Episode Info

It's a World Cup Special this week! Well, Bex mentioned the world cup coverage at one point, so that's us doing our bit.

Apart from that, we looked at the reduction in people using social media for news, Facebook helping with blood donations, Google taking a stand on working with the military and presenting us with their principles when it comes to AI development.

 

What we talked about:

 

A reduction in the number of people using social for news, 6% in the US: https://reutersinstitute.politics.ox.ac.uk/sites/default/files/digital-news-report-2018.pdf

 

A shift in attitudes from the platforms to make changes based on ‘civic duty and fear of regulation’: https://www.cjr.org/tow_center_reports/the-platform-press-at-the-heart-of-journalism.php/
