Jeff Larson introduces The Markup

Jeff Larson, Managing Editor of The Markup, explains how this new nonprofit news start-up plans to investigate how powerful institutions are using technology in ways that impact people and society. “Whether that is reshaping the news we get and what we believe; how elections play out; our jobs and how we get them; how we access goods and services and what we pay for them; or who goes to prison versus who remains free. … That’s the problem The Markup aims to fix,” he says. Working alongside Julia Angwin and others, The Markup will start publishing next year from New York.
