Media Policy Briefing

The Media Policy briefing brings you this month an account of Tim Cook's address before 500 Italian students, discussing Apple's position on fake news, augmented reality and digital taxation.

We analyse for you the potential new regulations that tech companies face around the world. 

Also included is the announcement of the publication of our yearly World Press Trends Report, the primary source of data on the newspaper industry worldwide. 

Finally we draw your attention to the US led campaign #SupportRealNews: WAN-IFRA is a partner, we suggest you join too.

Tim Cook discusses fake news, AR and taxes with Italian youth

Fake news, augmented reality and digital taxation were among the topics that Tim Cook discussed on the stage of Italian youth literacy initiative Osservatorio, with President Andrea Ceccherini, multimedia journalist Maria Latella and more than 500 students.


Tech companies facing the prospect of further regulation

Internet companies are increasingly confronted by the possibility of new legislative action, as debates about hate speech, illegal content and political advertising rage on around the world.


New report: World Press Trends 2017

Trust in traditional media is perhaps at an all-time low – but, ironically, it is the crucial factor underpinning radical change and future success in the news industry, the new World Press Trends 2017 report finds.

In addition to trust, this year’s report features the themes “from reach to relationships” and “advertising rebooted.”


WAN-IFRA partner in campaign to counter spread of fake news

The US-led campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of news produced by trusted news organisations that employ high-quality, investigative journalists.
