Gizmodo states:

We believe there is a strong need from the public to make as many documents public as possible, as quickly as possible. To this end, we have partnered with a small group of independent observers, who join us in establishing guidelines for responsible review of documents prior to publication. The mission is to minimize costs to individual privacy or the pursuit of other harm while ensuring responsible disclosure of the greatest amount of information in the public interest.

The people committee that Gizmodo has chosen to work with includes:

Daniel Kahn Gillmor, senior technologist of the ACLU Speech, Privacy, and Technology project.

Pri Bengani, Principal Investigator, Tow Center for Digital Journalism, Columbia University.

Michael Zimmer, Associate Professor of Computer Science, Marquette University.

Damon McCoy, Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, New York University Tandon School of Engineering.

Laura Edelson, PhD student in computer science, New York University Tandon School of Engineering.

Ethan Zuckerman, associate professor of public policy, information and communications, University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Gizmodo hopes to work alongside these experts to review internal Facebook documents and develop a series of internal research posts. Gizmodo notes that expert review is necessary so that Gizmodo does not “give criminals and spies a roadmap to undermine the controls Facebook has put in place to defend itself against propaganda that spreads lies, hatred and the fear”.

Gizmodo plans to release its first batch of documents in the coming days, Breitbart News will continue to report on the situation as more information becomes available.
