Does data solve the crisis in legacy news companies? This article discusses data as a revenue model and the use of editorial algorithms to curate content and still meet public values. Furthermore, the article criticizes the news companies for using data in traditional advertisement revenue models, which have proved difficult to uphold.
Instead we need to focus on public values along with micro segment data in what are here termed social responsible algorithms. We also need to continue the discussion on the very concept of news and to experiment with news ‘packaging’ that are not derived from legacy news companies, but from born-digital ones.
