Should journalism worry about content marketing?
Columbia Journalism Review
At a glance, the Daily Growl could be any morning news meeting held in the “win the internet through pet videos” bureau of a lavishly funded media startup. Rows of eager young people stand behind their monitors — “TMZ-style,” managing editor Lisa Keller explained — as Keller solicits memes and news pegs to supplement the content already scheduled on the team’s editorial calendar. Any of the team’s 10 “community managers” and eight designers might produce as many as 10 postings a day.

The Texas Tribune is 5-years-old and sustainable. Now what?
Nieman Lab
The Tribune was created to be different from the start. Combine the instincts of a reporter with the guile of a door-to-door salesman and throw in an appetite for experimentation — now, on the site’s fifth anniversary, it looks like those instincts have paid off. The staff has collected plenty of accolades for its journalism. It’s averaging nearly 3 million pageviews a month. It’s on or atop any list of America’s most successful nonprofit news outlets.

8 content campaigns that have rocked 2014 — from the native advertising gurus
Adweek
It says something about our media culture that in a short time the term “native advertising” has gone from industry buzzword to pop culture punch line. Recently on "Last Week Tonight," John Oliver delivers an entertaining riff about the profusion of “sponsored content” on news sites. Oliver conceded that Netflix's native ad for the New York Times about female prison inmates, promoting the series "Orange Is the New Black," was “about as good as it gets.”

Journalism, independent and not
The New York Times
There was an interesting article about how smart hardware can allow users to browse anonymously and to foil snooping from governments. While the article mentioned the need for privacy for folks like Chinese dissidents, it didn’t address the fact that Americans might want the same kind of protection.There’s a reason for that. At the bottom of the piece, there was a graphic followed by some teeny type that said, “This article was written by an author contracted by Verizon.”

What's behind the great podcast renaissance?
New York Magazine
In 2001, Steve Jobs announced the original iPod, a music player that would make it possible for people to carry their entire album collections in their pockets. Over the next few years, a genre of narrative audio that took the device's name — "podcasting" —became a thriving mini-industry. There were podcasts about politics, sports, literature, comedy. Many lacked polish, but most had a kind of energy to them that suited their audiences well. Sometime around 2009 or 2010, the podcast scene seemed to wither.
