Only by knowing more about customers can media companies hope to compete with Facebook in creating more relevant and personal experiences, which may eventually lead to revenue. This year, media companies will be investing heavily in data, segmentation and recommendation initiatives (61%) along with registration and sign-in drives (52%). Many publishers are unhappy with the amount of money they get from Facebook, especially with video monetisation yet to come on stream in a significant way. Access to customer data is also a big issue for some with at least one publisher withdrawing from Apple News. Reliable data is also a concern with Facebook having to apologise for overstating how much time, on average its users were spending watching videos. And then there are worries about ownership and attribution with some publishers unhappy that Google’s AMP shows their content framed with a Google url.

Bell describes how Narrative Science “turns data into stories of a type which will not be winning many Pulitzers”. The Los Angeles Times is not the only news outlet to publish stories written by robots. “Part of that is automated and part of that is human,” Welsh told, with a real reporter then expanding on the first line. Another source of data Los Angeles Times reporters receive is a daily email with a csv attachment detailing the arrests made by the famous LAPD the previous day. “Ken wrote the algorithm that sits on top of earthquake notifications,” Schwencke’s colleague Ben Welsh, a database producer at the Los Angeles Times, told “The structured data comes in and Ken has an algorithm that says if the earthquake is close to California and over a certain magnitude it is ‘news’.

Overall trust in news is low (39%) while CNN, which is owned by local conglomerate Trans Media, ranks the highest in brand trust at 69%. Interestingly, the news brand with greatest reach is also one of the brands with a large minority (12%) that say they do not trust it, which some may attribute to its more sensational style of reporting. Indonesia is 87% Muslim, and contains the world’s largest Muslim population, but Islam is not the state religion.

This is clearly a turning point for media and all eyes will be on how both publishers and platforms respond to this crisis of credibility. But part of the analysis also reminded us of the structural and economic backdrop; how hollowed out journalism has become, particularly outside metropolitan centres. A raft of initiatives over so called ‘fake news’ from both publishers and platforms fail to restore public trust.
