Nieman Reports Fall 2009: "Let's Talk: Journalism and Social Media"
The Fall 2009 issue of Nieman Reports, the quarterly magazine of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard, discusses journalism and social media.
"From blogs to vlogs, Facebook to MySpace, Twitter to Flickr, Delicious to reddit, words and images bounce around the globe, spreading wide and fast. Journalists are adapting to the ever-shifting terrain carved out of these conversations. In this issue they describe changes in how they work and what they produce, explore emerging ethical issues, and propose principles of active engagement. In Words & Reflections, essays touch on foreign news reporting, Afghanistan, netroots, objectivity, journalists’ political leanings, and Cold War spies." – Melissa Ludtke, Editor
