The Guardian, Britain’s most aggressively digital-first paper, is now sharing daily story budgets on its website as part of a two-week experiment. The goal is to get comments from readers before stories are published. The newspaper writes: “We won’t quite show you everything. We can’t tell you about stories that are under embargo or, sometimes, exclusives that we want to keep from our competitors, but most of our plans will be there for all to see, from the parliamentary debates we plan to cover to the theatre we plan to review.”

GigaOM’s Mathew Ingram observes: “The bottom line is that the secrecy that newspapers used to operate under no longer works. Not only is there more competition for stories, but mainstream media outlets no longer have a monopoly relationship with their readers, who can find the same information from dozens of alternative sources.”
