The Broken News Media Economy
The role of the rise of Facebook and Google in the downfall of journalism, nd the weakening of democracies around the world is now well understood. In March 2016 Emily Bell, Director at the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia Journalism School delivered a speech with the title, “The End of the News as We Know It: How Facebook Swallowed Journalism”.
Emily’s words rang clear and were widely reported. In the 20 months since her verdict on the fate of journalism was delivered, her idea has dug in.
The news media economy, a vital instrument in the flow of unbiased and useful information about our world, has become completely dependent on Facebook and Google for its survival. And the industry appears to be helpless to respond. In the 2016 Presidential election shameless propaganda peddled by script kiddies in Macedonia took center stage.
