Everyone has a bone to pick with existing social networks. There are plenty of legitimate concerns, but the fact is that social media has also been incredibly valuable for many people. If your business depends in large part on connecting with others or engaging with an audience, it’s hard to simpl...
“We now understand that we should never have published this series as reported.”
I’ve noticed that @AeonMag does this. It would definitely be cool to see other outlets practicing this too.
It looks like On The Media hasn’t created a Breaking News Consumer’s Handbook for racism, but we desperately need it. (In fact, we really need it for daily news not just breaking…)

Integral Ad Science, Comscore and Oracle are leaking the top secret classifications they use to block ad revenues from the news.
The New York Times issued a big mea culpa, and returned a Peabody award and a citation as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize after retracting the core of its hit podcast series Caliphate.
I do remember taking their reporting with a massive grain of salt as there were caveats in the story which indicated there was some sketchiness on the part of their subject and whether or not he was there or not or did the things he claimed.

Breaking news reporting often gets essential facts wrong. In fact, the rampant misreporting can be so common as to be predictable. And so, On the Media has developed formulas (with the help of experts) for how to spot spotty coverage. Rather than counting on news outlets to get it right, we're looking at the other end. We have some tips for how to sort good information from bad -- whether the breaking news is about a tragic mass shooting or a stock market crash, an epidemic or a rash of election polls. Below is our collection of Breaking News Consumer's Handbooks, and it's growing all the time. Each one comes with a printable PDF that you can tape to your wall the next time you encounter a big news event.

If you’re aware of something I’m missing that isn’t terrifically duplicative, do let me know. I still wish it were easier to follow specific individual writers across platforms and outlets.
For the last four years, the Times reporter has been the human incarnation of a nation riveted, like it or not, by Donald Trump.
#BREAKING Polls are set to open in 48 hours across the US as the authoritarian regime of Donald Trump attempts to consolidate its hold over the troubled, oil-rich, nuclear-armed, north American nation. Analysts are sceptical the election will end months of political violence.
He had us in a self-serving tailspin from the start. But the best journalism was invaluable.
