    Plutôt que de réutiliser les données de l’administration, il faut créer ses propres bases de données. C’est seulement en développant une statistique en dehors de l’état que l’on est capable de mesurer le monde - y compris l’action de l’état - en restant indépendant.

  • Shut Up About Harvard | FiveThirtyEight
    https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/shut-up-about-harvard

    “Ninety-five percent of the newsroom probably went to private institutions, they went to four-year institutions, and they went to elite institutions,” said Jeff Selingo, a longtime higher-education journalist who has a new book focused on giving advice to a broader group of students. “It is exactly the opposite of the experience for the bulk of American students.”

    (...)

    That myopia has real consequences for education policy. (...) The media’s focus on elite schools draws attention away from state cuts to higher-education funding, for example.

    Ce post est le dernier d’une série d’articles visant à partager les principaux enseignements de sept années de journalisme multimédia. Sept ans au service de L’Echo, un « vieux média » dans lequel il fait bon travailler et expérimenter. Après la question du greffon numérique en rédaction, de la gestion d’équipe, du débat entre polyvalence et spécialisation, de la production multimédia et de la communauté des « journalistes partageurs », finissons par le commencement : le graal de l’éditorial.

    S’il ne fallait retenir qu’un seul enseignement, après sept années d’expérimentations multimédias et d’une patiente observation du paysage médiatique, je ne citerais pas les disruptions technologiques en elles-mêmes, mais ce qu’elles ont révélé de la presse : un prodigieux essoufflement éditorial et une déconnexion croissante avec son lectorat.

    La leçon qu’en tire la chercheuse est sans appel : « Il existe un certain inconfort à responsabiliser un individu pour la mort d’autrui, alors que d’induire une responsabilité à un individu pour son propre décès demeure plus accepté ». En entrevue, Joëlle Gélinas souligne que « cet inconfort est for probablement culturel et pas propre aux journalistes ». Elle se demande aussi si ce type de formulation n’est pas utilisé pour préserver la présomption d’innocence des chauffeurs impliqués.

  • From boredom to labor and labor to boredom | MadaMasr

    You were sitting, smoking a cigarette, in our new office space underneath a canvas bearing the words: “this sea is mine.” The line comes from a Mahmoud Darwish poem, A Mural, popularized in poetic resistance to political and corporate colonization.

    The canvas is now four years old. Back then, some weeks after Mada Masr was born on June 30, the day of a military political take-over in Egypt, the bloodiest event in the country’s modern history took place. Over a thousand people belonging to or sympathizing with the Muslim Brotherhood were killed when their sit-ins were cleared out.

    A curfew was imposed by the military to contain the ensuing chaos. It started at 7 pm and ended at 6 am everyday. After work, we often gathered at one of our homes, some of us cooking, some of us painting to kill the time and the boredom.

    We had been dramatically laid off as a team a few months earlier. Fearing the boredom of being without a newspaper in the midst of an imminent and radical political upheaval, we started an online publication. At the time, I wrote, “We wanted to re-appropriate our journalism on this heated day, because it is through the prism of this craft that we engage with politics and activism.”

    I might as well have also said that it is through the prism of this craft that we resist existential boredom.

  • Comment des journalistes inventent la popularité de Macron :

    https://scontent-cdt1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/19875612_686369508224332_2583791316724363122_n.jpg?oh=fb59d144970080308156589b70d421c9&oe=59D28204

    Comme une pique adressée aux gens qui, comme nous, dénoncent la dérive autoritariste et ultra libérale du gouvernement, Geoffroy Clavel, chef du service politique du Huffington Post (journal en ligne partenaire du Monde), dévoile la Vérité : « Aux yeux de l’opinion en revanche, Emmanuel Macron et Edouard Philippe se portent comme un charme ». Nous autres critiques de Macron aurions perdu l’accord du peuple, tellement favorable au président qu’on peut parler « d’état de grâce relatif », selon Clavel http://www.huffingtonpost.fr/2017/07/05/forte-progression-de-la-popularite-de-macron-et-philippe-jusqu_a_2301

