Amidst “concerns” regarding accuracy in media and the potential for “fake news” to influence elections and policy, the Trump Administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is compiling a database to track “media influencers,” including journalists, correspondents and bloggers.
On April 3, 2018, DHS posted a solicitation notice for a contractor to create a “Media Monitoring Services” database.
According to the DHS’s “Statement of Work” (RNBO-18-00041_SOW_-_Draft.docx), the chosen contracting company will perform the following “media monitoring” services:
- Monitor and track traditional news sources as well as social media for coverage relevant to Washington, DHS or a particular event, to include:
- > 290,000 global news sources.
- Online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, local sources, national/international outlets, traditional news sources, and social media.
- > 100 languages, including Arabic, Chinese and Russian.
- Translation function to instantly translate these articles to English.
- Analyze the media coverage in terms of content, volume, sentiment, geographical spread, top publications, media channels, reach, AVE, top posters, influencers, languages, momentum, circulation.
- Monitor the public activities of media members and influencers by “location, beat and influencers”.
- Create for users to access a 24/7 password-protected, online platform, mobile app, and media influencer database, including journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc.
