The de-newspaperization of America is finally catching up with the de-industrialization of America. Newsroom jobs, especially decent paying ones, are vanishing everywhere—thanks to the shrinking number of print readers and the fact that digital advertising can’t fully support digital journalism. But the job losses seem to be coming faster—and the effect on the fabric of already struggling communities is far greater—in the rusty, rotting-factory cities of older America.
Philadelphia Daily News columnist Will Bunch, discussing the ongoing cuts facing the newspaper industry. Today’s ground zero? The Cleveland Plain Dealer, where as many as 50 people lost their jobs, finding out via phone if they were the ones. The Plain Dealer recently helped surface a major national story—the rediscovery of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, who went missing for nearly a decade—and Bunch expresses concern that the next story like that might stay under the radar.

Bienvenidos a FJP Latin America
Ever since we launched the Future Journalism Project we’ve tried to cover important media developments around the world. This is hard though. Our sources when doing so are primarily in English so we miss out on the nuance and important local stories that occur every day.
This summer we decided to do something about it: globalize.
And today we’re psyched to announce the launch of FJP Latin America. (Follow on Tumblr. Follow on Twitter). 
Edited by José L. Leyva and Roberto Juárez-Garza, FJP Latin America will focus on media, journalism, society and technology from Mexico to Tierra Del Fuego with relevant linkages to Spain and the Latino communities in the US and Canada. We’ll do so by monitoring Spanish-language media and other primary sources, translating them into English, and then commenting upon and analyzing what we find (again, in English) for the non-Spanish speakers among us. [more]

Some major props to FJP for coming up with a spin-off of a great publication. Read the full announcement here.

Everyone Slow Down, Redux Edition

This is an update to our post earlier this morning about slowing down, digesting and getting things right before rushing to report.

CNN didn’t and instead ran banner headlines on its site about the Supreme Court striking down the individual mandate.

Fox too but, well, somehow that’s less surprising.

This is tagged “slow news movement.” I like that.
