News Corp CEO rails at 'dysfunctional' online environment 9.2.2018 General News
News Corp's chief executive today took a swipe at Google and Facebook for fostering a "dysfunctional" and "debased" online environment which harms the news media and responsible journalism. Robert Thompson, CEO of the publishing arm of Rupert Murdoch's media empire, stepped up his criticism of the online giants as the company released its quarterly earnings. Thompson said the steps announced by Google and Facebook to stem misinformation and improve the quality of online news were "modest steps toward changing a digital environment that is dysfunctional at its core." "The bot-infested badlands are hardly a safe space for advertisers, whose brands are being tainted by association with the extreme, the violent and the repulsive." Thompson said News Corp is seeing growth in online visits and subscriptions to its media properties such as the Wall Street Journal and The Sun of Britain, but added that "the potential returns for our journalism would be far higher in a less ...

Philippine news website's licence revoked after Duterte threat 15.1.2018 General News
The Philippine government has revoked the operating licence of leading news website Rappler, officials said today in a ruling denounced by President Rodrigo Duterte's critics as another blow to press freedom. Rappler, set up in 2012, is among a clutch of Philippine news organisations that have sparred with Duterte over their critical coverage of his brutal drugs war. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) said it had revoked the incorporation certificates of Rappler and Rappler Holdings Corp because they violated a provision in the Philippine constitution reserving media ownership to Filipinos. "(Both are) existing for no other purpose than to effect a deceptive scheme to circumvent the constitution," the agency said in a January 11 ruling posted on its website today. Rappler's acting managing editor Chay Hofilena told AFP the company would file a court appeal against the ruling, which is due to take effect in 15 days. "This is pure and simple harassment, the ...
