Is Tech Reporting Pessimistic About Tech?

Feb 22 2017 - 3:30pm - 5:00pm
Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), 1101 K Street, NW, Suite 610A, Washington, DC, 20005, United States

The way the media portrays different issues shapes public opinion, and public opinion, in turn, has an impact on policy. Therefore, the tone of the media can have important implications for how policymakers ultimately approach different issues. In a new report, ITIF explores how the media has portrayed technology over the past 30 years and finds that there has been a notable shift in the tone of coverage towards a more pessimistic view of technology. Join ITIF for a presentation of the report findings as well as a panel discussion about trends in tech reporting and the way that citizens, businesses, and policymakers should adapt to this changing environment.
