Earlier this month, I chose to publish Responsible Reporting: Field Guide for Bloggers, Journalists, and Other News Gatherers rather than wait for new data. The book’s first section cites valuable social media stats provided by the Pew Research Journalism Project’s “State of the News Media 2013” report. I knew the 2014 report would publish later in March.
The newer study is available, and I am now processing the data and updating the book, accordingly. There will be other freshups as well,
including but on reconsideration not the Mozilla CEO incident addressed in posts “News Gatherers, don’t violate ‘The Prime Directive’” and “When Media Values Collide“. They’re enough.
When the update publishes, the $7.99 sale price ends, and the regular $9.99 kicks in. So grab Responsible Reporting quick and save two bucks. You will get the update either way, but why pay more for it? The book is available from Amazon, Google Play, and Smashwords.
