Most conservatives don’t understand purpose of journalism, says founder of website on media bias

In 2005, Matthew Sheffield launched what would become one of the preeminent conservative websites devoted to calling out liberal bias in the mainstream media.

Over the last decade, however, Sheffield — who founded NewsBusters with his brother Greg and worked there until 2014 — has come to believe that he was part of a problem, not a solution, and is now working to correct that error.

The problem, as he describes it, is that most conservatives think the purpose of journalism is to wage partisan political warfare, and that has created an ecosystem on the right where facts and truth are increasingly irrelevant.

Why Social Media Matters For Google SEO

The PR Maven®, CEO & Founder, Marshall Communications, creating & implementing marketing/PR/personal branding strategies.

I tend to spend a lot of time on social media. And, in the back of my mind, I justify it by saying to myself, “I need to do this for my business.”

Of course, I’m not alone. Americans spend an average of over two hours per day on social media, and I’d guess many of them are small business owners who want to stay “current.” Entrepreneurs like me want to learn more about the latest trends and techniques, such as Instagram Reels (which replicates TikTok). However, I also enjoy connecting with friends old and new as well as meeting friends of friends. I find it’s a great way to remember people I’ve met along the way and to reconnect with old friends from school. I am naturally a social person, so much so that

Ezra Klein leaves Vox, the website he founded, for New York Times, in a digital media A-list exodus

Klein, 36, left The Post in 2014 to start Vox with two colleagues, Melissa Bell and Matthew Yglesias. The site — which publishes analytical reported articles explaining everything from Boeing’s issues with its 737 Max jet to Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian connections — is part of a constellation of specialized news-and-commentary sites owned by Vox Media, including SB Nation (sports), Curbed (real estate) and Eater (food). Vox is based in Washington and New York.

Despite multimillion-dollar investments from Wall Street firms and traditional media companies, many of the top names in digital media have struggled to realize the profits once imagined from the epochal transition from traditional print and broadcast media to the online kind. This has led to layoffs, waning of capital investment and a broad industry retrenchment.

Fierce competition for advertising and subscriber dollars, high overhead and more recently the pandemic have made it difficult to reap large returns.

BuzzFeed acquires news website HuffPost from Verizon Media

(Reuters) – BuzzFeed on Thursday bought news website HuffPost from Verizon Communications Inc VZ.N in the latest sign of consolidation in the online media world.

The deal brings two once-hot digital properties – viewed as the future of news media but which have suffered from competition for ad dollars from Alphabet’s GOOGL.O Google and Facebook FB.O – under the control of one of HuffPost’s co-founders.

Verizon, which also owns Yahoo and TechCrunch, said it will invest in the new combined company and take a minority stake.

The companies will syndicate content across each other’s platforms, explore monetization opportunities and leverage ad formats, the companies said in a statement.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In an interview, BuzzFeed Chief Executive Officer Jonah Peretti, who co-founded the Huffington Post in 2005, said he was attracted to the property’s more affluent and age-diverse audience which “enhanced the size and scale of
