IN THE NEWS

“Problematic news consumption” has been linked to poor mental and physical health. In a study published by Health Communication, scholars said, “What may have begun as an effort to monitor disconcerting events and remain apprised of potential threats develops over time into a maladaptive relationship with the news.” Being a news junkie isn’t the issue, they clarify. “It is not the amount of news that one consumes that is problematic so much as the nature in which it is consumed,” notes the report. Problematic behavior includes “attempting to alleviate feelings of threat by consuming more news, experiencing a loss of control over consumption of the news and experiencing diminished time for and attention to other aspects of one’s life.”

Is Homer Simpson the best weapon against fake news? Researchers from Google found that showing people short animated videos on how to identify misinformation helped inoculate them against manipulative language, scapegoating and more manipulation techniques. Groups that were shown “pre-bunking” – versus “de-bunking” – videos, some using characters from “The Simpsons,” “South Park” and “Family Guy,” were more likely than others to identify videos that contained untrustworthy content.

Video length matters, according to a study from OMD Worldwide, Yahoo and Amplified Intelligence, “Attention in Context,” that explores the dynamics of slower-scroll, highly immersive environments for driving attention in mobile advertising. Active attention decreases as video length increases, with 30-second videos delivering only 1.2 seconds of active attention, while 15-second spots yielded 3.3 seconds. Other key findings include:
· Surrounding content can play a role in driving higher attention. Looking at the role of context, Yahoo’s sports and finance content delivered the greatest level of attention for both category endemic and non-endemic Interscroller ads.
· Attention can be garnered at any time. The study found that there is no “golden hour” or day for active attention, which the study showed to be consistent across all dayparts and days of the week.
· Attention increases with age but ad length and format still matter. Attention levels increase with age, with Gen Z showing significantly lower levels of both active and passive attention than Boomers. Format preferences also vary by age, with Boomers responding best to Interscroller ads, and Gen Xers leaning into video.
· Gender is not a differentiator, as revealed by consistent levels of active and passive attention between those respondents who identify as either male or female. Active attention (average 1.6 seconds) and passive attention (average 9.1) was identical for both groups.
“This study shows just how nuanced consumer attention really is,” said Elizabeth Herbst-Brady, Head of Global Revenue & Client Solutions at Yahoo. “The sweet spot is in combining the right formats in the right environment and context relevant to each audience. With this research, we’re understanding more about consumers as behavior evolves, and are able to deliver more engaging experiences.”

Don’t blame new showrunner David Graziano for Kelli Giddish’s exit from “Law & Order: SVU” after 12 seasons. “You might take a moment to entertain the idea that things are more complex than they appear in a world of emojis and tweets,” Graziano wrote on Giddish’s Instagram page, addressing fans upset by her departure. “All I’ll say is Kelli has handled this with the most incredibly classy comportment. She is, without a doubt, one of the finest industry professionals I’ve come across in my 24 years of writing for television. I’m saddened by her looming exit. It’ll be my lucky day if I ever get to write for her again.”

In an open letter on Twitter, “Batgirl” actress Ivory Aquino – whose Alysia Yeoh would have been the first major trans character in a DC Comics film – asked Warner Bros. Discovery President and CEO David Zaslav to reconsider shelving the superhero movie. “We’ve been fortunate to have such amazing supporters since the beginning, from Glasgow where we filmed and from all over the world,” wrote Aquino. “Now, more people know about our labor of love and are eager to see the movie. I do hope you get to read this letter. Consider releasing ‘Batgirl.’ She’s always been an underdog and has nowhere to go but up.”

Canceling the release of “Batgirl” was one belt-tightening measure at Warner Bros. Discovery post-merger. Layoffs are another, with Variety reporting 29 people in Europe are expected to lose their jobs over the next 15 months, as HBO Max shifts its programming model. Execs exiting the company include Jonathan Young, VP Original Programming and Production for EMEA; Christian Wikander, VP and Commissioning Editor of Original Programming, Nordics; and Annelies Sitvast, Head of Unscripted Original Production.

Warner Bros. Discovery has also delayed the theatrical releases of two DC Extended Universe franchise films, spreading out the cost of pricey marketing campaigns. The release of “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” has moved from December 21 to March 17, 2023, and” Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” will debut December 25, 2023 instead of March 17.

NBCUniversal Local, Greater Good Charities, The Animal Rescue Site and Hill’s Pet Nutrition are partnering on a second pet airlift as part of NBC and Telemundo stations’ 2022 Clear The Shelters pet adoption and donation campaign on August 30. The flight will transport more than 140 at-risk dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters.

Ninety-percent of purported iCloud private relay traffic may be invalid, according to a study conducted by Pixalate. Key takeaways from the report include:
· iCloud Private Relay traffic appears to be associated with around 21% of the traffic purported to come from Apple Devices on both mobile and desktop Safari. However, there appear to be discrepancies in most of the traffic that are not in line with Apple’s description of the expected behavior. Almost all of such traffic appears to be invalid.
· Only around 1%-2% of traffic from purported Apple devices was detected as originating from an iCloud Private Relay IP and exhibiting the expected behavior of devices behind iCloud Private Relay, hinting at the actual adoption rate of the service.
· The cases where an iCloud Private Relay IP address is referenced is increasing. This number has doubled over the past 6 months (from about 10% to now about 20%). Most of this increase is due to the seemingly spoofed traffic, while the percentage of detected iCloud Relay traffic has remained relatively constant.
