Beast's Avlon: Influence Matters More Than Scale For Its Own Sake

"News needs to do two things right now," Daily Beast Editor-in-Chief John Avlon declared at the Publishing Insider Summit earlier this month. "We need to call bullshit. And we need to make important stories interesting." And Publishers need to eschew clickbait, easy growth and recognize that "influence matters more than scale for its own sake." Fighting fake news and committing to core journalistic values can and should also be good business, he argued.
