I think journalism is more important now than ever. This work is one of integrity, this is a calling that is more important than the bottom line and that there’s a real value for society and people who are dedicated to that exercise in and of itself. There can’t be anything more important. I’m Michael Casey. I’m an adviser to MIT media lab’s Digital Currency Initiative and I’m a graduate of Curtin’s media and journalism school. It was travel that made me realise that I really should try and do what I always wanted to do, which was to write and to do journalism and to shape it in the context of this travel experience. But it really wasn’t until I came to Curtin and succeeded that I felt validated, that I felt that I could do this. I think the essence of journalism is storytelling, and essentially that’s the art form. You’re trying to capture people’s imagination. I really saw the things that I was interested in as being untold stories. Stories that needed to be, that I felt needed to be, told and I wanted to be able to tell that story because they inspired me.I started at the West Australian and then found my way to Indonesia where I was hired by AFX Asia then I moved to New York and ultimately wrote for Dow Jones Newswires and the Wall Street Journal. Eventually ended up as a global economics columnist for the Wall Street Journal. A lot of TV for the BBC, for MSNBC and CNBC, I’ve been an anchor for live TV WSJ Live and also wrote for things like Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy. The most satisfying thing is to be able to write in a form that has inspired people to try to make a difference in the world in ways that I care about so that’s been incredibly rewarding, yes.

this is not a situation where robots are going to be replacing what columnists do the bigger question is how do we deploy machine learning to actually represent us better columnists everyday in journalism we’re doing a lot of processing robotic tasks to make sure that we’re reap report growing news at magnitude the channel in which I accompany a big benefit coming from AI is helping with that process it entitles our writers to deplete more period doing what they do best interviews research and investigation and writing more compelling and inventive material those things cannot be done by AI at Google we believe that AI should benefit society this entails advantageous for the bulletin that beings providing access to and the story manufacture who renders it this report is an unprecedented revelation into a whole compas of newsrooms various regions of the world it tells us what they’re doing with AI right now but it also tells us what they hope to do with it in the future we could use algorithms to help us find news faster and break news faster these days that any reporter or any reader will tell you they’re completely overwhelmed with information AI in engineering can help with this process by discover relevancy in the manufacture neighborhood you’re looking at what can the machines do really well which is analyze data pluck things together find patterns and even do some natural language processing to write stories off the back of data we employ AI to provide users with more personalized events while maintaining the balance of curation to minimize filter illusions ai will help us to get precisely the freedom material to the right person and that might be a consumer scrolling through on their mobile phone or for Reuters it might be a business client who are interested in particular material at particular experiences of the day any new information technologies introduces different kinds of challenges to the news industry and one as complex as AI becomes that even more interesting clearly the report contains ethical questions that need to be addressed things like making sure that our data is not biased or figuring out whether we’re going to disclose the uses of automation to publics I feel that we are going to need to have new abilities in the newsroom of people who understand technology and the programs and understands the moralities of journalism routinely we have Q& A discussions on AI strategies so that editorial has a good understanding of what we’re actually constructing what’s feeding into it and what the outcome is this type of transparency within our party is really fundamental to how we build AI we’re all going to be living in a macrocosm where AI is ever more significant in all sorts of globes and I think it’s really important that we are familiar with both the the powers and opportunities of paper reverberates but too the issues and gambles the more all of us work together the more self-confident I am we’ll discover further how a I can entitle columnists that’s why it’s so important that we continue this research and this dialogue exiting[ Music]

Aly McGuire | BA (Hons) Magazine Journalism & Publishing

Posted in Home Furnishings, Local journalism, Uncategorized on September 6th, 2020

My specify is Aly McGuire. I’ve created amagazine for this project and it’s a fad store exploring the culturaldiversity in fashion at the moment. I was kind of sick of the stigma that’s outthere at the moment and it’s always a negative perspective towards the sharingof different racial modes, so I thought that it would be really cool to stageand create like a photo series. I did the styling and photography myself. It was a lotharder than I meditated because I had to not only take the photographs, do thestyling, do the writing, have the courage got to go and do the interviews but alsotype it up, do the design myself.Go and get onto finished myself, but it was an experienceand I’ve learned so much from it. I think what’s next is doing freelance work. I’d quitelike to work with a team like Accent for example. Maybe send them some submissions, take a dive in the deep end and do something different ..

