The post is by The Guardian, but the story is originally from Willamette Weekly:

A US newspaper has told its reporters that their annual bonuses will depend on the number of online stories they file.

The Oregonian, the paper distributed in Portland, Oregon, has demanded that journalists post new articles three times a day, according to internal documents revealed by Willamette Week.

Reporters are also expected to increase their average number of daily posts by 25% by the middle of the year and an extra 15% during the second half of the year.

They are also being required to post the first comment under any significant article on the website,, in order to stimulate online conversations among readers.

This new reporting regime is being imposed by the paper's owners, Advance Publications, which is based in Staten Island and owns a galaxy of newspapers, magazines, and journals. Shit is getting neoliberal/real.
