10/27/11: The Rise of the Audience
New technologies allow anybody to record history's first draft. As legacy media outlets strain to employ these tools, a new class of bloggers and "citizen journalists" are using them to carve their niche outside of the mainstream media. But what do these changes mean for the audience? Have they changed our expectations for what news should be and how it should be delivered? A panel of guests joins Doug on Thursday to wrap up our Future of Journalism series at the Hinckley Institute of Politics.
