is suddenly somebody that you’ve got to deal with. Because you may not like them, but they have the power." https://t.co/FLWgPk58a5

Inbox: Clear uptick in emails addressing me as a "creator" (a term I would never use...) and offering me a good deal on a new system where creators are in charge and they get all kinds of help from the person sending me the email.

“Trump's new chief spokeswoman, Liz Harrington, has been a serial promoter of election lies.” I have a high bar for sharing any items about the Palm Beach Troll. But this qualifies. The Big Lie (that he won) is one of his most democracy-destroying deeds. https://t.co/PRh984Fc3g

I like this passage about @19thnews ("...reporting at the intersection of gender, politics and policy) that was in Politico's Playbook. https://t.co/vVwL9GzlRJ "We do not do horse race stuff." Yet they have been scoring some big interviews lately. Could be a connection there.

In this post, @cwarzel makes the following point: The newsroom leader who quits Twitter, calling it a distraction from real life, has no good sense of the environment into which their organization is dropping a story— or a journalist. https://t.co/t1eE2cHyN4 That is not tenable.

Last year @kdoctor, who had been tracking the business model problem in journalism as a writer and analyst, leapt from the press box to the playing frield by starting a local news site: Lookout Santa Cruz. Now he's back with a progress report. https://t.co/tKfuFGkWWA Recommended.

"We believe that the combination of earned revenue from well-paying readers, community-centric businesses, and events will likely be the only way that thousands of [local] journalists are able to be paid fair salaries." https://t.co/tKfuFGkWWA Recommended update from @kdoctor.

@jayrosen_nyu @TaylorLorenz We in academia must brace for more and more dangerous coordinated terror attacks on our colleagues. As far as I know there is no academy-wide discussion of institutional obligations.

On this week's podcast, @jayrosen_nyu discusses the devolution of Fox News; the difficulty of describing a "shifted political universe" in the United States; and the need for news outlets to be "much more explicitly and aggressively pro-democracy." https://t.co/ghbQO3wBZV

My beliefs are that journalists shouldn’t see politics as a game or treat elections as horse races, and that they should challenge politicians on their claims rather than acting as a dimwitted stenographer, so yes, I am upset @chucktodd never puts my beliefs into action. https://t.co/k1tPDW5S3y

“El periodismo enfrenta dos crisis: una de confianza y otra de sostenibilidad. La membresía responde a ambas”, explican @azirulnick, @emgollie y @jayrosen_nyu en el Manual de @membershippzzle. Revisa el manual completo aquí 👇 https://t.co/c9e5B2HjTJ

This is a really good conversation and an important one. The debate below is around how to think and talk about @FoxNews. What is it? @brianstelter thinks about this directionally and ideologically; describing Fox as moving further right. He is correct, as is @jayrosen_nyu who 1 https://t.co/UgB0RtDqSZ

Brian Stelter
I invited @jayrosen_nyu on this week's RS podcast because he disagreed with my depiction of Fox News in "HOAX." He says Fox isn't moving "further to the right," like I keep saying, it's drifting "further from the real." Here's what he means 👇🏼 https://t.co/zhULwJE3tn

Today the WSJ says its cutting its city report. This is NOT a lament about today's NYC reporters, whose talent, passion and intelligence is every bit the match of past generations. They've done a service even as journalism's financial roof has fallen in. But what's lost #thread

@jayrosen_nyu, a journalism professor at @nyuniversity, is well aware of the changing nature of journalism in the digital age. He discussed disinformation and the news industry with @vivian of @AspenDigital. More here: https://t.co/5UkCYh3hDJ

Something else to object to in this piece: "Maybe the surfeit of local news of yesteryear was the product of an economic accident, a moment that cannot be reclaimed." I've seen variations of this arg over the yrs & it always occurs to me: What if we said the same about democracy? https://t.co/sK9zTqwSiO

Why the media cannot remain neutral in the face of existential threats to democracy, according to @jayrosen_nyu https://t.co/fIwMc3qCfI

We can ask "how do we get people to pay for journalism" or we can ask "how do we cover cost of producing and providing access to useful news and information". These are different problems. I guarantee that solving the latter problem will be better for everyone.

Journalists can and should be pro-voting, pro-truth, pro-democracy. For this week's @onthemedia, I explained to @OTMBrooke what I mean by that. I hope you will listen. (The interview proper starts at 2:00.) https://t.co/fYbAYYvdcd

As fine a description of what it's like to be a journalist as you may ever see, from @lawrence_wright and THE PLAGUE YEAR:

This reporting confirms insights from @Timodc and @AdamSerwer: That above all, Republicans cannot allow an accounting confirming that Trump *did fully intend* to overturn democracy through violence. The GOP's deep implication in mass political violence must not be acknowledged. https://t.co/rpCD9q7PVs
