  • The lowest form of popular culture - lack of information, misinformation, and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people's lives - has overrun real journalism. Today, ordinary Americans are being stuffed with garbage.

Guardian Social Media




linedividerThe Guardian, known until 1959 as The Manchester Guardian, is a British national daily newspaper. Currently edited by Alan Rusbridger, it has grown from a 19th-century local paper to a national paper associated with a complex organisational structure and international multimedia and web presence. Its sister papers include The Observer (British Sunday paper) and The Guardian Weekly.

Founded in 1821 by John Edward Taylor in Manchester, the Guardian has changed format and design over the years, moving from broadsheet to Berliner. It has become an international media organisation with affiliations to other national papers with similar aims. The Guardian Weekly, which circulates worldwide, contains articles from The Guardian and its sister Sunday paper The Observer, as well as reports, features, and book reviews from The Washington Post and articles translated from Le Monde. Other projects include Guardian Film, the current editorial director of which is Maggie O’Kane.

Recent notable scoops include the newspaper’s breaking of the News International phone hacking scandal in 2011, particularly with the revelation of the hacking of murdered teenager Milly Dowler’s phone. The investigation brought about the closure of one of the highest circulation newspapers in the world, the News of the World. The newspaper also broke news of the secret collection of Verizon telephone records held by Barack Obama’s administration in June 2013, and subsequently revealed the existence of the PRISM surveillance program after it was leaked to the paper by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

In June 2013 The Guardian in paper form had an average daily circulation of 197,000, behind The Daily Telegraph and The Times, but ahead of The Independent. The newspaper’s online offering was the third most widely read in the world as of June 2012. Its combined print and online editions reach nearly 9 million readers.

linedividerGuardian unveils WordPress plugin for bloggers

theguardian.com, Friday 2 July 2010 10.41 BST

Guardian News & Media (GNM) today unveils a brand new WordPress plugin, which will enable millions of bloggers across the globe to publish content from guardian.co.uk on their own sites free of charge.

The Guardian news feed plugin, which has been developed using GNM’s award-winning Open Platform, is the first full article news feed plugin ever released by a major publisher.

Matt McAlister, Head of the Guardian Development Network, said: “Last month we announced that the Guardian Open Platform is officially open for business, and the WordPress plugin is a fantastic example of just one way we are reinforcing our leading position as an innovator in digital technology.

“Bloggers will be able to browse through our articles on the WordPress platform, choosing which articles they wish to publish on their blogs. We will embed ads within the articles in order to build a global ad network for the Guardian, yet the bloggers will be able to keep any associated revenue that they earn on their own sites.”

Matt Mullenweg, the co-founder of WordPress, said, “I’m excited to see more major news organisations like the Guardian getting involved with Open Source development.”

Notes to editors

To get the plugin, WordPress bloggers first need to register for the Guardian Open Platform, agree to the Terms and Conditions and obtain an API key. They will then be able to obtain the Guardian News Feed plugin from the WordPress plugin directory.

The Guardian Open Platform launched last year as a beta service, and GNM became the first newspaper publisher to open up its database to partners, allowing them to select and collect content for re-use on their own websites. Since then, over 2,000 developers have registered, and over 200 apps, products and data visualisations are now live using the Open Platform.

The Guardian Open Platform won the launch award at the AOP Awards 2010.
