“What I think you’re seeing is a really rather small group of people but a very dominant and loud group of people dominating the narratives and shutting everyone else down because people are kind of scared.”

Role: Writer

The internet democratised the dissemination of information. From news to social discourse, anyone with access to the internet can broadcast their thoughts to the world.

With the growth of the internet and social media, the news business model entirely shifted. No longer could newspapers rely on physical sales. Instead, ad revenue and clicks became the meaningful metric.

Social media and clickbait articles, along with partisan organisations, have created a massively polarising media landscape. The news is now more politicised than ever.

This has led to social media becoming a feed of unverified news, and tech companies have taken it upon themselves to curate that news and decide what you should and shouldn’t see.

In this interview, I talk to freelance writer Katherine Brodsky. We discuss free speech and censorship, the politicisation of news and the problems with banning misinformation.
