Semafor Readies Entry Into Tricky Digital News Market

From a New York Times story by Katie Robertson and Benjamin Mullin headlined “Semafor Readies Entry Into Tricky Digital News Market”:

News articles will be broken into sections distinguishing facts from opinion. Reporters’ bylines will be as prominent as headlines. And journalists will be permitted to offer their analysis on social media.

Justin Smith and Ben Smith surprised the media world early this year when they said they were leaving prominent jobs at Bloomberg Media and The New York Times to start a global news organization, Semafor. They said it would tackle the lack of trust in media and compete for English-language readers against outlets like CNN, The Times and The Washington Post.
