In Repressive Countries, Citizens Go ‘Dark’ to Share Independent News

This report discusses bringing independent news to audiences in repressive media environments. In this context, the publication explores two case studies (from Russia and Turkey) that provide recommendations for other media operating in similar environments. The gist of the story is that it is imperative to know where your audience is, and how it would like to engage. Alternative distribution strategies can play a role here, such as sharing news through WhatsApp.
