  • This week on Medium: 6 media stories you may have missed

    In case you had stuff to do other than reading about journalism on Medium all week, here are six pieces you may have missed. Lauren Klinger, Ben Mullin and Katie Hawkins-Gaar helped curate this week.

    Optimism doesn’t sell
    On May 25, CUNY professor and media blogger Jeff Jarvis wrote about his own optimism what your dystopian fears really say about you.

    “The viewers absolutely loved it. I see the potential and I have a lot planned for the future,” Witty said. Read more

  • Watch Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger leave the newsroom on his last day

    Alan Rusbridger, editor-in-chief of The Guardian, finished his tenure in the newspaper’s top editorial job today. On his way out of the newsroom, Guardian staffers observed the time-honored tradition of “banging out,” a custom rooted in English printing shops of yore, according to

    Banging out is an old Fleet Street tradition in which printers would bang metal hammers and rulers against the desks as a long-standing member of staff left for the last time.

    Here’s Rusbridger’s exit:
