Superpanel: Journalism Next: Impact of Aggregators, Blogging and Social Networking on the Industry

Friday, Oct. 19

With Google News and other increasingly popular aggregator services delivering news content catered to individual tastes, are editors worrying too much about what to put on the front door? Hear the diverse viewpoints of leaders from new media outlets and the online arms of traditional news sources in our special ONA SuperPanel.
