Live-Blogging: The Future of International NewsFebruary 11, 2009
Yesterday (February 10th), I had the chance to live-blog at the UBC School of Journalism 10th anniversary celebration.
The topic? The future of international news.
It was an exciting evening as a panel of experienced Canadian journalists talked about the future of international reporting.
Times are tough in the mainstream media, as conglomerates bleed red ink, newsrooms shrink, and all expenditures are scrutinized.
The panel talked about these challenges and several others:
- How can we improve international news with shrinking foreign bureaus?
- How do you connect Moose Jaw with the Democratic Republic of the Congo?
- What do Canadians contribute to international reporting?
- Do Canadians always need to know how stories directly affect Canadians?
A lively discussion between passionate Canadian voices.
