How News Makes The Front Page…

Great read from OJR.

Balancing Act: How News Portals Serve Up Political Stories
Google News uses computer algorithms to identify top stories while Yahoo News favors old-fashioned human editors. But do Google’s automated search results display a conservative bias?

This is the same debate raging in media measurement circles – to read or not to read. Our audiences are increasingly using Google as the news filter. My home page is set to Google’s NZ page. If heuristics and algorithms increasingly govern what we read they will effectively edge out editorial layout, bias to big media and the time constraints we all face. The upside being a richer, but not necessarily higher-quality, view of the world.
