Will news organizations have an incentive to disclose their true affiliations?

The greatest incentive is consumer demand. The sooner people start demanding more context, the sooner content providers will make changes to their product.

I can imagine making such changes would negatively affect a company’s business, leading them to misrepresent themselves. One idea to prevent this is to have a third party keep them in check. Although most user data is proprietary to the companies themselves, I think it is still possible to legally access metrics on viewership, possibly through search engines or marketing firms.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
