Power is everywhere – how stakeholder media build the future of watchdog news.
Zusammen mit Mark Lee Hunter
While mainstream media decline, media controlled by stakeholder groups, like Greenpeace.org and Breitbart.com, continue to proliferate and grow. In this session we consider these „stakeholder-driven media‘ (SDM) as a way for journalists to do valuable, sustained work in the service of a community of interest. The value proposition of SDM centers on protecting a community through actionable information, while helping it to prevail over threats and adversaries. SDM are thus particularly useful vehicles for reporters who want to do investigative work. Their ethics and focus are different from mainstream media, but they can also create great social value and influence. The session will be based on the free e-book, „Power is Everywhere: How stakeholder-driven media build the future of watchdog news“, and led by co-authors Mark Lee Hunter (Story-Based Inquiry Associates) and Maria Besiou (Kuhne Logistics University).
