BKC's Ethan Zuckerman and Fernando Bermejo, along with Jason Baumgartner, Emily Ndulue, and Joan Donovan examine Media Cloud findings on the Christchurch tragedy in New Zealand.
"It seems, from our findings, that more journalists are stepping back from the 'who, what, where, how, and why' to questions of how to prevent tragedy. With platforms as a distribution system, this problem is much more complicated. Digitization has made local news globally accessible, and it’s a very short distance from 'It can’t happen here' to 'It’s happening everywhere.'”
