Stop the Presses?

Joan Donovan, danah boyd

In this journal article, Data & Society Affiliate Joan Donovan and Founder and President danah boyd take a historical look at the news media ecosystem and the deployment of strategic silence, and then conceptualize a new approach—”strategic amplification.”

“Drawing on the history of strategic silence, we argue for a new editorial approach—’strategic amplification’—which requires both news media organizations and platform companies to develop and employ best practices for ensuring responsibility and accountability when producing news content and the algorithmic systems that help spread it.”
