Technology forcing the pace of media change.

first_imgBy Andrew CareyWHILE technology is dictating how news is delivered in the age of digital media, good storytelling and quality journalism will stand out on any news platform, according to Irish Times editor Kevin O’Sullivan.Presenting the Irish Times Journalism award to University of Limerick student Ruth O’Shaughnessy for her work on the implementation of the European Globalisation Fund programme at Dell, Mr O’Sullivan said that while news gathering was increasingly ‘digital first’, it didn’t mean the role of the newspaper was devalued.“We are, and will continue to be, in the business of breaking significant news but a core strength in our case will be interpretation. That’s what we feel we are good at. We will publish journalism in the public interest – and that might come at a cost,” he explained.In the new world of citizen journalism, Mr O’Sullivan said that tweeting first may not always be correct as it is still important to check all the facts.“The world has got very noisy in the media sense but good storytelling and quality journalism still stand out on any platform or channel… and are increasingly considered of value,” he continued.Addressing UL journalism students on the role of the journalist in the multimedia era, Mr O’Sullivan acknowledged that a cultural shift in tone was needed to respond to the change in reading and consumption patterns.Acknowledging that there would be winners and losers in the new media landscape, the Irish Times editor said that the world of journalism was still “exciting, chaotic and unrelenting”.He said that a vibrant curiosity, a sharp news sense and the ability to write and communicate with clarity are still highly valuable in the media business.Addressing the issue of how journalism will be financed in the future, he questioned whether or not the ‘paid content horse’ had bolted in that “the majority of consumers will never again consider news something they have to pay for”. Mr O’Sullivan added that “digital platforms are notable for their new and engaging informality, but for many traditional newspapers, that is a different country. A cultural shift in tone is required… a move to smart, fun, witty; basic and sophisticated all at the same time is required, it’s the digital way of doing content. There is no guarantee of media success in the current flux but fairness and rigorous adherence to facts are prerequisites for sound journalism,” Mr O’Sullivan concluded.

FDA suspends plan to close field labs

first_img Von Eschenbach denied that the closings relate to outsourcing, but he later said the agency would consider certifying or credentialing private labs to do some testing, the AP report said. However, the next day President Bush issued an executive order establishing a cabinet-level interagency working group to promote the safety of imported products. The panel was created in light of recent food contamination and other product safety problems linked to imported goods. The order instructs the group to report back in September unless an extension is deemed necessary. Von Eschenbach, in an Aug 1 AP report, said he wanted to make sure that before proceeding, the FDA was “doing the right thing and doing it in the right way.” Margaret Glavin, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for regulatory affairs, said the agency’s proposal is to close 7 of its 13 labs, CongressDaily reported yesterday. She wrote in an e-mail to her staff that the FDA might reconsider the lab reorganization plan, as well as a proposed consolidation of 20 district offices into 16, depending on the findings of the president’s import safety working group, the report said. Jul 18 press release on Bush executive orderhttp://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/07/20070718-4.html Some lawmakers, however, oppose the lab consolidation plan, and CongressDaily reported that House and Senate agricultural appropriations bills include language that would stop the FDA from shuttering the labs until it can prove that the closures are warranted. In a Jul 31 letter to the FDA, Stupak and Dingell wrote that they couldn’t fathom why the FDA would contract out a critical import testing program, “particularly in light of the numerous recent incidences of harmful foods exported from other countries,” CongressDaily reported. See also: Aug 3, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach announced this week the postponement of a plan to close about half of the FDA’s field laboratories until the agency hears the recommendations of President Bush’s import safety working group. Bart Stupak, a Democratic congressman from Michigan, told CongressDaily that the FDA, in reams of documents submitted to a house subcommittee, has not explained why consolidating the labs makes sense from safety or cost perspectives. “Whether they are closed today or 90 days from now, closing the FDA’s field labs and consolidating the district offices, which places more power in Washington, makes no sense for America’s food safety,” Stupak was quoted as saying. Von Eschenbach had said the FDA laboratory reorganization would greatly enhance the agency’s ability to assess and rank risks to better utilize inspection, enforcement, and analytical resources, the Associated Press (AP) reported on Jul 17. Stupak and John D. Dingell, another Democratic congressman from Michigan, asked whether the lab consolidation plan represents a step toward privatizing or outsourcing the testing of imported foods, the AP reported.last_img read more
