Gone fishin’

It’s summertime, and despite the occasional rainstorm — which left the Lab’s office flooded earlier this month and still a little stinky — the bright sun calls. We’re going to take a mid-summer break from posting and tweeting. We’ll be back before the end of the month, with big plans for the fall. Until then, we’ll be sipping something cold outdoors and going hours without thinking the words “paywall” or “business model.”

What I learned in my second year on Substack
“I truly wish every reporter could have the experience of getting a raise on the same day they produced something of value to their readers.”

“We also found systematic differences between the parties in the U.S., where Republican politicians were found to share untrustworthy websites more than nine times as often as Democratic politicians.”
“You don’t know which side is playing you”: The authors of Meme Wars have some advice for journalists
“The media treating Twitter like an assignment editor is one of the fundamental errors that enabled meme warriors to play everyone.”
