Making it better – public service media and the future of news

EBU News Report

EBU News Report

In November 2018 the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) published its News Report 2018, entitled: 50 ways to make it better. In the EBU press release it states that the report “highlights practical and concrete solutions and 50 real examples on building engagement and trust in public service journalism.”

Together with my Deutsche Welle colleague Wilfried Runde I was part of those who were interviewed by one of the report’s authors, Atte Jääskeläinen. We had been asked to talk about Truly Media, the collaborative verification platform we developed at DW Research & Cooperation Projects together with our Greek partner ATC – Athens Technology Center. And so we did!

The report is available to the public. However, in order to lay your hands onto it, you need to get an EBU account and log in accordingly to download the full paper. More here on the respective EBU page.
