Why Journalism Matters

We've added a new MGP video to our archive (watch it above, or click here to see it full-sized). When some 100 journalists, technologists, academics and citizens gathered March 1-4, 2009 at The Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla., documentary videographer Melissa Cornick asked them why journalism matters. The participants were part of the Journalism That Matters gathering, "The New News Ecology." For more info about the event, go to:
