Another interesting panel  at BWE- alarming comment just made from someone on panel who is old media
 - "how many of you in the audience want to be journalists?  - he then says, well, in future, there's not going to be someone to employ you, because there are so few journalism jobs" does this get the blogosphere? Is it a view of old media that new media is wannabe? Surely the point is when will all journalists become bloggers, not the other way around.
Rosen (NYU) and Solis (CNN) arguing politely about fact checking and ethics; Rosen gets round of applause for pointing out that newsrooms are not havens of perfect ethics and factuality!
