WikiTRIBUNE News Platform

WikiTRIBUNE News Platform
https://www.wikitribune.com/

WikiTribune is a news platform that is primarily about volunteers doing neutral, factual, high-quality news. The WikiTribune community strives to create articles with a very high degree of transparency and accountability. The most important thing to understand is that you can edit every story at WikiTribune. You’ll start out with a surprising amount of permission to edit things from day one. After you’ve been around a bit and shown yourself not to be disruptive, you’ll be promoted to being able to publish articles directly. And when the community really finds you genuinely trustworthy (and nice!) you can be promoted to admin. As you have fun with WikiTribune, you’ll likely run into staff members – who are here to support you, not to boss you. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

DeepNews.ai

DeepNews.ai
https://www.deepnews.ai/

A batch of stories will be submitted to the platform and they will be scored on a scale of 1 to 5 based on their journalistic quality. This process will be performed automatically and in real time. They define quality narrowly; in its simplest terms, they look for value-added journalism. This means coverage built on a genuine journalistic approach: depth of reporting, expertise, investigation, analysis, ethical processes, and resources deployed by the newsroom. The platform is based on a combination of two models. — The first model involves two sets of “signals” to assess the quality of journalistic work: Quantifiable Signals and Subjective Signals. Quantifiable Signals are collected automatically. These signals include the structure and patterns of the HTML page, advertising density, use of visual elements, bylines, word count, readability of the text, information density (number of quotes and named entities). Subjective Signals are based on criteria used by editors (and intuitively by readers) to assess the quality of a story: writing style, thoroughness, balance & fairness, timeliness, etc. (This set will be used only in the building phase of the model). The second model is based on deep learning techniques, like “text-embedding” in which texts from large volumes of data (millions of articles) are converted into numerical values to be fed into a neural network. This neural net returns probabilities of scoring. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Information Quality Resources Subject Tracer™.

Media Menipulation Initiative (MMI)

Media Menipulation Initiative (MMI)
https://datasociety.net/research/media-manipulation/

Efforts to exploit technical, social, economic and institutional configurations of media can catalyze social change, sow dissent, and challenge the stability of social institutions. The Media Manipulation Initiative (MMI) examines how different groups use the participatory culture of the internet to turn the strengths of a free society into vulnerabilities, ultimately threatening expressive freedoms and civil rights. Efforts to exploit technical, social, economic, and institutional configurations of media can catalyze social change, sow dissent, and challenge the stability of social institutions. Broadly, this initiative takes a sociotechnical approach to understanding the social, political, and economic incentives to game information systems, websites, platforms, and search engines—especially in cases where the attackers intend to destabilize democratic, social, and economic institutions. Through empirical research, they identify the unintended consequences of socio-technical systems and track attempts to locate and address threats, with an eye towards increasing organizational capacity across fields, so that action can be taken as problems emerge. From social movements, to political parties, governments, dissidents, and corporations, many groups engage in active efforts to shape media narratives. Media manipulation tactics include: planting and/or amplifying misinformation and disinformation using humans (troll armies, doxxing, and bounties) or digital tools (bots); targeting journalists or public figures for social engineering (psychological manipulation); gaming trending and ranking algorithms, and coordinating action across multiple user accounts to force topics, keywords, or questions into the public conversation. Because the internet is a tool, a tactic, and a territory – integral to challenging the relations of power– studying the new vulnerabilities of networked media is fundamental to the future of democracies.

Trusting News – RJU Research Project

Trusting News – RJU Research Project
https://www.rjionline.org/stories/series/trusting-news

How do people decide what news is trustworthy? How can journalists influence what users consume and share on social media? And in the era of fake stories, when untruths often travel faster than the truth, what can credible journalists do to stand out? When they began the Trusting News project in January 2016, they had no idea how the presidential campaign would evolve. They didn’t know the intentional spread of false information would play an even larger role in the information climate. They didn’t know Facebook’s algorithm would move toward favoring posts shared by individuals over those shared by pages, making it all the more important that news consumers help spread our content. They just knew the issue of reclaiming the credibility of journalism was worthy of focused attention. The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute engages media professionals, scholars and other citizens in programs aimed at strengthening journalism in the service of democracy. RJI generates and tests new techniques and new thinking that promise to improve journalism. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.
