Where writers and editors connect

A Preview: What We’re Talking About on Editorchat Tonight 2/11

with one comment

In light of recent developments with Newsweek’s new business model and revelations about reporting in real time from the Public Editor on NYT’s reporting about Caroline Kennedy’s bid for senate seat we have cooked up the following questions:

Given the changes that are occuring, do we value speed (the breaking story) more or differently that we used to?

Book authors, how important are timely topics to your agents/publishers? How fast can you knock out a book?

How is speed affecting newsgathering, specifically sourcing?

Is fact-checking up to the writer, or do you still use fact-checkers?

How can writers and editors work together to provide content that people will actually pay for? 

How can we all better understand and target our audience?

Editors: would you opt for an automated newsfeed for hyper-local news (eg: Outside.In)?
