- Business Insider 18:31November 21, 2019Publishers are reformatting content to be consumed more quickly as mobile dominates news consumptionThis story was delivered to Business Insider Intelligence Digital Media Briefing subscribers earlier this morning. To check to see if you already have access to Business Insider Intelligence through your company, click here. A new survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that nearly six in ten US adults (57%) often consume news on a mobile device, while only 30% often do so on a desktop or laptop computer. For context, the share of Americans who consume news on their phones often is now almost triple what it was in 2013 when the study was first conducted. Mobile news consumers favor content that captures attention quickly and is easy to digest, and publishers are accordingly reorienting around that. Attention on mobile devices is typically fragmented — consumers have a tendency to pull out their phones while standing in line, eating dinner, or watching TV.
To accommodate more sporadic usage patterns, many news publishers are reformatting their content to be quickly consumed during shorter windows. For example, the growth of newsletters is one of the most common trends in distributing more digestible news — about 42% of US digital news subscribers have used one or more email newsletter in the last week, according to the Reuters Institute for Journalism.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:These banks offer the most desirable mobile features across categoriesAmerican Express is sweetening its deals for merchantsThe FCC's public auction of C-band spectrum jeopardizes a major source of funding for satellite companies

- Business Insider 17:20November 21, 2019$100 MILLION CLUB: 7 Hollywood titans that Netflix, HBO, and others have signed 9-figure deals with during the battle for talentNetflix Companies are scooping up major Hollywood players in deals worth hundreds of millions of dollars to bolster their original streaming content.
Netflix landed "American Horror Story" creator Ryan Murphy in an estimated $300 million deal, while WarnerMedia attracted J.J. Abrams, who will create content for its streaming competitor HBO Max.
Former HBO CEO Richard Plepler is in talks to join Apple TV Plus, The Wall Street Journal first reported last week, which would give Apple's streaming efforts a big boost.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. From "Friends" (WarnerMedia's HBO Max) to "The Office" (NBCUniversal's Peacock) to "Seinfeld" (Netflix), companies are dropping huge sums of money on valuable assets to boost their streaming efforts.
But as the streaming war accelerates, it's not just nostalgic sitcoms attracting mega deals, but some of Hollywood's most high-profile producers and executives, as well.
The latest potential example is Richard Plepler, the former HBO CEO who is in talks to join Apple TV Plus, multiple outlets reported last week. A deal "could be finalized within the next few weeks," a person with knowledge of the talks told The Wall Street Journal, which was the first to report the news.
Apple is a newcomer to original TV and movies, so it will need someone with Plepler's experience if it wants to compete against the likes of Netflix and Disney, which debuted its own service, Disney Plus, last week and gained 10 million sign-ups a day after launching.
Netflix landed superstar producers Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes last year, and WarnerMedia nabbed J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company in September.
"The more crowded field has driven higher demand for content against a more limited supply of production and talent, resulting in cost inflation (particularly for marquee programs and show runners)," analysts at UBS wrote in a report distributed Tuesday.
Here's a rundown of the top mega-deals to happen as the streaming war has intensified:J.J. Abrams and Katie McGrath — HBO Max (WarnerMedia)
What they're known for: Bad Robot is the production company behind recent "Star Trek," "Mission: Impossible," and "Cloverfield" movies for Paramount Pictures
The husband-wife duo of "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" director Abrams and McGrath are co-CEOs of the production company Bad Robot.
WarnerMedia, which is launching the streaming service HBO Max next year, landed Abrams and McGrath in September in a five-year deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Variety reported the deal was worth $500 million, while The Hollywood Reporter reported that it was worth "more in the line of $250 million."
Bad Robot will develop movies and TV shows for WarnerMedia, including for HBO Max, but the company said it "will honor existing obligations to Paramount Pictures," where Abrams has produced "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible" movies.
Greg Berlanti — HBO Max (WarnerMedia)
What he's known for: "Arrow," "The Flash," "Supergirl," "Batwoman" (The CW)
Berlanti is best known for executive producing or creating the shows of The CW network's "Arrow-verse," which includes multiple DC superhero series. They will be crossing over this winter in a television event called "Crisis on Infinite Earths."
Berlanti signed a contract extension last year through 2024 with Warner Bros. Television worth $400 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Berlanti will produce two other DC shows for Warner Media's HBO Max: "Green Lantern" and "Strange Adventures."
Ryan Murphy — Netflix
Rich Polk/Getty Images
What he's known for: "Glee" (Fox), "American Horror Story," "American Crime Story," "Pose" (FX)
Murphy struck a five-year deal with Netflix last year worth as much as $300 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. At the Time 100 Summit in April, Murphy said that Netflix had greenlit 10 of his projects, including four TV shows, three movies, and three documentaries.
The first of his Netflix projects, the TV series "The Politician," debuted in September to terrible critic reviews and has a 56% on Rotten Tomatoes. But it has a more generous audience score of 85%.
Murphy's "Hollywood," a limited series starring Darren Criss, debuts in May. Murphy has called it a "love letter to the Golden Age of Tinseltown." He's also developing a "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" prequel series starring Sarah Paulson as the villainous Nurse Ratched.

