Jay Rosen

I teach journalism at NYU, write the blog PressThink, direct NewAssignment.Net, and try to grok new media. I don't do lifecasting but mindcasting on Twitter.
Twitter
"...'Leaving it there' amounts to malpractice, even though it still feels like normal practice and the safer choice." http://pressthink.org/2014...
When quoting both sides and leaving it there is the riskier call. http://pressthink.org/2014... I just posted this at my site, PressThink.
By Clay Shirky. Last call: the end of the printed newspaper https://t.co/EzqS80kMV2
Yes. They're coming back to me now. Some lines in a short story. "Who's in charge here?" "In charge? The situation is in charge." #Ferguson
"Good editors are valuable. They are also rare. If we simply kept the good ones and dismissed the bad ones..." http://gawker.com/against...
RT @SchumacherMatos: @jayrosen_nyu First NPR non-response to @democracynow was separate matter. I focused on story itself and talking with reporter.
My take: David Gregory's "fatal lack of awareness" made it impossible for him to succeed as host of Meet the Press. http://crooksandliars.com/cltv...
"When we talk about solutions journalism or constructive journalism, it should not focus on 'positive news.'" http://www.journalism.co.uk/news...
Stonewall the outsiders, then cave when your ombudsman comes calling. @NPR refuses to admit an obvious error. https://t.co/KDQXTmogZB
RT @NickBovePxP: My Twitter feed is blowing up about #Ferguson. My Facebook wall is filled with nothing but #ALSIceBucketChallenges. What an odd dynamic.
Best piece of writing I have yet read about Ferguson. http://www.newyorker.com/news...
Earlier today I was on CNN's Reliable Sources discussing the decline of the Sunday shows and David Gregory's problems http://reliablesources.blogs.cnn.com/2014...
He should stick to what political consultants say about who's up and who's down. https://t.co/dAYbgACWYm
By me, just now. @NPR refuses to admit an obvious error when criticized for it. https://t.co/KDQXTmogZB
"Au revoir, Silicon Valley," says tech reporter who's moving to France. Some good observations on his bizarre beat. https://medium.com/@obrien...
Here's the clip of my appearance on @CNNReliable today. Topic was David Gregory and the failure of the Sunday shows. http://reliablesources.blogs.cnn.com/2014...
Meet the Press does a farewell highlight reel for David Gregory http://www.mediaite.com/tv... Missing: "why shouldn't you be charged with a crime?"
The full 42-minute report by @vicenews on the Islamic State is now up. https://t.co/TjE9DTOiRn Disturbing but necessary. Highly informative.
The segment on @CNNReliable will air momentarily. @franksesno, @brianstelter and I talk about David Gregory and decline of the Sunday shows.
I'll be on CNN's Reliable Sources at 11 am ET talking about David Gregory and the Sunday shows with @brianstelter and @franksesno. Tune in!
When @Storify says it is auto-saving your draft, sends ten notices to that effect, and then... doesn't. And you lose three hours of work.
I asked the ombudsman to look at @NPR's stonewall-ish refusal to admit to an obvious error: https://t.co/LgpICUboiM I guess he declined.
NPR would not admit to a super obvious mistake in responding to Democracy Now http://www.democracynow.org/2014... but did admit such to @SchumacherMatos.
NPR ombudsman weighs in http://www.npr.org/blogs... on this complaint from The Intercept: https://t.co/nAmh9PxNnt Finds no intention to deceive.
That term — "the media" — has no referent. That's why people use it when they really mean "an op ed I saw" or "a talking head I hate watch."
Reporters trying to cover the renewed chaos in Ferguson faced a new threat on Friday: threats from demonstrators. http://www.politico.com/story...
RT @johnhalton: This should be useful: @ftantenna, an algorithmically-driven Twitter filter from @FT. http://antenna.ft.com/top... https://twitter.com/johnhal...
First time reading the news stories about Rick Perry's indictment, I have no idea what it's really about or what it means. Now trying again.
The ideas expressed by @MarkLeibovich about @chucktodd's challenges as new host of Meet the Press are ace. http://www.politico.com/story...
This sounds like a terrible idea. MT @alexweprin. CNN is holding a town hall Monday at 10 on "Race in America." Studio audience. Don Lemon.
