All the News That's Fit to Click: How Metrics Are Transforming the Work of Journalists

All the News That's Fit to Click: How Metrics Are Transforming the Work of Journalists

Author: Caitlin Petre Narrator: Eva Wilhelm Release Date: 01/09/2021

Journalists today are inundated with data about which stories attract the most clicks, likes, comments, and shares. These metrics influence what stories are written, how news is promoted, and even which journalists get hired and fired. Do metrics make journalists more accountable to the public? Or are these data tools the contemporary equivalent of a stopwatch wielded by a factory boss, worsening newsroom working conditions and journalism quality? Caitlin Petre takes listeners behind the scenes at the New York Times, Gawker, and the prominent news analytics company Chartbeat to explore how performance metrics are transforming the work of journalism. Petre describes how digital metrics are a powerful but insidious new form of managerial surveillance and discipline. Real-time analytics tools are designed to win the trust and loyalty of wary journalists by mimicking key features of addictive games, including immersive displays, instant feedback, and constantly updated 'scores' and rankings. Many journalists get hooked on metrics and pressure themselves to work ever harder. Yet this is not a simple story of managerial domination. Contrary to the typical perception of metrics as inevitably disempowering, Petre shows how journalists leverage metrics to their advantage, using them to advocate for their professional worth and autonomy.
