These days, anyone with a smartphone or a laptop can report on the news, blasting out updates on [...]social media outlets to millions of people around the world. The question is, are they journalists?
That was the topic that a panel of news and public relations professionals tackled at the conference The Media Landscape: How Social Journalism Is Changing the News Industry. The group discussed how social media benefits journalism, and why, despite hard times facing the news business, journalists are still essential to society.
