Jeff Jarvis Wants to Remix News War

Jeff Jarvis continues the war over Frontline’s News War with a cheeky suggestion:

But what would be truly innovative would be to make all their footage available– something I challenged to do when I was intereviewed–so we can remix it and show them the different story that exists right under their nose.

FBLA loves this idea. We’d reloop Dean Baquet’s SOTs under Amanda Congdon.

News War: The LA Times vs. Tribune and Readers Lose

KCET broadcast Frontline’s series News War last night, as counter programming for American Idol, never guessing that someone could actually want to watch both. This episode, What’s Happening to the News, which examimes the struggles of the LA Times, will repeat this Friday and the website has the whole series.

The producers interviewed all the right people for the series, and all but five of them are men.

In this episode, Amanda Congdon is presented twice–once in her Rocketboom days, and now as the fresh new face on ABC.com. She even gets an extended section on the website–the only woman with such a segment. (Maybe she’s supposed to help David Westin get a reasonable return.) Other than a woman in the LAT’s Baghdad bureau (in a burkha!) and Lauren Rich Fine from Merrill Lynch, women aren’t talking about the news business. And judging by the credits, women aren’t working in it either, at least not on this episode. (The first two episodes were written, produced, and directed by Raney Aronson-Rath.)

Bill Keller just says, “Stay tuned. I didn’t want him to go in the first place.”

Of course, all this is being reported on blogs, of which Keller says: “I’ve dialed back on my consumption” and “distinguish between the serious stuff and the not-serious stuff. I don’t let it get to me.”

So, there’s that.