Pull Focus | Karim El Hakim – Backpack vs. Professional Journalism (1 of 12)

Posted in Home Furnishings, Local journalism, Uncategorized on August 31st, 2020

Thank you so much for meeting us today! We are very excited to have you here for thisinterview, the captain class later and the cinema screening tonight. The first questionI have for you revolves around the concept of knapsack journalism. Mostly it allowsany citizen to pick up a camera and become a journalist because everybody has their ownstory to tell. How has that affected the Arab Revolution and what prompted you and Omarto induce your cinema. We aren’t backpack reporters, we are professionalfilmmakers, and there is a difference. Backpack journalism is really the democratization ofimage making and story instruct. I think it had a very big impact on all of the Arab Springmoments because a great deal of day the mainstream media, instead of covering a narrative in an objectiveway, is usually trying to spin a story in a certain way and I think there was a bitof uncertainty as how to invent it.A lot of the time, especially in the early days ofthe Coups Tunisia, Libya and Egypt most of the report was coming out to peoplethrough YouTube or Twitter when the Internet was working. Of route after the Internet, after the Revolution more and more material is still coming out; there was also variousangles on different contests that happened that was or wasn’t covered by the media mainlynot covered by the media particularly well. So beings on the floor, parties with cellphones, parties with cameras “its what” the real eye on the street is. Whether you wantto call it journalism or merely being an eyewitness to something certainly had a profound effecton people because its truly where you go to find the truth is that immediacy. Findinga clip that was posted on the Internet five minutes ago is better than turning on theTV in many cases.Certainly there were many events that happened that the media completelyignored that had profound impact on the Revolution and the members of the movement of the Revolution becauseit really was happening minute by time. When I was filming I noticed it was probablythe most photographed Revolution in history because you would have 100,000 parties in anygiven area and 30 4 0,000 cameras. Everybody is can walk with their cell phone; ofcourse you have to wonder where does all that material get? I would say probably 80% of itis trash you can’t shape either heads or tails of. Apparently we’ve seen a lot ofclips of protestors being fire or killed filmed from afar or surreptitiously from balconiesand material like that. So that eyewitness, immediacy occasions, that probably aren’t appropriatefor mainstream media have a place through the Internet and through YouTube. It’s veryimportant that people have cameras because they are really our merely weapon against policebrutality, against tear gas, against totalitarian police states and corrupt police states.Obviouslythe media inside Egypt, the government media, is spinning a completely different story thanthe foreign media is and the people on the street are somehow caught in the middle. It’svery important parties continue to film because it’s the only way we can catch them doingbad things to beings. It’s been quite successful. People have been able to rally around particularmedia, particular footage that did come out of these Rebellions as proof of the dictatorshipsand savagery that they were protesting against and that really is particularly well representedin the mainstream bulletin ..

