I made the mistake, I guess, of answering briefly and politely about what a column is, and saying I understood that he or she disagreed with my opinion. That prompted two more uninformed outbursts. With emoji and cries of "fake news."

Also includes great @jayrosen_nyu line about the 'brand promise' of the Trump administration to the loyal base, regarding the press: 'Watch, we will put these people down for you.'
I interviewed @Acosta yesterday. He had a theory for why the briefings ended. Sanders had been caught in too many lies herself. She knew that reporters would keep asking about them at the briefings. @Sulliview: "... the disdainful Queen of Gaslighting." https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/sarah-sanders-was-the-disdainful-queen-of-gaslighting/2019/06/14/d6eb36c8-8e8d-11e9-adf3-f70f78c156e8_story.html

I would say it’s not hypocritical to want journalists to cover the environment but not to want to read about it. Unread news reporting is important if it is relevant in the future - business model debates over journalism have often obscured this fact https://www.axios.com/news-consumption-read-topics-56467fe6-81bd-4ae5-9173-cdff9865deda.html
 
This reminds me of my little experiment while PE about NYT readers demanding more substantive, issue-oriented coverage of campaigns. But what did they mostly read? Yeah, the horserace. (Broccoli vs. chocolate cake.)
 
My favorite example of this comes from working at The Observer in the 90s. Extensive reader survey showed people wanted ‘more environmental coverage’. Our response was to put ‘Britain’s Dirtiest Beaches’ on the *cover of the color magazine* ....
 
Murdoch of all people has a famous line about the value of unread news.
 
The brand value to a newspaper of big serious front page stories nobody reads past the jump. (I think?? Is that right @murraymatt? Did I make that up?)
 
I would recommend interpretation of these events that goes a little deeper than 'people are such hypocrites!' For example, they may "check" on the status of the horse race a lot because they are anxious about it, but they may value more the meatier coverage.
 
I think this is right too ..I am optimistic we are moving towards better discussion , understand and actions around these
 
That's a good point, Jay.
My theory here after thirty years of studying reader and traffic data: people want these subjects covered, they want power held to account and wrongdoing exposed. But they don’t want to read about them every day ...Attention and metrics in news have never accounted for this https://twitter.com/chrismoranuk/status/1138476880443727874
 
Sounds right. I wonder if there's a way to make this kind of coverage much more engaging so that they DO want to read it every day, or at least more often. Or at least be willing to support it!
 
I think this is a good question but I also think we need to leave some room for tedious stock taking and record building. Ideally all newsrooms should do both, but often stories emerge to be engaging only after patient years of (dare I say dull) reporting

I'm afraid that those who say that local newspapers should stop whining and heal themselves really have very little idea of what they're talking about. How many of you have worked at one in the past decade? (I have.)
 
Who said that, and what were their actual words?
 
I've worked with many editors who tried to find new paths in the last decade. Most left in despair at the inability to make change happen.
