Media Institute Creates Digital Media Center
ARLINGTON, Virginia—The Media Institute has announced the creation of a new program that will focus on the key issues of today’s digital revolution, the Digital Media Center.
The goal of the Digital Media Center, according to The Media Institute, is to examine issues in the digital realm to inform the way forward for innovators and policymakers, providing a post-pandemic perspective on key digital issues. Some of the main issues that should be focused on include privacy, cybersecurity, online advertising, content moderation, and digital trust.
The Digital Media Center will officially launch on August 27, coinciding with the Communications Forum Virtual Luncheon featuring TMI Distinguished Fellow Stuart N. Brotman, who will coordinate activities for the Digital Media Center program.
The Media Institute has defined three main objectives for the activities of the Digital Media Center: to serve as a forum to bring professionals together to exchange ideas; define the parameters of the problem; and approach problem solving with a presumption in favor of American democratic values.
“Thanks to the expertise and innovative approach of Stuart Brotman, the Digital Media Center will allow The Media Institute to bring its unique perspective to the digital world while continuing to address issues affecting all media and telecommunications companies. “, said Richard Kaplar, president of the Institute.
The Media Institute plans to seek financial support for the Digital Media Center from companies and organizations that have an interest in digital issues.