Journalism gone bad at Rolling Stone

>>> WELCOME BACK. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE ROLLING STONE ARTICLE ON RAPE THAT SENT SHOCK WAVES ACROSS THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA BUT IS NOW IN DISPUTE. I Demand YOU TO IMAGINE THAT YOU ARE INTERVIEWING THE VICTIM OF A CRIME AND THAT THE VICTIM DOES NOT WANT YOU TO CONTACT THE CRIMINALS. IMAGINE THAT THE VICTIM IS AFRAID OF RETALIATION. WHAT WOULD YOU DO? IN THIS CASE THE ROLLING STONE REPORTER AND HER EDITORS ALL AGREED NOT TO CONTACT THOSE ALLEGED ATTACKERS. THIS DEFIES A PRETTY BASIC JOURNALISTIC PRINCIPLE, WHEN SOMEONE IS ACCUSED OF WROG DONG, YOU Perform AN EFFORT TO GET THEIR SIDE OF THE STORY. NOW ROLLING STONE REGRETS NOT DOING SO. SO MANY PEOPLE ARE QUESTIONING THAT REPORTING INSTEAD OF QUESTIONING A CULTURE THAT’S PERMITTED JACKIE’S STORY TO HAPPEN IN THE FIRST PLACE.HANNA ROSEN QUESTIONED THE REPORTER ABOUT THIS BEFORE IT BECAME NATIONAL NEWS AND SHE JOINS ME FROM WASHINGTON. WHERE DO YOU COME DOWN ON THIS CRUCIAL DECISION REQUESTING ROLLING STONE MADE NOT TO CONTACT THE ACCUSERS. IT’S A REALLY UNUSUAL DECISION. I Reckon IF YOU’RE GOING TO DO IT, WHICH YOU SHOULDN’T I DON’T Picture, BUT IF YOU’RE GOING TO DO IT, THEN YOU HAVE TO DO TWO THINGS. ONE, BE TOTALLY TRANSPARENT TO YOUR READERS. >> WHICH THEY WERE NOT. >> THEY WERE NOT. NO, HAVE A LINE IN THE STORY WHICH SAYS I MADE THE UNUSUAL DECISION NOT TO CONTACT THE ASSAILANTS BECAUSE IT MADE MY SOURCE ANXIOUS AND THIS IS A SENSITIVE SITUATION. THE SECOND THING TOUGH DO IS CORROBORATE THE STORY WITH OTHER Beginning SO THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE YOU COULD TALK TO. HER FRIENDS SHE TALKED TO THAT Light OR FIND OUT IF THERE WAS A PARTY THAT NIGHT OR CHECK AT THE LIFEGUARD POOL. THERE’S Plenties OF OTHER WORK TOUGH DO IF YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE THAT DECISION. >> LET ME READ PART OF WHAT ROLLING STONE SAID. IN TRYING TO BE SENSITIVE TO THE UNFAIR SHAME AND HUMILIATION MANY WOMEN FEEL AFTER A SEXUAL ASSAULT, WE MADE A JUDGE, THE KIND OF JUDGMENT REPORTERS AND EDITORS MAKE EVERY DAY.IT GOES ON TO SAY THAT WE SHOULD NOT HAVE MADE THIS AGREEMENT WITH JACKIE AND THESE MISTAKES ARE ON ROLLING STONE, NOT ON JACKIE. THAT’S A Story Proclamation THAT WAS REVISED ON SATURDAY NIGHT. THE ORIGINAL STATEMENT WAS PERCEIVED BY SOME TO BE BLAMING THE VICTIM, BLAMING JACKIE. >> I’M SO GLAD THEY MADE A SECOND STATEMENT. I WAS FEELING ABOUT ABOUT THE FIRST ONE. IT Virtually SAID THIS IS JACKIE’S FAULT BUT SHE’S NOT A JOURNALIST. SHAETION SHE’S JUST TELLING HER OWN STORY. IT’S ON US TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE TO TRUST BUT VERIFY. YOU HAVE TO CHECK THE SOURCES. FIGURE OUT WITH THE STORY IS TRUE BECAUSE IF NOT YOU END UP IN A MESS LIKE THE ONE WE’RE IN NOW .>> LET ME PLAY A CLIP FROM MSNBC. IN 9 SABRINA WAS ON CNN ONCE BEFORE AND THERE WERE QUESTIONS RAISED ABOUT HER REPORTING. SHE WAS ON MSNBC’S MELISSA HARRIS PERRY LAST SATURDAY. HERE ARE A COUPLE SOUND BITES FROM THAT SEGMENT. >> I Thoughts THAT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT RAPE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT, WE’VE STARTED BECOMING VERY MIRED IN EUPHEMISM. WE CALL IT SEXUAL MISCONDUCT, Unlawful sexual intercourse, WHAT DOES THAT REALLY MEAN.I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO SHOW THIS IS NOT SOME FORM OF MISCON MISCONDUCT. THIS IS A VIOLENT CRIME AND IT WAS IMPORTANT TO SHINE A SPOTLIGHT ON JUST HOW VIOLENT IT IS. >> BEFORE I SAY ANYTHING ELSE, I HAVE TO THANK YOU, SABRINA, FOR WRITING THIS. I Review YOU’VE DONE AN ACT OF PUBLIC SERVICE. IT IS HARD TO READ AN ARTICLE LIKE THIS AND AVOID THE CONCLUSION THAT WE LIVE IN A CULTURE THAT HATES WOMEN. JUST HATES US. >> THE MEDIA OUTLETS THAT UNCRITICALLY PICKED UP ON THIS STORY I THINK HAVE TO DO SOME INTROSPECTION. On the other hand, ROLLING STONE HAS AN EXCELLENT REPUTATION. MANY IMPORTANT STORIES OVER THE YEARS. DO YOU THINK THIS IS SAMPLE AN EXAMPLE OF ACTIVISM JOURNALIST GONE WRONG AND SHOULD WE LEARN FROM THAT? >> YES. Division OF WHAT WENT WRONG IS BELIEF GETTING IN THE WAY OF FACTS.ABOUT LEAF IN TWO SENSES. BELIEF IN THIS STORY. THIS Legend IS AN AMAZING STORY. IT’S A REALLY IMPORTANT STORY TO BE TOLD IF IT’S TRUE. SO, YOU KNOW, WANTING THE STORY DESPERATELY TO BE TRUE GOT IN THE WAY, AND THEN ALSO ACTIVISM IN THE TRADITIONAL SENSE. I MEAN, THAT’S WHAT WHAT HAPPENED TO SABRINA IS A LITTLE BIT GETTING INTO THE SURVIVOR CULTURE WHICH IS YOU CAN’T QUESTION A VICTIM WHICH I Remember IS TRUE. IT’S IMPORTANT NOT TO QUESTION THE VICTIM IF YOU’RE HER SUPPORT GROUP BECAUSE YOU WANT >> AND WE’VE ACTUALLY MADE PROGRESS IN THAT RESPECT, HAVEN’T WE? AS THE DECADES HAVE PASSED, THE COSBY ACCUSERS, For example, WERE NOT TAKEN AS SERIOUSLY AS THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN.NOW THEY ARE BEING TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY. THAT IS PROGRESS. >> YEAH, WE HAVE A WAYS TO GO. THE COSBY STORY COULDN’T HAVE COME AT A WORST TIME. YOU SEE WHAT IT WAS LIKE IN THE’ 70 s AND’ 80 s. THESE WOMEN WERE SURE NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE THEM. WE ARE Obligating PROGRESS. WHAT YOU DON’T WANT OBVIOUSLY IS.

