The nightly U.S. current affairs TV show ABC News Nightline [ http://nightline.tumblr.com ], once anchored by venerable journalist Ted Koppel, utterly ignored the Guardian newspaper’s revelations of NSA spying on U.S. citizens last week. Instead, they ran gossip, fluff and pop culture stories.Most egregiously, they had a special edition show last Thursday, June 6,  about superheroes and the upcoming Superman movie, Man of Steel, the same night that the Guardian broke another big story that refuted the NSA’s public claims about its capabilities — which also happened to be the anniversary of D-Day.Worse, Nightline continued to hype the superhero story through Saturday.Shameful.

My #ONA13 session pitch: Do Journalists Dream of Electric Sheep?

ona13suggestionbox:

Description
From open journalism and distributed pro-am collaboration to realtime crisis mapping, ambient sensing and distribution, wearable computing, predictive journalism, news AI (artificial intelligence), big data and beyond, this session examines emergent technologies’ ground-level disruptive impact on practical newsgathering, how they are being used, and what lies ahead.

Participants will leave with an understanding of seismic shifts to come and critical making for a practical, strategic framework to build the sustainable news services of the future.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED:

What disruptive change and technologies will shape news in the near to medium term?

How will change affect collection, production and markets for news?

What is a journalist’s role in making this happen?

How can journalists critically, and strategically lead and prepare for change?

How can journalists collaborate with citizen mappers to improve the quality of their coverage?

The presentation will be a blend of presentation, Q&A, hands-on design jam and/or exercises, modelling and “play” (as time allocation allows), and discussion.

Ryan Gosling, Journalist “Hey girl” meme:
… and a few search results below the Mad Men on Journalism find is another variation of the Ryan Gosling “Hey Girl” meme… 
Any other pop culture/journalism mash-ups?

Hey girl, I’m here to talk about journalism. I love journalism. Sometimes, when I’m near you, or looking at you, or just thinking of you, I feel like a journalist. That’s just how you make me feel. It’s true, girl. It’s you.

I scan posts about journalism on Tumblr now and then, which sometimes leads to interesting finds.

Looks like last night’s Mad Men premiere inspired a would-be meme about journalism.
