David Carr looks at the increasing link between web "clicks" and a reporter's value, and what that means for journalism. "Journalists who were paid to write when the muse or events beckoned, are now held accountable for the amount of work they produce and the volume of traffic it attracts." And it's not just digital start-ups counting clicks. At The Oregonian, the company "will require reporters to post new articles three times a day, and to post the first comment under any significant article.... Beyond that, reporters are expected to increase their average number of daily posts by 25 percent by the middle of the year and an additional 15 percent in the second half of the year. If that sounds like it won’t leave much time for serious work, the new initiative also calls for reporters to 'produce top-flight journalistic and digitally oriented enterprise as measured by two major projects a quarter,' which will include 'goals by projects on page views and engagement.'"
