Techdirt Podcast Episode 303: The Facebook Papers & The Media

from the truth-and-coverage dept

The documents revealed by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen are full of important information — but the media hasn’t been doing the best job of covering that information and all its nuances. There are plenty of examples of reporters taking one aspect out of context and presenting it in the worst possible light, while ignoring the full picture. This week, we’re joined by law professor Kate Klonick to discuss the media’s failings in covering the Facebook Papers, and the unwanted outcomes this could produce.
