Ash and her friends are reporters. They were ready to lead their school news show, “The News at Nine”, sponsored by Van Ness Media, when an unfortunate incident involving a dancing teacher, an irresponsibly reported story and a viral video got them kicked off the crew. So Ash, Maya and Brielle decide to start their own news show, “The Underground News”. And soon they stumble on a big lead: Van Ness Media, the educational company that provides their school’s software, has been gathering data from all the kids at school. And as they dig deeper, they start to reconsider the meaning of privacy, especially as it pertains to what we all do online. In The Renegade Reporters, The Social Dilemma meets sixth grade in Baltimore City. Order your copy here
