Just 1 in 10 TV newsrooms have beat-based reporters - Key to better TV news?

TV News Check :: The beat system, under which reporters cover their beats — and only their beats — hasn’t existed in many TV newsrooms for years. And some believe that it's contributed to a decline in the quality of local TV news. Although the new economic realities of the business make the widespread return of full-fledged beat reporters unlikely, some are trying to bring them back in different and limited ways.

[Jerry Gumbert, CEO of AR&D:]  News leaders have to realign priorities and reinstitute beat systems ... if broadcast journalism is going to survive. Otherwise, TV newscasts will become increasingly indistinguishable from one another — a phenomenon already underway — as they become outlets for regurgitated or old news, he says.

LG GW990 – The Smart Phone to Beat

This is a really exciting time for the smart phone market with so many surprising new launches. Thereâ??s Google introducing the Nexus One to the public, with the aim of finally taking down the iPhone. And now, the South Korean electronics giant LG has unveiled its latest, greatest mobile phone today â?? the LG GW990. This mobile phone definitely takes the term super phone to a whole different level.

Youâ??ll love the appearance of this phone

For most people, the first thing they consider when buying a mobile phone is the appearance. This is first in their order of priorities, even before checking out the specifications or features or other applications. In this regard, LG does not disappoint with its sleek, black design following the usual candy bar form.

Donâ??t think that the minimalist appearance of this mobile phone would not make it stand out though. After all, how many phones do you know which features a massive screen display of 4.8 inches? The touch screen on this phone is even bigger than the Nexus One and the iPhone. So if youâ??re the type who loves watching video clips or even movies on your mobile phone, then youâ??ll love this particular handset. Whatâ??s even greater is that the colour TFT touch screen boasts of a resolution of 1020 x 480 pixels, which is the best in the market today.

Youâ??ll love the specifications of this phone

However, the list of things youâ??ll love about this phone does not stop there. If you take the time to learn the specifications of this phone, youâ??ll surely be impressed. After all, the LG GW990 is powered by the widely popular Moorestown processor from Intel. This is the more energy efficient version of the Atom processor, which is used to power mini laptops and net books.

Although there is no official word yet as to the clock speed of the Moorestown, it is sure to be at the very least clocking in at 1 Ghz so that it can match Qualcommâ??s Snapdragon, which is the processor used in the Nexus One. The great thing about the Moorestown is that it promises to consume 10 times less energy than other Atom processors, so you can be sure that your battery (Li-Ion 1850 mAh) will last a lot longer than you would normally expect.

Youâ??ll love the features of this phone.

This mobile phone runs a new version of the Linux-based Moblin operating system, although the OS looks a bit similar to the S-Class UI of LG. However, what makes it really stand out in the crowd is its ability to open multiple windows or different applications all at the same time. During the CES show, where it was first introduced to the public, the representative of LG opened and used three different applications simultaneously without the mobile phone slowing down or anything.

This really impressed the audience, because it shows the superiority of the CPU. This ability to open different windows at the same time makes it ideal for multi taskers who love reading their emails while playing a 3D game, or calculating the amount of a meal while browsing through their image gallery.
