The application of artificial intelligence technology to news production is a crucial direction for the high-quality development of the news industry. AI technology has the potential to effectively empower the news industry in various aspects, including setting news topics, producing news content, and shaping news dissemination. However, there are currently some potential risks associated with AI's empowerment of the news industry, such as undermining the cognitive abilities of news audiences, damaging the credibility of the news industry, and inducing social and cultural biases. Therefore, news professionals and relevant regulatory authorities should adopt the following strategies:Firstly, establish a value optimization mechanism to promote the integration of technological ethics into the news industry;Secondly, construct a content-oriented mechanism to enrich the effective supply of news discourse content;Lastly, build a content supervision mechanism to promote the ethical development of artificial intelligence.
