The rebirth of longform journalism

Politico’s new longform editor Susan Glasser and guest host Frank Sesno discuss a resurgence of what was once considered a dying trade – the 5000+ word news article.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the issue is one thing that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I'm very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing relating to this.

    I have discovered that expenses for internet degree specialists tend to be a great value. Like a full 4-year college Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits with $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online provides a Bachelors of Business Administration with a overall school feature of 180 units and a price of $30,560. Online studying has made taking your education been so detailed more than before because you may earn the degree from the comfort of your abode and when you finish working. Thanks for all other tips I've learned through the site.

    Here is two ideas for how Politico could get more revenue from their long form journalism.
    Their website should be programmed so it will remember every article that a reader printed or emailed so their readers could buy an ebook or a print on demand paperback book filled with information that their readers decided was important enough to print or email. I think most readers would enjoy be giving the chance to become an editor of a book that they thought was a great book. But the extra revenue from the ebooks or paperback books would be less important than how readers will be stimulated to go to their website more often so they can add more chapters to their ebook.
    Their website should also get the software used by a journalism website (Fair dot org) that enables a pop-up to immediately appear when a reader moves his mouse over a headline. The pop-ups at Fair dot org only display a single one or two sentence paragraph of the article. But the pop-ups for the long form journalism journalism should display at least five or six paragraphs so people will be more likely to click on the headline and read the entire article.
    But my ideas will never be implemented because journalists are too narcissistic to listen to advice from something who doesn't have as much prestige as a journalist.
