  • NPR One app potential is huge

    Public radio and podcasts have taken on an increasing role in my life. I listen while running, cleaning, cooking, driving long distances or taking public transportation, mostly times when I can afford to multitask, but can’t be looking at video or don’t want the added work of reading text.

    I downloaded the NPR One app this week and listened to it twice during long morning jogs, and while I was riding public transportation and hanging out in airports. I’ll stop short of calling it a game-changer. But it’s clear that this app, or one like it, has the potential to become a content platform for news and culture audio, the way Amazon is for shopping or Netflix is for movies.

  • Join 3-time Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter for a master class

    In February, David Barstow came to Poynter for an event featuring Pulitzer winners from the year before. Each spoke about their work and the impact that work had.

    Barstow, a reporter with The New York Times, spoke about his Pulitzer-winning piece on Wal-Mart corruption in both Mexico and the U.S. During that talk and in an interview after, Barstow talked about trail magic.

    It’s a term that comes from hiking the Appalachian Trail, he said, when you run out of supplies or get lost and someone comes along with the thing that you need. “And I kind of think that same philosophy applies to journalism.”

  • Russian ‘law on bloggers’ takes effect today

    Hello there. Sorry this isn’t Beaujon. Here are 10 or so media stories. Happy Friday!

    1. Russian blogger law goes into effect: It could crack down on free expression, Alec Luhn explains: “Popularly known as the ‘law on bloggers,’ the legislation requires users of any website whose posts are read by more than 3,000 people each day to publish under their real name and register with the authorities if requested.” (The Guardian) | “Registered bloggers have to disclose their true identity, avoid hate speech, ‘extremist calls’ and even obscene language.” (Gigaom) | The law also states that “social networks must maintain six months of data on its users.” (BBC News)
    2. More on David Frum non-faked photo fakery saga: Photo fakery surely occurs in places like Gaza, James Fallows writes.
