"Recognizing that much misinformation is neither surprising nor novel may be demoralizing in a sense, but it might light the way to a more proactive approach. And maybe, just maybe, that will make the future less depressingly predictable" @holden writes https://t.co/UookEQhJvG

"As computational techniques become more widespread" @JuliaAngwin writes, "there is a new genre of journalism emerging: the journalistic white paper." It is "a sign of how newsrooms are going to have to work harder to defend our work to our audiences." https://t.co/PISbes6jCg

I’ve seen more stories giving a platform to Capitol insurrectionists to air white grievances than the Flint mothers who still cannot bathe their children seven yrs after the crisis began. “If Flint was a white suburb, the cameras would have never left,” a Black mother told me.
