From The Conference September 07, 2018

“You don't really know who you are until you're forced to defend it.”

Journalism today is under a lot of pressure. At the same time, more and more hatred have grown on the internet over the past years. This has part to do with populism and other forces that are blatantly undermining the democracy. In her talk, based on years of research, Karin Pettersson examines how social media, Silicon Valley and different threats to democracy are interrelated. She states that the situation is complex, and that public discourses could be the survival of modern journalism.
