I won’t be going to this since it’s $25 for non-members of the City Club of Cleveland ($15 for members). The future of news interests me, especially as we transition from the hard roles of journalist and monolithic news organization to journalist/blogger and citizen/blogger. I don’t think I’m alone when I say I get most of my information from Google. That is, I prefer to aggregate news from numerous sources, and research news, supposed “facts” and “science”. It’s unfortunate that the news media cannot be trusted, but that is the state of things. I hope someone reports on this, because I’d like to hear what the panelists have to say.