    Pour affirmer cela, le journaliste s’appuie sur le « baromètre » politique réalisé en partenariat avec l’institut YouGouv (Dont nous racontions dans une précédente chronique les pratiques pour entretenir un panel de sondés multi-tâches, prompt à parler en même temps de leur choix d’opérateur internet et de leurs préférences politiques :
    http://www.frustrationlarevue.fr/linterdiction-sondages-finir-politique-paris-hippiques

    On apprend ainsi que le président de la République a atteint 43% d’opinion favorable, ce qui justifierait le titre placé en Une du magazine en ligne. Sauf que si on compare cette « popularité » avec celle des deux précédents présidents, Sarkozy et Hollande, on réalise alors que le « Huff Post » prend ses rêves pour des réalités. Il y a cinq ans, le même Geoffrey Clavel nous apprenait que Hollande était approuvé par 63% des sondés, un taux comparable à celui Sarkozy cinq ans auparavant, approuvé par 67% d’entre eux.

    Au regard de l’histoire récente, Macron est donc le plus impopulaire, et ce, alors même que sa communication propagandesque est très maîtrisée (Macron dans un sous-marin, Macron joue au tennis, Macron est le roi Soleil, etc.) et qu’une bonne partie de nos journaux ne disent que du bien de lui.

    De plus, le fameux baromètre https://d25d2506sfb94s.cloudfront.net/cumulus_uploads/document/udey4f3ogh/Results%20for%20Huffington%20Post%20(Barom%C3%A8tre)%2008 donne d’autres informations que Clavel s’est bien gardé de mentionner : Page 7, on apprend par exemple que les sondés ne sont que 26% a estimer que le président a une « bonne gestion de l’économie », tandis que 38% la juge mauvaise. Page 9, on apprend que seuls 31% des sondés sont d’accord avec l’affirmation « La société que prône le gouvernement est globalement celle dans laquelle je souhaite vivre », contre ... 51% en désaccord. Il est où l’état de grâce ?

    Dans ce « baromètre », dont l’appellation évoque l’objectivité de la science et la fiabilité d’un outil de mesure, les questions sont d’ailleurs tournées de façon bien étranges : Page 13, on trouve ce genre d’affirmation à infirmer ou confirmer : « Le gouvernement a de bonnes intentions, même si je ne suis pas toujours d’accord avec ses positions » ou encore « Le gouvernement va de l’avant, et propose des mesures modernes » : Mais qu’est-ce que ça peut bien vouloir dire « moderne » ou « aller de l’avant » ?!

    Il semble bien que le « baromètre » utilisé par le Huff Post et son chef du service politique soit un outil pipé, dont l’interprétation semble pouvoir se faire uniquement en fonction des désirs du journaliste.

    Mais pourquoi ne les exprime-t-il pas clairement, plutôt que de se planquer derrière ces sondages bidons ? Accessoire indispensable au journalisme contemporain, les « baromètres » et autres « indicateurs objectifs » du genre ne sont qu’un avatar de plus de journaux d’opinion qui prétendent à l’objectivité et à la neutralité pour mieux emporter notre consentement.

  • #Une_Métamorphose_iranienne

    Le cauchemar de Mana Neyestani commence en 2006, le jour où il dessine une conversation entre un enfant et un cafard dans le supplément pour enfants d’un hebdomadaire iranien. Le problème est que le cafard dessiné par Mana utilise un mot azéri. Les azéris, un peuple d’origine turc vivant au nord de l’Iran, sont depuis longtemps opprimés par le régime central. Pour certains, le dessin de Mana est la goutte d’eau qui fait déborder le vase et un excellent prétexte pour déclencher une émeute. Le régime de Téhéran a besoin d’un bouc émissaire, ce sera Mana. Lui et l’éditeur du magazine sont emmenés dans la Prison 209, une section non-officielle de la prison d’Evin, véritable prison dans la prison sous l’administration de la VEVAK, le Ministère des Renseignements et de la Sécurité Nationale. Ce n’est pas un endroit très agréable..
. Alors que le deux hommes subissent des semaines d’isolement et d’interrogatoires, les azéris organisent de nombreuses manifestations anti-gouvernementales. Les autorités font tirer sur les manifestants, faisant de nombreuses victimes. Pour les autorités, tout est de la faute de Mana.

