In the current news ecosystem, filter bubbles, echo chambers, misinformation and viralized fake news are rampant. We will address how artificial intelligence (AI) could, on the one hand, help journalists in reporting more accurately (tools for fact checking, for helping reporters to have a more comprehensive knowledge of a topic or by doing alienating tasks and letting journalists focus on the relevant, added-value work) and, on the other hand, affect the freedom of the press (misuse of bots, personalized services and marketing and advertising campaigns to manipulate people) as well as the dangers of not having a human being behind the news.
