News & Information
We strive toward societies where all people have access to trustworthy information and reliable news sources. Where a free press thrives and information is not a weapon but a tool for civic engagement. Where the narratives equitably include and represent the voices of traditionally marginalized communities. With this world vision, we work across:
- News at the Speed of the Internet – Longstanding journalistic practices and norms have been upended by a fast-changing information ecosystem, which now includes social media feeds, bot networks, manipulation campaigns, and an altered political landscape. We host private workshops among journalists, ethicists, First Amendment attorneys, and academics for frank, off-the-record conversation. This has included helping to prepare all major newsrooms and tech platforms for a contested US election and the COVID-19 vaccine rollout process.
- Sustainable Quality Journalism & Press Freedom – Through public and private programming, we shine a light on the risks posed to a free and sustainable press, the importance of quality reporting to common knowledge, and the role of news media in a democracy. As part of this work, we are a supporting member of the Washington Post Press Freedom Partnership.
