The danger of journalism that moves too quickly beyond fact
Poynter
"Journalism's future must be a collaboration in which citizens, technology and professional journalists work together to create a public intelligence that is deeper and wider than any of these could produce alone," writes Tom Rosenstiel, executive director of the American Press Institute. "Journalism is not being toppled by the Web — though certainly the financial model has been profoundly disrupted. Instead, technology is deepening journalism's potential to do what it always has: find out what is really happening that we cannot see directly, and help make our lives better by connecting us to one another."

Still a moderate outlook for ad spending
MediaLife Magazine
Things are looking up for the U.S. economy. May retail spending was up 0.6 percent, a bigger gain than expected, and unemployment continues to drop. Those promising economic signs should eventually improve the outlook for U.S. ad spending this year, but it hasn't quite happened yet.

Could AppNexus's digital ads be the unlikely savior of newspapers?
The Guardian
Brian O'Kelley, chief executive of AppNexus, detects signs that contextual advertising (which is appropriate for the content it appears with) will slowly come to the fore. "Is it going to be rapid enough to control the losses in print? I'm not sure, because the medicine we are bringing is still a few years away, and newspapers may not make it the whole way. … But I do think that over some period of time we're going to see the marketing community think to themselves, 'context is valuable to me — that's an engaged public that I want to reach.' And supply and demand rules in our world.”
