Anyone who tries to understand the media business should read Buzzfeed's history of TMZ buzzfeed.com/annehelenpeter… Superb work by @annehelen.
What's up with these explainer sites? Just a fad? niemanlab.org/2014/07/the-ne… No, says @kdoctor They reorganize news work. News work needed that.

Right down the middle isn't a political space you can occupy. I thought you knew this. It's a fiction born of your "both sides" pressthink.
"I used to be right down the middle: what happened?" This is an amusing and apt question for an ex-MSMer like Ricks. politico.com/magazine/story…

"A parade of high-profile media talent has entered Bloomberg’s news operation ...and effectively disappeared." cjr.org/the_audit/bloo… Fixed.
BusinessWeek aside, whenever I check in with Bloomberg's pressthink it's always borrowed, never made. Just uses the categories lying around.

This is a smart move by @theinformation. Pick out the most insightful commenters and make it official. theinformation.com/Welcoming-Our-… via @mathewi
I know it's a niche taste, but I love watching CNN train wrecks. Like Chris Cuomo interviewing a Russia Today anchor. newday.blogs.cnn.com/2014/07/23/see…
Give me 140 characters or 3,000 words, I've been saying. @nowthisnews has discovered the same is true in video. digiday.com/publishers/now…
Talent meets problem... a good thing! RT @mjenkins: My next adventure: Joining Storyful's Open Newsroom wp.me/pxHG1-sc
...@jcstearns @jeffjarvis @JimMacMillan To me it's one of the purest categories of blogging. Name types and classify. publicnotebook.wordpress.com/2012/04/20/fou…
"I hesitated to post this since I think it can look unseemly when women get into a strong public disagreement..." gretawire.foxnewsinsider.com/2014/07/22/not…
"We are keenly aware that Twitter is part of an industry that is marked by dramatic imbalances in diversity..." blog.twitter.com/2014/building-…
