CHCH Call - what now?

From The Panel, 4:08 pm on 16 May 2019

A meeting overnight in Paris oversaw all the major tech companies sign-up to a first of its kind agreement, the Christchurch Call. The summit was initiated by the New Zealand Prime Minister Ardern and the French President Emmanuel Macron. Seventeen governments have signed up to it, as well as the tech big guns, Amazon, Facebook, Daily Motion, Google, Microsoft, QWant, Twitter, and You tube. Peter Thompson of Victoria University Wellington talks about the part the big bucks play in media decison-making.
