Over the past year, the researchers at Data & Society has looked into a range of cross-cutting issues affecting journalism right now. They’ve discussed media manipulation and journalism’s role in amplifying bad actors; solutions for addressing fake news; and the media’s responsibility for handling high-profile suicides or other crisis events. Founder of Data & Society, danah boyd, kicks off ONA18 by providing a strategic look at the media landscape, as well as where we might start addressing these sticky challenges.
