Progressive Mainstream Media Moving to News Aggregation

Portals and KM

Many progressive newspapers and television outlets have decided to join social media rather than fight it (see for example, Enhancing TV Viewing with Social Media and Interactivity and BBC Pushes Social Media for Its News Staff for Both News Collection and Impact Monitoring ,). Perhaps no industry has been hit harder by the growth of user generated content and news aggregators of all stripes than the mainstream print newspapers.

An update on social reporting, including support from BIG

Social Reporter

I hope to see a blossoming of new structures – including a much more vibrant freelance or indie culture – but the danger is that the major media organisations will cream off the popular market and won’t invest in the rest – as they used to do – leaving niches such as the Economist, or public bodies such as the BBC to dominate in glorious isolation.

The Ethics of Autonomy

Jenny Connected

Terry Pratchett’s programme last night about assisted suicide – Choosing to die – on BBC1 – raises many ethical issues, which were vigorously debated in the follow up BBC Newsnight programme. The BBC programme was controversial and thought provoking as it explored the question of what it means to choose to die, which must be one of the ultimate acts and expressions of autonomy.

Odd names and ordinariness

Neighbourhoods

Among the comments on the BBC article , I liked this one: 'The choice of names suggests a welcome confidence in who we are as Brits; frankly Dickensian, underwhelmed by "progress", oddly charming (or charmingly odd), and rooted in the history of ordinariness.'

Taxes and governmental powers: what are they for?

Neighbourhoods

BBC ). According to Mark Easton on the BBC site today , the UK ‘has long been the most judgmental of the needy in Europe.’ When I dropped out of school and went into ‘the world of work’, as it used to be called, I remember being disturbed by the fact that the education system left me utterly ignorant of what government and local government do, and what taxation is for. It looks like things have got little better, in spite of the introduction of citizenship to the curriculum.

Local monitoring of public services

Neighbourhoods

A BBC programme has exposed appalling maltreatment in a care home and led to arrests. The Care Quality Commission failed in precisely what it is there for; while the BBC went above and beyond the duty of a public service broadcaster, and not for the first time has done the work of another public agency.
