Hey KF, just got your e-mail asking for comments on this draft report. Great start! However, there’s a glaring hole in your perspective — the role market structure and ownership & governance of news enterprises play in the quality of news. I think the breakdown in trust in news and also in society is simply that people have no say or stake in news enterprises and other institutions they depend on. Such institutions are increasing unresponsive, frequently out of touch, and sometimes downright exploitative (Facebook is a great example). Their incentives also drive them to do things which are corrosive to trust (like selling personal user data). The inconvenient truth is that the situation we’re in is the result of the current structure and the only way to create a better situation is to create a different structure — much less media concentration and more news cooperatives / reader supported news to start. That’s an inconvenient truth because this will be very difficult and will take a long time to do. You’re not going to fix this in 2018 or by 2020. There’s no short cut. There’s no piecemeal approach. Fundamental change is required. It’s a Herculean task that’s going to take decades and the odds are stacked against success. Are you and your stakeholders truly up for this challenge?
