Buffer : Come write these tweets (and do other very cool things)!

Buffer : The Latest from The New York Times is the latest (whoops) to join a flowering lineup of daily pods that already included:

WNYC’s Impeachment: A Daily Podcast, CNN’s The Daily DC: Impeachment Watch, iHeartMedia and BuzzFeed’s Impeachment Today, and more.

Buffer : "Across the wide expanse of this country, the papers still driven in part by a civic mission become fewer and fewer — and the ones that treat news providing as just another business grow in number month after month."

Buffer : Print archives show past impeachments. Where will journalists go to find the history being made today?

Buffer : 52 percent of students believed a video allegedly showing ballot-stuffing in the 2016 Democratic primaries, when it was actually footage from Russia.

Buffer : The nation’s second-largest newspaper company had paid off most of its old debt and still generates positive cashflow. But it might head to bankruptcy anyway so investors can get paid.

Buffer : The New York Times is taking tracking pixels from Facebook and Twitter off its site

Buffer : "Troubling": High school students (like most people) are not good at evaluating misinformation

Buffer : There are a gazillion new impeachment podcasts. Smart strategy or a blind stab at relevance?

Buffer : "What if the chief marketing officer of every major corporation set aside a substantial chunk of their marketing budget and devoted it to high-quality news?"

Buffer : Newsonomics: As McClatchy teeters, a new set of money men enters the news industry spotlight

Buffer : As a fellow for the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute, Madeleine Bair and El Tímpano will launch and test a text message system to reach Spanish-speaking readers:

Buffer : While most respondents said that AI would be beneficial as long as newsrooms stuck to their ethical and editorial policies, they noted that budget cuts as a result of implementing AI could lower the quality of news produced.

Buffer : Paywalls are working at some (inter)national news organizations. But how are they working on the local — or even the hyperlocal — level? Nieman Lab takes a look at how one publication, the Shawnee Mission Post, is thriving two years after launching one…