ahh the newspaper the old-fashioned wide-reaching sheethas been available for three hundred years and somehow still knocking Oh! An iPad Mini all let’s be honest with ourselves for a secondwe have inventions now the radiation us up for more informationabout the world and everything everyone is doing so how is this thing going to competewith this are we about to witness the death thenewspaper? let’s break it down in today’s episodeof Takei’s Take every extend era he makes more badnews about the report. Daily papers around the countryand piercing the junk left and right as newspapers have movedonline ad incomes have virtually dissipated. In2012 newspapers lost sixteen dollars in printads for every one dollar earned in digitalad Oh my! and have you seen the newspaper recently? They’re thin faster than the “hairs-breadth” order Truth of the matter is that realjournalism is not cheap, it requires time and intensity and travel to track down makes and getthe story right if newspapers are going away where we getting ournews? there are locates like BuzzFeed and Gawker.Sometimes it looksmore like photo halls and transcend 10 lists posingas story and then there is Facebook and Twitterbut is this news? These feeds are certainlyup to the minute and can sometimes break news it’s hardto distinguish belief or fabrication from information recollect when everyone concluded JeffGoldblum had died? life, uh acquires a nature. What about citizenjournalists the people who are writing blogs andposting videos about what’s happening in the world around usthis stuff is great but here we run into some of the sameproblems.I wish there was someone who could make sense of all this for me Ohh! astounding I’m delighted to be in now. Journalistand Internet enthusiast Ann Friedman. Welcome Hi George. How are you? I’m excellent. Tell us about yourjournalistic background I’ve been a novelist and journalist for about 10 times and I write a column for ColumbiaJournalism Review answering journalists questions about the future of media What do you think is going tohappen with newspapers? well I don’t think newspapers will live forvery long I do is of the view that the stomach for thenews is is quite strong Absolutely. and all sorts of research saysthat that people are consuming more information than ever are hungry for info than ever.What’s the distinctions between magazine bulletin and digital bulletin? Mostly it’sthe move it’s that you know in the newspaperworld to use a kind to waste the day putting together a story and then someone would revise it in theevening and then it would go to press and then in the following morning and parties would open up and read it over coffee and now things are still being edited inreviewed and in many cases factchecked things are still being reported you knowpeople are still picking up the phone and talking to parties it’s just that it’s all happeningconstantly on sometimes at the hurry of a tweet in 140 personas and sometimes at thespeed of a monthly month long project.What is the newsindustry go to look like in 10 times? I hope I’m not replaced byrobot of some kind I hope I’m still doing this errand I hope so too. I meditate I have a lotmore personality than a robot which is increasingly important you know asconsumers make choices based on who’s presenting them the information so you’re rosy about the futurejournalism I am. And I share that with you we havemore options now more parties participating and gettingdifferent perspectives it’s exciting to me that there are allthese new ways for people to access the story there’s always going to be people whoare misinformed but you know that was also the instance in a previous epoch, peoplebut supermarket tabloids that happened you know. I’mstill getting my New York Times in publication. Well this has been a veryinformative and enlightening discussion and I thinka lot of our viewers will be uhh Following me on Twitter! Following you on Twitter thank you so much for meeting us.Here’smy go: the newspaper manufacture is changing andthat’s inevitable but we still need good journalism andwhen story web sites are busy optimizing for clinks and peddling inexpensive opinions we need tobe more selective about where we get our information and that’s our support. Wait! Before you runout and grip a newspaper this is what you have to do. Subscribe tothe channel: like this video and tell us where youthink journalism is headed in specific comments below. And that’s our make. The longest grip of the newspaper of all time.Until next time.
