Boundary Battles: What is a Journalist and Why Does it Matter?

10:15am - 11:15am

As traditional media's role has become challenged by citizen fact checkers offering commentary on events and increasing amounts of original reporting, journalists and editors have often responded by setting up boundaries between who is a "real reporter"and who isn't. This panel will re-visit some of the major battles of this ongoing war, while revealing what the real debates should be about.
