Why Broadcast Journalism Is Flirting With Jon Stewart. theatlantic.com/politics/archi… by @conor64 is on the mark. (Hat tip, @greenfield64)
Don't say "brand journalism." It's not. contently.com/strategist/201… Not journalism, that is. But it can still be good stuff. And popular.
An admiring feature about the rise of @Sulliview, the New York Times kick-ass public editor. salon.com/2014/10/13/she… (I too am an admirer.)
Ebola fear must be a ratings winner. CNN going full poop ship.
Packer and Snowden could have a good argument about trade-offs, but it wouldn't be purist vs. realist. Just different views clashing. 4/4
See the end of George Packer's review of 'Citizen Four.' Snowden = too pure to reckon with necessary trade-offs. newyorker.com/magazine/2014/… 3/4
Among the key terms in this competition is "purist." By describing activists as purists journalists position themselves as our realists. 2/4
Just as journalists complete with academics for cultural influence (and vice versa) they compete with activists for political influence. 1/4
In case you missed this bit of personal news Friday, I am no longer part of First Look Media. pressthink.org/2014/10/first-…

Sunday morning. Ideal time (if you missed it) for my interview with Chuck Todd on how the Sunday shows lost the plot. pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t…
"...Each user sees what is most relevant to them. A thousand press inquiries end in that one reply." ello.co/jayrosen/post/…
In my Q & A with him, I asked Chuck Todd if he would include himself in the political class. pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t… He said he would not.

“Talk to the critics…” The Chuck Todd plan to restore trust in Meet the Press. Here's my interview with him: pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t…
8./ "Priebus is the head of the GOP," Chuck Todd told me. That's why he has him on. pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t… I did not find this persuasive.
7./ Chuck Todd. "An amazing number of folks simply are afraid to go out on the Sunday shows." pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t… Really? Weird.
6./ Todd: "Pressure from cable when cable went daily with political discussions pushed folks in charge of Sunday shows to emulate cable."
5./ "Iraq started eroding trust, then the recession nearly finished the job." Chuck Todd on DC press losing its way. pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t…
4/ "He realizes the Sunday shows have failed. He knows they have to change." He wasn't ready to criticize David Gregory but it was implied.
3./ I asked Chuck Todd if he considered himself part of the political class. He said no. "I wouldn’t want to be classified in that group."
2./ @chucktodd did CNN, Daily Beast. But any new show host would. He also did Reddit, Breitbart and now Pressthink. pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t…
1./ A series of tweets about my interview with @chucktodd, which I posted tonight. pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t… First, thanks to him for doing it!
Just posted at my blog: The Chuck Todd plan to restore trust in 'Meet the Press.' I interviewed him. The Q & A: pressthink.org/2014/10/talk-t…
