Media-related updates from elsewhere

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

  • We can’t fight fake news without saving local journalism, says Emily Bell.
  • LION Publishers has received a $1 million grant to help it do more for local, independent, online news sites.
  • Netflix had about 6.5 million subscribers in Canada as of the end of Q3 2019.
  • Axios is looking to raise at least $20 million in a funding round that would value the company at about $200 million.
  • "Those who care about the vitality of journalism should here take a pause and ask why they don’t feel disturbed," writes Marc Ambinder in the New York Times about the House Intelligence Committee’s subpoena of John Solomon’s phone records.
