Adapting Journalism to the Web (MIT Communications Forum)

Held April 5, 2012 at MIT.

New communications technologies are revolutionizing our experience of news and information.  The avalanche of news, gossip, and citizen reporting available on the web is immensely valuable but also often deeply unreliable.  How can professional reporters and editors help to assure that quality journalism will be recognized and valued in our brave new digital world?
