News Media vs. Social Media: Can Both Survive?

Diane Dwyer, News Anchor, NBC Bay Area

Monday Night Philosophy explores the disruptive force of the Internet throughout the established news media. The future of newspapers is in doubt, broadcast news is being splintered into niche markets, and no one knows who will pay for relatively objective but labor-intensive international reporting. Into the breach steps Facebook and other social media, with blogs and personal reporting.  But where is the editorial control? Join Dwyer for a candid talk.
