modern media is deeply flawed and increasingly fragmented.
It's hard enough to sort through
the daily echo chamber of blogs and websites and social
media posts, much less make sense of it all. NewsBlues
scours more than 200 news outlets each morning and compiles
a concise collection of the day's top media news, linked
directly to the original URL source. We add perspective, curate the stories into an easily digestible
newsletter, and offer insightful commentary.
Too busy to wade through all the clutter
and repetition? Let us do it for you.
NewsBlues does not rush
headlong to be first. NewsBlues does its best to be accurate.
Our daily newsletter is assembled overnight and is posted online
weekdays at 8:30 a.m. We cover news the old fashioned
way... truthfully, accurately, objectively, and impartially.
Since 1998, we have offered our readers a front row seat to the
unprecedented corporatization of media and the government-approved
dismantling of television's obligation to serve the American
We've reported on the shallow lawsuits and vapid
management missteps. We've covered the steady flow of news
personalities involved in domestic spats, DUI arrests, disorderly
conduct, sexual harassment, hallway
scuffles, shoplifting busts, social media missteps, open mics, F-bombs,
N-words, and general "problematic behavior." It has
been, and continues to be, a target-rich environment.
We have watched the unhealthy
transformation of TV news: the disingenuous branding slogans;
the steady shift to shallow tabloid content; the all-about-me
reporting; the casting aside of
older, experienced talent; the headlong pursuit of younger
demographics; the drive to build newsrooms on ethnically-balanced
quotas and newscasts on research-driven formulas; the abandonment
of investigative journalism out of fear of litigation; the
proliferation of 24-hour cable news and its need to fill time with
opinion; the politicalization of news and the loss of balance; and
the increasingly intense focus on the never-ending push to
"do more with less."
We are clearly aware that NewsBlues
has flourished on the bones of a failing industry. But we are
heartened by the fact that without NewsBlues, much of what
we report here on a daily basis would have been buried beneath
the white noise of corporate spin and management double talk.
If you are a TV news
professional, or if you are associated with the television news
business in any way, you simply can't afford NOT to
read NewsBlues daily.
