What is a good news rescue mission?
A good news rescue mission is a campaign that helps save newsworthy stories from being deleted or hidden by social media platforms. It was founded by the organization News Rescues, which uses artificial intelligence and human curation to identify and promote important pieces of news.
The first step in any good news rescue mission is identifying which social media platforms are suppressing the news. After that, the campaign tries to reach out to those platforms and explain why these stories deserve to be seen. If all else fails, they use their artificial intelligence capabilities to find new ways to share suppressed stories.
Overall, good news rescue missions are important because they help keep important stories from disappearing. Not only that, but they also raise awareness about how social media can be used to manipulate the public.
Who started the rescue mission?
In early February, a group of rescuers set out to save a group of stranded hikers in Utah’s Mount Timpanogos. Thanks to the help of social media and the internet, the group was able to communicate with one another and mount a coordinated rescue mission.
After two days of trekking, the team reached the peak of Mount Timpanogos only to find that their quarry had already been saved. The rescuers’ efforts were for naught, but they received plenty of good news in return: thanks to their efforts, another group had also been able to make it to safety.
What was the rescue mission?
The two Indian nationals who were rescued after being stranded on a small island in the Andaman Sea for more than a week have been flown back to India. The men, identified as Jeevan Singh and Palwinder Singh, were found safe and sound on the rocks of Thila Island on June 14th after an intense search by a team of Coast Guard officials and other volunteers.
“We are happy that these brave men have been safely brought back home,” said PRO-SECPAT Arjun Varma, PRO-SECPAT spokesperson. “Their ordeal has drawn global attention and we are grateful to all those who participated in the search.”
The men had started their journey from Kolkata on May 26th, but poor weather conditions forced their vessel to seek shelter at Thila Island. The island is only accessible by boat and there was no mobile signal or any means of communication with the outside world.
The two men were spotted by a member of the public on June 13th and informed about their situation through an emergency beacon which was activated when they landed on the island.
What are some examples of good news rescue missions?
Some good news rescue missions are when a community comes together to help find and rescue a person who is missing or has been lost. This can be done through online searches, social media campaigns, or organizing volunteers to look for the individual.
Another example is when a group of people comes together to clean up an area that has been damaged by natural disasters like floods or hurricanes. Good news rescue missions can also take the form of supporting people who are facing difficult times, such as orphans in need of sponsorship or victims of abuse.
How can you be a part of a good news rescue mission?
There are good news rescue missions and then there are amazing news rescue missions. The latter category is made up of journalists, citizens, tech experts, and others who band together to help restore balance in the world’s news ecosystem.
Each year, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) releases its World Press Freedom Index, which measures how free the world’s press is. In recent years, Europe has fared poorly in comparison with other regions, falling two spots to number 47 out of 180 countries surveyed.
Enter the European Journalism Center’s (EJC) Good News Rescue Mission. Launched in early 2016, this platform provides journalists with access to digital tools and resources that can help them report more accurately and objectively about their respective countries and cultures.
Through E-J C’s Good News Rescue Mission portal, reporters have access to training courses in data visualization and storytelling as well as software tools like Google Sheets and WordPress to increase their reporting efficiency. The mission also awarded grants totaling €120,000 ($133,647) across eight countries in 2016.
“With the release of the World Press Freedom Index every year we see a lot of downward momentum for Europe,” said Ieva Zandonellaite-Kauneckaitė from Lithuania who led a project on promoting independent media at EJC after becoming disillusioned with Lithuanian state-run media during her research trip to North America last year.”
