What constitutes news in the Digital Age, and who is most qualified to report it? This program takes an insightful look at the growing marginalization of the mainstream press in the face of the digital communication revolution through the eyes of journalists, bloggers, scholars, and the twentysomethings who are driving the consumption and production of news. The merits and liabilities of citizen journalism are weighed, and concerns such as whether Big Media has lost its objectivity or blogging is inherently narcissistic are considered. A blend of skepticism and enthusiasm, That's News to Me makes one point upon which everyone agrees: journalism is fundamentally changing—but will it be for better or worse?
