    Full story: Newsonomics: CEO Mark Thompson on offering more and more New York Times (and charging more for it)

    Excerpt:

    4.9 million. That’s the total number of New York Times subscribers overall, between print and digital. That’s already three times its peak in the good old days of print.

    4.1 million. That’s roughly how many paying news customers the Times has across digital (3,197,000 subscriptions) and print (869,599 average Sunday circulation).

    856,000. That’s the number of subscribers to its non-news products, Crosswords and Cooking.

    10 million. That remains the Times’ goal for 2025 for digital subscribers. It’s growth curve, says CEO Mark Thompson, will get it there in time.

    500,000: That’s the number of Times subscribers outside the United States. They may pay less for their subscriptions than do U.S. customers, but their importance to the Times is increasing. Today, they make up 16 percent of all Times subscribers; by 2025, the Times forecasts that 20 percent of them — or 2 million in total — will.

    Facebook says a pro-Trump media outlet used artificial intelligence to create fake people and push conspiracies

    [full story]

    Excerpt:

    The network of fake pages included 89 pages, 156 groups and 72 Instagram accounts. Epoch Media Group, which runs The Epoch Times, is run by practitioners of Falun Gong, who believe the world is soon headed for a judgment day, where all those labeled as Communists will be sent to hell. One former Epoch Times editor told NBC News in August that practitioners “believe that Trump was sent by heaven to destroy the Communist Party.”

    The Epoch Times was the largest buyer of pro-Trump ads on Facebook until August. The company was banned from purchasing ads on Facebook after it repeatedly violated the company’s political advertising rules.

    Six months in, here’s how the Florida news outlets’ climate change partnership is going

    [excerpts]

    What started out last summer as a partnership among six Florida news organizations to cover climate change in the state has now tripled in size, with 18 organizations — usually competitors with one another — now working together.

    […]

    Some Georgia news outlets approached the Florida Climate Reporting Network asking if they could join it — the Florida folks recommended instead that they just start their own statewide network. Other efforts have taken place nationally.