For about 90 minutes, Lokteff and her guest – Greg Johnson, a prominent white nationalist and editor-in-chief of the white nationalist publisher Counter-Currents – discussed Johnson’s recent arrest in Norway amid authorities’ concerns about his past expression of “respect” for the far-right mass murderer Anders Breivik.In 2012, Johnson wrote that he was angered by Breivik’s crimes because he feared they would harm the cause of white nationalism but had discovered a “strange new respect” for him during his trial; Breivik’s murder of 77 people has been cited as an inspiration by the suspected Christchurch killer, the man who murdered the British MP Jo Cox, and a US coast guard officer accused of plotting a white nationalist terror attack.

- Business Insider 23:27November 20, 20196 times the US military totally screwed up on TwitterUS Strategic Command The military has codified the rules for managing these official accounts. But sometimes these social-media pros flub it.
The screw-ups range from the Pentagon's threat to bomb millenials converging near Area 51 to a "KnowYourMil" post about military systems that got it wrong. Every day, scores of US military commands reach millions with posts aimed to inform and inspire: videos of valor, motivational photos, and, yes, puppy pics.
The military has codified the rules for managing these official accounts. But sometimes these social-media pros flub it — even the four-star command responsible for the US's nuclear weapons.
Here's a blooper reel of some of the military's most embarrassing and dumb social-media mistakes since 2016.#KnowYourMil
Spc. Kyler Chatman/US Army
The Department of Defense's official twitter account shared this stunning image of an armored vehicle firing at a training exercise with the tag, #KnowYourMil.
The only problem — they named the wrong armored vehicle.
That's a Stryker armored vehicle firing its 105mm gun, not a Paladin self-propelled howitzer as the DoD tweet identified it. One easy way to tell them apart is that the Paladin is a tracked vehicle like a tank, unlike the eight wheels on a Stryker.
'The last thing #Millennials will see if they attempt the #area51 raid today'
U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Jordan Castelan
On Sept. 20, 2019, the Pentagon's Defense Visual Information Distribution Service (DVIDS) tweeted out a warning to millennials planning to attend the "Storm Area 51" event that day, suggesting it was going to bomb them.
"The last thing #Millennials will see if they attempt the #area51 raid today," the tweet read. The accompanying image was a B-2 Spirit bomber, a highly-capable stealth aircraft built to slip past enemy defenses and devastate targets with nuclear and conventional munitions.
The tweet prompted some backlash online, and the next day, DVIDS deleted the offending tweet and sent out a new one explaining that "last night, a DVIDSHUB employee posted a tweet that in NO WAY supports the stance of the Department of Defense."

'#Ready to drop something much, much bigger'
US Strategic Command
US Strategic Command, which oversees the US's nuclear arsenal, ringed in 2019 with a reminder that they're ready, at any time, to start a nuclear war.
Playing off the image of the ball dropping in New York City's Times Square, STRATCOM's official account posted a tweet that included a clip of a B-2 dropping bombs. The command apologized for the message.

Purchase this report.
To check to see if you already have access to Business Insider Intelligence through your company, click here. Content moderation has become a top priority for social platforms — including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn — amid rising public and political scrutiny and escalating content-related crises. Brands, lawmakers, and even social media execs are coming to grips with the reality that platforms are not up to the task of moderating content on their own, primarily due to their massive scale. The scale of the problem — and the difficulty of fixing it — roughly correlate with the scale of platforms themselves.
Even if 99% of harmful content is removed from a large platform, an enormous amount can still remain. Even leadership at social platforms believe their platforms should have oversight from external stakeholders, with some either publicly stating that belief or privately meeting with regulators. Tech execs including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey have each come out in support of new regulation around platform content.

But what sort of programme could they possibly be making?If you were born before the mid-1960s, one phrase will strike fear into your heart like no other. That phrase is ‘OK boomer’. For the uninitiated, ‘OK boomer’ has quickly become the defining meme of 2019; an offhanded putdown directed towards any older person with the temerity to tell a younger person how the world works, even though their understanding of how the world works was permanently paused in the late 90s. “You should get on the property ladder in your 20s like I did”. OK boomer. “Why don’t you save your money instead of buying a Pret sandwich every day?” OK boomer.You get it. And while it’s a terrific meme, you have to hand it to the executives at Fox television for realising that it will be an even better TV show. For Fox, no word of a lie, is attempting to trademark the phrase ‘OK boomer’ for entertainment purposes. Attorney Josh Gerben this week revealed that the network has made a trademark application for the term, claiming it has a ‘bona fide intent’ to launch a TV show of that name, ‘featuring reality competitions, comedy and game shows’.

