Four radical ways the media can protect US democracy from Trump

Four radical ways the media can protect US democracy from Trump

Illustration by Lulu Lin (for The Correspondent)Even this far into his term, it is still a bit of a shock to be reminded that the single most potent force for misinforming the US public is the current president of the United States. For three years this has been a massive – and unsolved – problem for the country and its political leadership. But now it is life and death. On everything that involves the coronavirus, Donald Trump’s public statementsOn top of that, the president is using the powers he won by election to destroy public confidence in the results of the next election. That’s why...

Jay Rosen: This is what a news organization built on reader trust looks like

Jay Rosen: This is what a news organization built on reader trust looks like

At the kind of journalism conferences that I attend, Aron Pilhofer, who had key roles in the digital operations of The New York Times and The Guardian in recent years, has been asking a very good question: What if news organizations optimized every part of the operation for trust? Not for speed, traffic, profits, headlines or prizes… but for trust. What would that even look like? My answer: It would look a lot like De Correspondent. Launched in 2013 in The Netherlands, De Correspondent is funded solely by its members: 56,000 of them, who pay about $63 a year because they believe in the...

Donald Trump is crashing the system. Journalists need to build a new one.

Donald Trump is crashing the system. Journalists need to build a new one.

Journalists commonly divide information from persuasion, as when they separate the “news” from the “opinion” section, or “reporters” from “columnists.” This is fine as far as it goes (and they get criticized harshly when they don’t honor this norm), but the distinction won’t help much in understanding why the 2016 campaign has been such an intellectual challenge for the media. Everything that happens in election coverage is premised on a kind of opinion: that our votes should be based on reliable information about what the candidates intend to do if elected. Remove that assumption and the...

The Christmas Eve Confessions of Chuck Todd

The Christmas Eve Confessions of Chuck Todd

That disinformation was going to overtake Republican politics was discoverable years before he says he discovered it. ‘Round midnight on Christmas eve, Rolling Stone posted a short interview with Chuck Todd, host of “the longest running show on television,” NBC’s Meet the Press. Its contents were explosive, embarrassing, enraging, and just plain weird. Three years after Kellyanne Conway introduced the doctrine of “alternative facts” on his own program, a light went on for Chuck Todd. Republican strategy, he now realized, was to make stuff up, spread it on social media, repeat it in your...
