Pack journalism — like we're seeing from Iowa — isn't about stories, news, information. Through ritual, it maintains a community over time.
The crutch phrase "in terms of..." is a sign of crappy writing and lax editing. But in a @carr2n column? I've never seen that before.
"Unlike so many media brands, TMZ doesn’t derive its power from its reputation [but] from its aggression." — @carr2n nytimes.com/2014/09/15/bus…

Unfollowed @TechCrunch. The drop in quality just got too large for me. Too many scheduled tweets for paper-thin stories.

Absurd we don't have a dozen @ProPublica's. The sums required are trivial compared to the public service gain. Eventually this will click.

Chances The @guardian 's membership push could work in combination with View from Nowhere, "he said/she said" journalism: a big round zero.
Obama campaigns: People reached online who gather offline + people met offline reconnected online = potent combo. May work for Guardian too.

Related to Guardian's membership push: Digital makes the cost of a copy zero, pushing up the value of live events, which cannot be copied.
Another way to look at the Guardian's membership push. Membership reverses the "mass" in media. Read @kdoctor on it: niemanlab.org/2014/09/ken-do…
The Guardian wants to become more like a cultural institution: an orchestra or museum. Its new membership program: themediabriefing.com/article/guardi…
