    The Wall Exists: Editorial Balance at WSJ

    08/03/2017

    The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Bureau Chief Jerry Seib tells us that in the era of Donald Trump, the Journal continues to cover news as it always has—fairly and with tough reporting. Seib maintains that the “Wall” between the Journal’s editorial page and its news division still exists. In this wide ranging conversation set against the backdrop of President Trump’s latest twitter storm, Seib says: “The one consistent thing that Donald Trump conveyed and got through to people, both during the campaign and frankly also since he’s taken office, is that he could be the agent of change.” Download transcript here.

    The Root: Unapologetically Black

    06/03/2017

    Danielle Belton is the award winning editor of The Root, the African-American online cultural magazine. In this wide ranging discussion, Belton tells us that The Root “doesn’t believe in respectability politics,” but rather seeks to capture an unvarnished, unapologetic take on “what it means to be black.” The internet democratized the media space for everyone, she says. People who originally had no access to major news outlets now have a place to practice journalism. And, with regard to covering Donald Trump, Belton says “everyone is really sensitive right now because of the nature of this presidency” and that the job for members of the press is to present “the truth” and examine the “dark places and cast light so people can see what’s going on.” Download transcript here.

    Alt-Facts and Journalism That Holds: NPR’s Editorial Director Michael Oreskes

    25/01/2017

    NPR’s top man in charge of news Michael Oreskes joined us for a fascinating discussion about “alternative facts,” covering the Trump presidency, and what it takes to produce solid journalism in a post-truth environment. We also discussed the innovations at NPR and its strategies to engage its audience. "The scarcest resource in journalism right now is attention span," Oreskes says. "We used to live in a world of journalism governed by the laws of physics. Time and space were our key constraints: space in a newspaper, time on the air. The really controlling force in the world right now is how long you can keep your audience, your followers, consuming the journalism you're creating. They have just so many other places to go, so many things pulling on them and so many demands on their time that our goal is to create journalism that holds them.” Download transcript here.

  • Vox Media CEO Jim Bankoff and the Supersonic Digital Media Revolution

    Vox Media CEO Jim Bankoff and the Supersonic Digital Media Revolution

    18/10/2016

    Vox media has been called a “publishing house for the digital age.” As we learned in this fascinating conversation with Vox CEO Jim Bankoff, the company is an even bigger deal than that. With its portfolio of eight “verticals” or branded websites, including the eponymous Vox.com which adroitly “explains the news,” SB Nation which is the fastest-growing sports media brand on the web, and Eater, a go-to resource for Foodies, the Vox Media juggernaut is reaching over 170 million monthly visitors. As he philosophically and practically discussed the craft of high quality storytelling and the harnessing of technology to make the latest from Vox Media accessible, it became obvious to us that in his own right, Bankoff is quite the raconteur. Simply put, as Bob Schieffer does so well, “Jim Bankoff has figured out a lot.” Download transcript here.
