#40: so, what's journalism for again?
7 screenshots that claim to know
I’m traveling this week so just a quick post from my notebook, and a small request.
I recently started collecting screenshots of ads I see for journalism, as part of a larger effort to define what news is/should be/claims to be.
Apparently, news can help me:
Trust my decisions
Confront the climate crisis
Get smarter in 5 minutes a day
Be with me
Talk to people (or about what people are talking about?)
Stay informed on things people try to silence
I include the screenshots below.
But first, a request:
Have you been served news/journalism ads lately? If so, please email a screenshot to me! I’m building a collection.
Note: I’m intentionally collecting the ads that reach me (on social or because I clicked to a site and it popped up), rather than going and looking for them.
1. Trust my decisions
2. Represent me (and all of us)
3. Confront the climate crisis
4. Get smarter in just 5 minutes a day
(this was a video and that’s what the video said but also what their website says)
5. Work for and with me
6. Talk to people (or about what people are talking about?)
7. Keep me informed on things people try to silence
