US government discusses the future of journalism

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is holding a two-day workshop to explore how the internet has affected journalism. But this is not just another workshop. "How will journalism survive in the internet age?" brings together some of the most important figures in actual journalism, among them Rupert Murdoch, Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post and the Guardian columnist Jeff Jarvis.

"The answer is not to save newspapers. The goal should be to assure the continuation of journalism."
