mediawiremorningGood morning. Here are 10 media stories.

  1. Nobody trusts BuzzFeed much: Pew's new report on Political Polarization & Media Habits says "There is little overlap in the news sources" conservatives and liberals "turn to and trust." The Wall Street Journal is trusted across ideological boundaries, and the BBC and The Economist do well among all but the most consistent conservatives, who say they equally trust and distrust those outlets. Only one publication is rated "More distrusted than trusted" regardless of respondents' political outlook: BuzzFeed. It's important to note, though, that fewer than 40 percent of respondents had heard of BuzzFeed. (Pew) | BuzzFeed EIC Ben Smith emails: "Most of the great news organizations have been around for decades, and trust is something you earn over time. Our organization is new, our news operation is even newer, and it’s early days for us. The more people know BuzzFeed News, especially young people who make up a small share of these surveys, the more they trust us." | Brian Stelter: "Among other things, the study underscores Fox's unique position in the media marketplace, thanks to what it calls the 'strong allegiance' that conservatives have to Fox." (CNN)

  2. Jill Abramson plans a startup with Steve Brill: Investors “sound very interested.” (The Wrap) | "Abramson and Carr now discussing their teenage pot smoking habits. Jill smoked by a fountain. David liked to play frisbee." (@ylichterman)
  3. The Guardian committed no foul by reporting on Whisper: A ruling from Ryan Chittum. "It would have been a journalistic lapse for the paper not to have told readers what it had learned." (CJR)
  4. How Gamergate intimidates publications: The loose collective of shrill gaming "advocates" has a five-step plan for flooding advertisers' inboxes about reporters it doesn't like. And the attacks can work. (WP) | "The D-List Right-Wingers Who've Turned Gamergate Into Their Loser Army" (Gawker)
  5. What happened between the NABJ and CNN? NABJ President Bob Butler says the network bailed on supporting NABJ's 2015 convention, and CNN says it was merely "reconsidering our relationship." The dustup lays bare a "core conflict in what NABJ — and other journalism-diversity groups, for that matter — does from day to day," Erik Wemple writes. "On the one hand, it monitors how well newsrooms embrace diversity; on the other, it pitches those same newsrooms to ante up for convention space and other stuff." (WP)