- Business Insider 19:20November 19, 2019A social network for cancer patients is helping them connect without fear of friends pitying them for their diagnosisWar on Cancer War on Cancer is the social network for anyone affected by cancer — including people who have been diagnosed, their family, and their friends.
Founder Fabian Bolin had the idea of creating a storytelling platform for people with cancer when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May 2015, and realized the impact it had on his mental health.
He started up a blog to inform everyone of what he was going through, and knew he had to take it further when it grew to 200,000 monthly readers. War on Cancer, where users can share stories of treatments or simply post about their lives, now has around 3,000 users.
Regular social media can be filled with sympathy, Bolin said, and often cancer patients just want to do regular things like go for a beer. War on Cancer allows close ones to keep up with their loved ones' progress, while patients can connect with people going through the same thing.
"It's about time we normalize the situation, and think of [cancer] more as perhaps the biggest human connector, besides from all of us being human," Bolin said. "If everybody's connected to cancer, it's not just about the patients — it's about everybody."

"It felt like everything I had built up and worked for was gone," he told Insider. "My career, my future, my progress, everything was completely evaporated. And that made me so sad."See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Taylor Swift is the world's highest-paid celebrity.

- Business Insider 18:44November 19, 2019Teens are using TikTok as a new way to come out to friends and family, and it shows how vital the app is becoming to Gen Z's LGBTQ communityTikTok TikTok has turned itself into Generation Z's de facto launchpad for viral memes and internet trends in a space that brings together teens outside of adult supervision.
Because of this user make-up, TikTok has become a popular place among LGBTQ teens, many of whom are not out to friends and family but have found a community online where they can be out.
Some have used TikTok to aid with the coming out process itself, repurposing and remixing songs to capture the reactions of their loved ones on camera and share the results on the platform.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When Jenn Harding first understood she was catching more-than-platonic feelings for a girl, years had passed since it was instilled in her — for the first of many times in her small Michigan hometown — that homosexuality is a sin.
But Harding, 20, then discovered a community beyond her "super conservative Catholic family" on the video-sharing app TikTok. Harding told Business Insider that not only were teens like her out and proud on the platform, but they were fiercely supportive of each other in a way she had never seen before.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Inside the US government's top-secret bioweapons labSee Also:Teens love Apple's AirPods, and they're putting them on their holiday wish lists more than ever beforeInstagram was missing some of its most-loved features when it launched in 2010 — here's what it looked like back thenTikTok chief says political content is allowed on the viral video app as long as it's 'creative and joyful'SEE ALSO: The rise of Shane Dawson, the veteran YouTuber who's been embroiled in multiple controversies and is worth an estimated $12 million

- Business Insider 18:10November 19, 2019Twitter's political ad ban could catch some brands in crossfireThis story was delivered to Business Insider Intelligence Digital Media Briefing subscribers earlier this morning. To check to see if you already have access to Business Insider Intelligence through your company, click here. On Friday, Twitter detailed the first iteration of its updated political advertising policies following CEO Jack Dorsey's announcement the platform would be banning such content from the platform per TechCrunch. For context, while Twitter will no longer allow paid promotion on certain types of political ads — like those submitted by politicians — it will still allow paid promotion for certain issue advertisements, although with limited targeting options. Political candidates can still post ad-like content on the platform, they just can't pay to place it in front of more people than it would find organically.
For Twitter, reducing the reach of political and issue advertisements serves to distance them from accusations that they profit from controversial political posts and exchanges. But whether removing promotional options for political figures actually impacts user experience on the platform is less certain. Politicians and political groups will still be able to post misleading or harmful material on the site via normal tweets, which can reach people organically and still create a risk for the company's public perception as a result.

- Guardian 10:00November 19, 2019How the Ikea Christmas ad brought grime to the masses | Jeffrey BoakyeIt shouldn’t work, but it does, because grime MC D Double E breaks through the usual seasonal superficialityEverything you need to know about why Ikea’s Christmas ad is a big deal can be summarised in one word: grime. The Swedish furniture monolith has drawn on the genre that has given us Stormzy at Glastonbury, two Mercury music prize winners, #Alexfromglasto and a 21st-century cultural earthquake that continues to reverberate through the mainstream.The central conceit of the ad is simple: a modern (read: young, mixed-ethnicity, good-looking, inoffensive) family, sitting about in their home being modern, good-looking and generally inoffensive. The mum looks around and realises how shabby her surroundings are. Suddenly, all manner of kitsch and very un-Ikea ornaments come to life and start spitting bars about how clapped-out the flat is, in grime star D Double E’s unmistakable warbling couplets.
