Background[edit] Slate features regular and semi-regular columns such as Explainer, Moneybox, Spectator, Transport, and Dear Prudence. Many of the articles are short (under 2,000 words) and argument-driven. Around 2010, the magazine also began running long-form journalism. Many of the longer stories are an outgrowth of the "Fresca Fellowships", so-called because former editor Plotz liked the soft drink Fresca. "The idea is that every writer and editor on staff has to spend a month or six weeks a year not doing their regular job, but instead working on a long, ambitious project of some sort," Plotz said in an interview.[15] In 1998, Slate introduced a paywall-based business model that attracted up 20,000 subscribers but was abandoned afterwards.[16] A similar subscription model would later be implemented by Slate's independently owned competitor, Salon.com, in April 2001. On November 30, 2005, Slate started a daily feature ”Today's Pictures”, featuring fifteen to twenty photographs from the archive at Magnum Photos that share a common theme. The column also features two flash animated ”Interactive Essays” a month. The design of Slate's homepage from 2006 to 2013 In June 2006, on its tenth anniversary, Slate unveiled a redesigned website. In 2007, it introduced Slate V,[17] an online video magazine with content that relates to or expands upon their written articles. In 2013, the magazine was redesigned under the guidance of Design Director Vivian Selbo. In 2011, Slate was nominated for four digital National Magazine Awards and won the NMA for General Excellence. In the same year, the magazine laid off several high-profile journalists, including co-founder Jack Shafer and Timothy Noah (author of the Chatterbox column).[18] At the time, it had around 40 full-time editorial staff.[18] The following year, a dedicated ad sales team was created.[19] In 2012, Slate launched the "Slate Book Review", a monthly books section edited by Dan Kois.[20] In 2013, Slate became profitable after preceding years had seen layoffs and falling ad revenues.[9] In 2014, Slate introduced a paywall system called "Slate Plus" offering ad-free podcasts as well as some bonus materials. A year later, it had attracted 9,000 subscribers generating about $500,000 in annual revenue.[16] In June 2015, Slate started moving all content behind a metered paywall for international readers, explaining that "our U.S.-based sales team sells primarily to domestic advertisers, many of whom only want to reach a domestic audience. ...The end result is that, outside the United States, we are not covering our costs."[21] At the same time, it was stated that there were no plans for a domestic paywall.[10] Slate's articles have presented news and opinions from a liberal perspective, eventually evolving into a self-proclaimed liberal news site. However, the website claims that writers use factual evidence to back up their claims. Reputation for counterintuitive arguments ("Slate pitches")[edit] Since at least 2006,[13] Slate has been known for publishing contrarian pieces arguing against commonly held views about a subject, giving rise to the #slatepitches Twitter hashtag in 2009.[14] The Columbia Journalism Review has defined Slate pitches as "an idea that sounds wrong or counterintuitive proposed as though it were the tightest logic ever" and explained their success as follows: "Readers want to click on Slate Pitches because they want to know what a writer could possibly say that would support their logic".[22] In 2014, Slate's editor-in-chief Julia Turner acknowledged that a reputation for counterintuitive arguments forms part of Slate's "distinctive" brand, but argued that the hashtag misrepresents the site's journalism: "We are not looking to argue that up is down and black is white for the sake of being contrarian against all logic or intellectual rigor. But journalism is more interesting when it surprises you either with the conclusions that it reaches or the ways that it reaches them."[9]


Podcasts[edit] See also: Panoply Media According to NiemanLab, Slate has been involved in podcasts "almost from the very beginning" of the medium.[23] Their first podcast offering, released on July 15, 2005,[24] featured selected stories from the site read by Andy Bowers, who had joined Slate after leaving NPR in 2003.[23][25] By June 2012, Slate had expanded their lineup to nineteen podcasts, with Political Gabfest and Culture Gabfest being the most popular.[23] This count had shrunk to fourteen by February 2015, with all receiving six million downloads per month.[25] The podcasts are "a profitable part of [Slate's] business"; the magazine charges more for advertising in its podcasts than in any of its other content.[23] Amicus – legal commentary Audio Book Club Culture Gabfest Daily Podcast – some of everything DoubleX – women's issues Hang Up and Listen – sports Hit Parade - pop music history Lexicon Valley – language issues Manners for the Digital Age Mom and Dad Are Fighting – parenting Political Gabfest Spoiler Specials – film discussion The Gist Video Podcast Trumpcast Slate podcasts have gotten longer over the years. The original Gabfest ran fifteen minutes; by 2012, most ran about 45 minutes.[23]
