  • Complications and ethics issues in data mining workshop Thursday

    Big Data has become a catchphrase in journalism — searchable databases, and data visualizations add context and credibility to news, but it can also add complications.

    Exploring the complications and ethics issues in data mining is the focus of the 10th annual Poynter Kent State Media Ethics Workshop 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday.

    The Workshop – “Data Minefields?” — brings together Poynter faculty, data journalists, media professionals and “digital do-ers” for a daylong program considering topics such as privacy, data and democracy, and using data to shape news decisions. Poynter’s Vice President of Academic Programs, Kelly McBride, and Ellyn Angelotti Kamke, of Poynter’s social media and law faculty, will facilitate the debates.

    Keynote speaker Robert Hernandez, web journalist and self-described “hack-academic” from USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, will review emerging technology, including Google Glass, and talk about ethics questions related to telling stories on new platforms.… Read more

  • Journalists report threats while covering Scottish referendum

    The Guardian | CPJ

    Some journalists have reported threats while reporting on the Scottish independence referendum, Tara Conlan reports for The Guardian.

    Both people in favor of Scotland becoming independent and of it staying part of the United Kingdom have allegedly made threats to journalists.

    One journalist who blogged about a discussion about Orange Order support march for the Better Together campaign claims that a serious threat has been made about his family from a no supporter and has now reported the incident to police.

    Another reporter who blogged about their intention to vote yes to independence is understood to have been threatened with physical violence and having their “head kicked in”.

    CPJ’s report on threats to journalists in the U.K. in 2013 focused on surveillance and harrassment by the government.… Read more

  • News organizations continue to confuse llamas with alpacas

    The New York Times

    The New York Times added the following correction on Wednesday to a story about about Wisconsin llama races:

    A picture caption on Monday with an article about llama races in Hammond, Wis., misidentified the animals shown running down the street. They are alpacas, not llamas. (While the llamas were the stars of the day, one race was designated just for alpacas, perhaps to make the llamas’ kissing cousins feel included.)

    This isn’t the first time The Times has mistaken alpacas for their larger cousins. Last year, they trotted out a similar correction to an article about llama ownership:

    Because of an editing error, an article last Thursday about keeping llamas as pets referred incorrectly to alpacas. They are bred for their wool; they are not beasts of burden, as are llamas.

Here is a brief look at some of the Comings and Goings from early-summer so far:

 

 

 

Congratulations to CNY-Central reporter KATIE CORRADO, who just headed to Connecticut to become FOXCT's weekend morning anchor/weekday morning reporter. Katie has been with the Syracuse NBC affiliate for two years.
