Talk about being caught in the crossfire at the George Mason University Campus. Fox News’ Juan Williams and Washington Post columnist Steven Pearlstein went at it a few times during our “What Happened to Journalism” panel. I have to admit I sat quiet through most of it.. as they battled out opinions over newspapers charging for content and whether reporters are still digging hard for the scoop. I commented more on social media and whether it’s threatening journalism. I also talked about this big experiment reporters are undergoing today in newsrooms across the nation. We’re all trying to find the best way to use these new online tools and access to enhance our coverage. I added I don’t think the web is gonna kill TV. People want the access the internet gives them… but still want the comfort of television and those on it. One of my former professors Steve Klein brought his news reporting class. It was great to meet aspiring journalists and also see my former intern Britt Wright again! Special shout out to Jack Censer, Dean of College of Humanities and Social Sciences for organizing the event and former ABC News correspondent and GMU Board of Visitor’s Kathleen deLaski for moderating the discussion.
