The issue of news organizations leaving Twitter and moving away from social media dependency guided the conversation with panelists on the second day of the 2023 International Symposium on Online Journalism (ISOJ). The panel discussed text messages, push alerts, newsletters and podcasts as individualized ways to reach audiences outside social media.
Glenn Kessler, chief fact checker at the Washington Post, Khaya Himmelman, a political misinformation reporter, Bill Adair, the founder of PolitiFact and Sérgio Dávila, editor-in-chief of Brazillian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo spoke on a panel about fact checking and misinformation in hyperpolarized times moderated by Anya Schiffrin of Columbia University.
Instead of worrying of being replaced by AI generative tools such as ChatGPT, journalists should be experimenting and exploring what that technology enables them to do better in their jobs, said AI experts during the panel “How can journalism incorporate AI, including generative tools like ChatGPT and Bard, to improve production and distribution of news?”, on the first day of ISOJ 2023.
