At this moment, I’m blogging from the Franklin Center‘s Future of Journalism Symposium. They have three sessions beginning today. The topic today is: “Transforming the Media Landscape: The Crisis and Opportunity in Journalism”.
The speakers are: Jason Stverak, President of the Franklin Center; Steven Greenhut, VP of Journalism for the Franklin Center; Will Swaim, Managing Editor at the Franklin Center.
Will runs the great website Watchdog.org which has non-profit reporters stationed in many of our state capitals.
This is a very informative panel discussing how Franklin Center came to be after many “for-profit” reporters were fired from their state capital “beats” after the 2008 recession. Franklin Center stepped up and through innovation formed a national network of reporters who are dedicated to telling the truth about the people’s government.
Great panel so far….
UPDATE: The symposium is being livestreamed at this link.
