"Today we are switching our coverage of Donald Trump to an emergency setting"

On everything that involves the coronavirus Donald Trump’s public statements have been unreliable. And that is why today we announce that we are shifting our coverage of the President to an emergency setting.

This means we are exiting from the normal system for covering presidents— which Trump himself exited long ago by using the microphone we have handed him to spread thousands of false claims, even as he undermines trust in the presidency and the press. True: he is not obliged to answer our questions. But neither are we obligated to assist him in misinforming the American people about the spread of the virus, and what is actually being done by his government.

...

Switching to emergency mode means our coverage will look different and work in a different way, as we try to prevent the President from misinforming you through us. Here are the major changes:

* We will not cover live any speech, rally, or press conference involving the president. The risk of passing along bad information is too great. Instead, we will attend carefully to what he says. If we can independently verify any important news he announces we will bring that to you— after the verification step. ...
-- Jay Rosen, NYU, 23 March 2020

Additional measures are listed, recommended reading.

The question. of how to deal with disinformation originating at the head-of-state level is ... plaguing ... the media. There's attending, and there's broadcasting. Credible suggestions have been made to not carry the sessions live, to read or paraphrase rather than play back responses, etc. Creating the value of record without the liability of soapbox.

On the Media discussed this in "How can we convey to you" (audio), the idea is originally attributed to Margaret Sullivan, Washington Post, and the Rosen piece quoted above.

OTM's Bob Garfield suggests a third path: switch to independent credible experts and authorities -- Dr. Anthony Fauci and Governor Cuomo specifically named.

I'm not a big fan of him, but here he is spot on. The BBC isn't perfect, but it's the best we have and it can't be easily replaced (same applies to the EU)

Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project


Marion Stokes was secretly recording television twenty-four hours a day for thirty years. It started in 1979 with the Iranian Hostage Crisis at the dawn of the twenty-four hour news cycle. It ended on December 14, 2012 while the Sandy Hook massacre played on television as Marion passed away. In between, Marion recorded on 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing revolutions, lies, wars, triumphs, catastrophes, bloopers, talk shows, and commercials that tell us who we were, and show how television shaped the world of today.

Before “fake news” Marion was fighting to protect the truth by archiving everything that was said and shown on television. The public didn’t know it, but the networks were disposing their archives for decades into the trashcan of history. Remarkably Marion saved it, and now the Internet Archive will digitize her tapes and we’ll be able to search them online for free.

This is a mystery in the form of a time capsule. It’s about a radical Communist activist, who became a fabulously wealthy recluse archivist. Her work was crazy but it was also genius, and she would pay a profound price for dedicating her life to this visionary and maddening project.

Delta’s test of free in-flight Wi-Fi may shame other airlines into offering service

Delta’s test of free Wi-Fi means the service is available on around 55 domestic short-, medium- and long-haul flight segments a day.

“Customers are accustomed to having access to free Wi-Fi during nearly every other aspect of their journey, and Delta believes it should be free when flying, too,” said Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Delta’s director of onboard product, in a statement.

Results show the majority of news reports were episodic rather than thematic, focusing on the traffic event and the parties involved in the crash, particularly the bicyclist. Vocabulary, grammatical structure, and narrative framing of news reports largely functioned to remove blame from the motorist and to highlight the bicyclist’s actions. These linguistic strategies reflect the assumption that responsibility for safety rests on the bicyclist and detracts attention from potential social policy reform that would lead to fewer bicyclist fatalities.
