USE YOUR VOICE

Do what journalists do best by writing and reporting on big tech’s dominance in the digital space. From their impact on local news and journalism to their growing stranglehold on the digital advertising market to their monopolistic control over our online activity and data, tech goliaths are at the center of today’s most pressing digital dramas. It’s time for readers — and your fellow journalists — to know the facts. Here are a few ways you can get to work:

1.

WRITE AN OPINION PIECE OR LETTER TO THE EDITOR.

Are you a journalist who’s been laid off due to big tech’s chokehold on the industry? Are you an industry expert who knows the relationship between news publishers, digital advertising, and Facebook/Google’s duopoly? Are you a concerned resident who wants to help protect your local paper? Put your fingers to the keyboard and start typing. Then, submit the piece to your local paper.

2.

SAVE YOUR EDITORIAL SPACE FOR #SAVEJOURNALISM CONTENT.

Are you a local newspaper that’s being pushed out of the community because of big tech? Are you a news publisher that’s experiencing the consequences of big tech’s dominance of advertising and news curating? Reserve editorial space in your opinion or letter to the editor sections for articles that relate to #SaveJournalism.

3.

INTEGRATE #SAVEJOURNALISM CONTENT INTO YOUR ORGANIZATION'S NEWSLETTER OR INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS.

Are you an organization or company that cares about the news industry or wants to help stand up for journalists? Help #SaveJournalism by incorporating related content into your organization’s internal communications channels.
