Reporters should not be evaluated on how assigned beats benefit advertisers. http://www.mediabistro.com/10000wo... (scroll to my comment)
Says @talkingnewmedia: Time Inc.'s "random and pointless" method for evaluating journalists is no worse than others. http://www.talkingnewmedia.com/2014...
Re: How Should the Quality of a Writer’s Work Be Measured? - http://www.mediabistro.com/10000wo...
"The Time Inc. spreadsheet measures a journalist's value to the company, not the "quality* of her or his work. "Quality of writing" actually appears in its own a column; it's one of eight criteria used in the evaluation. I could imagine similar sheets being used by music publishers to decide which band or singer should be kept or dropped. Artists that produce the highest quality music aren't necessarily the ones that are most valuable to the company. Successful businesses make decisions that produce a (positive) return on their investment. All that said: 1. Advertisers typically want to reach specific audiences. 2. Publishers typically build target audiences by writing about specific topics. 3. Covering those topics benefit relationships with advertisers. Time Inc. should attach "beneficial to advertiser relationship" to a spreadsheet that evaluates beats, not writers. If a writer covers a beat effectively, but it's not a topic that advertisers value, she or he should not be penalized...." - Kevin Sablan
