This week demonstrated the power of shared experiences and having some collective fun -- i.e., virality. It began with social media all atwitter over Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech -- and backstage comments. Next up, the Internet was riveted by The Great Llama Chase -- as the...

My Q and A With Firas Kittaneh, Who Has Glimpsed the Future of Sleep

(3) Comments | Posted February 27, 2015 | 1:27 PM

Firas Kittaneh wants to disrupt the mattress industry. And the success of his online mattress company Amerisleep is about more than people's increased willingness to buy a mattress online without every trying it out in a showroom. It's about something much bigger: our changing attitude toward sleep.

(3) Comments | Posted February 26, 2015 | 10:54 AM

Perhaps more than any other group, athletes have fully embraced sleep as a performance enhancement tool. Top athletes are, of course, all about results. So there's no better place than the world of sports to see the tangible effects of sleep (including pre-game naps) on performance.

Tonight, after an interminable build-up, we finally find out who will take home an Oscar -- and who will be forced to smile gamely when someone else's name is called. My can't-miss prediction: there will be at least two Fifty Shades of Grey jokes. Back in the real...

This week, Jon Stewart announced his retirement from The Daily Show. He'll be missed -- not just because he was funny, but because he told the truth in an era when much of the media wouldn't. Later that same night, 60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon was...

긍정적인 뉴스를 더 보도해야 하는 이유

(0) Comments | Posted February 9, 2015 | 6:49 PM

언론매체들은 지난 수십 년 동안 "피가 나는 기사가 주목받는다"는 말을 보도의 기준처럼 생각해왔다. 폭력, 비극, 부정부패 등이 신문이건 컴퓨터나 휴대폰 화면이건 상단에 실려야 한다는 것인데, 이런 뉴스가 대중의 관심을 끄는 가장 효과적인 방법이라고 믿기 때문이다.

하지만 이런 생각은 틀렸다. 윤리적으로는 물론 실질적으로도 그렇다. 우리는 언론인이로서 정확한 상황을 독자들에게 알려야 한다....

Funziona!: tutte le notizie che vale la pena pubblicare

Nel mondo dei giornali c'è un vecchio modo di dire che per decenni ha informato il pensiero delle redazioni: "Le ferite aperte aprono i pezzi". Come a dire che le storie tragiche, di violenza, sulle disfunzioni e la corruzione godono della massima visibilità -- sono le prime ad esser comunicate,...

Warum Journalisten nur die halbe Wahrheit sagen - und wie wir das ändern können

(4) Comments | Posted February 7, 2015 | 7:20 PM

Im Nachrichtengeschäft gibt es ein altes Sprichwort, das die Arbeit von Redaktionen seit Jahrzehnten prägt: „When it bleeds it leads", je blutiger, desto besser die Schlagzeile. Das bedeutet: Berichte über Gewalttaten, Tragödien, Störungen und Korruption - zur vollen Stunde, ganz oben auf den Nachrichtenseiten oder auf der Titelseite - verkaufen...

What's Working: Raconter ce qu'il se passe vraiment

Il est un vieux dicton dans le monde de l'information, qui guide la pensée éditoriale depuis des décennies: "Si ça saigne, ça paye" ("If it bleeds, it leads"). En clair, les articles comportant violence, drame, dysfonctionnements et corruption auront la priorité -sur l'écran d'ordinateur ou de téléphone, ou sur les...

Ό,τι δουλεύει: Όλες οι ειδήσεις (που αξίζει να δημοσιευθούν)

(4) Comments | Posted February 7, 2015 | 8:00 AM

Υπάρχει ένα ρητό για τις ειδήσεις, που καθοδηγεί εδώ και δεκαετίες τη σκέψη όλων των συντακτικών ομάδων: «Το αίμα πουλάει». Δηλαδή ιστορίες βίας, τραγωδίας, δυσλειτουργίας και διαφθοράς προηγούνται -στην ώρα, στην οθόνη του υπολογιστή ή του τηλεφώνου, ή στην εφημερίδα - γιατί οι δημοσιογράφοι πιστεύουν ότι αυτές είναι οι ιστορίες...

There's an old saying in the news business, one that's guided editorial thinking for decades: "If it bleeds, it leads." That is, stories of violence, tragedy, dysfunction and corruption get top billing -- at the top of the hour, at the top of the computer or phone screen or above...

Existe um ditado antigo do jornalismo que vem guiando o pensamento editorial há décadas: "Se tem sangue, é manchete". Ou seja, histórias de violência, tragédia e corrupção sempre ganham destaque - abrem os telejornais, vão para o topo das telas do computador e do telefone e ficam acima da dobra...
