  • ‘This American Life’ to address retracted segments on air

    This week’s broadcast of “This American Life” will include a note from host Ira Glass addressing an academic article, used in a previous episode of the show, that has come under heavy fire this week.

    The study, which purported to show how individuals could be swayed on the issue of same-sex marriage by talking to gay people, was featured in episode 555 of “This American Life,” “The Incredible Rarity of Changing Your Mind.” The article was also covered by several major news organizations, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post and The Wall Street Journal.

    “I talk about it in a program note in this week’s show, and refer listeners to our website where we tell the full story of the Science article’s retraction,” Glass told Poynter via email. Read more

I am a journalist, but I also am a citizen who supports non-partisan, charitable causes when I feel so moved.

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

    Links shared in Poynter’s internal Slack channel are quite frequently from Medium and almost always about journalism and media (although sometimes not.) So this week, we’re trying something new and gathering them up here. Throughout the week, let me know what you’re reading on Medium and we’ll try to include it next Friday, if we try this again. Here are six things about journalism from Medium this week (with thanks to Ren LaForme and Vidisha Priyanka for helping curate.)

    Lessons on using WhatsApp for publishing — an election experience

    On May 18, Paul Bradshaw wrote about how students at Birmingham City University used WhatsApp for election updates during the U.K.’s recent election.

    Frankly… they nailed it. In the process they learned a lot, so I thought I’d share some of the things that came up throughout the process — as well as the experiences of the person responsible for the Mirror‘s political WhatsApp account in the week leading up to the election.
