Julia Angwin on story-level trust

My feeling is we have to bring the level of truth down from the institution level to the story level.

Julia Angwin, editor of Proof News, in an interview with The Journalists’ Resource (from the Harvard Kennedy School’s j-school). Here she is talking about how reporters, as they become competitors with AI models, must spend more time explaining their process in each and every story. It is no longer enough to assume readers implicitly trust a news organisation to come to the correct conclusions on any given topic. The full conversation, in which Angwin expands on her broader thoughts on how AI can be used in journalism, is worth a read.
