Media-related updates from elsewhere

Here are some non-local media links that I found interesting this week:

  • Podcast platform RadioPublic has proposed a new system called PodPass that would help to deliver premium podcast content in any enabled app. "If it can gather enough momentum, it’s still a very long road for the idea to go from proposal to wide implementation," writes Hot Pod.
  • In a note to staff, New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger said a coordinated campaign by President Trump’s allies to attack hundreds of journalists in retaliation for coverage of the administration "represents an escalation of an ongoing campaign against the free press" and that "their goal is to silence critics and undermine the public’s faith in independent journalism."
  • The Membership Puzzle Project has shared an article on how smart investments in paid lead acquisition can help grow membership.
  • Apparently The Economist has more than double the amount of web traffic it receives via newsletters over the past year. Here’s more on how they grow revenue by experimenting with the digital experience.
  • If elected president next year, Bernie Sanders says he would "reverse the Trump administration’s attempts to make corporate media mergers even more likely in the future" and would "start requiring major media corporations to disclose whether or not their corporate transactions and merger proposals will involve significant journalism layoffs."
