Independent, fact-based journalism is at the forefront in the battle against digital propaganda, manufactured news and intensifying attacks on press freedom. In order to address this, the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism (Columbia J-School) and its Tow Center for Digital Journalism (Tow Center) have placed a dedicated emphasis on computation and investigative reporting in their instruction and programming. To bolster this effort, support from The Tow Foundation will be used to fund a Tow Computational Fellow at the Tow Center and a Tow Postgraduate Computational Fellow at Columbia J-School. The Tow Computational Fellow will work in the emerging field of digital forensics to research and analyze the state of information security in the digital age. Similarly, the Tow Postgraduate Computational Fellow will help students and recent alumni doing in-depth reporting in the public interest, with an emphasis on using data to find and illustrate stories.
