Scott Rosenberg touched off a minor firestorm in the media-sphere with a post at Axios this week, in which the veteran technology writer argues that at least some of the enthusiasm with which media companies are covering Facebook’s trials and tribulations stems from their resentment over how the company has stolen their readers and advertising […]

How America's Largest Local TV Owner Turned Its News Anchors Into Soldiers In Trump's War On The Media

How America's Largest Local TV Owner Turned Its News Anchors Into Soldiers In Trump's War On The Media | media freedom and pluralism | Scoop.it
Earlier this month, CNN’s Brian Stelter broke the news that Sinclair Broadcast Group, owner or operator of nearly 200 television stations in the U.S., would be forcing its news anchors to record a promo about “the troubling trend of irresponsible, one sided news stories plaguing our country.” The script, which parrots Donald Trump’s oft-declarations of developments negative to his presidency as “fake news,” brought upheaval to newsrooms already dismayed with Sinclair’s consistent interference to bring right-wing propaganda to local television broadcasts.

Zenith: Online advertising will exceed 40 per cent of global adspend this year | News | FIPP.com | media freedom and pluralism | Scoop.it
We publish new advertising forecasts every three months at Zenith, each time canvassing the collective opinion of well over a hundred experts across the world. We revise often, but generally by small amounts. A big change in our forecasts is a sign that something dramatic is happening to the global ad market. That can be bad: a rapid drop in our forecasts in mid-2008 was the first sign of the huge ad recession that was to come in 2009. This month, though, we have better news to report.

Beware the Big Five | by Tamsin Shaw | media freedom and pluralism | Scoop.it
Only in recent months, with the news of the Russian hacks and trolls, have Americans begun to wonder whether the platforms they previously assumed to have facilitated free inquiry and communication are being used to manipulate them. The fact that Google, Facebook, and Twitter were successfully hijacked by Russian trolls and bots (fake accounts disguised as genuine users) to distribute disinformation intended to affect the US presidential election has finally raised questions in the public mind about whether these companies might compromise national security.