    Au bout de deux mois de détention, Mana obtient enfin un droit de sortie temporaire. Il décide alors de s’enfuir avec sa femme. Après un long périple qui les fera passer par les Émirats Arabes Unis, La Turquie et la Chine, ils parviendront à atteindre la Malaisie pour s’y installer avant de rejoindre Paris en 2010. Bouleversant, Une Métamorphose iranienne est une plongée en apnée dans le système totalitaire kafkaïen mis en place par le régime iranien.

    Qu’un possible scoop sur une #affaire_politico-financière impliquant le numéro deux du nouveau parti au pouvoir ne soit pas jugé intéressant, voilà qui est troublant. Surtout après les affaires Fillon et Le Roux qui ont émaillé la campagne présidentielle, et alors que le nouveau président Emmanuel Macron affirme vouloir moraliser la vie politique.

    As new technology allows us to feed a steady stream of news into our brains, are we gaining any real knowledge, or just entertaining ourselves with superficial matters?

    As Brian Maidment explained in a 2010 paper, that’s the question British elites asked in the early nineteenth century, when cheap magazines created a sudden glut of easily consumed information.

    Two aspects of these new magazines’ appeal will sound familiar to anyone who gets their news from a phone today: they used a small format that could fit into a reader’s pocket, and they relied heavily on pictures—in this case, wood engraved images. While cheap “pulp” newspapers weren’t around yet, this way of printing illustrations reduced the cost to bring eye-catching images to a relatively broad audience.

  • Le journalisme sacrifié La Brique - AF - 9 Mai 2017

    La Voix du Nord fait rarement sa Une sur les plans de licenciements ou alors pour critiquer les syndicats et les manifestant.es, créer des « casseurs » et sanctifier le patronat. Quand il s’agit de sa propre liquidation, c’est le vide sidéral. Pourtant un plan de licenciement concerne directement les 700 salarié.es du groupe VDN, 178 vont perdre leur emploi dont 55 journalistes. Pour la holding Rossel, propriétaire de dizaines de quotidiens, un journal se doit d’être rentable. Le combat des syndicats était-il perdu d’avance ?
     
    La Voix du Nord n’est qu’un des petits rouages de la grosse machine de presse du groupe Rossel. Ce consortium belge possède plus de 160 filiales, dont des dizaines de quotidiens régionaux belges et français parmi lesquels La Voix du Nord, Nord Éclair, La Meuse, L’Aisne nouvelle... En gros quasi toute l’information belge et les quotidiens du Nord-Pas de Calais-Picardie sont à leurs bottes. Le groupe possède aussi dans le Nord les quotidiens gratuits 20 minutes et Direct Matin, des radios (RTL Belgique), des chaînes de TV (Wéo, TV News) . Autant dire que si la famille Hurbain, à la tête de cet ensemble à 560 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires par an, ne veut pas qu’une info sorte, elle ne sera pas publiée.

    La Voix du Nord n’en est pas à son premier plan « social ». En 2000, le journal tombe partiellement entre les mains de Rossel. Une grève de dix jours est alors organisée mais la lutte ne payera pas. Dassault (2004-2005) rachète le titre puis le revend l’année suivante à Rossel. Le groupe fait fusionner les deux quotidiens La Voix du Nord et Nord Éclair et débarque les anciens dirigeants empêtrés dans les affaires de revente d’actions1. En 2008, le groupe VDN SA rachète Le Courrier Picard puis L’Union et L’Est Éclair en 2012. Début 2017, la direction annonce un plan de licenciement de 25 % des effectifs du journal, 170 personnes vont être virées.

    Alors que La Brique se paye le traitement journalistique de La Voix du Nord depuis sa création, Robert2, journaliste dans le quotidien depuis 20 ans, a pourtant accepté de répondre à nos questions.
