Scrisoare deschisă către presa română

Un “memo” de dimineaţă al unui redactor-şef american disperat care ne priveşte (şi) pe noi. Deşi la noi s-ar putea să fie seară :D.

E ca în celebrul banc: nu e scrisoare deschisă, ci e o comunicare internă, nu e către presa română, ci către reporterii de la “The Daily“, primul cotidian care apare pe formatul revoluţionar al tabletei digitale. Şi nu e semnată de mine, desigur, ci de Jesse Angelo, redactorul-şef al publicaţiei americane.

Jesse rezumă în trei paragrafe ceea ce orice redactor-şef din România ar trebui să le spună – şi mulţi dintre ei chiar o fac -, zi de zi, oamenilor lui: un articol care nu e exclusiv e, pur şi simplu, un articol slab.

Subject: The News

Folks, Egypt is over – time for us to get focused on covering America.

We need to get out there and start finding more compelling stories from around the country – not just scraping the web and the wires, but getting out on the ground and reporting. Find me an amazing human story at a trial the rest of the media is missing. Find me a school district where the battle over reform is being fought and tell the human tales. Find a town that is going to be unincorporated because it’s broke. Find me a story of corruption and malfeasance in a state capitol that no one has found. Find me something new, different, exclusive and awesome. Find me the oldest dog in America, or the richest man in South Dakota. Force the new White House press secretary to download The Daily for the first time because everyone at the gaggle is asking about a story we broke. Get in front of a story and make it ours – force the rest of the media to follow us.

It’s good stories that will keep people coming back to The Daily – we’ve assembled a crack news team, so let’s show the world what we can do.
