In our social mediated, turbo driven world of news is the journalist still in charge of content? If not, at what cost?  When content is driven by the news consumer should the journalist role change from gatekeeper to educator? Harkening back to 1990’s movements of civic journalism, but impacted by a 24/7 visually driven, social mediated new cycle should news literacy become a required course for all citizens, scholars and students?  Key questions that demand answers this panel will explore.
Moderator: Bill Silcock, Cronkite School/Arizona State University
