Investigative journalism and reporting are under threat. The future of journalism looks bleak without the reinforcement of the truth and the realignment of power and technology.
One of the largest negative impacts of technology is on the media. Facebook effectively controls public discourse on a global scale and is legally self-regulatory in service. How can the truth prevail if this is the baseline?
Julia Angwin joins Niko in this episode to discuss technology, data, and the impact of technology on society. Julia is incredibly impressive. She is a Pulitzer prize winner, winning investigative journalist, and the co-founder of The Markup, a nonprofit newsroom that investigates how powerful institutions are using technology to change our society.
They discuss why bringing precise facts to the debate rather than hot takes is necessary to bring powerful conglomerates to justice, how using scientific journalism is raising the stakes and the future of media and technology at large.
Technology has a bias that is used to the advantage of the elite. Julia and The Markup team are armed with a scientific approach and an open book policy on their data to help restore faith and support in investigative journalism.
