Republicans catch a wave, but now must ride it out
In the early months of the 114th Congress, House and Senate Republicans are expected to go after “low hanging fruit” and push legislation that they believe has bipartisan support.

When should newspapers turn to a consultant for guidance on production operations?
Editor & Publisher
It’s easy to get so deep into the proverbial weeds of everyday workflow that you cease to realize how difficult the trudge has become or even notice you’re bushwhacking where you would have sworn there was once a fairly straight-and-narrow path. When do you admit to yourself that you’re lost or that the terrain has become so unfamiliar that your built-in GPS isn’t going to be much use in guiding you to your intended destination?

Mobile devices spur sharing of timely content
eMarketer
In the age of social media, it's typical to first learn about a major event via social feeds. The reason why is clear — the proliferation of social and mobile facilitate the sharing of timely news. According to Q3 2014 data from ShareThis, social media users are much more likely to share content via mobile devices after a major current event occurs. The data comes from the analysis of content shares regarding major events such as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the Ferguson Riots, the Apple Launch Event and Shark Week.

Inside the HuffPost Live video-generating boiler room
Digiday
The HuffPost Live platform streams eight hours of news video every weekday, but that’s not where most people are seeing it. The 70-person HuffPost Live team creates the majority of The Huffington Post’s original videos from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST each day with live conversations about the news. That strategy has enabled The Huffington Post to cheaply produce around 400 original video clips each week.

Facebook shutting down a key path for political outreach
Yahoo!
Barack Obama’s reelection campaign pioneered a pathway for political campaigns to reach voters through Facebook when it released an app that helped supporters target their friends with Obama-related material. But as the 2016 presidential campaign approaches, Facebook is rolling out a change that will prevent future campaigns from doing this, closing the door on one of the most sophisticated social targeting efforts ever undertaken.

News doesn't make money at BuzzFeed, but it's all part of the social strategy
The Media Briefing
BuzzFeed is undoubtedly one of the runaway digital media success stories, but its huge push to be known as a serious news publisher often sits uncomfortably with its roots and ongoing approach to making money. For starters, despite being largely known now for being more than merely cat curation, it continues to play to its old reputation in its marketing materials at the many events its execs speak at.

Let local TV chart its own tech future
TVNewsCheck
Broadcasters are taking back broadcasting. The nonsense that cell phone offerings of “LTE and DVB Broadcasting” in their various flavors — demonstrably less efficient and lower quality wireless substitutes for over-the-air broadcasting — are satisfactory replacements for what local broadcasters do is one of the great con jobs of the 21st century “Newspeak.”

Seriously dark traffic: 500 million people globally hide their IP addresses
Digiday
As many as 410 million people worldwide are using software to browse the Internet in anonymity, according to a new report from research firm GlobalWebIndex. Private browsers, VPNs and proxy servers help mask a user’s true location by routing their access through another country. This technology helps Web users remain anonymous and overcome restrictions to sites like Facebook and to U.S.-only TV shows on Netflix and Hulu, for example.
