MMA’s MOJo - keeping media honest by monitoring online journalism

11 July 2012

Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) answered a call to enter the African News Innovation Challenge and submitted its COOLEST idea to transforming the way African media work. MMA’s proposal is titled MOJo - keeping media honest by monitoring online journalism.

The entry proposes the creation of a ‘plug & play’ toolkit of analytical software for African journalism observatories to keep media honest & help improve media professionalism. This will enable media audiences to objectively monitor who owns or controls the media, or when journalists retroactively change their published articles (self-censorship), or when they’re regurgitating corporate or government press releases without independent reportage, or how they’re correcting mistakes in their reportage.
