1. “The leaked New York Times innovation report is one of the key documents of this media age.” It’s an astonishing look inside the cultural change still needed in the shift to digital—even in one of the world’s greatest newsrooms. Read it.
“I confess I didn’t feel anything quite so revelatory when I read last week’s leaked version—which read like an indoor-voice summary, expected and designed to be leaked to the broader world. This fuller version is quite different—it’s raw. (Or at least as raw as digital strategy documents can get.) You can sense the frayed nerves and the frustration at a newsroom that is, for all its digital successes, still in many ways oriented toward an old model. It’s journalists turning their own reporting skills on themselves.”
