Hahah, that model is just so pervasive, so "in the air we breath" that I was starting to wonder where it actually came from and whether there was some scholar I should be citing.

Hey journalism studies peeps! What’s the canonical reference for the “news cycle” model of gathering—>production—>dissemination ? Is there one?

Something I continue to harp on: It's important to be open and transparent about the choices and decisions that go into public models. Models are based on assumptions and being honest about what those are is necessary to put the non-modeled, epistemic uncertainty into context.

Attention product managers in journalism! For an upcoming series of articles on the website, we seek a good case study on developing a new media product. Write it yourself or be interviewed -- and help educate folks about product thinking in journalism. Ideas?

Happy to see that my ⁦⁩ book “Networked Press Freedom” can be downloaded for FREE — PDFs of the whole book or individual chapters. If you’re into platforms, publishers, & digital journalism’s democratic role there’s something there for you.

"The creator of a viral video told thousands a 15-year-old boy was killed by police Sunday. The misinformation — and the police response on the scene in Englewood — may have led to civil unrest Downtown, activists said."

Great point. I agree that intent could be diagnostic for the processes/mechanisms leading to bad outcomes ... which could inform forward responsibilities for mitigating bad outcomes.
