COLORS 86: Making the News
News is something somebody doesn’t want printed. All else is advertising.

In 2011, news of Osama bin Laden’s assassination was broken by a Pakistani IT consultant’s tweet. The next year, a computer algorithm composed nearly 400,000 articles on Little League baseball for small-town newspapers across the United States. Now, print journalism has been declared America’s fastest-shrinking industry, but across Africa, newspaper circulation has risen by more than 30 percent. COLORS 86: Making the News reveals the backstage of contemporary journalism: With stories on drone-wielding paparazzi, terrorist press releases and anti-mafia vigilante television anchors – “Making the News” explores how world events are selected, shaped, and sent to you in time for breakfast.
