  • Fallacy of Targeted Demographics M A K E T H E N E W S “ In the name of efficiency and profit margins, we did nothing to help create a new generation interested in news.” (Kovach and Rosenstiel, p. 211)
  • Fallacy of Targeted Demographics M A K E T H E N E W S What problems come with targeting demographics?
  • Fallacy of Targeted Demographics M A K E T H E N E W S “ Stations that cover a wider range of topics were more likely to be building or holding onto their audience than those that did not.” (Project for Excellence in Journalism Local TV project, “ Quality brings Higher Ratings.”)
  • Journalism is not a Science, it is Subjective M A K E T H E N E W S “ People do not expect perfection. They do expect good intentions.” (Kovach and Rosenstiel p. 213) . . . . .

  • Marketing vs. Marketing M A K E T H E N E W S Thrillist marketing model: – Melding of commerce and content – Advertising and editorial used as bridge, not a wall – Reviews, ads, and sales = “allied email” – News feeds, Facebook and Twitter serve as editors (New York Times, March 21, 2011, Section B, p. 1)

  • New Market Research for Journalists M A K E T H E N E W S How are we going to be tomorrow’s journalists? We must be really good! . . . . .
  • New Market Research for Journalists M A K E T H E N E W S How are we going to be tomorrow’s journalists? We must be really good! “ How a story is gathered and reported … number, balance, and expertise of sources … its relevancy to audience, … are twice as important as topic in determining audience ratings.” (Kovach and Rosenstiel p. 221) . . . . .
