[本網記者蘇樂恩11月13日訊] 當大眾埋怨八、九十後年輕人自顧沉迷上網,不理世事的時候,新聞行業早已順應著新一代觀眾群的習慣,靜靜起革命。網上新聞的興起雖然間接令某些印刷傳媒面臨倒閉的困境,卻也為年輕新聞從業員提供了網上媒體這個新出路,美國著名新聞網站赫芬頓郵報(Huffington Post)就是一例。

後起之秀揚言挑戰傳統名報地位

赫芬頓郵報的高級編輯Chris Anderson今午在樹仁大學周會中表示,作為新聞界的後起之秀,赫芬頓郵報比傳統大報紐約時報或華盛頓郵報優勝的地方是,編採人員與網絡技術人員的關係更緊密,因此它能比傳統報章的網上版更快地上載各種不同的嶄新內容。赫芬頓郵報雖然是一個只存在網上的新聞媒體,但該報的新聞從業員與傳統美國媒體在新聞上的品味似乎相距不遠。除了在網絡應用上的優勢,Anderson更提到他們的編輯團隊很希望在政治新聞上能達到與上述兩份傳統知名報章媲美的程度。Anderson表示,「我們一眾編輯非常、非常希望能製作比紐約時報及華盛頓郵報更高質素的政治新聞,放到我們的郵報上。」

互聯網如何改變傳媒生態

作為全球最知名的網上報章之一,赫芬頓郵報對編輯的工作熱情有很高的要求。Anderson表示,「當你成為了網上新聞編輯,你需要隨時隨地都在工作。」他說即使當科學怪風(Frankenstorm)珊迪吹襲紐約時,他仍要在位於紐約、隨時面臨斷電的家中不停工作,因為當時他正身處事發現場,網民一定對他的情況非常感興趣。Anderson更透露,作為網上報章的編輯,他每一個小時都要到各個社交網站更新自己的狀況,這樣不但能保持自己和報章在網上的知名度,更能從監察受眾的數據來調整報章未來的報導方向。


Huffington Post: The News Business for tomorrow

By Alice So


The addicted indulgence of the new generation on social media such as Facebook and Twitter has brought up the new trend of media development – online journalism. The rise of online media has lead to the collapse of some print media with a long history, but it also initiates the evolution of the journalism. The Huffington Post is one of the media in the new era of web 3.0.

How Huffington Post possibly beat New York Times

Chris C. Anderson, the Senior Editor of the Huffington Post has attended the General Assembly held in the Hong Kong Shue Yan University this afternoon. As a media company which is established in 2005, Chris claimed that the niche of the Huffington Post will be its speed and ability to work with their technology teams to put up creative content online, comparing to media with a long history, for example New York Times and the Washington Post. Besides that, “…(The New York Times and the Washington Post) they are both exceptionably good at politics, but we make our business to be better at politics than even they are. We have again, a group of editors that are really really hungry to put all this content out there.” Chris added.

How the internet influences media culture

As an editor of one of the most popular online media, “If you’re an online editor, you work everywhere, you work everywhere all day.” Chris said. He mentioned the situation while he needs to work at his home in New York when hurricane Sandy sweeps the town. “I still have to work 14 hours a day. With distractions such as my cat’s interruption and a tree falling down outside my home.” Chris said. Chris also mentioned that being an online editor, he has to work 24 hrs a day, not only to publish news online, but also promote his own work by any means in all sorts of social media. Chris mentioned Huffington Post editors have to be able to renew their twitter PER HOUR everyday in order to promote their own work. However, it seems that Chris enjoyed his job, “I am an internet addict anyway.” He said. --115109 2012年11月14日 (三) 00:21 (UTC)
